OK, so I'll clear the air from the start. There was no Brad this week. But we had the return of Deena and friends (now big enough for two full teams), some new players, and a Sarah Frances sighting. Akin's Rape Babies - the team all the other quizzers wasn't carried to full term - got some redemption after losing the tiebreaker last week (SPOILER ALERT ON WHO WON Y'ALL) and Akin for a Rapin' came in second, which was a strong showing after their win during our inaugural quiz. We laughed, we cried, and we learned a little something about Republican Vice Presidents... and maybe a little something about ourselves.
A brief review on tonight's quiz content - for the first time in almost a month, we didn't have a round about the male penis. Instead, we did have a round about the female penis (known in some scientific circles as a "vagina"), and half of a round on boobs. And Dickens. And dinosaurs. And windows. Yeah, it was a weird night. Let's get to some awards.
Favorite Team Name of the Week - The West End Pub Refugees, so I can give a shout out to the team that migrated north this week, although I don't know if they exactly realize how true their name is. Don't you realize that once you leave the West End Pub, you can't go back? JWarr is like a mama bird. You have my stink all over you now; he won't take you back.
Runner-Up Favorite Team Name of the Week – Akin for a Rapin' because I had to at least acknowledge the dearth of Todd Akin-themed names. Just remember that rape isn't ever funny, unless it's a situation where someone gets raped after their rapist slips on a banana peel (what can I say, I'm a sucker for slapstick).
Favorite Wrong Answer of the Night - "Phoebe Cates" as the actress who went topless, only because I WISH SHE WAS THE CORRECT ANSWER. Back in the 80s, that chick was nails. Actually, she probably still is. Has anyone seen her since the 80s? If you have, please call 1-866-QUIZMASTER.
Least Favorite Wrong Answer of the Night - "A Tale of Two Cities" as the performer from the 80s who got his stage name from one of Dickens' works. I don't remember him exactly. Was he a wrestler for the WWE?
In the end, it was a battle between our two Todd Akin-themed teams (see to the left), and Akin's Rape Babies took the crown in the end, after they crowned. (GET IT?!) It wasn’t really even close. They had it locked up by round six. Congratulations guys! You’re the king of all nerds!
Here’s the most important shit you’ll read all day:
Kiss my ass! We'll see you next week for more abuse.
