|John LaHendro (Cousin Chet)
Johnny was raised in the Swiss Alps by his grandfather and often has trouble differentiating his life from the movie Heidi. He has a completely worthless degree in Creative Writing from the University Of Colorado, which he has parlayed into never getting a real job. When he's not quizzing, he can be found drinking good scotch and cheap beer and bitching about how Charles Bukowski has completely ruined his life. John is currently living in a remote area of south Denver, which he knows for a fact to be Denver due to the large number of DPD officers he sees hanging around his apartment complex. His hobbies include watching old episodes of Mystery Science Theatre, playing classic Nintendo games, and making fun of your favorite band. He also sometimes confuses his life with that of Batman and is currently trying to track down the Joker and bring him to justice.
Well, We’re winding down what’s been a really weird week of Quiz with a St. Pat’s Quiz. And by that I mean, we did one single round of Irish questions and played exactly 2 Irish songs. Neither one was what anyone was expecting. But hey, if you don’t love Morrissey, there’s something wrong with you. Or maybe you just have different taste music than I do. I like the Moldy Peaches “NYC Is Like a Graveyard,” you like “Harlem Shake.” We’re still just people, you’re just bad at life.
Speaking of the Harlem Shake, it’s time for that thing to go away forever. Seriously, we need to be done with all the Youtube video dance crazes. If you have enough time to make a Harlem Shake video, then you have too much time on your hands. Get a job, hippie.
Our friends from SLC stuck around for a second night of Denver quiz. If you ask me, they were just giddy about the prospect of drinking in a bar where they didn’t have to have a membership card. Unfortunately they couldn’t bring their sister wives because it would have put them over 6 players. But don’t worry, we showed them a good Denver time and sent them back home to Boba Fatt’s loving arms and ass tounging ways. Make it weird, Boba. Make it weird.
Man oh man, we just weren’t there on the different parts of the Enterprise were we? Two teams got a perfect score. One person informed me that even if they had seen every epsiode, they still wouldn’t have known those. But I now will remind you that you can go to the bookstore and by what is essentially an owner’s manual for the Enterprise with detailed descriptions of each part of the ship. You can also get one for the Millennium Falcon and a map of all Westeros you can hang on your wall and the Lord of the Rings, written in Latin. I guess what I’m trying to get at is that we nerds are very dedicated to our own nerdy things. And now you know.
