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

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.

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
Jare Bear

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

Jare Bear

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? I don’t know, I’m not very good at analogies. But it did happen. Urine A New Era Of Goldwater Republicans, who had 40 players, tied with Milk Milk Lemonade (not a treasonous state leader reference, just a team using the same name and waiting for their moment to shine).

Wake Up In The Morning, Quizzin' Like P. Diddy
Jare Bear

Now, there’s packed houses and then there’s 13-teams-plus-having-to-drag-in-two-extra-tables-packed houses, which is what we had a case of last night. Not only that, but we would’ve had 14 teams if it wasn’t for the kindness of one team who decided to adopt two strangers without a table onto their group. Did they wind up winning first place? Absolutely, but I don’t see how that’s relevant. And with all that talent in the room, is it really any surprise that we ended up with a tie for first place? Yes, Huddle Naked For The Heat! squared off against Undefeated In 2017 but were both stumped by the first sudden

I Know Not Everybody Has Got A Quiz Like You

I find it to be the biggest of coinkydinks that the day after I fly back to Seattle after visiting the Wizard of Oz museum in my hometown in Kansas, we have a round that combines both Oz and Seattle. Me thinks I have a stalker at Geeks Who Drink…So if you’re reading this (and I know you are), I love you too. Let’s do this.

I Dreaming Of A White Quiz-mas (Is That Racist?)
Jare Bear

You know, I feel like I talk every week about how exciting the quiz was, but guess what. I mean it every week!  Tonight we ended up with a first place tie. The two teams faced off in a sudden death question about the table of elements, which they just couldn't nail, despite given numerous (and that's being generous) chances. To be fair, I probably wouldn't have gotten it, either...I only look at that table periodically!  But then one little question about the NFL and the correct answer came in my face within a matter of seconds, securing the first place spot to Baby You're A Firework. We also had another team with eight members who knew

Quizzy Rascal
Jare Bear

 A very exciting and straightforward night of quiz.  Round one had us looking at them double Bs. Round two asked us to live through the trauma of Suicide Squad once again. Round three was all about American Revolutionaries, and just like the real Revolutionary War, it got harder as it went on. We were visited in round four by Krampus, the creepy German anti-Santa. Round five threw some unlikely love to Greg Lake, while round six was about pigs. Round seven and eight....why spoil it? As for the teams...well which one should we talk about, the one making fun of a recently deceased actor or the one making light of child abuse?

In the immortal paraphrased words of Dan Patrick, you cannot stop winter, you can only hope to contain it.
