Quizlings

Quiz nights at The Old Entymologist have become sad and flat in recent weeks, what with big noters from The Errant Naval coming around and winning everything. "Why not jazz it up a bit" we vouchsafed to Evangeline van Holsterin in an anonymous note tied to a stone and put in the hoof of her horse "Mr. Kraken will eat you" (an evil tempered beast given to rolling in swamps).
Evangeline confronted Myself and Smut Clyde at Anchovy Whirling Disease and Building Things Out of Potato Chips Society meeting. "You loonies should think up a new quiz night presentation" she opined after showing us the anonymous note and pointing out the "Riddled Enterprises" letterhead.
After much brainsturmanddrang and several bottles of the Deuxiémes Crus Christmas Ale we decided on a format that was fair and balanced to all people and especially to us.
Smut wears the Red Gown Of Knowledge and you ascend the stairway of Things You Should Know as the questions are asked. I stand by Home step with The Lion of Good Intentions, who may or may not decide to eat you. Or may do it accidentally anyway. Ha ha he's a wacky old lion with personality issues!
tigris stands at the Angel step and may or may not knock you right back down to the bottom of the stair where the lion will probably have a go at you.
The questions come from the questions wheel which has several categories. Try for the rats category, it's a hoot because a cage full of them gets dropped on you if you answer incorrectly/correctly, who can tell!
Beware of step 1, it's labelled Rap but has Rocks beside it. Crossover or not!?!?!?


I apologise for my lack of posting recently. Some people lured me into applying for part-time work and then employed me. The bastards. I have been concentrating on not fucking it up to a noticeable degree.

In the photo it looks like a pair of strapless high heeled Manolos. He's a classy guy.

for a guy with a part time job, you sure know a lot about high-end footwear, AK.

Well that's just great. Get up the stairs and none of the rooms are big enough to fit you.

Angelic is not the mental picture I'd had of tigris.

Very sorry to hear that Kiwi is working. What happened to the welfare state up/down/whatever there?

Very sorry to hear that Kiwi is working. What happened to the welfare state Provided that you don't actually try to get any money it is a fully functioning system. Iffen you need the money you must be a bludger and you deserve to starve.

I have some lovely rat kings you may wish to purchase for a small fee.

Also, I believe some of your antipodean compatriots have something to say about rats.
