Quiz night at Pirates Steakhouse and Pub, Hout Bay

See if you can figure out this sample question from yesterday's quiz night (every 1st Thursday of the month) at Pirates Steakhouse and Pub at Hout bay. The champion team was able to get 13 out of the 14.
To make the story semi-readable, insert the names of well known bands and artists-- some old, some new. The number in parenthesis indicate how many letters. Good luck!

*right said fred* (5,4,4) as he pulled the bedclothes from us. It was 7am and we were on a surfing holiday. Fred continued "let's go down to the *beach boys* (5,4)-- there's great surf running". I put on my *pink* (4) bathing suit and headed down to the *Sandy Shaw* (6,4)

We soon spotted a group of local lads playing volleyball *Who* (3) were all art lovers-- they were known as the *Culture Club* (7,4). This part of the beach was for men only and was known as the *Boyzone* (7). As soon as we joined them, the tide rose quickly and we got *Wet Wet Wet* (3,3,3)

Dick was the first to get hungry and wanted some breakfast, but rather than use the path back to the top, he decided to climb the rock face. Someone shouted, "don't climb the *Cliff Richard* (5,7), some *Rolling Stones* (7,6) may fall down and hurt you". Unfortunately, he did slip and fall but luckily he was not badly hurt-- a *Deep Purple* (4,6) gash and a few scratches which were covered with a *Band Aid* (4,3).

On the way home, we were stopped by *The Police* (3,6) who told us that we would have to find another way home as there were some *Men at Work* (3,2,4) on the road ahead and there was no way through.

(Highlight the space between the *asterisks* for the answer.)
I always enjoy quiz night at Pirates-- the questions are creative, difficult, but just difficult enough so that you're kicking yourself and saying "I knew that!!!"

What color is an archer's bull's eye? Who was paid $10million for a 10 minute appearance in Superman, which among rose, mike, charlie and juliet is the odd one out, what's a word that begins with A that is used unchanged in over a thousand languages... This is jeopardy in a steak house!

Try the tender rump-bites and ribs combo (ZAR 50) or the pirates beef burger (ZAR 26). Wash it down with a Katemba followed by a Jack & Lime and you'll be drinking like a local in no time.

Conclusion: 0
Three and a half pawikan points. It's good, clean fun best enjoyed in large groups. Minus points because i've gone to quiz night three times and I still haven't won anything!!!
