    Sorry for the fancy Latin, I just added it incase it was a deceiving question. I wasn't sure if you meant the Largest Fish currently living or the Largest Fish Ever.

    That's Ok Richie - I just thought it was amusing that you went to all that trouble! :p

    Anyway, as promised - here is Question 8, folks! :D
    In the U2 song Vertigo, the lead singer Bono starts by saying: "Uno, dos, tres, catorce!" Why is this sentence technically incorrect?/>

    I really don't know, but I guessed. :(

    Apologies for my little hiatus, guys :(

    The answer to Question 8 is:

    "Uno, dos, tres, catorce!" is Spanish for "One, two, three, fourteen!"

    And yes, while Bono has managed to riggle his way out of that one with some artsy-waffle, I still say never trust the translators... :p It's like a girl on Eurovision a couple of years ago who sang a song in English, even though she couldn't speak a word of it. All was fine until she reached the chorus line: "And then you'll be my butt" [face_laugh] :D

    Anyways, good guess Moose (it's better to guess than not, I always say ;) ), but the point goes to Richie =D=
    Moose: 2 points

    Dar: 1 1/2 points

    Richie: 5 1/2 points

    Nearly there... And now Question 9:
    Before polishing leather shoes with a woolen cloth, they can be made to look spik and span if you rub them with:

    a. banana mash
    b. apple juice or
    c. half an onion

    Nope, I have to admit that neither did I :D

    But, as Moose correctly guessed (=D= ), the answer is (apparently):

    c. Half an onion

    I thought it was banana mash, myself... :confused:
    Moose: 3 points

    Dar: 1 1/2 points

    Richie: 5 1/2 points

    And finally, Question 10:
    In Greek mythology, the Chimera is composed of parts from which three animals?

    a. Lion, Goat, Snake
    b. Goat, Snake, Horse
    c. Horse, Fish, Eagle or
    d. Snake, Eagle, Lion/>/>/>

    Well, that was a good round :D Of course the answer to Question 10 was:

    a. Lion, Goat, Snake

    Congrats to both Moose and Richie for getting it right =D=
    Moose: 4 points

    Dar: 1 1/2 points

    Richie: 6 1/2 points

    So congratulations to Richie on being the winner of *Vader's Pub Quiz* *Hands Richie the shiny new trophy*

    And for being such a good sport, here's an honorary [face_chicken] for you, Moose :D

    Now I shall sign off with the English version of the theme tune... [face_whistling][face_dancing] />/>

    Yes, sorry about that - I was going to link the trophy in properly, but it made a mess of my pretty header rule... :p

    But I'm glad you both like your respective prizes :)

    *Flicks on some disco lights and dances to the theme tune* [face_dancing] Ah, it always makes me :D

    Anyway, how is everyone? :)

    I am tired and stuff. Actually, I'm not sure what I am right now. I think I'm awake, but I could be wrong. [face_tired]

    Nope, definatley not awake - this is the Matrix after all... 8-} :D

    Actually, I was watching that the other day and was thinking that apart from the computers (lol), it hasn't aged all that badly for 10 years... *Grabs zimmer frame*
