Nice try. But the person shouting "Order! Order!" Is a friend of Brussels so he'll be fine despite the chaos he has encouraged.

BTW is Belgium on that map? I am told I've been a few times but I don't recall. It doesn't have any personality to remember.

"Saint Mirren" is an oxymoron.

Not quite. 'Mirren' is not evil.

Examples of word play include puns, phonetic mix-ups such as spoonerisms, obscure words and meanings, clever rhetorical excursions, oddly formed sentences, double entendres, and telling character names (such as in the play The Importance of Being Earnest, Ernest being a given name that sounds exactly like the adjective earnest).

OK then, which football team in England or Scotland has the best educated players?

I never said Helen Mirren is evil, but she's not a saint either.

And the notion of a European professional sports team being well educated is awkward. While big money US college sports is rife with abuse, most American professional athletes actually do have a university degree, whereas finding a European pro football player with a degree is like finding a very unusual straw in a hay stack. So, I have no idea.

I was going to make some snide comment, and then realized that I have actually only heard of about approximately four Scottish football teams, so may not be all that qualified to address the details. But I did read somewhere that they were unique, as in the only British professional sports team with academic roots. Or something to that effect.
