Massive win for the RUBBER GUN SQUAD last week at the Newsroom when they won £300 so we’re back to £50 there tonight.
This means the jackpot of the week now switches to the Argyle Bar where £180 is on offer.
Dead Pool for August is live. I took the first entries last night and there were at least a couple of entries for Zimbabwe’s favourite bawbag, Robert Mugabe.
Could the tyrant’s time be up?
Meanwhile, here’s a look at the Newsroom music round cheat clip for tonight. It’s everyone’s favourite singer, Alvin Stardust, who ruled the seventies like a benign leather dictator.
The video features Alvin Stardust and his trademark glove, a glove which brought terror to children watching the telly in the seventies. Alvin often had this schtick where he was “mean” and didn’t smile. It scared some people.
Sometimes he dropped it and was the nice guy. If you have nine minutes on your hands, you should check out his appearance on the Wheeltappers and Shunters.
This is Peak UK Seventies. Includes a section where Stardust mercilessly teases one helpless woman with THE GLOVE and is then chased off stage by another, more forward, woman in her quest for the OTHER GLOVE.
They literally don’t make them like that anymore.
Yeah. Also, remember to stop me and buy a packet of Cunto Cards if you’re looking for that special gift for the foul-mouthed fiend in your life.
Thursday is a great day to come to the quiz. Take it from me. I do all the nights and I know that people on Thursdays are among the most sane. Maybe its just the bars I do on Thursdays.
The Argyle has sane young students with bright futures. The Newsroom has sane office people, holding lives together including full-on adult shit like jobs and relationships and parenting and making enough cash to afford cocktails and wine.
Meanwhile, here’s Die Antwoord who pretty much make the best pop videos. This one is in the music round at the Newsroom tonight:
Cannae beat Die Antwoord. Best band since Tatu and/or S club 7
