What Colour Is A 5-Euro Note?

This was the first question at the Safari jackpot round last night.

Options given: Blue, Grey, Red.

What colour is this banknote?

So it’s maybe grey or green and it even looks a bit blue.

I did consider this when I wrote the question and that’s why I left green out of the options.

The reason I kept blue IN the options is because if you look at a twenty: now THAT’S blue.

The twenty: more obviously blue

However I can see the other points of view here, so I decided to call all answers correct for that question.

Everyone still got bust, so there’s a jackpot of £60 next Monday.

Which is like a MILLION Euros, roughly.

Monday 1st July

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: Myanmar (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Eddy Grant(music round)

Monday shoots out of the monthly cannon like a burst-ball grapeshot of devastation and quiz questions and fire.

Happy July!

Here’s the music round cheat for the Safari tonight:

Eddy, King of Rafts.

It’s Eddy Grant. This was a hit when I was a kid and I loved his video – loved the whole raft thing. It made me want a raft. I’ve been of rafts since then and they pretty much lived up to expectations.

Rafts are cool.

I’d rather have a raft than a Tory government.

But you take what you can get. Sometimes rafts just aren’t available.

If you win £80 (over the two quizzes) tonight you could probably buy stuff to make a decent raft. You could sail down the Water of Leith. The chances of dying are slim. There’s a weir just after Saint Mark’s park but I don’t think it’s too serious. You could portage.

I reckon if you get in the river just below the massive big waterfall thing near Dean Bridge, you could get all the way down to the docks.

Does anyone know anyone who’s tried it? Comments below pls!

Word.

See ya later – x

MONDAY 25TH FEB 2019 – MONDAY QUIZZES

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Samurai Jack (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Fine Young Cannibals (music round)

Monday has appeared like a creepy ghost of last week. And just like last week there are two quizzes tonight but that’s the last time that will happen as young quizmaster Joshua will be starting at the Saint Andrews Brewing Company as from next Monday.

Joshua is a hip young quizmaster with many questions and answers ahead of him. you’ll like him!

Meanwhile, here is the cheat music for tonight’s quiz at the Safari. It’s 80s super-legends the Fine Young Cannibals .

Well – I call them super-legends, but I don’t think The Fine Young Cannibals had a huge amount of hits.

They just showed up, defined mid-80s UK pop and then fucked off again before becoming tired, worn-out and irrelevant, unlike, arguably, The Pet Shop Boys.

In fact, looking up their discography I discover that they had 5 x Top Ten hits and lasted for about five years. These are the right numbers for a pop band.

So that’s the way the biscuit breaks this fine Monday morning. Get out there and be the best human you can be. Yes. Inspirational. Truly.

Yo,

Dr Paul

Mon 10th December – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Twickenham (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Katy B (music round)

Monday smells and it smells like victory.

Come to the quiz.

Now, here’s the reward for reading this post:  a free answer for tonight’s music round at the Safari Lounge.

I haven’t listened more than once or twice but I think there’s not much lyrical content: I think it’s about going out and getting wasted.

Music in it is excellent though, even though it is “very modern” in my book.

Not that modern, however, it you iz youtz.

The youtube comments are full of young people saying things like  “whooooooooaaaa – I can’t believe this is five years old”. and “I feel so old” and “music isn’t like this anymore”.

Fuck off kids, I’m old enough to remember Mike Read banning ‘Relax’ while simultaneously giving Bruno Brookes a rather hypocritical reach-around and calling Matt Bianco wankers, live on Swap Shop.

That’s real nostalgia.

Mon 29th October 2018 – Monday Night Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Adriano Celentano (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Happy Feet (music round)

Last week at the Safari we discovered that an average Emperor Penguin stands at 3’9″*. This week we feature penguins in the picture round. What is going on. Some sinister penguin takeover? Stay tuned.

Here’s the music round free answer, it applies to the Brass Monkey Leith and it is a gloriously made-up piece of 1970s lingual nonsense from Italy’s master of entertainment, Adriano Celentano:

You’ve probably seen this before.

Celentano wrote a song to show how he thought Western (English language) pop music sounded to Italian ears.

It’s proper gibberish but various people have tried to fit it to English words. Here’s one example.

Anyway: vegans, trans, gay, straight, tall, dwarf, multi-ethnic, ginger people, penguins, bus drivers and billionaires, you’re all welcome to the quiz tonight. Let there be no walls.

August In Edinburgh. It’s Hell Get Me Out Of Here… Or Is It?

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Bad Company (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Beastie Boys (pic round)

It’s hitting week three of the Fringe and everyone has had enough. Edinburgh is a nightmare. You can’t GET anywhere. You can’t get served anywhere without an enormous queue.

Well, not exactly.

Of course, the simple solution is that all you have to do is step OUTSIDE the city centre.

I knew a woman from Down South who once had a fringe show on Broughton Street, very near the Cask & Barrel, or whatever that big boozer is called (on the corner of London Street). I remarked that it was a good venue, city centre and she looked at me like I was mad.

As far as she was concerned, Broughton Street could have been the moon. She said NO ONE would come to her show – it was too far away.

So that’s the festival mentality: If it’s not EH1 then it can get tae fuck.

The upside of this is that the city remains relatively calm outside the bubble o’madness. So get yourself to Leith, get yourself to Abbeyhill if you need a break from the city centre crazies.

Come and do the quiz. And win things. And be happy.

Here’s tonight’s music round cheat which applies to the early quiz at Brass Monkey Leith:

Best youtube comment for this comes from someone called Kevin:

“Came for the song, stayed for the chest hair. Not gay.”

Tonight’s quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith concludes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)
