Sunday Service: Pub Quiz For Your Pleasure

Think about pleasure. What does it mean?

Does it mean a walk in the countryside? Maybe. But with those midgies and lack of toilet facilities? Maybe not.

rubbish countryside
The Countryside: Rubbish

Does it mean sex? Maybe. But with those performance issues and gender politics? Maybe not.

Does it mean humping the opposition at pub quiz? Of course it does. Get your shot of pleasure. Tonight:

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: the music round includes an act named 5 Seconds of Summer. See vid below for the tune. It’s some weepy-weepy snowflake boyband shit.

8pm – The Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The picture round includes the answer Apocalypse Now. It’s a film about th Vietnam War. It’s supposed to be genius but the only time I saw it I fell asleep. I’m not saying it’s a bad film, it’s just a bit long and I was a bit knackered.

Sunday Gives and Never Takes

Sunday’s like your friend who brings you biscuits and coke when you are depressed. Sunday is nice.

The Persevere, 6pm

Easter Road is the location, the Percy is the venue and you can meet lots of local celebrities when you come to the quiz, such as The Plebs, Blue Fox Tuesday and The Chameleons.

Jackpot: The aforementioned Chameleons won the money last week, so we are back down to £30.

Cheat: The music round includes the B-52s performing ‘Rock Lobster’. First single I bought, as it happens. You can hear the song by clicking the video at the bottom of this post.

Tolbooth Tavern, 8pm

Halfway down the Canongate lurks the Tolbooth. If you can find it, you’ll enjoy it. Sunday smells like success.

Jackpot: Unusually, we have a bit of a rollover: it’s £90 tonight

Cheat: The picture round tonight includes the answer The Legend of Zelda. It’s something to do with computer games.

“I love the B-52s.”

There you go.

Valentine’s Day = Quiz

Solid Reasons

  1. Taking a girl to a quiz is ROMANTIC
  2. Taking a gut to a quiz is ROMANTIC
  3. Displaying the depth of you facts is ATTRACTIVE
  4. Quiz action has been scientifically correlated as FOREPLAY

Caveat

  1. If you take your date to the quiz but are rubbish at the quiz then you may not get a “happy ending”

Anyway: TONIGHT look like this:

6pm Persevere

Jackpot: £60 in sexy cash

Cheat: One of the answers in the list round can be Luxembourg
