Monday's at Double Daughters: awesome drinks, amazing food, entertaining people walking by outside, and some pretty smart people playing quiz. What more could a quizmaster want? It's like Christmas in August. Having a team show up for just Round 8 and and come in only one point below a team who was there for most of the quiz was just sad. Shame on you NIK'S DONKEY, what the hell was going on? I expect a MUCH higher score than 13. VAMANOS PEST AND SKINNY PETES took 1st place with MITT ROM KNEE IN THE BALLS and THOR DROPS THE HAMMER coming in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
I’m going to start putting together a playlist of your song requests. Visit our Facebook page (information below) to give me your song suggestions. If you’re feeling ambitious and want to put together one for the whole quiz then make sure to include at least 15 songs when you post it up.
Stats and The Sort
Round 1 – Eight Quick Questions on Banks
Average Score: 5.5; High score of 8 by Vamanos Pest and Skinny Petes
Howie Mandel cannot seem to stop ruining TV. Thank god 'Deal or No Deal' was canceled, if only 'America's Got Talent' could bite the dust as well.
Round 2 – AUDIO Fat Bottomed Girls – The Movie(16 points)
Average Score: 10.3; High score of 14 by Mitt Rom Knee in the Balls
Apparently I wasn't hosting a quiz as much as a karaoke session when one of our out of town teams started singing along to 'Truly Madly Deeply,' it was actually a pretty good rendition...maybe audition for Idol?
Round 3 – The Obligatory Olympic Medals Round
Average Score: 4.00; High score of 5 by Vamanos Pest and Skinny Petes
BALLZ DEEP, has Liechtenstein even won a medal at any Olympics? Or Tasmania for that matter?
Round 4 – Recently in Stuff: Chicken-Free Edition
Average Score: 6.80; Aced by Johnny K + The BETR Ladies
The thought of a urinal cake telling me to call a cab sounds...bizarre...I think the idea is there, it just needs to be better formed in to something like a video placed at eye level of some hot scantily clad girl telling me driving is a bad idea.
Round 5 – VISUAL The Geek 500
Average Score: 2.00; High score of 4 by Ballz Deep
Racing shows/movies was not a strong round for everyone. Brought out the first 0 from Johnny K + the BETR Ladies
Round 6 – How To Time Travel Without Killing Yourself
Average Score: 3.60; High score of 7 by Vamanos Pest and Skinny Petes
Answer of the night came from Ballz Deep where they confused Bill Cosby with Morgan Freeman. Can you imagine Bill Cosby hosting anything asides form a JELL-O commercial. HA!
Round 7 – AUDIO Where In The World Are Matt And Bob
Average Score: 3.66; Aced by Thor Drops The Hammer
Looks like someone was paying attention to pretty much the only thing on TV the last couple of weeks.
Round 8 – Random Knowledge (16 points)
Average Score: 5.71; High score of 12 by Vamanos Pest and Skinny Petes and Mitt Rom Knee In The Balls
Fun fact of the night: The first time the Olympics were in London, they ran for about 6 months. They must have held an event every other week or something because there were less people and less events. Though, back then the medals were still solid gold vs plated like they are now....so deal with 6 months to earn a large chunk of gold would be ok.
Averages above are pre-joker.
Say What!?!?! You have a Facebook!?!
We have a page dedicated just to our Monday night pub quiz at Double Daughters which can be found here. Go there to tag yourself in the weekly photos and use it to recruit your friends (or enemies) to come to quiz!
Do you have a question about the quiz in general? (What is the airspeed velocity of a laden swallow? I have to pick up my cat from the vet, can we start later? ) Perhaps you have a picture from quiz you want to share with everyone…maybe even shame some people with. These are good reasons to go check out the Facebook page. Have fun with it; think of it as ‘your happy place.’
