While I’m enjoying the current daily instalments of University Challenge, I’ll be glad when they go back to the standard shows.
It’s not as fun to mock the ex-students; they’re just too well-established. I’ve nothing bad to say about Samira Ahmed or Wilko Johnson, for example, and I sure as hell can’t play ‘Spot the Murderer’ with them, or ‘Sniff Out the Most Socially Inept’. The last few episodes have been so alarmingly twat-free, I’ve almost abandoned my usual piss-taking and actually listened to the questions.
See below for tonight’s Twitter banter: normal service will be resumed when they bring the knobheads back.
