Quirky Quiz Questions

The first monday of the month is quiz night at the local pub - 13 teams turned up - the quizmaster must be pleased with the turnout. Sadly for our team made up of "oldies" we find the film, pop music and TV questions beyond us. In our young day there was no TV - that shows how old we are - our team agreed that "ancient history" questions would suit us fine! We remind ourselves that we must try and win the booby prize - but we fail there as well. On one occasion we would have won the booby prize but I cheated and at half time asked a young innocent bystander who was enjoying a quiet drink at the bar (not generally quiet in our pub during the quiz) to fill in some of the pop music questions. Serve me right as we missed out coming last and would have won highlighter pens!

We all enjoy ourselves thoroughly and have a really good laugh - quizmaster, you better have some really good booby prizes next month - we really will try very hard to come last!

We try and steer clear of quiz's when the youngsters are mixed in with us, and op for the golden oldie quiz at our Senior lunches. We have never won yet, but one of these days....
Mind you with the prizes on offer one does it for the fun really.
Love Granny

I'm like you when it comes to popular music Lindsay. I can never tell the difference between the name of the band and the title of the song! It's good to laugh though. A

Your pub quiz night sounds like fun and something I'd like to try.

It's when they give you a picture quiz and you have to identify soap stars and D-list celebs!

Good fun though. WE haven't done a quiz for ages.
