That's Sir to you...
I haven't been able to say anything until now but I was lucky enough to be rewarded in the New Year's Honours List. I am now KGOQSC (Knight Grand Order Queen's Shower Curtain). This little-known but relatively modern order dates back to Ramsay MacDonald's first audience with George V in 1923 when the first Labour Prime Minister inadvertently took a wrong turn into a public washroom believing it to be an ante-room to the royal apartments. Having been insufficiently briefed on the correct protocol, the premier waited for 15 minutes believing His Majesty to be the other side of a drawn gilded curtain. The word "Golden" was removed from the honour in 1983 after the Duke of Edinburgh made an inappropriate comment during an award ceremony in 1982. It is awarded in recognition of a lifetime spent waiting for something to happen without complaint. I shall bear the honour with pride.
I was given a fiendishly difficult puzzle by my sister. On the side of the box is the following legend:
Work it out.
Nobody worked it out. How can there be any incorrect solutions, let alone 250,000 (or even 250.000). Surely any solution to a puzzle is, by definition, correct.
