The rest of you are in my thoughts… just not on the leader board.
Christophe Plays POP! ‘rules’ are here.
I was this close to submitting answers. But I got stumped as to whether answers including “BROTHers” would have counted? Jungle, Isley, Righteous, Chemical etc. would all have become available
Ah, sorry, Mr, Devon… There were further clarifications in the comments box, including this: ‘… crowbarring food in where there is none is NOT acceptable, by which I mean this kind of thing: MartHA McHenry.’ BROTHers is borderline, but I would have probably judged it a no-no.
Are you having a stab at the impenetrable Q4?
Alas it is too tricky for me to be hopeful of even a single point.
It’s really NOT that hard…!!!
