LOL if I didn't get 100% there would be something wrong wink.gif I had to do a double take on the cheeses one though. I always thought that cheese was singular and plural, like sheep...

83% as well, which I'm quite proud of. Damn yards question threw me off though! Hmm, we have the book, maybe I'll actually read it, though I hear it gets really dull....

I got "75% STICKLER!". The "Of course there weren't enough tickets to go round." bit caught me out. As far as I'm concerned, without a comma it sounds as though we all knew there wouldn't be enough (a 'told you so' moment). With a comma, it means that it was a logical deduction.
