|As this is crosswords and other puzzles, here's one from ITVPlay, currently subject to inevstigation by Ofcom:|
A graphic asked viewers to "Add the pence" from "Two pounds, 25p, £1.47, 16p, Fifty pence".
More than three hours later, the host announced the answer was 506 and that no-one had won. No method was given. ITV has denied the problem was particularly complex but has not commented further.

|Nice. I can't come up with anything to follow that though.|

Fabulous Ming's hot coach of term: number one for two thousand and seven? (7, 6, 6)I'll take the stony silence as a request for hints, so here you go:
1) No specialist knowledge is required; anyone at the club (or not at the club) could solve this.
2) Unlike the clue, the answer has nothing to do with rowing.
3) If I'm honest, 'Fabulous' wasn't a great choice of word. It enhances the surface reading but is a bit dubious in the cryptic reading. Better would have been "Staggering Ming's...".

Olly Olly said: Oh that's just silly. Apologies to the 99% of people reading this who are confused.I did say it was not for everyone. In fact, I guess it was really just aimed at you (although clearly there are plenty of others who would be able to get it).
Having said that, I like the new chant (not that I can see a great deal of use for it here).
