Vaguely Festive Pop Quiz – the storys end

So after much too-ing and fro-ing a magnificent many of you (39 in total) turned up to the Bah-humbug edition of the monthly pop quiz.
I hope that you all enjoyed the food, sorry it didn’t quite stretch to everyone but there were a few late comers on the day who didn’t pre-book, causing panic for the chef (me) and panic for the quiz master to get it all going (me again).
Anyway it was smashing to see a wide variety of ages and musical tastes on display and a very closely fought contest ensued.
9 teams attempted the first question and at the first pit stop of two rounds “Sexy 6 Some” – them pesky kids upstairs – were into an early lead with only “668 the neighbour of the beast” (24 points) and “we’re so young” (20 points) helping each other to within dribbling distance of the leaders. Chris’ Angels (8) and Hoof Hearted (10) – oh I get it now 😐 – made “We Cum Last” (11 points) look distinctly mid table.
The break for food saw “Bum Direction” take the musical interlude spot prize by 1/2 a point from Toms & Jerry in the cubby-hole.
After the break The Sexys continued their dominance moving to 51 points after the 4 rounds, “668” closing the gap slightly (46 points), T’s & J a distant 3rd (37 points), the rest of the teams it would seem more intent on polishing off the Rose and darkstar IPA.
So it all came down to the final table rounds. Top scorers on these were Tom’s & Jerry and Hoof Hearted with 28 points Bum Direction and Quizmass with 27. But what of our leaders? Had the internet stopped working ? was shazam no longer sparkling? would 668 continue improving with no B team to draw players from? Were the Angels (chris’ or Bev and Jim) going to supply a dastardly ending…
well no actually our youngsters ran out of steam to finish on 68 and the old gits of 668 pipped them at the post by knowing stuff about old albums that sold lots before they were born to finish on a very good 73 points and take the Christmas crown and the prizes of two very large jars of sweets and a Nibbler cheeseboard whenever they next come in.

Next pop quiz is on Friday January 24th, but please book, as I would hate to turn people away on the night if we have no space or food
