BJ, the lovable scamp

Now that you are all fired up with that awesome cheer, let’s snap into some quiz chatter. Because that’s what I do, kind of. And that’s what you came for. Kind of. Some fierce competition found its way into our second place standings as Big Damn Heroes took on the hilariously named Scissoring Kim Davis in a sudden death showdown for said rank. Unfortunately, Ms. Davis could not pull out the political knowledge in time to keep out of trouble (hmm, kind of like real life) and those Big Damn Heroes walked away with the big damn second place. I didn’t mention our first place team, Even My Cat Takes

Mellow Greetings! It's me, BJ, the lovable scamp, coming to you from a building of sorts in ol' Pasco in Eastern Warshingtoneia. The desert, with one s, because you only want to meet one snake in the desert. You want beer? I have beer, that I made, with my own two hands, and lots of equipment, and sometimes other people's two hands. Been doing it for years. Its pretty good. My dad doesn't like any of the beers I make because he is a big wuss that could beat me up. But he won't, because I'm too fast. I can also write you a story, or a comic, or a movie, cause that's what I do. Kind of. You wanna go play pinball? Awesome, me too! We have so much in common. Let's chill sometime, bring our spouses, of which I have one wifal unit, and dog(s)/cat(s), of which I also have one and two units, respectively. See you tomorrow!

Hope your pussy feels better.
Caribbean Joe

Patsquatch couldn’t be with us last night.  He was off getting his pussy looked at.  Apparently it wasn’t feeling good.  Having known Patrick for some time now, I have learned that while he is a man of many talents, a writer, actor, martial artist, and even as he claims, comedian, he also has a soft side.  (No really, poke his sides, he’s soft.)  Patrick loves animals and is especially fond of cats.  I’ve met and even cared for his cats briefly from time to time.  Well, over the last week or two, one of his kitties hasn’t been at the top of her game, so after some observation and deliberation, he decided to take

I enjoy long walks on the beach, scooter rides and zombies.  

I have a BS in BS.  I can BS in at least 2 languages and I can convincingly imitate a few others.

I enjoy any occasion to dress up.  I will go disco, zombie or Mandalorian if you give me a reason. 

I am Caribbean Joe.  Born in Texas, I lived in the southwest pretty much all my life.  A desert dweller's life for me.  

So I picked up quizzing after my friend and scorekeeper, Island Amy, found an ad and prodded me to audition.  The rest is history.  Loving the quiz and the people it draws.  If I am not quizzing, you may find me out enjoying Tucson.

You may also see me around town on my scooter.  Feel free to wave.

If you want to know more, stop by and quiz and meet me and I just might answer your questions. Hell I may even answer you truthfully.

One, Two, Wes is Coming for You
SuperMallory

We covered a lot of Wes Craven ground last night, and that is a great send-off for the man who, for some reason, my parents allowed to have a lot of involvement in my formative years. However, we did miss some of the major points and so I am dedicating this blog to Mr. Craven, and I am recommending some lesser-known greats by this great of greats. GREAT. Freddy vs. Ghostbusters – Ok, to be honest, this movie is a flop. It is a piece of fan fiction. But in concept it is absolutely amazing! The Ghostbusters going after Freddy? So this isn’t Wes’s film, but it is a great iteration of one of his characters.

Mallory is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. Mallory was depicted in ancient seals of the Poudre Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers. The Bible also describes an animal, the re'em, which some translations have rendered with the word Mallory.

The earliest description is from Ctesias who, in his book On India, described Mallory as fleet of foot, having a horn 27 inches in length, and colored white, red and black. Aristotle must be following Ctesias when he mentions two one-horned animals, the oryx and the so-called "Mallory".

I had occasion to fill in for Mikhail again last night! This Thursday was pretty muggy, but thankfully Clancy's had the AC blasting. We had a great quiz and the teams duked it out pretty mightily. We had a controversial first round and apparently no one knew the Torah forbids watered-down ketchup. Everything's better with butter, though, even Dancing with the Stars. Round two was all friend-related songs and I got to torture everyone with my rendition of "Just A Friend" by Biz Markie.

Brydon

Howdy, everyone. We had a great crowd at Old Chicago tonight - a nice mix of old faces and new. We even had some people that came out for the football game join us! (shout out to Bronco Bob and JS, two awesome teams that joined the fun). And a special shout out to everyone who started and then joined in on the spontaneous Country Roads sing along. John Denver would be proud. I was starting to read a question and heard a few of you singing along with the song in the background. So I stopped, turned up the music, and we had a little sing-along.

 A rather quiet night at Adventure Brewing as 10 teams stopped by for some Geeks Who Drink Fun. Teams such as Ramrod, Bandersnatch, Advanced Tactical Hipster, and Quiz in your pants took the night off to leave the door open for some newer teams to take home the weekly trophy. Name Team started hot out of the gates as they managed to lead 6 of the 8 rounds. They simmered down as the final two rounds came up though, as 2 teams that saved their joker for the final round, pushed name team down to 4th place.  Hugh Jass and Dumpster Fire battled it

THANK YOU FOR SIGNING UP FOR INFIDELITY FACTS
Dark Lord of Quiz

FACT: Between the media shaming anyone ever caught in a "sex scandal" or the vitriolic backlash against users of Ashley Madison, we have a pretty hypocritical view of "cheating" in our society, except that pretty much everyone "cheats" every day whether it be physically, emotionally or via technology. SPEAKING OF CHEATING VIA TECHNOLOGY, just so long as you don't cheat at QUIZ, you do you, I ain't gonna judge you for your proclivities or what-have-you, even if you choose my quiz at Acme Bar and Grill in Colorado Springs as a seemingly safe Tinder-date location...Just

Fuckmaster Emeritus

Well, now. Not the crammed-est, craziest, wildest insane-o-est quiz we've ever had at McCabe's, but a pretty fun one, to boot, given the evening rain and the humidity that curled us all up like curly things. Cheetos? Arby's fries? Um ... curls? Regardless. Well, now. There was some confusion about our good ol' pal Pershing and his numbers-of-stars-itude, although it didn't for a moment change the correct answers.

I figured something important out when I stepped into The Greenhouse Bar. It’s an actual greenhouse. Like, for real. Plants growing everywhere. That place is awesome. You know what else is awesome? The attendance last night! We had no less than 9 teams, all super enthusiastic about playing a quiz.   And a quiz is what they played. We covered everything from Chip Tunes to Cartoons and even a few sports questions! In true Geeks Who Drink fashion, the sports questions fell awkwardly on their faces, and almost all the white kids at The Greenhouse failed to identify Biz Markie.   Here are some

Tonight it looked like the Pub Quizzers ruled supreme over any baseball fans!  It’s a Quizmaster’s dream come true when the bar is attentive and excited about my quiz.   Round 1 brought you all out of the gate strong, but clearly, y’all need to watch more Food Network because Gordon Ramsay is definitely still a television chef (and a heart throb).  Kim Davis Marriage Counselling Inc. came racing into first place by using an extremely well-placed joker, and they incredibly held on to their lead throughout the rest of the night.

Hey thanks to everyone for coming out last night! You coulda been in line outside of a Target waiting for Star Wars toys, BUT YOU WENT WITH US! Speaking of, hey good luck everyone on getting that BB-8 remote control droid! I don't wanna brag, but I brought a 24 team night in on time all by my lonesome. No one else maybe cares, but I promise that it's a relatively big deal.

Hey there Iron Bear!   During tonight’s round 2, I made a casual joke about how the abundance of shitty early-2000’s pop-punk would have made my little sister happy, and that if any team managed a perfect 16 points in that round, I would give them my sister’s number, because they were clearly meant to be friends. Well, much to my surprise, Iron Bear regulars Gays of Thunder actually did pull off a perfect score in that round! I never did give out my sister’s number, but if you want it, guys, you might hit it off with her! Just be warned, she does live on a mountain in Colorado with her fella, and they’re both

Labors and Days
Nicknames are Hard

This day in history is full with neat patent stuff. In 1888, George Eastman was issued a landmark U.S. patent No. 388,850 for his box camera. On the same date, he registered the trademark name: Kodak. The Eastman Kodak company was formed 24 Apr 1888. This design was the first Kodak mass-produced camera, and brought photography to the mass market. As described in its advertising, the operation was simple: "Pull the String, Turn the Key, Press the Button." Now anyone could take pictures family, events, indoor and outdoor scenes, and vacations, without needing special skills. Only 22-ounces in weight, it required no tripod or table for support. It used a fixed-focus lens which was still

I mean honestly, the place is named after a woman who was so ugly if you looked at her you'd be turned to stone. Does that sound like the type of place you'd go to to find some side action? Also apparently my quiz goes have dirty minds because Suck me suck me eat me raw is about oysters you guys.  Anyways, Wednesdays quiz taught us some really fun things, like Volkswagen's slogan probably should be "Drivers Wasted" and that a barrel really is a unit of measurement. Yes I know I told you all it wasn't but then I was told that I was standing in a brewery and that they brewed beers by the barrel. Also its 42 gallons of oil to a barrel as well. Both

Some people are pot of coffee by day bottle of wine by night type of people, times that by 3 and you've got me. Hey I'm Chris, part time Quiz Master who should never have been trusted with a microphone. 

In college I started my own pub quiz for college students because there was nothing else for them to do on a Tuesday night. 5 Years later I'm happy to return to hosting.

I live out in Acton, MA now with a silly dog named Bagel, and an asshole of a parrot named Jax. Just kidding, Jax is cool, he has the kind of integrity that the mere improbable lacks.  

I can never seem to get the hang of Thursdays. In my free time I read a lot, ride motorcycles, go running, and plot ways to become batman. I'm also big into board games and card games. 

Someday I hope that humanity will invent a printer that doesn't beg to be dragged out to an empty field and beaten to bits. We can only dream.
