Cats!
Joel Wassner, Sandwich Lover

Cats are totally misunderstood. As someone who grew up with dogs, I myself did not understand cats until I adopted my own cat from the streets, James A. Garfield. He is a super chill cat. He doesn't go out of his way to love on you, because that's what dogs do and Garfield is a cat.   That's the part that I don't think cat haters understand. Cats are not dogs, and should not be judged against them. I love dogs, and the kind of love and affection that dogs show is great in its own right. When you come home after a day of work or school, a dog is going to go bananas. Everything in the dog's life is about you at that moment, and they get exceedingly thrilled to see you. A

What do you put in these spaces? I'm a 26 year old Hoosier, still trying to survive in Texas. I like pizza, sleeping, having fun, breathing, and other things like that. I do not like socks/shoes, brussel sprouts, anything from Wisconsin, and people who are dicks to other people. I never grew out of my dinosaur phase.

Go Cubs.

Interpretive Jiggery Pokery
The Insidious Dr. Badnasty

Tonight was super fun, despite my own multiple reading issues. We had twenty folks and five teams competing tonight, and some fun questions to boot. I was shocked by how awful you guys were with Ben & Jerry’s flavors! I’d have schooled all of you. Round 6 was tough for all of you, too. With a high score of 4, you all don’t know too much about the independence of other countries.Our highest scoring team was My, How the Tables Have Turned, who were obviously sore that their usual table was occupied this evening. Second went to Ezekiel 25:17, with their extensive knowledge of barnacle penises. They also provided my favorite wrong answer this evening. Failing to remember

Pub Quiz: International Style
Koby

After last week's record-setting crowd of 22 teams, it was nice to have a group of 15 teams. Still busy enough to make things fun and interesting, but not busy enough to make the wait-staff hate me.   There were many international flavors in this week's quiz. From the money woes of Greece and Puerto Rico, to Declarations of Independence from all over, to two national treasures of Canada (Dan Aykroyd and Pam Anderson, of course). Many did great naming the songs and artists in Round 2, only to be really disappointed when they had to name 8 Ben & Jerry's flavors in Round 3.   There were many valiant efforts to make it to the top of the heap

Are You A Nick Walker Fan?
CoryChambers

Regular readers of this blog will know that I lose my shit every time I have the opportunity to make a Gilmore Girls reference.  Tonight's round 8 had a question on meteorologists, which of course cued one of my favorite Babette quotes.  Babette, for those of you who don't know (for shame!) is Lorelei and Rory's nutty neighbor, as played by Sally Struthers.  In the final episode (S7E22, "Bon Voyage", thankyouverymuch) Babette announces that it's going to rain on the big going-away party that the town is going to throw for Rory, as she is on her way to cover the Barack Obama campaign (dear god, the nostalgia!)  She runs up to Luke to point out her

Who You Gonna Call? Not Ghostbusters, Pam…
Elise

Whew! What an evening! We were many teams deep (hehehe, she said deep) and had a super close game for most of the evening. The situation turned into a race to the jokered end, with a tie for 3rd and a battle for 1st.     Let’s just say that Canada wasn’t at the top of your list tonight, since our questions didn’t have anything to do with Robin Sparkles. You were CERTAIN that between Pamela Anderson and Dan Akyroyd there was bound to be an answer that was Ghostbusters, but it was not to be. Of course, between Soul Man and Stacked, we were set for the evening.     I was impressed with

Elise (n): a real life muppet.

Hailing from the great state of Ohio (O-H...I-O!), Elise has lived in New Mexico for 10 years now, and as such, believes that the nickname the "Land of Entrapment" applies. In the 'possibly never getting out' way, not the 'illicit solicitation' way.

Things Elise can't live without: Diet Coke, good grammar, an exorbitant number of shoes, the Muppets and other various Jim Henson creations, a Downbeat on the One, and the never-ending yet enjoyable search for the perfect Bordeaux. Practice makes perfect...

More often than not, she can name that tune in 2 notes, Tom.

One Question Concerning Vonnegut, and I Fan-Girl SO HARD!
Marianne No Filter

Vonnegut was a literary genius. I went on a serious Vonnegut binge. Reading whatever I could find. Whatever he produced. Everything. And every story I’ve read by him, has changed me. His true literary genius was proven to me in his book, “Man Without a Country.” Which is basically, I would say, a political biography about how he feels about all kinds of things. There are many favorite quotes from this book, but, it gets truly interesting when he writes of the letters he’s received from “fans.” My favorite has got to be this excerpt:   “A young man in Seattle recently wrote me:

She's licensed in massage therapy, but refuses to touch anyone, after having numerous clients "make things weird," certified in grades 1-6 and special education (and nearly finished her masters in literacy), and has a bachelors in health science.

Okay, you read these blogs each week (sometimes), thinking you may get something useful. If you haven’t, here’s my attempt to change that. I’m going to tell you how to be rich. That’s right, even richer than Jeb Bush, who released his tax returns today. First off, make sure you’re contributing to your company’s 401(k) plan if they offer any sort of match. Don’t worry if you can’t contribute the maximum to get the match, that’s free money that the company is giving you. Then, once you have that down, make sure your bills are paid. If they’re

“Enough is enough!!!” exclaimed Sloopy. Having spent a lot of time in Canada, Sloopy understood that today was Canada Day, but this asshole quizmaster playing nothing but Canadian songs was a bridge too far. As much as a bit of Metric and Feist were OK, there was no way in hell he was going to listen to Anne Murray and Loverboy.   Despite his coke and alcohol fueled rage, Sloopy was still on his perch when Snowbird started playing. Thankfully, he’d also decided tonight was a good night for quiz. Adjusting his pants, Sloopy listened attentively to the scores being announced. Since he’d begun listening to NPR again,

Tonight was my first time subbing in for Andrew, and boy was I excited!  At 7:25 it was me and the fantastic staff upstairs…and crickets.  Thankfully, members from Team Twinkies decided to come in for their 2nd and 3rd time.  We also had a new 4-member team of trivia experts who decided to give the GWD Pub Quiz a try.  Not wasting a moment, both teams jokered round 1 and went into round 2 tied.  The Human Shields had a slight advantage in round 2 from recognizing both Rihanna (yes, there’s an ‘h’ in her name) and Pink Floyd, and slowly added 1-2 points per round.

You're 5000 Beers in the Glass
Ptera Dactyl

The Blame Canada round only brought to light that we have surprisingly few South Park themed questions. What is up with that? I’m betting “Go Ask Alice” was about as effective at keeping kids away from drugs as D.A.R.E. was, which is to say “very little”. Now, we had a round that was half marijuana, half swimming questions. The next step is a whole round, and then a whole quiz! #legalizeit quiz 2016, talk to your local lawmakers about it! And speaking of #s, how unfair is it that “octothorpe” is out, even though it’s the more established term, and “hashtag” is in? Oh words. Oh Enghlish, you ever-evolving

Single White Quizmaster Seeks Spirited Dancers

The quiz tonight consisted of current events, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, crustaceans, Pamela Anderson, history, blah blah blah…   Let’s be honest with each other, reader: You don’t want to read a simple recap of the quiz, and I don’t want to write that dull summary, either. What we both want to see on this page is a brief course of events that eventually leads into a full blow-by-blow analysis of an epic end-of-the-evening dance-off that sends the Potsdam faithful buzzing into the night.

Eye Scream
Amanda

I remember a long time ago I walked into a Baskin Robins and was amazed! I’m a small town kid so that many flavors of ice cream was mind blowing. I remember they had a flavor of ice scream called “Eye Scream for Ice Scream” and it just blew my mind. I don’t think I ever realized that that eye and I were the same basically (hey, I was like 6 so leave me be). I distinctly remember thinking, “I bet that is the best ice cream in the whole world” and so I got it. Let me ruin the surprise, it isn’t. It was actually super gross and I think that might be my first memorable let down. You know what isn’t a letdown though, you guys. The
