FACT: RAC's fact about horses came from the Times "questions answered" section a few days ago and was debunked today - I know cos I just read it while eating a baked tater with cheese and tuna (mmmmmmm). In fact, there is no rule about horse statues becuase it is too hard to make them rear - most rearing statues use a tail as a counterbalance and are expensive to make.

At last years's works do, a quiz was organised. A number of staff had to compere and prepare a round of questions.

A colleague and I designed the oh-so-popular "Who's Marx is it anyway?" round.

Quotations from Richard Marx, Karl Marx and Groucho Marx were read out and the teams had to guess who said what.

We thought it funny.

Fact: I have had the same bookmark for over twenty years, and still have (and use) the pen I sat my O Grades and Higeres with. Yet I always lose red biros and till receipts in a matter of hours.

What's "The War Game"? (Clearly not a Dr Who episode).

FACT: Good Omens is a jolly good book. Watch Dogma after you read it for some uncanny similarities.
