David from GOOGLE EYED showed the world the exact meaning of a dance-off on Monday night at the Reverie.
He humped, banged and grinded his way through the occasion to leave the onlookers breathless and dazed, like the aftermath of a good shag.
The other bloke, from THE BAYES FACTOR, never stood a chance
That was the easy bit. David then steeled himself for the £100 Golden Putt which had moved another two floorboards closer to the hole. David took his time and sent the ball unerringly into the jaws of victory.
The Newsroom is a sweet bar with loads of booze for sale on Leith Street. In case you don’t know, Leith St is not in Leith: its in the city centre at the East End of Princes St and the bar is opposite the front door of the St James Centre.
Anyway, ultimate winners were the NEWSROOM NEWBIES who stay out somewhere weird like Juniper Green. They told me that Juniper Green is the oldest town in Edinburgh or something like that. If I was to research it properly it might turn into a new quiz fact.
So the Newbies took the bubbly and second place got the crat of beer. Not bad work for WARD 6 who came in late after a hard shift with the nutters.
The chap from the winning team ended up having a putt for the cash (ten thousand pounds) but missed, so we’ll roll it over and play for £20,000 next week.
See you next Thursday night at 9pm for those big bucks!
Ahh, the old Tolkein in my sleep Hobbit joke. What I really like about this particular entry is the fact that the team have taken the care and the effort to write (“pun on talking”) in brackets in case I’m too thick to get it…
… and then decided to score it out. What? In case it confuses me?
King of Comedy, Dusty, nearly won the jokes round without even handing in a joke, such was the abysmal quality of the material available. In the end it was the 2 G’s who took away a copy of “Management” starring Jennifer Aniston. How will I explain the absence of this DVD to my wife?
Quiz-wise, the contest ended in victory for WE’RE NOT SURE IF WE’RE GOING TO STAY who were, in fact, not sure if they were going to stay but ended up stying and winning!
The duo selected Laura to throw the darts for £40 after Alan succesfully nailed the trivia challenge and it was so-near, so-far as Laura’s last dart landed a fraction south of the treble twenty.
Yes, it was within 0.4 inches of scoring the money or as we like to say, a centimetre.
That means we have a rollover: £60 next Monday and the darts target comes down again: this time to a score 60 with three darts.
Can you match the total to win? See you next Monday at 7pm.
The golden putt edged one foot closer to the hole last night as an Irish bloke called Gleep from GLEEPS GO MEEP MEEP putted for £80.
Gleep himself (second from right) took plenty of time sussing out the lie of the land (conventional wisdom now says the ball breaks from right to left) and appeared to strike the ball sweetly but his putt rattled off the starboard jaw of the hole and bobbled out, leaving Gleep empty fisted and giving us another rollover.
Yep- we’re reached £100 and that’ll be the pot next week with the golden putt moving one foot closer the hole.
All this excitement followed a near FIGHT when Dan of the GLEEPS (pictured, far right) snatched the bonus round paper from the clutched fist of Stewart (team NEMO) resulting soon afterwards in this awesome threat, disguised as an entry in the jokes round:
Actually, there were some pretty decent jokes in the jokes round last night, including a few I hadn’t seen before. I’ll post them up at various intervals under the jokes section.
£100 next Monday. You’d be crazy to miss it. To get a hand with the quiz, the smart move is to sign up to the Monday newsletter.
