When Dr Nick asked me to cover for him so he could see Eddie Izzard, it felt much like being called up to the Majors... hosting at Piper Down felt like being welcomed home, but with a lot of beer. I forgot how much I miss being up on that stage- usually it's as scorekeeper though.Thank you to the awesome man who lent me his battery so that the music could continue. The WiFi having to be tethered from my phone is a sure way to kill your battery!So as I stepped up to the figurative plate last night, I thought I was nervously sweating bullets, but it was only the distinct lack of A/C reaching Heather and I on stage... OMG! It was so roasty up there! Beer was the best way

This One Time at Quiz Camp...
Metal Gretel

So last night was quite the doozy! There I go again using that word, doozy! As it is July now, it is officially time to worship ICE CREAM!!! As an ode to the month of screaming for ice cream we had to name all the sumptuous best sellers of Ben & Jerry's circa 2014. That guy Jeff who took it upon himself to talk my ear off while I was trying to grade your answers decided to buy shots for the team with the highest score in that one particular round. Why? Because he's from Vermont. Ice Cream is also from Vermont. Well, B&J's is at least. I can think of better more listeria laden brands.    Jeff, the guy buying Platypus Empire's shots, was an

Come On The New York Times!
AGreene

  I don't know if you know this. This needs to be national news, screw all these completely overblown politicians announcing they are running. No of that matters. What matters is the national travesty of that so called "newspaper" The New York Times. How dare they. How dare they what? You may be asking yourself dear, dear reader. How they announce that you should put peas in guacamole.    I mean is there nothing sacred anymore. NOTHING? I don't know what is right anymore.... Nothing... Everything is crazy. It might as well be upside down and topsy turvy. Everything is over. I mean peas in guacamole. Can you think of the children. And also my taste buds.

    Here are the things we now know to be true:   You guys impressed me on recent news, but a lot of you missed the Harry Potter one, so surprise! There's a new Harry Potter thingy.   Everyone, I order you to eat more ice cream, which now is justified as "quiz research." You can thank me next Wednesday.   Lobster round was a success, but the most missed was probably the fancy cooking one. I've never been to a place so nice that was on the menu either.   Everyone needs to pay more attention to the obscure band members, they matter too. On the upside most of you recognized Meg White,

I had a fantastic time training newbie Quizmaster, Kristin. She's gonna be our newest host in Flagstaff, AZ so look her quiz up if you're ever out there for... whatever reasons would take you to Flagstaff.   As for quiz, we started off with our current events round, where I'm pretty sure I made someone pee her pants (just a little bit) over the news of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Sadly, no one peed themselves over things that Antonin Scalia said. It was mostly retinas detaching from eyes rolling so far back into skulls.   Our music round featured the fantastic song I'm on a Boat. Fun fact, my wife played that song over and over again when we

A Quiz Free of Jiggery-Pokery
Sandip Gupta

Thanks for another great quiz! We had a lot of competitive teams and no own goals, so I'd call this a good night. Except for that time someone admitted they'd fuck Donald Trump. I guess I can't blame them, but they'll have to wait their turn after NBC. Scores today ranged from 5 to 80. Blame Canada broke their short streak of second places to take home the championship in convincing style. Catherine, humble as she is, insists that it was all about her. See, she happened to miss the last two weeks, and in neither week could the team get over the hump. But this week, with her back, they came in first and also broke 80 pts. I'll note their 15 pt music round that was jokered

In The Mood For A Few Pints
RyanSchofield

I'd say during your typical quiz I probably consume more beers than most players do.  Probably because I drink Bud Light, play up tempo music I enjoy, and seem to have my beer located in the perfect place to conduct the quiz like a drunken jazz musician.  However, given a couple of incidents in my personal life I decided taking a few days off might have been a good idea.  I'm thinking I'm going to be doing some kinda 10 days on, 3 days off thing, assuming those 3 days don't fall on weekends. If I'm not going to be drinking to excess, typically I enjoy replacing that with eating to excess.  Our quiz really put me to the test.  We had to guess the 10 best

Blame Canada, Indeed
Geoffrey

Wow, we had way more people than I expected! Everyone must’ve recovered from Pride weekend a little quicker than I had anticipated.   The quiz this evening was quite the spectacle. As usual all of our teams did a fine job answering questions. Although, there was a pretty steep dip in our second audio round. And to be honest, I may be a little scarred from some of those “Poo” themed songs.   The Last of the Mo’ Money Mo’ Hicans did a fine job and secured first place. Since I inadvertently misinterpreted a question in Round 8. We did a tie-breaker for Numb Lips & Full Bellies managed

Thank you to everyone who came out last night despite the torrential downpour. I appreciate the dedication. The quiz was great without any hang-ups to speak of. Coming in first place were team Kitty Biscuits, followed doggedly by team Jiggery Poke Her There. Both teams did well early, jokering in the second round, and maintained a lead throughout.

We All Scream For Ice Cream @ THE LABORATORY!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

Actually, please don’t scream, for ice cream or otherwise. Even if we’re talking about the best damn ice cream this side of the Missisippi, or otherwise, which would in fact be Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, DFA’s Americone Dream by one Ben and/or Jerry. That shit is deeeeelicious (mmm, waffle cone). Jimmy Fallon tried to make his own B&J pint, but it’s kind of half assed. Some crappy cookie dough thing…. Gimme’ a break. Although, Phish Food IS pretty amazing….. and at that, I’m gonna’ go grab some ice cream since it’s like six-billion degrees outside.   Things we learned this week:

You Can Always Be My Wingman
Michael Domangue

Independence day is our excuse to light large explosives and eat hot dogs filled with unspeakable meats. This is a good thing. With July now on the calendar we reach the peak summer season here in New Orleans and that means we reach a strange situation. NOLA is typically known as a city that slows down during the summer since the oppressive heat and kids out of school means a drop in the active population. However, the last two summers at Twelve Mile Limit have seen an uptick in team numbers. Last week we saw over twenty teams, and this week seventeen teams decided to drop in and take every single piece of real estate in the bar. I looked upon this sight from my newest perch. In the

A whirlwind of activity!
D'Nouncer Duane Cunningham

It was a big raucous night at the Burg. 26 teams. Tornado watch. Women’s Soccer. Aaron on scorekeeping duties. Burger grease. Tiebreaker round. Madness. And quite a few teams were new blood, seemingly, so that’s cool. Um, let’s see. The quiz featured rounds on ice cream, snails, non-American independence day, and plenty else. The Bastard Sons of Carl Sagan and the Barry Gibb All Stars wound up tied in the end, so we went to a tiebreaker, which Barry Gibb promptly aced, to take home the gold. It was lovely. There was no insane sing along moment like last week, but just a steady hum of wackiness from start to finish. What

Oh Canadaaaa!
Aubs

I do love me some Canada jokes, and  they were aplenty tonight as we celebrated Canada Day (and Canada’s birthday). Unfortunately for anyone who wanted a bar-tab, actual Canada knowledge was in short supply. For a nation that makes a whole lot of Canada jokes I think we know surprisingly little about what we are making fun of. Myself included; all I really know about Canada is that it super cold, everyone is really nice all of the time, except for when they are being really violent over hockey disputes, they love Tim Hortons and it’s home to Robin Sparkles. All of this is 100% true. Also, I have acquired 100% of my Canada knowledge from How I Met Your Mother.   Luckily,

Pop Culture Injustices
NicoleCrane

  Last night we had a perfectly lovely time at quiz. Things seemed great, the food was good, the music was good, the company was good.  It seemed like just another night.  Then we got hit upside the head with the fact that Pamela Anderson's show STACKED, in which she played a large breasted woman working in a book store (fish out of water, am I right ladies?  Books?!) lasted for 2 seasons.  TWO SEASONS!!!!! That means somehow it lasted an entire season and then the powers at be were like, why not, let's order another season.  I'd like to point out that this show lasted 2 seasons on FOX (of course), the same network that canceled Firefly after one season.
