I'm having a Mr Grumpy moment (according to 'er indoors).
Just watched a Tipping point show.

Question; how many kings of England have used the reginal name Edward?

Answer; I dont think Edward the eighth was crowned, so i'm going to say eight.

Result? CORRECT.

WTF?

If edward the eighth was not crowned then he was NOT a king, so the answer should be seven.

Yes?

You're still the monarch (as he was when his father died). The coronation is just to put the bling on.

Male? oh yes, the term wasp is not unfamiliar to me, and no, I have never had a feminine side ('er indoors is right about that as well).

Teroo... to be fair, the question did define edwards since 1200 and something

it was a dark and rainy night, I was sat at my desk with my feet up searching for my soul in the bottom of a glass, the door to my office was opened by a dame, she had legs that went all the way up and her face was dark beneath the brim of a rain hat......................................

Very true, but he was referring specifically to Edward VIII
