On a slightly silly note...
Michael & I came up with a new term last night...
When answering multiple choice questions, it's frequently the case that there is at least one answer that it just could not be. I commented on this and came up with the following example:
Question: What colour is the sky?
This lead to the coining of the term 'the Parrot', meaning the option/answer that it just cannot be because it makes no sense at all.
A more 'real life' example might be a TV phone-in with the question: "For the Benefit of... who?" was a song by the Beatles? A: Mr Kite, B: Mr Jones, C: Mr Blobby. (In case you missed it, C is the Parrot!).
