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, Quiz campers! It’s a bright, sunny day here at Camp Quiz-alata! First up for you this morning, we have some story time with Counselor Hobert, here to tell us about a quiz at Brewmasters Bar and Grill! His story will include a dumb, seemingly pointless intro where a random scenario unfolds, setting up some observational humor and a brief description of the outcomes and inside jokes from the quiz. Tonight, dinner will be stew.

Last night we featured rounds on two of my favorite sci-fi topics: time travel and cloning. These are topics that I greatly enjoy thinking about. I’ve wasted a lot of time for a lot of employers over the years daydreaming about what I’d do with access to a time machine and and clone machine. After all that thinking, I think I’ve figured out the best personal use for these machines.

Ok, so here is the impossible (or is it?!?) sci-fi scenario I imagined: first, I’d use the clone machine to make a whole bunch of little baby clones of myself. Then, I go back in time to time periods I find interesting, and leave the baby versions of myself there, so that I could come back periodically to see how I would have been if I grew up in different circumstances.

This has to be the best way to really find out who you are as a person, right? Imagine, being able to go back in time and see what you would have been like during the Civil War, during the Middle Ages, or as one of the Von Trapp family!

The moment in time I’d most like to take a clone of myself to? That would be the 1960’s. I’d like to think of myself as a pretty groovy dude, and I like to image that I would have fallen in with the counter culture crowd and done all sorts of things like happenings and rock music and protesting the man. But I’m also pretty susceptible to pressure. I’d prefer not to do anything to rock the boat too much, so I’m a little worried I might have felt too uncomfortable to have fought back again the pressure to be a square. If I sent a baby me back to the 60’s, would I have been a hippie, or the guy clubbing him with a baton?

On a lighter note, I’d also like to take a version of myself back to the mean streets of 1940's New Jersey, where only the song in my heart could keep me from turning to a life of crime. I have a good feeling that I would have grown up to be one of the Four Seasons.

Tonight’s Quiz

We had a really big night at Brewmasters Bar and Grill, with eleven teams taking on our quiz. An early tie for first place must have inspired something in our other teams, because teams from the middle of the pack started to leap forward. Ray Rice's Elevator Action and Oh, The Huge Manatee! started off with strong leads over their competitors, but I AM GROOT ended up over taking the Manatees for second place, leaving Ray Rice the victory!

Notes on the Quiz

Strange first for the quiz tonight; we had our first team with a child make it all the way to end of the quiz. Their team name was The Deadly Venomous Fluffy Caterpillars That Eventually Became Pretty Butterflies, and I’d like to wager that the kid came up with the name.

Good morrow, gentle quiz villagers! I am but a humble quiz troubadour, here to sing you an olde rhyme of a quiz of olde, a tale of a rainy evening when the sky was black, the rain was falling, and the thunder rolled! Put a silver king’s head in me pouch, and I’ll start to sing and dance!

Last night at Brewmasters Bar and Grill, we paid tribute to one of the weirdest news stories in recent memory: former President George H. Bush has taken up painting. Specifically, our visual round featured a small image of the classic “shower self portrait” painting, where he’s naked in the shower, leaning against the wall a presumably crying, Big Chill style.

Bush turning into a painter seems like a strange move for an ex-president, but actually, Bush’s artistic endeavors are part of the American Presidential tradition of artistic expression.

When our founding father and constitutional framers created the office of the President, they decided that it was important for national cultural advancement for our leader to learn and perform one artistic activity before they leave office. This practice started with Thomas Jefferson, who despite being an accomplished scholar and musician,  decided to try his hand at writing a book of poems. His travels in Europe introduced him a popular Japanese form of poetry. From his series of haikus, “Notes on the Founding of America:”

                Man is created
                Equal in the eyes of God
                My slaves are super sexy

Ever since then, Presidents have selected an art form that most appeals to their temperament: Theodore Roosevelt carved logs into statues of bears, James Buchanan knitted hats, and Rutherford B. Hayes pioneered the “prank” phone call. A small number of US Presidents have taken up what might be the most dangerous Presidential activity, Extreme Magic. The most famous Presidential magician was James Garfield. On July 2, 1881, Garfield attempted his famous “bullet catch” trick, but someone replaced his prop gun with a real gun! Who could have done such a thing? Perhaps rival magician, Vice President Chester A. Arthur?

Only history knows for sure, we can only speculate about this mystery from the annals of Presidential Artistry.

Last Night’s Quiz

We had a real rowdy crowd last night at Brewmasters (listen, adult kickball league, if you’re not going to be able to use your inside voices next time, we’re going to have to ask you to go play outside) but twelve teams faced our challenging quiz. Quiz veterans I Just Peed My Pants Real Bad got an early lead with a joker in the second round which would keep them in first place till the end of the night. The group of political campaign interns from last week (Dem Internz) were back, with new constituents to bolster their ranks and bring Barack Paper Scissors into second place!

Those kids are going to rule the world some day, and I hope they remember their ol’ quizmaster friend, Hobert.

Notes From the Quiz

Almost every team recognized the theme song to The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. You guys stay up way too late, I’m worried about you.

One team thought the “down to earth” band that performed “Barracuda” was Metallica. If Metallica has shown us anything over the past couple of decades, it’s that they are many things, but down to earth is not one of them.

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

Good morning, Quiz-heads! Have you been following the Grateful Quiz across the country, like I have? Cool, cool. If I don’t seem to remember you at my quiz, it’s only because, you know what they say: if you remember the quiz, you weren’t there! Well, either way, let me refresh your memory with some solid jams from last night’s Brewmasters Bar and Grill Quiz!

In last night’s quiz, I asked our quizzers to identify and mashup video game characters and real world folks. The guy that runs from ghosts and plays Wolverine? Hugh Pac-man…yeah, it was a round full of groans.

Video games are a hot commodity these days, readers. The sale and mainstream acceptance of video games is to a point where their sales rival that of movies and music, and companies are making billions. But where are games going from here? Video games have evolved from arcades to home consoles, from individual pixels bouncing back and forth to incredibly realistic boobs bouncing on every female character.

Obviously, there is still some room for games to mature, and while I’m no expert in the field—actually, let’s say I am an expert, it’s not like you guys know any different—I think I know the next step in game evolution: mundane games.

Eventually everyone is going to be sick of playing as super soldiers and magic plumbers, and with the invention of that Occulus visual reality thing there’s soon going to be a huge market for realistic, pedestrian gaming experiences.

The way I see it, these games won’t offer the sort of grim wish fulfillment seen in games like Grand Theft Auto, they’ll be games you play where you’re just a normal person, living your life. You won’t be shooting cops or fighting monsters, you’ll just be shopping for milk maybe, or watching some ducks in a park. And there will seemingly be no point to the game. When you get tired of playing it, you’ll just take off the headset and think, “That was nice. I probably should buy milk too,” and then you’ll feel a deep emptiness.

Maybe there will be an option to play a video game inside my game! Maybe after a couple of hours of playing Mario Kart, or watching Game of Thrones, you’ll forget that you’re in a game at all! Maybe you’re in the game RIGHT NOW, and your character is reading a blog about a pub quiz (one of the many fun activities to do in the game) and this blog is really just an in-game advertisement for the game!

Good luck with your day, I’m sure it’s going to be pretty difficult to get through this Friday at work with your mind all blown like I’m sure it is!

Last Night’s Quiz

Eleven teams joined us last night for a quiz that offered all the twists and turns of a blockbuster action film. If they ever decided to adapt a pub quiz into an action film, I’d recommend last night’s quiz at Brewmasters, and suggest that they get Channing Tatum to play me. I think the similarities between us are uncanny.

For the first two thirds of our quiz, a rivalry developed between veteran quizzers Smellen Hunt and I Wish My Girlfriend Went Down as Easy as a Malaysian Airlines Flight. These two teams stayed neck and neck till the final two rounds of the quiz with Smellen Hunt trailing by only one point. But a surprise awaited us at the end of this quiz—at the end of round eight, Smellen Hunt was still behind by a point, and Ru Paul Walker: Too Fast, Too Fabulous had used their joker to tie with our top team/top cringe-inducing team name!

Karma is apparently a thing, because I Wish My Girlfriend… flew too close to the sun on their wings of wax, and by that I mean they were bested in a tie breaking question-off by Ru Paul Walker: Too Fast, Too Fabulous!

Notes From the Quiz

Democracy won! Oh, The Huge Manatee! is back!

Ru Paul Walker changed its name in the later rounds to spawn some sequels. My favorite? Ru Paul Walker: Too Fast, Too Fabulous: Tokyo Drag.

Favorite video game mashup that wasn’t? Curious Travelers Handy’s suggestion of a barrel throwing despot who rules North Korea: Donkey Kong-un
