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.  

Hi, old friends. Welcome back to another winter in the Pacific Northwest. You thought you had it made with a sunny late summer, but you know that’s not going to last. You know the constant chill and overcast skies are going to drive you into the arms of your two best friends: alcohol and questions regarding useless knowledge. And that’s why I do this…for you. I love you. Kinda.

Tonight was the return of The Joke Off! The same audience that booed a Ray Rice team name applauded a 9/11 joke by Now You’ve Hit The Fig Time all the way to third place glory.

The More We Know:

  • New York doesn’t lie above the 41st parallel. Teams that thought they could get two birds with that one stone…you have done goofed.
  • Castrati, or the young boys who had their balls cut off to sing perfect soprano, is still a disturbing idea to some. Guys, it was in the name of art. I’m sure Lance Armstrong has a lovely singing voice.
  • Whoopsie Goldberg’s real name is actually Whoopi. Can’t make this stuff up…

Best Worst Answers:

  • I guess, technically, “Airrowsmith” is a correct answer, but…come on.
  • If you wrote down that the detective on “The Mentalist” was John Mentalist, you get the spirit award. Congrats.
  • The number of people that didn’t know the name of LMFAO’s hit single is staggering. I would’ve guaranteed that those guys were headed for timeless legend status.

Team Name Hall O’ Fame:

  • Donald Trumps Bishes - Is there a guy named Donald on the team? And if so, is he better than “bishes” thereby “trump”ing them? This name confused everyone in the immediate area and therefore become my number one favorite.
  • Christopher Walken Closet - Hot puns in the summertime.
  • Ray Rice’s Greatest Hits - This took equal parts courage and insensitivity. Hell, who am I kidding, it took way more insensitivity. But it got the biggest reaction of the night, so it’s settling in here.

Equality Bonus Name!

  • Mr. & Dr. Dooogie Howser – Congrats, Neil. Your love and happiness almost makes up for the last season of “How I Met Your Mother”.

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.  

Oh my goodness gracious…where do I begin? On my walk to quiz tonight I saw one guy that looked like a muscular, tattooed version of Vince Gilligan and another guy that looked like a chubby, bearded version of Dave Navarro. These are good signs, right? I have no idea, but they made me smile, so I took them as such.

The power of trivia was nothing compared to the draw of one of the final summer days of the year. Come on! The sun is only going away for 11 months, you wimps! You’re acting like a bunch of Kal-Els. (Is that racist? I can never tell.)

Two teams tonight and they both showed up like Kevin Costner: For the Love of the Game. “Fuck You” is Right, CeeLo Green contested their second place, but in the end, my grading skills were flawless (as they always are), and Li’l Met’l Bott’l Tops came out on top by a single point.

Also, a player was missing during the photography session, which gave me the opportunity to perfect the selfie. Eat your heart out, Ellen:

          


The More We Know:

  • The word “wiener” actually comes from Vienna. I’m sure the good people of the Austrian capitol would be proud of the “wiener tit” graffiti that adorns trash bins in my hometown. (Hi Erick.)
  • The Cub Scouts feeble little motto is “Do Your Best.” Well, I was in the Cub Scouts and I did do my best, but it just wasn’t good enough for you, was it, Dad? Was it?!
  • Is there a difference between a safety and a free safety in football? If there is, I don’t know what it is and neither do these teams. Points for everyone!

Best Worst Answers:

  • Both teams thought that the group that did “I’ve Got the Power” was Public Enemy. Yikes. It takes a nation of millions to get this wrong…amiright?
  • One team thought that “Wayne’s World 2” was “Wayne’s World”! What a bunch of dummies.

No, I’m just kidding. Both teams got perfect scores on the video round. I’m just struggling to come up with entries to this category because both teams were completely capable. Good job!

Team Name Hall of Fame:

 Once again, this category is rendered moot, so I’ll just say that yes, CeeLo is human garbage and yes, using a cockney accent will never not be fun.

 

Happy September!

One whole year of writing blogs. And you’d think I would’ve gotten better at it. And another thing about my one-year anniversary, how come there wasn’t a gigantic marble ice-cream cake waiting for me with one of those little plastic “1” candles sitting on top? Un. Grateful.

Holy Moley, what a quiz! At the beginning of round 25, The Ratfinks and All Our In-Laws Are Outlaws were neck ‘n’ neck for the top spot among all 46 teams. But in the end, Cthulhu Plus pulled out the win, with Jurassic Parks & Rec kissing the silver, and the lovely Mandelbrot Set rounding out the top three. And Mandelbrot gets a big shoutout for taking a quiz refugee into their team, even though she had to leave halfway through to catch a flight to Germany. (Really? That was the best you could come up with?)
