A group of medics I used to do pub quizzes with went by a few names.
Norfolk 'N Chance
"Harold Shipman's school of medicine" was one of my favourites, "Not for 2s" (referring to the medical abbreviation for not calling the cardiac arrest team in event of death, and thus implying a lost cause) was another.
Both sick "humour", but kept us going for our few hours of freedom before the next 32 hour shift.
Posted 27 January 2010 - 01:45 AMDuring the Hurricane Katrina aftermath, one team down our pub called themselves Rape Hour At The Superdome.
Posted 27 January 2010 - 02:51 AMWe used to use Ken Dodd's dad's dog's dead, the quiz master will love you for it.
Posted 27 January 2010 - 10:23 AMour work puts on a quiz every few months, it tends to get pretty messy as its held in a working mens club so a pint is about £1.20. Here's some of the team names from the last one...

Posted 27 January 2010 - 12:17 PMWhen I lived in Aberystwyth we would enter as 'Dovey Junction Resedents Association' Dovey Junction was the name of a station two stops before aber which was in the middle of a nature reserve. The nearest road was 1/2 a mile down a footpath from it.
Thats a map of it. That thing that looks like a road that gets kinda close - thats the footpath, the road is the A487.
Though I guess that dosent really help unless your doing a quiz in Aber, Borth or somewhere on the line upto Pwllheli...

Posted 27 January 2010 - 12:19 PMMy favourite team name ever was just after Dermot Morgan fro Father Ted died. The team name was "A Brim Full Of Ted's Ashes When He's 45".

Posted 27 January 2010 - 02:29 PMWhen there was for of us in a team we used to go with "The Four Skins".
Another few were "hold on two seconds, I'm bursting for a shit" so it sounds like the quizmaster is needing a shit and stopping reading out the results to go take one.
Posted 27 January 2010 - 03:01 PMA well known edinburgh uni quiz team is called 'Your mum's a golf course', which I feel is rather succinct.
