It's true ... I was relaxing before heading out to quiz with a nice cup of tea, listening to MSNBC because I am both a Microsoftwhore and a brilliant progressive. Oh right, it's the Republican National Convention isn't it? Some of my favorite folks were commentating like Rachel Maddow (I'd hit it), Lawrence O'Donnel (I'd hit it), Chris Matthews(I'd hit it), Chris Hayes(I'd hit it), and Ed Schultz. Sorry Ed. I had my cup out when Rick Santorum took the podium to bless the world with more wisdom from his hole.
My reaction to this basically preceded as follows. I recommend you watch every second of this: Epic Tea Time
As a result, I arrived at quiz in quite a state! A state that only lots of whiskey could negate. Or influence. I'm not sure. The rest was a blur, but in the end the bar was on fire and the floor was slick with blood. Wait, no, that didn't happen. This week.
I was shocked at how well everyone did on the drinking game round. I personally was stumped by a lot of these, but then again in middle school, high school, and college the only drinking games I played were drinking water and/or chocolate milk during long gaming sessions of EVerquest, Warhammer, or Dungeons and Dragons. I believe that drinking game is also called Asshole. However, most of you did really well so that only leads me to believe that you are indeed a bunch of vile derelicts.
In terms of wrong answers, round two had a good one of Fiona Apple singing Creep. So wrong, but I would totally listen to that. I'd also totally watch Fiona and Thom Yorke bone. It would be so awkward and sickly, like two chemotherapy patients deciding to hook up during a morphine bender. So hot. Round three was the round of all the shit my grandmother says, but I objected because none of it was embarassingly racist. Oh Meemaw, they aren't ALL moneygrubbing long-nosed savior murderers! As for Facebook and American Presidents, obviously you knew more about Facebook. You should be ashamed of yourselves, I know I am.
In the end, we had a tiebreaker on elevations and the Juggernaut nailed it within 99 feet. Should I be suspicious? I'm suspicious. He didn't even seem happy. He's cold. He's a machine. He has the cold dead eyes of a killer shark and they reflect the void within all of us.
Thanks to everyone that did their best to check-in and grab the raffle deal. We'll continue to work out the kinks, but I figure any of you will fiddle around with your pocket computer phone devices for a chance for free booze.
