The Night Horses Were Not Harmed
Quizmaster Soss

This is pretty old news, but I recently found out that some IKEA's were putting horsemeat in their meatballs. And I'm like, "where do you even get horsemeat?" Obviously from horses, but why do people even have horses? In the same way your mom and all her friends don't really get why computers are so great, that's how I am with horses. I understand that people like them and a lot of people use them, I just don't really get why.Anyway, this is all to say that I want to offer my personal guarantee that there is no horsemeat in my quiz. There might be horsemeat used somehow in the making of your tennis shoes, or your pillows, and obviously your meatballs, but I don't use horsemeat

Breaking Ties Like I Was Your Real Dad
Quizmaster Soss

Raise your hand if you already have all your Christmas shopping done! [looks around...] Yeah I figured it was just me. Between Thanksgiving Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Sex Toy Sunday, Cyber Monday, and the exceptional deals of 2% Off Tuesday, I was able to find great deals on all of the crappy gifts I get my family already. So, Santa, you can suck a Yule Log because I'm done with you already.The biggest advantage to getting your shopping done early is that you can escape having to wait inlonger and longer lines as time goes on listening to Christmas songs that are more and more annoying as we get closer to Christmas.Okay… I'll stop

The Night Before The Feast
Quizmaster Soss

I'm not normally one to toot my own cornucopia, but this year I hope we can all come together and really focus on what you should be thankful for… me. Similar to the white man bringing weapons and Thanksgiving feasts to the New World, I bring gifts of quiz to you. So in a way, this week's holiday is a celebration of all the wonderful things I have brought to your simple life. Thanksgiving has gotten out of hand lately. Celebrating parades and football and family and nobody is giving proper gratitude for the quizmasters of the world. So as you're saying grace before dinner this Thursday, make sure to mention me. And maybe also have a moment of silence but instead of silence

The Night Your Brain Was On Drugs
Quizmaster Soss

I know this obviously doesn't affect us here in Utah, but now that a bunch of other states voted to decriminalize weed, that means about 20% of Americans will soon be able to legally get high. That should make your Christmas vacations a little more tolerable hopefully, you grinch. Anyway, it was fitting, then, that tonight we did a round all about drugs and alcohol. Judging from the scores, you guys were pretty excited about that. Most of you even got ketamine, because y'all apparently don't mess around with boring stuff like pot. Of the 15 teams quizzing tonight, only one team didn't ace that round. And even they only missed one. The most revealing round of the night, however, was

The Night Nothing Went Wrong
Quizmaster Soss

What a great night, right!? We had a really great time here at A Bar Named Sue, quizzing our hearts out. There was a really fun round on mash up books by various authors, we heard some Justin Bieber songs, we identified a vast array of food reality shows, and we got to listen to a bunch of Oscar-winners in some of their terrible movies. It was pretty much the ideal night I would say!The Arctic Circle Jerks would have to agree with me… they won first place despite being mostly incompetent. What a shocking upset, right?? Not far behind them, He-Queefing Missile was shocked and saddened by tonight's 2nd-place finish. Honestly, they were a little

The Night The End Began
Quizmaster Soss

I hope you all enjoyed the last quiz we'll ever have in ignorant bliss. Because by this time next week, we'll know which horrible person is going to be president. But for tonight, we could at least pretend that's way off in the future. At next week's quiz, I imagine we'll all be crying into our beers wishing Raymond Barone could be our president. Actually, this whole thing reminds me of an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where Ray was being schmoozed by both candidates running for his city mayor. It was, of course, hilarious as always. He hated them both, but let them try to woo him… and finally it was too late when he realized he should've done the right thing along time ago. Oh

The Night Raymond's Love Wasn't Good Enough
Quizmaster Soss

A lot of love stories have been told and it seems like you guys have pretty much seen them all. Our round tonight about romance in films turned out to be the favorite. But not everybody was happy about it. I'm referring to myself here. Yes I'm glad Romancing The Stone made an appearance in our quiz finally, but I'm heavily disappointed that my beloved Everybody Loves Raymond didn't get to be a part of the round. The love between Mr and Mrs Raymond is probably the strongest bond we've ever seen on screen and it wasn't fair of us at Geeks Who Drink to ignore that. On behalf of the company, I apologize to quizzers across the nation. It's nice to see Urban Fervor doing

Richard Marx Would Be Canada's Greatest Treasure If He Was Canadian
Quizmaster Soss

I guess all good things eventually have to end. Or more accurately, all good things eventually turn on you and throw your clothes in a lake. But that's another story. What I'm getting at is that I was hoping for a 3-week winning streak tonight, but we couldn't quite get there.Our first place, This Erection Is Rigged, scored a well deserved victory tonight – including hitting the 90 point milestone!Aiming for their third straight gold finish, The Fucklamps finished a handful of points behind with a still very respectable 84 points.Overall, you guys made light of many of tonight's rounds.

The Night The 2nd Place Victor Kept The Spoils
Quizmaster Soss

Allow me to brag for a moment about the greatness and generosity of A Bar Named Sue. I know there are a lot of other quizzes in town, and even just on Tuesday night there are a lot of other Geeks Who Drink quizzes! But, to my knowledge, no other bar in town is gives out as much prize money as we do. It's a total of $100, plus extra schwag and RSL home game tickets and usually I will buy some beer for a lucky team also! Not a bad deal considering it's all free. So I just want to take a quick second to say thank you to Maggie and the crew at A Bar Named Sue for being such great hosts! (Also, as a sidenote, follow

The Night Jay Turned Up
Quizmaster Soss

All I have heard about all weekend long and at work was something about a guy on Netflix named Luke Cage. Given that I have not seen any of it nor do I know anything about it, I'd like to give my review...Whenever a show's name is just the main character's name, I'm already bored (Seinfeld and Hannibal get a pass because they were already famous). Can you imagine if Everybody Loves Raymond was just called Raymond Barone? I just switched the channel in my mind and missed out on nine wonderful seasons of a guy whining about things. Anyway, Luke Cage is probably about a guy who is trapped psychologically or something, hence the name. He's a cop by day but at night he wrestles with

The Night Chemistry Was Cool
Quizmaster Soss

I don't know a whole lot about chemistry because I spent my college years being cool and doing cool things and not studying and that's how I became a quizmaster. But that part's not important, what I'm getting at is what a bunch of nerds you guys are for knowing so much nerd stuff. One of the rounds tonight tasked teams with naming all the elements that start with a C and, for the most part, you guys did a great job. Certainly better than I would have because I thought chemistrium was probably one of the answers. And even though all things indicate it is not, I still choose to believe it is. Also chemicalium exists too. Something happened tonight that doesn't happen very often, so

The Night A Light Was Waiting To Carry You Home
Quizmaster Soss

Holy Katsopolis were the Olsen twins butt-ugly as kids. Our visual round tonight was an exciting exploration of on-screen babies and Michelle Tanner was easily the scariest looking one of them all (and this is going up against a Rugrat, a dinosaur, and a tentacled alien-baby from Men In Black). And while I'd love to use this blog as a platform to rant about how weak minded yet arrogant babies are, it turns out I got more interested in figuring out what is up with the therapy-inducing family dynamic in Full House was. So who the hell was those kids mom?? Was she ever on the show? Did they do a flashback episode showing the three one-night stands Danny Tanner had with truckstop whores

The Night That Was Better Than Sex. I've Heard.
Quizmaster Soss

Tonight's quiz had one singular question about Sister Act. And in the 200 years I have been quizmastering, guess how many questions I've been lucky enough to ask about Sister Act? One! Just the one tonight. Do you know how disappointing this is to us Whoopie Goldberg fans out here?? We were both really excited but also really upset it has taken this long for Geeks Who Drink to recognize the sociological contributions Sister Act has provided humanity. The Sister Act trilogy is arguably the greatest film trilogy in cinematic history. Now, I know the third one has not come out yet, but it will. Hollywood would not be so cruel to leave us hanging. I

The Night We Saved No Drama For Yo Mama
Quizmaster Soss

Who doesn't love some good drama? Well tonight, we had our fair share. And both times it was for quiz-firsts! To begin with, we had a couple teams actually use the same name. Seriously?? Yep, seriously. Over the years, a lot of a lot of teams have inevitably used the same name, but never on the same night. So you can bet I was a little confused after looking through all of the Round One answer sheets and found two teams named Staff Infection. I thought they were trying to screw with me or something. Nope… turns out it was literally just a couple teams both wanted to be Staff Infection. The moment they found out each other had used their name was a minor kerfuffle,

Being Bald Blows
Quizmaster Soss

There are only two types of bald women in this world: badass bald women, and cancer patients. I didn't make this rule, obviously Hollywood did. I'm just an observer. As we learned in the visual round tonight, Natalie Portman and Sigourney Weaver and others can sport the look and become heroine rebels. And of course the dozens of cancer movies prove the other end of the spectrum. But what's in the middle of that spectrum? Nothing! You can't be a normal human female and also be bald. Badass or bad luck.On the other hand, this doesn't apply to men. Yes of course bald Bruce Willis is on the action hero super stud side of things, and Philadelphia AIDS-ridden Tom Hanks

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
