NerdGasm V!

When the time comes to write the definitive history of Big Dave F's NerDgasm quiz, I think chapter five will be the one where the story really gets going. The Pillars of Hercules is a narrow old venue, (more of a corridor than a pub if the truth be told), but it's got character, and it played host to Nerdgasm's biggest gathering of quiz fans to date.

As ever, Quiz Supremo Dave was in fine form, meeting and greeting his fans...

spreading joy amongst the happy contestants...


...and getting into character for his "complete that wrestling quote" question...

Yeah, nobody got that one. We were all treated to further macho antics later though, as Dave took on a junkie who had wandered into the pub to beg for skag money. He faced her down hollering at her to clear off. She, of course, ignored him and slunk off to the bogs to jack up. Huzzah for London's magical West End!

I was joined by the capital's premier Kraven The Hunter lookalike, Mr John Bishop, Mike Leader, who looks a bit like Nate from Six Feet Under, and Joe Ewens - haven't decided who he looks like yet, it'll come...

Anyway, nice to see you lads. Apologies for getting drunk and shouting about the episode of Different Strokes with the paedo, (Link HERE, by the way).

We didn't win, that honour went to this fine bunch of Doctor Who nuts...

...well deserved, and a great trio who were kind enough to give me one of their star prizes - a bottle of Spider-Man aftershave! Here I am posing with it in the urinals...

which is entirely appropriate as it smells EXACTLY like Toilet Duck.
A fragrant end to a top evening.
Vive Le Nerdgasm!

Actually one team got the wrestling quote.... 'Watcha gonna do when all the little Hulkamaniacs and the biggest arms in the world.... Run wild on you!'
Top night... That would be made even topper by the addition of Wheatley.
Mr Salmond Esq. shame on you...

I have a feeling Hulk Hogan wasn't on top form the night he came up with that one. Plus I reckon Dave could take him.
