CLAY-TON, The Imposter

Wow, what a difference a few weeks makes! The last time I was ‘round these parts, I had just two people playing. Tonight, I had a full six teams of smiling faces ready to quiz all night!   Tonight’s quiz could be described as “Continental”, and that continent was Europe. We had rounds covering Great Britain and Bulgaria, the former of whom we learned is considering leaving the European Union, putting the matter to a vote in 2017.   What else? We learned that Adam Sandler only has three generally favorable reviewed films on metacritic, one of which is Top Five, and who knew he was in that?   We had

Wherein Team AJ chats about OvenCars
Team AJ

Jeremy: So yeah. 103 today. Sitting in the DEQ line. Had to turn off the engine because it was overheating just idling there. Before I realize it, I'm sitting in an oven. But! As Angela predicted, my car passed! Angela: You say that like it's a bad thing. Oven schmoven. Jeremy: Yeah opening the doors on 103 was breezy. Angela: And yes, YAY for DEQ passing! That is ALWAYS a good feeling! Who DOESN'T stress about that? Jeremy: It's so stressful! My car isn't HEALTHY? What the hell do I do about it? I can change these things out *pop pop pop* go the sparkplugs. But half the time whatever you try to fix doesn't work. I have these stories... That poor Civic has lasted

Your face is so beautiful I just wanna smash it
Robynne

Punch Drunk Love is one of my favorite movies, and tonight I learned that EITHER a) very few people know about/remember it, OR b) very few people think it a very good film. The only team that listed it when trying to name the three “generally favorable” Adam Sandler films was Kill a Lion? That’s a paddlin’, and I am glad to know that they, at least, knew of this wonderfully strange movie and thought to include it in their answer. That team, by the way, also gave me my favorite answer of the game, in the form of JK Rowling’s famous novel A Wee Bit of Murder, Guvna. That question was a hard one, and I read a few

Tom Jones Is Now The Official Play Off Music At GLC
ChristopherRounsville

Are there any objections to that?  If there are, well too damn bad.  That man has the voice of an angle, and an acute one at that.  There was a bit by a comedian about playing Tom Jones' "What's New Pussycat" 2 dozen times in a row, only interupted once by "It's Not Unusual".  It's a hilarious bit, you know that show "Mulany" that you didn't watch? It's by the same guy. Don't worry, I didn't/don't watch it either.  Is it still even on?  As with how many licks to the center of a Tootsie Pop, the world may never know.  Also, I'm happy to say that GLC has some new artwork on the wall.  I'm happy to be a small part of what makes this bar fantastic,

Hey, guys!Do you know what you win if you know the city that Anheuser Busch just relocated their headquarters to? A free beer.What about if you have the most clever team name? A free beer.What if you just happen to walk up my QM table at the right moment? Yep, free beer!That's because the makers of Budweiser came by Icenhauer's last night and dropped off a bunch of cold ones for us to consume at our leisure.Or very quickly in the final couple of rounds.Yeah, that sounds more accurate. Because I noticed a marked increase in team members shouting and whooping and generally being rowdy in those last rounds.Of course, with all that beer and all that competition,

The One Where I Rant About Game Hunting
Patsquatch

So I wasn’t really going to write about this but since several team names referenced it I feel like it is clearly on people’s minds. I am really pretty upset about the Cecil the lion business for a number of reasons but I am also annoyed by some of the people I have seen on Facebook thought policing it like you should be more upset about other issues instead of that one. As if one awful thing means that you can’t care about another awful thing. Kind of like people who claim that Caitlyn Jenner can’t be brave because soldiers exist. I really hate that kind of shit. There is plenty of bravery to go around just like there is plenty of awful shit around to be upset about. As

The Teapot from Murder She Wrote
Rev. Lindsay

Well, we can’t have 26 teams every week, but god bless the 18 teams that did grace us with their presence.  We love you long time!  My favorite was the team that answered “The Teapot from Murder She Wrote” instead of Angela Lansbury.  I can’t give you a point, but you do get the blog named after you, ‘cause I try to be fair. Tonight’s FB game was to draw me a monster doing a mundane task.  I received three entries.  One was an imaginary monster in a tutu sweeping, one was Frankenstein’s Monster sweeping (best artistry), and then the winner… something like a flying purple people eater getting out today’s

Lindsay enjoys writing bios for other people much more than for herself, and she really hates people (herself included) who speak in the third person.

The End
Joel Wassner, Sandwich Lover

Everything has an end. Even the most amazing things end after a while, and the worst things end after a while too. Some marriages don't last, just like that 1/2 off pizza deal at that one place will eventually end. Wars have an end too, just like your workday mercifully has an end. It's just the way the world works. Logically, when something has a beginning, it must also have an end.   Perhaps it is only fair that things end, otherwise they would just go one forever and ever. I mean, I have a good time at the amusement parks, but if I had to stay there forever, I'd probably go insane. If you get a pizza, there's only so much pizza to eat, and eventually you will run out.

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.

You Don't Have to be Queen to afford Breast Implants

Prospectors was double alive this week as they tackled the challenging rounds of the eve. The whole joint agreed that Adam and Annie should NEVER team up. Alas, they are totally cool sharing all of their prizes. As well as first place with 57 points, Harry Karstens & His Blow Up Dall Sheep took several of the bonus rounds as well as the prize for best team name (they know that the thought of having an torrid affair with a Dall sheep gets me goin’.) Aren’t you glad that you paid attention to Animaniacs? Second place was Salmon Lox with 35 points. I kind of imagined a salmon with blond curly hair and a bikini. She’s up to

Pepsi! Pepsi perfect!
McFly

I am not sure what exactly Pepsi Perfect is or was (was it a thing?) but I know that is what Marty Jr. orders in Back to the Future 2. What could be so perfect about a Pepsi? We've had Pepsi Free (Free of calories and caffeine) and Crystal Pepsi… maybe Perfect is some sort of specially brewed clear Pepsi used with the water of melted glaciers sans caffeine and calories? Either way, I want to be able to order one in October (per the movie) and have it rise out of the counter top. Only delivered by a Max Headroom's version of Ronald Reagan. My god. What writers thought that the power of Max Headroom would have evolved into the 21st century? The foresight of our past writers/directors

Trump v. Fieri
SuperMallory

Donald Trump is to politics in the same way Guy Fieri is to food. Cite: Bad hair: is there really that big of a difference between what they are doing? Denying the continuing progress of age, as harsh as it is to them both, in a fashion that is simultaneously sad and forward-thinking. Delusions of Grandeur: watching an episode of Drive-Ins, Dives and Douchebags (which people insist on calling the “Triple D” and that is just too easy a mark to aim for comedy-wise,  you know what I mean?) is meant to be entertaining, but… No. NO! And Guy thinks it is, I am sure, and then there’s the Donald, which is meant to be serious, but which is…

Mallory is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. Mallory was depicted in ancient seals of the Poudre Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers. The Bible also describes an animal, the re'em, which some translations have rendered with the word Mallory.

The earliest description is from Ctesias who, in his book On India, described Mallory as fleet of foot, having a horn 27 inches in length, and colored white, red and black. Aristotle must be following Ctesias when he mentions two one-horned animals, the oryx and the so-called "Mallory".
