The Night Not Available In Stores
Quizmaster Soss

Tonight we got to do something I've secretly wanted for a long time. A round of AS SEEN ON TV crap! I'd honestly like there to be a full themed-out quiz on infomercial junk, but I'll settle for eight questions for now. On the other hand, it was easily the lowest scoring round of the night (one team answered every question but got zero correct!), but I still liked that we did it. I'm personally sad there was no mention of Perfect Polly. And here's a fun fact why: my very own father was the voiceover guy for that commercial! True life fact. Other

The Night You Were All On Your Phones
Quizmaster Soss

I really can't figure out why, but it seemed like a lot of you were on your phones tonight while we were quizzing. Normally everybody is pretty good about not using their phones so I don't have to thug out and throw The Quiz Law in your faces. But there must've been something going on. I kept poking around to each team trying to peek atch your phones, but nobody was on wikipedia or anything. It was really weird. Easily half of the room on a phone but nobody cheating. Well let's try to keep that to a minimum anyway pleassssse. Or at least turn your visual rounds in early before you pogo every possible moment in between rounds. On the other hand, I'll fully admit that when they make

The Night I Felt Pretty
Quizmaster Soss

Pretty much every day people compliment me on things. "Your muscles and butt look great today," they say. Or "your ambition and tenacity make me vomit" or even "I'm impressed you can wear that many condoms at once." But tonight's round of applause during my introduction made me feel things in my heart that I didn't know were possible. I knew they were possible in my nether regions, but I've never had an erection of the heart until now. So thank you guys for making a little girl from the heartland feel like a princess tonight. Tonight's quiz was insane, as far as how well everybody played. Most of you had over 70 points, and two teams over 90-pts is crazy. A very very competitive night

The Night I Let You Into My Heart
Quizmaster Soss

One of these nights at the quiz, I'm going to do something extra special for you. See, Maggie and friends at A Bar Named Sue don't actually pay me or anything to entertain you with a quiz. I just showed up one day and took the stage and everybody agreed I'm highly entertaining and witty and they just let me stay up there. And here it is, 80 years later, and I'm still at it. But I've been putting a lot of practice into my musical side (I go by DJ Cello) and I think I might unveil my first performance for you guys soon. It's a sonic wall of sound type performance with layers upon layers of digital stringed instruments and record scratching, but it's the lyrics that will really move you. Imagine

The Night I Loved Paula Abdul In A Lot Of Ways
Quizmaster Soss

I just briefly want to go over a couple high points and low points of the quiz tonight. Let's start with the high points... first you guys finally showed the love and obnoxious applause that Maggie, Tink, and Casey deserve for bustin' ass all night long getting you food and brew. I cried a little bit even. Solid show of gratitude, because - seriously - they deserve it. Especially on those nights when we have a packed room and they're running around making it look easy. Okay second high note: I got to play "Forever Your Girl" by Paula Abdul in the audio round!!! I thought this day would never come. I hope in December when Facebook is all like, "Here are the best things that happened to you

The Night TSA Screwed You Without Even Going To The Airport
Quizmaster Soss

The Round Four tonight was all about air travel and the good times we all enjoy whilst traveling. Just kidding, we all know it sucks. So it was pretty fitting that you guys did horrible that round (average score of 3). I used to always wonder what they do with the stuff they confiscate at those security gates. I imagined all the TSA agents running around their secret airport hallways showing off what cool stuff they looted that day. Chasing each other around with huge dildos and throwing nail clippers at each other like a game. Then one day I came home and my dad had like 4 boxes of pocket knives he'd bought on eBay from the TSA. WTF? He thought he'd resell them and make some

The Night I Resolved Myself
Quizmaster Soss

We're getting pretty close to halfway through the year and it's time to start thinking about what your stupid New Year's resolutions were and how you gave up on them 5 months ago.  You still have plenty of time to get them finished though, so let's address some of the most common resolutions.1. Learn to drive a stick shift.  You got this!  You can totally do it.  I believe in you.  It's not really any different from giving a very half-assed handjibber except that you also will be stomping your feet randomly.  Think of it as a sexy evening with your car while you fumble around trying to find its g-spot.  You got this!  You can totally do it.

The Night I Played Too Many Prince Songs
Quizmaster Soss

Welcome back from Memorial Day everybody.  For those of you that stayed inside and played video games and watched two seasons of Gilmore Girls, be proud.  Don't let all the pretty people on instagram fool you into thinking their lives are better just because they had pictures with a huge group of friends in some paradise-looking place.  Who needs them.  Doom and some beef jerky is just as fun.  As for me, well I was hanging out on a street corner yelling at cars and a bee flew up my shorts and stung me in the butt.  So, like... I'm pretty cool too obviously.   Anyway, tonight's quiz was a lot like a bee sting to the b-hole.  Or

The Night My Phone Didn't Ring
Quizmaster Soss

I'm going to pass on to you one of life's secrets to success. You ready?Leave your phone on silent.That's it. It's that easy. Admit it: you've never heard another ringtone and thought to yourself, "Now there's a person who's really got their life together." Nope. You know as well as me that any time you hear another person's phone go off, you instantly judge them. "What kind of terrible ringer is that? OMG who is this moron? How did I end up in bed with this guy?" Plus, having it on vibrate allows you the wiggle room to fake getting a call when you need out of a situation. "Sorry officer, I gotta take this. Can you uncuff me

The Night Bukakkalypse Drank Themselves Into 5th Place
Quizmaster Soss

Some of you may remember my mom quizzing with us last week here at A Bar Named Sue. Well, a while back, being the good son that I am and doing some computer maintenance for her while I was home for Christmas, I put an add-on to her Internet browser that changes the word "cloud" to "butt." Innocent enough, right? Well, last week while she was out here visiting she was complaining to me that some of her Facebook friends are now referring to clouds as butts. She said she said at first she thought it was because they're Canadian but now everybody's doing it. And my favorite is when she said it's so inappropriate that even weather websites now are calling clouds butts and that it must be some annoying

The Night I Tell My Origin Story
Quizmaster Soss

Let me tell you a little bit about how I came to be a quiz master. A long time ago, the gods of quiz were caught up in a vicious war. The greatest warrior the quiz universe had ever known was in love with the daughter of the quiz god-king. Or something. And the rest is pretty typical hero stuff… the king didn't like the warrior, the princess didn't care, yada yada yada they had a baby the king didn't approve of. That was me. Duh. The king had me sent away. Exiled to a planet called Earth where pub quiz have been underway peacefully every week at A Bar Named Sue. I was taken in by two wonderful loving Earth humans. And tonight, hopefully, you all got a chance to meet them because

My attempt at a glossary of Instagram acronyms.

Many of us have found ourselves confused by the hot new acronyms of the du jour on Instagram. You probably felt like you were losing your street cred because you didn't already know what #tbt meant the first time you saw it. Well, first of all, you're right. You're probably a loser now and can't ever get back coolkid status. But secondly, I'm here to help. I'm going to define all the latest hashonyms/acrotags for you right now. #smh = "so much horticulture"Commonly used to express disappointment, as in "I can't believe this thing happened because of all the things wrong with it, like how all these plants are growing but ain't nobody growing them. how the

The Night I Was Out Of The Loop
Quizmaster Soss

With Game of Thrones starting up again last weekend, I have a confession to make. I don't watch it. I want to use this blog as my sincere apology to how this probably somehow demeans you as a media-consuming millennial or whatever. I know that its return is literally the highlight of your year. I know it's how you connect with every person in your life you consider worth any of your time. I know watching it is the closest thing a human being can come to being immortal. And I know that, like, omg it's sooooooo good. It's not that I'm against stuff that's popular... for example, I like hamburgers and having my windows down and Paul Rudd's boyish charm. I just can't see the GoT appeal

The Night We All Die In The Worst Possible Way
Quizmaster Soss

There's only one thing left in the world that still never fails to amaze me. This, of course, is the fact that I have probably seen more boobies than all of my ancestors combined. God bless the internet. That being said, tonight's performance by The Bukakkalypse, was also a modern wonder. Their team name alone is an inspiration. As they exlained it to me, it's apparently "a bukakke apocalypse." Once it was slowly and simply explained like that, it all made sense. At first I thought it was some kind of duplicating mutant deviant villain, but then I realized it's basically a prophetic

The Night I Learned Something About Life's Treasures
Quizmaster Soss

A Letter To Everyone I've Ever Known   There's a growing trend amongst my peers and their friends, and the people older and younger than those friends, and the people they live with as well as don't live with - and that trend is, apparently, to pretend like my ultimate life's goal of hunting treasure is not a worthwhile pursuit.  What I'm saying is that everybody says I'm irresponsible when I tell them I want to quit my entire life, and leave everybody I know, with the singular goal of finding unfathomable riches.  So, you're all a bunch of dicks and I'm not giving you any diamonds when I find a cave full of them that are all bigger than your dream-crushing

The Night I Start A Selfie Revolution
Quizmaster Soss

Right now in 2016 we're stuck in a world where political conversations come up constantly, whether it's in person or on your annoying Facebook feed. And I just want to throw out that none of the candidates are talking about the biggest crisis facing our generation (and likely the next several generations): there aren't enough iPhone apps for looking at shamefully boring selfies of people. Yes, there are a handful of these apps and most of you probably already have them all... but we can do better and I want a president that acknowledges that we're only scratching the surface of how many self-indulgent completely pointless photos we could be looking at on our phones. I'm happy (SO happy)
