Odds and Ends

Series 15 - Episode 6 Odds and Ends



Never mind your big, flashy natural history series – QI can offer an insight into, for instance, the courtship of the male salamander or the reproductive workings of the butterfly. In this episode we also learn where a mesentery and a paddywhack are to be found – they’re both body parts, apparently.

But as so often, the best comedy comes when the subject turns to [italics] private [italics] parts, with both Sandi Toksvig and Romesh Ranganathan milking some deliciously [italics] low [italics] comedy. Also: a museum of noses and the sad meaning of “obsolagnium”.


Romesh Ranganathan, Matt Lucas and Liza Tarbuck join regular panellist Alan Davies and host Sandi Toksvig for an unconventional look at the theme `Odds and Ends'. During the course of the show, the panellists learn how to tell a schnauzerorgan from a paddywhack. As ever, correctness and even intelligence go out of the window, as the fiendishly difficult questions lead to points being awarded for the answers its questionmaster finds most interesting, as opposed to correct.
