Proper Big Jackpot Tonight At The Argyle

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £210. Cheat answer: Tintin (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Albert Collins (music round)

So last week was a weird one at the Argyle: heightened jackpot but low turnout. Will it be the same again this week? If so, it increases your own chances of winning the big money if you attend and play the jackpot round.

The cheat music for tonight is for the later quiz at the Newsroom (9pm) and it’s a band called The Vapors. You all know the song:

That’s all I’ve got to say today except that I am still surprised that giraffes sleep standing up (used the question at both quizzes last night).

I fell asleep standing up once. I was on the London Underground. When I woke up I had no idea what the fuck was going on. I guess giraffes feel like this EVERY SINGLE DAY.

The rest of the time they must spend wondering how everyone got so small.


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.

Monday Edinburgh Pub Quizzes – Tonight

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Japan (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Ulster (pic round)

It’s raining. Better head to the pub.

Tonight’s quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith concludes 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)

The music cheat for tonight is for the Brass. It’s Japan, even though it sounds very much like Duran:

A good proportion of the youtube comments remark on the physical beauty of the singer: David Sylvian. That was about 35 years ago.

He looks like this now:

At least he hasn’t got fat.

The Fairly Obvious Difference Between Nottingham and Nagasaki

Last week I posed a question in the same-letter round, asking which city had been nuclear-bombed on 9th August 1945.

Without being part of the same-letter round, this question would get a lot of wrong guesses of Hiroshima which was three days earlier. However there were enough clues elsewhere in the round to get the letter N.

_nottinghamThe above scene has never happened. But not according to one rogue quiz team unit:

Do people in the East Midlands suffer from congenital deformities? Perhaps this really did happen and there was a cover up. Questions need to be asked.
