On the 'MP says bootnecks are not thick' thread, Naval Gazer suggested that bootnecks could one day appear on Mastermind. I like the idea so much I ve started this thread. All you have to do is come up with a candidate and four or five questions. (I bet some bugger has already done this :threaten: ). Here is my contribution: Mastermind John Humphries (JH): Your name, please? NZB: NZ Bootneck JH: And your specialist subject? NZB: The Fighting Librarians of 45 Commando Royal Marines. JH: NZ Bootneck you have chosen 'The Fighting Librarians of 45 Commando Royal Marines' ... Your time starts now. In the Falklands, how many librarians assaulted 'Two Sisters' armed only with an SLR and the complete volumes of the Encyclopaedia Brittanica? NZB: One JH: Correct. How did the Fighting Librarian's encode the location of Argentine positions when sending SITREPS? NZB: They used the Dewey Decimal Classification System in which the ten main classes 00 - 900 were assigned to geographical features such as 'Granite', 'More Granite' and 'Big feck off slabs of Granite'. JH: Correct. On the yomp across the Falklands, how did the Fighting Librarians shelter from the elements? NZB: By building low sangars from Scouting for Boys by Robert Baden-Powell. JH: Correct. What would a Royal Marine find under Dewey Number: 636.93233? NZB: A training pamphlet: The General Purpose Machine Gun in the Sustained Fire Role. JH: Incorrect.

I've started so I'll finish ... Which rifle company was named after a film regularly borrowed from the Fighting Librarian's DVD collection? NZB: mmmm .... Yankee Sluts? JH: No, I'm sorry it was Zulu . You had no passes and two incorrect answer. Under the Dewey Number: 636.93233 a Royal Marine would find Nigel Taylor's My Pet Hamster. NZ Bootneck, you have scored 4 points! Edited after complaints from viewers concerning Mr Humphries' basic numeracy skills.
