Dead Pool September 2018

Here’s the full list of potential droppers that you picked for September 2018. If one of these dies then we’ll have a winner.

It looks like we have a winner for August because someone did pick John McCain. I just have to get in touch with the winner to confirm…

If you entered David Lynch for September then that’s a great pick but you didn’t make the list because I could not for the life of me read your email address. So therefore, bin.

Old favourite Prince Philip leads the way again with eight people pinning their million-pound hopes on the mad old racist who refuses to die.

A bit of late-month bandwagon-hopping saw the new entry of Hearts boss Craig Levein, but the footballer seems to be on the mend now.

Nice to see Hollywood power-nonce  Kevin Spacey on the list. You never know…

Monday Night Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Diana Ross (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: The B-52s (music round)

Top quiz action tonight. Heavy, sexy, powerful. Will we have an ABBA singalong? Unlikely but you never know…

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari:

By the way, did you know that 1983 actually looked like this clip. This is not some effect to do with low-resolution recording and videotape degradation, the real world actually looked like this.

Thanks to developments in technology and politics, real life went hi-def in about 1998. And you kids complain if your skinny latte isn’t hot enough. You kids don’t know you’re born.

By the way – we have a winner for DEAD POOL in August. Old John McCain lost his long-running battle with death and that means that Tomas Sanders is a winner.

Dead Pool September 2017
Sep 2017 – the last time there was a John McCain Dead Pool surge

If Tomas can drag his ass to the quiz before the end of September he will receive a shiny £1 million scratchcard.

################################

Best prize for Dead Pool to date was £100 won by the bloke who predicted the demise of BB King back in 2015. Could this one be better?

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

First one at the Brass Leith finishes 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)

#################################

By the way 2018 Cunto Cards are in stock so stop me and buy a deck if you want to get in on the action. Or click on the image below to buy them online…

Monday Night Pub Quiz

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Fringe finished. I think it might be the fireworks tonight so quiz may be quiet – but hopefully I’ll see you in the nice cosy pub where everyone is your friend. Hopefully you’ll see the wisdom in attending the quiz instead of taking your chances with the sea of hooligans and wanks that populate these large outdoor events. And it might rain.

Mmmmm, quiz.

Mind you, if you do eschew the quiz tonight, you won’t have to listen to the fifteen second clip of this absolute steamer that’s in the Safari Lounge music round tonight.

Amazingly, all the youtube comments say they love it. But I remember it being an advert to sell Ford Escorts. Tainted.

Occasionally, May turns up in Dead Pool. It’s the last few days of August so I am collecting names for September. Get your entry in tonight.

Wednesday Night Pub Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Viven Leigh (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: One Republic (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

This is the most average thing I have ever heard. It makes Maroon 5 sound like the fount of personality.

It sounds like Orson, Train and all those other American bands that sounds the same.

Last.fm describes OneRepublic as ‘genreless’.

That’s not true. I can name the genre. The genre is “American Pish”

By the way, last chance to play Dead Pool for June is either tonight or tomorrow.

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Wednesday Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Architects (music round)

Big jackpot got won last week at the Joker by the SPECKIES, so well done to them and it means that our biggest jackpot tonight is at the Monkey. Ninety pounds on offer.

Here’s the cheat tip for the Monkey, it’s some rotten old pop garage thing from 2000. You don’t hear stuff like this very much these days except in Dr Paul Quiz music rounds

Meanwhile, I listed the May dead pool entries this morning. Have a look at the post for more detail, but basically all the smart money has moved onto George Bush Sr. (the older, less dippit of the Bush prez duo)

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

May Dead Pool Line Up

I’ve just completed the data entry for May DEAD POOL. Your picks for the month look like this:

Big stories this month:

  1. A heavy upswing in support for the demise of George Bush Senior. This is, presumably, in the wake of the death of his partner Barbara during April. Plus the facts that he is old as fuck (93) and a bit fucked (Parkinson’s, sepsis, etc)
  2. The first appearance, as far as I can recall, of Amber Rudd. I reckon not. Tory cuntos who lose their jobs tend to just pop up later in mutated form. Rather than die. Sadly.
  3. Same with rapists. Bill Cosby will protest, complain, go to jail, serve time, and sincerely think it is all someone else’s fault. He won’t kill himself. That’s not how that mob operate.
  4. Quizbuster mythbuster kiss fact participants Nichele Nichols and William Shatner are BOTH on the list. Their kiss on Star Trek (as Uhuru and Kirk) is regularly quoted as the first interracial kiss on television. But this is not true.
  5. Also, no real story but it’s nice to see Scotland’s top showbiz talent Marti Pellow making a wee appearance on the list. I saw him once doing Billy Flynn in ‘Chicago’ and I thought he was brilliant. I hope he doesn’t die.

Sunday Satisfaction

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: The Horrors (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: French (pic round)

Sunday is a good day but the music round clue for tonight at the Percy is a bit meh. Here it is:

It goes on a bit. Listen to twenty seconds of it and you’ll get the idea.

I have nothing to say except that Dale Winton was better than Verne Troyer who was, in turn, better than Avicii.

I don’t think anyone had any of them in Dead Pool.

November 2017 Dead Pool: Names

Here are the names you chose for Dead Pool this month. If you picked one that drops, you win a £1 million scratchcard. In the past this has been worth as much as a hundred pounds!

If someone else picks the same dead person, I make a draw.

If more than one person on the list dies, I used Google Trends (10 year worldwide average) to determine which is the MORE FAMOUS. And that will be the “winner”.

The new kid on the block is Harvey Weinstein with at least four entries on his name.

But it’s a strong month for the old favourites with Britain’s favourite not-dead-yet couple completely in command of the bulk of entries. In other words: Queenie and Phil Rule OK.
