After a number of years on-off in Dubai, the mighty Yoda is leaving, (so named because he's old, wisened and wise, and has odd sticky-out ears). In his honour, there was a reunion of the Meeja Whores, the "legendary" quiz team from years ago, determined to see one of its founder members off in style.

The Meeja Whores were always a motley crew, yet somehow managed to hold the Aussie Legends record for about two years.

- Yoda was the resident expert on geography, as well as central American capitals and north American rivers;
- Dodja sipped Corona, wrinkled his brow and answered the occasional question about Mormons (he kissed one once) and planets;
- Frosty, now back in the UK, knew about entertainment;
- Lairy Clairey, also back in the UK, just drank Smirnoff Ice and got the odd 60s tune right;
- DJ Dan only ever answered one question in his life and we ignored him - it was something about Joe Montana;
- and finally moi, who only knows about James Bond films, with a speciality on Bond themes.

So, for one night only, we were back and came home the victors with five points to spare.

However, there was a hairy moment when the quizmaster, Aussie's own Disco Dave, dared to argue over which character had been in the most Bond films. While he claims it was Moneypenny, we all know it was in fact Q. With that, I can put the record straight now and claim a moral victory, as well as real one.
