Bad Answer – No Grip on Metric Concept

Question: If you have a million pennies, how many pounds have you got? The answer involves moving the decimal place a couple of shifts t oget £10,000.

Most got it right. A few stumbled in to £100,000 but the worst was this answer from a pair of American birds a the end of the bar (in the Reverie).

My Birthday Quiz

It was my birthday on Monday and that didn’t really kick in until the Reverie.

I got 4 cards (2 points awarded for each card apart from the shitty knocked-together one by the Canadians which got  1 point) but Neil trumped the situation by bringing out a cake and a big card just after round 4. Candles, everything.

This was worth 10 points but still wasn’t enough to win the quiz cos Neil’s team was pretty much derailed by some pissed bird trying to jump his bones.

Meanwhile, the victory went to GOOGLE EYED who defintiely answered most questions correctly but only pipped E=MC HAMMERED by a couple of points after another controversial bonus round.

Again, no one was able to handle 5 true or false questions to win the jackpot and so we have an £80 rollover next week. See you there.

The Gang (Uber Hate) Much Love

THE GANG are the crew from the festival show Uber Hate Gang, which is getting 5-star reviews at the Underbelly.

After flopping at last week’s quiz, the crew came back, determined to win and that’s exactly what they did, putting allcomers to the theatrical sword.

What was very nice of them was to put a couple of tickets up for the winners of the jokes round to go and see their performance tomorrow (Thursday). So thanks for that.

Go and see "Uber Hate Gang" at the Underbelly

Despite the win, no one from The Gang or any other team could win the jackpot and so we roll up to an impressive £120 next week.

Also next week we’re hoping to break the record for the Jenny Ha’s Fag Break which was equalled this week with TEN smokers and friends.

Ten folk - the record is equalled!

Remember: you don’t have to smoke to take part in the fag break!

Foreign Repentance

The French nation have been turning up now again at the Reverie, perhaps attracted by the name.

But, some are better at the quiz than others. This lot only got four in the first  three rounds and got fuck all in round four.

At leas they had the common courtesy to apologise for their utter shit-ness.

Learn from this, less humble foreigners.

The Marital Cycle In All Forms

At last night’s Reverie quiz we had stars from all the points on the wheel of marriage.

We had:

A team featuring a doe-eyed couple in their twenties who had just got engaged to each other 2 days ago. Aw.

Just engaged, he's been getting the milk for 8 years and now he's bought the cow.

At the bar, we had a team called THE FUCK BUDDIES (DON’T TELL OUR PARTNERS) a pair of glowing 40-somethings who didn’t care about how badly they were doing in the quiz because they were going to fuck each other later on in direct violation of their existing marriages/partnerships.

[NO PHOTOGRAPH AVAILABLE]

And we had worthy quiz winners GOOGLE EYED who left their sister’s wedding (apparently it was a bit shit) to come to the quiz. Awesome.

Google Eyed (core members)

No winner in the True – False shoot out though, so we have a £60 rollover next week.
