The first teacher in space was Christa McAuliff. What color were her eyes? Blue. After her ride on the space shuttle Challenger, one blue this way, one blue that way. Man, that one has been around since the 80’s…and though it’s tasteless, it never gets old. No wonder it went over well with the TRUELOVE crowd this Sunday evening. They are a sick and twisted bunch. And that never gets old.
For the record, they started it. It was the quizzers who thought it would be funny to put both Challenger and Columbia as two of the space shuttles that were put up for sale in 2008. It does make sense. You can get more for the parts than the whole. A few years ago an unused space shuttle named Conway was jacked and wound up in a chop-shop in El Segundo. The parts sold for over $45 million on the black market. Rumor has it the French government bought most of the parts. They’ve yet to put it together because space travel is too bourgeois. Plus, there would be a whole new galaxy of beings to surrender too and they have their hands full making white flags for the next German invasion.
Damn, you people get me off track so easily. Thanks to one hell of good party at a quiz regulars house on Saturday night, many of the Sunday night quizzers where attempting to answer meaningless questions with one bitch of a hangover. The Quiz Master was asking them with the same symptoms. The good news is the scored stayed pretty close throughout the quiz. The bad news is the scores were deader than Columbia on re-entry (too soon?). Would you rather I said you were all vying to be the smartest kids in the Geeks Who Drink quiz resource class?
Round 6 proved to be the toughest round of the night. The top score was a 3! The positive here is we can all be glad we don’t know anything about conservatives. We don’t know anything about wedding songs either…which is also good. Round three also stunk. Perhaps some Flat-D flatulence deodorizer pads would be helpful? So…did we really learn anything at all? Why yes….
There is no shame in not knowing the song “We Built This City” by Starship. Consider yourself very lucky
Technically, meerkats could tunnel under city walls…but that’s not the cat we’re looking for
What kind of cat’s being followed by a moon shadow? Moon cricket
The smoke left behind when an atomic bomb explodes? A Japanese tossed salad
The NAACP has a strict standardized test to join
While not a for sale shuttle, the Millenium Falcon would be badass!
The same can be said for an X-wing fighter
Malcom X married a 13-year-old
Weddings are stupid
Stalin was the first Tea Party member elected to office. That seems pretty appropriate under the circumstances
Neoconservatives are liberals who have been mugged by …..God (when he says tithe 10% he means it, Him Damnit!)
Blacksaw Jim Duggan was also a Tea Partier
You can reuse flatulence deodorizer pads…but why would you?
If it deals with mathy, sciency stuff…”What Beth said” is likely to be the correct
Brokeback Mountain is the WORST western EVER!
Insert Clever Team Name Here didn’t use up any brainpower coming up with the name. They used some strong late rounds to take the win with 64 points. Team Redundancy Team jumped out of the gates early and lead, or co-lead the entire night, before dropping to 2nd place with 58 points. We’re Late But At Least We’re Not Pregnant turned in the best round 8 of the bar and vaulted from last to 3rd with 55 point. It’s the second quiz in a row that this team has kicked ass on a final round and finished in the money.

Once again, thanks for making it a great last few hours of the weekend, or a good start to a new week..whichever you call it. It was a bigger blast than a shuttle launch. See you on Thursday. Until then, may your flatulence be deodorized and your eyes blow in the same direction!
Love on ya,
