He didn't get where he is today by stealing somebody else's catchphrase.

Thick

My Thursday nights follow something of a ritualistic pattern. After training, I go and join some mates down the pub and take part in a pub-quiz. It's something of an institution. More so is the fact that our team never have the answers and invariably come last. Coming last results in us picking the specialist subjects for the following week. Unfortunately, this gives us no advantage whatsoever and we come last again, a cycle that has been perpetuated for probably more than three years. We excel at stupid - and we're running out of subjects.

- I do not know all the words to the songs in The Sound of Music.
- I have no idea which country has an area of 95,000 square miles, is a kingdom and has a population of 5 million.
- And I really don't have a clue who the inventor of the hovercraft is.

I like to think that by lacking the necessary skill in this area, I must surpass in another.

I'll let you know when I find out what that is.
