For those of you fancying another laugh at my expense (I also did Brainteaser once) on Thursday, tune in to Eggheads on BBC2 at 6pm - or failing that, get it on iPlayer...

Yes, my team is going to appear then trying to win 5000.

:nervous:

I'm pleased to see that you wiped the smirk right off that smug cunt CJ's face :beer:

Now MOBIUS, can you lend me a tenner? ;)

Mr. Bas
12-06-2008, 18:19:31
Haha, nice job! Congrats :beer:

Yaaay, we did twat them didn't we...?:)

They looked pretty smug when they were introduced to us at the beginning of the show and must have thought that being a sports team we were going to be a walk over...:D

It was great fun and a good day out - as well as being a nice little earner!:beer:

Asher

How much did you win?

MOBIUS
12-06-2008, 22:31:22
Only 5000, which is pretty low...

Each show is worth 1000, if a team loses that money rolls over to the next game and so on...

The best winnings so far was 75000.

They are no pushover, but today we took them apart!:D

Well at least Civ 4 has taught me something - where Lalibela is :D

Well played. :beer: I've never seen the Eggheads thrashed by that margin. I'm not sure I've ever seen them lose (but I don't really watch it very much).

Just watched it on iPlayer. Nice one.

You guys totally spoilered the ending though.

Just finished watching it on BBC iplayer...

I like the cheeky flirt with Judith at the start! ;)

What's with wearing all of the kit?

Quite the drubbing you gave them!

You know me, always the gentleman...!:cute:

We were on as the South Wales Warriors of course! I have been known to play, but am currently injured cos some fat lump sat on my ankle in training! We're already 3-0 for this year...:)

Quite the drubbing you gave them!

:D

They didn't know what hit them! You should have seen the smug, patronising looks at the start of the show. There had been another American Football team on from Bristol who were annihilated by them - I guess they expected to do the same to us...

I haven't watched the show before - but the guy on their team with the long dark hair had the most permanently smug look I have ever seen - glad you beat him!

Funko
13-06-2008, 14:44:44
Hmm... should I do the invisible snails?

Yeah, that is who I referred to as a "smug cunt" in an earlier post. And those are my mother's words, that is how annoying he is :D

Oh dear, how gay is that!?:o

Obviously the invisible snails are from the Cotswolds. Definitely the right answer!

Do they ask you to talk through your answers on that show? Or at least think out loud about them. Certainly on some other quiz shows it seems like contestants have been told to talk about why they think something is the answer rather than just giving the answer.

You mean it's not "how do I know what I think until I hear what I say"?

Yes, they say it makes you look more interesting. I just thought it made me look like a bit of a twat - especially talking about doing a scuba diving 'thing'...:o

Or Thom and his logic about why he thought Billy Connolly was more likely than Stephen Fry to have played Oscar Wilde in the movie of the same name!:bash:

Yes, I can definitely see the entertainment value!:D

Iplayer doesn't work outside UK while Egghead isn't carried by any US channels. :(
