Last Wednesday Quizzes of The Year

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Chris Griffin (pic round)

8pm – Harmonium. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Styx (music round – see below)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Childish Gambino  (music round)

These are the last Wednesday quizzes of the year. In addition: tonight and tomorrow will be your ONLY chances to play DEAD POOL for January. I didn’t get the forms out last week and was going to start on MOnday, only to be swiped by the bad flu.

Bad flu has receded enough for me to do the quizzes tonight but I probably won’t be dancing.

Gordon who does the quiz at Harmonium has reported no illness, so I’m sure he’ll be dancing to keep you entertained in between questions.

The Styx song in tonight’s music round at the Harmonium quiz is a timeless work of beautiful genius.

It’s unquestionably a great song but like many classics of its era, becomes somewhat tarnished by youtube comment left by fat old plonks saying things like “This is real music. Everything today is plastic rap and sucks.”

The Childish Gambino song in the music round at the Monkey which sounded to me, at first, just another modern rap song and a bit plasticky, but I have to admit liking the video. Maybe I like the song a bit better now, after hearing it twice.

And I was going to type something about the old versus the new but, fuck, I’ve just realised this tune is four years old itself. To me that’s nowt – to some of your it’s a lifetime.

Put it this way: we all die someday.

November 2017 Dead Pool: Names

Here are the names you chose for Dead Pool this month. If you picked one that drops, you win a £1 million scratchcard. In the past this has been worth as much as a hundred pounds!

If someone else picks the same dead person, I make a draw.

If more than one person on the list dies, I used Google Trends (10 year worldwide average) to determine which is the MORE FAMOUS. And that will be the “winner”.

The new kid on the block is Harvey Weinstein with at least four entries on his name.

But it’s a strong month for the old favourites with Britain’s favourite not-dead-yet couple completely in command of the bulk of entries. In other words: Queenie and Phil Rule OK.

Yes indeed. A little of what you fancy may do you good and a spoonful of sugar may well make the medicine go down but everyone knows:

TOO MUCH SUGAR WILL KILL YOU

Dead Pool Latest: July 2017

An extraordinary entry this month: more than ONE QUARTER of the entries named Queen’s husband Prince Philip as the one likely to die.

Dead Pool Line Up May 2017

Here are the names you chose to back for death on the #deadpool for May 2017.

Bigger font = more people choosing that name, so once again the front runners include Donald Trump who has been ‘popular’ on dead pool for many months now and Prince Philip who has had to retire despite not actually doing anything in the first place.

If you’re too knackered to even do fuck all… maybe it’s time?

Other top picks include Brucie, Kirky and Bush (Senior), as usual. There was fresh heat for piano player Elton John after his well-reported illness and Alex Ferguson has been picking up the votes so I guess he must have been on TV at some point, looking ropey.

Fun new entries this month include Angela Lansbury, Dennis Skinner (The Beast of Bolsover), Penelope Keith and Karem Abdul-Jabbar (the basketballer).
