Oh come on! You can do better than that!

What! A full week and no answers to Trisha's quiz? Well, it might be
because there is a question missing:

As all scuba diving doctors know, as soon as the boat has pulled out
of port for its seven-day "reefs and wrecks" tour, the captain will ask if
there are any medics on board.

Do you:

a. explain that the 'Dr' on your passport was a PhD in ancient

b. keep quiet

c. say you did once do a St John's course, though you didn't bother
completing the certificate.
