Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 19 September 2021

This week we are tinkering with sports.

With your team name, we want you to propose a change to a sport that would either improve it or make it worse.

Rugby with multiple balls

Cover the basketball in grease

Instead of penalties, decide soccer matches with rock, paper, scissors

Jockeys have to catch their horse first before starting the race

Golf now has a clock, and the fastest time wins

Any proposed changes to sport will get a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

TEAM NAMES

Updated song lyrics? You came through.

Tell me more, tell me more, did you ask for affirmative consent

Dancing Queen Young and Sweet only Seven-ty

Backstreet’s back pain, not alright

Ubers on the storm

Cold Potato Cold Potato

Where did you come from, where did you go, where are my teeth

Slower, sh!t-er, softer, weaker…

It’s the end of the world and we know it

Like a Virgin – Not touched in lockdown

Starships were meant to cry

Livin’ La Vida Lockdown

Don’t dream it’s COVID

It’s the final lockdown

Chopped a line from here to COVID

Wake Me Up When Lockdown Ends

These are the voyages of Fortress Australia, and its five year mission to isolate from other worlds

He was a sk8er boi, she said stay 1.5m away

Stop right now thank you very much, I need somebody with a human touch

One thing I can tell you is you got to be free. Come together – In the park for a maximum of 2 hours and wearing masks when not eating or drinking.

She left me dildos by the stairs, surprises let me know she cares

Why does my fart feel so bad?

Device Device Baby

The Kids Still Ain’t Right

Fear the Reaper

Do you believe in love after love? No.

Oops I Hit It Again

Hit me daddy one more time

Girls just wanna have fundamental rights

Smells Like Middle-Aged Spirit

If you want to be my lover, you gotta get on Tinder

We can nap if you want to

Ground control to Elon Musk

TriviArt

SAS Cheese

Duck Pussy

Snoopy Passport

INTERESTING MOMENTS

On a “show your work” math question, once again, we got a team get every element of the question right, and then say that 6 * 2 + 3 – 5 = 8.

Two teams fell for one of our fake answers and said that the Funeral March was composed by Champignon (which is French for mushroom).

The Oscar Wilde quote “we’re all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars” was, according to one team, from High School Musical.

See you next week.

Interesting Question of the Day – 14 September 2021

In a 2006 survey, were owners of overweight cats more or less likely to agree with the following statements compared to average cat owners?

My cat deserves as much respect as humans.

I play with my cat.

I can talk to my cat about my family.

I am female.

The first new player to comment on the website with the correct answer wins a free drink at their next iQ Trivia show.

Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 12 September 2021

Think back a few years to the songs you sang along to when you were younger.

Now update the lyrics, and make that your team name this week.

Sweet grandchild of mine

It was a bittersweet symphony… now it’s just bitter

Is there life on Mars? No. The Curiosity Rover proved that.

Any updated song lyrics will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

This Week in iQ Trivia – 11 September 2021

Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.

WINNERS

If you won, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.

TEAM NAMES

What are you afraid of?

The absurdity of existence

Being sucked into a ceiling fan. Thanks Willy Wonka

The unstoppable marching of time, slowly leading us all to an inevitable death

Cookie Monster

The Kool-Aid guy

Falling through the cracks on a pier

Being in a plane crash, surviving, and then being eaten by a shark

Swinging into space

Spiders in my ears

Flying monkeys

Butterflies

The night crocodiles in the snow pea plants will eat me

Pelicans

Quicksand everywhere

Granddad’s eye coming out when he took off his glasses

Too many women finding me sexually attractive

Disappointing our parents

The Phantom of the Opera soundtrack

The Mulligrubs lady

Clowns who hate being clowns

Mascots, because you never know who’s in there

Ronald McDonald

The Hamburgler

Headless mannequins

I didn’t play hide and seek, because I thought I would never be found

The sound a broom makes

TriviArt

Moist Fathers Day TriviArt

Secretive Treadmill

Conservative Birthday

INTERESTING MOMENTS

One of our teams said with their team name that they were afraid of Ronald McDonald… and then we asked this picture question about an early version of Ronald McDonald.

A number of teams thought this picture was from Forrest Gump.

Which would have been a VERY different movie.

One team knew a disturbing amount about how to survive a grenade blast.

The title of one of Barry White’s songs was given as “I want to f*ck you all night”, which, to be fair, is the gist of most Barry White songs.

See you next week.
