Mon 28th Jan 2019 – Super Quizzes Ahoy

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£100. Cheat: The Byrds (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Cabaret (pic round)

Well, we have a rollover at the Brass Monkey Leith, a rare pleasure. Come and get your filthy grubby hands all over the £100 and then piss it up the wall or save it. I don’t mind which.

Well done to the Speckies who took the slightly large pot at the Safari last week which means we are back to basics in Abbeyhill tonight, as if there were any other way.

The cheat music for tonight’s quiz at the Brass Monkey Leith. It’s the Byrds who existed in the 1960s and, without looking up Wikipedia, I’ll guess that exactly half of them are now dead. I’ll look it up while you’re watching the video:

Right, there are five of them, so the prediction of half is going to be wrong.

The video is from 1965, so from that line up THREE are alive and TWO are dead. The dead ones have almost identical surnames: Clark and Clarke. I don’t think this is significant.

Anyway, they are 40% dead and 60% alive. Nice going.

Maybe some of the alive ones will come to the quiz tonight. You never know when you’re going to meet some auld guy who was a star in the sixties.

Yo,
