This Week's Question: What do you do when someone shouts 'Heads' on stage?
This Week's Winner: Joe Brown! He said: Pick one of the following options: -Hope the coin comes up Tails, because we're drama people with schadenfreude. -Join in singing "...Shoulders knees and toes, knees and toes" -Grab a hammer and hit the heads of the mechanical animals as part of the arcade game that is being built for the set -Duck and cover because a house may be about to fall on you -Stand there at wait for the falling item to hit you - take it like a man... albeit one about to be concussed.
