It’s Sunday, week 8 of Lockdown 3! As usual, no Fagan’s theme quiz!
This week, we’ve been calculating how many people we can get drunk with at each stage as we emerge from lockdown!
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.

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