board that he should enter into the English Mastermind Championships. He did, and won a place. On they evening of the competition, Seamus enters from the crowd and places himself on the Leather Seat and
makes himself comfortable. The lights dim and a spot light points at his face.

'Very well,' says Magnus, 'Your
first Question: in what year did the 'Easter Rising take Place?' Seamus responds, 'Pass.'
