In Series 15 Episode 6 first shown shown on 1 December 2017, Sandi asked the panel what the word "oojah-cum-spliff" meant.
The word in the OED, and what PG Wodehouse used, is oojah-cum-spiff (i.e. without the "l").
I know it doesn't have the same humorous impact, but oojah-cum-spiff is the correct word.

I havent had a tv to see any of the Sandi Toksvig QIs

I did wonder if this thread topic was going to bring marijuana into a Bertie Wooster tale...
