INTERESTING MOMENTS

We overheard one player say “well I’ve got one question right, and I’m going to coast on that for the rest of the night.” EXACTLY the correct reaction two questions in.

A team of drunk English tourists came in last place, but not before earning themselves a bonus point for singing John Denver’s “Take Me Home Country Roads.”

When asked for the new Deputy Prime Minister, one team responded with “definitely not Barnaby Joyce” which is technically correct.”

Instead of bone spurs in his heel, one team guessed that Donald Trump was medically ruled of of the draft for Vietnam because his hands were too cartoonishly small to hold a gun.

Doctor Who actor Matt Smith was identified as “that Skynet guy from Terminator Genisys.”

When asked for the author and book a literary quote came from, one team hedged their bets and said JK Rowling’s The Art of War.

A visiting tourist from West Virginia recognised a number of towns and cities as being from his home state, told one of the teams that was playing, who dutifully donated their free beer to him.

And one British team was struggling with some of the Australian content on one of our quizzes, so instead of naming the four most recent Australian Prime Ministers with an H in their surname, we allowed them to give us the last four British Prime Ministers with an H in their name (and then proceeded to look up the answer ourselves.)

See you next week.
