Do you know your Apu quotes from your Sideshow Bob one-liners? Can you quote the lyrics to the monorail song? Remember what instrument Lisa plays? Could you name all the characters voiced by Hank Azaria? Then The Simpsons Trivia Night is for you!
"It's more of a Shelbyville idea..."
Many readers will have experienced growing up watching The Simpsons, but some will remember when the lovable yet dysfunctional family first burst onto our TV screens in the late 1980s. It soon became a massive hit all around the world, becoming the longest running series of its kind. The Simpsons really is so ubiquitous, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who hadn't hear of the show.
It feels a little wrong to liken The Simpsons to Shakespeare, but you have to admit, like the bard, the writers of the show have given us lines of dialogue and quotable moments that entered the lexicon and stayed there. There would be very few people who aren't aware of the wide range of hilarious characters and their catchphrases and quirks.
The Simpsons Trivia Night promises to be, "a hilariously fun night of classic Simpson's trivia questions, games and homer-liscious prizes including an awesomely themed raffle prize with raffle proceeds to go to charity." It's a free event but spaces will fill up fast, so register your team as soon as you can.
The event organisers say, "Please don't have a cow man if you do not consider yourself a Simpsons aficionado. Come along, give as much as you want to a worthwhile cause, enjoy great food, a chilled atmosphere and many laughs. You probably know more than you think anyway!"
The bar will be selling discounted drinks and the Corinda train station is right across the road, so you don't have to worry about driving. If you do want to drive of course there is plenty of parking at the RSL.
"To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems."
So get your team registrations in now and enjoy a great night of trivia and fun!
