After a break forced upon us by our radio adventures, Eyan and I returned to our quizmasterly roles this month. See previous quiz related shenanigans here, here, here, here and here. Check out one of Eyan's rounds from this month's quiz on his blog of ultimate silliness here.

It was my turn to do the picture round and the sport round and they are presented for your delectation below.

I had the misfortune to be talking with what I can only describe as a 'fashionista' the other day. They made me very very very angry. I was going to write a furious post condemning these fashion nazis. Then I read this magnificently angry article by Charlie Brooker on the same topic and thought I would give you a link to that instead. Read it here.

Ok, offhand, going L-R, top to bottom, Leonardo DiCaprio (sp?), Eddie Murphy, Heath Ledger (looking rather dishy there, actually!), some gal I don't know, Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley, some other guy I don#t know, the lovely Kate Winslet, that gal with the annoying voice - Natalie Portman?, Judi Dench, Will Smith, Steven Spielberg, Peter O'Toole, Clint Eastwood... that last one looks like Meryl Streep.

2. I'd hope it was John Parrott (local hero, yay), but it was probably Davis
3. Tiger Woods?
4. Barcelona?
Hang on, these are all sport. Am I supposed to know these?
10. Probably Tranmere Rovers.

I am far from fashionable myself, but man was that guy on a rant - referring to the linked article, of course. Overall very amusing.

But trust me, men would mourn with deep sorrow if women only spent five minutes a week thinking about their clothes and appearance.

Hi Dave. I'm impressed you even had a go at the sport round. A valiant effort old chap!

Hi Nat, you're probably right. But I certainly agree with his desire to grab fashionable flat caps off the heads of the tits who wear them and throw them onto the nearest roof. I practically choked half a cup of tea over myelf in amusement at that line in the article.
