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!

Apparently, I managed to do something super cool last night. As anyone who attends my quizzes knows, I try to theme the music to the subject of the round it plays in. Since we had a round last night called Vans, Vons, and Vaughns, I played the song “Jesus In a Camper Van” by Robbie Williams. After the first couple of questions a note appeared on my table which read as follows…

“+10 for obscure Robbie Williams Track. Achievement Unlocked!”

As self-conscious as I am about my musical choices sometimes, that was a nice validation. But you know what I had absolutely NO qualms about? Round 2! I remember watching The Muppet Show religiously every week with my parents when I was a kid. They really stuck with me, and I remember going to see the new Muppet Movie with my partner, best friend Brent, and his roommate, Terry. I had that same warm fuzzy feeling that I used to get when I would watch the show with my family back in the day, and I am not ashamed to admit I shed a few tears when they sang “Rainbow Connection.” I guess that song was a good choice as almost the entire bar yelled out “Awwww!” as I lowered the volume on it just before Round 3. Well, if you want it, it’s the Weezer version from that movie. (and in my opinion, the best version ever other than the original).

So what else did we talk about last night? We talked about Farmer stuff, and computer stuff, all in the same round, during which you guys rocked. We talked about modern slang terms, which you guys apparently know nothing about. We had a visual round on horror icons, which you guys did pretty well on, although I could accept the answer of “other Elvira” for Vampira.

We also talked about South Dakota and super viruses, which turned out to be a very high scoring round, but not nearly as high as the Casey Kasem round where you guys almost all got perfect scores.

All in all, it was a great night for quiz, and I had a great time hosting it for you (as per usual). Congrats to Swallow Ween Party (sounds oddly familiar… I think I was at one of those Saturday night…) for placing first, followed by Cowboys Vs. Indians – We Have No Skin In the Game and Annie’s Boobs.

And now for…

“Shit That Comes Out Of My Best Friend’s Mouth”

 

Speaking of Swallow Ween Parties… here is an exchange we had at my Halloween Party Saturday night.

 

*Our friend Mike walks up to us*

Him: What are you supposed to be?

Mike: I’m a redneck zombie.

In the dim light of the porch, his makeup looked a little bit like black-face

Him: Then why are you black?

Me: Oh my god, Brent. You can’t just ask someone why they’re black!

Him: *laughing hysterically*

 

See you guys next week!

Toodles!

See you at quiz!

That’s really the only nickname I can think of that actually fits me besides “Red,” “Ginger,” or “Firecrotch.” And I’ve been called those many times. I’ve also been called a Dork, but it’s never been a real nickname. The only real nicknames I’ve had were Paddycake (given to me by our old quizmaster Gene), and Paddy-O, given to me by my best friend. I actually really like those nicknames, so they can stay.

Anyhow, we had an entire round on sports nicknames, during which you guys really showed your prowess of identifying nicknames based on the clues given. Of course some were pretty easy. Anyone who grew up in the 80s would recognize William Perry as “Refrigerator” just from the name alone.

But anyway, to continue with the recap… We then went into a round on music with celestial bodies in their titles. You guys did pretty well, although a lot of you mistook Black Sabbath for Ozzy Osbourne, which is understandable since he used to be their singer. We Were Going To Use an Obscure Ebola Team Name, But You’re Not Going To Get It  did the best with 13 points. And that is also the last time I am typing their full team name. From now on, they will be known as Obscure Ebola.

Round 3 was all about current political battles and historic battles, and you had to tell me the state. I threw you guys for a loop when I said Dutch Harbor, which is not in Hawaii, but Alaska. Most of you did pretty well on everything else, though. Obscure Ebola, and Drunk, Naked, and Driving a Zamboni did the best with perfect scores.

Round 4 was all about Pie! One of my favorite things in the world. I make a pretty amazing apple ginger pie, if I do say so myself. Many of my friends can attest to how delicious it is. I’m sure it’s way more delicious that Minny’s poop pie from The Help. Key Limes are actually native to southeast Asia, and are still grown there, as well as the middle east. They are, in fact, known as a West Indian Lime. Anyway, Obscure Ebola, and Drunk, Naked, and Driving a Zamboni knew the most about pies, and lead the round with 7 points each.

Our visual round was all about sad characters that we tend to laugh at, instead of with. You know, people like Butters from South Park, or Zoidberg from Futurama. Admittedly the only two on that round I named without having to think about it. I guess that shows my penchant for animated comedy. Scores were lower than normal for a visual round, but you guys still made a good showing with scores averaging around 6.

Then we had our literary round about parents in books. Awesome job! Scores were way higher than I expected, which shows the place was full of book nerds. 5 teams got perfect scores on this round, which is the most of any round of the night. Kudos to you Obscure Ebola, Sandusky and Ebola: Bodily Fluids Everywhere, A Wretched Development, Cruisin For Ebola, and Pinkie Pies.

The second audio round was rather tough, it would seem. The average score of 5 was indicative of the fact that presidential danger/assassinations is not high on our knowledge list. And yes, there was no JFK in that round, which was surprising since it’s one of the most well-known presidential assassinations in American history.

Then we delved into random knowledge where we discussed feathery sports, things that the letter H stands for, Emmy winning actresses, Ramen Noodles, and top selling Blue Rays.

In the end, no one could catch Obsure Ebola as they sat on top for the entire game. Sandusky and Ebola: Bodily Fluids Everywhere snuck into the second place spot after a well placed joker, followed by another well placed joker from Drunk, Naked, and Driving a Zamboni.

See you guys next week!

For everything. But especially for Bryan Adams and Celine Dion… and maybe Shania Twain, but I kinda like her, so she can stay. Actually I kinda like Bryan Adams too. Ok, so mayb e I just blame them for Celine Dion… with their poutine (which is delicious), and colder weather, and marriage equality… those guys suck!

We had a whole round on recognizing Canadian things and people last night, and that was just one of the many things we learned at pub quiz last night… let’s have a look, shall we?

We started off with a wordplay round called Elementary, where all the answers began with “sher” or ended with “lock” I am pretty sure I stated that several times during the explanation, but that didn’t stop you from putting stuff down that didn’t fit those rules. Anyhow, we learned that She-Ra’s mild mannered alter ego was Adora (It’s funny, we were discussing this very thing a few days ago and couldn’t remember her name), Amontillado is sherry (which is gross if you have ever tasted it. What was the big deal about it?), and how fast was Brent with that bonus question? Holy crap!

Then we did our audio round, where we all learned that not many of you are familiar with artists that have backup bands, and the ones that were rocked the crap out of this round. The teams with near perfect scores and jokers to boot were Nurse Jackie Wouldn’t Catch Ebola, and Columbus Day Sale Means Just Take What You Want.

Then we had our round on Canadians, where we learned that it apparently gets very cold and icy in southern California, thus them being the home of Zamboni, THX is owned by George Lucas and is therefore NOT Canadian, Trivial Pursuit is a Canadian invention, as is Pamela Anderson, and Paul Anka (well, they can’t all be winners). Score were pretty average here, which tells me you guys were doing a lot of guessing. But that’s ok.

In honor of Columbus Day, we had our round 4 on Ninas, Pintos, Santas, and Marias, where we learned that Project Runway has been on the air for 10 fucking years, Frieda Pinto and Dev Patel have been dating for 6 years (buy a ring already, dude… damn!), and that Santa Fe is the oldest state capital in the country. Most of you did pretty well on this round, but Nurse Jackie Wouldn’t Catch Ebola and Columbus Day Sale Means Just Take What You Want lead the round with 7 points each.

Then we looked at pictures of movies that took place during The Great Depression. The biggest stumbling block was Cinderalla Man, which was commonly mistaken for Raging Bull. Hugo was missed a lot as well, which is a crying shame. Go watch that movie.

Then we separated the men from the boys with a round that was not just spitting out answers, but using your head to make portmanteaus of two answers. So we ended up with answers like “How To Get Away With Murder She Wrote,” and “What I Gotham.” Scores were pretty average, but Nurse Jackie Wouldn’t Catch Ebola lead the round with a respectable 7 points

Round 7 was all about couples who were fighting or getting divorced. It’s shocking how many of you missed Kramer vs. Kramer. I mean, it is the quintessential divorce movie. But anyway, you all knew Mrs. Doubtfire, so I guess I can forgive you a bit. Scores were rather low this round with Bouncy House Day Care leading the way with 6 points.

Throw in the random knowledge of round 8 and a shitload of jokers, and the game was done. In the end, no one could catch Nurse Jackie Wouldn’t Catch Ebola and they stayed on top all night, followed by Columbus Day Sale Means Just Take What You Want in second and Bouncy House Day Care in third.

And now for…

“Shit That Comes Out Of My Best Friend’s Mouth”

 

While walking down the aisle of a grocery store

Him: Shit!

Me: What is it?

Him: (as he runs into a stack of food) Shit knee foo!

Me: What the fuck? Is that some new form of martial arts?

Him: *laughing* I don’t know where that came from…

 

See you all next week!

Toodles!
