“The attempts to be funny continue to be contemptible,” said one happy punter in the comments the other week, and yet again it is time to face that Thursday combination – 15 questions on topical news and general knowledge, peppered with a few jokes. The Pokémon question’s reign of terror may be over, but rest assured there are still two hidden Doctor Who references to spot, the regular presence of Kate Bush and Ron from Sparks, and inexplicably some anagrams exactly when you least want them. It is just for fun, there are no prizes, but there are bonus points on offer if you can make the quizmaster laugh with your comments. Let us know how you get on.
The Thursday quiz, No 27
