It means you've gone bonkers. Wait! Wait! It could be Roy ROGERS! And the fourth letter of Great Britain is "a"!
Roger's a....what are you trying to tell me?

Once you get the answer, you know you are right.

It has nothing to do with you.

Roy Great Britain the Fourth

Roger's *u*k*** just missed out on the medals (Only came 4th in the golf tournament)

Let me explain: Roy = "Rogers". Great Britain = "UK". Fourth = "Just missed out on the medals".

Next puzzle please!

Hmm - but where does the word "the" come into it?

I prefer questions like what is the only team in the football league that you can't colour in.

"The rainbow"

I've surprised myself there... whenever I see roy I always immediately think of richard of york; that reminds me of rainbow..."Rainbow" starred Geoffrey, Bungle, Zippy, George and the singers - never to be forgotten...

And, if you can't colour in a football team, that means they're in black and white... hmmm

All white, I seem to remember. That's the only resemblance between them and Real Madrid.

No, it's not "Ayr" because you can colour in the hole in the "A". The team's name is in upper and lower case by the way (so it isn't CELTIC"!)

It's in the English league.

Correct. OK here's another.

Add one of these symbols: + - / x

to the following so that it makes sense: l0 l0 l0 = 950
