I Mustache You A Question
JaredDuncan

So everyone seems to remember “Major Payne”, but Damon Wayans’ other ‘90s vehicle that too often gets overlooked is “Blankman”. It’s hilarious, has its own kick-ass theme song, and gave the legendary Damon Wayans Jr. his first role.   Why bring it up? Well, other than making sure it gets the recognition it deserves, we had a man playing tonight known as The Lone Quizzer. That is until the middle of the quiz when he was joined by a teammate. And even though the teammate didn’t have a Michigan sweater or a fedora, he reminded me of Blankman’s partner and brother, Other Guy (masterfully portrayed by David

Not so long ago, I was on a team playing quiz and we ruled the school. My personal areas of expertise were both audio rounds, anything involving movies, and American history. One night, I was the only guy in the bar who knew the name of the current prime minister of England.

We placed first almost every week. So often that it became stale and I needed a new challenge. So instead of angering fellow geeks by besting them, I decided I would anger them by doing the asking. So I became a quizmaster and I've been pissing them off ever since.

She's Always A Quizzer To Me
JaredDuncan

Welp, a new precedent has been set tonight. We have a team that bought me a shot with their winnings, let me sing “Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves” at karaoke, and then gave me a ride home. So I guess what I’m trying to say is congratulations to next week’s first place winners, Butt Dialing Is The Only Ass I Get!   (I’m kidding. Calm down)   We had two super teams join up to form a MEGA TEAM and it paid off big time as Sparklemotion took home the number one prize. And in second place, a team whose name I dare not repeat here. Deep down, I’m sure that they were making a reference to

You Make Me Feel Like I'm Quzzing a Teenage Dream
JaredDuncan

You know what? I’m not going to fault a team for forfeiting the dance-off for third place. It’s debasing, shameless, and most of the 9-5ers that play don’t have time for it. So, no I won’t name names here. I won’t call out the two teams that tied for third until one forfeited and lost, both of which are listed in the standing directly to the left of this paragraph. No, that kind of thing would be beneath this blog. Plus, that team clearly won in the team name department, so it slides.   Another interesting twist: This week’s Bob Loblaw’s Law Blog is not the same team as last week’s Bob Loblaw’s

Comfortably Dumb
JaredDuncan

Three words to describe tonight: Aussies, Ozzys, and Ozzie’s. Get it? Me neither. But there were a couple of questions about Australians tonight, which is good enough for me. It also puts me in the mind of this guy I met abroad. His name was Wayne and he always DJ’d at the local club. And he always put on “Place Your Hands” by Reef. Not a dance song…not even a good song. But, man, how Wayne loved it. And his enthusiasm was contagious enough to make it enjoyable for the two-point-seven minutes it lasted each weekend.     Where was I? Ah, quiz. Cosby Colada came out on top tonight (phrasing…)

Confetty Wap
JaredDuncan

I think one of my favorite things about Forbes Top 15 Fictional List is that they don’t discriminate against different species. Ducks, dragons, Ashton Kutcher characters, they all make the list. The real Forbes 500 could learn a thing or 500 from that list.   And tonight’s quizzers could learn a lot from their genius quizmaster. Like how not to shout out answers while I’m reading the question. But I won’t hold it against Mika & Her Minions, they’re new. And like a child that touches a hot stove, they’ll get burned and they will learn.   Cheese Toastie confused me, Bob

Live Every Week Like It's Shark Week
JaredDuncan

Did The Rural Jurors inspire me to consider making this whole blog just 30 Rock jokes? They sure did, but then I realized it might be a little out of context and lazy. But I'm still going to start every quiz with, "Listen up, Fives. A Ten is speaking."     On a different note, THIRTEEN DAMN TEAMS! I know that's small potatoes for some venues, but for us, it's slightly bigger potatoes. And at the top of that pile of potatoes was #WhitePeopleWithOneTokenBlackDude. And, yes, it did kill me to read a hashtag name every time I announced scores. Below that, there was Amelia Bedelia Throws A Baby Shower,

All The Women Who Quiz-Dependant
JaredDuncan

Another night, another tie, another dance off. And by “another,” I mean maybe the best one you’ve ever seen. The representative from Donald Trump’s Day Workers was gyrating like a Sherwin-Williams paint shaker and even incorporated her opponent from I Believe In Unicorns & 50 Cent Getting Back On His Feet. In the end, those moves led her team to the grand prize, AKA…..Ozzie’s Bucks. I’m making it happen. #ozziesbucks   On top of that, the other highlight of the night was when one team referred to Stevie Nicks’ “Edge of Seventeen” as “The One-Winged Dove”. Thank

Don't Stop Quizzin'
JaredDuncan

Well, it was a damn fine night of quiz if I do say so my damn self. I’d Rather Be At San Diego Comic Con managed to squeeze out a first place victory by one point, overtaking Divine Interception, who was having an inter-team squabble about having to write down Billy Joel when the answer was “clearly Elton John!”     Beyond that, Glory Glory Hole-lellujah came in third in the quiz, but first in team name creativity. Not to be out-done, though, we had strong showings from The Geico Plane Gives Off Chemtrails (we’ve all suspected it), It’s A Von Trapp!,

Hairy Palmer and the Cursed Quiz
JaredDuncan

Holy. Fucking. Shit. What a night. I had an innumerable amount of coworkers from Dolce Vita Footwear joining in on the fun tonight. I’ll go ahead and let their clever team name inform you of where they ended up. All other teams did an amazing job. And naturally, 50 States of Gay takes home the best team name trophy. Sure, we’ve had the privilege in Washington for three years, but now it’s a nation-wide undeniable right, as it should be.     Speaking of Washington, second place trophy for best team name goes to those guys talking about Marshawn Lynch’s doorbell. I’ve never been to Mr. Lynch’s house, but I’m

Everybody Wants to Quiz the World
JaredDuncan

So, the song "Summertime" was performed by a young man whose real name is Will Smith and who later went by that name in his rap career. However, the song is credited to performers DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. Was I a dick for not accepting Will Smith as an answer on that song? Absolutely. Is them the brakes? Abso-fuckin-lutely.     Despite that, we have a nice little night of quiz. Prolapse By Proxy and Round Bottoms battled it out all night for third place, with RBs taking that spot. But, they also had seven on their team, which means they had to relinquish their gift certificate

Don't Quiz on the Electric Fence
JaredDuncan

Hey, remember that show "Bands Reunited" on VH1? Only it was with a bunch of groups that no one cared about? Well, last night was sort of like that, only with quizzers. Quizzers that are slightly more important than A Flock of Seagulls.   The lovely and wonderful Hail To The Trump made their fateful return, holding their own against Two Californians Walk Into A Seattle Bar (Go Giants), who hail from Davis, my old stomping grounds.    However, neither one was any match for the cleverly named Don't Quiz On The Electric Fence and the rudely named Get The Fuck Outta Here

Quiz From a Rose
JaredDuncan

The More We Know: One team was not aware that the G-spot and clitoris were separate things. So for others, consider this a PSA. Scientologists sign billion-year contracts. Sounds totally reasonable. NHL's westernmost franchise is the Canucks. Their easternmost is the Canadiens. Not too creative with those names. Best Worst Answers: One team put down "The D" for vitamin D. And yes, I totally took "The D." "Who's Harry Crumb?" was definitely not the right answer, but you get props for the reference. And it was still a better guess than saying Steve Martin was

What Doesn't Kill You Make You Quizzer
JaredDuncan

Quite a round of quiz this week. The arena was a little crowded when we started, but once we did, outlier teams pounced on open tables. This included an older couple who were a lot of fun. I can’t remember the last time I cursed so much in front of senior citizens.   And my favorite part of the night? Me scrambling around to turn off the three TVs playing The Stanley Cup just before asking which two teams were playing. And then noticing the nine other TVs playing it at the bar.   I’m gonna go clean the vomit off my shoes. Have a nice week.

The sun was out in full effect today, friends. Were the guns out? Not yet. I still need a few more laundry/gym sessions before that happens. What’s that you say? 2009 references are faux pas? Well, listen, I just turned 30. I’m only now catching up. Cut me some slack. Or talk to the hand. People still say that, right?

Quizzers With Attitude
JaredDuncan

It’s fitting that we had round tonight on David Letterman’s final show, as I’ve always compared myself to him in my quizmaster duties. The subtle disdain for the guests, the jokes that often don’t land, sleeping with my interns…I could go on and on. But instead why don’t we move on to tonight’s top ten: The More We Know: Pierre, the state capital of South Dakota, is actually pronounced with just one syllable. Jury’s still out on Montpellier.

When I Get That Feeling, I Need Quizzical Healing

I’m going to paint an unflattering picture here, so bear with me. Quizzers are like earthworms. The moment the rain starts up, they come up out of the filth and dirt to bathe themselves in useless questions. I guess that’s where the similarities end, really…Oh my God. Can you imagine how embarrassed I would be if actual earthworms came in to play one night? I’m bookmarking this just in case. The More We Know: Jon Hamm has yet to win an Emmy.
