So it’s Valentine’s Day 2013, woopty frickin’ doo-dah, why do we care about this holiday so much? If you need a holiday in order for you to spread love and give thanks for your loved-ones, SNAP OUT OF IT! So the history surrounding the origins of this February 14th holiday is debatable. Preceding 270 AD (supposedly the year of his death) a man named Valentine was not recognized by the Roman Catholic Church as being a Saint, mainly because those who celebrated at this time of the year were Pagans, who would gather at the ides of Feburary (15th ) to celebrate Lupercalia, a fertility festival dedicated to the God of Agriculture, Faunus.
They would meet in a cave and offer up a goat and a dog sacrifice, in which they would skin the hides from the sacrifice, cut them into belt-like strips, dip them in the sacrificial blood, and then take to town slapping women, and crops as a way of boosting fertility in both conception and crop (the women loved it, usually offering themselves up to be slapped with the bloody strip of dog or goat hide).
And I thought my “swag” was horrible!
Come here baby, let me slap you with this bloody dog hide… oooh , yeah, you like that… don’t you !
Since it was Valentine’s Day, not many lush-geeky type love birds showed up like I anticipated, instead I got all but 4 teams, and a few cameo appearance from people who don’t give 2 shits about that Hallmark holiday. And fitting were the drink specials on Pink Pussies and Blow Jobs. (Are there any masculine sexually themed drinks ? Like .. Iron Penis on the Rocks ?) Anyways with my small bunch of quizzers the showdown began, The teams for tonight included:
Jenna was lovely as always, I am so excited for the new mom, and I heard from a little bird that she is expecting a boy ! Gratz once again Jenna! (Doesnt she carry so well!) Thanks go out to Jason and Brigett for having me.
Lesson learned from tonight’s quiz: Get your Valentine shit-faced, and do quiz.
