The Night Everywhere Else Was Apparently Closed
Quizmaster Soss

Was the Olive Garden closed or something?  More than a few of you popped into my quiz party tonight and more than a few of you proved you deserved a place at the table.  The audio song title round had an average score of 12, which in my opinion is the threshold of when you should use your joker.  And in fact, that was where the majority of teams used it.  But it was Touched By A Dangle that really hit a stride tonight.  They took a commanding first place by missing only five questions the whole night.  If my memory serves me correct, that is a new Bar Named Sue record (previously it was six).  Interestingly, the 2nd place team, Grandma's

The Night I Confessed I Was Wrong About Raymond This Whole Time
Quizmaster Soss

Whenever people tell me that they, in fact, do not love Raymond, I used to passionately stick up for him. "But we all do. All of us love him! Don't be the one guy against him," I would rebuttal. And not just Raymond, but I assumed everybody loved his whole family as well. Television wouldn't just make stuff up. They're a lovable and relatable tv family, right? Well... then I finally watched the show. This whole last week. All nine seasons, in fact. The show actually gets better as it goes along (season 7 being my personal favorite). But that doesn't mean it's good. It's not, to be frank. And I can now understand why some people don't love him. What's

The One Night A Week I'm Not Training For The Olympics
Quizmaster Soss

When I'm not hosting a quiz at A Bar Named Sue, I'm training to be a dodgeball champion. I spend 12-15 hours every day punishing my body to be all it can be in the ancient sport of dodgeball. And so when the Olympics come on tv and there's no dodgeballing to be found, I get sad. It should be an Olympic sport and you know it and the IOC know it and Obama know it and it should be an Olympic sport. When that day comes, I'll be ready. I apologize now for the Tuesday night quizzes I'll have to miss while I'm winning a gold medal. Not for my country. Not for my team. Not for my friends and family that helped me achieve it. Not for dodgeball players around the world. Nope... FOR

The Night It Was August Again
Quizmaster Soss

Welcome to August. Not only is this the only month with no holidays even remotely important, not only is it the month I was born, and not only... actually nevermind - that last one is what I wanted to focus on. I was born this month. So start writing your lustiest limericks in my honor and I expect them to be truly inspired. Because, like, I'm an inspirational figure in your life, duh. So you have fair warning now. I expect to be lavished with literary worship and Amazonion gifts. I'm happy to share that you guys did a much better job this week than at last week's quiz, which seemingly kicked your ass and made out with your sister. Tonight, we got to remember the many great things

The Night We Learned Too Much
Quizmaster Soss

I don't consider myself a hero, but it's not like I'm going to reject the notion after hearing it so many times. It's true that I am a local role model. And the service I most enjoy providing is free knowledge to friends and neighbors at my local A Bar Named Sue. Tonight I was able to teach you about Urdu, zonk, and Scherfig. Penetration, BDSM, and moisture. Clinton, Wasserman Schultz, and Bloodsport. Tonight's quiz seemed to get lower scores than normal and so I take that to mean you all got to learn something tonight - and I take pride in being the wizard who gave you the gift of knowledge. It was an honor to share my intellect with you. I just want to point out the "Clinton, Wasserman

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
