    NO! I did my answers in good time and I was pants, I insist that the judge sticks strictly to the cut off point so I have slightly more thana snowball in hell's chance of winning #competitive

    (Also joking) (Except about the not doing so well bit) (I was well funny though!) (And I enjoyed it immensely)

    Me: Sometimes you're lying in the cart with a cold compress on your forehead...


    Deservedly declared winner of Quiz 33 and taking bragging rights of that seriously.

    I think you should get bonus points for being funny.

    Emmie if you were the only one who entered and got nil points you'd still win. Seriously I reckon you're a smart cookie so don't hide your light under a bushel (is that a saying or should it be "don't hide your light under a barrel").

    Oh yes, biiiiiiiig nerd, I just know chuff all about sportsing! If it was a Sci Fi quiz then I'd probably ace it!

    I do get sort of bonus points for funny, I got to amuse Stella so while it won't win me the quiz it does win in life *winning smile*

    The highest score this time came from Jaquaia, but due to the fact her answers were submitted after the deadline, the score doesn't count. So the winner, how has earned the forum bragging rights is........
