On a question on 8 letter rugby teams, one team contemplated going with Eeeeeels.

We had to remind one team that saying something mixed in with a dozen other answers doesn’t get points. You’ve got to write it down.

The process by which someone becomes a saint is not crucifixion. (At least not necessarily.)

And we had a new record high score… of 92… sort of.

Their actual score was 80, but they benefited from a 12 point bonus from a previous week on account of a 12 point miscalculation. Don’t worry, their 80 would have won anyway.

See you next week.
