1.       Which was the first team to win the FA Cup at Wembley?

Answer = Bolton Wanders – beat West Ham 2-0

The match is often referred to as the "White Horse Final" and is commemorated by the White Horse Bridge at the new Wembley Stadium.  Billie the horse was actually grey, but appeared white in the primitive (high-contrast) black and white newsreel footage of the era.

6.       How long is a dog watch at sea?

Answer = 2 hours

Many watch systems incorporate the concept of a dog watch, whereby one watch is split into two shorter watches so that there is an odd number each day. Doing so allows crew members to have a different watch schedule each day.[6] Often, the dog watches are set at dinner time to allow the entire crew to be fed in short order.

How does a penguin build its house?                         Igloos it together.

 

Did you hear about the guy who invented the knock-knock joke?             He won the 'no-bell' prize.

 

I ordered a chicken and an egg online.                      I’ll let you know.

 

I'm reading a book about anti-gravity.                                                        It's impossible to put down!

I know it's not quiz night but this one has just popped back into my mind - dormant for over 20 years.

The question used to be - Which four footballers with O's in their surname have played for England.

The question today will be :-

 Which five male footballers with O's in their surname have played for the England men's team?

Ok - to quell the protest you can have a starter for dix :-

 Peter Osgood - 4 caps, 0 goals (1970–73)

I assume you mean with the surname starting with O, so Osgood as you say; Michael Owen - 89 caps (1998-2008); William Oakley - 16 caps (1895-1901) & Russell Osman - 11 caps (1980-83) 7 Peter O'Dowd - 3 caps (1932-33).

Nope - the surname doesn't have to start with 'O' - they just have to have 3 O's in their surname like Osgood.

I'll let you stew on it - closing down the PC for tonight:)

Bugga, if only I could read questions properly. I guess that's why I failed my 11+ and ended up at Westridge.

Back to the drawing board.

I can only come up with 2 :- Tony Woodcock - 42 caps 1978-86 and Ian Storey-Moore - 1 cap 1970. It's obviously a trick question.
