How to Get Superpowers without Ever Trying
Pierce

Well that certainly was an exhilarating quiz last night! I'm still not exactly sure what happened but I know lightning, the microphone, and my face were involved. But, my eyebrows remain intact and my hair has not turned white...and I'm waiting to see what superpowers develop. The quiz went on as usual once we determined the equipment was functional, of course.  Movies with sophomoric interpreted titles! Chronological ordering! BARATHEONS. A quiz with everything. Including a question about Thor, because the quiz knew we'd get struck by lightning. The quiz always knows.  We Came for the Beer did just that. and the pokemon. Unfortunately,

I Absolutely Do Not Have Matt In The Basement
Kevin

I don't even have a basement! It's more of a root cellar. It's always fun to stick my head into somebody else's sandbox and play a while, and last night was no exception. The Second Street Brewery is a fantastic spot, and it is one of the many Pokemon Go gyms we have in downtown Santa Fe, so everybody not at Geeks Who Drink were battling for domination of it. I also got to utter the phrase “That's just like mom used to make,” in regards to their artichoke dip. Faaaantastic. I don't think I have ever enjoyed and subsequently regretted a round more in my career as a quizmaster than round one last night,

Oh My God We're Screwed We're Screwed You Love It?
TanookiSuitandTie

Wow, where do I even begin talking about spending a night in homage to one of the greatest animated TV shows out there? Well, I suppose I already have, now haven't I? Look, I know Bob's Burgers has the insurmountable task to be an animated Fox show that isn't anything like The Simpsons or like Family Guy, but quite honestly, it's achieved it. It went through some evolution at its start where it included raunchier humor and flashback sequences that seemingly came out of nowhere, much like Family Guy... almost. I don't even know how to describe the brand of humor that Bob's Burgers has to offer, it's just pure and ridiculous and intelligent and absurd. Combine that with amazing voice talent,

Burger of the Day: Leeks Who Drink Burger
MaxGlenn

My wife and I are quite slow to watch television. It was only a year ago we moved to this part of Ohio and the scramble for jobs and simple securities often put us on differing time tables to watch stuff. Television, we found, was the great unifier it was for our forefathers or even most of the people in our friends group. But as we settled into our Cleveland lives we have come to find one show that sort of pulls us together no matter how crummy or hard our days get: Bob’s Burgers. We’re not prone to hyperbole but it is

NateFincher

One team actually put that, and my answer key actually had that as an acceptable answer! Another hilarious answer was for the masturbating round…Mary Poppins…wow, childhood ruined right there. Even funnier, I think the correct answer for that question was “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle”. Thanks editors, for leavin me hangin in Round 6…no phonetic pronunciation for “Kierkegaard”…its ok, I used my 1st grade education and sounded it out. I didn’t have the crowd yelling corrections and obscenities so I musta pronounced it correctly, or nobody can pronounce it correctly. If you’re reading this and

TV Couples....and quiz
Margaret

I want to start my first official blog by saying -- it does not make any damn sense to tell Dawson he’s your soul mate while choosing Pacey! So fuck you Joey Potter! It’s been over a decade and I still think you’re a dumbass! Also, no, Buffy does not belong with Spike; she belongs with Angel. Uncultured swine. I feel like there’s something I’m supposed to be talking about beyond TV couples, but I’m not quite sure what. It’ll come to me eventually. I always thought Sam should be with Kirstie Alley’s character, not Diane. No matter how nicely the names Sam and Diane flow. I never watched Scrubs and I’m happy with Ross

I Think It's Safe To Say, Tucson Likes Butts
Natasha Noir

I know this because so many geeks showed up wearing their favorite Tina Belcher butt-tastic tee shirts. I get it, it's one of the many reasons I chose to dress up as her for this quiz. The love of butts, but also love of zombies. Me and Tina are so similar in those ways. I think she loves zombies so much because a zombie will never mind a good butt groping. I mean, it may chew you out over it but you may get a few good grabs in before that happens..... Yeah, I know, get to the topic at hand. Ok, quiz was awesome. We had an excellent turn out, I had amazing help from Lady Busty and we all had a few good laughs. The top team whooped the competition but was disqualified because we are family,

You guys, used to be that I didn't work on Thursdays, that quiz was my only responsibility.  My schedule changed a while back and due to the nature of my work it's hard to predict when an unexpected long day might come up and when I got to cut out to make it to quiz on time that's a reality I'm still adjusting to.  I mean, I'm the kind of guy that might disassemble his truck for months on end and be left with only small displacement motorcycles to rely upon for motorized transport.  Well, today work went long and I had to take the CB175 on the freeway to make it on time.  It's a bit unnerving to hold the throttle wide open and make maybe 73ish MPH flat out when every car

Sudden Death! I Remember Those!
The Quizmaster General

What a great night! SUDDEN DEATH, decided by one point! Awesome. At different times throughout the night all three of our top teams held first, second and third place, so it was really close right up until the end, and that tie! Plus with FOUR 16 point rounds, it was a high-scoring night, with our top tied teams breaking 90 points BEFORE the tie-breaker. Wow. We opened Round 1 with our top 3 teams getting a perfect score of 8 points each. Round 2 (our first 16 point round) was a unique audio round in that I wanted not the song name, but the election year it was popular in. So this time

Yes, the mustache is real.

Hey everybody!  My name is Richard Rasner, but I used to be known as "The Quiz Pimp" (a nickname given to me on my first day ever on the job as a GWD QM.) I'm the guy up on the old-fashioned microphone calling out your quiz and playing awesomely terrible music during the scoring breaks.  These days a new venue change means a new nickname, so now I'm apparently The Quizmaster General.

When I'm not Quizmastering my day job is as a fine art nude photographer under the moniker "Unique Nudes" -- That's right, my day to day life is taking pictures of naked people all over the world. And if that doesn't make you hate me enough, I also photograph live music, and spend my evenings hanging out backstage with rock stars such as Billy Idol, NIN, Papa Roach and more.  You can check out my Facebook if you don't believe me, but sadly it's all true.  I'm not just a geek, I'm one of the rare super-cool geeks.

So why be a Quizmaster?  Because I love quizzes and I love all of you.  That's right, without my players I would be nothing.  Your amusing team names and crazy banter keep me coming back week after week.  So keep coming! Keep talking to me! And win those fabulous prizes!

-- Quizmaster out.

Of apes and octothorpes
Tex from Pittsburgh

A team of charming, lovely quizzers took exception to my interpreting the symbol # preceding the numeral 1 as the phrase "number one." They thought #1 should be pronounced "hashtag one." I take back everything I said earlier -- yes, they are right. Thinking back on it now, whenever I've seen the phrase "We're #1" written on signs at football games, I've always assumed they meant "We're hashtag one." And when I read the Billboard charts and see that Rihanna has scored yet another #1 hit, I realize that should be pronounced "hashtag one hit." How silly I was. I'm being facetious, of course. Everyone knows that the # symbol is properly called an

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:


I am married to a lovely lady and live in West Denver with my two lovely cats, Lucy and Trousers. We don't have any kids yet and my wife says we can't name any kids Lucy on account of that's what the cat's name is. If I'd have known that I would have named the cat something else, you know? 


The name of the gang is my neighborhood is the "West Ninth Fuk Puppets," judging by the graffiti in my alley.


I collect Cthulhu statuettes, paisley ties, aloha shirts, animal skulls, briar pipes, expired passports off of eBay and smashed pennies. I used to collect pogs but then they stopped selling them.


I've never broken an arm or leg, and never had chicken pox. I am immune to bedbug bites and nearly immune to mosquito bites.


I've been in three fights in my adult life and won 1 1/2 of them.


I went to Spain for my honeymoon. I had diarrhea for seven of the 10 days of the trip.


I won the Phoenix Public Schools spelling bee for 3rd grade in 1990. I got 100 percent on all my spelling tests in 4th grade except for the word "masquerade," which I spelled correctly, but I got a half point taken off because my sloppy cursive made the "u" look like a "v". But to hell with that. I spelled it correctly, give me the full point, right?


I must have done other stuff besides that, but that's about all I can think of.


UPDATE: The above is all still accurate, except now I live in East Denver and have a 2-year-old son. Also, I'm not sure what the gang is in my new neighborhood.

Thank you all for coming out for our first Bob’s Burgers theme quiz. The show is one of my absolute favorites, and it was a trip to host. It was also like the greatest excuse in the world to lay down $20 for pink bunny ears. Because half of you all asked, I got them at Hot Topic. There was some 20% off sale. You all knew yo shizzle! Baby Num-Num's Sesame Cheddar Blasts started out in first and live there all night long. Teams got close, but when you’re not missing anything, close is never going to be close enough.

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.

Disclaimer: Roughly 70% of the above is true. The other 40%... total fabrication and folly.

It’s great that as the only GWD venue in Indianapolis, we still have a following to bring people out for our theme quizzes on not-so-regularly-scheduled nights. Eight teams joined us at Redemption Alewerks for two hours of quiz on Bob’s Burgers last night. Without telling you what the questions actually were, let’s say that this quiz could only be won by the most die-hard of die-hard fans of the show. Round 1 – This show is trippin’. Sorry We’re Late, Bob Had Diarrhea and Takin’ Care of Mr Bizness had the top scores with seven points apiece. Round 2 – This was a tough audio round, with

Hey there, butt-heads! Glad to see I've got another rowdy crowd this evening ready for some Geeks Who Drink shenanigans! There was no doubt tonight was gonna be one for the books, and I was all hyped up to get it started. So let's see what tonight's got in store for us, shall we? Say varmint, I know you weren't too impressed with my sorry ass Yosemite Sam expression, but beyond that, I think the first round was pretty fun! Anytime I get to reminisce about my childhood days of watching Looney Tunes (which was like, last week) equals a good round for me!

What a wily bunch tonight. Again we had a packed house but this time we also had hecklers, answer shouters, and answer debaters (take it to the Errorogenous Zone you incorrect know-it-alls). We also had multiple rounds that really made me pay attention to my math, with 4 instead of 2 rounds with questions worth more than 1 point a piece. It was also the first time I’d ever heard someone ask for “more physics”! Round 2 tonight pretty much sucker punched everyone in the face. Rather than write the artist and title of each song as per usual, quizzers were asked for the artist and the year the song gained popularity around the time of national party conventions. I had

Here Are Some Of MY #ThursdayThoughts
Quizmaster Truly, Truly, Truly Outrageous

Tonight, one of the questions talked about Edgar Allan Poe’s story “The Fall Of The House of Usher.” Maybe you’ve read it. It’s about a man who lives in a mansion whose sister is sickly and dies, but then comes back or something and he goes crazy and his friend is like “you crazy, dude, I’m outta hear” and then the house literally collapses on the crazy man and his maybe dead/maybe not/maybe ghost sister. It’s not the most thrilling of Poe’s works, but it’s ok. When I was in high school, I was in drama class and I was cast in the one-act version of “The Fall Of The House Of Usher.” I got the lead role,
