It's a bit weird that all best before dates on crisps are on a Saturday, if it's actually true. You wouldn't expect it to be a law, and the only other way to know would be to check every packet of crisps ever. I've just Googled it, and most sites seem to quote Walkers, so I'm not sure it's proven for all crisps.

And the thing about not being able to jog faster than 6 mph - that's just some arbitrary thing that someone made up, not an objective fact.

I got VACCINE as well. Surprised that DC didn't get it, given its topicality.

REVOLUTE - "botanical term for a leaf that is curled". Does that sound like a definition of a noun to you, thereby causing puzzlement that the leftover S wasn't commented on? (Not to mention the subtitling error.)

But it's actually an adjective. Sometimes the wordings of definitions given on the programme could use some work....
