Wow...

A quick look at the questions and I`m fairly confident that I know the answers to four - including the Sport one Bouncy...

some are going to need some thinking about...

and two are absolute stinkers [I won`t spoil it by saying which]...

 

Brilliant questions this time and thank you for putting this together @Cleoriff 

 

Good luck, everyone. I think we`re going to need it Thinking
