Your quizzes have too much modern comedy crap in them Aaron, sorry but it's not on. I got the first four right and ended up with 5/10. Eh? Angy

It's akin to being a quizmaster for a pub quiz that attracts broad demographics of contestants. When setting the music round, do you include mostly just "grandpa" hits from the early 60s to the early 90s? Or do you focus on stuff that people under 30 will know? Or try for a mix of questions covering the 60s to the 2010s?

The solution is simple. You old farts should throw away all your DVDs of "classic" shows. Don't waste time trying to rediscover pleasures of yore that were never that great in the first place. Live in the now, embrace the new, excel at these quizzes.

I also got 5/10.

How sad. Classic comedy will never die. One wonders if anyone will remember Mrs Brown's Boys in 50 years time as is the case now with say Hancock's Half Hour.

I do, but not in this case as it was a pure fluke, besides which I get sick and tired of people airing their axe grinding views (and this goes for some modern day "comedians" too) and then claim it is irony or they are being ironic.

I don't get this, Herc. Surely every sarcastic view is irony? They're synonymous.
