 INTERESTING MOMENTS

A team that really needed points went for it in the bonus round when we were looking for a US state with 3/4 of the letters being vowels. Their guess… Philadelphia. Which is neither a state, nor does it contain enough vowels. But they went for it and we salute that.

The blokiest team at one of our shows turned out to be big fans of Shania Twain. Don’t let preconceptions deceive you.

A math question about John Travolta’s film career saw one team get every element of the math correct, and then forget to actually do the math. You’ve got to finish the job people!

Someone complained that by playing an audio clip of Breaking Bad, we made them watch the whole series again. We make no apologies.

See you next week.

STD = Save the Date

NRL = Not Really Literate

WAP = Worship and Prayer

NSFW = No Surfing for Whales

YOLO = You Obviously Love Oreos

PHD = Please Hire, Desperate

Any alternatives to common acronyms will get a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS 

One of our hosts gave a clue that a word we were looking for was 6 letters… when the word was militia… which is seven letters. Because sometimes counting is hard.

There was a debate over whether or not Russia counts as a European country. By the way… it is.

One team responded that there were no smart asses on their team. Which is untrue. We can state without fear of contradiction that their team is made up ENTIRELY of smart asses.

See you next week.
