"I prefer the version with Johnny Depp" - Donald Trump (probably)
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: The one and only (and I mean that in the sense that I hope they are the one and only team that goes by this name) Touched by an Uncle.   Best/worst team name of the week: I have to give it up to Rob Lowe Me…they got me. Either they’re clever or I’m just an idiot, but the truth is probably somewhere in between.   Best guess of the week: Multiple teams guessed Galaxy Quest in place of Dude, Where’s My Car, which is either an insult to the former or a compliment to the latter. Again,

In The End
Alison C

This past weekend, I made the trek out to Ft. Worth in order to Scorekeep for FW Quizmaster Ashley for the Harry Potter theme quiz.  Though I didn’t see any of you there, I know several of you participated at various locations throughout the metroplex and I hope your attempts were fruitful—whether you made off with money or not. After quiz ended, I trekked to the Dallas Zoo (at night!) in honor of fellow Quizmaster Ben’s birthday.  He’s old.  I could lie to you and tell you that the only reason I went to the zoo was to celebrate his birthday….but then where would we

"Why Was Richard At Backcountry?" he asked...
He Who Shall Be Ignored/Obeyed About 50/50

Arfwyldo and Sloopy were at loose ends. It was a Monday night. What in the hell were they supposed to do on a Monday night? They had this question hit them as they were drinking a strawberry, sweet potato and pumpkin saison at Backcountry Pizza and so it really shouldn’t have been a surprise when they saw a poster for quiz, that very night. And so that was how they elected to spend their evening. A few calls netted some friends, colleagues and hangers-on. A team was formed. For a change, they didn’t suck. Which was good. But, as with all things, the rails eventually came off.

Ben

Great googly moogly! We played a fun eight rounds at Blu Wolf tonight, and I’m capping off my evening by typing this thing out as I’m filling up on comic book vlogs. I mean, man, could life get any better? Probably not. Well, probably, but it’s still pretty good. Best answer of the evening: when a team incorrectly identified the rough plot from a children’s book as being from Dr. Suess’ Thorax. I mean, I guess I never thought too much about Theodor Geisel’s midsection, but I have now. I wonder if he had two extra sets of arms coming out of it… I mean, that would be great for productivity, right? RIGHT? YO, so anyway: good game tonight. We

Who Brought that Girl?

We all received the sad news today that the world has lost Gene Wilder. You all know I love Willy Wonka, and people who really know me know that I have a small obsession. I met the Wonka kids a few years ago and struck up a friendship with Denise Nickerson, aka Violet. What a fabulous person. She was the sweetest. I’ll never forget the night I got a text from her telling me to turn on the Oprah channel, because Oprah was interviewing Peter Ostrum (Charlie Bucket). I was so excited. Best text ever. Anyway, needless to say, today was a sad day. Here are some random thoughts: Congrats to quiz regular, Danny! Danny got married over the weekend. Weeeeeee! Awe, I miss John Candy.

Only One Gene Wilder Team Name?
Troy

A giant of comedy has left us today. An event that is always ripe for topical, honorary team naming in the quiz world. I was holding my butt waiting for the onslaught of Wonky Willys and Nice Knockers team names, but to no avail. Only one of the teams at Grinders this week decided to pay tribute to this great comedic icon. They Bring Back Gene Wilder's Brain, Give Him Abby Normal's Brain, just so happened to be the winning team. Coincidence? May the great Wilder stay forever Young Frankenstein in our hearts! In a quiz filled with teams with surprisingly heavy and extensive knowledge of crappy

Hello Quizzers! The name is Jay and this Quizmaster's story begins in Skokie, Illinois, but since very few people from the Boston-area know where that is, let's just call it Chicago; I mean, its a direct subway line and only two towns over....FINE, I grew up in a suburb, are you happy now? Graduated from Babson College in 2013 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's in Accounting. I'm a nerd by day, and a geek by night. Decided to stay out here and give this East-coast thing a shot. I like to follow the Vin Diesel school of Geekdom. If you want to compare lifts and gym routines, I'll be there; but if you want to geek out, and I mean if you REALLY want to geek out, I'm your go-to-guy. -Music? 5x year attendee of Lollapalooza Music Festival, 3x Karaoke champion in 2008. I will stand firmly behind the idea that RHCP needs John Frusciante, Progressive R&B is the music of the future, and that Drum & Bass is the best EDM sub-genre. -Video Games? Been playing since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES, and haven't stopped since. FPS, MOBA, JRPG, MMORPG, whatever the hell Katamari Damacy was (other than completely awesome), I got you covered. -TV? I may or may not still reference lines from Archer, South Park, Futurama, and the Simpsons on a daily basis. -Movies? Been watching them constantly since my dad made me watch Bloodsport with Jean-Claude Van Damme at age 5. Favorite View Askew (Kevin Smith) comedies are Clerks and Chasing Amy, least favorites are Mallrats and Clerks II; I refuse to count Jersey Girl as an actual member of that universe. -General Geekiness? I had a 3-month stint as Dungeon Master for my D&D group, I hosted a LAN-party about a week before writing this bio, and I make sure to check IGN, Kotaku, and Reddit on a daily (closer to hourly)-basis With all that said, I hope to see you on the quizzing battlegrounds soon.

Do you like rabbits? I have a calendar.
RobinRyan

Tonight we mourn to the loss of another amazing celebrity.  The death of someone so beloved in the public light is always a challenge.  Gene Gone Wilder utilized it as their team name amidst calls of 'too soon' from the crowd.  I'll let this one slide.  First of all, these were the same guys that gave us the good laugh with Robin' Ryan Lochte last week.  Plus, we all know that pop culture and news typically makes it into team names.  I will still continue to shun all Harambe team names.  Just let it go.  In my zoo circles it is extremely painful to continuously bring up that tragedy. So lets change to a more light-hearted

2016 Takes Another
"Other" Eric

     In a day that saw 2016 take away another great, we kept it real classy at The Daily Grind. I heard the teams talking before quiz what his best movies were.  "Blazing Saddles", "Young Frankenstein", "Willy WOnka and the Chocolate Factory". All exceptional. Then, you had the Pryor years which were also great. One of my favorites, "Haunted Honeymoon". Him and Gilda at their prime. Yeah, I really hope he is with her now. They were the best.      Speaking of the best, how about you guys? You guys had really high scores tonight. I'm super proud!!!!      Congratulations to "Hershey Squirts" for being our Princes and Princesses

Twas a dark and stormy night, truly. It was cold and breeze, with rain driving through the open patio into the pub but I was not to be deterred. I’m quite stubborn in that regard. It’s amazing what a difference a few weeks can make. After suffering through some gnarly audio problems, every evening thereafter has had crystal clear sound. Regulars are starting to become regulars, no one is clapping their hands over their ears in a fever pitch and the positive feelings are palpable. It’s been a pleasure. Tonight there were some really fun rounds, especially the round with missing list items, and even better the round on techno

The One Where I'm Having Kidney Problems
AdrianTrevino

What a week it's been, ladies and gentlemen. It started off being awkward and weird, and then I fought through that initial awkwardness; went to the beach and had fun, watched all of the Back to the Future films, hung out at a bar and watched a UFC fight, got completely taken out of my element, and drove to San Antonio to eat In-N-Out Burger, among several other things I can't list here. On top of that, I'm looking into a possible career change that will get me out of my current "Millennial Income Despair," driven by the desire to own a home and provide for a future family, and success will be solely dependent on me and how badly I want it, and

OH GOSH, THERE'S SUPPOSED TO BE SOMETHING EXTREMELY FUNNY HERE, BUT I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING FUNNY TO PUT HERE, OH GOSH OH GOSH, WHAT AM I DOING I CAN'T COMPUTER TODAY.

 

Anyways! I love QMing, it beats the living HELL out of my day job; I play guitar and absolutely love Death Metal, and I like wearing cuban shirts and smoking cigars and watching Star Trek. I also like making dumb jokes.  I tend to stay towards the middle of the road when it comes to... well, anything. I also do a lot of referential humor, so this only helps but serve that purpose. And the purpose of having a night to go to a bar to drink. Yes.

 

Well.

Traffic and parking was a real problem this week as they decided to pave the road in front of Fado Irish Pub on the night of our beloved pub quiz! How dare they! But we still made it all happen, and with quite the quiz to boot! Highlighted mainly by a sans clothing Margaret Thatcher, birthday sex, cockfighting, Pornhub metrics, and D & D! One of these things is not like the other... We were low on teams but high on competition this week. Plumber's Crack showed too much with an impressive debut but fell late into second place.

Last night, quiz, as always, was dope. lots of great people showed out, we had lots of fun, the whole 9 yards. What I gotta say made it special, was Cory hookin yo boy, Quizmaster Adam, with a chocolate milkshake.  Can't say enough about this milkshake. Steak and Shake can go to hell for all I care. I dunno about In N Out, but fuck them too. Cory is where its at. Cherry on top, whipped cream everywhere, just thick enough to still go up the straw without having a brain aneurysm.  Hell yea. Next time you're hitting up the Guido quiz (which I know is next Sunday), you should hop on the Cory shake train.

Adieu to You
PFS

Well the summer is officially over for this large child. That's right, I'm still able to enjoy the carefree days of sleeping in late and sucking down otter pops at 1 in the afternoon, while simultaneously binge watching early seasons of The Jersey Shore...which, side note here, apparently aired for six fucking seasons, if anyone can believe that. Yeah, the sheer and utter laziness is gone because now I have to go back to freaking school. Not to study or better myself, or make a positive impact on my future, but to sub. Yes, I get the pleasure of having to prove myself to a new group of 12 year olds on a daily basis, trying desperately to remind myself that I'm not as bad as the children say

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!
