The return of Super Spot the Difference
La Liga Loca canÃ¢ÂÂt honestly remember what film it was in now (although itÃ¢ÂÂs got a funny feeling it was Speed, conjuring up once again images of Sandra BullockÃ¢ÂÂs smooth, dark leg pumping away at that accelerator, grrr!)
But for some reason the phrase Ã¢ÂÂPop Quiz, motherfu**er!Ã¢ÂÂ just keeps going round and round our heads.

... itÃ¢ÂÂs time for another quiz to get you chewing your pencil and scratching your heads like a bunch of nit-infested infants.
