Wednesday Quiz Action In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight: Come out and play.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Beech (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Tenpole Tudor (music round)

Wednesday is the best. You know it’s true. Oh yeah.

Anyway: here’s the music clue for tonight’s quiz at the Joker & The Thief. It is silly punky pop by the bloke who ended up doing the Crystal Maze after Richard O’Brien

The song stirs emotions. On the youtube comments people say things like:

“This should be the national anthem for England… If England was still England”.

Half of the comments mention Brexit and how terrific things are going to be once the “nation becomes a nation” again.

Well, probably not – but you never know!

Anyway – Brexit or no Brexit – you can win a total of £150 at tonight’s quizzes. Why go anywhere else?

The Last Wednesday Where There Is Only One Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Jonah Lewie (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Quiz is off during the festival – Jackpot will be £120 when we start back NEXT WEEK

So the good news is that we are restarting the Brass Monkey quiz next week instead of waiting till September.

London will be receiving hundreds of trainloads of narcissistic wankbags this weekend and our city will breathe a sigh of relief like someone being let out of a Saudi jail.

Thanks for the money, now fuck off!

Then it’s just eleven months to go until the next upheavel.

That’s if the planet even lasts that long. I’ve been using Twitter more recently and fifteen minutes on that thing is enough to make you believe that EVERYTHING is irreparably broken.

Everyone is so upset. And yet, it’s compelling.

Twitter for me is summed up by things like the videos I found the other day of of a fur seal doing a Weinstein on a penguins.

Brutal and unrelated as this is, the comments soon turn the horror of nature into the outrage of politics. You can post a picture of a cake, a carrot, a rock or a roll and someone, somewhere will turn it into a blast of pure anger aimed at Corbyn / Trump / Islam / Israel / Tories / Libtards / Cyclists / Motorists / Smokers / Hipsters / SNP / Unionists

Anyway – I digress. What you really want to know is what’s the cheat song tonight?

It’s Jonah Lewie:

Nothing like a seasonal treat.

This Wednesday We Have Together Won’t Last Forever

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Roxy Music (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Quiz is off during the festival – Jackpot will be £120 when we start back in September

Today never lasts forever. In fact- it’s already after #popmaster (but still before lunch).

Mind you, that’s at the time of writing. The moment you read this could be completely different. It could be October the sixth in the year five thousand. Can anything exist then?

Anyway – the future of civilization isn’t one of the topics at the quiz tonight, so you can relax about that.

Let me tell you though, there is a hit super duper song in the music round by Roddy’s favourite band ever, Dire Straits. It sounds like this:

It is believed to be the only pop video in history to feature synchronised swimming and a copy of the Financial Times in the same swimming pool.

Have you seen anything good at the festival? No. That’s cos it’s all a bag of shite. Make sure you come to the quiz instead.

Wednesday Quizzes Only Half Disrupted by England football

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Simple Minds (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Ra (pic round)

The England football team (men’s) have played themselves into a World Cup semi final and it’s on at the same time as the Joker quiz tonight.

For some of you, this won’t matter at all, but for others it’sa big big deal.

If it’s a big big deal then you probably don’t want to come to the quiz. We’ll have it on the tellies but with the sound down and the quiz going ahead.

So if you really need to hear those bigoted, biased commentators then we’re not the pub for you.

As far as everything else, tonight is a normal Wednesday.

Here’s a sneak look at one of the music round answers for the Joker & The Thief tonight:

It’s the Minds, daein’ Minds things. Sexy.

Reading the comments on every single video featuring early Simple Minds is the same. People saying “whoooaaar – they used to be really good before they became stadium shite.”

I can see what they mean but I still liked ‘Ghostdancing‘ when it came out.

Cunto Cards
caaaahhhnts

Also, by the way, Cunto Cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.

No World Cup – Come To The Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Red (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: Lily Allen (music round)

The World Cup is great and everything but it goes on a bit. Thankfully there is a couple of days break so we can get on with our lives in the interim.

And by “get on without lives” I mean – come to the quiz.

£60 and £150 are the prizes tonight. Here’s a sneak look at one of the music round answers for the Brass Monkey (Drummond Street) tonight:

The song is trying hard to be provocative, different and original and controversial but music-wise it’s poor. I’d rather listen to Queen or James Last.

I just read her Wikipedia page to try and find something nice to say about her as balance but to be honest its mainly a litany of minor rows.

Let’s talk about Holland instead.

The correct term is ‘The Netherlands‘ although, in a pub quiz setting, your quizmaster should usually accept ‘Holland‘ as a perfectly acceptable alternative answer.

The point is that he should know what you meant.

This is the case at Dr Paul quiz. If you spell something wrong or get something slightly wrong but I know what you meant, you’ll usually get the points. (See rules)

It is my humble effort not to be a cunt.

Sometimes we all fail.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Action (Edinburgh)

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Ronald Reagan (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: Macklemore (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Joker:

The song is pish, the video is worse.

It looks like it was made by the same people that make those beer adverts where a perfectly constructed cross-section of races all go to a festival and everyone has a great (and yet meaningful) time.

The racial cross-section is always perfectly constructed in this scenario. But the rule is no oldies and no uggos. Everyone comes from a catalogue. With the possible exception of one fat person who is a lot of “fun”.

At the same time as diversity is rigidly ticked-off, stereotypes abound. A proper load of shite.

Anyway, as luck would have it the music round includes neither the turd of a video nor any clip longer than twenty seconds, “so we’re good” as the people in the shit video would undoubtedly say.

By the way: A HUNDRED AND TWENTY QUID AT THE MONKEY TONIGHT. That’s pretty good. I imagine all the stars will be turning up for that: Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, etc.

Tom Hanks and Emma Watson at Dr Paul quiz
Every single time
