While Bristle is digging out some easier ones, here is one I found on a beer bottle top yesterday.
Which country has the longest name with no letter repeated?
I did know this once upon a time, but I can't remember it now. Kurdistan would be my guess, but I have a feeling it may be one of the other stans
It's not Kurdistan or any of the other stans.
It's Switzerland.
No-one else got it right either. :)
One more try to help pass the time.
Who is this former Posh Player-Manager?
Born 4 December 1914 in Yorkshire, he came to Peterborough United as player-manager in 1954, and as Manager took the team to several famous FA Cup runs which included getting to the Fourth Round in 1956–57 and three consecutive Midland League titles between 1956 and 1958.

Apologies for the lateness, but I believe he was Arsenal manager when Tottenham Hotspur won the double in 1961.

We have a winner!!
Congratulations Dave.
But you lose one point for being late.
You lose one point for not mentioning the name of the person we are talking about (George Swindin).
And you lose one point for not sending your reply by PM.
So, in the overall final list of winners you came second.

No. You were awarded 5 points for knowing that George Swindin was Arsenal's manager when Spurs won the double in 1961.
The top three were
Bristle on plus 3 points (for nearly getting Switzerland right)
You on plus 2.
Me on minus 1.
Haven't you ever watched QI? If you have you would know how the scoring works!!

I started a joke that had the whole world crying
But I didn't see that the joke was on me
