    “There’s no business like show business” seems to have been the central theme of last night’s pub quiz.  Scores were pretty evenly matched until Round Three when The Bumble Bees broke out into a narrow lead, with Royal Flush and Pickles on a Plate tying for a second place spot.  It wasn’t until Round Five that The Fam doubled down and grabbed the first position, holding onto it for a win in the final round with Ninja Turtles taking second and Ship It! taking third. 

    As an homage to the entertainment centric questions that dominated the quiz, Quizmaster Lou has perverted the lyrics to one of Hollywood’s all time perennial songs.  After all, tinsel town is used to perversions! 

    There's no trivia like King Trivia
    Like no Trivia I know
    Everything about it is frustrating
    Remembering all those facts is a pain
    Nothing else can baffle your thinking
    When you’re seeking answers from your brain

    There's no people like quiz people
    They smile when they Know
    Even a trick question that you know ain’t cool
    You will double or nothing like a crazy fool
    Still you wouldn't change it for a swimming pool
    Let's get on with the show! 

    (with apologies to Irving Berlin)

    That's all folks!  See you next week!
