The Newsroom might have a lower jackpot tonight but it will almost certainly have a higher glamour factor.
Sometimes there’s so much glamour in that place, you can’t breathe. Maybe it’s the excitement of being with the beautiful people. Maybe it’s diminished air quality on account of the fake tan continual released into the atmosphere.
I always tell people that the Newsroom is the thickest pub of the week and definitely the right place to come if you want to win money.
It’s not strictly true about the thick thing. It’s just that the Newsroom attracts staff-nights-out and the like where people are maybe not one hundred per cent quiz-focussed.
So if you know the quiz and how it goes, you usually do have a bit of an advantage over these passers-by. And it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but most people who come from other quizzes end up liking the Newsroom when they come. Tonight would be a good night to try it.
Giles Angels, for example, started off quizzing at the Joker but have found the Newsroom a happy hunting-ground. Maybe they’ll win the money tonight? We’ll see…
By the way, Grace Jones was what it was all about in the eighties. No one was more aloof, untouchable, and supreme as the Jones.
That was the image anyway. I had one of her albums. It was all right.
Freezing, snowing and wet. Must be nearly May. Tonight’s quizzes are the last of the month so it’s your last chance to play Dead Pool for May. If the weather continues like this, it will be a wonder if ANYONE survives till June.
Great jackpots tonight though, so if you’re going to win one before you pop, tonight would be a good time to do it.
