Thursday Night Edinburgh Pub Quizzes – Thu 15th Nov, 2018

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Macbeth (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: PJ & Duncan (music round).

Anyone 35-45 reading that PJ & Duncan are in the music round may just have experienced a wave of hot nostalgia.

Innocent times when Dec was Duncan and Ant was PJ, in the auld days before PJ stood for “Pished on the Juice”.

Anyway, as Winston Churchill probably used to say “Nostalgia is for the weak. Bite me.”

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight which is for the music round at the Newsroom:

Awful isn’t it?


By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics


Someone’s making money out of recycling and the world’s not getting fixed because even recycling still means making more stuff.

So, until X-boxes can be made out of lentils, the only true environmental fix is to stop consuming things.

But good luck trying to sell that idea to the filthy-minded public who, generally, just want to buy MORE STUFF and go MORE PLACES.

If some middle-class hippy is giving you shit about recycling, ask them if they’ve been on a plane this year.

In terms of carbon footprint: ONE passenger on a return flight to New York = total average UK household carbon footprint for three months.

So if you live with someone and you both go to New York for a long weekend, you’ll need to turn your house off for half a year when you get back if you want to “offset” the damage. Which you would never do.

And isn’t always the rich people barking on about what “we” must do to combat climate change?

Isn’t it always some Bono, Branson or Paltrow?

And how many flights do those chancers take per year?

And did you know that a toff travelling on first class flights creates a carbon footprint NINE times that of a passenger in economy.

They could turn ALL their houses off and they would never make up for it.

But we can stick our environment up our arse, can’t we? After all, they don’t want to sit in the same room as the plebs.

What a crew of utter wankers.


Anyway – come to the quiz. I love you all.

Great Big Jackpot Tonight

Any time we go £200 or more, I’d consider that a great jackpot. Your views may differ. I don’t know.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot £200. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is Gone With The Wind.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Them music round includes The New York Dolls who were, apparently Morrissey’s favourite band at one time. I only know a couple of their tunes but they rock. Reminds me a little of the Cramps, but with a more glam sound.

I just looked up the singer and am slightly surprised to discover he’s a 70s punk rock star who is still alive. Nice work, David Johansen.
