No World Cup – Come To The Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Red (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: Lily Allen (music round)

The World Cup is great and everything but it goes on a bit. Thankfully there is a couple of days break so we can get on with our lives in the interim.

And by “get on without lives” I mean – come to the quiz.

£60 and £150 are the prizes tonight. Here’s a sneak look at one of the music round answers for the Brass Monkey (Drummond Street) tonight:

The song is trying hard to be provocative, different and original and controversial but music-wise it’s poor. I’d rather listen to Queen or James Last.

I just read her Wikipedia page to try and find something nice to say about her as balance but to be honest its mainly a litany of minor rows.

Let’s talk about Holland instead.

The correct term is ‘The Netherlands‘ although, in a pub quiz setting, your quizmaster should usually accept ‘Holland‘ as a perfectly acceptable alternative answer.

The point is that he should know what you meant.

This is the case at Dr Paul quiz. If you spell something wrong or get something slightly wrong but I know what you meant, you’ll usually get the points. (See rules)

It is my humble effort not to be a cunt.

Sometimes we all fail.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Action (Edinburgh)

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Ronald Reagan (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: Macklemore (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Joker:

The song is pish, the video is worse.

It looks like it was made by the same people that make those beer adverts where a perfectly constructed cross-section of races all go to a festival and everyone has a great (and yet meaningful) time.

The racial cross-section is always perfectly constructed in this scenario. But the rule is no oldies and no uggos. Everyone comes from a catalogue. With the possible exception of one fat person who is a lot of “fun”.

At the same time as diversity is rigidly ticked-off, stereotypes abound. A proper load of shite.

Anyway, as luck would have it the music round includes neither the turd of a video nor any clip longer than twenty seconds, “so we’re good” as the people in the shit video would undoubtedly say.

By the way: A HUNDRED AND TWENTY QUID AT THE MONKEY TONIGHT. That’s pretty good. I imagine all the stars will be turning up for that: Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, etc.
