My favorite round last night was the Before and After round on rappers and websites. Eazy-Ebay? Chuck Deviant ART??? Hilarious! That's why I like working for GWD so much. There's never a shortage of rounds or questions that crack me up.
You guys did struggle with a couple rounds, as evidenced by the side margin comments: " This round sucks! But we know it's not your fault, we love you!" and "The music in this round is awful!"
Our top team, Strong Work! lived up to their name, with a perfect R7 on James Bond theme songs, and a 14 point R8, which they jokered. Mr. McGibblets finished in second with a strong R8 as well. (Side note: If you have a perfect R2 like Frito Pie did, make sure you JOKER THAT MOFO!!)
Third place was a little tougher to determine. I originally announced that it went to Mrs. Fielder's Cookies, but when I went to award their prize and take their picture, they said "Wait, one of our people is missing." Weelllllll, they had six people at the table at that time, so I had to DQ them for having too many. That meant that the prize went to the 4th place team. Thing is, there was a tie for fourth between Crazy Random Happenstance and Richard, Your Order's Ready, Richard? So I had to do a tiebreaker. I asked what time did the summer solstice occur in our time zone, without going over. The nice lady from Richard... got it closest to 6:09 PM, so they took home the $10.
All in all, it was a fun summer solstice quiz night. I even got to play a whole playlist of my favorite summer songs! Enjoy the long days, and I'll see you next week!
