Police Called To Pop Quiz Row
Seven police vehicles we called to the Fox and Cart pub in Merston on Wednesday evening to quell a disturbance after a heated argument broke out during the weekly Quiz Night.
Publican Sid Smith, 57, explained that the problem arose when he read out the answer to question 17; “How many famous people are featured on the cover of Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band?”
“We reckoned Karl Stockhausen don’t count ‘cos he ain’t famous” claimed pub regular Alf Smith, 58 (no relation) when interviewed after the incident. “I’ve never heard of him!”
The pub quiz was started in 2008 replacing the previous Wednesday night attraction when council officials pointed out that cock-fighting was no longer legal.
