Alas, We Shall Remember You
Quizmaster Mike

Every spring, Memorial Day comes around and we take a day off and remember what’s most important in life: burgers, beer, and swimming. Yes, the annual tradition of Memorial Day, unique to the US, is one that dates back decades! (Well, 15 of them, but you can still measure it in decades.)   But no, apparently Memorial Day is more than that. We’re supposed to remember the troops that died on battlefields around the world fighting for our country. But not anyone on home soil, nope, once you’re done fighting you’re welcome to the food kitchen and I think there’s still a little slot open for a cardboard

Mike moved down to New Orleans 3 days before Hurricane Katrina hit. Yikes. After spending the next 5 years down there, he packed up his wagon trained and headed West, to the great unknown. There, he met Kent and Eric of the Geeks crew, and he started hosting a quiz in Santa Fe. After denying the seductive as long as he could, Mike returned to his first love, the city of New Orleans. There, he hosts a weekly quiz and gets all the girls.

Mike spent much of his childhood on a farm on the East Coast. He quickly fled the cows, the cold, and the close-by relatives breathing down his neck. He has been known to wander the wasteland alone, picking at the shells of supply trains.

Mike likes warm rain, Planet Earth, any food stuffed with another food, Bugs Bunny cartoons, bacon, Risk, the zombie apocalypse and exclamation points! He hates J-Lo movies, Dr. Phil, small dogs, scented candles, coconut candies, and girls that take a million pictures of themselves.

Freedom Gives Me The Right To Be An Idiot In Front Of A Large Group Of People
EricBurch

On a beautiful Memorial Day here in Columbus, Ohio we had a pretty solid turnout for the pub quiz at Fado Irish Pub at Easton. And the good amount of teams brought about some solid competition as well.   But on this particular evening, our teams were lulled into a false sense of security by our crack team of quizwriters. A round all about them, a fairly easy music round, and a round about Britney and XTina boosted people's self confidence a little too high. That confidence came crashing down when they brought the hammer down with dams and especially some musical math.   Luckily we did have two teams that were head and shoulders above the rest this

A Memorable and Spitwad Free Quiz
Fabrian

Hey guys! So Chloe was out of town this week, so you had to deal with me tonight. You remember me, you know, from other times. Anyway, it's Memorial Day. Which means the Bolder Boulder happened and all the runners lucked out and there wasn't any rain. I sort of hate to admit it, but I kind of wanted it to rain extra hard today. If you graduated this year, you probably felt similar. Oh well. We had a pretty great quiz tonight. If it was your first night, I'm not Chloe- so come back!Quiz inspired thoughts:But seriously, fuck Merlot."Thomas Edison's douchey wizardry" was a pretty fun thing to say.Wonder if there is a mash-up song called "White American

....In The Place To Be!
Dave

Memorial Day weekend always results in a population growth in Northern Michigan, and Traverse City serves as the epicenter for the summer season swell.  Many came to quench their thirst at Kilkenny’s Irish Public House, and word had apparently gotten out on the place to be on Sunday night!  6 teams (and eventually a 7th) come out to try their hand at laying claim to the smartest quiz team in the North.   Everyone loved reminiscing on TV shows and music from past and present in the first two rounds (even leading to a brief sing-along or two after the audio clips!).  The “Sesame Street”-like

The Answer is Always Fishy
Evan

Thomas Jefferson literally slapped Lewis and Clark on the ass when they headed off across a budding America.  It's true.  I read about it in an actual history book, and now I'm passing that knowledge on to you.  Please disseminate this knowledge appropriately. Also, did you know that Lew Zealand was actually the main character of the Muppets?  Jim Henson wrote about it in his autobiography.  He said that every character he invented was just a spin-off of Lew, and that the Muppet Show was intended to be a portrayal of the theater world as perceived by Lew.  In fact, if you take Twiggy's rendition of "In My Life," as performed

     The excitement was abound tonight at O'Niell's!  We had rain!  We had birthdays!  We had children barfing!!!!   Yes, my son was showing his buddies funny videos on his Ipad.  His friend took a drink during one of the videos and then  it hit a funny part.  Well, this almost lead to the scene in Stand By Me, but luckily, I passed on the Canola Oil tonight!   You know what else we had tonight?  Normal answers!  Well, until we got to random knowledge...   I hope you really don't think that Russian Roulette is an official sport in Russia!  ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE PLAYING WITH 64

I love Nerds.And Dorks.  And Geeks.  And Dweebs.  I love them all.  They will make excellent heralds when the Earth is mine.  Plus, they'd finally get their due at the top of the food chain.  Not literally, though.  That's still meant for lions, and stuff.  Both don't think they are all the same.  Not at all!  Let me 'splain.

To Infinity and Beyond
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Thanks to Quizzly Bears for some humor in Round Four: BRB a Round on Famous Journeys. While the majority of humans sent to space have survived. We were not the first life form to live through the excursion. There is a darker side to the history of space travel, it is not as Action packed as the Alien Trilogy but, it is still troubling. Prior to sending Astronauts, Cosmonauts, and Taikonauts into space mankind experimented with fruit flies, mice, monkeys, and dogs. A couple of dogs were the first to survive a brief space flight but, the USA and Russia lost many more dogs after Tsygan and Dezik returned to land. As we continue to explore the

Hello. When I feel awkward I like to talk about my cats. If you stick around long enough I will definitely start showing you pictures of my cats. However, I am feeling mildly confident right now so here are some fascinating tidbits about this QM:

I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you this is the most stable job I have ever had also, this is the longest I have ever held a job. It has been a challenge committing to the quiz but, it is one I do well with whiskey.

I enjoy watching copious amounts of television, muttering softly to myself and bowling. My day job is in the mental health field. I would like to adopt more cats. I am afraid of aliens and think human/ alien relations will never really jive. I have a degree in cultural anthropology. I am greatly looking forward to the impending apocalypse and hope you will enjoy my quiz. I suffer from a mild form of social anxiety and often fall victim to fear farts.

See you on Tuesday,

Andrea
