    Lolwut

    Others believe there was a real Captain Mainwaring leading the nation's home defence during the war and that Dad's Army was based on him while some people think Clark Kent and Indiana Jones were genuine people too, according to Ask Jeeves.
    The confusion between fact and fiction goes both ways, it has emerged, with other respondents to the survey believing Che Guevara, Florence Nightingale and outlaw Jesse James were fictional, not real.

    To be fair I'd like to think Sherlock Holmes did exist too, he's just that cool

    1/5 Britons think putting humorous answers to stupid surveys and seeing their results make national press is hilarious.

    I'm not entirely surprised.

    They're a result of our country's shining education system, where in my experience 15 year old kids thought it was pronounced a "door hin-geh", confess to not owning a single book, don't how to spell cross and ask if the bible is about "that Jesus guy."

    That probably says a lot about the sort of people who use Ask Jeeves.
