Re: Continuous Quiz: Tenpin Bowling

Congrats Benny I have good news and bad news for you; Number 8 is indeed Buster and he is the o-o-o but not for the reason you state. Believe it or not Plug had his own comic as well, a spin off in the 1980s. Anyway that's six pins down, but we still have 4 to go + the now obvious connection and the...

Yes Andy and there is an exact replica of that statue of the two Wildes in Galway donated by Estonia in 2005. I have now seen both statues close up! I hand the baton on with hearty congrats...

Re: Continuous Quiz: Tenpin Bowling

Well done Blue 2 is indeed Sting and 6 is Little Mo so another two pins are down. Benny 8 is not Get Carter which Dysart tried on a previous post.

Re: Continuous Quiz: High Brow

Time for a clue so: The writer who propounded this theory was Irish although his surname is spelled the same (but pronounced quite differently) as a prominent Estonian poet.

Re: Continuous Quiz: Tenpin Bowling

Sorry Andy Pistol Pete is not what I have in mind and does not fit the connection. I think he might have been an American creation of Walt Disney's. The connection and o-o-o are rather more British than that. The winner might have a beano all right but he might have to be a bit of a topper as well!

Re: Continuous Quiz: Tenpin Bowling

Yes Pete Number 4 would be Ball Boy, a fellow you might find in Football, Tennis and Baseball. Methinks you may have rumbled the connection or are very close to it! 1 Leading character in Nursery Rhyme 2 Performer on original Band Aid single 3 Book of the Bible 4 Young male who features in several s...
