Thursday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Jessica Simpson (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Pulp (music round)

NOTE: We are UPSTAIRS tonight at the Argyle Bar (i.e. the ground floor instead of the cellar)

Hey. If you’re a visitor to the city then welcome. I hope you’re having a great time.

Just do us a favour and don’t be a prick.

Also, make sure you check out local culture as well as the “Fringe”. In other words, come to the quiz tonight. Unlike all that Fringe pish, you can actually win some money.

For reading this post you get a wee bonus which is a cheat answer for tonight (see top info). The music round clue tonight is Pulp. The song sounds like this:

The video includes the technique of little kids playing young versions of the band members.

Innovative huh? Well yeah, but of course Queen had done it nine years earlier with ‘The Miracle’

Sheer quality.

Anyway, don’t bring kids to the quiz tonight. Leave them at home, get a babysitter. Get pished. Start a fight.

Yeah. Also, remember to stop me and buy a packet of Cunto Cards  if you’re looking for that special gift for the foul-mouthed fiend in your life.

This Is How We Feel About The Queen

Last week Britain was temporarily interested in the monarchy as #longestreign became a Twitter hashtag and Elizabeth celebrated coming out from the correct fanny and then having an appropriate vacancy open up through abdication and death, meaning that she has become the de facto head of a particular country of about 60 million people for longer than anyone else has been de facto head of that particular country. Hoo fucking rah.

Anyway, to “celebrate” I asked teams to make a portrait of the Queen. Here are some of the results:

QUEEN PORTRAIT B SHARPSI liked this a lot. It looks exactly like Mutha Bacon out of Biffa Bacon out of Viz.

QUEEN PORTRAIT BEARDY MANI kind of ignored this at the time but now I’m thinking it should have won. It’s like the Elephant Man has been flattened by a milk float. It would make a great stamp.

 

QUEEN PORTRAIT JACKIE CHANThis was one of the “proper drawing” efforts. Aye not bad.

 

QUEEN PORTRAIT MATT THE CATA dark image from a dark mind

QUEEN PORTRAIT THREE SISTERSAnother “proper drawing” effort but this one has more charm, I would say.

QUEEN PORTRAIT UNKNOWNThe Queen is a dog.

QUEEN PORTRAITVery accurate

 

QUEEN PORTRIATShocking deathbed scene lays waste to any meaning Prince Charles may have enjoyed during his life.

 

QUEEN TEAM CLAIREThis came from a foreign team. I guess this is how they see her abroad… kind of like a lady version of Harold Bishop.

Monday Monday. Like a Sexy Ghost Snake.

Monday slithers right inside your throat like a doppel-snake, before you even wake up. And now we’re here. That’s how it works.

Tonight I offer £60 at the Brass Monkey Leith at 7pm. Cheat news: the music round contains QUEEN.

I can also give you a sneaky late night £20 but other pleasures included at The Reverie 9pm. Cheat news: SUDAN is an unexpected answer in the list round.

Speaking of sexy snakes, the Queen song in the Monkey music round is the proper album version but every time I hear the song it reminds me that youtube has the Freddy vocal, all by itself and that is something that’s worth four and a bit minutes of your time:
