No mention of the Morecambe and Wise "Chip expert" sketch, with the descrption of the "Liconshire bender" that is cleverly cut so that it dips itself in the vinegar whilst in the newspaper?

Well they all sound vaguely familiar but I only know the answer to no. 10
And, given the title of the quiz, maybe no. 40 (or is it a trick, and it was mustard and cress on a damp flannel)

I had a confusing conversation with my French penfriend about "fish and ships".

And are you a 'chip off the old block'?
