From today's Guardian.

Shamefully I only managed 5/10. My excuse is that my choices were not completely off the wall! Number 9 I really should have got right though, since I use it myself in a slightly different form :oops:

Thanks for that, cestins - I only got six, and should have done better, if only because of my interest in idioms. Ah well...

I got 6, that was really interesting! Some of them are fairly guessable, but some are - well, I guess how my students feel about some of ours :D

I got 8, but the non-silly options for the last 2 were less easy to work out than the first 8.
