Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 3 February 2019

We’ve all done it.

You’ve been singing along to a song for years before realising that you’ve been singing the wrong lyrics.

This week we want you to channel that ignorance into your team name.

Take me down to the prairie dog city

There’s a baboon on the right

She was a fax machine, she kept her modem clean

There ain’t no hole in that girl

We don’t need no sex vacation

Anything that is a misheard lyric you’ve sung will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

This Week in iQ Trivia – 2 February 2019

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

WINNERS

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

JACKPOTS

These three answered not one, but TWO questions to take home a jackpot last Tuesday.

TEAM NAMES

If you had your way Australia would have a lot of new big things.

Big Bin Chicken

Big Melanoma

Big Thong

Big Halal Snack Pack

Big Kerry Anne

Big Boner

Big Prime Ministerial Swap

Big Berejiklian Budget Blowout

Big Chungus

Big Squidward

Big Fondue Fountains

Big Fan (a wind farm)

Tipsy Frog Teeth

Silky Eiffel Tower

INTERESTING MOMENTS

Two teams tied for first place, and chose to split the prizes.

When faced with a bonus question and the hint that the person we were looking for was black, one team answered Martin Freeman.

PIC

Because apparently this guy is black.

One of our dilemma questions asked if people would rather lose a had or half of their teeth. We didn’t notice until after we had asked the question that one of our players only had one arm.

Instead of just answering a question on the Battle of Culloden, one team gave us a short essay on the details of the battle. They had really brushed up on the last place subject and wanted to show off their knowledge

When we asked about common words beginning with BRO, an unusually large number of teams went with “brothel”. A rather telling answer perhaps.

We asked a question about Detroit when a player from Detroit was attending just her second show. It seems her whole life had been leading to that moment, and she will be coasting on that answer for a long time.

And when one of our hosts found his microphone wouldn’t work, he managed the entire show on just his unamplified voice.

See you next week.

Interesting Question of the Day – 30 January 2019

A newspaper is printed on several sheets of paper and then folded down the middle.  Each sheet of paper therefore contains four pages.

Your newspaper has 28 as the back page, but you notice that a sheet is missing.  One of the missing pages is 8.  What are the other three missing pages?

Interesting Question of the Day – 28 January 2019

Imagine three sealed envelopes.

One contains a cheque for $10, one contains a cheque for $100, and one contains a cheque for $1,000.

Envelope A says: A has more money than B.  Envelope B says: B does not contain $10.  Envelope C says: C has less money than B.  The message on exactly one of the envelopes is a lie.

Where is the $1,000?

Big Negatively Geared Investment Property

Big Revolving Door (of Prime Ministers)

Big Pretentious Hipster

Anything suggesting a new Big Thing for Australia will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

This Week in iQ Trivia – 26 January 2019

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

First of all, we have a new winner of the iQ Trivia Champions League.

And one of this week’s teams tied the record score at an iQ Trivia quiz, with 80 points.

Of course, they used their team name to heap scorn on the music bonus round, and then proceeded to get 5/5 on it.

From now on, if you’re going to slag off one of our bonus rounds, you had better have the good grace to fail at it.

WINNERS

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

JACKPOTS

One team misspelled a region of Italy by a single letter & missed out on the jackpot. We confirmed the spelling, and they were one letter off on the English spelling, and a different letter off on the Italian spelling.

TEAM NAMES

We hope you’re all being good, because your versions of hell would be horrible.

Being stuck on an endless escalator with everyone standing on the right

Adam Sandler movies on an eternal loop

A never ending team meeting

The Kardashians being there

Sitting in a dentist’s chair in slight discomfort for all eternity

Coming in second at trivia every week

Trivia with only music questions

Not having a pen at trivia

Being in a circumcision room with Edward Scissorhands

A spiky pineapple up the butt

Being a single woman in Braddon during Summernats

Cricket on Channel 7

Endless bus rides with Scott Morrison

Always having popcorn in your teeth

It’s 2018 again

Every morning you go to make a cup of tea & someone has used the last of the milk

Cluster of Fornicating Mountains

Juicy Beard

 

Smelly Cassowary

Sweaty Intestines

Spicy Dolphin

Serendipitous Post Office

INTERESTING MOMENTS

One team vandalised the Wikipedia page of Jonathan Thurston when the homework question asked for his middle name. It didn’t stay vandalised for long though, and everyone came up with the right answer in the end.

When we asked a question on Irish singers, we informed the crowd that Conor the Irishman at the bar was happy to give you the answer if you bought him a drink.

We asked what animal’s name is derived from Latin for hairy cat, and one team went with Platypus, because “plaity” describes a way you can wear your hair, and “puss” means cat.

When we asked one team to choose between two options on a 50/50 question, one player sagely noted “it’s definitely the first one… or the second.”

We allowed an Italian man named Marco to pronounce the names of Italian seasons, as his Italian pronunciation was marginally better than ours.

See you next week.
