Between being ill this weekend, shooting video at a summer camp for youth who have lost a loved one, and hosting quiz last night, it’s been one hell of a week. Wait, the week is only half over? Damn. Well then, it must be time to blog!
What better way to get this thing kicking than by the question I asked my quizzers at the end of the night: if you were a porn star, what would your porn name be?
Team Diving: Not Just For Muffs:
-Phil N. Erhole
Team Ask Us Anything!:
-Dirty Dozen Inches
Team Michael Phelps Has More Medals Than Your Country:
-Big Jack Hornier
Team You Can Change Your Name to Snoop Lion, Snoop Gopher, Even Snoop Panda, but Your Music Still Sucks:
-Officer And A Genital Man
To the two teams who weren’t feeling kinky or creative (kinkative or creanky?), it was your loss, because that turned into the final bonus question of the night. Turns out no one knows what the ‘D’ in ‘EPMD’ stands for (dollars, y’all).
Notes from the night:
-No one knows what ‘Glamdring’ means in Elvish. That’s okay. The loneliest LOTR nerd in the house will stay on the mic, despite this gap in knowledge.
-I never truly realized how giggle-inducing the term “ball-peen hammer” is.
-Bagpipe covers!? It’s like riding through the Scottish Hebrides on horseback while jamming out to…Snow Patrol and Coldplay on bagpipes? Goodness.
-No one scored lower than 6 points on our “Longer or Shorter than Ron Jeremy’s Junk?” round. Way to be, quizzers!
-In “Hail To The Chief Badass,” I told you that you would earn my respect if you knew the president who kept a pet alligator, swam naked in the Potomac, and moonlighted as a Harvard professor. Matt from Diving: Not Just For Muffs said he would earn that respect and that I should give it to him right there and then. I told him to be patient until I scored the round. Unsurprisingly, he let me down. It’s as if no one has ever heard of John Quincy Adams. Perhaps next time, we can ask questions about James K. Polk, Napoleon of the Stump.
-Another term for an F battery is a “Long D.” And now you know. Share your knowledge with the world!
Thanks again for coming out last night and making last night’s quiz a memorable one. Be sure to show up early next time for seating, $3 pizza deals, and more time to work on/study round 5. I look forward to quizzing around with y’all next week.
