  • Mock The Week

    Welcome to Mock The Week, I'm totally not Dara 'Briain.

    Since I know there are at least a handful on here who watch, or are at least aware of, MTW, let's see how a forum-based version works out

    Standard forum rules apply, so nothing that would have made it onto a Too Hot For TV DVD please

    Our first round is called 'If this is the answer, what is the question?'. I will give an answer and the idea is to guess what the question being asked could be. So come back at me with some improvised comedy

    The answer is: 3 million.

                I'm confused, are you applying aforementioned volts on a weekly basis (the right answer) or are they forgetting their passwords on a weekly bases (the dumb answer)?

                          The question I was looking for was: how mant service outages did Google have last year. At the end of that round the points go to Wesley and Daniel *.

                          The next answer is: 12%





                          * as with the real MTW, there are no points and no winners, Dara just does it to confuse the studio audience
