April League Winners – Let’s Get Quizzical

I’m going to rest the league for the next few months – until I get a sponsor anyway. However, I will be replacing the million pound scratch-card prize for teams in the boozer with an online contest. All you have to do to enter is sign up to the mailing list. Towards the end of the motnh I will send out a question or questions and the best answer will win a million pounds.

In the meantime, Let’s Get Quizzical pipped One Swell Foop for the honours in April, so I’ll give them a million pounds (in scratchcards) when I see them.

Amazing Dance Off Leads to £100

Last night at The Reverie saw an epic battle between awesome legends BENGT, LETS GET QUIZZICAL and E=MC HAMMER SQUARED plus new names like COLOMBO KICKS LANSBURY’S ARSE.

However, in the end it was previous £100 winners GOOGLE EYED who found their form at just the right time to finish first in a three-way tie with NEMO and COLOMBO KICKS LANSBURY’S ARSE.

The only sensible solution to a 3-way tie was the dance off. There was an immediate contrast with Gordon from Google Eyed flipping like a weird panther while Stuart from NEMO just complained about his leg. Falling in between was Brendan from COLOMBO KICKS LANSBURY’S ARSE who was a bit like the Lib Dems as everyone liked him, but just not quite enough.

There’s Gordon, thrilling the punters IN THEIR FACE. The winning team as a whole looked like this:

The Riddle of the Beast proved a tricky one and it came down to a choice of Phil Collins’s favourite Britney Spears track being either:

  • Hit Me Baby One More Time
  • Toxic
  • I’m a Slave 4 U
  • Do Somethin

Gordon went for “I’m a Slave For You”  – based on PC’s love of old-fashioned morals and its the confidence paid off. The £100 was THAT EASY!

One Swell Foop Dominate At Jenny’s

ONE SWELL FOOP were the runaway winners at Jenny Ha’s to such an extent that they ended up with something ludicrous like a fifteen-point victory, even after playing safer than Durex in the final Minefield round, only choosing to answer one out of five questions. Crazy.

Meanwhile, Dusty aced the jokes round with some utter nonsense about talking like a frog.

Dusty’s delight turned to misery as he realised that the prize was a ZAC EFRON CALENDAR! Here’s Dusty himself, being unimpressed.

Then, the Beast was on form and Paige (or Page?) from  ONE SWELL FOOP went for Antarctica when she should have gone for Bangladesh. Now you know. Jackpot next week: £80

Edinburgh Man Bags Off With Cheryl Cole

The prize for the jokes round on Monday night at Jenny Ha’s was a Cheryl Cole 16-month calendar for 2010.

The delighted winner was Grum from ONE SWELL FOOP. Never has a man been so pleased by one calendar. Look at his delight.

Grum is thought to have made off with the calendar in a bag, hence the slightly spurious headline of this post.

And what the fuck is a 16-month calendar anyway?

The Stigma & The Shame – GONE!

Our largest regular team at the Newsroom were starting to build an ignominious  history of coming second on thursday nights but they got their own back after a fourth-round wobble and finished the night as 3-point winners.

On the night they called themselves THE STIGMA AND THE SHAME, referring to their previous not-quite-wins but that stigma is now BUSTED. Boom.

Also in the frame is Stewart who despite COMPLAINING ABOUT EVERYTHING, snapped the Riddle of The Beast in half and walked away with twenty quid.

In the Jokes Round, it seems that The Madeleine McCann/Icelandic Volcano joke is the new black.

Nemo Win 2

Immediately following their win at Jenny’s, a fast black taxi cab whisked TEAM NEMO up to the Reverie where they continued their winning ways with a big victory. The team are surely back in form.

Stewart faced the challenge (balloons) and I managed to capture the look of pre-challenge fear on his face rather than the smug winning after-shot which is more standard.

Anyway – Stewart couldny blaw the balloon so it was up to a chap from newcomers COLLOP CITY to win the warships top trumps challenge (his Japanese battleship vs my German Submarine Hunter – no contest) and face the Riddle of The Beast.

Unfortunately, the Beast was on top form, confusing and upsetting with his strange yet logical ways.

What quality is Phil Collins looking for in his fourth wife?

Answer: Looks. That’s what women are for.

Result: Rollover and we are playing for £100 next week. See you at 9pm.

Nemo Win 1

Team NEMO, also known as THE TEAM WITH NO NAME enjoyed a spectacuarlyl succesful Monday.

First at the Jenny Ha’s with a tight victory over LET’S GET QUIZZICAL and ONE SWELL FOOP.

Nemo

Unfortunately for team Nemo, the Riddle of The Beast proved more tricky than David Blaine in a box of snakes.

What is Phil Collins’s favourite sport at the winter Olympics. Of course, the biathlon cos its the only one which includes a gun.

Result: Rollover. £60 next Monday the 3rd May.
