Well, there's a wide spread of questions this time... Some come to mind, others are in there somewhere, just need to eke the answers out. Love Gingy's gif from Shrek, and Lord Farquad's song is rumbling around in my head, but is the answer the correct one...? 😆

Thank you @O2EmmaLouise 

Pleased you like the questions in today`s WRQ.

 

Thank you @pgn 

Tried to give a good mix of questions with the subjects this time. The "Odd Question" editionas are always fun to put together in finding some odd questions.

 

@TheresaV 

Shame I couldn`t let the question be @LukasB address - or you would be the only one to get it right tongue_winking
