Please Hammer Don't Wheatus
Todd Holloman

Whatever happened to Wheatus? They had a hit back in 2000 with “Teenage Dirtbag” (great song) and that was the last I remembered hearing about them, until they popped up during one of our audio rounds during the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company last night. After the quiz, I decide to solve the mystery of the disappearing Wheatus. I enlisted the aid of the Interwebs and discovered that Wheatus still exists and they’re working on a new album, which will be their sixth. There are currently six members of the band and Wikipedia lists 23 former members. That’s a lot of turnover. Maybe Wheatus is the rock band equivalent of some elite

If I Cook My iPhone in the Spy Microwave, Can I Have Healthcare?
Todd Holloman

It’s the morning after the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company and my microwave is watching me as I type this. Not really. That would be silly. Or would it? Think about it. We all have a microwave in our homes. There’s a microwave in the break room at work. Hotel rooms have them. Every convenience store in America has a microwave, so you can heat up a burrito at 3am. We’re surrounded by microwaves. They are… (slight pause while I Google a fancy word for “everywhere”) …ubiquitous. Maybe it’s not such a silly idea that the shadow government would be using microwave ovens

Yes, I Will Accept Genital Warts
Todd Holloman

Yesterday in Kentucky, the temperature was in the mid-70’s and the skies were sunny. “Would you look at all the people enjoying this weather? They’re dumb and I don’t like them,” said Nature, adding, “Here’s a cold front mofos!” Cold Front meets Warm Front. There’s small talk. They have drinks. They go back to Warm Front’s place. Warm Front puts on a Hamilton, Joe Frank, and Reynolds album (hey, it’s a meteorological system, don’t judge its musical tastes). Things get physical. There are weather-related sex-noises. Then…BOOM…Warm Front and Cold Front make a thunderstorm baby. “Mmmmm…that

Will I Need Tissues and a Therapist Next Week, Too?
Todd Holloman

It was a very special Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company last night. Things got emotional. Tears flowed like beer. People needed to be held. Must’ve been that category where I played real sad death scenes from animated movies. One minute you’re drinking a beer and laughing because your movie geek buddy missed a question about Stanley Kubrick (‘sup Johnny Holt) and the next minute you’re listening to Mufasa die all over again. It got so bad, we had to set up a “therapy tent” outside the brewery. It wasn’t all painful childhood trauma, though. We also had a round with Coldplay’s Chris Martin warbling

Is That a Corona in Your Pants?
Todd Holloman

Another week in Trump’s America and, luckily for us, it’s still legal to be smart. As of this writing, there have been no executive orders banning book learning or turning the Library of Congress into the world’s largest indoor mini-golf course. And so, it was without fear of government intervention or deportation that we gathered at Dry Ground Brewing Company for our weekly quizapalooza beer party. In the words of Pliny the Elder, “If you give a mouse a cookie, it poops. Rub that poop on your head. BOOM! Instant boner party!” I may have paraphrased that a bit. Pliny did believe that mouse poop was a male enhancement tool, though, and

Taylor Swift Got Drunk and Tried to Eat My Pizza
Todd Holloman

Let’s talk about expectations. We all have them. We expect the sun to rise every morning. We expect the next “Star Wars” movie will have a spaceship. We all expected that rebooting Vin Diesel’s “XXX” series was not the greatest idea. Lately, we expect our new POTUS to say something dumb on a daily basis. Personally, I expect every slice of pizza I eat to be delicious, no matter where it came from, because pizza is perfect food. Also, drunk people who try to engage me in conversation when I’m on the microphone in the middle of a round during the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company should expect that I’m going

For God So Loved the Geeks...
Todd Holloman

Isaac Asimov once spoke of a “cult of ignorance” that existed in the United States and every year we keep proving him right. There are exceptions, however. One of the major ones being the weekly Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company. It’s a celebration of smart people. (cue patriotic orchestral music) A place where the intelligent can be intelligent without fear. A time when citizens of this great land are rewarded for their brain power, instead of being called names on social media by people who don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re” and who also think “likes” can cure cancer.

Warren Burgers are Very Conservative with the Condiments
Todd Holloman

Our four most recent Chief Justices of the Supreme Court have two things in common: they’re white and they were all appointed by Republicans. That’s just one of the things we learned at last night’s Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company. Two of the aforementioned justices were named Warren Burger and Earl Warren. Apparently, having “Warren” in your name vastly increases your chances of being a SCOTUS judge. Also, after retirement, Warren Burger opened a chain of “Warren Burger” restaurants, which featured such menu items as the BJB: Blind Justice Burger with RobeSauce and sliders called Lil’

Mary Tyler DON'T SAY IT!
Todd Holloman

Team names. Let’s talk about them. They are one of the most entertaining aspects of the Geeks Who Drink experience. Some people go for puns. Some tie in recent events. Some are so profane they make the Devil himself blush. Some simply ridicule me, your Quizmaster. I look forward to the team names in our weekly brain-climb to the top of Smarty Pants Mountain. So, when I was informed last night by a team member that his team had rejected his team name suggestion, I was all ears. Let me just say, “Shame on you, Mount Punch More Nazis (which I admit, is a pretty great name AND sentiment), but you could have been Mary Tyler Mortis!”

354 Days Without a Bear Attack
Todd Holloman

Last night was the final Geeks Who Drink pub quiz under the Obama presidency and Dry Ground Brewing Company was packed. It was the night before the Inauguration and people wanted beer. Some came to celebrate. Some came to mourn (okay, MOST came to mourn). All came to quiz. While Toby Keith was making America great again with songs about blowing up everything not American while drinking cheap keg beer out of a red Solo cup, we were drinking delicious, locally brewed craft beer and answering questions about eastern monotheistic religions and TV theme songs. Next week, things will be a bit different. We’ll be introducing some new categories. They

I CCCuP
Todd Holloman

In the past few days, our country has been subjected to every pee-pee joke imaginable. For about a 48 hour period, the interwebs were all yellow. And it was glorious! Well, for most people. I’m sure for some of our citizens, the pee jokes wore thin pretty quick. If you were one of those citizens and you came to Dry Ground Brewing Company for Geeks Who Drink last night to escape The Great Wiz of 2017…I’m sorry. Cuz we were all about those piss jokes, yo! We had an entire category devoted to it. But, hey…it’s better to be pissed off than…well, you know. Now, spell ICUP. It wasn’t all urine puns, though. Round

The Snow Witch Project
Todd Holloman

The first snow of the year fell on Paducah yesterday. We got a whopping tenth of an inch. Needless to say, local grocers were sold out of milk and bread in no time. I don’t know if that happens in other parts of the country when there is snow in the forecast, but here in Kentucky, the mere mention of wintry precipitation sends people into an apocalyptic doomsday panic that results in harried, sweaty-palmed treks to the super market for milk and bread. Why those two things? I mean, I realize they’re staples, but is there some kind of secret milk sandwich recipe handed down from Viking lore or something that helps keep one warm on a winter’s night? Or do these people constantly

Should Auld Quizzes Beer Forgot?
Todd Holloman

If 2016 was a person, it would be a…wait…never mind. The personification of this year would be too horrible to contemplate. It would be the kind of creature that would haunt your dreams or, somehow, get elected president. *shudder Last night was our final quiz of 2016 at Dry Ground Brewing Company. We packed the house with 20 teams, ready to kiss this year goodbye with beer and questions about chamber pots. In other words, a normal Thursday at Geeks Who Drink. Usually, this would be the part of the blog where I make fun of a team or individual for being obnoxious or not following the rules. However, even though we had one of our

The Xmas Oyster
Todd Holloman

Twas the quiz before Xmas and all through the brewery, not a creature, except one or two, knew who The Dead Milkmen were. If you want to know why everything has been awful, lately…I’d start there. But, hey…who gives a rip? It’s almost Xmas! It was a pre-Xmas quiz party at Dry Ground Brewing Company with Geeks Who Drink. We had Xmas songs, wise women and wise men, gold beer in place of the frankincense and myrrh, a team with the word “angel” in its name, and shepherds asking the newborn king to help them answer questions. However, there were no pregnant virgins in attendance, as far as I know. One of my

I Promise There Are No "Rogue One" Spoilers Here
Todd Holloman

I’m going to try really hard not to write about “Rogue One” and focus on last night’s Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at Dry Ground Brewing Company, however, it’s not going to be easy, since your humble Quizmaster and pretty much everyone who attended last night’s quiz went to see “Rogue One” after the quiz was over. So, here goes nothing… “Rogue One” is a good “Star Wars” movie. It tells the story of… Dammit! So sorry. We had a fierce battle for quiz supremacy last night. It was a thrilling race to the top of Smarty Pants Mountain, much like the thrilling battle

Donny Can You Hear Me?
Todd Holloman

It was a battle on the frozen tundra at last night’s Geeks Who Drink pub quiz. Well…not ON the tundra. We walked across the frozen tundra to get to Dry Ground Brewing Company. Actually…it wasn’t exactly a tundra…it was a parking lot. It was really cold, though. Donny Osmond. That’s right, Donny Osmond. We had an entire round devoted to the most famous Mormon this side of Brigham Young. When I was a kid, Donny released a song called “Puppy Love.” That was in 1972. Yes, I was alive in the 70’s, you whippersnappers! I had the record of “Puppy Love” and I played it over and over again.
