The Daily Teaser — 27-10-2014

Oh, but I hate earworms, sometime, I really do … !

An earworm, so you know, is a tune — or one of the catchier parts of it, like the chorus — that starts working its way around you head.

Personally … ?

I usually get one playing around my brain, when I get up.

Which is not a good time to have a Bombalurina tune going around you head.


But let’s get moving on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser was another quiet one: with no-one putting in their answers.

Let’s if we can persuade you to try today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How ToLicense and video …
