Put one answer which whilst correct is not the only answer….. oh well. At least i get a point for entering.

Phil
Member

I have put the answer I think you are trying to get, but Welsh Rarebit is much more than just one item on toast.

Julie

I was just thinking the same thing. You are quite right.

Mary
Member

I saw it on the menu board at the leisure centre when I was ten and thought it was bunny on toast. 🙁

Strange that baby penguins can be called nestlings when they don’t have a nest (maybe Galapagos penguins do?). can’t help but think feetlings would be more appropriate!

Lostkiwi

there are technically 2 answers to today’s (26th) question. One is more popular than the other. I’ve put both. Hope that is ok

Tracy

Query question 18….. 1st ..how big is the hole ??… 2nd… has tiredness been taken into account ??… 3rd… 3 men to make potholes when nature does on its own !!!….

Bernie
Member

If they worked for the city, it would probably take one man half an hour to dig the hole because there would be no one else to talk to or drink beer with.

Karen
Member

Is it wiltshire council workers? Only they take 2 months to do a hole in the road! Lol 😂

Will
