There are several answers & a couple of different spellings for today’s ferret question, hope they all get accepted

Phil

Succumbed to temptation on today’s. Put the name I usually use for the PM.

Phil

So, was ‘BoJo the clown’ an acceptable answer?

Sally
Member
Sally

Ah, turns out much tamer than the ones that sprang to my mind when I read your first comment… 😉

That is the one I use in polite company.

I didn’t expect the Spanish Inquisition.

Janice
Member
Janice

Hmmmm…. I usually do the comps just after 11.00 and I could have sworn that yesterday’s question said “country.” which I thought was a bit odd so that was the question I answered. Was this a typo which was subsequently corrected? Just curious!

Maggie
Member
Maggie

🦋Hi Janice, I can verify that the number 24 question definitely said “ county “ as Daniel confirmed. I did check it a couple of times before putting the correct answer as I didn’t want to put the wrong one !😂😂 At least you get 1 point for trying. Good luck !🤞🍀🦋

I asked my husband where the river was as he is really good at geography. I checked, he got it wrong (he says there must be more than one lol)

Paul

theres an Afon Wyre in wales which in english means river wyre

Christine
Member
Christine

I can’t believe I fell into the trap when answering the question about John and his mother! I put 60 instead of 50! Oh the shame!

Luke
Member
Luke

The oldest math trick in the book, I think most of us have done it at least once when answering that question. haha

Elsee
Member

Finally, one I knew the answer to. (And yes Phil, I do know you should never end a sentence with a preposition)

Phil

Me again!
I assume you mean standard sudoku puzzle?
I have played variants with between 6 and 15 numbers.

Tracy
Member
Tracy

I also momentarily pondered over the answer but the other variants are not plainly called ‘sudoku’ they are called mini sudoku, killer sudoku etc. and are all known as variants of sudoku. So the question and answer were self explanatory really. T.x

Phil
Member
Phil

Fair point.

Squids also have three hearts.

(I believe we had this question in another recent quiz, and there were arguments after that one!)

Phil

Is it too much to ask for grammatically correct questions?

Andrew
Member
Andrew

Don’t see that it really matters, it doesn’t make the question impossible to understand. Comments like that come across as unnecessarily rude.

Phil
Member
Phil

That was my polite response.

Andrew
Member
Andrew

I bet you’re a joy to know.

Elsee
Member
Elsee

All look fine to me.

Wendy
Member

I think we all knew what the question meant.

Tracy
Member
Tracy

Phil I can be far to pedantic at times but even I allow for human error! After all Daniel is merely only human like the rest of us and non of us are perfect! T.x

Watch out, you’ll upset the snowflakes in here, like Andrew!

Christine

I’ve put an answer, but very puzzled by the spelling of Malbrough plus Maggie’s comment??

Lostkiwi
Member
Lostkiwi

As a kiwi I know the spelling should be Marlborough. That’s also how its spelled on the bottle of wine I’m currently drinking 😀🥂

Wendy
Member
Wendy

Think its meant to say Marlborough

Taken from google

Marlborough is a well-known wine-producing region in New Zealand. Thanks to aggressive growth in the export market, the Marlborough wine region is now responsible for the production of 77% of New Zealand’s wine. The most popular varietal is Sauvignon blanc, closely followed by Pinot noir and Chardonnay.

hornetcarp

hornetcarp

should that be Marlborough??

Stuart
Member
Stuart

I thought the same?

Maggie
Member
Maggie

hornetcarp & Stuart, no, the spelling is correct, my sister lives in this country. Good luck to you both !🤞🍀☺️

hornetcarp
Member
hornetcarp

are you sure??? google doesn’t find anything just says ‘malbrough’ is french for ‘duke of marlborough’!!

Maggie
Member
Maggie

My bad guys, I didn’t check the spelling properly and relied on stupid predictive texting, I’m gonna sit in the dunces corner now.🤦🏻‍♀️🥺😞

Tracy
Member
Tracy

I hope the one you mean is the one that says ‘That’s why mum’s go to ……’
because the only other one I can think of was ‘Loved by kids approved by mum’s’ but that was axed after claims it was sexist! 🤦‍♀️ This is the hardest one so far!! T.x

Elsee
Member
Elsee

That was the only one I could think of too. Very hard.

Wendy

Taken from google

Iceland historically advertised with the slogan “Mums Love It”, which was changed to “Are we doing a deal or are we doing a deal?” and “Feel the deal” in the early 2000s.

I assumed it meant what day of the week which is Wednesday this year, It is December 25th Every year not just 2019 so I don’t think that’s what is wanted.

Graham
Member
Graham

It falls on Christmas

Phil
Member
Phil

Is 25 December not the right answer?

Tracy
Member
Tracy

I thought it meant the day it falls on not the date it’s on lol 🤷‍♀️ T.x

Tracy
Member
Tracy

So should today’s answer be in writing or numerical? 🤔🤦‍♀️😏 T.x
