Their weird vocabulary. Plot hole?


They mix it up between formal words and poetic wordings. Given how stupid they are (Joan of arc is Noah's wife?) it doesn't explain why they talk the way they do.

Maybe it's a different type of intellect.

Having a decent vocabulary doesn't mean they'd be good at history.

I got the impression that their ignorance in the subject was down to them not paying attention at school more than anything. And I doubt Ted really thought that Joan Of Arc was Noah's wife. He was just being a smart ass, because he didn't know the correct answer.

Not a plot hole. It's for comedic effect, and it works brilliantly.
