Not so long ago, I was on a team playing quiz and we ruled the school. My personal areas of expertise were both audio rounds, anything involving movies, and American history. One night, I was the only guy in the bar who knew the name of the current prime minister of England.

We placed first almost every week. So often that it became stale and I needed a new challenge. So instead of angering fellow geeks by besting them, I decided I would anger them by doing the asking. So I became a quizmaster and I've been pissing them off ever since.  

Showing up to Ozzie’s at 5:45, I felt like I stepped through a wormhole back to Kansas. Camo baseball caps to the left of me, sleeveless John Deere tees to the right. Turns out that country music sensation Eric Church was playing at Key Arena, a mere three blocks away. Good times and good people, though. I even got a high five!

The More We Know:

  • Sidney Poitier won an Oscar, but not for directing “Ghost Dad”.
  • Phil Collins’ “You’ll Be In My Heart” beat out Aimee Mann’s “Save Me” for Best Original Song Oscar in 2000, which, I shouldn’t have to tell you, is a damn crime.
  • Toasted ravioli was apparently created in St. Louis. So Missouri, I take back everything I ever said about you.

Best Worst Answers:

  • Someone put down “Ben Hurr” during the video round, which, there has to be a Nellly-centered remake in the works, right?
  • “Fat Albert’s Tomb” may well be the next Royal Albert Hall…provided the allegations against Mr. Cosby are dropped.
  • The number of people that mistook Billy Joel for Elton John in the audio round is…probably the same amount of people that went to see them together in concert.

Team Name Hall O’ Fame:

  • Please Don’t Take Me To Church - Roasting Eric, Hozier, and waking up early on Sunday in one fell swoop.
  • The – An avant garde choice which I felt was encouraged by the way I was pressuring everyone into choosing a name.
  • Pantsuits 2016 – The fashion choice we deserve.

We’ve finally reached that time of year when the sun shines into the bar during the first half of quiz. Feels weird. But, at the same time, I can actually read what I’m saying. And you can probably read what you’re writing. You can also finally differentiate if that’s Marlon Brando or Annette Benning in the visual round.

 

Then the sun sets, and the full moon rises. Well, technically it wasn’t a full moon tonight, but how else could you explain the sounds heard during karaoke?

 

So, quiz. We had seven teams, all with interesting names (who is Kevin anyway?). I’d like to say the battle was heated, but after tallying up the scores, it wasn’t even close. I blame the sports round. I think the intensity reached peak levels when quizzers started debating whether or not Linkin Park was a good band. Me personally? I think they’re still finding their footing and we haven’t seen the best of them yet. Chew on that for the week.

Can we all agree that horse cops are completely pointless these days? I’m not talking about horses that are actually cops, but mounted police. It’s like having a police car that’s slower, more unpredictable, and shits where it pleases. Let me explain: I was walking by one on the sidewalk today and the thing just rears up in my direction. Completely terrifying. If not for my quick reflexes, I would have been writing this from the other side. So, please just give me one reason why we still need horse cops.

Wait, I just realized that if we didn’t have them, there would be no “Half Baked”. Nevermind, horse cops…we’re all good.

What does this have to do with quiz? I think there was a horse question in there, right?

The More We Know:

  • “Lady Cop” was a DC comic about hero whose powers were being a lady and being a cop.
  • Marge Simpson became a cop in “The Springfield Connection”, episode 23 in season six of “The Simpsons”. In the episode, she gives homer a parking ticket and busts a counterfeit jeans ring being run out of The Simpsons’ car hole.
  • Orson Welles: Loves frozen peas, loves Transformers.

Best Worst Answers:

  • I think there’s only one German chancellor that has a Midwest capital named for him, but I would still totally vote for Otto von Topeka.
  • Is it bad that I still counted “Gary Ohlman” as a correct answer? That’s what happens when your name is never above the title on posters.
  • And for the Creed song, one team put down “With Eyes Wide Open”. God, what I wouldn’t give to be that unfamiliar with the song.

Team Name Hall O’ Fame:

  • O’Trivia Newton John – garnered an audible response from the crowd.
  • I Pity The April Fool! – Was not drunk enough to do the Mr. T voice tonight.
  • Indiana Cocksuckers – Topical. Or is it bottomical?
