Yes! 26 points to orlok. Very impressive, or I made the questions too easy. You pick.

Over to you for the next quiz

OK, here's a very silly one pinched from our Pointless friends - name the ten US states that are described by these wordplay clues:

1. Heavy laundry
2. Something's missing from my shed
3. Honour/Honor among theives
4. Horsehair
5. Nothing greeting nothing
6. Get prisoners to their cells quickly
7. I can't understand why you can't be more merciful?
8. Switch off maniac's chainsaw
9. Boo! Your mandible is rubbish!
10. The bottom of a tin

Some a truly dreadful puns, apologies in advance

1. Heavy laundry - Washington (Washing ton) - doubleshuffle
2. Something's missing from my shed - Idaho (I'd a hoe) - pdurrant
3. Honour/Honor among thieves - Connecticut (Con etiquette) - poohbear
4. Horsehair - Maine (Mane) - doubleshuffle
5. Nothing greeting nothing - Ohio (o Hi o) - doubleshuffle
6. Get prisoners to their cells quickly - Wisconsin (Whizz cons in) - poohbear
7. I can't understand why you can't be more merciful? - Wyoming (Why, oh Ming?) - Bilbo
