Winners Round Up

Hey! I’m not made of time. Over the last few weeks I have been a bit shabby with the updates and quiz reports.

Forgive me I am only a man. So, before I shoft these images out of the current folder forever, here’s a bucket of recent winners that I never quite round to writing up…

Flystrike

Flystrike! Winning at Reverie.

Angus's Team

I just think of this team as “Angus’s Team”. They change their name every week but their most vocal member is natural leader Angus (centre) who, like me, has been on Eggheads.

One Last Foop

This was One Last Push or One Last Foop, a variant of ONE SWELL FOOP. Actually I did write about their £160 win but this is a pic of the full team…

ACTION: If you use Facebook and you’ve ever been a winner at a DP Quiz, then have a look at the Dr Paul photos and see if you can tag yourself so all your friends can see how clever you are.

£160 Winners at Jenny Ha’s

Katy finally slew the TRUE or FALSE dragon last night with 5 out of 5 and a super duper £160 win before she moves to Glasgow forever.

Here are the 5 she got right. Would you have answered correctly?

  1. A survey of American tourists put Glasgow in the  top 10 European cities to visit. True or False?
  2. Chimpanzees laugh. True or False?
  3. The British MEdical Council once reccommended Marmite as a treatment for scrotal dermatitis. True or False?
  4. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Starlight Express is based on a George Orwell novel?
  5. Before they have snail sex, snails kiss each other?

Tough as hell – but Katy pulled through and ONE SWELL FOOP, disguised as “ONE LAST PUSH” were cash champions, while THE THREE STOOGES (minus Conor) were booze champs.

Back to £20 next week.

One Swell Foop Retire After Reverie Victory

ONE SWELL FOOP have had their moments over the last few months but now Euan has a job in Norwich making sugar and the team is dissolving like saccharine in tea.

They quit on a high with victory at the Reverie last night, with Paige holding her nerve to win an amazing game of Bozonko vs. the powerhouse that is Mister T.

Not the actual Mister T, mind – just a white bloke in an A-Team T-shirt.

So, SIXTY QUID plus WINE and good night Vienna.

Next Week: Bring someone who lives in EH9 for extra points

Beast Finally Beaten in £180 Meltdown

Phil ‘The Beast’ Collins and his dreadful riddles were finally slain at The Reverie last night as GOOGLE EYED came face to face with their maker and correctly nailed this easy Riddle of The Beast which, as I had promised, was the easiest one yet.

Google Eyed win £180

Which of these evil celebrities does Phil Collins respect the most? (answer at bottom)

  • Gary Glitter
  • Michael Barrymore
  • Michael Jackson
  • R Kelly

Of course, David from Google Eyed has cash winning form, his team won £100 back in April and another ton in May.

Now with £180 in July, its getting to the point where GOOGLE EYED need to start putting this income on their tax return!

Well done to ONE SWELL FOOP who kept the heid all the way through to win the actual quiz with 50 points(!) but unfortunately Euan was up against Spiderman in the Top Trumps and no one beats Spidey.

Red wine. No Money. Euan from One Swell Foop.

Back to ground zero next week folks, aka £20 jackpot and I think we’ll bring back the putting.

*ROTB answer – B. (Barrymore is the only one who has actually killed someone… albeit ‘accidentally’)

One Swell Foop in Imperious Form

ONE SWELL FOOP were bang in form last night at Jenny Ha’s, virtually raping the other teams and leaving them pregnant with illigitamate points.

this maybe stretches the metaphor too far – but they were very good and ended up with 46 points which briefly put  them in contention for this month’s million pounds

Meanwhile, Ewan scuffed out on the rubber egg challenge and left Stewart facing the Riddle of The Beast for £40.  He nailed it. Could you?

Q. What Does Phil Collins usually get his mum for Christmas?

A. Perfume

B. Chocolates

C. Magic Mushrooms

D. Soft Porn DVDs

The answer, of course, is Perfume because its the only one tested on animals. The Beast.

Montana or South Dakota?

Paige from ONE SWELL FOOP was so shocked and outraged by an answer at Jenny’s that I had to go and look it up a second time. I asked:

Q. In which modern-day US state is the site of the Battle of Little Big Horn (ie Custer’s Last Stand)?

I said Montana, The Foop said South Dakota and it was the wrong answer that allowed TEAM NEMO to sneak in for the win. Luckily: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Little_Big_Horn

Nemo

After a bit of bouncy-egg hoo-hah, it fell to Brian from BRASHLEY to challegen Phil Collins. Turns out his favourite film is Star Wars, rather than Titanic [more deaths].

Next week: £40

April League Winners – Let’s Get Quizzical

I’m going to rest the league for the next few months – until I get a sponsor anyway. However, I will be replacing the million pound scratch-card prize for teams in the boozer with an online contest. All you have to do to enter is sign up to the mailing list. Towards the end of the motnh I will send out a question or questions and the best answer will win a million pounds.

In the meantime, Let’s Get Quizzical pipped One Swell Foop for the honours in April, so I’ll give them a million pounds (in scratchcards) when I see them.

One Swell Foop Dominate At Jenny’s

ONE SWELL FOOP were the runaway winners at Jenny Ha’s to such an extent that they ended up with something ludicrous like a fifteen-point victory, even after playing safer than Durex in the final Minefield round, only choosing to answer one out of five questions. Crazy.

Meanwhile, Dusty aced the jokes round with some utter nonsense about talking like a frog.

Dusty’s delight turned to misery as he realised that the prize was a ZAC EFRON CALENDAR! Here’s Dusty himself, being unimpressed.

Then, the Beast was on form and Paige (or Page?) from  ONE SWELL FOOP went for Antarctica when she should have gone for Bangladesh. Now you know. Jackpot next week: £80

Edinburgh Man Bags Off With Cheryl Cole

The prize for the jokes round on Monday night at Jenny Ha’s was a Cheryl Cole 16-month calendar for 2010.

The delighted winner was Grum from ONE SWELL FOOP. Never has a man been so pleased by one calendar. Look at his delight.

Grum is thought to have made off with the calendar in a bag, hence the slightly spurious headline of this post.

And what the fuck is a 16-month calendar anyway?

£100 Goes in One Swell Foop

Grum, the sharp-shootin’ darts master from ONE SWELL FOOP was the hero as the team who have been threatening a victory for so long at both The Reverie and Jenny Ha’s, finally delivered in a brilliant final round at Jenny Ha’s which left their rivals scratching for chicken feed.

One Swell Foop Win £100

Grum took the challenge as the situation moved to the Jenny Ha’s dart board and he needed to score forty points to win the ton.

first dart was a single seventeen, good steady stuff. However dart number two landed in the single 6, leaving Grum with 17 required on the final arrow.

Taking his life in his hands and praying to all the saints of darts, Jocky, Eric and Phil – Grum slotted his final dart straight and true to the single 20 and, that’s the CHAMIPONSHIP.

A hundred pounds in cash IS a hundred pounds in cash. If you were to try and argue otherwise, you wold lose.

Hoorah for ONE SWELL FOOP!
