Honkenbonkers gets a shout out on the BBC’s long-standing hit series QI (Quite Interesting).
In the first QI episode this season, host Sandi Toksvig presented to her panel a list of Neologisms (New Words). Seven words were discussed and one of them was Honkenbonkers (awesome/amazing). The panelists, which included Alan Davies, Cariad Lloyd, Romesh Ranganathan and Phil Jupitus, chatted about these neologisms. Several spoke positively about Honkenbonkers.
And get this … the show was watched by over 1.8 million people. Now that is Honkenbonkers!
