Which Sci-Fi Character’s Name Has Become The Go-To Answer For Nonsensical Questions In France?

Captain Kirk
Doctor Who
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Spock

Answer: Obi-Wan Kenobi

A good joke has staying power, the kind of allure that keeps people quipping it long after the original joke is uttered. Such is the case with a clever skit from the French comedy show Les Guignols de l’info (or, in English, News Puppets). The show, which parodies and pokes fun at popular culture, has been a staple of French television since the early 1990s and has introduced several humorous phrases into French culture as a result.

One particular cultural injection, and the focus of our trivia inquiry today, hinges on a parody they produced of the French version of the popular television show ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’. In the Les Guignols de l’info skit, there were a variety of nonsensical questions wherein the only constant was that one of the available answers was the name of famed Star Wars universe character Obi-Wan Kenobi. The joke took hold, especially in French internet sub-cultures, and the Obi-Wan Kenobi references started popping up everywhere from offhand jokes to potential answers on questionnaires. When in doubt, and when the question makes no sense, Obi-Wan is your only hope.
