First up are Swankie and Big Al who came second at the Newsroom last week…
… behind this brother-sister team from somewhere near Penicuik who came back strongly in the last round to win first place.
We had Quizmas at The Reverie which was your Christmas Dinner plus a special quiz, all for £12.50. Oddly rnough it ended in a dance off starring Sarah and Stella from THE PORN ELVES and THE OVULATORS repsectively. Here they are, full on:
The dance-off ended in a tie and so they split the prizes: £30 for OVULATORS and a bottle of whiskey plus £20 for the PORN ELVES.
Quizmas dinner was followed by a standard Dr Paul quiz in which GOOGLE EYED reigned supreme. Here they are, joined by Oliver Reed:
However, it was Angus from the Cheeseplant team who eventually got a shot at the Golden Putt.
Unfortunately, Angus neglected to “be the ball” and sent his effort a few inches wide right to create a £100 rollover for next week.
Then back at the Newsroom this Thursday, ITS ONLY FIZZY WINE were champs but missed out on the Riddle of The BEast, so its a £40 Christmas next Thursday.

A new star was born on the dance-off scene on Monday night as a chap called “John” (pictured, left) down-pointed, bopped and slid his way into the hearts of the Reverie crowd, beating challengers from Flystrike and the Cheeseplant team.
Well done to John and his team, Thundercunt, who finished the evening as champions. But there was to be no cash glory for anyone as the True or False weaved its secret weirdness once again.
This means a jackpot of £200 next Monday and a promise that the jackpot MUST BE WON. We’ll try it the normal way and then, if no one wins that, we’ll have a shoot out involving everyone for the money. Yeah!
Last night at The Reverie saw an epic battle between awesome legends BENGT, LETS GET QUIZZICAL and E=MC HAMMER SQUARED plus new names like COLOMBO KICKS LANSBURY’S ARSE.
However, in the end it was previous £100 winnersGOOGLE EYED who found their form at just the right time to finish first in a three-way tie with NEMO and COLOMBO KICKS LANSBURY’S ARSE.
The only sensible solution to a 3-way tie was the dance off. There was an immediate contrast with Gordon from Google Eyed flipping like a weird panther while Stuart from NEMO just complained about his leg. Falling in between was Brendan from COLOMBO KICKS LANSBURY’S ARSE who was a bit like the Lib Dems as everyone liked him, but just not quite enough.
There’s Gordon, thrilling the punters IN THEIR FACE. The winning team as a whole looked like this:
The Riddle of the Beast proved a tricky one and it came down to a choice of Phil Collins’s favourite Britney Spears track being either:
Hit Me Baby One More Time
I’m a Slave 4 U
Gordon went for “I’m a Slave For You” – based on PC’s love of old-fashioned morals and its the confidence paid off. The £100 was THAT EASY!
David from GOOGLE EYED showed the world the exact meaning of a dance-off on Monday night at the Reverie.
He humped, banged and grinded his way through the occasion to leave the onlookers breathless and dazed, like the aftermath of a good shag.
The other bloke, from THE BAYES FACTOR, never stood a chance
That was the easy bit. David then steeled himself for the £100 Golden Putt which had moved another two floorboards closer to the hole. David took his time and sent the ball unerringly into the jaws of victory.
The Reverie quiz last night ended up with the kind of revolution that only happens once per generation – a new dance was born in the white heat of the dance off and it already has a name.
It started when the quiz finished up with a draw between EASY DRAW (last week’s winners) and the SOLID STATE CREW (Scientists on the Christmas piss).
The Reverie crowd demanded a dance off and they got one, in style. Jack from SOLID STATE was the star as he used his knowledge of physics and chemistry to create something NEVER SEEN IN DANCE BEFORE.
It went like this:
JUMP up and down while flapping both arms like a novelty plastic Chinese cat
RUN out of pub’s doors, on to the street,
BURST back through the doors
EXECUTE a commando roll, and…
RESUME move number 1.
No one has any idea what Tom did during the dance off because everyone was watching Jack. Tom was gracious in defeat – he knew he was beat; while Jack was lifted shoulder-high and was carried around the streets of Newington like a new God by the delirious crowd who knew they had paid witness to something special.
Back at the boozer, I asked Jack what he called his awesome and new style of dancing. What is the name of this phenomenon?
Jack carried on to total quiz victory, making a mockery of the bouncy-egg challenge and nailing the difficult mystery voice. Would you have known this?
The well-bred environs of South-Central Edinburgh rocked to the power of a man last night, and that man was Alex.
His team, the FENNEL FRONTIER had drawn for first place, but Alex took the bull by the horns and spat in the opposition’s chips by inventing a new type of dancing which had never been seen in the First World.
Alex refused to stop there and won through to the ultimate question but unfortunately that’s where his luck ran out.
Phil Collins, destroyer of worlds, was victorious again and the rollover is £60 for next Monday. Beast.
By the way, I didn’t get any film of Alex’s style but here’s a flashback from the old days in Glasgow featuring dance-off another legend… George.
