This week’s quiz was like the Civil War, in that it tore families in two and reeked havoc on previous relationships. Take, for example, our second and third place teams. You’ll note in the picture a group of 7 friendly and seemingly happy women celebrating a happy occasion. Enter the pub quiz, with its 6-person team limit. Suddenly, and without warning, factions develop. The happy group ruptures into a 3 and 4 person team, sitting at the same table, pretending to be nice, but feeling blind hatred inside. Look again at that picture of the 7 of them. Have you seen a more thinly veiled rage?
Just the same, Thursday was a mostly peaceful night at An Tua Nua, with steady competition throughout the evening. We Miss Harrison staked out an early lead in the first round, busting out impressive knowledge of the solar system among other things. It was Full Frontal Nerdity who took the lead in round 2, though We Miss Harrison quickly regained and held control for the rest of the evening. The angry women on Who The F Cares and Full Frontal Nerdity continued to duke it out for second place throughout the evening.
It seemed like the nerds would win second for sure (nobody could touch We Miss Harrison by round 5 or so), but a badass display of random knowledge by Who The F Cares propelled them into the lead at the end.
Ultimately, Harrison proved irrelevant to this team of experts, who dominated the show without him/her. Let’s hope these folks don’t cause any trouble, now that they’ve had a string of wins the last three times they showed up. Harrison may well not miss them if they let it all get to their head. A final note, a lot of people know a great deal about what y’all are going to make DMX do. And more than I would have expected about Honey Boo-Boo. Go figure.
