Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 15 September 2019

Recently we found out that one of our teams has a group chat on Facebook, which they have dubbed “Those Pesky Jews”.

It sounds dicey, but it’s ok because they’re all Jewish.

So this week we are looking for team names that you can get away with, but others can’t.

Whatever groups you happen to be a part of, surely there’s something you can say that others can’t.

NOTE: Our hosts reading out your team name does not imply that they or iQ Trivia endorse your team name. They’re just reading them out.

Have an interesting week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

When faced with a dilemma question on whether they’d be especially intelligent or especially good looking, one team made a point of “checking out” all of the other teams in an attempt to assess how serious they were about their appearance. (For the record, the room was unanimously in favour of being intelligent.)

We asked about letters that are not in the names of Australian states and territories, and a group in Canberra went with P, despite the face that they were IN the Australian Capital Territory and really should have known better.

We were all set to play a clip of Shut Up and Drive by Rihanna, when Shut Up and Drive by Rihanna started playing over the background music. So we swapped question 8 with question 18 and acted like that was the plan all along.

And one team came up to us just before we started reading out the answers to round two, because they wanted to change their answer to the gambler’s question. They went ahead and changed it from the right answer to a wrong answer, and that cost them a share of first place.

For the record… we have no qualms about letting you talk yourself out of a right answer.

And when we were short of a host because of a sudden illness and feared we might have to cancel a show, Blythe came through and made sure our long streak of never cancelling a show remained intact. And they players thought she did great.

See you next week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

Someone from Croatia got a question on Croatia wrong, and cost their team a jackpot win.

The symbol in the centre of the Korean flag was described by teams as “a Tamagotchi”, and “the Pepsi logo”.

And not one, but TWO teams mistook this 1931 wedding photo for Prince Philip, with his son Prince Charles as the best man.

First of all, this predates Charles birth by nearly two decades, and second of all, it’s obviously Goebbels with Hitler as the best man. Whatever your views on the monarchy are, surely mistaking the heir to the throne for a megalomaniac, anti-Semite, and five time winner of the All Germany Stupid Moustache Competition misses the mark.

See you next week.

Interesting Question of the Day – 6 September 2019

On Monday we found out that you can’t drive from New York to Rio.

When taking the longest possible drive on Earth, what countries would you start & finish in?

The rules are you can’t take ferries, and you must take the shortest possible distance (so no detours or circling roundabouts infinite times.)
