Morning @Cleoriff 

As I said, there is no QI-style question this time but I admit Q3 is not one of the easiest questions...

Good luck.

I look forward to pm with your eight answers any time after 12 noon today.

Thanks @pgn for your post

 

btw my mistake

Q3 should have read:

      In which Shakespeare play does the word "rhinoceros" appear ?

NOT "rhinosaurus" D'oh!
