    FunkQuest playoffs - S1 QF2 - Heather v Tiffany

    FunkQuest playoffs - S1 QF2 - Heather v Tiffany

    FunkQuest season one playoff Quarter Final between Tiffany Ann Beverlin and Heather Vickery.

    Bothe these ladies first round opponents were unavailable so this match up really was a battle of the walkovers.

    Being the lowest ranked Funkster (13) Heather got the ball rolling.

    Q1. What's the best way to end a conversation.

    Bit of a normalite question sneaked it's way in.

    Good answer from Heather - to ask a clarifying question. My answer - to sum things up and repeat things.

    Going to replace this question - so don't take any notice if you are looking to game the questions.

    Q2. Tiffany picked Westminster Bridge and got the magic wand question.

    Her magic wand would get rid of cancer - by visiting the supermarket.

    Heather was a little more subtle. It would force people to have a third party opinion before they blurt something out.

    Sounds a bit like mind control to me but it was a FUNKY answer.

    Q3. Heather picked the pencils and the question is "What was the last photograph you took?"

    Answer - a tea party and the discussion then moved to real tea leaves or tea bags.

    Tiffany took a picture of a cat... riiight...

    Q4. Tiffany picked the hand in the air (like you just don't care).

    Answering and playing with phones at the dinner table.

    Again - this is a normalite question that has crept in. The answer is an obvious NO.

    Q5. Heather picked the jars of jam and the question is "What outdoor activity would you like to try?"

    Heather picked hot air ballooning and Tiffany picked some kind of massage with men in robes. Heather went for that also...

    FunkQuest playoffs - S1 QF1 - Ben v Cathy

    Q1. The question is "What film can you watch over and over again?"

    Cathy picked Shrek. "Quest? I'm already on a Quest..."

    Ben had received this question previously but Funkily gave a different answer. VHS recordings of Ironman races from the 1990's..
    To marvel at their efforts given the levels of technology they had back then.


    Q2. Ben got the magic wand question.

    He would get his old dog back and Cathy would get her visa for permanent residence in Australia sorted.

    Q3.


    Q4. Ben picked the records and the question is "What really needs to be modernised?"

    His answer was the US tax system and Cathy's answer was LA international airport.

    Q5. The question is "Who would you pay money to see?

    Cathy picked Elizabeth Gilbert and Ben picked the Dali Lama

    Nathen vs Lana FunkQuest season 1 playoffs

    Nathen vs Lana FunkQuest season 1 playoffs

    Number two seed Lana Nelson (Lana from Montana) takes on number four see Nathen Aswell is this latest first round match in the Funkquest end of season playoffs.

    Q1. Being a musician, Nathen had his questions selected for him in his regular season epsiode. It was hardly a surprise when the question was

    "Which artist or singer did you mine along to as a teenager?"

    A discussion about impressionists followed. (Obviously...)

    Lana picked Barbara Streisand.

    Q2. If you could go back in time, what would you teach people.

    Nathen recounted a book from 1885 about a guy who left the busy bustling city and went to live in a tree. (What would he think now...)

    Lana talked about nutrition and food.

    Q3. The runnning shoes. When did you last play a board game or cards?

    Lana played cards at christmas and Nathen talked about backgammon.

    (Editors note: It is funny how old school pursuits that cross generations are low tech...)

    Q4. What is the most ridiculous thing you have bought?

    I think I may have misheard this on the original episode. (FUNKQUEST goes FAST...)

    But Lana shared her experience of buying pasties. I think this is an American term for nipple tassles....

    Be sure you know what you are letting yourselves in for potential FUNKSTERS.

    Q5. Where do you get your news from?

    Nathen is a CBC listener and Lana uses a site called Newsy

Marred by...

... the bad audio quality. And I’m talking about the host. I tried to listen to the episode about Salespeople but it was pretty unlistenable. What a pity! As I really liked the premise
