It was, was it not, Lionel Richie who so movingly sang, "Halal, is it meat you're looking for?"
In short, it was not ... but let's not get bogged down by trivial details. Tonight saw a famous victory for a quizzing quartet under that particular moniker, thanks in no small part to an impressive 25 points in the second half. That's more points than four teams accumulated overall. And all this from the team that tried to convince me at half-time that a killer whale is, "basically just a big dolphin".
Away from our Lionel-lovers, it was an evening brimming with joie de vivre and bonhomie. There was a five-way tie for fifth place whilst it was refreshing to see a team of forty-somethings (and that's being generous) high-fiving a correct answer about the animation 'Despicable Me 2'. Acting your shoe size, not your age, chaps - that's The Nightingale spirit.
See you all next time.Disclaimer: Blog posts are written by our Quiz hosts. Any opinions or views expressed may or may not be shared by Question One Limited. If you feel the material here is inappropriate please report it to us so we may address it.
