I missed all of you last week, and I hope you missed me as well. I’m sure Caribbean Joe did an admirable job in my place, though. The dude knows how to host a Quiz. So where was I last week? I met 15 people in person from all over the country who had only previously met on a comedy website. We rented a 5 story mansion on the beach in Marina Del Rey, California. What an amazing weekend. It was truly difficult to come back. If it wasn’t for Quiz, I may have considered not coming back. Thursday’s Quiz didn’t feature playing in the snow on scoring breaks, like my Wednesday Quiz did, but I had a great time nonetheless.
So, my buddy Tom #3 is getting married. I’ve been to quite a few bachelor parties over the years. More often than not, they’ve been at strip clubs. There have also been trips to Vegas, cabins in the woods featuring playing with shotguns and clay pigeons and a lot of booze, and various other venues for drinking and messing with the groom to be. I have never seen a bachelor party go to Quiz, however. I applaud Tom #3 for his choice. I do wish he had brought strippers to the Crown, however.
Nobody gets a round on me next week, since Jeff the Chemist didn’t play last night, although his girlfriend’s team played, and beat our #1 team by 1 point.
So, what did we learn last night?
- Ned Beatty wrote “The Tale Of Peter Rabbit” as one of his huge series of books about anthropomorphic animals. You don’t want to read the one entitled, “Squeal Like A Pig”.
- Leave it to a team named Dutch Oven to answer that ‘fecal matter’ is one of the 4 Hippocratic humors. They claimed it was because one of their members is from the Netherlands, but I think I detected a double entendre.
- Aspartame, in addition to being an artificial sweetener, is one of the 4 DNA nucleotides.
- “A Nightmare On Elm Street” is not technically one of the movies in the “Friday The 13th” series.
- Ra and Apollo were gods, not kings.
- “Where’s Waldo” apparently won the 2001 National Book Award and was on Oprah Winfrey’s book club list.
- World War One is awesome.
- There are 2 Portlands, although only one gets a TV show.
OK, that’s it for this week. Come see us next week. Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel. Until then, ‘like’ this blog, go to the Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Geeks-Who-Drink-Pub-Quiz-At-Canyons-Crown/483388135009881 and ‘like’ us there too. Cheers!
