Think of a song you like. Now think of the opposite of that song.

That’s your team name for this week.

Pyongyang Style

Shilling in the name of

We are the losers

I’m utterly indifferent to rock and roll

Lady looks like a dude

I can actually feel my face very well thank you

Give us the opposite of a song title and you will get an easy point.

Have an interesting week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

As we often do, we asked a question about what several people have in common, and said that if your answer wasn’t our answer it had better be both correct and interesting. Naturally, one team answered with the exact words “both correct and interesting”. Ok, you found a loophole. Nobody gets that loophole anymore.

A jackpot question was asking for the name of an Italian author, and four separate teams took a shot at Giuseppe Verdi, Giuseppe Rossi, Giuseppe Ravioli, and Giuseppe Linguini. We’re pretty sure they were just going for the most stereotypically Italian names they could think of.

When we played a song by Big Audio Dynamite, one team responded that the singer used to be in The Clash. We looked it up, and sure enough, Mick Jones sang both for Big Audio Dynamite and The Clash. So saying “that band that had the same lead singer as The Clash” is not technically wrong and got a point. (Though the team that got the point still came last.)

See you next week.

Of course, if you don’t like any of those things, then you’re going to bring down the tone of the room, and we suggest you make room for the cool people.

If you’re the kind of person who has memorised every Melbourne Cup winner, then congratulations. But we’re probably not going to ask about that. This isn’t an exam. Rather than just spitting out facts, you’re probably going to have to do some lateral thinking. We will ask questions that you won’t see coming. We will ask questions you probably won’t know off the top of your head, but you will enjoy arguing the answers with your friends. The IQ in iQ Trivia stands for interesting questions, and that is exactly what we will provide.

As always, we’ve got a homework question to give you an advantage. If you want to be on the e-mail list, just send an e-mail to homework@iqtrivia.com.au with Summer Hill in the subject line and we will add you to our mailing list.

And the Facebook page dedicated to the show will have occasional hints and additional information to help you out.

Book yourselves in for our Inner West trivia in Summer Hill by calling 9798 3264 or contact them on their website.

And we will see you at 7:30pm every Wednesday at the Summer Hill for the absolute best trivia in Sydney.

There are just two countries where you can’t but Coca Cola. What are they?

Surry Hills trivia has found a new home.

And sure enough, it’s one of Sydney’s great trivia spots.

It’s the Dove and Olive, and it’s kicking off every Tuesday at 7pm.

We’ve got interesting trivia, we’ve got great food, we’ve got drinks, and we’ve got great prizes courtesy of the Dove and Olive. In short, we have got everything you need for a great night out.

And if you don’t like any of those things, then you are most likely a creepy weirdo and to be perfectly honest we want nothing to do with you.  (Also, why are you still reading this?  Go away!)

INTERESTING MOMENTS

We asked about annoying sounds, and instead of the answer of “fingernails on a chalkboard” being similar to the sound of a chimpanzee warning call, one said it was “Bill’s voice”. (For the record, we can be WAY more annoying if we need to be.)

A question on ballets with the initials SB resulted in a guess of Spandau Ballet, which is not completely wrong, and Some Bullsh!t, which is.

A question on Dutch geography on our international quiz was seized on by a team that had players playing in the Netherlands at 4:00am. They got it right, and won by a single point. Yes, it pays to have Dutch people on your team sometimes.

See you next week.
