Playing with mum........


Three questions on classical music:

a. what is this........mum "madam butterfly" Paxman "la traviata"
b. what is this........mum "madam butterfly" Paxman "Holst's Planets"
c. what is this....... mum "madam butterfly" Paxman "Madam Butterfly" mum "I KNEW that"

Playing with OH

Paxman: what country borders x,y and z

OH: Lithuania

Paxman: Chile

OH: I don't think so. He's wrong again. It's obviously Lithuania

(OH leaves to get atlas, Looks up Lithuania. Reads several totally unrelated facts. Proudly shouts - see, he was wrong.......)

Mum (10 minutes later) I told you it was Madam Butterfly

So that's University College Oxford 0, mum and OH 3,000,000
