The Time That Dan Saved A Baby From A Burning Bus

As an alternative to the jokes round the other night at the Reverie, I tried a bragging round.

Instruction: write down the best thing you have ever done. Best brag wins a packet of mint Viscount biscuits.

Here’s what was claimed:

  1. I’ve seen Elton John live in Las Vegas (at Caesar’s Palace)
  2. I was born with  this moustache.
  3. I caught crabs off Chelsea Clinton
  4. I saved a baby from a burning bus (a number eight) outside the Reverie and put the fire oot! This is backed up by a video  that a pure radge boy filmed on his tidy phone!
  5. I have my grandfather’s mummified ears in a box at home.
  6. My dad used to own this place.
  7. Dan hada bath with Whitney Houston.
  8. My brother in law won X FActor (Steve Brookstein)
  9. I rode a unicorn

Dan who works at the Reverie was responisble for number 4 above and that  proved to be the winner on the grounds that is heroic and is definitely true.

DAn, hiding behind the evil of the Beast

I  thought the crabs-from-Chelsea-Clinton might stand a chance but the more they were questioned, the more the team responsible appeared to have no back up.

£200! Thundercunt Beast Mastermind

My True-False challenge had rolled  over 9 times at the Reverie, so we had a £200 pot by Monday night.

As promised, the “must-be-won” rules came into play, giving every single team a chance to win at the end.

Thundercunt win two hundred quid
Thundercunt win two hundred quid

And it was THUNDERCUNT who made it through the muck, capping off one of the most succesful fortnights in quiz history with a second win in a row for the main partof the quiz

This meant beating 18 other teams – including one which included a Mastermind player, Brian (who will be on telly this week or next answering questions about the music of the Beatles).

All the other teams had a chance to snatch the cash but Thundercunt’s John (last week’s dance-off hero) held his nerve and the team left with the £200 safe.

Mind you, there’s loads of them in that team. Maybe they got seven quid each or thereabouts (not everyone was available for the photo).

Back to £20 next week. That’s an anticlimax along the lines of the Stone Roses second album. But, like that album it should still be fairly good.

Dance Off Devastation But No Jackpot

A new star was born on the dance-off scene on Monday night as a chap called “John” (pictured, left) down-pointed, bopped and slid his way into the hearts of the Reverie crowd, beating challengers from Flystrike and the Cheeseplant team.

Dance off at Dr Paul Quiz

Well done to John and his team, Thundercunt, who finished the evening as champions. But there was to be no cash glory for anyone as the True or False weaved its secret weirdness once again.

This means a jackpot of £200 next Monday and a promise that the jackpot MUST BE WON. We’ll try it the normal way and then, if no one wins that, we’ll have a shoot out involving everyone for the money. Yeah!

Reverie pot up to £180

Winners at the Reverie were FLY INFESTATION, who came from behind in an exciting finish to nail the booze.

Unfortunately, the true or false questions proved too tricky to master. Here was the killer T/F:

True or False: Bald Eagles can swim?

Answer – of course they can but Neil and Emma both went for False and it was all over. £180 next week. Fucking hell. Expect it to be busy.

Feminists Win The Quiz

Conversation from the start of Monday’s  quiz at Reverie

“Are you the quizmaster?”

“Yes. I certainly am.”

“Well, we’re here for the quiz and we’re in it to win it. I must warn you – we won a feminist quiz the other night.”

And, two hours later whaddya know:

I don’t know if the chap on the end is a proper feminist, or just the kind of ‘feminist’ I used to be in my Uni days, which was handy.

Anyway – the team was called LOS JALEO DE JABLIS which apparently “wild boars of alcohol’ or something like that.

And, as superb as they were, they did not manage to trump the True or False challenge and we now have a rollover up to £160 next week.

E = MC Hammer 2 Are Winners

How do you type the wee “2” that means “squared”? It doesn’t matter. The thing that matters is that E = MC HAMMERED 2 are the champions at Reverie after several months of being nearly brilliant.

E = MC Hammer Squared - champs at last!
E = MC Hammer Squared - champs at last!

It all came together last night and they ended up with the wine although Nicola and the chap from the Canadians ended up peniless from the jackpot round after just one true or false question.

£140 next week.

Google Eyed Lose Dance Off

Dance-Off disaster for GOOGLE EYED who lost a dance off for the first time probably ever.

Google Eyed’s dance legend David was outfoxed by the “slight” style of Scott from the CHEESE PLANT team who finally got the win which has eluded them for so long.

No one really knows why, cos Scott did fuck-all dance-wise and David had loads of great moves. Mystery.

Anyway – it was all to no avail as Scott met Brendan from FLYSTRIKE and both players succesfully negotiatied three true-false questions before falling down on this belter:

True or False: A family from Romania had a child who was so ugly that they made him sleep outside in case he infected the other children?

Would you have guessed. They didn’t and we have a splendid £100 jackpot next week.

My Birthday Quiz

It was my birthday on Monday and that didn’t really kick in until the Reverie.

I got 4 cards (2 points awarded for each card apart from the shitty knocked-together one by the Canadians which got  1 point) but Neil trumped the situation by bringing out a cake and a big card just after round 4. Candles, everything.

This was worth 10 points but still wasn’t enough to win the quiz cos Neil’s team was pretty much derailed by some pissed bird trying to jump his bones.

Meanwhile, the victory went to GOOGLE EYED who defintiely answered most questions correctly but only pipped E=MC HAMMERED by a couple of points after another controversial bonus round.

Again, no one was able to handle 5 true or false questions to win the jackpot and so we have an £80 rollover next week. See you there.
