Only Slightly Better Than Being Beaten OFF With Your Own Wooded Leg
Fap 5ive Fretty

Imagine the splinters! Just going to bust out a quick one this week, cuz I gots shit to do. The team that got the most done last night was Planned Parenthood Now Serving Baby Back Ribs, who not only took first, but also showed up with the team name of the night; it’s tasteless and disgusting and I love it. Good job, team. Oh shit, I gotta go, my Duber is here. Duber is like Uber but you can blaze all the cannabis you want while riding in it. Except I just made that up. But I should really make that an actual thing. It’s an idea just stupid enough to make me rich enough to die from a drug overdose. I’ll see y’all next week!

So, I was about to write about last night’s quiz, but something more interesting happened in the last 24 hours. WE DISCOVERED GRAVITATIONAL WAVES, BITCHES!!!!! Okay, to be fair, when I say “we,” I sure as fuck don’t me you dolts. I mean, for fucks sake, some of you guys think that Alec Baldwin won an Best Actor Oscar. (WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot!!!!) And to be more fair, when I say “we,” I don’t mean me either. I mean, yeah, sure, it’s way likely to be involved somehow in this discover than you dullards. I mean, sure, Chicago may have their own “Miracle Mile,” but for fucks sake, their is no “Wilshire Boulevard”

a concert geek - live music rocks! (pun intended)

a live theatre geek - it's just a better value than the going to the cinema at this point

a musical theatre geek -more than an straight man rightfully should be

a political geek - it's a much better bloodsport than the MMA

a pop culture geek - grew up as a latch-key child, so TV was my babysitter

Wanted, DOA: The Team That Confused Creed With Pearl Jam
Matt

Greetings Exchangerinos! Tonight, we allocated time for some alphabetized answers, flipped through some famous folks who are somehow still with us, and corralled up a few questions on cowboys and London’s East End. Care for a spot of tea, pardner? We had a doozy of a dead heat moving into the final rounds of our quiz, and sure enough, ended up needing a tiebreaker to determine second place. After a sudden death question on the opening weekend box office for The Force Awakens, the rep from Tell That to Kanja Klub (appropriately donned with a pretty dope Kylo t-shirt) force-pushed his team to 2nd. But the two fine folks of High & Dry were graciously

Meat and Quiz are Murder
Major Tom

Today is Manager Mitch's birthday. Did you wish him a happy birthday last night at Quiz? If you didn't, you made him sad. This is the sort of thing that drives a man to listen to Morrissey. Mitch is a sad man. So sad, in fact, that not only does he listen to Morrissey, but he has Morrissey tattoos, and he flies all over the country to see Morrissey play in concert. Is there anything else quite that sad? You would probably say that there is not. You would be wrong. I think we can all agree that heavy metal is the greatest music in the world, yeah? Well, Mitch feels inadequate sometimes because so many of you forget to do things like wish him a happy birthday. So, to compensate, he listens to

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Snow Doesn't Stop Us!
Justin

Fellow GWD,   Snow did not stop our usual teams from coming out and playing! We even had a new team this week, thanks for joining us PS! We had ourselves another great quiz, coming down to the final round. (I was hoping for another SUDDEN DEATH) However, the 8th round tested each teams strengths as well as their weakest subjects. As a fellow quizzer, I love those kind of rounds. We are out at Frank's every Wednesday (Except the 1st of every month) in South Bend, Indiana! Hope to you see you soon! Make sure you come up with a clever/funny team name! There is a PRIZE for the winner!   QM Justin

If You're Not First or Second, You're Third
AlexRice

We had three teams that really separated themselves from the pack Wednesday night - The Annexation of Puerto Rico, Phone a Friend? and Prostate of the Uterus, all of whom were at least 17 points ahead of our other 10 teams. Unfortunately there's no prize for a close third, so Prostate of the Uterus (who have added the "Pro" since their last visit) were the odd man out. Annexation and Phone's (their second straight appearance in the money) impressive 75 and 73 point totals, however, won them $25 and $15 gift cards, respectively. Am I the only one who hadn't heard about the Woo Guy until the quiz? If he took inspiration from

Maybe Injun' Joe Is Racist?
EricBenner

So this week's summary is gonna be short and sweet as it went like many quizzes do at the Marco Polo. Jessie & The Minutia Men led from start-to-finish, and A Team Named Slickback fought valiantly for a strong second place finish after leading the whole way last week. Congrats to both and to the strong scores to the other three teams that participated this week. Now on to the notes! Notes: - I was impressed with the bonus question knowledge this week! Usually I don't encourage folks to pre-guess Quiet Riot, but hell it worked well this week! Also didn't like Cary Elwes or Glory would be that familiar with folks but again

How can one be "in a Pickle?"
Chaz_Bazz

I was watching a Ted Talk today and it was talking about comedy. Usually when I make a joke it has levels. Within the video they were talking about Pickles. I thought to myself "One can be in a Pickle, right?" So then what if you drew somebody as a Pickle and said "well I hope they get out of this situation some how". Ha ha? Quiz was lots of fun last night. I don't know how I didn't know there was a English Civil War but it seems like a lot of places to get to a better government had to do it at some point in their country's History. Speaking of England; you know that the first Harry Potter book has a different name there than it does here right? Here it's the Sorcerer's Stone

Le Black House
QM Jarrad

I was rewatching Empire Records the other day. That hallmark of 90’s cinema that artfully blended pop culture with existentialism and starred Liv Tyler and Renne Zellweger. It was a pretty bad movie but not bad to have on as background noise. Anyway, why do I bring this up? Why do I bring anything up…because I’m growing senile in my old age. My senility doesn’t seem to keep away the GWD faithful though as another packed house was ready to partake in pub quizzin’ on Crown Hillin’. Also, my frustrations with my 49 cent microphone at least gives the crowd something to laugh at. Maybe once I save enough scratch for a new mic, we can hang the old

Hey you, how are you? Thanks for clicking my name. Very thoughtful of you.

So, let's see, what do you want to know? Hmm. I took a four month trip around the world last year and saw really cool cities like Bangkok, Phnom Penh, Amman, Budapest, Sofia and Reykjavik. I like beer a lot. I've been drinking nothing but Founders All Day IPA lately since they released the 15 pack for $16!

I also recently discovered the Professor Blastoff podcast and have become obsessed with it. So at any given time, I'm either listening to it or thinking about something funny that happened in one of the episodes. And yes, I can rap just using my body.

Did your favorite celebrity from our visual round deadpool survive the night? I hope so! Last night featured a megateam, a team that played one round, some drunken children, and everything in between. Our rounds ranged from woooooos, East London, Cowboys  (and yes chaps are assless, actually anything can be assless if you try hard enough), civil wars and more. There were movies and bands with the same name and we all remembered a point has zero dimensions (except time). Of our 6 teams, The

It Was Not A Civil War!!!
The Grand Lord Octavius

Hello my loyal quizzers.  So lets have a quick history lesson. There was a certain conflict in American history when we had a nice and big fight over Slavery and a couple of other things that southern apologists have tried to shoehorn in there afterwards. Anyway, the point being that the conflict we had was not a civil war. Not at all. See a civil war is when two factions fight over control of a singular government. A secession war on the other hand, is where a faction tries to remove itself from under the governance of another. Now that we have those definitions straight, which one most closely matches the hulabuloo we had with Mr. Lincoln and Robert E. Lee?

Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...

Gawd I love that movie.

So what can I say about myself, Im an avid Transformers buff, Id say I have roughly 300+ pieces in my collection and it grows by the week.  I currently work full time for Star Trac Logistics which basically means I do the work of 3 guys while getting paid for 1 mans work.

I been Quizmaster since December of 2010ish and its only getting better, so when IM not scouring the toy shops or quizzing, or working for the Man.

So not only do i Love Transformers, I have and extensive collecting of 80's Movies as well as music.

I karaoke as much as possible and I don't want toot my own horn, but I got a set of pipes on me.

As far as my softer side, I do enjoy live theatre and try to perform as much as possible myself, whether it be in a musical or stage play, but I also try to do Improv.

Yes just like "Whose Line".

 

So let me sign off by saying this,

 I don't need any of this. I don't need this stuff, and I don't need *you*. I don't need anything. Except this. 

And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray... And this paddle game. - The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need...

And this remote control. - The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need...

And these matches. - The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball... And this lamp. - The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too.

I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.
 The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, and this magazine, and the chair.

 And I don't need one other thing, except my dog.

I don't need my dog.

"Harrison Ford Movie". Not That One. Or That One. Or That One.
Please don't call me Matt. I hate that.

The movie Witness came up at Quiz last night and since I know I have seen it but it was about 25 years ago I went ahead and looked it up on the IMDB to see how well it’s holding up in the new millennium. First I was struck by the fact that it has a solid 7.5 rating, and an Oscar nom for Mr. Ford, so I guess I should give it another look-see. Second I was struck by the fact that apparently the Amish community didn’t approve of their portrayal in the film and actually called for a boycott. The Amish. Called for a boycott. Of a movie. Isn’t that like the Amish boycotting iPhones or Dodge trucks? Can you boycott something that your religion/lifestyle

He is working on the formula for making that perfect world happen, but until then you'll just have to settle for that one night a week.

When no otherwise preoccupied with work or shit like that you can find him cursing at the Rockies game on the vintage radio in his garage while he pretends to be productive with a bike or some such, or just walking around.

If you want to give him a gift his favorite things in the world are anything vintage, baseball-related, or Italian. He also accepts cash.

Woo Zsa Zsa!
Cousin Chet

It’s always a gamble when we do rounds about people we thought were dead who aren’t. Last night had me freaking out. Mainly because of one little lady, Zsa Zsa Gabor. Not only did she turn 99 the other day, but she got hospitalized the day before the quiz. You better know that I waited until the very last minute to print that visual round. And I was going to be really pissed if she died between the time that I printed it. But she didn’t die! And she will probably never die. Because she is immortal. I didn’t notice the woo guy at the Super Bowl on Sunday. That might be because I was really drunk. You support your team your way and I’ll support my team mine.
