What was the least common calendar day for a wedding in Australia in 2019?
The first new player to comment on the website with the correct answer wins a free drink at their next iQ Trivia show.
Recently one of our teams answered that the lead singer of the Supremes was Bob Ross.
Which inspired this badly photoshopped rendition of Bob Ross and the Supremes.
It also inspired our team name theme for this week.
We want you to change one name out of a famous group or pairing.
Woody Allen and Buzz Lightyear
Florence Nightingale and the Machine
Sherlock Holmes and Emma Watson
Any slightly changed group or pair will get you a bonus point.
Have an interesting week.
Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.
If you won, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.
You lot are apparently pretty good at a lot of unusual things.
I can name 17 Roman Emperors
I can tell the difference between butter and I can’t believe it’s not butter
I can play music by ear
I can roll my tongue
Best Procrastinators… will tell you why tomorrow
We come up with the best team names
Drink driving (which we DO NOT endorse)
Winning Trivia (which we DO endorse)
Things we’d like to see in 2021
Radical Pili-Pala (Welsh for butterfly)
We had a guess that the Supremes were led by Bob Ross. That would have been a very different band!
Another team who had chosen Fun With Flags as their special subject racked their brain but couldn’t recall the country that had a flag identical to Haiti’s, so they answered with “oh crap, I looked this up and now I can’t remember!”
One team got too clever. They answered a question about 2001: A Space Odyssey with “David Bowman”, but we asked for the name that was blanked out, which was Dave. Strict, sure. But when it comes to a tie breaker, that can matter.
And we had to break a couple of ties. One came down to the spelling of Patton Oswalt versus Patton Oswald, and one came down to providing the additional information of the last name of Elaine Benes rather than just Elaine. Sometimes it really does get that close.
See you next week.
As a COVID project, one of our hosts took on learning languages.
But not French or German or Japanese or something useful. No. It was Welsh.
Why would someone learn a language that less than a million people speak, pretty much all of whom already speak English? Honestly, part of the reason was so they could usually count on being the best Welsh speaker in the room.
So for your team name this week, we want to know, what are you better at than anyone in the room?
I always get USBs in the slot on the first try.
Which way is north? I can tell you in any situation.
Nobody irons a shirt better than me.
I have a sixth sense when it comes to finding free parking.
Any minor thing you are better at than anyone in the room will get you a bonus point.
Have an interesting week.
