Good day to you, quizzers! I hope this blog post finds you well. I had a good time at last night’s quiz, so thank you all for coming out. We had an appropriately timed visual round about Star Wars last night. Appropriately timed because:
Yes, we’ll finally get the old, cranky, possibly senile Han Solo that we have all been clamoring for. Why not just cast Chevy Chase?
“Chewie, punch it to hyper-drive! And get my prostate pills. It’s the size of a grapefruit down there. Do we have grapefruits in this galaxy? I forget. Let’s get some whores.”
The point of the visual round was to pick out the minor Star Wars character that is destined to get their own spin-off movie, because it worked so well for the Ewoks. My money is on Max Rebo. Thanks largely to Rebo; the music in Jabba’s palace in Return of the Jedi was amazing before Lucas rewrote history with the Special Edition Trilogy. Anyway, that’s my vote: Max Rebo. Get Scorsese to direct it and it could be the greatest concert movie of all time, just like The Last Waltz. Hell, Bob Dylan can make a cameo since nowadays he looks like something out of Mos Eisley.
Mesmerized by the Muffintop owned this quiz from the first question on. They wound up with 80 points and $30. Second place went to our young upstarts Boom. Simple. Done! Using their joker at the moment they needed it the most enabled them to go home with $20 in winnings. Well played, everyone.
So ends another week in Geeks Who Drink history. Stop by next week, unless space is actually successful at killing us all before then. Horrifying.
