Sunglasses and Advil
Osman

Last night was mad real. NHL regular season is coming to a close which means the lubefest that is playoffs is about to begin. At least that's what you would think from the moans. I gotta say, this teen movie fan-fic category has got to be one of the more perverted rounds we've ever had. Especially the part where Ron and Ginny from Harry Potter fucked. They're siblings! Call me a prude but I draw the line at incest. "Fuck the Draft" and "Fuck the Police" as well. John Paul II could try all he wanted to stop Madonna but nobody can deny her flavor. Nigeria has a film industry and they produced over 1,800 moves in 2013. Just dwell on that

Cuz it's your dog!
Osman

I gotta say, I'm getting old, man. My hearing's going, my hair's falling out, I'm getting sick like every 3 weeks. When a parasite emerges from my midsection like Alien, don't say I didn't warn you. Things we learned at quiz: 1. Nebraskas sucksssssssss 2. Tasmania is not in Africa. 3. There were a lot of alliterative president's names in the early 1900s. Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Woodrow Wilson. We gotta bring this trend back. 4. My mom used to make huge batches of bing cherry jam and give people jars of it. We didn't really learn this at quiz but it's something I thought of when bing cherries came up and I found it fitting

The five foot assassin with the roughneck business
Osman

We had a particularly heady quiz at the MLP last night. And by heady, I mean low-brow. And by quiz, I mean orgy. On a positive note, my computer only crashed 4 times! HUZZAH!!!!! I'd just like to point out to all the people that guessed that Thomas Jefferson never had kids: it's pretty well-documented that he had kids. And they weren't white. I said that last night and a lot of people groaned. But you guys need to realize that you're groaning at FACTS! A little Montell Jordan always throws them off the scent. Portland vs San Francisco in the showdown of ultimate hipster meccas. Spoiler alert: There is no winner. We are all losers. Round

It was only a three-and-a-half-hour virus.
Osman

How's that for an obscure Fresh Prince reference? Last night was tough. I don't know what happened to me but I was weak as hell and feverish like some sort of sickboy. But quiz must continue and I gotta say, I handled it like a champ. I even went out afterwards. It was Patty's Day, I didn't really have a choice. It was gross though. For real, what a shitshow. Things we learned at quiz:  1. I don't care who you are; everybody loves Sade. 2. MLK is to black America as Mufasa is to Pride Rock. 3. Kevin Kline has slipped from the memories of this country's youth. 4. So has Kurt Russell. 5. Believe it or not, North Korea tries to

I miss the old Kanye
Osman

I tried sooooo so hard. I got there early and I was on top of everything at a quick pace. And through sheer focus and determination, I only went about 10 minutes over. Hooray for meeeeeeeeee! Things we learned at quiz: 1. An IED would make the worst IUD ever. 2. George Clinton was not a bluegrass singer. 3. Silicon is an element and silicone is found in titties. 4. Imelda Marcos held it down. 5. People think that Mr. Rogers sounds like the Beatles. In the end, only one victor could rise up from the cloud of blood and gore. And that victor was "Chik-fil-a-tio" Second place came down to a tie-breaker and "Squad Goals" edged "The

The shit show to end all shit shows
Osman

Honestly, last night was the first time I ever had trouble with a quiz. It seemed like everything that could go wrong did. And despite being cornered by adversity, I only went about as long as I usually do. Considering I started about 20 minutes late, I think that's what people refer to in the industry as "clutch". Take note, Lebron. Things we learned at quiz: 1. Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer. I don't care if he wasn't "alive" then, don't come at me like that with facts, bruh. Besides, where's the long-form birth certificate, Cruz? I need some sort of documentation to prove you weren't created in a lab with the purpose of sterilizing humanity. Not like actual sterilization,

"Atmosphere finally made a good record." Yea right, that shit almost sounds convincing.
Osman

Saw Atmosphere after quiz last night. It's probably the third time I've seen Slug live and I gotta say, 43-year-old white guy spits a better live show than most rappers out there today. Even my friend who hates rap liked it. And she hates rap. Things that happened during quiz: 1. wtf is "Scream Queens" 2. wtf is "Trumbo" 3. John Mayer and Deepak Chopra are basically interchangable. 4. Even if your answer is "Gerard Depardieu (The guy from 'The Artist')" doesn't mean that's the dude who was in the "The Artist". 5. Ben Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, and Henry Ford were never POTUS. And for real, Henry Ford? Dude wasn't even a politician

Cocaine in a Can
Osman

Yo guys, I know yall are wasted. And I know you're all highly competitive. And I know there's a lot of sports on TV and the testosterone is flowing hard. But let's remember to be civil. Think about all that humanity has overcome, everything we collectively have endured and all the progress we've made. For all of that experience to culminate into a dick-measuring contest at pub quiz is to spit at the entirety of human existence. We're better than that. Also, make sure to tip the bartenders and waitstaff cuz they don't really like me either. If ¡Que Chingados!, a fake beer that tastes and acts like cocaine, actually existed, that shit would fly off the shelves. Tall-boys

Please Say the Baby
Osman

WeezyFest 2K16 kicked off last night. Don't get burned. While it is correct that Britney Spears had a song about prerogatives, Bobby Brown had a slightly more famous song about prerogatives. It's Bobby, bitch. I gotta say that the best team name I've heard in a long time is "Halal, is it meat you're looking for?". It was probably cheating business, but still not bad. I even sang it once into the microphone. Sorry about that. The main thing I want to say is my friends and I have this thing we say to each other. You see, once upon a time, my friend Rachel went on like a 80 mile bike ride and when she showed us a route on a map, one of us (don't even remember who)

Your Bar Is Louder Than My Bar
Kirk

Wow, Blackhawks fans are LOUD!!  The Maple Leaf Pub is always a fantastic play to both watch hockey and play Geeks Who Drink pub quiz, and it takes an especially skilled substitute quizmaster to strategically place the questions around Blackhawks goals - which came in rapid succession tonight! Busy night with the aroma of deliciously grilled steaks wafting through the bar - six teams made it through the entire night and we had an incredibly impressive rally at the end to take things home tonight. Coming from nowhere, Soon To Be 40-Year Old Virgin played a 15/16 round 8 with their joker to capture the top of the podium, stealing the #1 prize from Caitlyn

Texas-transplant and glad to be here...Pennsylvania and the midwest both suck, so don't move there. Huge theatre fan, so expect me to look down my nose at you during Broadway-music rounds, and I kinda like sports too, especially the rules. Be nice to me, and I'll typically find a way to get alcohol to you.

"The Crow" By Edgar Allan Poe
Osman

Maybe I should keep my political views to myself. If you want to vote for Trump, you have the right to do that. But I have to right to tell you that you're a racist. You see, I'm brown. And when I hear this man says things like we need to build a "real wall" or that we need to put people into "camps" (just until we figure out what's going on!), I get pretty frightened. Not like a bullshit feeling, it scares me. And if I'm going to be profiled for things that terrorists do, then dammit white people, you're going to have to explain this fascist bigot surging in the polls. Fascist is not an exaggeration. Look up how fascists come to power and you'll see Trump's campaign. Also, A WALL???

The Guy Playing Table Hockey Came in his Pants
Osman

Almost finished on time this week! Almost... Big ups to all the people who tried to guess a Hebrew letter with assorted doodles. I love the ambition but I also laugh at your shortcomings. Also, calling Batman and Robin a "cinematic abortion" seems a bit harsh. That movie isn't even slightly cinematic. It's more of a literal abortion. Sarah Palin wants us to stick to guns, God, religion and the Constitution. Is she out of touch or am I? Cuz I'm good without like three of those things. Plus, we don't really need to include God AND religion. Seems redundant. To be fair though, I like dogs AND puppies.  In the end, "Choking Hazard (_)==D~" put up

Little Fat Man Who Sold His Soul
Osman

Two weeks in and still doing the same shit tho. This week's song train was pretty dope. It worked out to Lips Are Moving In Stereo Heartbreak Hotel California Girl on Fire Water Burn. Burn motherfucker. Burn. Gotta give a shout out to the lady who contested that "VR PORN WAS ALL OVER CES THIS YEAR", and looking up filthy videos. Love the ambition lady. You're too excited tho. Also, we asked about Jim Bowie and a super-evil type of smuggling that possibly made him rich. When you think, "What's the most evil type of smuggling you could think of in American history? Just the one worst type of smuggling that really makes you think, "Man, that's definitely something

YO AND WHERE IS DESTINY'S CHILD FROM???
Osman

H-TINE HOLD IT DINE Let's get one thing straight: Seth Curry is not and will never be Steph Curry. That's like when you wanted to eat Famous Amos cookies but your family could only afford Heinous Anus cookies. I'd love to take credit for that but it's a Doug Benson joke. Also, asking if Cloris Leachman is over 100 is cold-blooded man, yall changed overnight. She not even 90 yet, yall got her one foot in the grave man. She's gonna haunt the F out of your when you she gets a chance, you watch. Benedict Cumberbatch is sexy. I feel like women have been too vocal for men to deny this now. But good lord he looks like a rodent. He looks like real pervy.

Up for Grabs
Osman

I gotta say, "Trump and El Chapo 2016" blew it. They held a commanding lead through 5 rounds and inexplicably bounced off the face of the planet. The result was a field day as seven teams passed them and fought for the top two. In the end, Santa's Floppy Handshakes took the crown, giving some lady name Pavi (sp?) a memorable 30th birthday. Hopefully not as memorable as her night ;) Special shout out to the lady who won mad bonus drinks. She proved that no matter how broke you are, you can still get hammered. Kudos to you lady. Meanwhile, nobody knows what the Royal Society is and you can "see the sugar bowl do the tootsie roll" on the Good Ship Lollipop. Not New

I think his name is Fred Savage?
Osman

Quiz. Steaks. Debauchery. Typical Thursday night raucous at the Maple Leaf Pub. Here's what we learned: more people are pro-Manuel Noriega than pro-Optimus Prime, Randy Newman has lost a ton of times, and Nic Cage is a maniac but doesn't even hold a candle to Dennis Hopper, who incidentally held six sticks of dynamite to his chair to promote a movie in Houston. And do you hear about it on the liberal media? Of course not. You know what else? A lot of people think that Penny Marshall straight up killed a guy.  Also, Rodney Dangerfield snorted real lines of coke at his audition for Caddyshack. That's a power move if I've ever heard of one. Meanwhile,
