Yes! A whole round on Mr. T! The famous mohawked badass from the 1980s who made fool pitying a thing. He made a career out of sporting the bling, stopping the jibba jabba, and channeling his anger on any fool, thug, or soul who tried to take over the world. He also has the greatest hair in the world, which he says has been proven by science. And I’m not about to doubt him, because that would make me a fool.

And that round came after a whole round on SPORTS. Which surprisingly was not over all of your heads, as the lowest score by any of my teams was a seven. In that round I read off sports terms and you had to guess what sport I was talking about. It was a very solid showing by all of you guys. And while not a sport, I would have laughed if one of you put down S&M for the buggy whip, brutalizer, bagel, break point, and backhand question.

There was also a round on Hawaii, a place I called home for two months. Which was just long enough to know to ask for the Kama’aina rate, and to correctly pronounce humuhumunukunukuapua’a, the name of Hawaii’s state fish. If you’ve ever sat in the booth behind me at quiz, you’ve probably seen my laptop’s screensaver: a collection of photos taken during my time on the island.

As for the quiz results, Watch Out, Butter! lurked outside of the top two for seven rounds before using a joker on the final round to take first place. Placing second was the return of Wyld Stallyns, though Case of the Mondays could have passed them had they used their joker more wisely.

Thanks to all who came out for the quiz. Enjoy your weeks, make smart choices, and come back next time for another Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz.

I’m going to give you something to work on this week, namely following directions. In last night’s round one, I said that all answers contained the letters P, L, U, T, and O. Then I read a question in which the answer was clearly the South Park movie, but the problem was that South Park by itself did not contain an L. Now the film’s actual title is South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, which does contain an L, and yet multiple teams thought that they could get by with just South Park Movie. Normally I’d give you the point if you’re in the ballpark, but when I give you a specific instruction like letters the answer must contain, then you have to give me an answer that follows that rule.

Now I’m curious, did my spelling of the word quoll help any of you in the Austria/Australia round? Were you guys sitting in your seats thinking, “If it’s spelled quoll then it’s Australian, but if it’s spelled kwoll then it’s Austrian?” I’m pretty sure that if you need me to spell something like that out, then you probably don’t know the answer and you should just flip a coin at that point. Tell me if I’m wrong. Let me know if spelling out quoll helped you out at all, and I’ll step off this soap box, but I’m pretty sure that it didn’t make a difference for any of you.

Anyways, I Googled quoll to see what it is and it’s actually a pretty dull creature, but far more interesting is the quokka. Nicknamed the Happiest Animal on Earth, the quokka always appears to be smiling. Its facial expressions are so pronounced that the #QuokkaSelfie is now a thing. People are getting quokkas to make human faces, then photographing themselves making that same face with the quokka. Seriously, look it up. The pictures make #NationalPuppyDay look like a poorly contrived Starbucks campaign.

About last night’s quiz, Name That Sphincter were the big winners, besting Jinx! You Owe Me Life in Prison by a meager two points. I had one team pass on using their joker for a 14-point score on round two. It wouldn’t have put them in first place, but it would have won them something. Learn to use your jokers people!

Thanks for coming out last night. Make good choices and I’ll see you all next week for another Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz. And if you haven’t heard already, Star Trek is coming this Saturday.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, or as I like to say, Happy Do the Same Thing You Do 100 Other Times a Year Just without the Color Coordination Day. Because let’s not kid ourselves here, half the people I know treat at least one weekend day a week with the same rage level as they treat 3/17. And I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, I’m just saying that we shouldn’t need a holiday to give us an excuse to get waste-faced; similar to how we shouldn’t need Valentine’s Day to remind us to do something nice for our significant others.

Anyways, we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz where it came right down to the wire. After trailing by a point going into the final round, Memories of Butter bested Heprechauns by two points in the final round to win last night’s quiz. It served as a reminder to pay attention to your Quizmaster as Heprechauns knew the answer to one of the round eight questions, but thought I was asking for the band when in fact I wanted the musician’s name.

All teams used their jokers on round two, which was smart because they all scored at least 12 points on it. The visual round saw a whole bunch of 6s and 8s, and the vast majority of you know your Honest Trailers.

Thanks for coming to the quiz. Don’t forget that we’re doing a Star Trek themed quiz on March 28th at another Geeks venue in Boston. Read about it on our website. Make good choices and come back next week!
