1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score,nor the leader until the contest ends?
Surely thats Boxing which has already been suggested. Tour De France? Crown Green bowls....one of them sports that isn't really a sport?

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters "dw" and they are all common words. Name two of them.
Dwarf
Dwarven



8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.
Never seen bananananananas other than fresh. Or grapes (wine doesn't count)

banananananas are pureed and bottled for baby food a lot :shock:

I was thinking of cucumbers actually but that may be out of context in here (in another pooh-related thread :oops: ) :twisted:

Erm... no. The Horseshue, the big and famous bit is rather Canadian. American is a smaller side-waterfall which is very well explained when you take one of them boats for very wet tourists indeed :)
