Wednesday Quizzes in Edinburgh – Nov 14th 2018

Quizzes tonight: both jackpots are smoking. Come put the fire in your pocket!

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £150. Cheat: Archimedes (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: Timbuk3 (music round)

The video explains that this song was about the threat of nuclear war but the public ignored that and adopted the song as a high-school graduation anthem. It was a one-hit wonder.

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.
