    If Stroudy wins it, despite being the Quizmater, you can really start asking questions.

    I humbly beg to differ. The fecking exeweb clock seems to change time on every log in.

    AMENDED ODDS

    2/1 Swanny
    3/1 Lionel, Spoonz
    8/1 Greyhound, HH12, STURTZ, Oman, Elgy, A2K, TerryHall
    10/1 contrabombarde
    12/1 Avening Posse, sumner7
    16/1 RedPaul
    22/1 Freddie, feverpitch
    25/1 Mr Jan Yeo, RaeUK
    50/1 Jason H, any clown apart from MDC
    100/1 Ian Sideman/Sideys Back
    1,000/1 Lez, Liz The Grecian, Poultice

    The market is now beginning to take shape. Bookie intelligence undermined by the disappearance of Elgy's scoreboard 2014 and Lionel's failure to post a final board 2016.

    My head started to throb when I read that.

    It is not the old school tie you need to worry about. What you need is to know who is in the NC

    POLITE QUESTIONS FOR STROUDY

    Unlike the parsimonious Lionel, have you engaged the services of a PA/GA ?

    Have you had a man flu jab ?

    We need to remember the kerfuffle caused by these omissions yesteryear.

    No but I have the full support of my local Men's Group, having discussed it at Opening Circle and confirmed at the closing Group Hug

    Yes I reckon that's what made me ill much of October, culminating in the birthday gummy eyes last week. Should have stuck to the Echinacea.

    My one piece of advice to Stroudy is donít bother with a fancy leaderboard. It very quickly becomes a right chore.
