This Week in iQ Trivia – 29 July 2017
Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.
If you won this week, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.
These guys knew enough about the medal count of the French Olympic team over history to win $149.
These three knew the sixth most spoken language in the EU, and won $98.
And these two teams knew enough Latin to know about centripetal forces, but only one spelled it correctly.
Here are the evil heroes you came up with.
Cinderella – A golddigger with delusions of grandeur
Barack Obama abandoned the American people when they needed him most
Elon Musk: Killing Australian coal jobs
Lifeguards: Kissing unconscious people
The Tooth Fairy: Starting fights at hockey games
Lassie is a real bitch
Wonder Woman: Knocking off the entire gold bangle range from Lovisa
Cardinal Pell’s Lawyers
Mother Theresa: Sweatshop talent scout
Mother F*cker Theresa
Fred Swallows Foundation
Churchill – Mass murderer or troops
Gandhi: That dickhead who held up traffic
Gandhi: Poster boy for anorexia
Oskar Schindler: The Nazi who rounded up 100s of Jews
The Wiggles: Convincing children to play with hot starches, friends with knives, and dangerous creatures
James Bond: He takes your woman, destroys your town, crashes your cars, and makes terrible puns
And finally… there were those teams that referenced our hosts.
Joe the American who tortures us with inane questions every week.
Bill’s a dick because he never puts the Team Bagpuss team name on This Week in iQ Trivia. (Well you made it this week.)
Canadian interrogates Australians for two hours. (Who ever could THAT be about?)
Wild Ragamuffin (or in this case, Wilde Rags a Muffin)
Deaf Audience (when nobody in the audience suggested anything our annoyed host trolled the audience with this subject, and the audience trolled back.)
When asked a question about the number of players on an indoor football team, asking if the goalkeeper counts as a player. (Of course they bloody do!)
The team that bought a drink for a Korean patron who wasn’t even playing trivia because we asked a question about Korean animal sounds.
The British team who insisted they be allowed to answer with the British Prime Minister instead of the Australian Prime Minister on a history question… and then getting it wrong anyway.
The team that bet Pi points on the gambler’s question, and wound up winning by 0.14159 points.
And the player who lost a bet on a question, and who apparently now needs to get a tattoo. By next week we will know if they’ve followed through.
See you next week for more iQ Trivia.
