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.
There were plenty of dad jokes.
The rotation of the earth really makes my day.
I just heard a joke about beavers, and it was the best dam joke I’ve ever heard.
Did you hear about the restaurant on the moon? It had great food but no atmosphere.
When is a door not a door? When it’s ajar.
Eat Mop Who (repeat this one out loud a few times)
Hi hungry/depressed/pregnant, I’m dad.
What did the cheese say when it looked in the mirror? Haloumi.
Why did the scarecrow? Because he was outstanding in his field.
How do you make a sausage roll? Push it.
What tree can you fit in your hand? A palm tree.
How much does a hipster weigh? An Instagram.
When we asked for an Italian city, one team went with Mulan. Which was wrong, and is also a Disney film rather than an Italian city.
We asked a bonus question about Don Bradman’s most common test match score, and one player who hadn’t listened to the question ran up to us with 99.4 written down. First of all, that wasn’t his average. Second, we didn’t want his average, but the score he scored most frequently. It took a few minutes for one of his teammates to explain that to him.
Another team correctly identified that Guantanamera was a song from Cuba, but guessed that it was sung in Swedish rather than Spanish. (Or at least wrote down Swedish rather than Spanish.)
We asked for an actress who played a variety of films roles including Queen Elizabeth I, Katherine Hepburn, and Galadriel… and one team went with Queen Elizabeth I. Yes, they guessed that a Queen who died over 300 years before Katherine Hepburn was born, played Katherine Hepburn (and also herself) in film. Rather than, say, Cate Blanchett.
And one British couple on holiday liked our Monday show so much, that they came back to two more shows, finally winning on their third attempt on Thursday courtesy of some help from their family.
They REALLY got into our trivia.
See you next week.
