Thursday Night Quizzes And The Viability of The Jokes Round

We’ve had a run of jackpots on Thursday nights recently so I might be inclined to make the jackpot bastard-difficult tonight. We’ll see what happens, see what comes out of my randomiser…

The other thing, should we bring back the jokes round or is it always doomed to be shite?

Meanwhile, here’s the shoop for tonight’s quizzes:

Argyle Bar (Cellar), 7pm

Jackpot: A scintillating, titillating £30. Hey.

Cheat: The quiz includes Man 2 Man & Man Parrish in the music round (see vid below), a massive 80s banger of Jurassic proportions.

Newsroom, 9pm

After the relative intellectual fervour of the Argyle, a fast cab whisks me off to the Newsroom where the transient and the drunk dominate the scene. As I’ve said before, if you ever want to actually win a quiz, just come to the Newsroom.

Jackpot: A quasi-terrific £50

Cheat: The quiz includes the answer Argentina, as part of the picture round.

Quiz winner
loads of money!

Here’s the video:

Well, You Made It.

Weclome to the new week. Last week started off with Jamie Oliver and his forks. This week starts off with hallelujah birdsong and internal pleasure that’s hard to price.

Then, as if the Earth were not already good to you, there’s the quiz!

Brass Monkey Leith, 7pm

Come enter the world of Monday Night Quizzing where even people from the countryside can sometimes win!

Jackpot: £50 cash

Cheat: The picture round includes Paul Cezanne

Safari Lounge, 9pm

Abbeyhill for Thrills

Jackpot: £30

Cheat: The music round tonight will include The Vaccines. This song:

I’ve just a had a look at the video. The guy doesn’t look like a pop singer at all. He looks like a guy who comes round to fix your computer but can’t work out what the problem is. He looks like the sort of bloke who doesn’t know what do do at a rave. He looks like his jokes are all preceded by the statement: “Listen. I’ve got this really good joke.”

That’s all a bit judgemental. Now I feel bad for the guy.

However, I’ve now just Wiki’d him. Turns he’s called Justin and the great-grandson of a famous painter and the son of a film-maker.

Wiki says:

“…he grew up in a “musical household” and began playing music by borrowing his father’s guitars.[3] It has been said that he loved Elvis during his childhood.

In June 2010 Justin graduated from King’s College London with a degree in History.[4]

Career

During his early teens, he started an alt-country band called The Eldora Parade, and at 16 he played in a hardcore punk band Fashion Police Brutality.

So, perhaps unreasonably, I now hate him again.

Thursday – Kinkiest Night of The Week

On Thursday, both the quizzes offer £50 jackpot/rollover. This means that even on an utterly basic night like tonight where both jackpots were won last week, I can still offer you a hundred quid.

Cheat: One of the answers tonight is “Kidderminster
