Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 18 July 2021

This week we’re going to get petty.

For your team name, we want to know, what are the petty things you do when you’re angry at someone.

Eat my lunch? I’ll dose it with laxitives.

I open a bottle of a condiment when there’s already one open.

I removed one piece of a 2,000 piece jigsaw puzzle.

Removing the labels from all of the tinned food.

I told my husband I can’t wait to find out what he has planned for our special day tomorrow… There’s nothing special about tomorrow.

Any instances of petty revenge will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

When we asked about countries beginning with I, one team put Iran… twice. They must have been very confident on that.

Bjork’s eyes were mistaken for the eyes of “one of the guys from BTS”.

The answer to our find the connection round was silent Ls. One of our hosts pointed out that if you pronounce the L in salmon, you are wrong in this quiz and in life. If you pronounce the L in walk, you can walllllk on out of here.

See you next week.

Interesting Question of the Day – 16 July 2021

In a 2016 legal battle, someone opposed an attempt to trademark a first name, asserting that they were “and international recording artist, humanitarian, and breast cancer survivor”, while the person seeking the trademark was “a secondary reality television personality.” What name were they arguing about?

INTERESTING MOMENTS

We asked for three of the five artists we played in a supercut. A couple of team asked for bonus points if they could name them all. We agreed, with the proviso that if you named more than 3, you had to get all of them right or your would get zero points. One team got the first four, but then mistook Whitney Houston for Celine Dion and that cost them.

At an online corporate show, one team slipped up and posted the answer to a four point question in the chat… and sure enough, literally every team got 4/4.

The most common word beginning with MAC? How about macaron?

First place at one show had to be decided by the fact that one team got the homework question, but spelled one of the answers wrong. It doesn’t matter very often, but if it comes down to it, spelling can be the difference between a win & second place.

See you next week.
