LAST WEEK'S TEASER QUESTION
Supplied by Derek Sharp.
In what order, from left to right, should you put the following: the companion of Tinkerbell, the man who played Malcolm Little, the progenitor of the Yeehat, and a horse-drawn carriage?
The answer is that they are all capital cities. PARIS Hilton's dog is named Tinkerbell; Denzel WASHINGTON portrayed Malcolm X in the 1992 bio-pic; novelist Jack LONDON's books contained the fictional Alaskan tribe the Yeehat; and a BERLIN carriage was a light four-wheeled carriage popular in the 18th century.
From left to right - or from east to west - the order is therefore Washington, London, Paris, Berlin.
