Hi Everyone,

This is Snarky Shark. I'm the current host of the GeeksWhoDrink Pubquiz over at the Lunchbox Laboratory in South Lake Union.

As for me, I'm pretty much a Seattlite. Sure, I've lived all over the Western United States, but I definitely call this place my home. 

Personally, I dig science questions. Why? Well, in real life <le sigh> I'm a graduate student in the Department of Biochemistry in the University of Washington. Though, I can't say I've ever made a Kool-Aid cocktail as is the case with the Lunchbox Lab.

I really enjoy the regular players, with their funny quirks. As well as the hopeful glean in the eyes of the newbies who think they can win. (How quickly those hopes are shattered...)

Need a ringer for Chemistry? Biochemistry? Weird Geological Distributions of Heavy Metals? (Music and otherwise?) I can help with that. However, if you're on the other side of the quiz...I can't help you. But you're going to need it.

See you then.

April 14th, 2014 - The Blarney Stone

Admittedly, I should have known that trying to listen to clips from 'Between two Ferns' would be a bit difficult is a bar, but I was going to Galafinish that round anyway.

Tonight, The Blarney Stone was joined by a few new teams.Team 'Pho' started off strong, but found that Random knowledge has a way of turning the tables in the final round of quiz. On top of that, team 'The Concept' took home half the bonus Question pints with some intense knowledge of questions that left the other teams stumped. In fact, there was some border-line pre-cognition stuff going on with one team member turning in the answer before I finished half the question.
Spooky.
But enough tales on that feat. How did the rest of The Blarney Stone do in tonight's game?

The select few have some comprehension of:

Round 1: He ruins everything! Each answer contains letters from the name 'Michael Bay'.
&
Round 6: Old Country Music A round on muscial Jews.

But they could not have prepared for:

Round 3: A timed round on the works of Mike Judge.

Being a fan of his work was just not enough...
&
Round 7: Audio round from Between two Ferns.

Name the word being replaced by 'Galifinakis'. I was reminded that there are a number of word for 'muff', but only one answer could snatch the point for the question.
Interesting mix of teams here at The Blarney Stone, tonight, but what lies in store for next week? Will team 'Fluffy Bunny Terror Squad' inspire actual terror? Will 'The Concept' become something more? and is 'Pho' pun-worthy?
Find out. Next week!

At The Blarney Stone.

April 7th, 2014 - The Blarney Stone

The comic book theme continues in this week's Visual Round: Cross-hatching is for the weak. In which players were to guess the comic book character from the picture given. Sure, they did well, but Good Team "Good FRAU" caught some spotlight for their:"Sexual Heroes" rendition. Who appears on this randy roster?

1. The Silver Slurper

2. Guy Cocks

3. Tit Girl

4. The Dick

5. Swamp Ass

6. The THANG

7. Water Sports

8. House of Menstration.

Ok, that last one wasn't so great, but well played.
So, how did the rest of the Blarney Stone fare? They are an effective team when it comes to facing down:

Round 3: Knife or Banana? Which one was I talking about?

&

Round 5: Cross-hatching is for the weak...

Dat Visual Round...
However, their biggest weakness might be:

Round 2: Audio Round with a Baseball theme

Round 7: Remember me? I was on a Cheers...

Audio Round to guess the movie based off the appearance of an actor from cheers.

&

Random Knowledge

That might be the worst one of all.

The Bunch at The Blarney Stone are fairly evenly matched.Despite trailing in the beginning, Deep Fried Chow Mein sprang back in the final round, but it was not enough to leave last place.What did remain from that aftermath was a difference in 2 point between first and last place! Teams EVIL FRAU and "Happy Birthday Snarky Shark!" battled it off in a sudden death match that left EVIL FRAU in the dust. Good FRAU prevailed over all. A true comic-book finish.

With the NCAA out of the way, will we see more sports fanatics atthe Stone? Or will they be replaced by canine aficianados? Where did all the damn googly eyes come from? And just what do the sexual heroes have to say about that?

Find out next week. 

At The Blarney Stone!

March 31st, 2014 - The Blarney Stone

Well. well. well. Here we are again.

(Insert pun on archaic water sources...)
PubQuiz has restarted at the Blarney Stone. A new location on 1st Ave.

Time to break it in.
Tonight we saw the return of popular teams

- Happy Birthday Snarky Shark

- Happy Birthday Jesse Brown! (Which we all know as FRAU.) and fan favorites

- Deep Fried Chow Mein

For some, it had been a while since they had been to pubquiz.

At least, that was their excuse. For others, their first time!

How did they do in their second origin story?

They seem to have some uncanny knowledge of:

Round 1: This round is a Bitch. Wherein all answer rhymed with bitch.

&

Round 6: Time for some culture. A round on yogurt.

(Obligatory pun about that being the most culture they've ever had.)
However, we have revealed their true weakness in knowledge of:

Round 4:Netflix! (Actually a round on volleyball and boogers...)

&

Random Knowledge!

(Shakes head in dismay...)
Despite that, I feel that they would have done well had there been an entire round on Netflix.
Near the middle of the quiz, I took time to surprise loyal quiz-player Jesse Brown on the Eve of her Birthday with a timely themed gift. A handful of dick-shaped confetti to the face. Happy Birthday Jessi Brown, indeed.

In the aftermath of Emerald City Comic-Con, The Blarney Stone has restarted with an outrageous origin story, but that only prompts further questions. Will similar confetti-themed hi-jinks ensue? Or will petty tricks be revamped with a Wheadonesque story arc? Will the cast of a cult classic make a cameo? and just how much more outlandish can these questions get?

Find Out. Next week! At The Blarney Stone!

Same Snark time. Same Shark Channel.
