Yay, another Internet fan theory!
The R-U-E

Hello Iron Bear!   As we learned in tonight’s round four, this week, we celebrate the birthday of England’s second-wealthiest woman, Jo Rowling! Of course, that also means that we celebrate the birthday of her greatest creation, the Boy Who Lived, Harry Potter.   I have a theory about Harry Potter that I don’t think has ever been posted online anywhere, so this seems about as good a place and time to do that as any. Two warnings: first, if you’re not a Harry Potter fan, this’ll be pretty hard to follow. Secondly, heavy spoilers abound. If you’re not caught up on HP, well, you probably should be,

The warrior known now as Quizmaster Chris was born immortal in the Scottish highlands in the 1500's. He was able to keep his clan's secret for centuries until being discovered by Sean Connery in New York in 1985. LaRue escaped to live another day, and Connery played himself in the film adaptation of the encounter.

 

Quizmaster Chris loves Batman, tetrahydrocannibinol, Catholic whiskey, and anything covered in queso.

Free Snacks? I Guess You're Okay!
Michael Domangue

This week at Krewe Lounge is the reason why I do this job. This won't be a quiz remembered for breaking any scoring records, or some crazy come from behind victory. This won't be a quiz remembered for single moment, but rather this week's quiz reminds me of a very specific moment in my life that didn't actually occur.   You remember the movie “The Sandlot”? Sure you do. I'll never forget the scene with the boys of summer playing baseball while fireworks blast over them during a fourth of July celebration. It was a simple moment in time that just looked magical. Now I may want to backtrack a bit and refrain from comparing this quiz to the greatest scene from

Time to Put a Few Things on Notice
Sweet Adam

Time to put some things on notice per last night’s quiz: Flintstones Chewable Vitamins – Growing up I ate way too many of these. Not in one sitting…though it did cross my mind. Sometimes I would sneak an extra one or two out of the medicine cabinet because they tasted like little candies. This is not what you want to be instilling into the minds of kids at that age. Tasty things come in little pill jars! You can open this up easily and snack anytime! Also question as I got older that was brought to my attention: Why did the Flintstones celebrate Christmas? Tom

Across the assorted continuities of the universe, there have been various interpretations of Adam. One of Adam's most notable characteristics in any form was his adamant commitment to leadership by example, and avoidance of any hypocrisy in his command. Adam is a wise and essentially upbeat battlefield general.

Other minor details about Adam's personality and personal life — for example, his dislike of rap music ("Blaster Blues" and "Quest for Survival"), which set him at odds with some music-loving characters. Adam also enjoys televised sports, most notably softball which he even plays ("The Master Builder"), as well as setting up a basketball court outside the quiz. Though Adam's personality is like that of a human man age 40-50, he is not above watching afternoon soap operas.

I like gin and tonics.

So! We had ourselves a pretty rippin' good time at McCabe's last night. Let's get winners out of the way first: Pat Sajak. Sajak Sajak Sajak. They crushed the rest of all y'all. In second, somehow, was Unitarian Jihad, who squeaked in there despite shitting the bed on no fewer than every single round ever. But hey! In third was a new team, who happened in with a mighty big gaggle of happy Minnesotans in town for a wedding. And, as I'm a son of those particulary loony soils, it felt a lot like going home, complete with getting actual lutefisk recipes and being told this joke: So Ole and Lena have saved and saved, and they finally have enough money

Tonight was ROWDY! My inability to pronounce proper names and anything Russian was showcased once again in tonight’s quiz, although I am still proud of myself for saying all of round 7’s knights and dames perfectly correct. Also, Michael Caine singing? Amazeballs. We recapped my fear of zombies/I Am Legend horror story, discussed why pearls are just plain silly for most women (what are we, Park Avenue princesses? Hell no!), and that the RUMBLE IS BACK! (see below for more details – get your butts signed up!). Quiz covered famous British folk, all things

I got back to Mary's from a very hard couple of weeks.  My MIL and one of my grandmothers passed away within a week of one another.  It has been very difficult for me because, contrary to fairy tales, my MIL was a great woman.  She played drag bingo with us at Mary's, went Sunday Funday drinking with us and was supportive.  You don't find support like Mama Maas gave everyday.  I'm really going to miss her.  #cancersucksMy grandma was a huge part of my middle school years.  My dad and I didn't have very smooth relationship while I was in my "angry" years and my grandma was always there to support me and listen.  After I graduated

All Things That End in July
WhatashittyDM

Well, You folks were wild as all hell last night, with zero fucks given for any decorum at all. It all began with a quizzer proclaiming that he was an asshole, and living up to that often. James was on deck to do act one of the quiz and he did a great job. The audio round was Firm Le Bouche, featuring songs that suggested folks shut up, and we in fact called back to that many times. :) emoji came in first, with We think, Therefore We Drink scoring 2nd place, and Jan Gortcher bribing their way to third with cigarettes. It was a real fun round last night, with Harry Potter knowledge, Bulgarian trivia, and child centric advertisements

Wellp, this was my last quiz before embarking on my epic journey to the Jersey Shore (for a week, i'll be back) and by golly was this fun! Kicked off the first 3 rounds with a PG-13 rating to accommodate the 8 year old in the restaurant, despite her mother yelling “It's cool, she's heard it all before!” I love you will you be my mother now? JK Suzanne is a saint. Anyhoo, here's what you missed in case you suck donkey balls. R1: All Cheap Shills Great and Small. A round about product placement in movies and ads featuring little kids.

Nice Prize
Professor Truman

After a week of selling hammocks at an out of state art festival, Professor Truman is back!  The thrift stores were good on the trip too.  One of the better finds was this week’s 3rd place prize.  A 1000 piece puzzle of the Periodic Table.  Ohhhhhh, science-y.  Of course the 3rd place prize is going to go hand in hand with the unofficial theme... ELEMENTS.  Very nice.  Now to the fun facts. 1.  Is it the Brandcameo Awards season already?  I still have to find my BCA shaped cookie cutter and get my ballots made up for the big annual party.  2.  I know 0% French.  Good thing the quiz had the pronunciation

Fun Quiz Times at Tapcade last night! A big group of quizzers, a pretty challenging quiz and of course BEER AND TACOS. And hey, looks like somebody has been reading my blog because we had a team called I'm Here for the Tacos (hey, me too!) and they even ended up taking the second place prize. They were only beaten by Stew's Squad, a team of rule-abiders who, when their 7th friend showed up mid-way through quiz, made him sit at the bar until they finished quizzing!   Rule-abiders, rule-breakers--quiz brings us all together. Or tears us apart. I don't know. But hey, if you're reading this, let me reiterate: we LOOOOOVE teams! We love teams

Sadie: Porch-Warrior
QM Kwi

                So you all need an update on Roof-Cat. Her name is Sadie, by the way. So Sadie has dropped the moniker of Roof-Cat and is now Porch-Cat. She hangs out there all day gettin’ her tan on and confusing the pedestrians as to why there is a cat just hanging out on a porch. We obviously feed her, give her ice water, visit her, and sometimes wrap an ice-packet in a blanket so she can cool off.                 Overall, Sadie’s doing just fine.

No, We Won't Make It Easier
Sarah B.

Wow. I thought the Round 8 from a couple weeks ago was rough, but last night we set a new low average score and NO teams reaching double digits in our final round. Which is great, because we feed off the tears of quizzers, MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Mine is an evil laugh. Reigning champions Soccer Hooligans managed to squeak out the win over  Jizz Kids, who vaulted back into the top 2 after falling short for a long stretch. Things we learned this week: Everybody has a problem with Bulgaria (except for the Hooligans, who had a Bulgarian on their team) Most people don’t know any Adam Sandler movies after The Wedding

All Good Things Must Come To An End @ PATEROS CREEK!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

Back in December of 2012, a new brewery opening in Fort Collins and shortly thereafter, they picked up Geeks Who Drink. Now, 130 quizzes later, here we are. I’m sad to say the final quiz at Pateros has run its course, but sadly, I think we just went on a little too long. You diehards who came out every week made it what it was, but we needed fresh blood… blood which needed to have its ABV increased an awful lot, because breweries need to sell beer. You listened to my rants about Rush and how much I hate Quidditch, I fumbled over Ecclesiastes, I had my own beer brewed for me, celebrated my 500th quiz here (this one marked 629), and we had lots and lots of great

How Special these Olympics truly are…..
shadude (the long winded Persian)

Thank you again to Hardwuar for covering for me for the third time in five weeks. I know my return to quiz was brief….and for that I apologize. Three days after returning from my three week holiday in Scotland, I had to go to Denver for work. Of course while I was there I did what I normally can't do here in LA - PLAY QUIZ….well, play and WIN!!!! And probably the most ridiculous non-work thing I did while in Denver was see Boy George and Culture Club (yes, THAT Boy George and THAT Culture Club). It was just too much fun (and such a nice change of pace to not be the oldest person at a concert).But the real story here is my what my life has been like literally

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

Turd Is The No. 1 Word For No. 2
Chris

Maybe I'm just a big dumb slow child of a man, but nothin brings me more joy than calling Thursday "Turdsday". It's not some elaborate gag. Monday's are trash, but there's no real goofy spin on those other than a mildly mentally affected feline takin the piss out of them on coffee cups sitting in the dish communal dish drainer at work. Thursday's are pretty great actually, since they're so close to Friday's which we all know are the best of all the days most folks gotta slog through some dumb job or other, pumpin' for the man. So given all of that, I don't know why Turdsday brings me such great joy. Oh! Wait! I do! It's the TURD! Lately I guess I've been partial to "crap" as my go to verb
