Indentify Cities Quiz

I await the entrance of smug twats from stage left after their short tour of Google…

Tried quoting it but just accidentally click on a different one than I mean to and can’t change it so:

1.B, 2.B, 3.C, 4.D, 5.D, 6.C, 7.D,8.D, 9.A, 10.C

8/10 on U turns. Got last two wrong.

3, 9 and 10 are wrong. I got 7 too BTW.

Got the Robinho one wrong. In my defence, so did he.


Yeah, trick question that one, 8/10 for me, got 9 and 10 wrong.

Got 9/10 with no Googlies involved. Like SoS above, I put the club that Robinho meant to say. Anyway, I am a smug twat.

Bonus Christmas question. Whose work is this?

I once had a office job that I found boring and unfulfilling. I spent a long time pondering the same question posed on this thread…do I hand in my notice without any job to go to or not? I was single at the time and renting and these things need to be taken into consideration. Anyway, one day, in November, I woke up and I had a feeling that I needed a change and that something or someone was pushing me for a change. I came close to handing my notice in but got cold feet. I could tell I was unhappy at work, I was putting on weight and not taking pride in my personal appearance. I had an unkempt beard, not one of those hipster ones. A few weeks went on and I was still unhappy, putting on weight and feeling that I should be doing something else. I finally had enough, almost was almost compelled to hand my notice in. So I did, a week before Christmas. I remember going home feeling happy and sad at the same time, excited about the future but worried about life. That night I slept well and the very next day I was headhunted and have been very happy where I am ever since. They have me my own company car, more of a sleigh than a car and a suit to wear, nice and red. They seemed to like the fact that I had put on a lot of weight and encouraged me to keep growing the beard. It was refreshing to come across a company who looked beyond appearances. I have never been so happy and laugh more now than ever before. And the best thing of all is that I only work one day a year and if people are cunts then I get to fuck their year up.

I don’t remember his name but his catchphrase was 'rub it little Bletch - like you are trying to create an oxbow lake from a silted river!’
