To make up the numbers

Quiz Jokes

This week saw me meeting up with a group of friends – one of whom is a regular reader of these jokes – for our regular pub quiz, and I thought that quiz jokes would be a good topic for this week’s puns and one liners. As always, they come with no guarantee of hilarity or originality…




I went to a pub quiz last night. I could tell it was a rough place when the first question was “What are you looking at?”


Question at the pub quiz: “Can you name a race of French speaking people from an Island in the Mediterranean.” I said “Corsican.” Team mate said “Go on then”


Didn’t do well at the pub quiz. Turns out I don’t know much about pubs.


Instruction for the pub quiz was that the team names should be one word only. We were called “Not very good at following instructions”.


Pub quiz didn’t go well. The quiz master asked “name a Bond villain”, but he just wouldn’t take No as an answer.


For sale: Broken quiz machine, £10. No questions asked.


Tried to organise a quiz to cheer up everyone in the hospital ward but the doctor said “don’t test my patients”.


Went on a tour of the local lemonade factory. Afterwards, they gave us a pop quiz.


One of my friends didn’t show up for the pub quiz, so we called a statistician we know to make up the numbers.


Lost the quiz by using the wrong pencil to fill in the answers. It just wasn’t 2B.
