Series L - QI VG: Compilation Show 11
- A mixture of new material and best bits from Series L.
- Best Bit: L-Animals - The sound made by the loneliest whale in the world.
- Best Bit: Little and Large - The best use for a whale at a party.
- Best Bit: Lumped Together - The world's largest love handles.
- New Material: Levity Tangent - Frank Skinner was at a cricket match and was talking a large woman who was married to a leading cricket executive. Some cream tea was served and Frank said to the woman, as she was married to an executive that: "I bet you've had a few cream teas in your time." He then wanted to make clear that this was not a reference to her weight, but then thought against it and soon left the woman.
- Best Bit: Lenses - Trying to rotate your right foot clockwise while writing a 6 in the air with your right hand.

- Best Bit: Ladies and Gents Tangent - Ross Noble believing he had a STD when in fact his pants were too tight.
- Best Bit: Lethal - Lethal uses for a laptop and Stephen working with Kiefer Sutherland.
- New Material: L-Animals - Ladybirds can get their spots from sexually transmitted diseases. Ladybirds are highly sexed, and the males do not really mind what they have sex with. Male ladybirds are known to have sex with other males and with dead females. In a 9 hour long mating session the male's orgasm can be 30 minutes long. These mating sessions result in STDs which mean they can get lice and spots, other than the ones on their wings. There appears to be no specific term for a male ladybird. Ross Noble asks if there are male ladybirds which like homosexual sex, or as Sarah Millican calls them, "gaydbirds".
- Best Bit: Literature - Edward Lear's terrible limericks.
- Best Bit: No-L - Jimmy Carr and chain siphoning.
- Best Bit: Lovely - Aphrodisiac food and drink.
- Best Bit: Lying Tangent - The Gotta Go Briefcase.
- Best Bit: Lumped Together - The lava lamp lab lark.

If you've missed any of this series, you can catch up in one go with this compilation. Of course, those who are offended by the show's occasionally lavatorial humour should leave the room during the gags about briefcase toilets, the genitals of the beluga whale, the sex lives of ladybirds and so on.
Granted it's not been the wittiest series of QI. So for me the best bits (they're included here and still made me laugh) were the panellists' riotous attempts to rotate their right foot clockwise while drawing the figure six in the air and Stephen Fry's messy science lesson about how to make a lava lamp using effervescent hangover tablets.Jane Rackham, Radio Times, 30th January 2015
