Brain Game: Return of the Son of Bad Poetry
Today's Brain Game is another "poem wot I writ myself." It's a horrible rhyme, granted. But as a riddle, I hope that it isÂ neither too obvious nor too obscure. Good luck!
On aÂ TV, it's a wonder
This 500 5 500
But not quite as fine
As a 5-49.
What is it?
It's a wonder, certainly. And the Roman numerals D-V-D represent 500, 5, and 500.
Of course, the DVD format isn't as visually stunning as its successor, Blu-Ray,Â which is abbreviatedÂ BR.
"BR5-49" was theÂ well-advertised phone number ofÂ Junior Samples' car lot on TV's Hee-Haw and is now the name of a popular country band.
