An important lesson for us all- citrus and deities don’t mix very well. Another important lesson- not enough of you have seen The Gods Must Be Crazy. It’s an 1980s classic. You need to get on that shit. The most awesomest thing about the quiz, though, was clearly pairing the Back to School Night round with the Nerd Video Game Fighting round. To those of you who got the Dragonball Z question right, hang your head in shame. Shame I dare say, and then come over so I can kick your ass in some Mario Kart.
And now, a love note to my lovely scoring assistant. Emily, you are the bees knees. The Vanna to my Pat. The models to my Howie. The one black guy from the Daily Show to my Stewart. You rock so hard, like Bon Jovi. Thanks for the memories, and more importantly for the shot. I owe ya one next week.
Truest Team Name- I Have a Tiny Penis. How did you know? WHO TOLD YOU?
Least Original Team Name of the Night- My Couch Pulls Out, But I Don’t. While that is true (and I know first hand), it’s also one of the most overused quiz names in the Geek-a-verse. Try Team Ramrod next time, because we’ve NEVER seen that team name before.
The quiz ended with some epic tie-breaker action. While I’m sure we are all shocked that THAT many people care about the MVP in the American League, I’ve Got Nada grossly underestimated its popularity and came in third. Tony Scott Diving Team took home a nice silver, and top honors went to Cheeky Bastards. And while I’m always glad to see topical team names, I saw a whole lot of Todd Akin. I’d abort any attempt at humor on that, but I’m not entirely sure that’s legal anymore.
Special shout outs to that one drunk dude who got a promotion, some yuppie who celebrated his 25th birthday, and Garrett who rocked out his audition slot.
Back to School? Don’t Be a Fool- Study Up and Read These Announcements.
