"U Cannae Touch This" by McHammer

  No, I was NOT Wearing a Homburg.   But I could have been. Pretty sure I have one somewhere... I definitely don't have a Barong. Or anything close to one. (It's a fancy kinda shirt from the Philippines, or thereabouts.)   Oh, and apparently when you really really need a shitload of champagne, they start naming those sizes after Biblical figures, for reasons which are now lost to the ages. Names like Balthazar, and Nebuchadnezzar. And, I mean, it's like for when you need a SHITLOAD

Close Quiz, Hawaiians Who Cheat, and Wonky Team Names
"Other" Eric

     Where to begin? I actually have a lot to talk about tonight, so let's start with our friends in the Aloha State. A big part of our quiz is not to cheat. Really, if you have to cheat at a free quiz, you are probably voting for Donald Trump, so STOP! I also like to use that prison rules are in effect, so if we catch you cheating I will go around with my sock that has the bar of soap in it and will give you your own blanket party. Hawaii found quite a unique way to cheat, by reading blogs of quizzes completed earlier in the night and searching for answers...(Actually, bravo for taking advantage of the time zones, but now it's never going to happen again,

Thoroughly Mediocre Quiz Night Title
Amanda

Tonight was a tough quiz and you all did a great job for how hard it was.  I really hope that the team The Pug Life Chose Me, I didn't choose the Pug Life was able to go home to their pugs to get comfort from them.  However, CAKE came in first barely beating out Groucho Marxists and Bubble Gun.  Unfortunately even though the Groucho Marxists were in second place the whole time at the end, after one of the hardest round eights ever, Bubble Gun pulled out and beat them by a mere point value

Suddenly…Epistaxis!
CLAY-TON, The Impostor

Hello humans and those of you with the professional name Kyle King. Yes, that was your usual QM Kyle King and his badass Deadpool tattoo in the house prior to Quiz tonight. He’d called me in to cover for him while he rocked out with his cock out at the Open Air Fest this afternoon. Or at least he planned to rock out with his cock out at Open Air Fest if it hadn’t been for the weather. It’s kind of hard to have big musical events outdoors while it’s raining, and it’s neigh on impossible once it starts thundering and lightning. Lives could be lost. While that scenario is pretty metal, the ensuing lawsuits are definitely not.   So Open Air threw

Brunch day is hard y'all.  All you do is get drunk and eat a bunch of delicious food.  I did the same thing AND I had to pretend like I gave a shit about my father's birthday even though he's out eating a fancy dinner which he couldn't fucking reschedule to a more convenient time because FUCK I WANT THAT LOBSTER AND STEAK SO BADLY.  You didn't know it was his birthday, nor did you know a lot about birthdays in Round 1.  I survived.  It's fine.  The fried cheese kinda made up for it.   Here's what happened during the quiz: Arnold Palmer died.  The Cowboys scored all the points.  The ending of Clue was rewritten to include Mrs. White

On Pretty Blonde Girls
DeNov!

Greetings, Cyclers! I knew it was gonna be a helluva night when Elyse walked by and casually noted, “you’re not the pretty blonde girl.” WHAT?!?!?!?!111! That sent me into quite the existential tailspin, as I was operating under that exact assumption for weeks. Time to take a good look in the mirror, regroup and decide how to define myself now. Big ups to the Rocky Mountain Roller Girls for hanging out with us last night. A bunch of you folks are gonna go see them for free next Saturday. The rest of you cats can still go too! Next Saturday, 10/1 at the Fillmore. Roller derby has just the perfect amount of mayhem to leave you feeling whole on

The Original Hippie
Meggan

Oh it's so nice to be back with my pals at Portland Brewing Company! Vacation is nice, but home is where the Quiz is. My family and I just returned from two weeks in Brazil visiting the in-laws and doing all the touristy stuff. So of course we went up to Corcovado Mountain to see the giant Cristo Redentor, or Christ Redeemer, and my four year old son was a little puzzled. He thought this huge statue was awesome, but he doesn't know who Jesus is. He kept calling him "the dude on the mountain" and imitating the wide arm stance. I told him some typical millennial non-religiously-affiliated nonsense and let him know he can believe whatever he wants to believe, but I think if he asks

Free is My Favorite Type of Cake
QM Conrad S

Another great contest Left Coast Brewery this week. The two teams who tied each other and had to go into a sudden death round came back, and were back and forth against each other all night. In fact, we had a dead tie after round 6 and after round 7. Not until the completion of round 8 did We’re Not in Kansas Anymore edge a 2 point lead to take the victory over Complyin’ Ted. Of all quizzes, presidential knowledge was a huge factor tonight. We learned that most of you don’t have a lot of presidential knowledge…. Presidential Trivia came up in three different rounds. After round 3 (Sooner or Later) I played you all the Animaniacs’

NOTHING! Don't ask whether Johnny Spot won.  Don't ask whether the sound worked. Don't ask what the questions were about. Don't ask whether people "had fun" whatever that means. Don't ask what music I played. Don't ask which old friend abused the camera policy. Don't ask which new friends abandoned me for sand volleyball. Don't ask when Stef is returning. Don't ask whether Ben looked good in his tank top. Don't ask how many shots I did. I don't remember. Next week, SteF'up some tacos, yo.

Seriously. Last night was an absolute blast and it's all because of you. I hope you know that. If you don't, well, then, you should, dangitalltoheck. The quiz was a lot of fun in its own right, but the back and forth is what really made it fun. There was some smack talk, there were some awesome incorrect answers and there was an amazing vibe from the room at large. If you've not been in recently, or at all, then you need to come down and join the party next time!   There's magic in the air recently in Spokane.

Oktoberfest
Ben

So until this year I have never actually been able make it out to an Oktoberfest celebration out here, or anywhere for that matter. I have nothing against the concept or anything, and I am generally a fan of Oktoberfest beers, I just have never gone to a specific event. That changed this weekend, when a couple members of Bad Guessers and myself went out to the Oktoberfest at McKinney Square. Of course there was beer, and asstons of people, but my favorite thing? The food. I couldn’t stop eating. I started off with a jalapeno cheddar bratwurst, which I partially blame on Thomas, who couldn’t decide where he wanted to get food from, and it was actually pretty

Geeks Who Drink: Chainmail Edition
QM Rebecca

What a wild and crazy night!  We had 20 teams, including a bachelorette party.  I personally think Geeks Who Drink is the perfect way to spend your last night of freedom. We started out the night with Role Call.   I gave you a clue and three actors and you named the role they all played at one time in either movies or television.  The first audio round for the night was call: Don't. Just Don't.  Teams had to name the song and artist for a point each, as usual. Or don't. We don't care.  If you picked up on all the not-so-subtle hints, most teams figured out that all of the song titles included the word Don't.  Next was a sooner or later round

Where Was I Born Again? The Bayou? I Remember Now!
SirYon

So tonight’s quiz was very presidential. And enlightening. Bringing to light some of what made them famous, and also notorious (ahem…Depp Throat…ahem). Excuse me. And apparently we were dealing with a room full of millennial quizzers, because none of you knew who James Brady is. Or I should say was, as he has passed on. Semantics.   A little education on James Brady…He was born in Centralia, Illinois and was Ronald Reagan’s press secretary at the beginning of his administration. He was one of the four people, including Reagan, who was shot by John Hinckley, Jr. outside the Washington Hilton in 1981. Brady took the first bullet above his

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

 

Drink responsibly and keep your minds open, y'all.

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog! We’re recapping a great Saturday night at Darcy’s where we learned a bunch, made fun of each other for what we didn’t know, and listened to a lot of 90s alternative rock. It was a dream.   Unfortunately, every single one of you has been personally victimized by Frontier Airlines and thusly knows that Denver is the main hub city for Frontier.

The Highest Form of Comedy
Weapon Z

There seemed to be a bit of a theme among out team names tonight.  Take a minute and check over the team names to see if you can see it.  Or maybe you can smell it. Scatological humor is truly the highest form of comedy.  Take a physiological process that we all experience.  Combine it with social shaming.  Stir it up a bit.  Garnish it with some stank.  Comedy gold.  So, Fart, The Fart Colons, and Stinky & the Beans well done putting your collective smells in the room.  Hope you brought enough air freshener for everyone.

Quizmaster Zach is an avid fan of Rush: the Holy Triumvirate, and spends the majority of his free time watching irreverent comedies such as Portlandia, Trailer Park Boys and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. When he is away from the television he plays ice hockey (poorly), hosts quiz (poorly) and eats food (poorly). To be honest, QM Zach does most things poorly but that's easily overlooked because he is so good looking. The only thing he is good at is doing a karaoke version of YYZ. You can see QM Zach live and in person and judge him accordingly every Saturday night at 8:00 PM at Krazy Karls pizza. Just don't look directly into his eyes. You might never be able to look away.

Good Week
DJ ROB ROB

Typically, right after I get home from quiz at The Ute and Yeti on Saturday nights, I get right to writing my quiz before going to bed. I believe it's best to just take care of it immediately rather than put it off and not have time the following day or, even worse, forget completely. However, last night I was about 70 pages away from finishing The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla and I wanted to finish it instead. I started The Dark Tower series about 4 weeks ago and have completely blazed through it faster than I've read any other books. I even read the smaller book he wrote 10 years later that fits between Book 4 and Book 5. Anyway, I finished it last night. I'm
