Barista has a link to to the guardian's google-proof? quiz.
In the comments, Nabakov ups the ante with 21 really difficult questions...
The wheel of my aunt has become disengaged. May you be of assistance?
Sometimes i am awed by that Nabs.

That was rather awesome.
(already a contender for GG's 2005 awards?)
btw - did not want to 'Top'(not) with a lame comment on your post David, but I think there is a link between blogging and trivia. Data-philia.

Boynton, your lame posts are terrific. And when you provoke Nabakov and Sedgwick into punning, I am awed by the run.

Thanks awfully, Mr Barista.
Though I think that Sedgwick puns without provocation.
(and another notorious Trvia-phile and
Teetotallizer can give the punters a run for their money)
I think Team blogger would indeed form a rather formidable table at pub trivia, as long as all punning devices were turned off.
And Nabakov rarely stoops so low in the witticism stakes but I have a pun nonetheless in answer to the aunt one.
Q: "The wheel of my aunt has become disengaged. May you be of assistance?"
A: She might consider Limited Slip Differential at 3 am instead.

At 3:00am aunts are known to suffer from slip deprivation.

Aren't some aunts 'enjoying' such sliplessness in the smalls-less hours?

"At 3:00am aunts are known to suffer from slip deprivation."
3:00am!? They should have met my Uncle Sieggie. Ex-RN with a little Ronald Colman pussy-tickler 'tache.
He'd have deprived 'em of their slips at sunset, halfway through their second pink gin...in the back squash court.

Any touch of the Ronald Colman in looks or demeanour and Bob's your Uncle.
