"Hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian" is not in the OED. I have a login to OED Online and I've just checked.

I will get a joint win if this is correct as JTG's score will be 6 on that question not one!

this would also be a perfect score (not one!)

Winner of Gumbleweeds V, VI + XI, Nimbleweeds I, III - IX + XIV and (joint with GuyBarry) winner of Timesnap

And most importantly, Former leader of Tumbleweed, and first person to 250,000

Tied between me and A Challenge. I think it goes to a penalty shoot-out now.

Yup - once only, for the 1997 Christmas special.

I don't know if you've ever seen that episode but it was absolutely hilarious, especially Susie trying to check the numbers (for which she was completely unqualified of course). William G. Stewart admitted that he'd only ever seen the programme once! Shame that it's been taken down from YouTube.

A good Rare Entries answer don't you think?
