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-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

Hello, All!

Height: a mean 6ft

Good morning, Quiz-niks! I’m about to lay a heavy beatdown on you, so be real hep quiz-cats and jive to this jam!

As any fan of the Brewmaster Bar and Grill quiz blog will know, a fan favorite amongst our quizzers is always the team known as Oh, The Huge Manatee! Now, they aren’t the best of the best, but they are OUR best, a team who’s enthusiasm and never-say-we-don’t-know-what-the-answer-is attitude is infectious around the quiz arena. Oh, The Huge Manatee has had their characteristic namesake for months now, and tonight they decided that they were going to change their name.

From now on, the players of Oh, The Huge Manatee! decided, they would be known as Alien Toe Porn. The crowd did not take this well.

First, let’s dissect this decision a little bit. Oh, The Huge Manatee is/was a name that evoked a very entertaining image. When I said their name aloud, I could see in my mind’s eye (where I do all my best seeing) the evening of the wreck of the Hindenburg: the gentle drifting of the massive zeppelin as it tries to land suddenly being interrupted by the arrival of a giant, flying manatee slowly swimming into view. I’m there, broadcasting the chaos as the manatee and the zeppelin collide. “Oh, such loss of life, so much fire! Oh, the Huge Manatee! Why?!?!

And the Manatee would fly away, its giant, mushy face revealing not a trace of sadness or joy.

Alien Toe Porn, on the other hand, is a gross name. There’s not a single image I want think about related to that name. At best, it sounds like the name of a Nu Metal band.

Obviously, I’m not the only person who has a deep connection to this team’s name—soon after their name change was announced, a petition was drawn up by some of the other teams to make Alien Toe Porn change their name back.

Folks, this petition could be the most important cause in the history of our Brewmasters quiz. Our quizzers care more about the fate of Oh, the Huge Manatee! than they ever have about the plight of the real manatees that are still getting mangled by Floridians’ boats everyday, and bless them for it! We can’t make the manatee evolve so that it swims faster than its current top speed of “aimless floating,” and we can’t make people in Florida not rocket around in speed boats, because we can’t change nature! But can we affect change in the small world of pub quizzing?

Yes! We! Can!!!

Tonight’s Quiz

You’d think as much as I talked about Oh, The Huge Manatee!/Alien Toe Porn, they’d broke some sort of record for high score at tonight’s quiz, but sadly they came in 6th tonight. There were eleven other teams that played tonight, so lets hear how they played!

Tonight a super high score and joker multiplier in the second round propelled I Put My Hand Upon Your Hip (When I Dip, You Dip, We Dip) into a first place lead that would never fade. They were closely trailed by Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber All The Goals!, who are still celebrating Germany’s recent soccer triumph.

Notes From The Quiz

Look, we all love when we manage to pull a fact from the far recesses of our mind, and our reaction when we find out we’re rightly to applaud. When the question is about Francis Galton and his eugenics theories being used by the Nazis, though…maybe don’t applaud so hard.

Heisman Trophy < Iceman Trophy

In our visual round on ugly characters from TV and movies, one team thought the ugly character in the image from Friends with Ross meeting the “Ugly Naked Guy” was Ross. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY, QUIZ-S-A! WOOOO! WOOO! WOOOOO!!!

Whew. Alright. That was probably a very obnoxious way to start this blog, but tough cookies, readers, because today is the 4th of July. This holiday, more than any other, is a day to revel in a brand of patriotic excess that this country perfected some time in the 80’s (thanks, Reagan!). Today is a day to wear some version of our nation’s flag as an article of clothing, start loudly chanting for no particular reason, and to eat, drink, and be goddamn free. Also, try not to think about freedom too much, because thinking too much about freedom just another form of anti-freedom, guys! Just turn that brain off and try not to think about recent political decisions that put moral authority in the hands of rich corporations, your crushing debts, or how gerrymandering has all but made democracy a game of Connect Four!

We’re not doing that today! Today, we are going to eat some goddamn hotdogs, talk about pub quizzing, and listen to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band!

I love me some Mr. Springsteen and his band, who are all apparently neighbors. At last night’s quiz we treated ourselves to a non-stop block of Bruce and listened to Born in the U.S.A and Born To Run in their entireties. That man makes some good music to quiz by, folks. More than just good music to quiz by. it’s good music to party by, good music to hang out with friends by, and good music to appreciate the things (good and bad) that define this nation by. So, in honor of our freedom and the boss, I choose (because I can!) to end this blog post introduction with a short play I’ve been working on, entitled “Bruce Springsteen: Your Actual Boss.”

Act 3, Scene 1: Early afternoon at Springsteen Insurance Co. Some of the staff has gathered in the boardroom for a meeting. They are sitting around a large table, awkwardly shuffling papers and sipping coffee. The walls of this boardroom are adorned with old license plates, road signs, and pictures from SIC’s CEO, Bruce Springsteen’s various vacations.

George (who has been impatiently tapping his pen against the table, before slamming it down): Oh, come on! Where the hell is Mr. Springsteen? We’ve been sitting in here for thirty minutes!!

Trevor: I don’t know…I saw him get in his car and peel out of the parking lot at noon, but I thought he was just going to get lunch…

George: Goddammit! He could be gone for hours then! I swear, he is just out of control. What is he, sixteen? Let’s just do the meeting without him. What does he contribute, anyway? He just interrupts us every ten minutes to tell us some stupid story from when he was in high school.

Trevor: I think he just found those early years very formative, you know? They were his glory…

George (interrupting): Don’t say it! I’m tired of hearing about those…particular days. It just drives me crazy how he thinks he can just have a good time and do whatever he wants all the time. Someone has to be the straight man to his whole stupid “cool guy” routine, you know? Like last month when he described our car insurance package as perfect for “Suicide machines sprung from cages out on highway 9.” How does he expect me to sell that to families trying to get car insurance for their teenagers?

Trevor: I heard last week he told Tricia that, “You ain’t a beauty, but hey, you’re alright.”

Tricia: And then he tried to give me a stuffed animal he said he won me at the boardwalk and whispered into my ear, “Baby, I’m on fire.”

George: Christ! The man’s a walking lawsuit! I’m tired of his bullshit, and I’m tired of blue jeans being mandatory! Clarence, you’ve known him the longest of any of us, can you talk to him about how fed up we are?

(Clarence stands up from his seat, puts on a pair of sunglasses, and launches into a ten minute saxophone solo)

George: Thanks, Clarence.

Last Night’s Quiz

I know I say this all the time, but this time I really mean it when I say that last night’s quiz at Brewmasters Bar and Grill was thrilling. We had all the hallmarks of an exciting quiz: an early rivalry, major upsets, and a showdown to resolve a tied score!

Early in our quiz, veteran teams Optimus Crime: Robots Doing Time and So, Who is This Tim Howard Fellow I Keep Hearing So Much About? Seemed like they were locking down leads that would keep them fighting for first and second place our whole quiz, but their use of the joker multiplier in the second round would prove to be their downfalls. Apparently not trusting their music knowledge, our other teams saved their joker for the eighth round—always a risky move for the random round—but it seemed to work well in the favor! [American Flag] (their team name was a doodle of the flag), Comrade Question, and Karmann With a K all made major leaps up our scoreboard in the final round.

[American Flag] won the night, and a sudden death question duel between Comrade Question and Optimus Crime resulted in an Archer reference beating a Michael Bay reference. Just like God intended.

Notes from the Quiz

So, Who is This Tim Howard Fellow I Keep Hearing So Much About? must be tired of the World Cup. By the end of the quiz, their name had morphed to Fuck You, Tim Howard.

Abstinence and Anal, Neither Produce a Baby: thanks for the biology lesson!

Jeez, I know we are all pessimistic about the new Star Wars movies, but to assume episode 8 will be directed by Michael Bay? Ouch.
