    You did not come last... you got three correct answers in time to score points and probably many more right but not answered in time.

    Not just about knowing the answers... have to be quick on the keyboard too... and a fast internet connection... :Wink:

    Anyway... you are meant to enjoy yourself... the quiz is not like football... the quiz is only a game.

    Your lot are doing well Paul... hope it lasts for you.

    Kath failed to answer one footy question but scored maximum points on the colour one... I hung my City shirts on her washing line when I was there having the Chief Mechanic, Sheriff John maintain the Wagon for me... so she knew the colour!.

    Morally Dingray might well be the most Northern but technically Rolfarris is as I believe his wife comes from the Faroe Isles. If you look at the Members Map (which featured in the earlier question) the information was there.

    A cunning plan or what?

    Hi Jenny,

    I believe you can find both spellings are accepted these days and even if they are not every one knows that spelling doesn't matter on this Forum...:Rofl1: :Rofl1:

    If you really need to know the thingy spread answer (after thinking about the clue)
    the magic word is "Google"... that's what the quizzers did! (or guessed) :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    So the correct answer to the P & P one was, 'A knitter who can't spell' then?

    Now - I really thought you might be a bit more devious than you were with the card trick question, JJ ! I know I would try to be, were I thinking up quiz clues!

    Although I thought Q1 actually showed some promise there, just by calling it a fruit - even though it is a fruit. IYSWIM LOL

    Marron glace obviously!

    :Rofl1:

    By the way, what DO you call a female alligator? Madam?

    Hi Kath.

    The quiz is held every Thursday at 8pm.

    It takes place in the Chat area of the forum.

    If you are on the front page, look to the left hand side and you see "Our Community".

    In that list the is the Chat Room.

    It you click on Chat Room you will get a choice of "rooms" to enter. The quiz is in the "Quiz Room."

    Do you really, really, really want me to post all the answers? Couldn't you just "Google" the ones you don't know? :Wink:

    But if you insist... :Rofl1:

    JJ :Cool:

    Ah... the answer to this one caused uproar!

    The answer I wanted was "Cow".

    Apparently they can also be called "Tresor" but I didn't know this... so only "cow" scored points.

    Still... Rule 1 is The Quiz Master is ALWAYS right in the Funster Quiz :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    That's my SOH I'm afraid - I was just being daft, or perhaps the totally different kind of nut is me?

    You know, a bit like deliberately affording uniqueness, degrees of itself?

    VERY unique, EXTREMELY unique, MORE unique etc.

    Impossible !

    See? :Rofl1:
