Scavenger Hunt London Underground Quiz

Win the Limited Edition Anagram Tube Map Mug

This Friday's competition sees the very special prize of the "banned"
London Underground Anagram Tube Map Mug kindly donated by regular contributor Fimb.

London Underground Anagram Map Mug

Fimb had the foresight to buy this mug before Transport for London got in touch with Cafe Press to get it pulled. So it is a very, very, limited edition. Hopefully someone from the Tube or their lawyers will win it, so they can smash it smithereens!

Not only has Fimb donated the prize but she's also created the quiz & it's a goodie. As you know if you search hard enough (or rather with hardly any effort) you can still find the "banned" Tube maps - so we want you to search the net and find the following items:

1) A Tube train you can eat

2) A Tube map you can wear (official or unofficial)

3) A Tube related tattoo

4) A pre 20th Century picture of the London Underground

5) A picture of someone famous travelling on the Tube

6) The lyrics to a song that contain the FULL name of a station on the London Underground. It mustn't be something that was written specifically as a spoof like the "Going Underground London Underground Song" or any of Anthony's songs, or any of the songs featured on this site.

As my haloscan commenting system only lets you put three links in each comment, you will have to make two comments if you want to enter.

There is a bonus point if your answer to 1-5 is different from the person who guessed immediately before you.

Plus each answer to number 6 MUST be different - so you can't make the same guess as someone else. There are tons of songs that feature station names so you shouldn't be hard pressed to find them.

You have until 23.59 GMT Sunday 9th April to make your guesses and please leave either your email address and/or blog or website in the comments when you make your two posts. As usual Neil's paperclip selection will come into play in the event of several people getting the same high point score.

Have fun and thanks again to Fimb for donating the prize and devising the quiz!

UPDATE - me and Fimb are loving the answers we've had so far. So much so, that we are going to give some runner up prizes (fridge magnet calendars, badges and whatever else I can find in my goody bag) for originality. So if you manage to find different pictures to 1-5 eg celebs on the Tube other than Ken Livingstone, a different answer to the Tube train you can eat, a good Tube related tattoo etc, you could be up for a runner up prize.

PS - don't forget the Tube Seat Upholstery Pencil Case Quiz closes on the 2nd April 23.59 GMT. At the time of writing no one has all 5 answers correct, so there's still a chance someone could sneak in and win it - otherwise it will be judged on points!
