1. Name an Official Single by Declan McKenna
2. Name a 20th or 21st century Pope
3. Name a UK Olympian not born in the UK
4. Name a 2017 UK Top 40 single by someone called Martin
5. Name a word in the first verse of the UK National Anthem
6. Name a Polish city ending in 'w'
7. Name one of the Von Trapp children in The Sound of Music
8. Name a Buzzjack forum with at least one female moderator
9. Name a 00s UK Top 5 single by a band whose name begins with the word ‘The’
10. Name a question in this round that will have at least one pointless answer

Will start as soon as there's a crowd!

Still no crowd but I'm impatient so let's kick this off:

1. Name an Official Single by Declan McKenna




03: Humongous - THEO. - Jupiter - Bré - Dobbo
04: Brazil - Spadam - cqmerqn - Josh - J▲hq - Mack
04: The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home - Pete - Froot - LewisGT - Jay - Jacob
04: Bethlehem - Jade - breezyspice - BridgeCow - Harry - Cameron
04: Paracetamol - Liam - UltraReputation - King Rollo - Dandy* - Chez
05: Isombard - Dalek - Sarah - Riser - Dan - Lotti - Suedehead2


(btw orange is a standard answer, green is a loophole answer and red is an incorrect answer)

A fairly straightforward question to start with, with only six possible answers and no real opportunity for loopholes. I couldn't have cared less about this fella until 'The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home' was released and then suddenly he was the best alternative musician of the decade laugh.gif Yes, that's how quickly artists turn around for me. This also means there's no-one on the back foot as everyone is within a 2 point range of each other, however those couple of bonus points may prove valuable for those who chose Humongous. (or maybe not. i've not counted the results up yet tongue.gif)

These questions were delightfully random. I may have had to do a lot of googling ohmy.gif

Already slaying *.* I prefer "Brazil" to "Humungous" but glad I chose the lower-scoring of the two.

2. Name a 20th or 21st century Pope


00: Cyril VI of Alexandria - Jacob
01: Benedict XVI - Dalek - Bré
01: John XXIII - BridgeCow - Dandy*
01: Pius X - Liam - Chez
02: Pius XII - breezyspice - Dan - Lotti
02: Francis - Jay - UltraReputation - Dobbo
02: Pius XI - Jupiter - Sarah - King Rollo
03: Paul VI - Josh - Froot - Riser - J▲hq
04: John Paul II - Pete - THEO. - Harry - Cameron - Mack
05: John Paul I - Jade - Spadam - cqmerqn - LewisGT - Suedehead2


This is the first of two questions inspired by my visit to Krakow over the summer (take a guess at what the other was tongue.gif ). Basically everywhere we went there were massive photos of John Paul II draped everywhere, and pretty much all the souvenir shops has a ton of John Paul II memorabilia. He was the second most popular answer though, only being beaten by his Predecessor, John Paul I, who was only pope for 33 days, a feature which seemingly brought the Buzzjackers flocking to him. We were looking to have a second question in a row with no pointlesses until Jacob answered at the last minute with Pope Cyril, an Egyptian pope who was indeed around in the 20th century. So everyone who answered #2 for Question 10 have him to thank.

Well... the first question could have gone worse so I'll take that kink.gif as for the second one WTF, I always seem to alternate between I or II (like movie sequels for example) and always go for the worse option drama.gif I was drawn to John Paul for the Lennon-McCartney relevance of course.

3. Name a UK Olympian not born in the UK



01: Yamilé Aldama - Pete - BridgeCow
01: Olga Butkevych - Harry - Lotti
01: Greg Rusedski - Froot - Dandy*
01: Chris Froome - Jay - Dobbo
02: Tiffany Porter - Josh - Jacob - Mack
02: Tessa Sanderson - Jupiter - Bré - Chez

XX Zharnel Hughes - Sarah (Never competed in Olympics)
XX Richard Kilty - Cameron (Born in the UK and never competed in the Olympics laugh.gif )

EVERYONE ELSE: POINTLESS


So my hope for this question was that no-one would be willing to research the answer and would just go for Mo Farah, knowing they would be correct. Unfortunately there are TONS of pages dedicated to this ‘plastic Brit’ thing I didn’t even know existed. This made Farah himself a pointless answer (guessed only by Sam) among all the hockey team substitutes and people who lost in the heats of the sprints. Best answer award went to King Rollo who came up with a member of the 1960 rowing team which meant I had to do a ton of research to actually find out where he was born. A few incorrects as well, from an athlete who was snubbed from the team and someone who doesn’t fit either of the specified criteria.

Can we see the full list of answers? I didn't know there was a Wiki page but surprirsed no one else plucked for Jo Konta, I'd say her being born in Australia was as well known as Mo?!

The only ones I knew without Googling were Mo Farah and Bradley Wiggins, I thought loads of people would go for the former so I took a punt on the latter as I knew he was from Belgium. Did not expect a Pointless answer for that so yay! cheer.gif making up for the last question <3

(Sorry but the delays are gonna get longer bc I'm out)

4. Name a 2017 UK Top 40 single by someone called Martin



00: Martin Solveig - Places - Lotti
00: Lana Del Rey (with Max Martin) - Lust For Life - THEO.
00: Taylor Swift (with Max Martin) - …Ready For It? - Cameron
00: Katy Perry (with Max Martin) - Chained to the Rhythm - Jacob
00: Martin Solveig - All Stars (Top 40 Dance) - Froot
00: Martin Jensen - Wait (Top 40 iTunes) - cqmerqn

02: The Chainsmokers & Coldplay - Something Just Like This (Chris Martin) - Bré - Dobbo - Dandy*

03: Martin Garrix - Scared to Be Lonely - Pete - Riser - UltraReputation - Chez
05: Martin Garrix - There For You - BridgeCow - Josh - Liam - Jay - J▲hq - Mack
07: Martin Jensen - Solo Dance - Dalek - Spadam - Harry - LewisGT - Sarah - Dan - King Rollo - Suedehead2

XX Martin Solveig - Jade
XX Martin Jensen - breezyspice
XX Kanye West ft. Chris Martin - Homecoming - Jupiter (Released 2007, not 2017!)


The tale of three Martins! This stems from people saying ‘[insert artist here] should do a collab with Martin’, which really isn’t helpful as three DJ Martins have graced the chart this year. Out of the four ‘actual’ answers, one of them is actually pointless, with so many loopholes being guessed. Max Martin was guessed three times, alongside Chris Martin, however they all went for the same Coldplay song and picked up points. A couple of other ‘UK Top 40s’ were also guessed, gaining Froot and cqmerqn pointlesses. A few incorrects here from misreading the question, with an incorrect date from Jupiter and a lack of a name of song from Bree and Jade (which is slightly awkward since she proofread the questions) in before ‘all the mods proofread the questions’
