The Argyle Bar quiz is on Thursday at 7pm. Usually Downstairs

Thursday Is For Geniuses

The headline lies. Anyone is allowed to come out on a Thursday. And so you should. Obviously it’s been a hard week what with the continuing war in Syria and Michael Ball standing in for Ken Bruce on Radio 2.

When you hear Popmaster but not by Ken Bruce, it’s like getting a handjob off a Princess Diana lookalike. It’s still fairly cool, but it’s not the real thing.

Anyway: tonight is like this:

Argyle Bar/Cellar Monkey, 7pm

Jackpot: A win last week so we’re playing for the basic £50

Cheat: One of the answer in the list round is “Ethiopia

Newsroom, 9pm

Jackpot: We had a weird week last Thurs, but no winner so the pot is a fairly healthy £150

Cheat: One of the music round “tracks” is by Three Dog Night. You’ll know the song. It goes like this
