I was chatting to a young fella last night before Brass Monkey Drummond Street quiz last night. Nice bloke, comes from Wakefield, plays the trumpet and I think he enjoyed the fact that I knew Wakefield was one corner of the Rhubarb Triangle

Anyway, when it came to the jackpot round I was waving a pair of £50 notes around to catch the eye and it certainly caught his.

He was over like a shot, wanted to see them up close

”I’ve never seen one in real life!”


“Can I hold one?”


I’m sure he was genuine and just wanted to look, but every instinct in my tight, grasping, Scottish hands debarred me from handing them over.

And he didn’t win the money, so he’s still not had a close look at them.

So what’s up with never having seen a fifty pound note? Either people from Wakefield are as poor as shit or this guy’s generation just never have any cash on them.

Up to now I’ve always thought cash will win. But this incident has made me think that maybe the younger folk actually WON’T miss cash when it’s gone because they have been so rigorously trained in not having any.

Dystopia looms. Anyway, we’re still all right for now, so come to the quiz while you can… before the killer robots get us!

Music Round Clue for Safari Lounge tonight:

This 80s classic by by MATTHEW WILDER is in tonight’s music round at The Safari Lounge and it’s just the best song ever made. I absolutely love it. Anyone who doesn’t react with happiness when they hear it should be taken out and shot. Not, let’s be clear, with the intent of killing them. That would be much. Maybe just shot in the little finger.
