I know they still got it wrong tilly!

Some of the contestants on that show are a bit bat's. 

Yes this contestant may feel daft now.

Has there ever been a question on the Chase that you didn't know the answer to? If so what was it? We might find it funny 


I thought it was only the wool of bat that went into the cauldron.

Let us know when you are due to appear on there TTT.

10:36, yes lots, I only highlight the ones where the answer is obvious and usually given in the question yet they get it wrong. Surely you have spotted that by now?


Sorry i keep forgetting mr mensa works for a usa bank, so uses american words, eg caldron, so hes not completely incorrect!

people spot typos when their brain is otherwise exhausted.

A CAULDRON OF BATS! A group of bats is sometimes called a cauldron. Bat groups are also called a colony when in a large cave or a cloud when a large group is in flight.

sorry couldnt find a definition for caldron.

well you live and learn! 

“Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.”

― William Shakespeare


That's how Shakespeare spelled "cauldron"

Shakespeare's spelling was famously dodgy - he even spelled his own surname differently from time to time

like I said when the brain is exhausted the exhausted brains revert to typos.

The spelling of 'caldron' (as per TTT's) in Maggiebee's example led me to investigate further ..... and this is what I found .... 


//The preferred Canadian spelling is cauldron, while caldron is favoured in the United States.//


Just an interesting little snippet. 

...and TTT doesn't understand what a "typo" is. He always calls his krap speelin a "typo".

TORATORATORA - maybe some of the many answers you didn't know might have been obvious to others and could lead to ' they walk amongst us' threads about your answers / non answers.

Some of your threads are funny but it is good to be humble sometimes.
