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…

Yo, sup? Me? I’m just chillin,’ keep it pretty real and pretty quizzy. Good, I think that’s a nice, casual intro for this blog, hopefully that easy-going salutation will ease you into this thrilling account of last night’s quiz at Brewmasters Bar and Grill.

Tonight, we featured a round on Macho Man Randy Savage and terrible Wikipedia edits. I doubt that you guys know this about me (you don’t know me!), but I’m actually the nation’s leading researcher in the history and lore of the “Macho Man.” Over the last couple of years, I’ve been locked in an intense debate with the people at Wikipedia about the veracity of my research, and the frequent edits I’ve made to Mr. Savage’s and those related to Mr. Savage’s pages.

Among my frequently flagged and 100% true facts:

Macho Man Randy Savage starred in a live action film about an unstoppably strong escaped mutant, based on the “Kool-Aid Man.”

After his death in 2011, Congress attempted to pass an amendment that would require that filibusters can only be halted by a dissenting congressman performing Macho Man’s signature finishing move, the “Diving Elbow Drop,” on the speaker.

Randy Savage was born Spinebreaker Savage, but changed his name to “Randy” because he worried his name sounded too Italian.

Macho Man’s entrance music for wrestling events was “Pomp and Circumstance.” He was later blatantly ripped of by the education community, who permit their graduating classes to plagiarize his entrance during their graduation ceremonies. (What ever happened to academic integrity?)

Not only was Macho Man the spokesman for Slim Jims meat snacks, he also sold his own beef jerky to other wrestlers backstage to pay for his massive sequin budget.

He was a minor league baseball player, playing for the Tampa Tarpons.

See, I bet if you were looking these up, you’ll find out that last fact is on Wikipedia! Finally, they are taking my research seriously! OOHHHHHH YEEEEEEEEAH!

Last Night’s Quiz

Big night at Brewmasters Bar and Grill! We had twelve teams come out for the quiz, and boy were they a lively crew. I was also joined last night by Sequoyah, a quizmaster-in-training and all-around cool dude. Something was definitely in the air last night—I think the quizzers were trying to impress Sequoyah—and we ended our quiz with some major upsets!

Last night was a big night for perennial quiz favorites Oh, The Huge Manatee! and quiz veterans on Thrice Fuck-it Challenge and What’s Wrong With Being Sexy?. They were in tight competition for top three places for the first half of our quiz. Things changed quickly though in our final two rounds, where Oh, The Huge Manatee! and Thrice Fuck-it Challenge were baffled by our wikipedia and Star Wars cast rounds, and a team made of two groups of strangers united under a great team name, The Titanic: All Time ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Champions, made an unprecedented leap from 7th place to 1st place with a massive 30 points in our final round!

They’re kings of the world!

Notes From the Quiz

One team tonight thought 12 Years a Slave was called 7 Years a Slave. They were 58.3% right!

Oh, The Huge Manatee! spawned what seemed to be a parody team this evening: Oh, The Littlest Manatee. We’ve finally achieved maximum in-jokey-ness at our quiz!

What’s Wrong With Being Sexy? offered us a glimpse inside the tragic life of a sexy person by adding sad sexy facts to their team name. What IS wrong with being sexy? Well, for starters, it upsets children, makes your friends feel bad about themselves, and people confuse you with Paul Rudd. As a sexy-American, I know these experiences all too well.

Finally, a big shout out to Sequoyah! Let us all wish him well for the rest of his Quizmaster training!

Good Morning! I hope you feel rested up and ready for your day! You know what would be a good way to get started? With a healthy dose of Quiz blog! Yeah, that’s right, I really ambushed you with that casual greeting, and by now your eyes are hooked into reading this blog! Don’t try to fight it, you’ve read this far by now, so you probably want to just keep on reading to see what happened last night at the Brewmasters Bar and Grill quiz!

Sorry about that. You just have to really hook a reader in, ya know? Anyway, I hope you are having a great week, though I have to admit this whole summer so far has been a real bummer. There are a lot of terrible things going on in the world lately, and it’s hard to even focus on all the tragedies we’ve faced recently to give them the attention and grief they deserve. With global conflict, disease outbreaks, race riots and celebrity deaths (yeah, I know that the last one isn’t as big a deal as the others, but big tragedies don’t set a new bar for sadness. Sad things are still sad), it’s easy to feel like we are overlooking things because we are so shocked by the next horrible thing.

But stay positive! It might be hard to feel it sometimes, but there is good in the world. The things that we have to feel good about might not be as big as the scale of global misery, but they still count. Just look at Brewmasters tonight. As long as a group of people can get together and eat, drink and be merry, there is still some small positive thing to feel good about. Right? I mean, we’re not going to solve any world crises with pub quizzes, obviously, but people coming together is always a good thing. Together, we can answer some questions and through that, hopefully answer the greatest question of all: What is love?

Long live the quiz!

Last Night’s Quiz

We have seven teams playing for glory and gift certificates at Brewmasters last night. Newcomers At Least Carradine Died Holding His Peter Pan set themselves up for an unstoppable lead with high scores on our Jimmy Fallon-inspired music round and Wall Street slang rounds. This left veteran quiz-crews Comrade Question and Live Every Week Like It’s Shart Week to fight over second place. In our final round, Shart Week beat Comrade Question by one point!

Congratulations to our teams with icky names for winning the night!

Notes from the Quiz

Of course a family with children had to walk into the bar in the midst of our Wall Street slang round. Well, maybe it’s important for kids to learn about how you can get ahead by buying drugs for the office (“building a book”) and what their “fuck you money” amount is (the amount you’d need to quit your job and never work again). You’re welcome, future wolves of Wall Street!

At first I was a little wary of teams making jokes too soon, but you know, if there is one celebrity that would have appreciated at least a couple of tasteless jokes on his behalf, it would have have Robin Williams. We’ll miss you, Robin Williams.
