Whiskey is my friend. Tequila, not so. In fact, I would say that whiskey is a lot like my good friend and scorer, Tom Bombabdilleenan. He's props me up, gives me confidence, convinces me to like myself, convinces me to do good and strong things. Tequila is more like, well ME, actually. Very sneaky and clever. Convincing you to do things you should not do just to cause chaos and disorder. You think you are doing the right things but perhaps, if you looked at it from other angles, it really goes against social norms. Tequila might be liquid lizard brain.
What I'm saying is, I began the quiz last night with some whiskey. As a result, I think we had an awesome quiz. I gathered enough evidence afterwards to support this assertion. Professionals, out of towners, FORBES magazine. If this were a Wikipedia page on how awesome my quiz is, I would have plenty of trusted citations. AS ANY WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE SHOULD HAVE REGARDLESS OF WHAT LANGUAGE IT IS IN. I'm looking at you, DUTCH.
We started off with things that happened while you were wasting your life doing something you hate. Other people might call that 'current events' but other people live behind a wall of their own illusions. Ridiculous things you gems didn't know were forgetting Snoop Dogg is dead and Snoop Lion is the man now, not caring what the real title of Hunger Games 2 is, and the only Indian-American reporter you know being Sanjay Gupta.
Some of you did suprisingly well at the Not Quite Sunday School round. All I know is I was disappointed in the round in general because "Not Quite Sunday School" is the name of the Dom/sub roleplay scenario I do sometimes involving a Priest, School girl, and about 60 feet of rosary beeds.
Cut down in their prime started up next, quizzing how well you know death. Again I was disappointed when I saw the reference to 'enterer of dragons' because I thought maybe there would be some illustrations to one of my favorite Bilbo/Smaug slashfics.
Speaking of Bilbo, he's not a town in Spain with the Guggenheim. And 'little people' in a visual round doesn't instantly denote a Monty Python offering. And does Keanu Reeves have a rider in his acting contracts that his character has to be a former Ohio State Quarterback? I might actually respect him if he did that, and if I could respect anything at all.
The quiz ends with the most cheers for Bill Cosby in the 21st century, ever.
Come back next week to meet my mother. She will be there. You can blame her for nearly everything that I do to you.
