Team’s Jackpot Chances Destroyed By Missionary Position

My resourceful regular teams are constantly thinking of new ways to lose.

Take Vegetable Zoo who are frequent visitors to the Reverie.

Veg Zoo are fairly American and therefore don’t win the quiz that often as they struggle on the unavoidably British-weighted nature of the quiz.

So, when they have four correct answers in the jackpot round, that’s good going. It’s just a shame that they got mashed on the easiest question of the five:

Q. True or False: the crown of the King of Borneo is a top hat that was stolen from a missionary in the 19th century.

Asking this question depends on images like this popping into people’s heads:

'Would you mind moving your feet about, I don't want the vegetables to catch?'

Of course, the answer is FALSE.

Why is this a bad answer? Well, apart from anything, I don’t think missionaries were particularly well known for their top hats. Also, Borneo isn’t a country on it’s own – it’s a large island split between Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia. And the top hat thing… well.

The closest thing to the King of Borneo would be the Sultan of Brunei (formerly world’s richest man) and he doesn’t really have a crown. The usual hat you see him wearing looks like this:

Would you have got all of these true/falses right? (Answers at bottom).

  1. A rat can longer than a camel without drinking water?
  2. According to an RSPCA list, the poodle is in the top 5 vicious dogs in Britain?
  3. Albatrosses can fly for a week at a time, non-stop?
  4. Albatrosses can fly and sleep simultaneously?
  5. An alligator cannot walk backwards?

Jason buried them all and took the ton but unfortunately I missed snapping  the other half of his quiz team, so you have to make do with the ladies from CUDDLE JACKET who got several extra points during the evening for being ginger, shouting the loudest, and sharing their cigarettes with strangers.

Back to £10 next week. I might bring back the golf for a while.

Answers:

  1. True
  2. True
  3. True
  4. True
  5. True

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.
