Wow, can we pack more people into the Ballard Loft? I bet we could, but everyone getting their drinks and food might be pretty difficult. It would, however, not be many more people than the amount we had last night at quiz. By the end of the night, we had thirty-six teams. As far as I can recall, that is the upper limit of teams that I've had at the Loft before. Well done people, please continue to attend me and make me feel like a God.
I don't really care what YOU think, but I believe last night's quiz was really well done. There were lots of good coverage, variety, and humour. There were lots of places where I can insert my own shame and disease for your amusement as well. Everyone won last night, except Canada. Also, the dude who failed the firework tiebreaker originally failed AGAIN. I both smirk at your despair and feel bad about it. It didn't last long, but it did happen. Honest.
Next, of all the rounds, everyone did the worst at the Dr. Seuss round. Do you all hate children or something? You should. I did feel like some sort of ambassador bridging the eternal divide between jocks and geeks with our round six about questions/sports nicknames. No violence erupted, no wedgies were given, no threats of "you'll be pumping my gas someday!" (I realize this is not a valid geek-to-jock response in states that are not Oregon or New Jersey). However, in the end, one team did write down that the round really wasn't a sports round and that I was a liar. While I AM a liar, it was as sporty as we may get.
In regards to the title of this post, most of you missed it I assume. Apparently, due to the fact that most people do not have to work on Wednesday, the Loft flooded with douchebags, bros, bro-douches, douchebros, bro-bros, douchedouches, bra-bros, and Brosiden, God the Brocean as I settled down to my post-quiz grilled cheese. Wow. Woah. There was cheering and woo-ing and shots of Jaeger. I feel bad for the staff because I'm sure they were tired from the packed-as-balls quiz night. I am just about able to suppress my fear of being in public with others for the duration of quiz, so this was far too much.
In conclusion, butts.
