Yes, I am the one in the picture you think I am. 

 

Hey sucka. I haven't updated this in a while sucka. Sucka. Come to Miller's Ale House every Weds at 8 pm, sucka. Suckafish. 

What gives with those guys? They have the

  • balls
  • bravado
  • flour (which is a nicer way of saying balls, I made up)
  • courage

 to call themselves "Wonka" and yet just make a bunch of standard candy. Willy Wonka invented candy that was so off the wall, or on the wall (lickable wall paper.)

But lets tear the real Wonka candy company a new one peice by piece. Do you get my joke? 

  • Nerds? They are just hard small round pieces of sugar. SO CREATIVE. 
  • Laffy Taffy? Yeah, famous candymaker Willy Wonka got his status by soliciting Dixie riddle level jokes from 8 year olds. I'd like to think the people writing those in are so poor they live with all four grandparents in one bed. 
  • The Wonka Bar. Well, I guess I can't shit on that too much, it was made famous in the movie and it was just normal chocolate. But you know, where's the golden ticket? How have they not done a promotion like that? Because you would be disappointed to see the factory and all the Oompa Loompas would just be Mexican women with hairnets? 
  • Gobstoppers? Hardly, everlasting. 

OK, so not every company is making a taffy rope with nerds in it, but that's a far cry from fizzy lifting drinks. They are totally capatalizing off the creativity of someone who was way more creative to a fantastical level. There's no fantasy in the real candy, what a bunch of hacks.

Oh shit, I do kind of love Shock Tarts.

And if I had to say something nice about them. They did create this popsicle that looks like a banana and you can actually peel it. And the banana part is ice cream. So maybe they are on the right track. But really, Roald Dahl must be having a sugar fit in his grave right now. How do they even have the rights?

They fucking use the slogan "what will he think of next?" I dunno, something substandard?  

The Alabama team won the tiebreaker.

I forgot what happens after that but we had a lot of stuff repeated in tonight's quiz.  I personally love when that happens because it makes people go wait a minute.

Who would have thought there would be multiple questions on the HBO series "Band of Brothers?" I should rewatch that, that was awesome. I think I was busy at that time discovering Adult Swim. Ah, high school.

Also the summer after high school I first saw Batman Begins. Which was kind of the most awesome of the three (I know, I know.) But we had all sorts of Batman questions. Dark Knight, Tom Hardy, J-Godom Levitt.

Joseph Gordon Levitt-or-Leave-it, we had a whole round on letters in the Star Spangled Banner. Whoop whoop? Did you guys know that Francis Scott Key and F. Scott Fitzgerald were related? His name is no accident. 

So yeah, we came, we quizzed. There were Australians. There were questions on Austria. Man, this is the most normal blog I've written in a while.

It's good to be back here.

I love it when there are multiple funny and unfortunately incorrect wrong answers. I think we hit the jackpot with this one:

It was a question about the Denzel Washington movie "Man on Fire" and was asking about the Dakota Fanning character. Turns out her name is the same as something in a falafel. 

We had a few Tahinis. 

One person said Chickpea (not bad.) 

One person even said tzatziki (Dats a gyro, bro)

The answer: Pita

It makes sense. 

My Duh...what round turns out was really really hard. As it often is. And we had another inadvertant duh what in r7. Who said "Stealing is wrong in Mean Girls?" Wasn't there a Lindsay Lohan stealing issue. Or she just walked off a photoshoot with the thousands of dollar jewlery they put on her and didn't pay for it? Stealing man, it can't even escape the richest. Unless I just made up she stole something...but she did...I think.

Dire Straits is a band I really like but I never liked "Money For Nothing." It just sounds like a super half baked song where Mark Knopfler really turns into a three-cord-Charley. And then got Sting to sing on it where he just copies "Don't Stand So Close to Me" with "I Want My MTV." And also wasn't that song controversial for saying "faggot?" I know, he was doing that Randy Newman thing.

We learned it's "Reddit Gold" which I always thought sounded like some kind of bit-coined currency usable on Reddit. It's just their cool service. I like Reddit. This blog is over.
