|Anything goes in The Snug, the GD's rebellious little brother. An off-topic den of iniquity for non-football/news related musings.
I'm not talking University Challenge or 15-1 or The Chase
I'm talking more of Pub/Fun quizzes like you may have on holiday
Q: 'What are you said to be full of if you are crapulous'
A: 'An excess of food or drink'
Q: 'What anniversary do you celebrate after 25 years'
Me and a mate were in a pub quiz night years ago next to two ****wits with a team name of The Gooners.
We were marking their paper for the True or False round and discovered they'd put 'don' t know ' for about half the answers the stupid ****ing *****
What was John Cleese original family surname name. (a) Cheese (which it apparently was) (b) cheddar (c) bread or (d) butter. The bloke on the next table said "I can't believe it's not butter"
Apologies, but I'll have to make an exception there, as my favourite is still from the latters "cash builder" round:
Bradley Walsh: What film contained the famous line "You're gonna need a bigger boat"?
Taken from Jeopardy, a US quiz show in the last couple of years, the subject was 'World Cheeses'
Alex Trebek (host) "A famous cheese that has the same name as a gorge?"
"Contestant "What is Edam".
not a quiz
but when i was in the corporate boxes at arsenal the other week a woman looked at her phone and said ' omg did you know barry manilow is gay ? '
i said to her ' you know who else is - that julian clary chap - you would never guess would you '
Q: Name a part of the body beginning with "N"
I was ****ing through the channels the other night and Bullseye was on (honestly)
Jim Bowen "First published in 1988 and spent (however) many weeks on the bestseller list, who wrote A Brief History Of Time?"
Contestant "Isaac Newton".
A friend of mine did a quiz for our football presentation evening. One of the questions,
"I have taken our team picture round the town centre and asked 100 women to pick which team member, management included, they think would be the best in bed. Who did the majority vote for?"
He didn't ask anyone, just made up the answer. It turned out to be the assistant manager who we all absolutely loved. Knows the most about football of nearly anyone I've ever met and is the absolute spitting image of Ned Flanders.
I hope this doesn't come across as racist appologies in advance mods please delete if not appropriate.
I was in the audience during a work pub quiz night back in the 1980's and there was a short break in the final to get a few drinks in before the final round of questions.
A few of us were asking each other 6 marker tough questions to see if we could answer any, just passing the time etc..
A bloke behind me leaned forward and said " I have one for you lot "
"Who was the first black person to fly non stop across the Atlantic Ocean"
We hadn't an idea so we gave up.
He answered " All cock and Brown "

I remember a bloke on RTE radio 2 fm one time doing a phone in quiz.
Larry Gogan had him on his 60 second quiz.
His question to win was: " Where is the Taj Mahal "
The Dublin bloke answered " It's across the road from the Dental Hospital "
They ended up giving him the prize as there actually was a takeaway there
'complete the following saying..'as happy as .......?'
'A pig in *****'
'Yes, I think I can accept that'

Nicky Campbell used to do the 'Number 9' quiz on his Radio 1 show. The contestant had a choice of three categories and had to name nine answers in the category that they picked.
One day, the contestant chose 'French Kings'.
'OK', says Nicky, 'in thirty seconds, name nine French kings'.
'Louis the First, Louis the Second, Louis the Third...'
