Only those who have an IQ of 135 or more will read this update

I've made a quiz!

I see lots of quizzes on social media with titles like, "1 million people tried but so far only 1 person was able to score a perfect 10" and "Only those who have an IQ of 135 or up will score a perfect 10" and they get shared around. A lot. I started thinking about how a quiz could be used to tell more people about Glarnies, Green Berets & Goons and here's what I came up with. All the questions are connected to the book and on the results page, there's a button that takes you to some recommended reading (guess what that is!) Give it a try. And please do share your results on social media... especially if you score a perfect 10!

How much do you know about classic British comedy?

And the winner is...

Thanks to all of you who entered the competition to win the programme from the 1952 Royal Variety Performance.

Q: What was the name of Tony Hancock's first wife?

A: Cicely Janet Elizabeth Romanis

I asked my postman to pick a winner and the name he drew from the hat was:

MIKE SIMMONDS

Congratulations Mike! I'll be in touch

No prize this time I'm afraid, Hunt. Just the satisfaction of proving that you're a genius!

Oh my word, I've won? Truly unbelievable!
Thank goodness, my plan worked. You didn't recognise me when I called at your house in that postman's uniform, did you? Ha ha! (sfx footsteps running away) :-)

What, what, what? The Stolen Postman? You rumbled me, Julie.

'Seagoon: I'll have to hand myself in. How do I get to the nearest police station?

Crun: By walking.

Seagoon: Isn't there a quicker way?

Crun: Running?

Seagoon: Thank you. Goodbye.

Grams: Boots running off at speed.'

Genius writing :-)
