Which of the following statements is the most outrageously untrue?

  1. Tulips are best grown in uranium mulch.
  2. Charles Dickens invented clockwork toothpaste.
  3. Pastry is a powerful aphrodisiac.
  4. David Cameron is an honest man.
  5. Climate change is caused by strawberry jam.
  6. The Austin Allegro was the epitome of seventies cool.

 As in life, there are no prizes for being right.

Around forty years ago looking for a new car one dealer visited was the Austin one. When I sat in the driving seat and tried the gear level it came off in my hand. Then the door would not shut. Yes it was an Allegro. Then I bought a Fiat 132, when I took it around the old Nurburgring it gave a lovely ride.

Demetrius - we tried an Allegro but patriotism only goes so far. We ended up with a Nissan - or Datsun as they then were.

No prize for being right, but the modern trend is a fixed penalty for being wrong.

Woodsy - and year by year they are more severe.
