The Tuesday Quiz Question


FeintZebra said...

I don't get it - I can't see any differences?

Uncle Dick Madeley said...

Don't worry, it's not a trick question. I'll get you started...

1. One is Richard Hammond. The other is a ball of wool.
2. Richard Hammond has a nose. The ball of wool has needles.
3. Richard Hammond is pink. The ball of wool is blue.
4. Richard Hammond hosts his own show on BBC1. The ball of wool does stand up on Channel 5.

Richard Hammond nearly killed himself in a high speed thrill chasing ride.

The ball of wool is a ball of wool?

Am I getting the hang of it?

Uncle Dick Madeley said...

Well, yes, but ideally the two things have to be on the same line and with a number. For example:

5. Richard Hammond lives in Wales but the ball of wool only holidays there.

Now, I think that's enough hints. That's 5 down and another 34,495 to go. Take it away Zebra!

6. The ball is made of wool. Richard Hammond is a wool.

7. The ball of wool has two little pricks. Richard Hammond is one of three little pricks.

Uncle Dick Madeley said...

Getting a bit adult there but I'll allow it for the sake of the 34,593 differences you've yet to spot.

PS. You're going great guns. At 2 answers per 15 minutes, you will have this solves within 180 days.

15. Wool is wrinkle resistant. Hammond has paid a surgeon to get rid of his wrinkles.

16. Wool is colourfu. Sir Richard Hammond is bland.

Uncle Dick Madeley said...

Excellent work, Zebra, but you only get the box of Celebrations (350g, void where prohibited by law, only while stocks last) when you hit 34,500.

Andrew said...

17. Wool is taller than Richard Hammond.
18. Richard Hammond is a huge fan of Phil Collins' mid-90s output. Wool prefers the very early Genesis stuff.

Uncle Dick Madeley said...

Andrew, excellent stuff. We'll split the box of Celebrations between yourself and the Zebra. However, you've another 34,487 to go before you can start salivating over the thought of a miniature Bounty bar!

Andrew said...

Wool likes Slovenian film noir. Hammond's favourite movie is Independence Day.

Uncle Dick Madeley said...

Ah, Andrew! That brings back the memories. Slovenian film noir! It's a long time since I had myself some of that. My favourites were always 'Dial M For Macedonia', 'The Big Sheep', and, of course, 'The Lady Vanishes Into A Serbian Prostitution Ring Run From A Bedsit In South Twickenham'. Good times!
