We all used to shake to this back in the day and probably would shake again if someone drags us out to a wedding.

Mon 29th October 2018 – Monday Night Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Adriano Celentano (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Happy Feet (music round)

Last week at the Safari we discovered that an average Emperor Penguin stands at 3’9″*. This week we feature penguins in the picture round. What is going on. Some sinister penguin takeover? Stay tuned.

Here’s the music round free answer, it applies to the Brass Monkey Leith and it is a gloriously made-up piece of 1970s lingual nonsense from Italy’s master of entertainment, Adriano Celentano:

You’ve probably seen this before.

Celentano wrote a song to show how he thought Western (English language) pop music sounded to Italian ears.

It’s proper gibberish but various people have tried to fit it to English words. Here’s one example.

Anyway: vegans, trans, gay, straight, tall, dwarf, multi-ethnic, ginger people, penguins, bus drivers and billionaires, you’re all welcome to the quiz tonight. Let there be no walls.

Mon 22nd October 2018 – Monday Night Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Hanna-Barbera (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: The Streets (music round)

Big wins last Monday – both for the Speckies. Money returns to normal tonight.

Here’s the music round free answer, it applies to the Safari Lounge quiz:

Dry your eyes? There’s a sentiment for the Snowflake generation (you) that bursts into tears at the merest unavailability of a vegan option or lack of fifty-two differently-gendered toilet bathroom situations.

See in my day – it was all woolly mammoths and national service and being a vegetarian (1987-93) was fucking hard work.

Actually it was easy enough – you just didn’t eat meat.

What am I ranting about? Nothing really – just a cheap attempt to be controversial and edgy. All I really want is for you to come to the quiz. Answer my cry for help: TONIGHT.

Yo,

Dr P

Yeah. Monday quiz. Yeah. Woop. Excitement. THRILL.

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Brass Leith, it’s the Inspiral Carpets:

Power pop from the Madchester band who were usually better than the Happy Mondays or The Stone Roses. Ah – the good old days.

Anyway, let’s not get sentimental. The good old days are dead, like Hitler. Let’s move on and embrace the new, like Boris Johnson.

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

August In Edinburgh. It’s Hell Get Me Out Of Here… Or Is It?

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Bad Company (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Beastie Boys (pic round)

It’s hitting week three of the Fringe and everyone has had enough. Edinburgh is a nightmare. You can’t GET anywhere. You can’t get served anywhere without an enormous queue.

Well, not exactly.

Of course, the simple solution is that all you have to do is step OUTSIDE the city centre.

I knew a woman from Down South who once had a fringe show on Broughton Street, very near the Cask & Barrel, or whatever that big boozer is called (on the corner of London Street). I remarked that it was a good venue, city centre and she looked at me like I was mad.

As far as she was concerned, Broughton Street could have been the moon. She said NO ONE would come to her show – it was too far away.

So that’s the festival mentality: If it’s not EH1 then it can get tae fuck.

The upside of this is that the city remains relatively calm outside the bubble o’madness. So get yourself to Leith, get yourself to Abbeyhill if you need a break from the city centre crazies.

Come and do the quiz. And win things. And be happy.

Here’s tonight’s music round cheat which applies to the early quiz at Brass Monkey Leith:

Best youtube comment for this comes from someone called Kevin:

“Came for the song, stayed for the chest hair. Not gay.”

Tonight’s quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith concludes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Ulster (pic round)

It’s raining. Better head to the pub.

Tonight’s quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith concludes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

The music cheat for tonight is for the Brass. It’s Japan, even though it sounds very much like Duran:

A good proportion of the youtube comments remark on the physical beauty of the singer: David Sylvian. That was about 35 years ago.

He looks like this now:

At least he hasn’t got fat.

Monday Night Pub Quiz Action, Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Dexy’s Midnight Runners (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Snow Patrol (pic round)

Come to the quiz. You might meet the love of your life. It’s happened before. People who meet at the quiz sometimes get married.

This is not a warning or a threat. I’m just saying.

Meanwhile: tonight’s music round free answer is for the Brass Monkey Leith where the music round will contain a clip of this song by Dexy’s Midnight Runners:

The picture answer for Brass Monkey tonight is Snow Patrol who are described by Wikipedia as a Northern Irish band but a quick sketch through their page reveals that a large part of the band’s history took place in Scotland, as they were formed in Dundee and lived in Glasgow as they tried to break through.

It’s a good story of persistence and showbiz and worth a read, even if you’re like me and think their music is dishwater.

Last chance to enter August Dead Pool is tonight. Don’t miss.

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£100. Cheat: Indianapolis 500 (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Walker Brothers (music round)

We are slowly getting the hang of this football hooligan chanting lark:

  • Come and have a feel if you think you’re feely enough.
  • You’re going home in a public transport system.
  • You’re going to get your feely felt feeled in.

See. More prosaically, come to the quiz. I have jackpot cash, quiz questions and answers galore plus other stuff which you can only fathom by coming to one of the actual quizzes tonight.

As a way of thanking you for reading this far, I now present a preview of one of the answers in the music round at tonight’s Safari Lounge quiz.

It’s the Walker Brothers and it was probably the one tune in the round that you one hundred per cent definitely knew.

Ah well, I try to help but its hard.

The Most Amazing True Facts In The World Ever

I had a wee bonus-prize contest at one of my quizzes last night where I asked teams to write down the very best fact they knew, with the winner to be judged on the “fact” that sounded more or less true and was the most entertaining.

Here is the list of what our teams came up with:

  1. Boiling water freezes faster than cold water.
  2. The Adelaide river is in the Northern Territory.
  3. The only male actor to play a woman in every film they made is Lassie.
  4. There are 239 beans in a tin of Heinz – just one more and they’d be 240.
  5. The main food ingredient in dynamite is peanuts.
  6. They can fit 2.6 billion transistors into a 22 nano-meter space, now powering our PCs.
  7. The Royal baby and Blue Ivy Carter are very distant cousins through French ancestors.
  8. The USA are the current holders of the Olympic Men’s Rugby gold medal.
  9. If you draw a circle around the outside of the Great Pyramid of Giza, then draw one inside as close to the [illegible] as possible, the difference in circumference lengths is equal to the speed of light.
  10. Hippos sweat their own suncreen. And it is red!
  11. The duck-billed platypus is the only venomous mammal in the world.
  12. The Mantis Shrimp can shut its claws so quickly it creates a sonic boom and stuns its prey.
  13. Rats can’t spew
  14. The Kimono Dragon has 2 penises and the female kangaroo has 2 vaginas.
  15. Kirkcaldy’s population is 52,000

What do you think was the winner?
