Wow, what a weird, wild night! Thank you all for coming out and experiencing...that, with us. Fun quiz tonight, with shenanigans, tangents, and shirt removals abound!
Our Mystery Shakespeare Round doth impress thine eyes with thee high marks attained. I twas much amuse'd that many a team t'were aware of the reflection of light, that answereth to thy name Tempestt Bledsoe, thee shining star divined from our beloved Cos'by Show. Huzzah, to those amongst you that pluck'd the answer from the deepest reaches of thine minds!
Ahem... The Xtreme Covers Round was, um, Xtremely annoying, amiright? One player asked if I knew who the artist we were hearing was, because they thought they happened to be a fan of one of the bands. Seriously. Incredible that some could decipher that that was Katy Perry, though no one could tell which song.
Strong showing in our Recently In Stuff Round, but I suppose that should be expected with so many teams devoted to the recently deceased QB. I loved our I Love My Dead Gay Round, partially for the fact we brought up Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball (it had adjustable jiggle factor. No joke.), but also because we got to hear John Smith's pronunciation of Zorro (Zarro?!?). Well, he got Bio-Pic right this week, let's give him that.
The Rube Goldberg inspired Video Round was lotsa fun too (we spared you the dubstep covers, so be thankful!). I loved havin' BttF, and PeeWee on screen, but I feel like there was a missed opportunity with awesome contraptions in Honey, I Shrunk The Kids! and Wallace & Gromit and the Case of The Wrong Trousers. Oh, well, I suppose Ernest Goes to Jail was pretty awesome too.
We had a rare three way tie tonight and to break it we had an Avenger's inspired Hulk off. I'll just say, lot of man-boob was exposed on stage tonight. We had a traditional Hulk rage shirt ripping, a Bruce Banner hitch-hiker, and a Hulk Hogan inspiring speech (including recommending vitamins and the requisite shirt ripping). In the end, our traditional Hulk rage-er took home the $15 gift card, and nearly killed me with laughter. Here's video evidence of the rampaging!
Thanks all for coming out tonight and putting up with John and my foolishness! Hope to see you all out again this Sunday or next Wednesday for more quiz, shenanigans, and tangents or “Quinanigents” (trademark pending)! Love y'all, mean it!
