BBC Quiz of the Week

Another busy week but this time I had some health to help fight the good fight. We have our State Governor (head of state under QE2) visiting our small community next week so we are flat out getting things into some semblance of tidiness.

Last week we saw Daddy P and Sandy share the dunce’s cap with 2/7 while Rob and the GitWizard topped the class with 6/7.

This week I fluked a 5/7 which seems quite reasonable until I admit to knowing only two of the answers.

So how will you go in this week’s BBC News Quiz of the Week.

    Dammit! They let Klan Great Wizards in but not Talk-back hosts? Makes sense, I suppose … hosts are much more dangerous than Klan Wizards, even Great ones. :-(

  14. You got 6 right! I had to guess (correctly) about the apology, but my downfall was the question about the lucky guy who got the 6 month gig on the island in Australia. Haven’t been paying attention to that situation much.

    • Da bestest job in da woild and you didn’t take note of it!!! Shame, verily shame! Hamilton Island is a paradise on the Great Barrier Reef … 34,000 applications for the job. I’da done it but I’m not too handy with a shifting spanner and I really don’t know how to empty a backed-up toilet. Not that they happen that often, I assume, but I still wouldn’t be able to deal with a plumbing emergency of any kind.

    In my defense, I’d been away on holiday and nearly totally unplugged from the world.

    On the up side, I’m getting fairly comfortable wearing the dunce cap.
