The JOE Friday Pub Quiz: Week 152

Hello and welcome to yet another edition of the world-famous JOE Friday Pub Quiz

The Cambridge English dictionary defines a pub quiz as "a quiz (= a competition in which you answer questions) held in a pub between teams of players". Whilst not quite being as established an authority on the English language as I would like, I define it as something pretty similar.


You're probably wondering, at this point, why I am taking the intro to a pub quiz to explain what a pub quiz is. If you're here, actively choosing to participate in a pub quiz, then you probably know what one is. Or, at the very least, have a vague sort of idea. So it's a good question. A valid query. An acceptable dispute.

The truth is... the truth is that every week we have to fill a couple of hundred of words that nobody reads because they just skip straight to the quiz and I, for one, am sick of it.

So consider this a protest of sorts. Enjoy your quiz. I hope you can sleep at night knowing what it has done to what was once the finest pub quiz intro writer the world has ever seen.
