Our venerable quizmaster
So, Clancy’s Pub Quiz is back – this time on Mondays. I am now assured at least one social event a week which doesn’t involve throwing up or getting arrested, provided that people show. It starts at 8, and I mean really starts at 8:30. The Ministry of Vice and Virtue doesn’t want anyone up too late. I’ve included some prior quiz questions, and some questions I would like asked. I should note that this Monday will also be the book launch for our Quizmaster’s new short stories, available through the British Council. Hopefully Osama’s Bush and mebbe Absolute Hell will be there, so if you’re a new team you’re probably going to lose. Sophist may be there, and in real life you can actually punch him for talking shit. I mean, someone bigger could.
These are some normal questions I remember:
1. Who discovered Radium? (Science)
2. I can’t think of any…
3. F1 racing, blah blah blah, I don’t understand
Um, the questions range from News to History to Bullshit British Sports to Movies and Music. It’s like Jeopardy except in teams. Here are some questions I think they should ask…
1. What is Rugby Union?
2. Are Naveen and Jehan a couple, or is it just a Brokeback Mountain kinda thing?
3. What is the drinking age?
This week will be extra special in that it features the launch of Jehan’s new book as well. It is a series of short stories entitled ‘I Put My Noodle in a Poodle’. Quiz will be followed by the official launch, discussion group, and orgy. Starts at 8 o’clock.
