Monday Pub Quizzes

Tonight – after the storm of money last week, we are back to normal.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: The music round includes Jam & Spoon. See vid below to hear the tune…

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat: One of the pic round answers is Greenland

I wouldn’t call my band ‘Jam And Spoon’ but then I have never come up with any towering, awesome, empowering and ballistic 1990s Europop either, so I’ll just shut the fuck up.

Sunday Night Quiz Edinburgh

Edinburgh is so desirable. Why do house prices keep rising in this city? It’s the top class pub quizzes what does it.

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: One of the pic round answers is Woodstock.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £30. Cheat: One of the music round answers is Rixton.

To listen to the moribund swathe of average-ness that is Rixton, have a look at the video, below. It’s awful. It’s like being smothered by pillow.

The Truth About Colombian Resin #39

There was a team at the Newsroom last year named C-39-ers

I asked them what CR stood for and they told me “Colombian Resin

This immediately sounded very dodgy, so I asked for more detail, hoping that perhaps some drug-lord mega-bandits were bringing some extra glamour to the already-sexy pub.

Turns out there are no narcotics involved.

It’s actually the name of a plastic polymer used to make the lenses for glasses. The team were opticians.

Who knew? Who knew that you could be looking through some Colombia Resin #39 as of THIS VERY MOMENT.

Oh yeah

Drawing Contest – Seals

My daughter loves seals so she asked me to ask you lot to draw seals if I was having a drawing contest. I did this a few times. Here are some of my favourite

The tusks make it a walrus, but its a good drawing.
Pop techno seal
The Kiss From A Rose joke
The only entry with a pun AND a skateboard
Looks like a ghost. Quality.
Like the kind of seal painting a caveperson would make (if they had never seen a seal and had no talent at all.)
Use of Colour!
Royal seal
Nice attitude and nice bucket of fish.
So cute
Professional Validation
The Kiss From a Rose joke (agian)
He died for us.

From Fez-wearing trickster, to actual Jesus, seals have got it all.

Last Ever Quiz Under Murderous Tory Regime Of Hate

Well, you never know. Corbyn might be PM this time tomorrow. Get to the pub!

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot : £120. Cheat: One of the music round artistes tonight is 3 Doors Down. See vid below to hear song.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat: One of the answers in the pic round is The BBC

I’ve just listened to this song. It’s really awful. It’s like it’s been put together by a committee of Tories and Lib Dems and performed by some radge out of UKIP.

If you like this music it’s because you are fundamentally a bad person.

Think about your life choices, for the sake of GOD.

Wednesday Quizzes: Leith Walk and Old Town

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is Shona.

9pm – The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street). Jackpot £30. Cheat: One of the music round hits is a mid-70s brazen disco number by an act called 5000 Volts. which was really just Tina Charles. See vid below to hear the tune.

I love her voice. Tina Charles’s big solo hit was ‘I love To Love (But My Baby Just Loves To Dance)’. Even if you’re as old as me you might not remember it but it’s burned in my brain – one of the first songs I remember hearing as a kid.

So cool.

Wikipedia says she’s 63 these days. I hope she’s all right.

Christopher Walken Is Thirty-Six-Ish

Pulled Pork spent ages trying to work out the age of this face in the picture round the other night at the Persevere.

Christopher Walken in Dogs of War
About 36 or 37, probz

Of course, all I was asking was the identity of the actor which, as you probably know, is Christopher Walken.

After a bit of searching, I found the picture is from the 1980 film ‘Dogs of War’.

The film was released in December 1980 so they were probably filming it earlier that year. Walken was born in March 1943, so in March 1980 he owuld have turned 37.

So in the picture he’s 36 or 37.

That’s as much research on this highly trivial topic that I prepared to make.

I can’t be arsed to go into any more detail.

I’m already questioning the point of this blog post.

God only knows what you’re thinking if you’re reading it.

Maybe it’s sunny outside as you read this.

No such problems here.

It’s absolutely pishing down, and has been all day.

Huge Jackpot Tonight (Brass Monkey Leith)

All right. Helmets on. We’ve hit three hundred.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith – Jackpot £300. Cheat: Picture round has a Chinstrap Penguin.

9pm – The Safari Lounge – Jackpot £30. Cheat: Music round contains The Flying Lizards. You’ll know the song (see vid below)

Everyone knows the song but I didn’t realise there was a video for it. I love youtube.

Of course, the best thing about youtube is the comments where everyone is mad. Here are just a few comments, just from this video:

======================================================
I’m shocked to see that the singer is a white lady. I always thought she sounded like an asian woman.
======================================================
Could be the voice of Melania Trump?
No, Melania has more raspy sound due to all the cum in her throat.
+MrSKIN my Dick could never go near a dudes ass or month dude. that just isn’t the only reason you’re gay trust me. the reason you’re gay is probably because YOU ARE GAY!
