I would`ve fallen that, too. Whilst researching the questions at the weekend I came across this "fact" in Guiness Book Of Answers and, after doing further research in other reference books I have, found that for once Guiness were actually right.

I thought the QI question was the wedding anniversary one. Simply because we have adopted a few American ones. Their 6th is Iron and to be honest with all the fuss about sugar recently, I thought we might have dropped that one!

Good point @Cleoriff . We`ve also kept ivory in our list, which I refuse to include in any quiz...
