3.Money slang: What amount of money is known as a Pavarotti?



4.What colour do Germans use to describe themselves to say they are drunk: yellow, red or blue?



5.Ruby Murray is the rhyming slang for curry. But who was the original Ruby Murray? Was she a British pop singer, an American Film Star or an Irish prostitute?



6.What was a 'MOON MAN' in the olden days? A burglar who preferred to do his crimes by moonlight, someone who was partial to lots of cheese, or a bus driver.



7.If you're in Germany and you say that someone is moon-faced, is it a compliment or an insult?

First impressions are there's nothing to go on, but I'm

fairly certain now that it's the relationship of the food letters

and the number of people who eat it.

Best guess is it's the individual letters and their number order in the alphabet.

I have been on this ‘forever’ LOL Embarassed Laughing

I started on the premise that it was to do with number order of the letters
In the food, ie a =1, b =2 etc.
It was fairly obvious that it couldn’t be the full words added up as it wasn’t literally adding up.
Then I noticed ‘baked beans’ was 22, and the ‘b’s’ are number 2 in alphabet order.
So it’s the opening letters of each food that gives us the numbers.

So ‘expresso coffee’ would be 53.

I may be wrong of course.
