I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

As I’m sure many of you probably did as well. Except, despite my partner’s best efforts, we could not find any Gold Brick Eggs or Heavenly Hash. So, it’s a sad year at my household… Though we have enough chocolate to last us till Halloween, we’re missing our two favorites. That didn’t stop me from eating way too much of it, though. When you stuck working all day on Easter and unable to join in on any festivities, you sublimate your sadness with sweet, sweet candy… and thus my tummy troubles. But enough about that… it’s a poopy situation, but I’m sure you have better things to read… like the quiz recap!!! Here we go!

We started off with a round about Monday… sorta. It used the letters in the word “Monday” to form the answers, so we got things like Dodo, Nomad, May Day (which most of you missed by saying Mom Day), Dynamo (which none of you missed… thank goodness), and Madonna. We started off great with high scores, all around.

And, the high scores continued into Round 2, where we explored greatly overplayed songs (which I then exasperated later by playing the full version of several of them in the scoring break). You could really tell how much these songs are ingrained into our collective psyche by the sheer amount of singalongs that occurred amongst the crowd. Most of you did very well in this round, but none quite so good as Cheesy Weiners and Jon Hamm Sandwich with their perfect scores and jokers.

At this point, I thought it was going to be an easy breezy night with teams doing really well all night long and super awesome high scores at the end. I was wrong. Oh, so wrong… and Round 3 was there it began. It was all about TV, and some of this, I admit was a bit obscure. Like Hey Dude and Salute Your Shorts “And when I think about you, it makes me wanna fart!” “It’s ‘I hope we never part.’ Now, get it right or pay the price!” The fact that I remember that little tidbit from the theme song frightens me a bit. High at 4200 Feet and Three Legged Stool apparently are the biggest couch potatoes of the lot, and scored perfect 8s.
Round 4 spiraled even further down the tubes with a round on Jenny’s Blocks and Jenny From The Block. Surprisingly, I have no J-Lo music so I filled this round with songs that had the word “Block” in them. Though I realize now, that none of them actually had the word “Block” in the lyrics, only in the title… so yeah… the music was kinda random. A few of you knew what a Spinning Jenny was, a small handful knew about the movie Winter’s Bone. Everyone knew that Jennifer Hudson did not win American Idol, and sadly… 2 teams knew about the show “Minute to Win It.” For which I am heartily sorry. Congrats are in order for Jon Hamm Sandwich for their perfect score.

Then came our visual round about evil henchman who weren’t so evil. You guys did pretty good here. No HUGE scores (it was a 16-pointer after all), but most f you at least knew the TV shows/movies that were depicted. I am very sad that no one knew Max from The Muppet Movie. Shame on you. The highest score here was Joffrey’s Heaven’s Gate Punch with 13 points.

Round 6 was all about games that make no sense. And it was the lowest scoring round on average (as Round 6 tends to be anyway). Don’t feel bad, I hadn’t heard of some of this stuff either. The highest score came from Beaver De La Muerte who fielded 6 points.

Round 7 was a little different. All the answers rhymed, and required an audio clip as well as a question. This ate up a lot more time than usual, which is why quiz ran a bit long last night. Sorry about that guys. Anyway, next time we have a round like that I’ll come up with a better way to do it. Maybe I’ll make a handout with the questions on it, and just play the clips. That would probably make it much quicker. Reading the correct answers for this one was funny. I felt like I was reading a Dr. Suess book.

Then we had our random knowledge round, a couple of last minute jokers, and we were all done. In the end, Cheesy Weiners stole the show and took away first place, followed by Jon Hamm Sandwich in second, and Joffrey’s Heaven’s Gate Punch in third. I need some of Larry’s luck to run off on me since he seems to win the e-mail bonus drawing more times than anyone else. But, now he has matching popsicle bags, so he and Kat and be all matchy-matchy.

And now a very special edition of…

See you at quiz!

Despite the chill in the air, we managed to have an awesome pub quiz last night at Cedar Creek. I must apologize if I seemed a bit down, or disconnected last night. The enormous amount of plant jizz in the air was making me miserable so I had to take an antihistamine, and this is the result... I kinda become a bit of a zombie. At least I'm not shambling forward, trying to bite people... well, I mean I do that, but it's only out of clumsiness and love. We had some great scores last night on a couple of rounds, and I will have to announce the same team name several times in the blog, so I'm probably going to shorten it so that it's quicker and easier. Does Anyone Make a Tampon Big Enough to Plug Up The Bloody Moon Tonight? Will be henceforth shortened to Bloody Moon. Since they scored the highest on many rounds, that's what I shall call them because typing that out every time is going to be a bitch.

We started out with a round on Michael Bay. Not really, just the letters in his name, and lots of playful ribbing about how he tends to ruin all of our childhood memories. I mean seriously WTF was with Transformers 2? The first one was ok... not great, but ok. The second one was just shit... and I'll be honest I never even watched the 3rd one. Anyhow, you guys did pretty good, knowing Maya Angelou (not Maya Rudolph) knows why the caged bird sings, Beetle Baily is a very lazy soldier from the comics, Call Me Maybe was the biggest hit in 2012 by a Canadian, and that Alchemy created the Philosopher's Stone. You didn't need to be a Harry Potter geek to know that one, but it helped. Four teams lead off with perfect scores: Bloody Moon, Fuck You Wink Martindale, We Wish You Were Dead, The New Mascot for US Airways Is the Spread Eagle, and Beaver De Le Muerte.

Round 2 was all about the telephone, and you guys did pretty good. The biggest stumbling block (besides knowing the difference between New Edition and The Jackson 5) was the Phil Collins song. Some put Genesis, which I can understand, but most added extra stuff to the song title, which made it into a totally different song from the 70s. But I was feeling generous (antihistamines) so I gave you credit if you were close. No one did better than Bloody Moon with 15 points and a joker to boot.

Round 3 was about Mike Judge. If you don't know who he is... go look him up. Scores were pretty average here, with most teams getting 4s or 5s. The biggest thing was listing Beavis and Butthead twice since it was both a series and a film. And no, he had nothing to do with The Office, Futurama, or The Simpsons... and surprisingly nothing to do with Dariah, which was a spinoff of Beavis and Butthead. Anyhow, Fuck You Wink Martindale, We Wish You Were Dead did the best with a perfect 8.

Round 4 was all about The Jacksons. You guys really need to brush up on your Jackson family history. Yes, Janet showed her boobies during the superbowl (well, one of them anyway), but La Toya was the one who posed nude for a magazine. Randy was the answer for the one with the American Idol clue which shows that you also don't know your American Idol... which is sad. BAD AMERICANS!! BAD BAD!!! Anyway... let's see some of the craziness that has come out of the Jackson family.

This is Rebbie Jackson's one and only hit song Centipede. This video is atrocious, and really exemplifies just how shitty music videos were in the 80s.

This is Tito Jackson's sons in their 90s band 3T.

Grats go out to Bloody Moon and Let's Leave This Royal Wedding, It's Getting Kinda Dead for their perfect scores.

And, of course, this is the reason why Michael Jackson has a crater on the moon named after him.

I know that last one is really long, but if you've never seen it, it's worth a watch. It's a nice peice of musical pop culture history.

Round 5 was all about famous people in their 80s. Boy some of these guys are looking rough lately. Bloody Moon and Pronunciation is my A-Chill-Ees Heel recognized them all with perfect 8s.

Round 6 was about musical jews, and you guys gave me all kinds of crazy answers. No Natalie Portman did not tell people to stop taking pictures of her house. I hear she's actually quite amicable to her fans. And I have no idea who Stan Gershwin is... perhaps George had another brother besides Ira? Proving they know the most about musical jewish things, Bloody Moon and Fuck You Wink Martindale, We Wish Your Were Dead both got perfect scores.

Round 7, I admit was tough. First of all Zach Galifiniakis is hard to hear/understand because he talks so low and mumbly. Plus, a lot of inference and context clues are needed to really understand what they are discussing. You guys did about as good as I expected though, with the average scores around 5. Not bad at all.

Then we hit round 8 with hashtags, oxford commas, dark elves, bears, yodas, botas, hodas, and codas. Lots of jokers were thrown down, and many teams jumped into higher positions due to this. However no one was about to catch up yo Bloody Moon who came out in the lead throughout the entire game. Second place went to Fuck You Wink Martindale, We Wish You Were Dead followed by Let's Leave This Royal Wedding, It's Getting Kinda Dead in third.

See you guys next week for another fantastic edition of Pub Quiz!

  1. While driving down 610: Him: You should probably try to get over. Me: I know, I'm trying. Him: Well you want to do it quick before all these whores bunch up by the exit. Well, I guess whores don't really bunch up do they... they spread... long pause wow... did you hear what I just said?

  2. While regaling us with a tale of his trip to a park: Him: So, this lizard was huge, and so we sat there for a while and I guess he got comfortable with us being there and he came back and just sat there for a second while I watched him, and then he darted into his hole. Terry was like “Wow, he must really trust you to show you where his hole is.” Us: Giggling insanely Me: Pulling out my phone and taking notes Him: Oh, come on!!! I didn't say that, Terry did!

See you at quiz!

Live and learn. I now know that if I create a playlist online while my tablet is turned off, it fucks everything up. So my two audio rounds last night were nothing but silence. But that's ok, It was a bit more daunting to do them manually, but thank you all for persevering through that with me. I promise now that I know this little technical fluke, my tablet will be much more well-behaved in the future.

So, what did we learn last night?

In round one we learned that you guys know your Phils. All of you got a 7 or an 8 with the exception of a few teams, and the main thing missed was Mallard Fillmore, which is understandable, because who the fuck reads newspaper comics anymore, anyway?

In round two we learned that you guys don't know many baseball terms, considering how many of you put “Home Run” in multiple blanks. We also learned that the theme to Walker Texas Ranger is apparently very well known, although most people thought it was Willie Nelson.

In round three we learned that bananas and knives can be oddly similar, and that a web series about fruit has no banana in it at all, which is weird.

Round four taught us that sometimes the answer is in the question, thus Inifluenza, which most of you got. We also learned that Amana is NOT a cheese, I revealed a medical condition I suffer from, and we learned that whey is a liquid, and is therefore rather difficult to be pressed into a block.

When it comes to crosshatching, we learned that it's not necessary in order to make an iconic figure appear even more iconic, and the high scores proved this.

In round 6, we learned that there is no such thing as a tiered or fondant mole rat, and that neither Judge Judy, Judge Whopner, nor Judge Brown were ever members of the Errol Flynn Gang.

In the second audio round we learned the importance of being specific when the quizmaster asks you to, thus all the incorrect “Toy Story” answers. Remember, if I say that, and the film is a franchise, I need the number as well. But scores were relatively low on average in this round anyway, even without the mishap there. Just goes to show... once you're on the hit sitcom, it's all downhill from there.

And finally in round 8 we learned that Michael Bay did not direct Casablanca... if he did there would have been a lot more explosions. Wink Martindale is indeed alive, and despite so many of you thinking Oxygen was the channel for women, Lifetime is truly the channel for women and gay men. We also learned you can rent an entire fucking country, apparently, and that young adults everywhere are enamored with watching a slack-jawed girl kiss a dead guy.

In the end, The Grim Reaper Finally Noticed He Overlooked Mickey Rooney managed to edge out Hey Mickey You So Died in the final rounds claiming victor and leaving them in second place followed by Drunk, Naked, and Driving a Zamboni in third.

  1. While watching the preview for Malificent... Me: I am so excited! Him: Eh, I mean, I want to see it, but I'm not super excited about it. Maybe of the girl was prettier I would be. They should call her Sleeping Ugly. Me: laughing

  2. While discussing an online game... Him: And it's really cool when you get to that level because you get access to these upgrades that make your soldiers come faster... wow, that didn't come out right. Me: It's all about technique. Him: laughing

See you guys next week!
