Wednesday 11th June: Quiz Situations Tonight

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Kate Bush (music round)

9pm – Damm 27. Jackpot £40. Cheat: Pan’s Labyrinth(pic round)

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

Kate Bush is one of the cheat answers for tonight’s quizzes.

But what is the meaning of Kate Bush?

As was often the case, Gungawins found the best expression of sentiment:

Here is the song which features at the Joker And The Thief (7pm):

It’s a fan made video (had a few of those recently) so there’s no story there. It’s later Kate Bush so you won’t automatically like it.

But you don’t need to like it, you just need to know it.

I tend to put things in the music round that I actually like but I try to shake myself out of this and keep adding variety. If there’s an artist who never ever seems to be in the music round and you’re sick of my choices, then let me know who I’m missing.

Anyway: another music round clue, this time for the Brass Monkey (9pm).

The Brass music round includes this one by Alicia Keys

There is not literally a girl on fire. It’s a metaphor.

Anyway, make sure your team is not on actual fire when you bring them to the boozer tonight.

Apart from upsetting health & safety it would be actually dangerous.

And I’m trying to get through this in one piece. Sometimes it’s all I ask.

Getting through

Remember that if you want something classy, Damm 27 hosted by Shawn should be your option. Shawn’s from South Africa but you can understand what he’s saying, so it’s cool.

THE SURVIVORS is a good name for a team name, particularly when one of the members sets their hair on fire during round 1 but you’re alert enough to smother it before it turns into a hospital situation.

hair on fire

That’s how it was rolling the other week at the Cellar Monkey.

Quizzing is not an extreme sport, but danger lurks everywhere. Never forget!

The Time That Dan Saved A Baby From A Burning Bus

As an alternative to the jokes round the other night at the Reverie, I tried a bragging round.

Instruction: write down the best thing you have ever done. Best brag wins a packet of mint Viscount biscuits.

Here’s what was claimed:

  1. I’ve seen Elton John live in Las Vegas (at Caesar’s Palace)
  2. I was born with  this moustache.
  3. I caught crabs off Chelsea Clinton
  4. I saved a baby from a burning bus (a number eight) outside the Reverie and put the fire oot! This is backed up by a video  that a pure radge boy filmed on his tidy phone!
  5. I have my grandfather’s mummified ears in a box at home.
  6. My dad used to own this place.
  7. Dan hada bath with Whitney Houston.
  8. My brother in law won X FActor (Steve Brookstein)
  9. I rode a unicorn

Dan who works at the Reverie was responisble for number 4 above and that  proved to be the winner on the grounds that is heroic and is definitely true.

DAn, hiding behind the evil of the Beast

I  thought the crabs-from-Chelsea-Clinton might stand a chance but the more they were questioned, the more the team responsible appeared to have no back up.
