What if Bill Cosby were Mormon…
Woody

Oh the fun we could have with this question:  Because of that group's fondness for a certain Kraft dessert, The Mormon Corridor is also nicknamed the “WHAT” Belt? Answer:  Jell-O This came from a round on geographic belts… which brings me to another question from that round:  Escanaba, Michigan is in a "Banana Belt," because it's warmer than the rest of what detached region? Answer:  Upper Peninsula Exactly how much warmer is the lower part of Michigan compared to the Upper Peninsula to be deemed the “Banana Belt”???  Do they grow bananas there???    Favorite Round:  Round

The Farrelly Brothers Aren't That Funny
Nickolaus Guzman

Now there are some redeeming moments in just about every Farrelly Brothers movie, but that is just barely, not like it makes a significant change to my feelings about their movies.  I am going to exclude both Kingpin and the first Dumb and Dumber movies because the freshman and sophmoric entries in their early directing catalog were rather amazing and backed by a solid cast and grasp of comedy.  Everything else though....not that good. I remember watching There's Something About Mary and thinking to my thirteen year old self that this was pretty funny.  I mean balls get stuck in a zipper, cum get pushed into some hair, there are retard jokes and Brett Farve shows up

This is the Place Where We Are.
Jake

Hey, people. Here I am, on my two year anniversary as Quizmaster at Shanahan’s. Where did the time go? Wednesday is back to school, and it’s ugly rainy out, and what’s is up with this humidity? It’s bonkers. Still many of my favorite quizzers came to play, including the old-school-I-haven’t-seem-them-in-forever Revenge of Quiz in My Pants. Round 1 had answers featuring the same amount of syllables as the number of the question. The bonus question was nine syllables long, and while one of the members of Lab Rats almost got the answer, she didn’t get the whole nine syllables of Epic

In a land far, far away, in a time in the not-too-distant future, in an era dominated by dragons, one man was born - nay - created - nay - FORGED from the fires of Valhella (which is part Valhalla, part... well, you get it), and came upon this earth seeking geeks, not for punching, but in order to be a part of their geekery. He searched far, wide, deep, across, shallow and even in the fourth dimension for eons until he came upon the great city of Portland, where the geeks flowed like PBR. "Get thee to a nerdery!" they cried, and it was here that the man struck his mighty staff into the earth with the force of a million bluebirds carrying a thousand hippopotami carrying twenty-three tanks, and the earth opened upon to him, releasing the demonspawn of Australia, which all happened to be drunk upon Foster's. After defeating them with his vorpal sword of might, he descended upon Portland (and related metropolitan area) to take his place at the throne of geeks. He made slaves of many, including Jake, who runs pub quizzes!

Blaine Capatch, Mission Impossible: Talc Marley
@adammanski

Quizzers, I pulled a “The Fat Jew” and stole some jokes from Blaine Capatch. If you don’t get that reference read a TMZ article. I hope you liked the ads as filler on the rounds. I’ll see if I can come up with some of my own so then I’m just stealing the concept.  It is sooooo hot again. What is up with that? You know where it’s not hot? The Indo and my comfortable nest of a bedroom, but It’s hard to write the blog in the Indo and I can’t write it in my room because Comcast, my roommates, or some sort of demigod has destroyed the Wi-Fi at my place. So I am in a coffee house here in downtown Salem, that I got to walk to and it is BALLS HOT

Black Pants, Brown Belt
SonyaDee

Did you know that before the 1920s, men wore belts generally for decoration only? It was only until fashion lowered the waistline that belts were needed to help keep one’s pants on. Did you know that the Mormon Corridor is nicknamed the Jell-O Belt because residents of Salt Lake City eat TWICE AS MUCH Jell-O than the national average, and mostly Lime Jell-O? Weirdos. This was by far my most favorite quiz I have hosted. The bar was full of rowdy fun folks, and the quiz rounds themselves were some of the most inventive I have seen so far. I really loved the round with the increasing-syllable answers. But the most fun one had to be “Historical Missed Connections”

Reni Calister

The chicken tinga burrito was ON POINT LAST NIGHT, GET IT TAP ROOM 307. There were 50 people from some Cornell thing in the bar last night, but we persevered. Don't be fooled.  The QUIZLAMIC STATE owned the quiz last night, this crew was on absolutely fire! It wasn't until the 4th round that they finally missed some questions. It's OK, Quizlamic State, you passed with flying covers.   In second came THE PINK SOX. Something you should know about these boys, is that no matter who wins (even themselves), they yell CHEATERS. I have never met such a group of spoil sports, but we love them to bits. Plus, they always take a loser shot at the end of the night. Great

Leave Kanye Alone!!!!
dsnarr

In honor of our winning team, Kanye/Trump 2020, I’m gonna share some opinions you probably won't agree with. 10 Years ago today, Kanye West told the world that George W. Bush didn’t care about black people. He was right.  A few years later Kanye rushed the stage at the VMAs, stealing Taylor Swift’s precious little moment, and told the world the truth: that Beyonce deserved that award, not Taylor Swfit.  Nobody even remembers what video T-Swift was given that award for, but every single one of us knows that Beyonce’s snubbed video was Single Ladies. We all remember that it was shot in black in white, and that she

The First Step to Enlightenment is Getting the App
QM Colleen

My brother introduced me to quite possibly one of the nerdiest games/apps you could conceive of. This game is called Ingress. So basically it's kind of a capture the flag, scavenger hunt sort of game but the really awesome thing about it is - the map is the world. The real world. The app is basically a GPS that shows a map of your location but also overlays features that are part of the gameplay on that map. There are two sides, the Resistance and the Enlightened, whose goal is to capture and connect portals that exist at real life landmarks. I won't get into the lore but portals are generally locations of note and/or works of art. What I love most about the game is its physicality.

Colleen is a Rochester native with a heart of gold. Icy, icy gold. You can find her at Wall Street every Tuesday night and occasionally on a stage somewhere else in Rochester. Doing theater. Not stripping. She would be the most awkward of strippers. Think Danny Devito on Friends and then quadruple the awkward. Got the mental image? Good. She also plays Ultimate Frisbee and if you are vewy,vewy quiet you can catch her galavanting around RIT campus.

Not at Burning Man
Drizzle

So yeah I'm here and there are tens of thousands of my best friends I never met living it up out in Black Rock City. So needless to say I've been a bit home sick this week. I was sitting there waiting for all you lovely people to get to the venue, thinking about how I wasn't covered in dust and this was the first year since I started being the amazing Quiz Master I am that I wasn't having to have a sub come in and rock it with you guys. Its a really strange feeling of FOMO knowing just what it is you're missing out on. But don't you worry my little quizzlings I'll be just fine! Now I won't be making it home but I will be headed out to the California desert to get my party on

In my spare time (when I'm not learning how to say impossible names and places) I Brew beer, hunt, fish, cook, drink, burn, root for the 49ers, read, walk the dog and play with myself. 

I think that ought to be enough to scare most people away from my personal life ;)

WOOO!s are for Winners

Hey Everyone! Last night’s PubQuiz was great! While I normally focus on delightful questions during PubQuiz, I have to utilize this post to talk about the colorful (and adorable) teams we had last night. We had a tremendous party of 12 people, and they decided the best way to bond would be to split up and go head-to-head in a trivia battle royale. I gotta be honest, that sounds awesome.  The teams were Fast Thinkers and Just Because.  I initially believed that these teams were evenly matched, but with a closer look, it’s

The White House Playlist Needs More Attitude.
Gallifreak

Summer is winding down and it was awesome when I noticed that as we were leaving for quiz tonight, the temperature didn't rival that of the surface of the sun, and there was gasp a nice cool breeze! I can't wait for the cooler weather to come. This Canadian has had about all he can take of the summer. So we got to have a listen to the White House Spotify playlist. I've gotta say, there's some nice traks on there. But it was definitely missing some Ramones. Sly and the Family Stone is a great selection, don't get me wrong, but if you're going to be listening to music while authorizing the latest wave of drone strikes, you may as well get some punk rock in there to help

Who's Ready For School?..Not this Guy!
Wavie

With another Tuesday in the books and the school year quickly approaching, there was choice but for all the teams to go all out and see who could possibly come out on top. Something Distinctive Without Bobby and The Olsen Conjoined Quintuplets were in it for the long all as shown by their past outings, whereas our other competitors were aiming to do their best to get in the topic of conversation. Impressively, The Lone Geek was able to gain 43.5 points (6th place out of 7) by his lonesome, which goes to show the strength of one solid mind! Other teams should either beware or look to add this man to your arsenal. With that being said, when the final scores were tallied SDWB were

I Don't Like the Drugs, But the Drugs Like Me

I appreciate that people pointed out English is technically a foreign language in America, and Eli Whitney didn’t actually invent the cotton gin, he just took credit for it. Kudos for that. Sort of speaking of which, It’s McKinley, Dammit!, y’all are gonna have to let that go. If you’d like, I could bring you some sort of life-size cutout of McKinley, if you love him so much, to have at the bar. Would that help? Uhm…don’t put chalk on babies. This isn’t the Olympics or some sort of billiard room. Please don’t ever babysit. One team didn’t

This week I had the pleasure of training Eric Esqueda! Eric will be hosting a trivia night in Clemson, and dammit he'll run it like a true (mediocre) quizmaster once I'm done teaching him! Kidding, I'm obviously great. Anyway, we'll see him next week as he finishes his training! Congrats to our winners this week, Guy Le Douche, who after months of quizzing finally managed to pull out a first place victory. Red Solo Cups had it until the very end, and if it weren't for the clutchest Joker yet, they would have made it! And finally, some off the clock Liberty employees had some fun in Dolpho's Hurt Ankle (Cries Out)

Paper Airplanes and Awesomeness!
KatieDutton

Tiebreakers have gotten a lot more interesting as of late. I've decided that questions about how much bacon someone can consume or how long the Back to the Future trilogy is are all well and good, but sometimes you've got to shake things up. Now when teams tie for second place, I like to make them create the best paper airplane they can in a minute's time and see who can throw theirs the farthest. So far, it's worked quite well. Hooray for change!In other news, summer is almost over and it's still stupidly hot outside. What is the deal with that?
