Tonight’s Edinburgh Pub Quizzes With Your Old Pal Dr Paul

I am a friend to you. I can help you. I can solve all of your problems. I am THE DOC. Come to my quizzes tonight.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: P.I.L. are in the music round – see vid below.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat: One of the answers for the pic round is Liberal Democrats

P.I.L. was John Lydon’s vehicle after he had finished being Johnny Rotten out of the Sex Pistols.

I only knew the singles, never got an album and I remember thinking at the time that I was never very sure if I liked the songs or not.

I still feel that way. I get his voice. But he never topped the Pistols. Pistols were ace.

By the way, anyone can win that lovely cash that lurks at the end of every Dr Paul quiz. Last week at the Brass Leith £50 in single-crispy form went the way of Andy. Look how happy it made him:

Andy is so happy
Andy is so happy

So Damn Close

This is what a team looks like when they were so damn close to the money.

so close to the money
so close…

They were probably one question out. Looks to me like it was for about £200.

But the right answer eluded them and now they have nothing except sullen regret.

Apart from the guy in the middle. He’s not playing along, he’s giving it the “not bothered”. Who knows. Maybe he isn’t bothered.

I’ve no way of telling.

I’m a quizmaster, not a mindreader.

Both entries nailed 8/8 in the multi choice, so it went to the tiebreaker.

Can you guess who won?
Here’s a clue:
Somewhat more than 68 people
Bad luck, Gordon!

Lemmy or Jimmy Hill: The £4 Million Question

When Jimmy Hill died last month on the 19th December, Nicholas was quickly in touch to express his hopes and dreams that by selecting Hill for death, he would be rewarded handsomely in scratchcards.

 

_lemmy-hillIt looked like a good bet with only ten days of December left. For the bet to fail, someone who had been picked by a DP Quizzer who was more famous than Jimmy Hill would have to cash in their chips before the end of the month.

At this point, Lemmy out of Motorhead was cancer-free.

However, a Boxing Day diagnosis of a hyper-aggressive cancer quickly caused the rocker to unravel and before the week was out, Lemmy was on the slab.

A quick check on the Dead Pool list reveals that Lemmy WAS selected for December by a quizzer called Karin who put in her entry in at some point in November at the Tolbooth Tavern.

So, for the first time in 18 months of the constest, we have to employ rule one in the Dead Pool terms and conditions which is that in the event of two droppers in one month, the definition of “most famous” shall be decided by a 10-year worldwide average on Google Trends. Let the two names be entered:

So, despite his OBE and despite his work revolutionising modern British football from removing the wage-cap to introducing three-points for a win, Hill has been trumped for fame by the sweaty, hard-living, hard-rocking frontman of Motorhead, Lemmy.

Well played Karin. I’ll be in touch to arrange your prize which will consist of £4 Million in potential scratchcard wins, seeing as there hasn’t been a Dead Pool winner since Cilla Black departed the party in August.
