How Do You Keep Milk From Souring
Broadcast: 14th July 1944

A quiz show spoof that lampooned other quiz shows of the time such as Information, Please
and The Quiz Kids
. The format of the show was simple. Three nitwits made up the "board of experts". They spent more time trying to figure out what the question was than actually giving a sensible answer. The questions were as ludicrous as “What office does a presidential candidate seek?” and “Is general McArthur a captain, lieutenant or a major?”
Critics slated the show when it first appeared and said it wouldn’t last. They were wrong. The show ran for nine years.
