There is a team of three elegant young people who come to the Cellar Monkey every week and they use the same team name every week, they’re called Turkey For All.
Great name, but what does it mean?
I finally got round to asking them the other Thursday and I was surprised I hadn’t guessed that it’s a reference to this moment of genius from the early days of Family Fortunes:
Apparently the chap answering the questions second had overheard the answer “chicken” in the first round and reasoned that Turkey must be an answer if chicken had been an answer.
Decent play, decent strategy… but so badly executed.
He’s probably dead now.
