Well, Peter Sellers (!) did play James Bond in "Casino Royale" from 1967, a film not considered "canonical". In the same film Ursula Andress (better known as Honey Ryder) played both Vesper and 007.

But since Bilbo explicitly stated "official" I guess Sellers doesn't qualify - although since it's MGM that has the rights for this movie, why isn't it "official"? Is it because the part of 007 was played by so many in Casino Royale?

Numbers 2, 4 and 5 are correct - but Red beat you to 'tequila'

All correct. Orlok got the number right (which is all I asked for) but a bonus point for you.

You're right. I think David Niven also played 007 in that film as well, amongst others. Not sure why exactly it's not considered official.

So, the score on the doors are;

red_phoenix - 1
Orlok - 2
WT Sharpe - 1
Kumabjorn - 1 (bonus)

Just the answer to number one left to get.

That is the answer that was given as correct by the quizmaster last night, but not what is actually correct I believe.

Nelson's Blood might be another name for rum, but I think he was preserved in a brandy barrel.

Yes - that's correct.

There is a persistent myth that he was preserved in rum, but that seems to have come about because of rum's association with the British navy and the fact that it was often used as a preservative. In reality, he was placed in a cask filled with brandy.

I didn't bother to try to correct the quizmaster, as that just comes across as churlish. but I checked today and it seems my recollection was correct.

That point for Paul leaves Orlok the winner on two points. Take it away, Orlok (or Issybird).

Some more pub quiz style questions:

1. A 'smack' is the collective noun for a group of which marine creatures?

2. 'P' is the chemical symbol for which element?

3. Which organ of the human body is affected by Hepatitis?

4. How many muscles are there in a human finger?

5. What is the third largest planet in the Solar System?

6. Where in the human body would you find the thinnest skin?

7. A 'troubling' is the collective noun for a group of which household pets?

8. Which part of the male does a female mantis usually bite off during mating?

I am about to take the family and assorted in-laws out to dinner, so won't be able to respond to answers until later.
