Nobel Prize For Quizzing

Michael B

A new team, Nobelmente, won tonight's hotly-contested quiz at The Nightingale. Their name is a musical direction (actually spelt "nobilmente", fellow pedants) meaning majestically or in a noble manner - their quiz victory was all this and more as they held on to the half-time lead to pip Funambulists by a single point.

For the first time ever, two teams guessed exactly the same answer in the "closest to" jackpot round, so Funambulists and Just The Two Of Us went head to head, with the latter's knowledge (!) of bumper car marathon world records proving invaluable. 26 hours, 51 minutes and 8 seconds if you were wondering. What? You weren't? Fine.

Under a different name, the aforementioned husband-and-wife team won a baked camembert in the jackpot a couple of months ago. Tonight, however, they won ... yup ... another baked camembert. No £300 jackpot on this occasion, but at least they're consistent.
