The explosives manufacturer started the prize as he felt guilty about all the people has had caused to be blown up . Has any one any modern examples of unlikely prizes that might be given by repentant manufacturers ?. The Mc Donalds nutrition award for instance .

Endless possibilities here. However, I have to be very careful not to upset the moral majority; especially as I seem to be in an amoral minority of one.

Yep, Vel, agree totally with yours - but I do think that the first could be jointly-named the Ariel Sharon / Osama Bin Laden Prize. After all, I would think they would both be proud of any contribution that increased the chances of an end to conflict! :eek:

I quite like Alan Titchmarsh's program. No, actually it's because of Charlie Dimmock.
