Aaron's been quizmastering since before you were born. He's occasionally hilarious when he's not being sort of a dick. Things that make him giggle include: Li'l Jon; gamboling puppies; the word "oatmeal." No idea why. He's doing preeeeeetty well for himself, thank you.

A lot of times when reading answers, especially when it's short, I'll give the answer and then repeat it a few times for emphasis. It's a trick I learned at the Letterman School of Being Mildly Entertaining, and often takes place when there's less than a wow factor to the answer. So, for example, I'll go, "Milk," and then a few seconds later, "Milk, milk, milk." (And then, if I like the way it feels to say the word, like a toddler discovering "helicopter" for the first time, I'll just repeat the shit out of it: "Milkmilkmilkmilkmilkmilk." This makes me borderline autistic, probably.) My point is that this doesn't play at all when the answer is the letter K, because the crowd can't hear my mental commas: "K,K,K." Sigh.

Fall is here, you guys! It's all crisp and shit out! Leaves! Punkins! Elections! It's the best! And to illustrate that, we had a nice, full house last night at McCabe's, where people apparently got over their week-before doldrums and crammed in. Spirits were high. I can tell because I was asked, "Do you want tit?" when taking pictures. You might think this is something I am asked quite often, pub quiz being the Astroglide-filled hot tub of hedonist wonders it is, but no, not so much. So I blushed and said, "No, thank you, ma'am" like a Webelo from the '60s and went on my way. But did I? Did I want tit? This is a question for the ages, and one you and I cannot hope to answer here today. So let's move on:

Bwahaha, Unitarian Jihad didn't even win. They lost, in fact, if you consider missing out on first place by one point to be a loss, which I do. Nailing them up was Brainiac X, my heroes. And in third: Los Pollos Hermanos, who play all the damn time and never win, so good on them.

Like I said, we had a pretty full house, but everybody scampered off quick, many too quickly for me to get a picture, which is sad because everyone was so happy and attractive and I wanted to use those pictures for this collage I'm making THAT YOU SHOULD STOP ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT ALREADY, IT'S FOR MY PRIVATE USE. Ahem. Good day.

You guuuuuys, it's fall now. Aaaaand, we had kind of a quiet night at McCabe's yesterday, perhaps due to the equinox and perhaps due to the teevees being back on with new episodes of that show where the guy is all "baboonga!" or whatever and it's pretty funny, you should check it out, I don't do a really good job of explaining it, and not all all due to the fact that the previous week I played a Billy Joel song 40 times in a row, because that would be redonkulous.

Aaaaand, uh, fall? The news is that Brian, who smells like a fart that just ate a dirty diaper, is moving to Denver. He was on a team called the Betas who used to be good at pub quiz. But now they're not so he has to move away to drink glasses of diarrhea for breakfast. Also, Ha(i)l(i)e(y), our longtime cocktail waitress on Wednesday nights, is moving on to find greener pastures and follow Phish full-time, or something. We'll miss them both, until in like three weeks one of their names comes up in a conversation and we'll be all, "Who?" and they'll be totally forgotten. The point is, never leave me.

So, the quiz. I found that sucker last night to be easy as pie, and most of all y'all did, too. Especially stupid Unitarian Jihad, who won again because they're stupid. Also especially My iPhone 6 is Bent Like Retka's Mom. The joke's on you guys, though, because my mom is only bent because of the tumors on her scoliosis, and when she gets her settlement from that company that makes the medicated back braces that gave her spinal cancer, we're totally going to Dollywood, and you're not invited. Also, The Band's Back Together came in third.

Last night at McCabe's we all learned the value of putting up with my existing playlist. A week earlier, stupid Unitarian Jihad took issue with my Steely Dan and Aerosmith and, occasionally, Lightning Bolt, so they got their just desserts, in the form of me putting "We Didn't Start The Fire" on repeat all night. This devious, devilish and admittedly totally stupid plan took form earlier in the day and I giggled about it for hours. Like, literally giggled. Like an effete cartoon villain who probably has a go-cart that turns into a helicopter so I can make good my escape while tittering: "Hee! Pasternak! Prokoviev! Heeeeeee!"

So an eleventh-hour 'splosion means that there's not a full scoreboard, only the top three that I actually remember. Sorry about that. I can tell you that Breasts, Beer and Beards were probably in 4th place. And Blood Sweat and Beers made their best showing ever and were somewhere in there too. And Pat Sajak's Vowel Movement straight-up suuuuucked. No cry, Sajak. Tomorrow is another day. But our top three: Unitarian Blah Blah Whatever, Brainiac X—who last night bifurcated into two teams, the Y-titled one of which didn't do so hot—and True Love Waits ... For Disappointment, whose name is the saddest line of all from "Princess Bride," or the BDSM porn version of "The Princess Bride," called "The Princess Tied," they all did okay.

Another thing that happened is that I asked some questions and people answered them, sometimes correctly and sometimes not. It's this thing we do every week. L8ers!
