EngSoc discovered whether it was students or lecturers who “would get more splinters from scratching
their head” in their Weakest Link competition.
The event was in aid of Reading Matters, a Yorkshire based charity.
Lecturer Simon Swift was slower than his name suggested and was the first contestant voted off. Following a heated final round, Fiona Douglas won the competition. She beat student Hayley Reid by correctly answering “How many bones are there in the human body?”
Douglas won a Mr Men book as her prize. The host, Tom Pattison amused the audience with Anne Robinson
Second year, English student Rudi Abdallah told LS: “Tom’s lines delivered with acidic wit would have certainly made Anne Robinson quiver!”
Abdallah added: “There was a depressing lack of Strongbow and not enough hot wings or sausage rolls.”
