They Didn’t Suit You

Happy 35th birthday to 2fm, Ireland’s pop music radio station. There since the station’s launch and still going strong is disc jockey and national treasure, Larry Gogan. And the highlight of Larry’s Golden Hour is his signature Just a Minute Quiz—reputedly the longest running quiz on radio. 😎

They didn’t suit you,” are Larry’s words of consolation to contestants who don’t answer any questions correctly. 😦

The link above is to a web page on tablequiz.net listing 33 alleged “actual answers given to Larry Gogan” taken from a chain email that has been in circulation for many years. But Larry himself explains in this interview that it’s all an urban legend. Maybe so, but no less funny for that. 😉

PS: I unearthed a few more alleged JAMQ answers in this Irishisms thread on a Usenet newsgroup.
