INTERESTING MOMENTS

When we asked about a single use object being sold on countless online sales sites in Australia, instead of giving us plastic supermarket bags, some teams went with German World Cup tops, condoms, and Thai soccer strips.

When someone thought the first of one of our special subject questions on Abba was too easy they complained. When we asked the second, their opponents got it right, but they didn’t. (DO NOT ask us to make things tougher unless you’re going to bring it!)

The Irish currency before the Euro was “the Potato” according to one of our teams.

In response to a question about what happened to two Edvard Munch paintings, one team recounted the entire plot of the film Bean, with Rowan Atkinson accidentally destroying them and replacing them with gift shop posters.

And when we asked a special subject question on the first German Field Marshal to surrender in WWII, one team didn’t know his name, but they did know the story about Hitler making him a Field Marshal as a way of pressuring him to commit suicide rather than surrender, and that’s actually more interesting than knowing the answer to the question we asked.

See you next week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

The last place subject at the Eastern went from Sex Toys last week, to The Bible this week.

In a lightning round, a team of doctors got a question on cancer wrong, and more than one person struggled with what thing, beginning with S, is typically in the form of a red octagon.

When we asked if bleach, coffee, and urine were more or less acidic than human blood, one team asked if we meant separately or all mixed together. For the record if you’re making coffee with bleach & urine, you’re making coffee wrong.

Another team guessed that Napoleon was born in the 11th century. Because apparently he was a vampire or a Highlander.

We had a team answer that the main female character in The Bourne Identity was “that chick from Run Lola Run”, which is technically not wrong.

Another team thought that during WWI, Australian soldiers fought in Vietnam.

A lesbian in a bar was sorely disappointed that she didn’t get a bonus question about a TV series from a list of unnamed characters, one of which was Lesbian in Bar.

We had to explain that when it comes to languages within the Jewish community, there is Hebrew & Yiddish, but there is no language called “Jew Talk”.

And when we asked about the countries that border Croatia, a Croatian player insisted that Croatia borders Italy by sea. Thanks for helping us improve the accuracy of our quizzes random Croatian guy!

See you next week.
