“The Saltire is which country’s flag?” Depends on the colours involved and/or on the definition of “country” (i.e. does it mean an independent nation which is a member of the United Nations in its own right?)

Okay, some of these questions are a little obscure. It’s not like we are going to know the answers without looking them up.

I think I misread yesterdays question as what is a male animal called. All I could think is that male cats are called Tom cats so Tom must be the answer lol

Susan
Member

I thought the same – that it was Tomcat, I’ve never heard of a turkey being called a Tom.

Haha I put “Hoote-nanny” for Scotland’s New Year’s Eve. I think perhaps that it’s just a Jools Holland thing.

Perhaps Daniel you should read the first line of text about the comp, did we have a quiz on October (copy and paste error I think).

A very unkind/snide comment – I suppose you have never made a mistake (!?!) – and you could at least have been constructive, such as by suggesting that the text be amended to reference “this month” (which could thereafter be copied and pasted and still remain accurate).
