Tonight’s quizzes :
6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Boo Boo (pic round)
8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Black Crowes (music round)
By the way – there was a mistake last week in the free answers but I’ve double checked and the above is CORRECT for tonight.
That doesn’t happen very often.
Get your Sunday on
By the way, here’s the audio cheat for tonight which refers to the music round at the Tolbooth:
It’s the Black Crowes!
And I’ve nothing to say about them except that they look really American. That’s not a bad thing – it’s just a true. It’s all the “rock n roll” pose.
When British acts do that – they never look like they really mean it.
Not to say that British acts don’t look rock and roll. Deep Purple, Led Zep – but I’m talking about the pose. The only ones who succesfully pull off a pose are usually ironic or comedic – e.g. Pulp or The Darkness.
Anyway, the other cheat tonight (for the Persevere Picture round) is about Boo Boo bear who is pals with Yogi Bear and lives in Jellystone Park.
“Jellystone.” Ho ho ho ho.
That’s got to be the best pun of all time.
But then, that’s your Americans again. It took me many childhood years to realise that Americans mean jam when they say “jelly”.
And if they want to say jelly they have to say “Jell-o”.
Anyway – I went to American a few times and despite all this madness I didn’t have too much trouble with the language.
