    There could be any number of perfectly valid answers that are not a moose, and the moose answer is only obvious if you happen to know the specific factoid from Lister’s book. You can’t logic your way into accurate 1970s Swedish traffic accident statistics based on the wording of the question alone. You’d need some sort of outside information to correctly answer it.

    I love the moose bit but I don’t 100% buy that question showing up. It absolutely doesn’t matter though.
