Is This Joke Racist?

joke about snoop

This is the sort of joke that frequently gets handed in immediately attracts loud claims of racism.

However, after re-reading the joke it appears that the colour of Dr Dre’s skin is descriptive and only really included to take the listener in one direction before switching them back with the punchline.

So: racist or not? You decide.

Superheroes Swashbuckle To First

The SWASHBUCKLING SUPERHEROES came from behind to snatch the quiz from the hands of LETS GET QUIZZICAL and the SEVEN BLUNDERS OF THE WORLD in an exciting finish to last night’s Reverie quiz which was as tight as a quarter pound of mince for your dinner.

Swashbuckling Superheroes

Alas, they were let down on the Top Trumps and that allowed LETS GET QUIZZICAL to face the Riddle of The Beast. Yep – Collins is back.

Unfortunately, it turns out that Phil Collins’s religion is NOT Buddhism. It’s Christianity (for the ultra-violent imagery). So we have a rollover £40 next week and it will be the Riddle of The Beast again until someone can STOP PHIL COLLINS…

Dusty Devastation

Jenny Ha’s Pimp Daddy supreme, Dusty, struck again last night with the power of a crossbow. Boom – in the final round and allcomers were despatched. Then he was showered with kisses from his “ladies”.

How does he do it?

Unfortunately the win of wine was NOT followed by cash as Jo stepped forward to go for the darts. The target was 50 or more with 3 darts and they all scored but unfortunately only added up to eleven.

eleven scored

So the miss means that the target is down to 40 points with three darts and the Jackpot is UP TO A HUNDRED POUNDS next Monday, the 12th April…

Rollover at Newsroom

Night before Friday bank holiday = a few folk in and hot competition at the quiz. The main force and eventualy winners were THE BRAW LADS AND LASSES who sewed things up with a belting 40 points.

Second place team were the BAWBAGS and both teams were handily situated adjacently so one photo covered first and second:

David from the Bawbags eventually got the chance to putt for scratchcard glory but missed both shots and we have another rollover. Three scratchies next week – potential £30,000 or thereabouts to be won!

These two awesome scratchies plus one more next Thursday. See you there!

League Winners – March

League winners for March are THE TEAM WITH NO NAME, scoring 37 league points with Jenny Ha’s regulars THE 3 STOOGES coming in second.

Strictly speaking, the Team With No Name is a mega-team, a combo, an agglomeration – so how they split the MILLION POUNDS will be interesting.

To simplify things at my end, I’m going to do a new league table for April which just totals up your points. Simple as that. A million pounds is the prize again….

Another Rollover at the Darts

The Jenny Ha’s jackpot rises by £20 every week and the asked-for total on the dart board gets lower.

This week the challenge was to hit 60 with three darts. Catherine from the TEAM WITH NO NAME came close but for the second week in a row it was baw-hair stuff and the jackpot survives until next Monday (Easter Monday) when we’ll be playing for £80 and the target on the board will be 50 points with 3 darts.

Thanks to Grum for supplying the last-minute emergency darts!
