    104 is golden

  11. Four of the winners are missing including mine :( Boooooo! Hehe. Wasn’t a funny one, mind you. Just Button making it to the top of that mountain using sheer brawn.

    1. @ninjenius Apologies, have added your Button one back in.

  12. 104… because rude boy Jacques is turned into an old grandpa

  13. 100, 102 but 113 is my favourite. Bernie does have a sense of the Emperor about him.
