Remember, folks, it's just for fun!

(PS: Remember too, a "nice jumper" is a woolly top, and a pasty is indeed something you eat)

So great quiz!

I should live in Newcastle.
Good news (I think?) is that DH should live there too.

In fact even when I changed my answers I still got Newcastle. Why aye man.

'What's a cumberbatch ?'

That's a trick question meant to rule out anyone who should not live in the UK ;-)

I got Belfast, even though I've never been to Northern Ireland.

Fair enough.
I tried three times, got Newcastle, then Leeds and then Liverpool. Haven't been to any.

I did live in London for two years, clearly shouldn't have.

Was hoping for London, wouldn't have been disappointed with the Home Counties but I ended up in Belfast! Should I start packing??

Three more tries, and I still get Liverpool. Aaaargh !

Reckon it's the pet question, I can't do anything other than dog.

Next buzzfeed - what kind of dog are you ? Can't wait....

Lucky you Jamikins, how did you get London ?

Thx PatrickLondon, a bit of fun.

Got me to within 15 miles of where I was born - and I have never been so insulted in my life

I still maintain that Döner kebap is the best hangover food ever invented.

That's the key! I love chips, cheese and gravy (poutine as we call it in Canada)! Where is the option for curry in that question??!!

Can't be the pet because it's only dogs for me too!

Sparkchaser - doner kebab while still drunk at 3.00 am.
Hash browns for hangover in the morning...

I got Belfast(?) - never been there in my life (being a southerner happily settled in North Yorkshire).
Loved Poutine when I tried it in Toronto!

I've only been to Newcastle on the ferry from Ijmuiden, and then only to get out of it asap and on my way to somewhere else.
Now Northumbria - Yes, but for the weather, but Newcastle?

I put dog too. I've never been drunk so that question was tricky for me, and I think it is the food you eat after getting a skin full, and before going home to sleep it all off, not the food you eat the next day to get over last nights skin full.

I just did it again with a random set of answers 9except dog, that is non negotiable) and I got Edinburgh. Not sure I like that any more than Newcastle tbh.

You're right Heti the question was drunk food not hangover food.
I shouldn't be doing this, I live in Australia.

At least we're all agreed on dogs !
