Wednesday 5th Dec – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Myanmar (pic round)

It’s midweek in December, the month that’s dominated by Christmas. All I’m saying about Christmas is don’t miss out on Cunto Cards – the only gift that’s guaranteed to raise a laugh this year

Cunto Cards
Cunto Cards. Utterly hilarious. Twelve pounds.

Anyway, Cunto is just the sideline. The main business here is pub quiz and tonight we have NICE QUIZ for you.

Here’s the tune that’s my free answer for the music round at the Joker tonight. It’s eighties Scousers, OMD:

I always thought the singer out of OMD looked like John Collins who used to play for Hibs and Celtic.

Whaddya reckon?

I hope you like that. It took over ten minutes.

Anyway, come to the quiz and we’ll all live happily ever after.

Yo,

Wed 21st Nov – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes tonight: Best jackpot of the week is tonight at the Joker

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £180. Cheat: Fleetwood Mac (music round)

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

Here’s the song which is in tonight’s music round at the Joker. This inside knowledge is the wee bonus you get for looking at the website or reading the email.

If you ever listen to Johnny Walker’s Sound of The Seventies on BBC Radio 2 then you’ll know this song because he appears to have a contract which includes a direct order to play something off of the Rumours album every single week until he dies.

The other thing he always always always plays is ‘Year of The Cat‘ by Al Stewart and I just hate that song.

It’s frustrating. The 70s contains some of my favourite music but Johnny Walker’s Sound of The Seventies on BBC Radio 2 mines from only the narrowest seam of easy-going white-man rock.

Nothing wrong with a bit of easy-going white-man rock but the show needs some flavour mixed in. I can’t listen to it.

Here’s a picture of Johnny Walker who hosts Johnny Walker’s Sound of The Seventies on BBC Radio 2:

Image result for johnnie walker bbc radio 2

And I can’t stand his voice. That’s another red line.

Anyway – none of this is relevant. The only thing that matters is COME TO THE QUIZ.

Yo,

Wednesday Is The Mighty Eagle

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

If days of the week are characterised by animals then surely Wednesday is the magnificent Eagle, with its wings spread wide and casting a shadow of its greatness across all the other days of the week, from its powerful position in the centre.

Whaddya reckon? Maybe Monday is a clever mouse? Perhaps Saturday is a big stupid lion. Who knows.

Anyway: here’s the music clue for tonight’s quiz at the Brass Monkey. It’s a composition by your old pal Dimitri Shostakovich

Tune! And some nice dancing to go with it. Young love.

Anyway – there’s not much more to be said cos its 1027 and that means Popmaster with Ken Bruce starts in three minutes and I want this posted before I go and get another impressive score just by standing in my kitchen and barking answers at the tranny.

I often get 27 or 30. How’s YOUR popmaster form these days?

######################

Here’s the advertorial.

I sell my utterly hilarious Cunto Cards in case you didn’t know.

You can always buy a deck from me tonight at the quiz and they are also available online.

If you want to try before you buy, the Joker and The Thief AND Brass Monkey on Drummond Street both have packs behind the bar you can borrow.

You can also follow Cunto Twitter for daily anti-cunto action.

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.

Also, if you’re still lacking, Cunto cards ,, you can get a deck off of me tonight. I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

You can also get them online

Wednesday – Only One Wednesday Quiz Per Week During August

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

So last week was a disaster at the Joker – with minute to go before quiz time, the electricity blew up and the pub was snookered.

The power is back on and you will now hear last week’s intended quiz, tonight!

The music round hint for tonight is one of my all time favourite bands: Roxy Music. The sound on this video is shite, but it’s still a great song:

You cannae beat the Roxy.

Meanwhile, Cunto cards continue to fly. If you want a packet of the game that’s rocking the nation, hit me up – I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

You can also get them online

Look at the happy people playing Cunto at the Joker the other week. Yeah:

Wednesday – Only One Quiz During August

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

So it’s August, that means the World Festival of Fuckwits and Carnival of Bastards is in town and it means that life at the Brass Monkey becomes too chaotic to include the quiz. So we wait unti September…

All other quizzes continue as normal during the great annual disruption, including the fantastic quiz at the Joker & The Thief which really actually is the best pub in the world.

The music round hint for tonight is one of my all time favourite bands: Roxy Music. The sound on this video is shite, but it’s still a great song:

Dead Pool is over for the month. I will post the list of everyone’s choices later today…

Meanwhile, Cunto cards continue to fly. If you want a packet of the game that’s rocking the nation, hit me up – I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

Wednesday Delight – Evening Pub Quizzes for Your Delight

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: James Franco (pic round)

Tonight sees the final quiz at Brass Monkey Drummond Street until September. The Monkey is situated right in the heart of the festival maelstrom and it means the bar is too transient to achieve quiz during August. Come along tonight to win the cash: £90

All other quizzes continue as normal during the great annual disruption.

Tonight’s music round cheat bonus at the Joker & The Thief is Ashanti and she sounds like this:

Everyone is falling out with each other in the video. It’s like one giant bad mood.

High production values though, like a movie…

Dead Pool resumes tonight, taking entries for August droppers…

Meanwhile, Cunto cards continue to fly. If you want a packet of the game that’s rocking the nation, hit me up – I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

Wednesday Pub Quiz – Crying Gets You Nowhere

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: No Doubt (music round)

This time last week, England could still win the world cup. Today all we have is pub quiz team names like this:

Gareth Southgate's Tear Stained Waistcoat
Gareth Southgate’s Tear Stained Waistcoat

Crying gets you nowhere.

This also applies to protest. Last weekend’s anti-Trump stuff may have been amusing in a rattle-your-jewellery kind of a way, but it was essentially bleating.

Note to demonstrators – No one will take your protest seriously unless you smash things up. Making puns = zero change.

This has nothing to do with the quiz, it’s just my tuppenceworth.

More related to your chances of quiz success: here is a clip from tonight’s music round at the Brass Monkey Drummond Street:

I’ve heard this so many times that it gets samey, but just watching the video reminds me what a good song it is.

I remember when it came out, it was number one for ninety weeks and everyone was talking about how it was a breakup song between singer Gwen Stefani and the bass player. Pure Fleetwood Mac.

Anyway, world cup is over and No Doubt was the nineties. Come and experience modern times in the pub tonight. With the quiz

And, if you’re looking for the kind of foul-mouthed treat that only a theraputic hit like Cunto Cards can provide, I will have a couple of decks with me tonight. Stop me and buy one…

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.

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