£90 jackpot at o'connor's
Watch out for Lenny

Kerry is back tonight at O’Connor’s – and with the jackpot at £90 there’s every chance Lenny Henry will turn up.

Sorry, SIR Lenny Henry. I forgot about his knighthood that he earned by advertising cheap hotels that are handily places for easy access to the Motorway network.

One of the answers in tonight’s picture round is ‘Blackadder 2’

Y’all remember Blackadder don’t you? Or is it one of those things that I think is commonly known but it turns out it was on TV 30 years ago and isn’t quite as universal as I think?

Nahhh, everyone knows Blackadder.

It’s a difficult balancing act sometimes, asking questions which everyone can guess at. Finding a set of questions is hard where everything can ring a bell but which are not too easy for the seasoned quiz-goers.

And yet we manage it every time. That’s cos DP Quiz is the best. For real. Top truth.

How old is Kailzie
How old questions – universal.

That’s why “how old questions” sometimes occur in the picture round – they are a great example of something that is universally in common. Also – bloody hard to Google!

So come to the quiz tonight. 9pm at O’Connor’s

you owe it to yourself.

Cheers,

Dr Paul

Tuesday 23rd July

Tonight’s Quiz:

9pm – O’Connors. Jackpot: £30.

On the corner of Broughton Road and Rodney Street

Kerry is back tongiht at O’Connor’s – the pub that’s lighting up Canonmills and becoming the first choice boozer for everyone from Dundas Street to Powderhall.

The quiz is firmly up and running now and you can now experience Tuesday boozing with quiz.

Tuesday has been declared by drinking scientists to be the best day of the week to go out because all the arseholes stay at home on a Tuesday, leaving the boozer to geniuses, cool people and legends.

As ever, I’ll post a cheat on the day. Tonight’s cheat is for the music round and it’s a slightly bizarre one-hit wonder from the 1980s, performed by a band named Haysi Fantayzee:

The Quo

They look like trustafarians and the song is about John Wayne sodomizing a native American in a teepee.

If you’re disgusted by this, remember the clip will only be twenty seconds long or thereabouts.

This band were more or less a one-hit wonder (although I like Shiny Shiny better).

Whatever happened to them? Well the bloke became a top DJ and eventually married Patsy Kensit for a wee while.

The woman went back to her art school roots and became a photogtapher.

Maybe one or both of them will be at the quiz tonight?
