Mastermind Wiki Challenge - Heat 2

This is just by way of a quick heads up about next week’s specialist subjects in case anybody fancies taking the wiki challenge on Friday. The subjects as listed on the Mastermind website are : -

Billie Holiday
Eddie Merckx
Ludwig Wittgenstein
William Gladstone

Well, no chances of a no study 13 for me with those – in fact no chance of even a no study 7 either. Of all four I think I’d maybe do best on Gladstone. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of the Tour de France, but wouldn’t fancy my chances on a set purely on The Cannibal ( and you never know – his nickname may be one of the gimme questions ). I think Billie Holiday was a wonderful singer, but again that doesn’t mean I could tell you much about her other than her birth name ( again, maybe that will be one of the questions. )As for Ludwig Wittgenstein, since I don’t think that they are likely to require the answer that Monty Python called him ‘a beery swine who was just as sloshed as Schlegel‘ I can’t see that I’m going to get much joy from him.

Best of luck if you do decide to take the challenge.
