Click send when you've answered all the questions. I reckon you'll want to read the questions and then do a bit of research before entering your answers, so you can click here to go back to the front page of the site. Good luck! RealMart.)

This nice young lady has nothing whatsoever to do with the quiz, but we wanted to use the photo

The Prize!

The prize will only be awarded to someone who gets absolutely every question right. If no one gets them all right then we'll give the prize to ourselves instead. While the prize winner will be picked absolutely at random from all the correct entries, you stand a better chance of being picked at random if your answers are not only correct but also clever and maybe a bit funny, too. (Hey; we've got to read them all so you could make it enjoyable for us!).

Closing date is when you've all stopped sending entries and someone reminds us to do the draw.

Are you ready to hear what the prize is? Sure you can stand the excitement? Sitting down? Actually, the prize is pretty good so I don't know why we're being sarky about it. The prize this time is a genuine Roy Barrett artwork, Dream Vincent, signed by the artist, number 378/500. It'll look a lot better on your wall than scudding around The Shed, so get your entries in quick...

This 500 pixel image just doesn't do justice to the original
