Planet of The Jackpots

I’ve given away more than £700 since last Thursday. Early January was pretty sparse for jackpots but most of them seem to have been landed at the same time.

Anyway, life moves on and we have £60 plus £30 tonight,

The Joker & The Thief, 7pm

The newest pub on the Dr Paul circuit is a weird little booze hole on Elm Row (parto f Letih Walk). The trick is that it’s so nice once you get inside that it is almost impossible to leave. People have gone missing for weeks in there.

Jackpot: £60

Cheat: one of the answers tonight is Giglio. What’s Giglio? You’ll remember Giglio was the scene  of this disaster which is, amazingly, four years ago now.

The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street) 9pm

Jackpot: £30

Cheat: One of the songs in the music round is by The Damned who were a 70s/80s punk band but this was their biggest hit, a huge pop classic reworking of an old 60s number. One of the best covers of all time, I reckons (despite the relative shite-ness of the This Top of The Pops lip-sync moment):

 

Meanwhile, here’s some of the cash, and the cash winners of the last week :

Terry Wogan Dead. No More Scones.

2015Terry Wogan was a massive fan of crumpets and scones. Terry Wogan literally LOVED to butter up those floury snacks and cram them inside of his face.

Loved ones and work colleagues spoke lovingly of the scones and crumpets as “the only thing that could momentarily stem his relentless tsunami of genial banter”.

He wouldn’t stop at butter either. The lovable old Irish/English millionaire broadcaster wouldn’t hesitate to add a hefty dollop of jam to what he, being a DJ, couldn’t help calling “the mix”.

All over England and Ireland today there are scones that will never now know the mouth of Wogan. It’s the day the jam died.

Scone but not forgotten.

At least, with less than twelve hours remaining on HMRC’s clock, he no longer has to worry about his tax return.
