Wed Nov 7th 2018 – Wednesday Quizzes Tonight in Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight: come and get your bum warm in our pubs.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Boyzone (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Paula Radcliffe (pic round)

Two excellent midweek cash jackpots – should be enough to get you out of the house. Come and join in the fun.

Here’s the Boyzone song which is in tonight’s music round at the Joker. This tip is the wee bonus you get for looking at the website or reading the email.

Let’s not beat about the bush: Boyzone were pish. They were certainly not as good as Westlife.

The song’s a quality song, but that’s because it’s written by the Bee Gees and the Bee Gees write quality songs.

Behind schedule so I have little else to say except, SEE YOU AT THE QUIZ.

Yo,

Wednesday Quizzes, Edinburgh, 31st Oct

Quizzes tonight: if there are any questions related to Halloween, it’ll be a co-incidence.

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

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

Aye – I’m no that bothered about Halloween although I do have a great idea for a costume for a party I’m going to on Saturday. No idea if I’ll have time to getting round to making it. It’s a washing machine.

Not that my costume choices matter to you.

What’s really important is that tonight’s jackpots are both £90 and also tonight is your last chance to enter the Dead Pool game for November

What you’re dying to know is which Barry Manilow song has made it to the Brass Monkey music round tonight. Well, it’s this one:

There’s a shitty one on youtube which, although better video quality, is thoroughly depressing as Baz is all plastic age-face and, as gives the impression of a tired old performer as he sleep-walks through the song.

But in his day, Manilow was the best.

I saw him at least twice live (it might be three times but I can’t rightly recall). The guy is a showman. Not quite Freddie Mercury, but pretty damn good.

Which reminds me: go and see Bohemian Rhapsody. It is excellent.

And if you’re coming to the quiz tonight, don’t be a fanny. Thanks.

Wed Quizzes – Oct 24th

Quizzes tonight: Come out and feel what others feel.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Boney M (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Bassoon (pic round)

By the way, do yourself a favour and say “bassoon” out loud. It is very satisfying.

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight at the Joker. It is the greatest (Christmas) song ever recorded. Maybe except the Johnny Mathis one.

Totally great. Let’s get this Halloween pish oot the way. Bring on Christmas.

Come to the quiz and let love and brotherhood and peace reign all over the land.

Yeah,

Dr P
