QI – Which are true? Orange or Green?2nd March 2015
At the last event – we had food on the brain.
At all of our QI conversation style events each table gets a set of cards in a nice little thinking bob box. Each card has two statements one true, one false – your job is to figure out which colour has been cunningly made up by team bob to steer you away from the truth.
Try yourself! Which are true?
The Orange Statements:

- Lignumaphobia is the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth.

- In Iceland penguin heart is a delicacy.
- In China it is important to eat all the food on your plate to be seen as polite.
