Some great entries so far, especially with the joke punchlines - some of them are different to the ones that I had but were so good that they are getting points as well!
Still time to enter witches and warlocks, so put down those pumpkins and start guessing!

Don't forget that this quiz stays open until the witching hour so there's still time for you all to enter when you get back from trick or treating!
