a just can’t get enough quiz

It’s Sunday, week 6 of Lockdown 3! As usual, no Fagan’s theme quiz!

This week, we requested refunds for our Chester Zoo tickets that were booked for next week because, like, that ain’t happening, innit!

It’s a quiz of 20 questions and one theme.

There’s a clue to the theme in the quiz title and a bonus point if you can guess the theme itself.

There may be “sound-a-likes” or embedded words.

The use of electronic devices to divine the answers, with the exception of hearing aids and pacemakers, is forbidden.
