Winston Churchill, one of the greatest Britons ever or... a nodding dog? A recent survey found that many teenagers are so engrossed in reality TV and computer games that they think Winston Churchill is an insurance salesman.

Of course, the great leader's jowly features do bear some similarity to Royal Bank of Scotland's well-known bulldog. But the canine's oratory skills would be no match to those of the wartime prime minister. "We will insure them on the beaches" doesn't have quite the same ring.
