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?)

I don't have a Twitter, I don't have a blog, and none of my Facebook friends are real friends. So, essentially this is my only outlet for the stupid thoughts that enter my mind. Here's the latest entry:

I want to live in a world where child labor laws are so strict that kids can't even act in TV shows or movies. So all children parts have to be played by adults. Like a Mexican soap opera.

On to the quiz. How do you know summer's over? When nine fucking teams show up! The band of merry figs showed up were looking like a bunch of amateurs until the end when they came through and trounced the competition. Competition....you get an A for effort.  

The More We Know:

  • Every Dave Mattews song sounds the same. Maybe this doesn't belong here, but I don't have a "Reinforced Knowledge" section. Sorry.
  • "True Blood" is apparently a show for full-grown adults. Had me fooled...
  • Larry King is old as shit. Maybe it is time to start that "Reinforced Knowledge" section.

Best Worst Answers:

  • Confusing Bruce Springsteen with John Mellencamp is a problem plaguing over 60% of Top 40 Radio listeners. Please help.
  • On the other side of that coin, before tonight, NO ONE has ever confused the Insane Clown Posse with Justin Bieber. I can add "Don't text your grandmother for answers" to the rules if I need to.
  • And when asking for the name of an actress from "All in the Family", a good half of the teams wrote down Edith Bunker. You guys know she wasn't a real person, right?

Team Name Hall of Fame:

  • Aussies at Ozzie's - The fact that until the final two rounds you spelled Aussies with two "Z"s shows me just how Australian you are.
  • Ben Franklinstein - I cannot resist a good play on words. I can't!
  • I Liked It Better When Ferguson Annoyed Clarissa - Topical, controversial, and a Millennial referenace...this name has it all.
