On the crest of a magnificent wave of love and respect, the Original Honeymonster, Captain Stu, sailed into the West Highland Gate to take the Quiz helm in Sir James's absence. Rumours that our favourite sequined Quizmaster is hiding out in Ireland until Operation Yewtree blows over have been greatly exaggerated, apparently he's just over there stocking up on cheap glittery leprechaun based bedlinens! Sparkly! A packed house battled it out for the top prize of ten whole cans of cider...must be lean times for the beefy! Universally challenged proved anything despite appearances, as they whipped each round into submission and took a choke-hold of the quiz in the early stages. The Pirates of the Echoie Minge manged perhaps the worst opening round that the beefy has ever seen, leaving them trailing even the Two Pints team, that consisted of just Sandy (Still, at least the collective IQ of the team was higher than most weeks!). Captain Stu's bonus speed round went down well as the pirates made up for their start by naming 10 Monsters, from Savile to Dracula, in the quickest time! They even managed to chuck HONEYMONSTER in there! Booo! The Jokes round was as filthy as ever and it was Burnbrae's Lyn is Going to Berlin, who were dirtiest of them all. I emptied my sack of cack all over them, and they loved it! Especially the biscuits! Special mention goes out to the Numpties sister team the Numpties too, who insisted on reading out their own joke, which was spectacularly shot down by Milngavie's Kim Jong Il, or Glen as he prefers. The final round was quickfire to get it up googlewhackers and it saw team Steven AKA The Honeymonsters snatch a surprise win! Tequilla Mockingbird, the only team not to have heard of Coolio's Gangster's Paradise received the dreaded wooded spoon, finishing in last place.The cards weren't kind to the Honeyz so it was left to the Pirates to face the BEAST! Rolf Harris's wingman, had a question about cameras that seemed fiendishly difficult. The Pirates refused to blink though and won the £130! Flash Bastards! Till next time...
