This Week in iQ Trivia – 18 August 2018

Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.

WINNERS

If you won this week, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.

JACKPOTS

This team had two people from Cyprus, and lucked out when our jackpot question was on alcohol… from Cyprus.

TEAM NAMES

You were very good at coming up with ineffectual pick up lines.

Words can’t describe your beauty. Numbers can. 2/10.

Are you from Tennessee? Because you’re a 3/10.

Have you got a pen? Because you should probably get back to it before the farmer notices you’re missing.

Do you come here often? Because you shouldn’t.

Do you like STIs? And I’m not talking about the car.

Nice shoes. Do they come in women’s sizes?

So do you like… stuff?

You remind me of my mother.

You’re invited to my pants party.

You must have fallen from heaven. You’ve got blood all over your face.

You must have jumped out of hell.

I have chlamydia.

Hey baby, you look like garbage. I’d love to take you out.

Your teeth are like stars. They come out at night.

Whoa! You look like I need a drink.

You smell better when you’re awake.

You could be a part time model.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

One team taught one of our hosts that the Friends theme music was originally going to be Shiny Happy People by REM and got a bonus point for their efforts.

When they couldn’t remember the name of the 30 Rock character Jenna Maroney, one team named four other roles played by the same actress.

We asked about the most common countries of birth in the Australian census, and one team forgot to list Australia.

A team came up to us with the answer to a bonus question two minutes after another team had gotten the answer and we had announced it to the whole room.

We asked a question about Canadian Football. We read out the answer & were in the midst of explaining that we would give credit for American football when half the room erupted with angry protests, so we decided if they were going to interrupt us explaining that we were about to give them points, we wouldn’t give them those points after all.

And on two occasions, teams that won prizes left before the results were announced, and others got the prizes by default. IT PAYS TO STAY RIGHT TO THE END PEOPLE!

See you next week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

One of our players nearly had a heart attack out of delight when we asked a bonus question about a brand of beer that was coincidentally also the name of her son.

When we asked about Barbra Streisand lyrics, one team told us that people who need people “are not tainted by the depressing reality of our petty existence.”

A team of SBS employees took a disturbingly long time to remember that Lee Lin Chin had retired.

Muhammad Ali & Sonny Liston were described as Muhammad Ali & Black Rocky.

After being the only team missing out on a point with the dilemma question, two friends proceeded to yell at each other throughout the rest of the answers. We’re not sure if they are still friends.

Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 5 August 2018

We came across this article on over the top requests made by performing artists before they would go on stage.

Van Halen demanded M&Ms with all the brown ones removed. Madonna wanted a brand new toilet seat. Kanye wanted a slushie machine filled with Hennessy & Coke.

This week, for your team name, we want you to tell us what outlandish demands you would make before going on stage.

A team of people dropping rose petals in my path.

A separate dressing room for my dog.

A bottle of whiskey in a vodka bottle, and a bottle of vodka in a whiskey bottle.

A one bedroom unit within 10km of the CBD.  (Perhaps the most lavish request imaginable.)

Anything that is a ridiculously over the top or specific request will get a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.
