cheese-stiltonI aint got it yet but I’ll pick something up on my way to the pub.

Anyway, the last Wednesday quizzes of the year offer the following:

The Joker & The Thief, 7pm

Jackpot: £30

Cheat: One of the answers tonight is Shanghai

Brass Monkey, (Drummond Street), 9pm

Jackpot: £120

Cheat: One of the music round snips tonight is by the Hues Corporation, see vid below. Note: they actually had pretty decent A/V equipment back in 1974 but someone else was using it that day so the Hues Corp had to film their vid using a paper cup covered in clingfilm.

Wednesday Night Quizzes, Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes, as is the case every Wednesday:

The Joker & The Thief, 7pm

Brass Monkey (Drummond Street), 9pm

Your jackpots:

£60 at the Joker

£120 at the Monkey

Your cheats:

Every day I like to post a little information so that YOU, they girl or guy who could be fucked to look at the page, gets a wee head-start.

So tonight’s extra bonus info:

Joker: One of the answer in the music round is the Rolling Stones (see video below). When I heard this it was the first time I’d really liked the Stones. Until then I’d thought they were a little bland. But this is proper sexy.

Brass: Up at the monkey, one of the answers in the picture round is Liverpool, as in the football club. So that’ll please Liam if he’s in. Although, having typed, that I suddenly can’t remember – maybe he’s an Evertonian?

Vegans Lose Tiebreak As Heart Rules Head

I had a tiebreaker situation at the Tolbooth Tavern the other night with a nearest-the-bull style question:

How many turkeys are killed and eaten for Christmas every year in the UK?

There were two normal teams in the tiebreaker and one team containing vegans.

Afraid of upsetting the kelp-munchers in their group, the vegan-influenced wrote down “600,000” knowing all the time the answer was probably higher.

Of course the answer was 10 million and one of the other teams won the tiebreak and the £120.

Moral: The world is not always what you wish it to be.
