Quiz From Home
Jare Bear

You know, to a certain extent, I understand not taking the surname of your world-famous mother or father to try and break free of their shadow and find a career based around your own talents. To an extent. When you choose the name Mamie Gummer, however…maybe it’s better to just say, “Yes, that Streep.” Enough of that, let’s talk quiz. It was damn intense tonight. Starting at round one and going into round 7, we had a three-way tie for 2nd place. But, “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood” is a movie that separates the quiz men from the quiz boys. And as you

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 (X).

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.

When I read the headlines today, I fully expected everyone to have an O’Reilly-related team name. For some stupid, stupid reason, it didn’t even occur to me that people would be doing takes on Aaron Hernandez. So, with that, I’d like to nominate myself for title of Quizmaster with the least amount of foresight in the entire United States. I’d like to thank the academy in advance. There were other teams that didn’t care for headlines, of course, like our first place winners, Jared’s Jungle Jamboree, which, beyond the alliteration, I really don’t get to be honest. Is it because I look like a monkey? Or because my beard has taken

Your Quiz Is On My List
Jare Bear

I don’t usually have a two-part favorite part of quiz, but I definitely do tonight. We had a team that left in the middle of quiz (probably shouldn’t broadcast that), and then another team that still managed to beat them to last place. However, that team? They were on their first date. And they were so wrapped up in romance and chemistry that they probably didn’t give the score a second thought. It’s enough to bring a tear to a glass eye. And I know that the thing that really brought them together was my amazing quizmaster skills. I'll be seeing you two next week. My other other favorite part? The team that put down “Indian Jones”

Hello...Is It Quiz You're Looking For?
Jare Bear

There were a lot of great moments at tonight’s quiz, as there always are, but what was the best? My vote goes to the team that wrote down the major motion picture “Good Fellows” as an answer on the video round. And judging by their other responses, I’m pretty sure they were completely sincere. In placing news: We had The Pepsi Generation (aka, Not Generation Next) coming in first. Coming in second place with a fast swift motion was Rip Off The Bannon-Aide. And then what can be said about our third place winners….Suck It, Trebek? They certainly won third place. Also, special attention must

Let's Quiz It On
Jare Bear

Really need to clear something up here first and foremost: I asked for the last name of Lyle, the monorail conman from The Simpsons, and someone shouted out, “Hutz!” And I blindly (drunkenly?) accepted it. Hutz is actually the last name of Lionel, the horribly unqualified lawyer/babysitter. Lyle’s last name is Lanley. Monorail! A very exciting night tonight. Winners could have been measured by a hair. What do I mean by that? The top three teams were one point away from each other. And one could say that the top three teams also had the three most clever, best names of recent memory. But I would also take umbrage with that. I would say that there was one team

Baby, You're a Firedork
Jare Bear

The big news tonight was that we had a tie for first place between Chicken Strips Are Good and Pro-Choice But Anti-Tomi Lahren. Who won? Who cares! The tie-breaking question was regarding Neil Gorsuch, which allows me to pontificate on current events. So, the confirmation hearing for Gors is happening now and I’m completely baffled how no one has asked, “What did it feel like when our Man-Child-In-Chief tried to rip your arm out of the socket under the guise of shaking your hand?” Okay, so maybe that’s really all I had to say about current events. To pick things back up, Pro-Choice But Anti-Tomi Lahren

Started Wearing Less and Quizzin' More
Jare Bear

Like most fun nights, this one ended in a huge mess. We had a tie for third place, which I thought would result in a dance-off (pants on). And then we had a tie for first place, which I thought would result in a sudden death question (pants optional). So, for third place, Aloha Felicia! forfeited from the dancing, resulting in me giving the third place prize to Happy Green LITTE PERSON’s Day. And then when it came to the first place sudden death question, that’s the point when I discovered Travel Ban 2: Electric Boogaloo was a seven-person team. So No Daylight Savings. There, I Said One Nice Thing About

You & Me Going Quizzin' In The Dark
Jare Bear

It’s hard to say what the best part of tonight’s quiz was. Wait, no it’s not. It was definitely when one of our quizzers got his belt loop stuck on a pinball machine and required the bartender to come free him with a knife. I mean, it was a good quiz, but that’s hard to beat. Other highlights that involve less schadenfreude? Well, there was that one quizzer that brought cupcakes for everyone. Do we have the best venue or what? As for rankings, Milk Milk Lemonade has chosen to stick with name, but as long as they keep coming in first, it’s hard to argue about it. Just a point behind them was Dwight, You Ignorant

Well When You Walk By Every Night, Quizzin' Sweet And Lookin' Fine...
Jare Bear

I mean…16 teams. Christ on the cross. Is this the most we’ve ever had? In my three plus years of hosting at Ozzie’s, I’m willing to say yes. And guess what? It was fantastic. That’s a new word I made up. It’s a combination of “fantastic” and “I’m being sarcastic.” As you can clearly see over there on the left, The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance (sick Birdman callout) came in first. Buuuuuuuut, they had seven teammates, which means they came in…not-first. So of course, that means that Milk Milk Lemonade got that grand prize money. And, once again, true to their name, they

Dang, You's A Sexy Quiz
Jare Bear

  Tonight’s National Margarita Day raffle was fun and all (to be honest, I really woulda loved that new computer bag), but the best part of tonight was definitely when the team that complained that we never gave away prizes to second-to-last-place was there when we finally did, and then ended up comping in first place! So congrats to Hashtag Prayers For Sweden. And congrats on that team name, too. Other teams whose names matched their quizzical prowess: Universe Proudly Announces Travel Ban On Earthlings, who came second place at just two points behind. And just one point behind them was the atrociously named Milo's

Before They Cheat
Jare Bear

I don’t know how many of you believe in fate, miracles, happenstance, etc. out there. Hell, I don’t know if I believe in it, but after tonight, I was made a believer. Let me tell you why: Just before the quiz I was talking with the members of Smells Like Fried Chicken about how they never place high enough to get the grand prize gift certificates (aka Ozzie’s Bucks). Then, lo and behold…second place. Congrats to them. It should also be noted, because of their team name, they were seated next to the men’s room… In other team name news, a lot of people were getting political, and how could you not these days? But then

You're A Quizzard, Harry!
Jare Bear

If I have one legacy that I want to leave behind, it’s probably being one of those people that is(n’t) remembered for inventing a new phrase. That new phrase? “Fussbub.” It’s a mixture of fuss and hubbub. As in: “What’s all the fussbub about?!” Ah, who am I kidding…that'll probably rank alongside Gloobglorp. Anyway, this is my way of saying: what’s all the fussbub about requiring the full title of a Tales From the Crypt movie??? There’s three of them, guys! And I said “be specific” at least nine times. IN ADDITION: There’s a 1972 movie called “Tale From the Crypt” that

Man, You Know What Really Drives Me Quizzy

You know, maybe the questions are getting too easy. Or maybe I’m just getting to lenient with my scoring. But we had yet another tie in the top three spots tonight! This time it was a second place tie between Hot Sauce and We're Not Pornstars Anymore. But, good fortune smiled upon the former Pornstars, as Hot Sauce had exceeded their six-person limit to eligible for the grand prizes. Coming in first, Reunited & It Feels So Good …to be getting that prize money, I’m sure. And rounding out the top three prize winners, How I Learned To Stop Worrying & Love The

Get Outta My Dreams, And Into My Quiz
Jare Bear

  So, am I disappointed that the video round this week wasn’t just eight different edits of a Nazi getting punched in the face and making quizzers guess what pop song it was synced to? No, not at all. That would be condoning violence, and that would be wrong. Glad we cleared that up. That being said, some teams did great and some teams did less than great! And some teams don’t know the meaning of seven o’clock! But, maybe I don’t the meaning of nine o’clock! And even still…some teams don’t know the difference between Billy Ocean and Bruce Springsteen, which is the most embarrassing thing of

As Carly Simon Told A Heroin Addict: "You're So Vein"
Jare Bear

Tonight’s episode (and yes, I consider every night of quiz an episode in the TV show of my life) could easily be called “The Great Experiment”, for tonight we took the quiz venue upstairs for the first time since being at Ozzie’s. And I like to think, backed by the encouragement of quizzers, that it was a rousing success. On top of that, we had a four-way tie for first place! Insanity! And the tie had to be settled the only way it could be…with a number-answered tie-breaker. Of course, you can only play with Price Is Right rules, but some trick-ass mark is gonna do the Price Is Right shizz and bet a “1.” But hey, it worked for them and Sperpy

You know, some baseball guy once said that ending a game in a tie is like kissing your sister. So, I would say that ending quiz in a tie but with a team that can’t win the gift certificate because they have more than six on their team is ….like kissing your brother?
