Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at the fine establishments of Natty Greene's and East Village in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Comcast has been in the news lately, and - surprise! - it’s because they treated someone like shit. In this particular case, someone was trying to cancel their service, and the customer service rep just wasn’t having it. The rep continued to grill the customer, asking why they wanted to cancel service with the company boasting the #1 TV service and #1 internet service in the U.S. 

What I don’t think most people realize is that this guy is just doing his job. Seriously. I’ve seen the Comcast Customer Service Manual. In it you will find page upon page detailing the “nightmarish” behavior we have all heard about Comcast. As it turns out, they aren’t really assholes - they just think what they are doing is "great" customer service.

Take for instance our jilted customer service rep mentioned mere sentences ago. He refuses to take no for an answer because he’s abiding by the “Act like your girlfriend just broke up with you, and beg/plead with the customer until he/she takes you back” rule. The Manual states the act works 100% of the time in real life when trying to win back the affections of a former lover, so “why wouldn’t it work with customers?”

Also, what the customers calling in to cancel their service don’t realize is that the Comcast reps aren’t even given a button or link to cancel a user’s account. On page 78, subsection 4 - titled “There’s No Such Thing as Cancelling” - you will find an explanation of how you actually go about canceling your account:

You will receive piece of junk mail labeled “Kroger Weekly Ad”. This piece of paper is actually a subtle missive sent from Comcast containing the phone number to call to start the canceling process. The number can be found by adding up the sales price of Dr. Pepper and Sargento Mexican Blend shredded cheese, squaring it, and multiplying by the cost of 2.34 lbs of snow crab - market price, of course.

Call that number. You are then greeted by Victor Cruz, wide receiver for the New York Giants. He says, “Thank you for calling Time Warner Cable. Someone will be with you shortly.” This is a ruse meant to make people think they are calling the wrong Satan, but I assure you this is the right place.

After waiting on hold for 23 minutes, a reggaeton air-horn blares in your ear, alerting you that you have made it to the final stage. Here you will listen to every album and guest spot that Sean Paul sang on. If you can make it through the eight hours of incessant “JAH JAH JAH,” you have earned the right to cancel your account.

 

Help us, Google Fiber. You’re our only hope.

Through thunder, lightning, and rain, sixteen teams came out to try and take home our top two prizes. ThunderBummer was inspired by the storm, and they held down the first place spot the entire night. Behind them by merely three points was Q + Anus who showed they were the second brightest star(fish) this evening. Excelente!

—————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- Little Richard did not sing “Splish Splash.” He was too busy singing about tutti fruity booties or something.

- When asked if fish can smell, one group responded, “Yeah. Bait works.”

- Regarding the Church of England’s recent addition of women to the bishopshoodship - I think that’s what it’s called? - one group (incorrectly) answered “homosexuals” and felt the need to clarify by adding “gay dudes” right after that. Now you’re wrong twice. Good job.

- A snow plow parent does not exist, but I’m sure it feels that way to some kids.

- NO KICKS TO THE FACE.

Awesome Team Name Shout-Outs!:

- Q + Anus

- 2nd to Last Gets the Beers (Not this week, fellas.)

- Former Soccer Fans

- When It Rains, It Porns

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at the fine establishments of Natty Greene's and East Village in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

A few of our teams tonight illustrated how important spelling is in certain circumstances, as it can have a drastic effect on how one is supposed to interpret what he/she is reading. Take for instance tonight’s question asking our quizzers to identify the name of the character Famke Janssen played in the X-Men movies. A surprising amount of you wrote down “Gene Grey” instead of the correct, normal spelling “Jean”.

Instead of picturing the red-headed babe we’ve all come to know and love as Jean, I couldn’t help but picture Famke undergoing a Rebecca Romijn-level of prosthetic makeup everyday to resemble some old dude named Gene. Instead of the X-Men suit, Gene wears khaki pants pulled up to the belly button with a Tommy Bahama shirt tucked in, has cottony white hair pushed underneath a bucket hat he just got from his last fishing trip somewhere in Florida, and sports eyeglasses with lenses so thick that they had to have been used as Coke bottle bottoms in a previous life.

Gene Grey’s superpowers would remain unchanged, though. He would still be able to read your mind. However, it’s not for the world-saving, altruistic reasons Jean uses her powers for (obviously before she goes nuts and turns into the Phoenix). No, Gene will read your mind in the same way every other elderly curmudgeon does - “You think you know more than me, don’t you? WELL, YOU DON’T. I CAN TELL.”

It’s everyone’s worst nightmare - an old man who knows he’s telling you the same story you’ve heard over and over again, but he still proceeds to tell you the story. Because he knows you can’t stand it.

For our two-year anniversary quiz, one of our teams tried their damnedest to chalk up another milestone victory for their record books. However, the team that won our first quiz and our one-year ann’y quiz last year, The Sophomore Slump Is Finally Over!, finished two points shy of making it a second year in a row. Taking home our first place prize was We Don’t Always Lose, But When We Do, It’s Not As Badly As Brazil whose grammar was as impeccable as their quiz skills tonight. Like a terrible steak, well done tonight, every one.

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is not the six-word book title I was looking for in a question about Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl.

- One group heard a clip from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and thought it was from Air Bud. Makes sense.

- As delicious as Long Johns are, there is, sadly, not a town called Long Johnsonville named for them.

- Parma and Milwaukee are sisters. That’s cute.

- I apologize to everyone who has had their brain forever stained by that Linkin Park/Britney Spears mashup.

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at the fine establishments of Natty Greene's and East Village in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Fourth of July weekend is nigh, and many will be flocking to their nearest movie theater or Redbox for a cinematic escape. Fortunately for you all, I’ve seen a bunch of shitty movies lately, and I’m going to try to save you some time and/or money.

300: Rise of an Empire

More like “Rise of a Turdloaf”. It takes everything that was cool about the first 300 movie (slow motion fight scenes, blood/gore, bewbs) and just…makes it lame. The naval battles were kind of neat, though.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Noooooope. The footwork for a Sinister Six movie is laid out here - which would make any Spidey-nerd squee with excitement - but Electro is morphed into a dubstep demon, Rhino is Paul Giamatti (‘nuff said), and Green Goblin looks like Ron Weasley had sex with a gremlin. Pass.

Godzilla

Bryan Cranston cries in pretty much every scene he is in. Kick-Ass plays his son, and he primarily serves as the main plot facilitator for the entire film. Everywhere he is ends up getting attacked by giant monsters, and we’re informed he’s the only highly experienced, military-trained bomb technician in the immediate area. MAN, I HOPE THEY DON’T HAVE TO DISARM A BOMB WHILE HE IS INDISPOSED IN A CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE BOMB. *sigh*

————————

John Calvin would have been proud as #ibelievewewillwin predestined their own first place finish tonight, and a Round 8 joker by Communist Shrimp/Prawn planted them in second place at the end of everything. Well done.
