What's the one that I heard years ago, something like name the only London Underground station not to contain any of the letters of the name of some fish in it. The answer is St. John's Wood West or something, can't for the life of me remember what the fish was.

Nah, it's St John's Wood North. Or is it East? Can't remember.

The fish is mackerel, and the correct name of the station is ?St. John's Wood?, apparently.

 

Who the feck sits at home making up things like that?

There's a bloke in Brighton called Quiz Dave (he used to be called Disco Dave in the 70's as he ran a mobile Disco) who compiles and sells quizzes to pubs for a living. If you go past his house, at least 9 times out of 10 he'll be sat in the window on his computer Googling away for questions.

 

So, in answer to your question; Him. Probably.

How do you know that's what he's doing?

 

And why are you looking through strange mens' windows in Brighton?

1. He's well known and I have taken part in some pub quizzes that he's done.

 

2. I'm a pervert.

Did a pub quiz last night (came 5th out of 18 but I was in a team of slackers), and guess who was there? Quiz Dave!!

 

Mind you, I had problems recognising him with his clothes on... :hmm:
