"Eat a lump of cold poison"

More of a Four Yorkshiremen thing than Python, methinks.

I got 70% too,, but I was clicking Franklin for almost everyone and going so fast that I realized I got one wrong even as I clicked through it.

If poofer=drunkard, the skit would make a lot more sense. After all, admitting you're drunk means you can't hold your liquor.

Shut up Ken.  I got 90% and have no idea what Python skit the "eat a lump of cold poison" comes from.

As mentioned upthread, it's from "Four Yorkshiremen", a sketch that predates Python but which they often performed in their live show.

9/10. I got tripped up by the considering cap one, as it sounds like a line that could have come from the not very good final series of Python.

/sounds tinny

80%. Question #5 and #10 answered incorrectly.
