A tricky fox - away from his skulk, presumably.Here are the answers to the questions posted yesterday in Yeoutch!

It wasn’t all doom and gloom at Tuesday night’s quiz.  I’ve previously mentioned Aiden’s amazing ability to pluck seemingly impossible answers from his memory.  This week he didn’t disappoint.

  • What’s the collective noun for foxes? “I’m pretty sure it’s a skulk.” It is.
  • “Goat Island divides what?” This bizarrly phrased question had us thinking for several minutes.  It had to be a body of water but which one? At the end I took a desperate stab at Niagara Falls. “You’re right – there is a Goat Island there alright.”
  • He also correctly named all the Greek vowels. Alas he can’t count (and neither could the rest of us) as we put down six as our answer.
