From Pete Postlethwaite's Preposterous Posthumous Pizza Party to Quizzy McQuizFace, here's our rundown of the most legendary quiz teams that ever put pen to paper in Britain's pubs.

1. Ken Dodd's Dad's Dog's Dead

Everyone loves a tongue twister don't they? And if this doesn't cause the quavering quizmaster to quail, then teams can try: Seal Cub Clubbing Club or Pete Postlethwaite's Preposterous Posthumous Pizza Party, *evil laugh*.

 

2. I'm Aung San Suu Kyi, Get Me Out of Here

This remains our all-time favourite team name but it has (fortunately) somewhat dated. Teams wanting something a bit more 2016 could go for Gloria LeicesterFan, Emergency Brexit or, If I Lose This Quiz by a Narrow Margin Can I Just Do It Again?

Microphone

 

3. I Wish This Microphone Was a Penis

Let's group this selection of team monikers under the heading "humiliating the quiz master". Other examples include I'm a Dickhead, I've got a Tiny Dick and it Hurts When I Wee, and I Lost My Virginity at the Age Of...

 

4. The Landlord asked me to announce there'll be free drinks all night.

Ah, that old classic. See also: Spanish in-Quiz-Mission and The Bodies Are Under the M – which really only works at score time.

 

5. I thought this was speed dating?

For teams playing it for laughs this is guaranteed a guffaw of appreciation. Quizzy McQuizFace is another option or, for a bit of audience participation, The Judean People's Front (all together now: "Splitters!").

 

OliviaNewtonJohn

 

6. Trivia Newton John

Probably the best known of the sleb-influenced names but there are arguably better ones, including Quiztopher Quiztofferson, Quiz Team Aguilera, Red Hot Trivia Peppers, Agatha Quizteam and...um... Michael Barrymore's Swim Team.

 

7. Universally Challenged

Along with Quizzee Rascals, Cunning Linguists and Benjamin Quizraeli, this team name is guaranteed to have appeared at every pub quiz across the land ever. Fact.

 

8. Quizpicable Me

Film names are a popular source of inspiration. Other favourites include Sink the Quizmark, The Quizzard of Oz, and Les Quizerables (OK that last one's more of a novel-slash-musical but you know what we mean).

 

GameOfThrones

 

9. Game of Phones

This isn't the only popular team name based on the global obsession that is Game of Thrones, either. We've had several reports of teams calling themselves Hodor and then answering simply "Hodor" to every question. One for the GoT enthusiasts only, perhaps?

 

10. Norfolk and Chance

Best said out loud (or not, depending on how many children are around), other options comprise Suffolk and Hope and Fact Hunt, for those of us who enjoy a bit of profanity.
