Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 26 June 2022

We’re at the end of Pride Month, so we have just enough time for this week’s team name theme.

We want you to make a movie or TV series gay.

The Lion Queen

The Big Bear Theory

Bi Hard

Ama-gay-us

Pride Green Tomatoes

The Mandalesbian

Cape Queer

Ferris Bueller’s Gay Off

Remember, this is meant to be lighthearted. It’s not meant to be an excuse to throw around a bunch of lazy slurs. And if you can’t think of anything, any film of TV series with “day” in the title gives you a pretty easy option.

Have an interesting week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

We tweaked a picture question of ex-military members who have moved on to new occupations to include one of our hosts. But nobody noticed that the sharp dressed Marine was the guy hosting the quiz they were at.

We asked a question to which the answer was Jonathan Thurston, and gave the hint that he was the same height as our host. Because why not be as unhelpful as possible?

On a question about the biggest countries in the EU, we reminded everyone that England wasn’t in the EU. And three teams still said England.

The last place subject was Colin Firth at one show, and one team watched Bridget Jones’ Diary in preparation that day, right before we asked a question on the scene that introduced Mark Darcy.

And a bonus question on the proportion of Australians approved of torture ended when the first team to guess got it exactly right. How someone became such an expert on torture, we didn’t want to know.

See you next week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

When we were asking a question about what a set of people had in common, someone guessed “they’re all white”, just as we rattled off the name of Nelson Mandela.

In addition to the marmalade sandwich the Queen supposedly keeps in her handbag, one team guessed that she also keeps bolt cutters for cutting brake lines.

After their teammate got a particularly obscure question, one player said their performance was both impressive and sad. Hey, impressive and sad is about 90% of our business!

See you next week.
