You Forgot to Say Please
Carlos

Whenever you do poorly in quiz and think you’re never going to win, just remember that James Cameron directed Piranha 2 at the beginning of his career. Then he went on to make Terminator 2: Judgement Day. The most perfect movie ever constructed. So I don’t want to hear your sob story about how you don’t know pub quiz questions or you think you’re dumb. Your head is in the right place, but your hand needs to be writing more answers and your mouth needs to be complaining less.Other than that, we did great y’all.You kicked some decent butt on your military rank round, burned through round 2 pretty fast then pretty slow then pretty fast

Do you remember the last time somebody proved they loved you?

Do you know why there would be a missing day in the history of the universe?

Does the idea of the M-Class jaunte seem unreal to you?

Send Me a Shot, and I'll Tell You the Legend of Wally Tallsalt
AJ

You know a quiz night will be interesting when multiple shots are sent up during a scoring break, but that didn't really affect much of the quiz. It manifested more in an extended speech to our gracious bartender, Hannah, about how The Great Bikini Off-Road Adventure is the Citizen Kane of goofy T & A movies. It's legend on the strength of Wally Tallsalt alone - he's a Native American shaman with the mystical power to find that one girl's top over and over again. And the awful early 90's clothes, osh kosh b'gosh those are a joy. It's really right up there with Surf

PBR & Strawberry
GabrielleBethancourt

Last night was PBR night! Our awesome rep came in with awesome prizes - cooler bags, hats, & koozies. I was THIS close to not giving any away and just taking it all home myself. Don't worry, I wouldn't really do that to y'all... Maybe.So, there were questions about military, about how much things cost, about falling, and about strawberries. Interestingly enough, there was a even distribution of knowledge amongst our quiz takers. I was impressed. Normally, you know, some people know a hell of a lot about falling and nothing about prices. Or they'll know a LOT about strawberries but not about military. But Mellow Mushroomers really surprised me. I like the nights

I was born and raised in New Orleans and, therefore, am a little bit crazy but a lot bit sweet. I'm the lovable snark and am the strangest combination of shy and outgoing. I'm also a book nerd with an English degree, but I'll try not to correct your grammar.

I love traveling and even spent 8 months in Spain teaching English and seeing Europe. Although I love Spanish churros, Belgian waffles, French crepes, and Italian pasta, there's nothing like gumbo and jambalaya. New Orleans is my forever home, but my heart is still set on seeing the world. 

Movies and television shows are my jam. Mostly comedy, though I like something to tug at my heartstrings as well. At a pub quiz, I'm the one you ask for entertainment and literature questions. Otherwise, I'm pretty much useless.

The One with Bizarro "The Price is Right"
Tyler W

So I hope I’m not alone in thinking that it’s getting scary how arbitrary some of the new-technology is becoming.  I mean, I’m a tech-savvy guy, and I still don’t think tablets are useful enough to need one attached to a fleshlight.  Is the fleshlight really struggling enough as a product that it needs addons like the tablet attachment?  I wonder if anyone ever thought, “Boy, I really would love to buy a fleshlight, but it just doesn’t seem worthwhile since I can’t hold it and a tablet in the same hand.”  I wonder how many times I can use the word fleshlight before making everyone uncomfortable.   Slightly

In Review
J.A.M.E.S.

Last night’s Visual Round 5 and Audio Round 7 were all about different movies and TV shows. Since I occasionally use this blog to expand cultural horizons, I figured I would give you quick reviews of these various entertainments, so you don’t waste your time on mediocre offerings.   The Sopranos: Pretty good. A bit slow paced at times but the characters and their various moralities are incredible.   Boyz in the Hood: Good. John Singleton’s depiction of life in inner-city LA in the early ‘90s told through the struggles of three friends, each trying to grow up in, escape, or succumb to the violence and hardships

3 Quizzers and a Little Lady or Look Who Quizzing Too
Harvey Wallbanger

Green Door Public House had 12 teams for quiz. Still teasing more rain, of course. Drank the best beer brewed in Dallas: Peticolas Velvet Hammer 9.1% ABV www.ratebeer.com  appears as a dark, ruby reddish-brown ale beneath a sheath of protective off-white foam. It is malt-forward with elements of caramel and the sweetness of light brown sugar, balanced nicely by a combination of floral hops and a noticeable alcohol bite. It’s a sturdy brew with a smooth character which belies both an inner strength and a slightly full body, along with a moderate bitterness to round out the taste.   Check it Out,

Lines on Ale (1848), by Edgar Allen Poe (1809 – 1849)

Filled with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain.
Quaintest thoughts, queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away.
What care I how time advances;
I am drinking ale today.

Our Mighty Quiz Team Misses Out
GB

Finally! The conclusion to our epic tale of Quiz NWith a smile of manager charity the great bar manager's visage shone;    He stilled the rising tumult; he bade the quiz go on;  He signaled to the QM, and the repeats across the bar flew  But our struggling little quiz team couldn’t figure out #2!”    “Maude!” cried the enebriated masses! "Why ask who swallows Flanders' wad?"

My laminated list consists of Deborah Gibson, Anna Kendrick, Ione Skye, Judy Greer and Ashley Williams. (Look her up.) I play rugby because I can't smack people in the mouth during quiz.

Fleshlight Wars and Your Mom: The "Keep it to Yourself" Edition
SirYon

I sense a trend unfolding at the quiz. People are trying to break Geeks Who Drink by having team names with indecipherable characters and shapes that just do not format well on the website. They also require creativity on the quizmaster’s part to be able to pronounce them on the mic. Case and point: the team ████████████████. Thanks to my ingenious ingenuity I announced this team as “This Team Name Has Been Redacted by the FBI for Security Reasons.” Ain’t I clever? We learned much at tonight’s quiz. Most of it was dirty things we couldn’t tell our moms when we called her afterwards. It was comforting

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

 

Drink responsibly and keep your minds open, y'all.
