Don't ask me!

Tell us your funniest story from a drunken night out...

I can't remember it, but it was definitely funny (then, less so now).

If you could be one historical figure who would you be and why?

Probably Ghandi, because of all the dinner parties with other dead historical figures.

David Bowie, obviously.

To question 1, and change it to Spaghetti Bolognese.
