@Loveandgarbage has launched his annual “What did I get for Christmas” Quiz.
He’s tweeted a barcode for a hint:
Throughout the day(s) we’ll be updating this blog on progress. – The original quiz was solved by @ChrisBrookes. It was “The Happiest days of your life”.
Now there’s a game of charades.
1650: Just when I thought it was safe – we’ve got a game of on-line charades on the go. All that’s known is:
1224: Since we’re (kinda) live-blogging the quiz, I’m marching on until it’s over or ended. If you’re still wanting to take a guess, @nuttyxander offers you some help on how to ‘read’ barcodes:
1215: WE HAVE A WINNER. “The Happiest Days of Your Life” – which you can get a bit more info on here. But that’s not over. Tradition dictates that the quiz goes on until people stop guessing…we may still be here for a few hours.
1213: Very long “ooooh” here. Bells of St. Trinians could be significant…maybe? Then again…maybe not.
1159: Joyce Grenfell features (but to what extent is unknown).
1154: people are STILL moaning about the barcode. The barcode’s a run-of-the-mill, bog standard bar code. Deal with it.
1153: No-one has yet mentioned “The Rutles and All you need is Cash“. More on this situation as it develops.
1146: In a BIG CLUE: The DVD was released in 2009.
1144: It’s not a biopic.
1137: It’s also not glee.
1136: Well, prunes aren’t a feature of the DVD, and he doesn’t think it’s based on a work of literature. If he’s wrong about that though, we may have grounds for appeal.
1132: Hello everyone. It’s just shy of 12,so it’s time to restart the “@loveandgarbage “What Did I Get for Christmas” Christmas Quiz 2014″. Guesses have been rolling in from about 9am this morning so lets see what went on.
Day 2 – 26th December 2014
End of Day 1
2239: But remember, it keeps going until it’s guessed…and possibly a little longer.
2234: It’s closing in, but not looking likely to be solved tonight, but a reminder that it is doable!
2216: It’s not Spanish. This much is known.
2213: I’m back after my Christmas Dinner and post-Dinner Scrabble Game (I won). Let’s see where we are.
1643: For avoidance of doubt, its a EAN-13 Barcode…because some people were confused by a picture of a barcode.
1639: Someone tried to get clever though “duality of textual suggestion”.
1423: I’m post soup now, and still no good guesses.
