I'm not going to lie: I hate the Olympics and I hate outer space, two facts about me I know I've shared more than once. But between kicking ass in the medal count and putting Curiosity on Mars, I am fucking proud to be an American. Every other country on this planet can suck our collective red, white and blue asses. Am I right, Trailhead? I know I am. You all whooped it up enough last night to confirm that.
Speaking of things kicking asses, Fisted Sister hit the seven wins in a row mark. Granted, I'm way too lazy to look up if that's an actual record, but I think it was Mark Twain who said, "A Quizmaster is never wrong." So, yeah: that's a record.
But alas, things can't always stay Lemon Drop bright, my dear quizzers. No, usually they turn Jager dark. And sticky. And thick. I have it on good authority that a coup might be a brewin' in the House of Fisted Sister. A revolt that will tear the walls of the Trailhead and a reorganization that will test the very laws of time, space, and friendship. To quote President Lincoln: "If by the mere force of numbers a majority should deprive a minority of any clearly written constitutional right, it might, in a moral point of view, justify revolution". And by god, I'm pretty sure winning the quiz and buying team shots and one for your QM are contitutional rights.
Just what will happen? Show up next week and see, quizzlings. Show up and see.
On a final note, just because you didn't get raped in South Africa during the month you were there does not mean that they do not have over 1300 reported rapes a day. It just means that either you didn't get raped, you didn't report it, or you don't work in South African law enforcement. I know my facts. Just ask Mark Twain.
Stay classy, Trailheaders. Wherever you are.
Did you know that I write more than this blog? Join the cool kids and "like" my FB page, Writing As I Write. Maybe when I get rich and famous, I'll dedicate a book to you. Probably not, but you can hope!
