With a host of teams turning up, it was up to me to try and instigate some sort of control of what has clearly turned out to be the venue to be on a Sunday night. In Milngavie. At 8:00pm. Called the Beefeater.
Lesley Chow took down the quiz overall with some clever play in the Negatively Marked Final Round answering just 4 questions, but tanking them all.
Very nice work lads.
Gary came up to try my horn (more on that later...) and did so with consummate ease. That left him with The Beast's Question to answer a question for a pretty healthy jackpot of over £100, but he failed and looked liked a proper Country, as that's what the question was on.
Lesley Chow also won the Fun Round with...
I was seeing a cross-eyed girl but ended up dumping her. The bitch was seeing other people.
It was The Maryhillbillies won the coveted Round of Applause, an award given only to the team that finishes in last place, and they seemed pretty chuffed that they won something at least.
Right... The Great Horn Debacle! One team, namely The Snatch Pirates, took umbrage to the fact that I
- Gave Gary from Lesley Chow a trial toot on the horn once he agreed he was doing that over the cairds
- Only asked him to blow said horn for 10 seconds
They argued that Sir James "Lord of the Quiz" never allows a practice and would ask for a blowing time of at least 15 seconds.
To The Snatch Pirates I say this, "Do I look like a small, bald Englishman?" I think you'll find I don't, which means I can do things a little differently.
I will look to change the blowing time to 15 seconds in future though. It's not like I'm Kim Jong-il or anything. I'm taller and my birth was heralded by the appearance of a triple rainbow across the sky over the mountain and two new stars in the heavens.
More money added to the jackpot next week and Sir James will have returned by then.
He'll see you next Sunday at 8 o'clock.
