Last week's challenge
If we alter a classic poem under today’s rules, what group traveled one and a half leagues forward?
Answer: The 1,800

On-air questions: Any Questions? took an unplanned summer holiday and went missing for a couple of weeks. But, for better or for worse, we’re back, and we’ve brought a few missing things back with us. This week, we’re going to play another round of “What’s Missing?” I’ll give you the members of a certain group, but I’m going to leave one out. You tell me what the missing member is that completes the group. For example, if I said “candlestick, revolver, lead pipe, wrench, knife”, you would say “rope” because that’s the missing weapon from the board game Clue.
