    Funny that I remembered the 'Iced Vovo' question. It has always stuck in my mind, after reading about it, years ago. May have been in an old RACQ chronicle?

    Watching the Chase, I misheard the question "Where was Charles the first, executed?" My immediate thought was, how many times was he executed!
