And I Thought I Was Done Writing Essays
Chris

One thing that I never had to do for school was Flat Stanley. I didn't even know that he had more to his backstory than an excuse for a 'What I Did on My Summer Vacation' paper. For the sake of being thorough, let's make sure that I didn't miss out on anything. So without further adieu, I present to you the adventures of Flat Stanley and his less than savory journey to Studio 69.   Lights. There were so many different lights. Flashing, colored, strobe, laser, and all of them moving. Then there was the music. Loud and pulsing, the sound could be felt as much as it was heard, penetrating everyone in the hot and crowded room. As Flat Stanley looked around, he could tell that

I enjoy long walks on the beach with my hound and an adult beverage at the end of the day.  And the middle.  Sometimes the start, too.  Know that Sundays are for football and smartassery and the first team to miss a Star Wars question will have hell to pay.  Quoth the Quiz Master, GO SEAHAWKS!

I Unstabbed a Panda. AGAIN.
Gallifreak

Though every quiz night is special in its own right, this quiz was definitely extra special. This is of course for two reasons. Last night's quiz was on the eve of the commemoration of my 42 trip around the sun. Yup. I'm 42, and as a fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books (and not that terrible, horrible movie that came out a few years ago) it's kind of a kickass age to be in my opinion. I'm sitting here typing this waiting for the moment to come when am bathed in all the knowledge in the known universe since I am now the age of the answer to the question of life, the universe and everything. That's what's supposed to happen, right? I'm sure ol' Douglas Adams is looking down on

Born in the arctic wilds of Northern Canada, I moved to the surface of the sun AKA San Antonio, TX. So it seems I'm drawn to extremes in temperature. I'm probably the biggest Doctor Who fan you'll ever meet. My primary love is Classic Who, but the tenures of the 11th and 12th Doctors have won me over as well. I probably am a Time Lord.

Caskets Gone Wilder
PeteGilmore

On the day that we mourn the loss of the great Gene Wilder we also rejoiced in celebration of his life and pub quiz.  I feel like we really hit some homeruns with the team names and a few team names that you were afraid to use, "The Morgue: Where the Wilder Things Are"  Now the Oompa Loompas are Finally Free, Willy Wonka and the Human Organ Factory, Young Frankenstein Needs to Reanimate Himself etc.  You are all terrible people.  I know it was all in honor of Gene and his comedic genius would have loved it.   We continued the 3 rounds of double points trend last night with a round 3 about missing places which everyone did terribly on but not as badly as

#1 rule - drive courteously to pub quiz, use your turn signals

#2 - have a topical and funny team name

#3 - really funny wrong answers can get you a beer and be tomorrow's blog title

They're Baaaaaaack!

Kevin’s unofficial theme of the week: Unsexy sexy things. No I’m not talking about spreadsheets and Microsoft Excel. I’m talking about people like Margaret Thatcher and Bea Arthur. Maybe even a reference to the Moonlite BunnyRanch or S&M… oh wait, that question was about Gitmo. Weekly Rant: They’re back! Yes, the students have come back to Boston with the goal of congesting the roads with their ‘ironic’ unicycles taking up an entire lane of traffic. Or taking forever trying to

Hey! Why are you looking over here? Do you want to know things about me? Like, how I have lived in New England my entire life? How I'm fluent in 5 languages if you count sarcasm and bullshit? How I am a foodie and beer snob? Is that what you want to know? No? You want more? How about how I work at a charter public high school? Is that good enough? My favorite animals are penguins and ducks, with a particular affinity to all things llamas. That's all I'm telling you! Consider yourself lucky!

Fond Thoughts
Sarah

Once again I had the pleasure of being a substitute Quizmaster for this fine establishment and tonight was a night of constant reminders of things I think fondly about. For starters, the bonus beer of the eve was Genesee which was the drink of choice of both of my late grandparents. Brewed in the Genesee River by Rochester NY, this beer was a staple at family gatherings. Next a familiar team walked in, The 7-11 Truthers who are a rad family that quizzes together at my usual venue. Finally, when the team names came in there was a nod to the late Gene Wilder (everybody's favorite chocolatier) from Pure Imagination.

Is “Milk” a PornHub Search Term?
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

Because if it is, that’s gross. Absolutely no offense intended to new mothers, but those dirty movies that involve ladies lactating into some dudes mouth? No… just… no. So you say what you actually wrote was “milf?” OK, I suppose that’s slightly more acceptable. And is it just me, or are almost all PornHub search terms four letters long? There’s ANAL, MILF, “MILK,” TEEN, BOOB, BUTT… and probably about fifty others that I haven’t even thought of. Seriously though… milk sounds like a nasty search term. Let’s all forget that I started the blog all about it. It’s crazy to me

Who Enters The Search Term 'Porn' While on Porn Hub?
The Jewish Viking

I mean... come on. That's like going into a library and asking, "Hey, do you have book?" If I had an award for silliest answer of the night, that'd probably win it. But I didn't. I only have awards for people who knew the following things correctly. Round 1 was a trip through the last week of August's events from all of time. Well, at least as far back as 1456. And sure, that Gutenberg Bible was revolutionary and all, but can you believe Macaulay Culkin is 35? THIRTY FIVE. Wow. Our music round had us wondering all about Maslow's physiological needs. Cheeseburger? I'd call that a need for sure. Not quite sure about Metallica being a need, but I suppose everyone has their own

Ooh Baby I Like It Raw.
The Comedy Freek

Hey Party People, The universe works in mysterious ways. Seems everyone is on the same page. It’s much too often to just be a coincidence. If I’m extra tired and can’t wake up, others around me can’t wake up either. If it feels like time is moving way to fast, others feel the same way. As I sat down to read the Quiz, I though, “oh a round on arousal killers plus the words excretion, cock blocking, lesbians and climaxes (which I changed to “finishes” due to young ones in the crowd). This should be interesting. I wonder how the Quizzers will react?” Based on team names, we were all on the same page. With teams like It

Ari's Birthday
Helena of Troy

That's right. A birthday on a Monday. Can happen to good people too. A tight race all the way to the end for teams one and two but the usual suspects pulling ahead, tough times! I'm not sure which team believed that the US was ever part of Portugal's empire, so I won't single them out, except that every answer was in Portuguese. Also to the team who wrote 'Foxconn' in Chinese characters, I'm sorry I couldn't accept that. A few other notable items was the consideration that Zoloft could be a naturally occurring chemical in the brain like serotonin is...  Remember Labor Day (or Labour Day, however you like it) we will NOT be quizzing at Brave Horse! So find something else

Rain, Rain, Go Away
Cole Hanson

Tonight was a slower night than usual. The bad weather must be keeping everyone away. However, sacrificing team unity in the name of continued quizzing, one of my regular teams split up so that the game could proceed as planned. They're my heroes. They also showed where their strengths and weaknesses in the pub quiz game lie. The three of them are usually a very dominant team and it's nice to see that it wasn't one guy coming up with all their answers. Hopefully the weather will be a kinder, gentler weather and we have have more fun with more teams next week. Congratulations to Hot Tub Time Machine on the win and I hope to see everyone and more back next week for another installment

JWarr

It's ok to not know an answer.  It's not ok to be dumb about it.  Here's another rendition of shit you should know better than to do. - "What non-German language" is not a cue to write "non-German" as an answer.  Technically, all questions could be answered this way.  "What team won the Super Bowl last year?"  Yeah, the non-German team.  We get it.  Be more specific. - Burn this into your memory hole: It's C & C Music Factory.  The song is called "Gonna Make You Sweat".  NOT THE DANCE FACTORY.  NOT EVERYBODY DANCE NOW.  DANCE IS NOT IN THE FUCKING TITLE OR THE ARTIST.  There, now you remember?

When Does Flat Stanley's Father Get Investigated By CPS?
QuizMaster Mike

When you’ve been embroiled in this quizmaster life as long as I have, odds are good that you will have more than one venue under your belt.  More often than not, the groups you encounter at each venue are discrete entities, playing at a specific location for reasons of convenience.  Thus, it is always super weird seeing a group from a previous venue.  Like seeing that friend from high school that you lost touch with after graduation.  More often than not, it’s a pleasant encounter, but you’re not quite prepared for it and it always catches you off guard.  Anyway, this is my long winded way of saying, “what up, Wonderland Brewing Company folks?

Go, Horsie!
VoldeMartini

Whenever I see the passing of an actor I am fond of on the various social media outlets, I doubt the source. I remember the Kel Mitchell debacle of 2006. I don’t trust easy. I didn’t get that feeling when I saw that Gene Wilder has passed away. It may have been that while looking up Mel Brooks movies and such for another blog, I stumbled onto Gene Wilder’s info and got myself used to the idea that he might be with us very much longer. I watched The Frisco Kid the other day on a whim. I love that movie. It may be one of my favorite Gene Wilder films. And no, it isn’t just because of Harrison Ford. The whole film is just amazing. Wilder cracks me up with

Ashton Kutcher is a Cock
Jake Schwingshakl

Rooster that is.  I suppose this only makes sense if you were at a Quiz last night. The American Kelso is a type of rooster. Michael Kelso was Ashton Kutcher's character on That 70's Show. Hence Ashton Kutcher is a Rooster. I wanted to make this joke last night, but I wasn't sure how it would play out. I mean my regulars are pretty tuned into my sense of humor and letting things slide, but there are some things that you never know how they'll play out.  Along with learning that the American Kelso is a rooster, one lucky Quizzer learned not to leave her phone unlocked where I can get at it.

I Wouldn't Bet on Flat Stanley in a Cockfight
DanMaster Quiz

I took a different bus this time. Round 1 came from the last week in August while Came for Happy Hour argued about the phrasing of #7. Round 2 was not a matching round, the physiological needs were just a guide. So good job to Cerebral Ballsy for understanding the rules and a nearly perfect score. Veruca Salt Did It sure did do it in Round 3 with a Joker on 15 points and took the lead. Weenus had their best score of the night and a second bonus beverage to boot. Everyone did well on arousal-killers. I'm not sure if I should be surprised or not. New team, Snack Pack

Maybe MILF Is Your Top Search Term
JoeMills

Sometimes the quiz is the source of strange little synchronicities.  For example, right off the bat we had a question about Brigham Young dying in what state capital, which of course was Salt Lake City, which I had literally just departed earlier yesterday morning.  In fact, on Sunday, I was standing right in front of the Lion House where he died (and lived with his 54 wives).  I stopped at a FedEx Kinkos in Sandy, Utah to print my GWD materials and read through the quiz on the ride home, only to be mildly shocked at seeing such a coincidence.    Yes, I was in the land of the saints.  Some furry friends and I attended the third annual Beard and
