Tonight’s quizzes :
6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Luxemboug (pic round)
8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Marvin Gaye (music round)
Not so much big sport this Sunday compared to last week which had the world cup cricket and Wimbledon.
Still, there will be someone who wants to watch the golf. Watching golf on TV is one thing I’ll probably never quite understand. I don’t get it.
Anyway, that’s not my job. My job is to deliver quality quiz questions to you at an affordable price and that’s what we’re going to do tonight.
By the way, here’s the audio cheat for tonight which refers to the music round at the Tolbooth Tavern:
It’s Marvin Gaye who, believe it or not, was straighte.
Well he had a couple of marriages and some kids and he was a drummer. That might not tell the whole story. According to the 10 Surprising Facts about Marvin Gaye page he added the “e” onto his name to deflect rumours of homosexuality.
Really? Then why not change his surname to something more straight and macho… like ‘Smith’ or ‘Colt’ or ‘Glock’?
And why does it matter? Why do people speculate so much on the sexuality and private lives of singers?
For it to be something of interest it must, in some way, matter.
But why does it matter? Where does Katy Perry share her love? Where does Zayn Malik place his penis in his spare time? Perhaps if it’s an answer we like then the music sounds better.
I don’t know. Call the scientists.
In any case, it’s Sunday and I’ll see you all at the quiz later. x
