So I have a theory. When people say "words just can't describe" whatever it is they've been asked to describe, they're just plain lazy. Look at me right here in this moment, if you'd like an example. Right now, I'm sitting at a meeting with a realtor who wants to sell my house and I am WRITING THIS BLOG so that you kids have a record of the shenanigans and goings-on from the big quiz on Thursday. I THOUGHT to myself, I thought "hey, you COULD just type the phrase 'words just can't describe the good time we had last night' and end the blog and be all mysterious and shit" but then I remembered how much I like having a job and how being a Quizmaster is KIND OF integral to my self esteem and...yeah, I'm ignoring my realtor to type these paragraphs FOR YE. So don't ever ask "what have you done for me lately" because my answer will be "OH, SO MUCH THAT YOU AREN'T EVEN AWARE OF" and then I'll probably stomp off and you'll have to come knock on my door as I'm pouting and say "hey...uh...'sup?"
Wait, where were we?
OH YES, the QUIZ! So much fun was had during the first quiz of the third year at Old Chicago on Tejon. Twenty Two big teams packed the joint and showed off their big brains as we covered smart-guy topics like Chess and Thomas Edison vs. Nikola Tesla (sometimes smart guys end up batshit insane and never have sex. WHO KNEW!?), a quiz ABOUT a test (how fucking meta is THAT!?) a kick ass (but super challenging) before and after round about Amurikan history stuff...We had a mash-em-up audio round, we had a fun video round...I tell ya, it was really somthin'. And no, I don't even remotely mean that as sarcastically as it sounds in your head. So you just stop assuming there, you...Negative Nancy you.
And you know what? So what if I don't speak clearly. SO WHAT if I tell two teams who have both come up with an unoriginal team name coughCUNNINGLINGUISTScough to have a draw-off and I say "hell, draw me Allah" and I get a picture of an olive. SO WHAT!? eesh...
Anyhoo, we had quite the battle for the top three slots on Thursday and a powerhouse team with a name that hasn't seen the light of day for a while (Hobo Spunk Ice Cream Cone) made quite the bold showing, grabbing that top spot and hanging on to it for dear life like one of those Cuban refugees hanging on to a piece of scrap wood in a hurricane, trying to get to A NEW LIFE full of freedom and baseball...Ok, so it wasn't nearly THAT dramatic, but you get the idea. The 2nd and 3rd place finishers weren't nearly as clear cut...PERHAPS that's WHY we had the good fortune to witness MAYBE THE BEST GODDAMN DANCEOFF EVER! Just click and see for yourself...
So when all of that dust settled, What The Hell is an Aluminum Falcon fell to 3rd, Firebreathing Seahorse claimed 2nd based solely on the mad dance skills of that guy in that video there and Hobo Spunk Ice Cream Cone were the champeens for the evening. Big thanks to everyone for coming out to show off their big brain, LETS MAKE THE THIRD YEAR SO GOOD, THE SECOND YEAR WILL PISS IT'S PROVERBIAL PANTS IN FEAR! We can only accomplish this WITH YOU...So we'll see YOU. LIke next Thursday. K? k.
