Hobert (Ho-Ho the Wonderdog!)

Hello, All!

My name is Hobert, and I'm your Quizmaster for Geeks Who Drink at Brewmasters Bar & Grill.

Here are some fun stats about me, ripped straight from my rookie trading card:

Name: Hobert Thompson

Height: a mean 6ft

Weight: a mean 200lbs

Shoe size: an average 10 1/2

Skills: Reading questions out loud, improv comedy-ing, film making, outdoorsmanship, horse wrangling, and listing.

Fun Fact: had his life long fear of snakes proved right after a snake bit his face.

Greetings, quiz-fans! I hope you are having a great day so far, and that you’ve got some great plans lined up for the weekend. With any luck, your weekend plans won’t fall apart when you arrive at the beach only to discover that your boss is dead, and your only option, for some reason, is to cart his corpse around, pretending it’s alive. But maybe that’s the plot of Weekend at Bernie’s, so I guess that’s not likely to happen to you, but I want you to know that I sincerely hope it doesn’t happen to you.

What will I be doing this weekend? Well, thanks for asking! I’m actually moving this weekend; tossing all of my worldly possessions into boxes and so on and so forth. I don’t need to tell you guys what moving is. We’ve all been there at some point in time, and we all know it’s not exactly pleasant. What was much more pleasant was last night’s quiz at Brewmasters Bar and Grill, my final quiz before I leave Raleigh, NC.

I started as quizmaster at Brewmasters almost a year ago, back in the go-go era that was October, 2013. Over the course of the last almost-year, I’ve had a lot of fun getting to know the quizzers at Brewmasters. What a great group of people to hang with every week! Sure, they might not be the best at knowing answers, and they might not be the most enjoyable people to talk to, but dammit, they’ve got heart! And heart, as we’ve been conditioned to believe by pop culture, wins championships! Well, maybe in this case there’s no championship to win, so instead, here are some superlatives I’d like to award the patrons of Brewmasters:

Most Consistent: This award goes to the table of six gentlemen who came in almost every single quiz at Brewmasters and sat at a table in the back and never played. Sometimes they would even complain about not being able to talk over the quiz, but did they ever consider just going to another bar? Nope! Maybe they were a memory loss support group, forever meeting at Brewmasters only to discover each week their dinner would be disrupted by a quiz, and then forgetting before the next Thursday.

Most Enthusiastic Team: This might actually be a tie between the players from Smellen Hunt and Oh, The Huge Manatee!. If self-congratulation was worth bonus points, these two veteran teams would always win! Though Smellen Hunt never came to our quiz enough to earn the sort of fandom The Manatees have generated, both teams earned a special place in my hall of fame just because they always respond when I ask “are you guys ready for round ____?” No one else ever responds! It’s not a rhetorical question, people! I really wanted to know if you were ready to move on!

Most Likely to Succeed: They haven’t been in for awhile, but for a brief time during the summer we had a team made up of interns from a local political campaign. They were all very young, smiled all the time, and they all seemed like they could be my boss.

The “Where are they now, I hope they’re OK” award: This goes to the hatchet-wielding homeless guy that took up residence in the Brewmasters bathroom one January night and told someone he was going to kill us all. The cops took him away, and I hope wherever that guy is, he’s feeling less crazy, and if he ever wants to quiz again, Quizmaster Sequoyah will be taking over at Brewmasters! (Sorry if I just encouraged a guy with a hatchet to come to your quiz, Sequoyah!)

Thanks everyone! It’s been a real birthday party on the moon working as your quizmaster!

Last Night’s Quiz

We had seven teams play with us last night, and I was pleased to see that all seven teams had played our quiz before. Muppet Man Man Muppet started strong and built a lead that couldn’t be beat, so our other teams had to battle it out for the remaining second place prize. Big L had a lead on their competition coming out of round two, but It’s Not Easy Being Green caught up with them after our second scoring break. At the end of the quiz—in a surprise twist—our two tied teams were both passed by a high final round score from Waiting for Lungs!

Way to go, teams!

Greetings, fellow quizzers. I know in the past I’ve referred to myself as a “Quizmaster” in this blog, but recently I’ve had a change of heart. We are not just solely quizzers, Quizmasters, and random bar patrons; we are all quizzers in the great quiz called life. Take my hand, fellow quizzer, and let us read this blog together, united merrily in teams of no more than six.

At last night’s quiz, one of our veteran quizzers decided tonight was the night be bring along her three kids. The team name they played as? Who Brought The Fucking Kids?…Oh Wait. Now, I know our quizzes and my banter can often enter the realm of the bawdy, but I would never use foul or provocative language in the presence of children. I mean, isn’t our job as adults to protect kids from having life’s cruel truths thrust upon them too early? Aren’t our children always only one accidentally-watched R-rated movie away from turning into the sort of people who anonymously bully dead celebrities’ kids on Twitter?

Well, the mother behind WBTFKOW (their preferred acronym) obviously disagrees with me on this front, and invited me to join in on her swear-word based version of the old “it takes a village” adage. Her reason? She knew it would make me uncomfortable, and she found that funny. I’m glad I radiate awkwardness so well that even near strangers can identify ways to pick on me!

So, I embraced it! I mean, if she is cool with it, and the kids are cool with it, why not? They’re just words, man! Sticks and stones and whatever! If I’m called upon by my quizzers to do something, I’ll probably do it. I swore right in those kids’ sweet little faces, and in that moment, I could see the distinctive sparkle of innocence fade from their eyes, and the gradual dawning of one of life’s great truths in their young minds. Life is pain; it’s full of equal parts agony and monotony, and sometimes saying “fuck,” “shit,” or “fuck this shit” can bring you great comfort as you face the void of existence.

Plus, it got a big laugh in the bar, and I’ll always debase myself for the sake of laughs.

Last Night’s Quiz

We had nine teams start our quiz last night, and we had a great mixture of old and new teams. Sure, we might have started out in a mellow mood in Brewmasters Bar and Grill, but by the end of the night our quizzing had reached a fevered, almost “Lord of the Flies”-esque tone. But, that might have just been because of all the kids running around.

I was a little worried that Dopple Ganger Banger’s early use of their joker multiplier would be their downfall, but they proved me wrong by acing tonight’s round eight! Not only did they get all sixteen points in the round; one of their players also got the round eight bonus question! Way to go, guys!

New quizzers Dogfart performed admirably, holding down second place all night, but in our final two rounds they were passed by Who Brought all the Fucking Kids?!…Oh Wait. who were, as you’d imagine, well versed in J.J. Abrams and Muppets. Congratulations to all our quizzers!

Hobert (Ho-Ho the Wonderdog!)

Hello, All!

My name is Hobert, and I'm your Quizmaster for Geeks Who Drink at Brewmasters Bar & Grill.

Here are some fun stats about me, ripped straight from my rookie trading card:

Name: Hobert Thompson

Height: a mean 6ft

Weight: a mean 200lbs

Shoe size: an average 10 1/2

Skills: Reading questions out loud, improv comedy-ing, film making, outdoorsmanship, horse wrangling, and listing.

Fun Fact: had his life long fear of snakes proved right after a snake bit his face.

Good morning, dear readers! I hope this e-correspondence finds you well! We’re about to begin our Labor Day weekend, so let me be the first to say “up with the working man!” I like to imagine at all my readership is made up of hard working, hard partying blue collar “Joes,” so this blog goes out to you, my proletariat friends! I think the topic of this blog will hit close to home for those of us who live the 9-5 life. Eh, who am I kidding? It’s about Hello Kitty.

As you might have heard, Sanrio, a Japanese knickknackery, announced that their character Hello Kitty—who’s existed since the 1970’s—is not, and has never been, a cat. Instead, Hello Kitty is supposed to be a little girl. Sorry, Sanrio, but I don’t buy it. I’m not by any means an expert in Hello Kitty lore, but if Hello Kitty is meant be a little girl, they probably shouldn’t have made her a cat. Because that is a cartoon cat.

Are we supposed to believe that Hello Kitty is just a third grader who dresses like a cat, and has friends who dress like animals? Personally, I’d buy that Hello Kitty is supposed to be a ghost of a cat, or an alien, or a metaphor for the loss of innocence during WWI (she lives in an idyllic version of London where she bakes apple pies all day and writes letters to her beau, Dear Daniel, who is far, far away. And Daniel is a dog….and you can’t spell “doughboy” without D-O-G! Dear Daniel is an American soldier who died in the trenches!).

Anyway, according a PR rep at Sanrio, Hello Kitty is sort of like Mickey Mouse in that “Hello Kitty isn’t a human, she’s not quite a cat either.” Ok, point taken, I guess we don’t expect Mickey to chew on cardboard and drag his balls all over everything, but something about this still doesn’t sit well with me. We just can’t let this stand. We need to draw a line in the sand here, people! Are we really going to allow another culture revision to take place? Hello Kitty suddenly being a little girl instead of a kitty is this generation’s Freedo shoots at Han first.

What’s wrong with a cartoon cat being a cat? If it looks like a cat, and continues to look like a cat for forty years, are our children and creepy adults not allowed to believe it is a cat? Do we really need some multi-billion dollar corporation to tell us what is and isn’t a cat? This isn’t a case of a toddler who just learned to talk pointing at a mailbox and calling it a cat; this is a cartoon character that looks like a kitty, and is named “Hello Kitty!”

Next thing you know, Jim Davis is going to reveal that Garfield is supposed to be Jon’s stoner roommate.

Last Night’s Quiz

I was very pleased to have a quiz last night where all five teams were regular players. It’s not that I don’t like seeing new faces at the quiz, but sometimes, you just want the warm, soft feel of veteran teams. I’m not sure why I feel the same way I do about sweaters as I do about quiz teams, but whatever.

It seemed like the quiz was a lock for team My Iconic 13 Inch Bit is Also “Coming Soon” (a team that most likely came up with their team name during our round that mentioned the new 13” iPad) but the quiz can be a cruel mistress, just like the sea! (man, I’m just full of metaphors tonight!) 13 Inch was closely trailed by I've Got 3 Passports, a Couple of Visas, Don't Even Know My Real Name (Talking Heads references are always appreciated) till the tail end of our quiz, when 13 Inch faltered, making room for 3 Passports to rise to the top and crowd favorites Oh, The Huge Manatee! to jump into second place! Way to use that joker multiplier!

Notes From the Quiz

One of our teams tonight thought that the purpose of gargoyles was to guard buildings. Repeat: a group of adults thinks gargoyles are real…
