x is to y

On old 11+ papers there used to be questions along the lines of

hand is to glove as

foot is to _____________ sock.

That sort of thing.

I have now topped an amazing 30k hits, whilst Fr Tim is approaching 3 million.

We'll round that up to a factor of a hundred.

The BBC were reporting 200 000 pilgrims in Rome at 8am today- 8am bulletin speaking of, '10s of thousands,' to EWTN's 2 million.

I suppose we should be grateful that the beeb is only out by a factor of 10, rather than a factor of 100.
