It’s Monday and you can stave off the FEAR OF DYING by forgetting about everything for a few hours at the pub.

Drinking at the pub has been proven by major scientists as a top cause of not giving a monkey’s which, in turn, has been proven by other scientists as the key to happiness.

Boozing midweek = pleasure and goodness and the great thing is that you don’t even need me to tell you that – you ALREADY KNOW.


Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Argyle Bar:

Complaining about the ex – a lucrative

Boney M were the greatest band of the late seventies. They knocked out hit after hit after hit and this is just one example of their genius.

So why were they called Boney M. The answer on Wikipedia is concise, so I’m I’m just to cut and paste it:

“[The name was] …a pseudonym Farian had created for himself after watching the Australian detective show Boney.[3] He said:

“I turned on the TV one day and it was the end of a detective series. I just caught the credits and it said Boney. Nice name, I thought – Boney, Boney, Boney… Boney M. Boney, Boney, Boney M. Nice sound. Simple.”

So now you know.

Meanwhile, the Safari Lounge music round will contain Darude:

Some kind of robbery / heist

Hey – it’s another video with a heist / robbery – but sadly you never get to find out what’s in the briefcase.

If it’s cash, I wonder how much they got, because the case doesn’t look very big.

Perhaps it is a traveller’s cheque for fifty million pounds. I have no idea if you even get traveller’s cheques these days.

Quick Google result – yes you can still get them but hardly anyone still uses them.

Regarding Darude – obviously the ‘Sandstorm’ tune is a banger so it was exciting when he was announced to be Finland’s Eurovision entry for this year but in the end, big disappointment: his song was pish.

See you tonight.
