Quiz night

Last night we were roped into attending a quiz night. I haven't been to one of these for about twenty years and we really enjoyed the whole thing. They were really very popular back then. I recall 'professional' groups of people cleaning up the prizes much to the chagrin of the regulars.

Last night's quiz was a fund raiser for an Anglican Church and had 18 tables of six people. The group who won on the night looked like blow-ins, but they did have a tenuous connection to one of the parishioners. We know this because one of the ladies at our table went and congratulated them and asked them a few probing questions to determine if they were in fact Pros.

Rounds of the quiz were punctuated by other fun games for small prizes. One such side competition was a cryptic quiz and I have reproduced it here with only one clue solved for you.

There were two Biblical questions and the church Minister, a Vicar of Dibley type lady got both wrong. Shame!
