Woe to the forlorn quizzers (there must have been at least a few of 'em) who showed up to JAX on Wednesday night hoping to regurgitate useless facts for free beer and the approval of a man who does Christina Hendricks better than Geoffrey Arend. Still coming down off the high of last week's Arrested Development quiz, everyone's favorite Neighborhood Cafe proved last night that Thursday is the place to be. Also, it's at 8:30, not 8:00. Apologies for any confusion.
I very much appreciated the welcoming nature of the JAXers toward a lowly substitute Quizmaster. I also appreciated your appreciation of that one New Pornographers song I played, speaking of hot red-haired bitches. No thanks to the douchenozzle who yelled out the answer to the Grindr question in Round One. I hate having to ask y'all to spell.
Proving once and for all that wonders, in fact, will never cease, we had plenty of teams who guessed that the U.S. was among those countries whose national anthems were played in Round Seven. I don't know about you guys, but I've watched enough Astros games to supply a Lake Titicaca-sized pool of tears and distinguish my homeland's theme music from that of all the other lame-os who are gearing up to lose the Olympics this weekend. Beach volleyball, amiright? Titties.
A huge kudos again to the dude who came all the way from Seattle on a Geeks-themed road trip and suffered miserably at the hands of what I thought was an exceptionally tough quiz. I may never remember his name, but I hope he enjoys his bacon-flavored lollipop and is at least able to revel in the fact that I Eat More Pussy Than Cervical Cancer, as a team name, gave me more than one hearty chuckle. Thanks again for accepting me and my short skirt, and I'll see y'all around.
Oh, and here's the Facebook page again. Get on it!
