Lee and I waded through a mire of pedantry and trivia last week in the latest of our pub quizzes.
I'll post the general knowledge quiz in the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile, here is the politics round with some of the more boring questions bitten off and spat out onto the sawdust floor of best-forgotten memories. Answers on the Fat Roland blog in about a week's time.
Oh and before you switch your brain on, you'll notice some Google things around the site. It's just a bit of fun and I'm fascinated to see what links the Google ads throw up.
Speaking of throwing up, quiz until you are sick at Nine Tenths Full Of Penguins.
