Wed Nov 7th 2018 – Wednesday Quizzes Tonight in Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight: come and get your bum warm in our pubs.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Boyzone (music round)

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

Two excellent midweek cash jackpots – should be enough to get you out of the house. Come and join in the fun.

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

Let’s not beat about the bush: Boyzone were pish. They were certainly not as good as Westlife.

The song’s a quality song, but that’s because it’s written by the Bee Gees and the Bee Gees write quality songs.

Behind schedule so I have little else to say except, SEE YOU AT THE QUIZ.

Yo,

Wednesday Quizzes, Edinburgh, 31st Oct

Quizzes tonight: if there are any questions related to Halloween, it’ll be a co-incidence.

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Barry Manilow (music round)

Aye – I’m no that bothered about Halloween although I do have a great idea for a costume for a party I’m going to on Saturday. No idea if I’ll have time to getting round to making it. It’s a washing machine.

Not that my costume choices matter to you.

What’s really important is that tonight’s jackpots are both £90 and also tonight is your last chance to enter the Dead Pool game for November

What you’re dying to know is which Barry Manilow song has made it to the Brass Monkey music round tonight. Well, it’s this one:

There’s a shitty one on youtube which, although better video quality, is thoroughly depressing as Baz is all plastic age-face and, as gives the impression of a tired old performer as he sleep-walks through the song.

But in his day, Manilow was the best.

I saw him at least twice live (it might be three times but I can’t rightly recall). The guy is a showman. Not quite Freddie Mercury, but pretty damn good.

Which reminds me: go and see Bohemian Rhapsody. It is excellent.

And if you’re coming to the quiz tonight, don’t be a fanny. Thanks.

Wednesday Quizzes – 17th Oct 2018

Quizzes tonight: Come out and feel what others feel.

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

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

Pots got won last week, so minimum payout tonight but it’s nights like these that have the cosy atmosphere because there’s not a jackpot large enough to cause a fight or a barney.

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight at the Monkey, it is, perhaps, the funniest rock video of the 80s:

I still think of Twisted Sister and singer Dee Snider whenever I see women in the pub with hair like that.

And the most likely Dr Paul to see hair of this style? The Newsroom on Thursday night. Usually teachers on the piss.

Hey hey hey!

Wednesday Night Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight: Come out and play.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Jermaine Stewart (music round)

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

Nice pot at the Joker tonight – we’ve squeezed over the £100 mark. Come and win it. Come and smell Elm Row. It’s very pleasant.

The music round clue for tonight is for the Joker and it’s this song:

This was a straight-up, for-real, proper, genuine eighties classic. No disco was without this song in 1986. The sound, the groove. Cannae beat it.

Also, the song must be one of the few chart hits in history to reference cherry wine.

Can you even get cherry wine? Actually – you can. I found it in one search on drinksupermarket.com

I’m not going to order any, mind. It looks shite.

Anyway, come to the pub tonight. We have excellent booze at both pubs. See you tonight…

Yo!

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?

Yo!

Wednesday Quiz Time

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Chaka Demus & Pliers (music round)

Hey. Midweek is the stuff. No one knows you’re out. Ready to have a good time. Oh yeah.

Anyway: here’s the music clue for tonight’s quiz at the Joker & The Thief. It is a terrific reggae pop thing which held Britain captivated in its thrall during the summer of ’93.

The song only got to number 3 in the UK Singles Chart despite being far superior to their only no.1 which was a slightly pish cover of ‘Twist & Shout’ by the Beatles.

Who were Chaka Demus and Pliers? They came from Jamaica and I know you’re all dying to know their real names.

Chaka Demus was the DJ and his real name was John Taylor. Pretty standard.

Pliers was the singer and real name was Everton Bonner. Pretty cool.

Yo!

Wednesdays Are Back To Normal: 2 Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

Wahey! All the festival wanks have boarded their over-crowded trains back to the rat-hub and left us once again to enjoy our city, ourselves.

My wife was up town last night for a while and said it was “so beautiful”. She specifically meant that all the tossers had departed.

More great news: Fest-end means that the Brass Monkey Wednesday night quiz is back in action. 9pm tonight on Drummond Street sees the return. Can’t wait. To make the return spicy, there is £120 in the pot already. Nice.

By the way, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s music round at the monkey. It’s Queen:

If you don’t normally watch the clips, this one might be worth your while. the video and audio are exceptionally high quality for 1981. Check it out.

And, if you’re looking for a gift for the arsehole in your life then hit me up for Cunto Cards which you can buy online or I will have a couple of decks with me tonight….

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.

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

Wednesday Was Built For You

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

 

It’s the greatest song ever written and the greatest video ever made. It’s the moment when Rod Stewart single-handedly broke the seventies into small pieces and created what we still call “the eighties.”

The youtube comments on the video seem to be an awful lot to do with Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

One bloke says

"GTA on PS2... best time of my life"

– that’s the entire comment and it has 1400 likes.

Is it me or is that hugely sad? All these people? And playing a computer game was the BEST time of their LIFE?

It’s a cliche, but they NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE.

You can get out the house tonight. At the q uiz. And maybe even out of your mind. If you do, that’s fine. I’m not your dad although, increasingly, I’m old enough to be so.

By the way, I had a bit of downtime but Cunto cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.
