Here we go then.......

1) How long did the Hundred Years War last?
Ten days. It was an excuse made up by soldiers to stop their wives moaning that they were home late from the battle.

2) Which country makes Panama hats?
Taiwan - they make everything else.


3) From which animal do we get catgut?
The dog - but only when he's finished with the rest of the cat.

4) In which month do Russians celebrate the October Revolution?
They don't. Celebrating was banned under Peter The Great Big Party Pooper (to use his often neglected full title).


5) What is a camel's hair brush made of?
Polypropelene - they buy 'em from Boots like the rest of us.


6) The Canary Islands are named after what animal?
ZZ Top - they're 'kin 'airy.

7) What was King George VI's first name?
Hopefully 'Fu'.

8) What color is a purple finch?
Depends if the bruises ever go down.

9) Where are Chinese gooseberries from?
The Johnny no-mates corner of Mr Wongs Disco, Shanghai.
