Once wrestled gravity to the ground--and won. I know every word to ever Explosions in the Sky song. I devour planets and cupcakes. In the cupcake eating world they call me Galactus.

Every year at the various big award shows (The Oscars, The Grammys, The Blockbuster Movie Awards) they roll an ‘In Memoriam’ segment to pay tribute to the lives of those great artists (and Jeff Conaway, zing!) who have punched their ticket for the big UFO in the sky this year. We here at Geeks Who Drink have a similar tradition to honor those no longer amongst us. Namely we photoshop their likenesses onto zombie bodies and use them as fodder for our visual rounds. It’s our little way of saying, ‘Thanks for the memories.’

Yes, tonight’s quiz was particularly zombie-riffic. Aside from our quizzers needing to identify the zombified remains of Steve Jobs, Amy Winehouse, and Heavy D (We barely knew thee!), Round 8 also asked what three zombie movies have been the biggest box office winners over the past thirty years. The answer: the stupid ones. What, did you think quality rotting corpse flicks like Shaun of the Dead or 28 Days Later would beat out cheap audience pandering stuff like Dawn of the Dead and (urgh) Zombieland. And Resident Evil: Afterlife? You mean people paid real money from their own real pockets to see Resident Evil: Afterlife? I’m pretty sure the original title of that flick was ‘Resident Evil: What Number Are We On With This These? Oh Who Cares?’

Standings last night remained consistent throughout with Ballard Liberation Front pulling ahead early on with The Wombats and Girls Sprouts unable to catch up. Remember we’re off next week for that, what do they call it again, oh yeah, Christmas holiday, but will be back on January 1st for our big New Year’s Day Extravaganza! Sober up and join us won’t you.

As a young lad growing up in the wilds of Western Connecticut I was obsessed with a certain piece of music. Something so perfect and harmoniously soothing that it could have only been conceived by a choir of angels serenading the one, true God. That composition is ‘The Chipmunk Christmas Song.’ (Like you hadn’t already guessed.). How many times did I play this song on my little Fischer-Price cassette deck? One million? Two million? A hundred-kabillion? It matters not; the only thing that matters is that it’s not quite the holidays for me without a little bit of this. Angelic isn’t it? And how about that ukulele solo?

Last night’s ‘Christmas Masala’ round definitely got me in the mood for some holiday cheer. All the big players were represented. And when I say ‘big players’ I mean holiday-themed TV specials. ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas,’ ‘A Christmas Carol,’ ‘The Star Wars Holiday Special,’—all the essentials were represented. There was also some stuff in there about three old dudes with funny names who traveled across a desert to bring presents for some little kid. Psssst, haven’t these guys ever heard of FedEx?

 

“You don’t like Christmas very much do you Frank?

Like it? I love it. It’s cold, people stay inside and watch television. Shares go up 10 percent. All these idiots are going to be home watching the boob tube for me tonight. I am the biggest fan Christmas ever had.” – Frank Cross, Scrooged.”

Americans eat like slobs. No disrespect intended there; it’s a fact. It’s part of who we are, built into the culture from the beginning (Little known fact: the first thing the Indians passed out to Columbus and his crew upon discovering the New World was a deep fried triple stack angus burger with a side of onion rings. And a diet soda.). Tonight’s Round 5 personified this by asking our quizzers to identify the fattiest, beefiest, cheesiest creations American fast food has to offer. Teams fared poorly on this round however, meaning they are healthy, freethinking people with sophisticated palettes who demand more from their food than an oversized wad of beef smothered in cow hormone wedged between an artificially processed bun. Don’t worry, I’ve already notified immigration. We’ll have them gone by the end of the week.   

Last night’s quiz revealed things to me that I’d prefer remained, um, unrevealed. I didn’t need to know that Penn State child molester Jerry Sandusky named his memoir “Touched.” I certainly didn’t need to be reminded that somewhere Dane Cook, Larry the Cable Guy, and Carlos Mencia are still alive, performing comedy, and that people are paying real cash money to watch them do this. Bill Hicks, George Carlin, and Bernie Mac, meanwhile, not so much. Also, fuck the Swedes. And D&D designers? Fuck them too. Would it kill you guys to invent a word with only, like, two vowels in it? Halfway through Round 3 my quizzers were regularly shouting, “you’re just making that shit up.” If only friends, if only.

Scores stayed pretty constant throughout the night. Mary Had a Little Cam, the only team to identify the Mortal Kombat theme in Round 1, jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, while The Sleptons vaulted over Electrothok Sherapy in the final round to take second.
