Letters and numbers each get their moment in the spotlight on this week’s new episode. The Ubu Division rages on with Jac, Paul, and David squaring off in three rounds of pop culture games and trivia. They’ll start with a patented “One Letter Off” game, this time with the titles of action movies. Then, we’ll peruse the extravagant prices of iconic (and not so iconic) props from movies and TV. A game with info you can use in your real life.* The lightning round caps it all off and sends one of three players to the next round! *for people with money or whatever.

Always dressed in black and red,
with distinctive spikes atop his head.
Find him in the Beano pages,
where he's frequently possessed by rages,
and very little is left unsaid.
The truly malevolent UK version of Dennis the Menace (distinguished from the mischievous US version) always dresses in a black and red jumper, and has a distinctive spiky haircut mirrored by that of his dog, Gnasher. His exploits appeared for years in kid's comics anthology The Beano, where he leaves very little unsaid (he's pretty nasty verbally as well as physically to those he wants to torment), and gets real mad, real quick. Recent cartoons have attempted to soften him, and sometimes give him a hero turn, but, at his heart, he's still a reprehensible bully.
