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.

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

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

Yo!

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.

Not their best song, likes.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Scene In Funky Bonnie Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: George Michael (pic round)

It’s Eurovision week, so I can hardly think about the quizzes properly due to the proper Eurovision excitement.

Did you see the first semi-final last night? Fucking magic.

Anyway, Here’s the music round cheat info for the quiz at the Joker tonight: it’s a dance music song with a fairly standard dance music video. But the video DOES include a lauderette so ye cannae beat that.

I wonder if there’s a playlist anywhere on youtube that just has pop music videos which include a lauderette as a location?

Maybe.

It’s 2018 and things are reaching that point where if you can think of it then it already exists, thanks to old father internet.

 

When was the last time you disco danced in a launderette? For me, the answer would be “the early 90s”.

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Wednesday Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

Big jackpot got won last week at the Joker by the SPECKIES, so well done to them and it means that our biggest jackpot tonight is at the Monkey. Ninety pounds on offer.

Here’s the cheat tip for the Monkey, it’s some rotten old pop garage thing from 2000. You don’t hear stuff like this very much these days except in Dr Paul Quiz music rounds

Meanwhile, I listed the May dead pool entries this morning. Have a look at the post for more detail, but basically all the smart money has moved onto George Bush Sr. (the older, less dippit of the Bush prez duo)

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

Another two rollovers last Wednesday so tonight’s pots are over a hundred quid each and getting bulbuous and exciting like something organic and bursty.

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey quiz. It’s Jethro Tull, the band that named themselves after the man who invented the seed drill.

The video’s a bit ropey, but.

Meanwhile, here’s what people look like when they win the quiz. Clock the satisfaction:
