Very tenuous jump made from ‘tweet ‘ to ‘to eat‘ , presume read as ‘treat ‘.
If this is just the run up , goodness knows what the actual quiz questions will be like.

No - it's a homophone and tweet sounds like 'to eat'.
It rhymes with but doesn't sound like 'treat'.

Swanaldo did say early on that homophones were the way to go.
Or was it the 'waiter go'? (with spoons ready) :devilish:

Right , slippery one that. Still going to be a helluva quiz though if the questions are that tough.

Tenuous or not I must admit I quite enjoyed playing around with those homophones once Swanny had given the tip that it was the method to employ.

At one point I had got as far as 'beaky leather' and was pleased to discover City had once had a player called Bulcock ..
