I need the Heimlich
Osman

Dawg I'm rewatching LOST. LOST is the shit. I feel like it gets a bad rap but it totally revolutionized the way we watch TV and the sort of production value we find on modern shows. There is no Game of Thrones without LOST because the budget wouldn't have been approved. If you've never watched it, do it. It's doper than people think. Plus Kate is hot af. Things we learned at quiz:1. Fuck Harambe.2. Fuck Trump, too. Can we just stop talking about him?3. Apparently, I cannot pronounce "troposphere" or archipelago. But it's kinda like whatever, you know? I got more important things to do. Like rewatch LOST. 4. Yea, he's called Puff

My Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake with Kool-Aid

It's impossible to be cool while simultaneously saying, "By golly!"3. So why, oh, why, oh? Why, oh, why, oh, why, oh? Are we still in denial when we know we're not happy here?4. Some people think the apocalypse has already started because one of the signs of the apocalypse from the Bible is that wormwood will fall from the sky.

Hey have you heard about my best frands?
Osman

My frands came to quiz last night. I'm going to talk about my fraaaaands.That's Herrerbear. He's a cybernerd. He'll cyber with you anytime you want. And you'll like it.Then, there's Ms. Fairy Smile. She's got hair like a great, big ball of yarn. She would make the ideal protagonist in a children's book. Next up, we got Jackie Boy. This guy's a stud! He's got great handles, a strong work ethic, and unmatched basketball IQ. His main weakness is off-the-court distractions. If he puts his nose to the grindstone, keeps grinding, keeps chopping, then this kid's going places in this league.Lori's in the back, she's just photobombing.

Is there anything harder than reheating french fries?
Osman

Yea, my dick. WuzgoooooooodIt's my mom's birthday. I'm about to meet up with my parents in a few to eat some dope ass foods. They're really the best. And the worst. But I guess that just speaks to the inconsistency of human beings. Dank.I totally forgot to mention this last night, but Gonzo karaoke is going on tonight at the Maple Leaf. If you're reading this, go to that shit.Things we learned at quiz:1. There is no U.S. Agency called "Border Control", but it might get renamed that.2. You don't know Bo, ya bish.3. OK! OK!

Catfish? Catfish.
Osman

Sup fool! Shireen just brought me pizza. I'm going to try really hard not to call her wee-wee. But I'll probably fail. Because wee-wee is the greatest nickname of all-time. I sing it to the tune of Macho Man. "wee wee wee wee weeeeeeee, wee wee wee wee, wee wee wee wee weeeeeeeeee". She hates it.Things we learned at quiz:1. It's impossible to say "Quebecois" without sounding like a douche. 2. I don't care what anyone says, when it's all said and done, Desiigner's "Panda" will be a more culturally significant song than John Lennon's "Imagine". 3. Snow Leopards? Snow Crabs? Coin flip.4.

It's Bigger Than Hip Hop
Osman

Who shot Biggie Smalls? If we don't get em, they gon get us all.I know a guy named Rommi. Rommi is not somebody I hang out with. In fact, I've only met him once. But, for all these years, he's been my facebook friend. Rommi is a prototypical reddit neckbeard troll. And for a long time, it was more or less amusing; Rommi would post some bullshit, say something snarky and it would be whatever. The only time this changed is a few years when he was having mental health issues and he himself was suicidal. Fortunately, at the time, he pulled through.For the past year, I have not seen a more vocal Trump supporter than Rommi. He routinely

Who wants to rock the party?
Osman

Man, only a few more days of this bullshit until we find out whether or not western civilization is going to collapse on itself. Spoiler alert: it's probably going to happen either way. I voted early. They could probably tell who I was supporting based on the weed smoke :DI'm currently watching this Bojack Horseman. This shit is super overrated. That's right, I said it. But come on, it's just another surly cartoon character a la Moses. No originality at all. Anyways, I'll probably love it after a few more episodes. I'm a sucker for comedy.Meanwhile, we had a quiz. It was brutal. We Love This Dog ended up with first place. They

Wouldn't you think I'm the girl, the girl who has everything?
Osman

It was my nieces' birthday (week)!!!!! They are the best. Their names are Jannah and Sakina, and they turned 6 and 4, respectively. It's truly amazing to watch babies turn into children and eventually people. Like, for real mind boggling. We (human beings) reside at the apex of the pyramid of dominant species and all of us at one point were amazed by dumb shit like animatronic tigers and kid's menu cheese pizza (we went to Rainforest Cafe). And despite all of those distractions, we went to the fucking moon. Absurd. I got them two books to share. One is called "Little Humans" by the guy who does Humans of New York. Their mom is from Queens, so I got to give them a little

Local Man Ruins Everything
Cody H.

Hello, everyone! It's been just over a year since I've had the privilege of subbing here at the Maple Leaf Pub, and it truly remains an unique experience. Great food, great brews, and I get to watch a bunch of Pengiun fans yell a a TV and curse a defenseman for signing a contract I think? I don't know, I've ice-skated like twice in my life. Things were going great until tragedy struck in Round 7 when, somehow, the mixer fell off the wall behind me and took the auxiliary cable with it. With one half of it snapped off in my laptop's aux port, we were kind of up a creek. So, we pivoted. It was going to be a great Round 7, but instead we got to hear me yell about emergencies and random

Cody is 5'7", wears a size 11 shoe, and maintains a very consistent panda bear shape.

It's not about narrative, you're just being an asshole
Osman

Damn, I gotta say. The grilled cheeses at the Maple Leaf are amazing. Seriously, if you haven't had one you need to fix that. Now. ASAP. Pronto, Tonto. I really like the Italian but you can't go wrong with any of them. And get some cheese tots on the side, you deserve it. We know you've been working hard on your figure and it shows, what's one little grilled cheese with tots gonna do? You're gonna relapse into being a fat fuck again, that's what. That's why I've learned to embrace it.Things we learned at quiz:  1. My microphone busted. Back up mic was even worse. We made it tho, fam. 2. Anytime we get to celebrate the Backstreet Boys,

I'm sorry I yelled at you
Osman

It was just a joke. Albeit, not a funny one, but those are my specialty. Anyways, I tried to find you after to apologize, but you had already left, probably while cursing my name and shaking your fists at the heavens. Either way, I wanted to say I'm sorry. Also, you're fucking hot. It's ridiculous actually how hot you really are. I mean, for real. I be like: Dear Diary, The ass was fat.   You go on and get it, girl.   Things we learned at quiz: 1. I probably botched the first round pretty hard but thankfully people are too drunk and stupid to notice :) 2. Nobody know who Cage the Elephant is. 3. Absolutely NOBODY

You're a racist
Osman

I don't wanna be preachy right off the bat. It's just been on my mind a lot. Like, please? Just stop being so goddamn racist. I'm not even talking about cops or Kaepernick or whatever. Those are iceberg tips. I'm talking about mass incarceration, imbalances in the justice system, housing discrimination, lending discrimination, systemic poverty, I could go on and on. We don't need a wall. Shit, smash the borders. Everything will be just fine. Just stop being so racist dammit. And now it's awkward. Goddammit. Here's what we learned at quiz.1. I never read LOTR so I don't know who Tom Bombadil is but he's not in the movie and people think that's funny I guess. 2.

How fast can I blog? Pt. 2
Osman

If any of you read my Luke's Icehouse blog (don't know why you would), you'd know that I masterfully crushed my blog within mere minutes. This time, though, I'm definitely pissing in the wind. I gotta board a plane to Washington D.C. in like 45 seconds. So this one is gonna have to be fucking breezy. What will I do? Will I rehash my Frederick Douglas joke from the Luke's blog? I fucking should. That was an amazing joke. Seriously, how am I going to top that in such little time? Bottom line: I won't. I'm already taking too long. For real, though, I gotta fucking go. Brunch Club won again. Assholes. Second place was Is

LOOKS LIKE MEAT'S BACK ON THE MENU, BOYS!
Osman

That's right, fresh meat. I'm talking about newly-hired, future quizmaster Danny "Bonaduce". I don't think he realizes what he's getting himself into. It's gonna be a bloodbath. Seriously, bruh. Better bring a buttplug. Things we learned at quiz: 1. Danny's fucked. 2. Pennsylvania is cool I guess. But Philadelphia is literal garbage. I think it was Bill Burr who pointed out that Joe Frazier is from there and yet, they built a statue to Rocky. One of the greatest boxers of all-time and they worship a 5-foot Italian with a speech impediment. 3. Apparently we're including dogs as lead actors now. Like Air Bud. 4. Jeffrey Dahmer was truly
