    Are you offering odds on which day "farce" will be first called?

    Day 1 or before is a nailed on certainty and The Bookie is too canny to offer that bet.

    I will give you 4/1 that "farce" is not called on or before the end of day 1.

    Disappointing not to feature in the early odds this year obviously my form has been called into question and past performances have not been recognised -

    I say it every year, the shortness of my odds are a complete surprise - in the entire history of the ACQ I have never got a single question right, yet every year the odds suggest I'm in with a shout of a European place.

    Farce.

    Don't worry Fred, this year you will win it by a mile by simply answering Scott Golborne every day. Allegedly.

    Nope. It is for winning the whole thing. My sauces say he is in hard trading for it.

    Beginning to think that there are elements of old school tie and nepotism here...I have had several correct answers here previously including arguably the most difficult one ever (Baedeker raids) and as per last year don’t even make the odds. Fix and farce.
