Monday Is A New You

A new you. No gym.
A new you. No relationship.
A new you. No stupid diet.
A new you. Booze.
A new you. Monday booze.
A new you. Monday strong booze.

Why not, I mean… we’ll all be dead or working in fifty years. Let’s hump it.

Tonight’s jackpot at the Brass Monkey Leith (quiz starts 7pm) is a measly £20 but you could put all of that into BOOZE and reap the benefits, like a slick city trader. But drunk.

Cheat news: Swansea is one of the answers tonight.

Here’s last night’s funny custard. There’s no way you can win this tonight cos it’s already gone but maybe you’ll win something even funnier. Who knows?

No One Wants Uma Thurman

I’ve been trying to give away this copy of MY SUPER EX GIRLFRIEND, starring Uma Thurman for about four weeks now. It’s always offered as a “choice” prize for the jokes round.

The prizes offered against it have been : other movies, scratch-cards and pies and every single time the jokes prize winner, whoever it is, ignores this work (also starring Luke Wilson) and plumps for the alternative.

“No one wants it. If you do – just come to the quiz and ask for it. I am now happy to simply give it to anyone who asks. Its a bout a girlfriend (Uma Thurman) who has super powers but is emotionally needy. I never watched it but my wife did and she said it “wasn’t very good”.

What Do Prizes Make? Points!

The latest astonishing offer at the Dr Paul pub quiz is this:

BRING ME UNWANTED GIFTS TO GIVE AWAY IN THE JOKES ROUND AND I WILL GIVE YOU POINTS.

Tariff of points-for-gifts:

  1. Give-away-able gift: 1 point
  2. Really brilliant gift: 2 points
  3. Mind-warp awesome gift: 3 points

Paul from THE NEPHRONS was the first to take advantage of the offer at last night’s Newsroom super quiz. The Spiderman Socks earned as 2 points on the scale.

Unfortunately the bonus points weren’t enoguh and the Nephrons finished thrid or fourth or something. But the bird who ended up winning the socks (for the Mister Sheen joke) was delighted!

Rule: one gift per team per quiz.

Improv Tickets Crop Up As Extra Prize

Thanks to Lauren from To Be Continued who was in the Reverie on Monday for the quiz and managed to supply a bonus prize of 4 x tickets for her improvised comedy troupe’s show at the Pleasance this Thursday night (23rd Sep 2010).

I gave them away as an extra prize in the jokes round and I can’t remember but it may well have been the George Michael joke which won.

Anyway, go and see these improv people. I have seen Lauren in action and she is very good, she’s the blonde with her tongue out.

Also, I saw the chap with the beard once and he was very funny also, despite my previous prejudice that improvised comedy is shite.

So go and see them. Probably very good.
