Today's Topic Oblongs

If you're the first to work out what the topic theme of the week is then you will win a big shiny oblong!

The shininess of your oblong will depend on how many topics have been posted so far when you've worked out the theme. This, of course, is determined by what day you got it right on.

Monday: Diamond oblong 10 points
Tuesday: Platinum oblong 8 points
Wednesday: Gold oblong 6 points
Thursday: Silver oblong 4 points
Friday: Bronze oblong 2 points

Discretionary oblongs are also awarded for meritorious activities such as predicting a future topic, identifying the 'odd one out' (a topic that fits the theme but is in some way different from the other four), correcting a piece of disinformation, etc. A bonus oblong will also be awarded to whoever suggests the best alternative theme of the week. But beware, you may also be penalised for unmeritorious activities such as making unreasonable demands for oblongs.

Merit: Marble oblong 1 point
Good effort: Cardboard oblong 0 points
Being a twat: Welsh oblong -1 point

Here is the current tally of oblong holders:
