Points for answers:
I found three sources for the quote but Deborah’s, Rob’s and Grant’s answers seem more likely so I’m allowing them.
Deborah got four and a bonus for wit.
Andrei got 1 1/2.
Rob got 2 1/2 with a bonus for humour.
IHS got one.
Grant got four and a bonus for lateral thinking.
Deborah and Grant both get an electronic carrot cake – with cream cheese icing.
Am tpying this at 7:50, if you answered after that you’ll have to award your own points.
