We had a quiz almost two weeks ago, you know. Here are the results, with many apologies for not remembering to put them up sooner. It was a nail-biter, but in the end Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass defended their title, though it took a tie-breaker to decide it (hat tip to Mark of Bestias Afuera for pointing out I’d accidentally given them a point too many during round three, and thus taking it to that tie-breaker). First-timers Patagones might have finished fifth, but just 9½ points is a remarkably short gap between fifth and first place, so well done to all the competitors – and see you next month!

The tie-break was to guess the population of Palermo, the most populous barrio of Buenos Aires, according to the 2010 Argentine census. The closest guess would take the glory. Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass guessed 220,000 whilst Bestias Afuera rather ambitiously went for 1.1 million. The answer is 225,245.

Bestias Afuera take second place, but win the sportsmanship award (not pictured, because there isn't one) for the month.
