Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

Super TWO HUNDRED quid vibes at the Newsroom tonight. Get your hands on the do re mi.

By the way I have double-checked the info above. These ARE the correct cheats this week.

Here is the music round cheat for the Newsroom:

Totally great. Suede were fantastic. Maybe the last good band before I stopped caring about guitar bands and refocused my brain towards pop.

The video has KPs and binmen, is full of rubbish and backstreet shite in it and still makes the city look sexy. Nice work.

Why The Olympics Is Rubbish

By the way. See all this hand-wringing moralising about Russian dope cheats in sport? It’s all utter nonsense.

All UK athletes, all US athletes and all athletes from countries like Germany, Switzerland and Canada have been doping for years, every single one of them.

The doping that enhances their performances isn’t necessarily chemical but it’s just as effective: MONEY.

If the medals won at the Olympics were shared out between the number of people in a country, the UK would have a medal for every 77,000 people but in India one medal would have to be shared between 45 million folk.

Does this mean British people are 591 times better than Indian people?

Does it mean we are five hundred times as sporty, five hundred times as fit and healthy?

Of course not, but the Olympic medal table is held up like some nation performance indicator.

FACT: Top sport is for privileged people.

Broadcasters like the BBC love the cosy narrative about sports people being ordinary folks making big life sacrifices for a noble end. That’s partly true but the real story includes a shit load of privilege which is never part of the story.

The same media have been busy crying about Russia and drugs and how our poor Brits have been done out of medals.

Drug cheats and wealth cheats. It’s all the same if you never get a shot in the first place.

Democratic Republic of Congo has more people than the UK and is still waiting for it’s first Olympic medal. We have more than 800.

The Olympics is a quadrennial festival of posh idiots, forever shoving overwhelming privilege right down the throats of poor countries and reminding them who’s the boss.

Hoary Old Politician From 1920s Gives You A Clue

Tonight’s quiz carries a jackpot of £60 and starts at 7pm at Brass Monkey Leith, your premier Leith Walk establishment for that kind of thing.

Cheat news: one of the possible answers tonight is Andrew Bonar-Law who was a politician kunto from the 1920s._andrewbonarlawHe looks like a right old barrel of laughs, as you can see. In fact, he looks like Paw Broon is Paw Broon was really posh and not habitually drunk and angry.

Unlike Paw Broon, Bonar-Law had a top class parliamentary career and ended up Prim Minister. Mind you as soon as he got the job of PM he pretty much died immediately (after only 211 days in office), so there’s your fucking luck right there.

Paw Broon is still alive.

Ballad Of A Failed Cheat

Nocheating1Brigid told me that in all her years going to pub quizzes she only ever attempted to cheat once.

The incident happened years ago, before the availability of Google on phones but after the invention of SMS.

Brigid decided that one question was too hard and that her mum would know. So, after a quick run round the moral maze she decided it was OK to text her mum the question, mentioning that it was for a pub quiz.

The return text came back swiftly. All it said was:

Don’t cheat“.

Quality parenting.

The Only Pub Quiz Team In The World Who Have Never Cheated

I got this handed to me by the calm member from the ANIMALS at the Newsroom last week, who explained to me that the irate member was  REALLY PISSED OFF.

This happened after I got an answer factually wrong and was helped by a few teams showing me the right answer, via their mobile devices, from the web.

Some of the teams who put me right had actually put wrong answers themselves so I tihnk its fair to assume that most pub quiz teams don’t bother with the cheating.

What do you think?
