    Gonna be knit picky here but this isn't correct. I used to watch Countdown when I lived in the UK over 12 years ago, and there is no 'computer'. As you can see, there are 2 stacks, 1 stack of vowels and 1 stack of consonants. One of the players tells the woman (Carol Vorderman) to either pick a vowel or consonant and she takes one from the stack and places it in the top row, and this is repeatedly done until the top row is filled up.

    Just felt like clarifying that... there is no computer.

    its also an urban legend that this ever happened.
    Nuclear weapons: A firm public commitment to build the £100bn renewal of the Trident weapons system, followed by an equally firm private commitment not to build it. They’re secret submarines, no one will ever know. It’s a win win.

    The closest one I seem to remember seeing was "Hag" followed by "Hags" and then it fell apart. I'm not an avid watcher but our Queen is, she'll know,

    These aren't the spoilers you're looking for.

    I'd say it could be fake. The...stream doesn't look like it bursts from the right area. Maybe a hose under the dog to make it look like it shits on the woman ?

    Thankfully, it's a fake.But with what she writes, it's probably not that far from something she could write.
    Anyways, back to the show!

    They ask me why I'm bringin' - A baby into battle - That's really irresponsible - And getting them rattled
    I say "give me a break - Get off of my back damn, it" - I didn't learn parenting - My daddy was a planet
