I went with Dundee because my friend from Edinburgh used to be from Dundee, so those were the two I knew.
Sup, later.

I was thinking of saying Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but then I remember Scots were lessers. :twisted:

Australians change Prime Ministers like they change clothes, other than putting shrimp on the barbie and adding an "o" to the first syllable of words, calling a spill is their favourite national pastime.

If you knew even one answer here you scored points. things are very close going into round 2.

Australians only change clothes 6 times in 12 years or Australians routinely switch back and forth between the same 6 Prime Ministers on a daily basis? Either way, gross.

William Shakespeare's ever-changing signature led to much confusion over the spelling of his name, his name was not standardised as we know it until the early-mid 20th century.

Kublai Khan missteps at the start of round 2 and concedes 2 points to all of his opponents.

The Office is one of few shows to be successfully adapted for the U.S. from the U.K., with both versions remaining popular to this day

mutantdevle falls behind the pack, but it's still a tight race.

Theoretically, the highest possible scoring word in Scrabble is Oxyphenbutazone, which can reach 1778 points.

Everyone gains a point. Sorry for the excessive lateness, I recently started a new job.

In legend, Excalibur was the sword of King Arthur, whose existence is a topic of debate amongst historians and due to the lack of historical records, whether he actually existed may never be known.

Everyone gains a point again.

Pink BallAll of them (26)Correct


"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is the most famous example of a pangram sentence, perfect pangram sentences (which use each letter just once) are hard to make in English, an example of a 28 letter pangram is "Waltz, bad nymph, for quick jigs vex", which makes little sense.

Everyone gains a point again.
