Lovin', Touchin', Quizin'
Jare Bear

The More We Know: In Germany, Jägermeister was actually invented as a digestif. That’s why they call it “liver glue,” because it’s designed to keep you together for a long night of drinking. That’s quite the opposite from the U.S., where it’s more of a “liver bomb” designed to send you home with the first lecherous character that approaches you at a bar. Best Worst Answers:   +  Depending on the generation you grew up in, you could be forgiven for thinking that “Surfin’ Bird” was originally performed by Peter Griffin.   +

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.

Groove Is In The Heart, Quiz Is In The Brain
Jare Bear

The More We Know:   The Fruit of the Loom logo has four fruits on it: Apples, green grapes, purple grapes, and currants. Though, listing purple and green grapes as two different fruits is kind of a cheat. And when they did the ads with the fruit guys, they had to dress one of them up as “leaves” because no one knows what the fuck a currant is.   Best Worst Answers:   New precedent for Best Worst Answers tonight, they all came from one team (a single guy at the bar) and were all on the same answer sheet. +  “I Want To Believe” +  “Shiner

Youth of the Nathan
Jare Bear

The More We Know: Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes was the first man to visit both North and South Poles by traveling on land and water. Not to mention, he was also the first to cross Antarctica on foot. And if you didn’t feel bad enough about yourself, he also reached the summit of Everest at age 65. And, as we learned in quiz, he got frostbitten fingertips when he drug his sled across the North Pole. He got so tired of the pain, that he hacked off his own fingers with a saw. I don’t know about you, but I’m smelling a sequel to “127 Hours.” “127 Minutes” maybe. And who would be playing Sir Fiennes? Ralph

Quiz On Mars?
Jare Bear

There’s not much I can say about Bowie and his impact on me that hasn’t already been said by a million pop culture writers and social media accounts, so I’ll just find a way to tie it into quiz…   The More We Know: We all know Gates McFadden as the woman who kept Wil Wheaton in line as Dr. Crusher on "Star Trek: The Next Generation", but did you know that she was also the choreographer for the ballroom sequence in the film “Labyrinth”, set to David Bowie’s “As The World Falls Down”? Some people may think this tidbit means nothing, and to them I say, “Nothing?! Nothing, tra-la-la?!”   Best

Breakdown, Go Ahead and Quiz it to Me
Jare Bear

So, I have a tendency to show up to quiz about an hour beforehand and usually when I arrive, Ozzie’s is 95% full. Tonight, there was one team waiting for me. One. Then, as the hour moved on, the venue filled up to max quantity to the point where people had to take seat outside The Thunderdome. I know you guys do it to keep me in suspense, and I appreciate it greatly. It adds a level of drama to my life that was missing otherwise.   The More We Know: Ward Hill Lamon, President Lincoln’s law partner, claimed that he was told by the president about a dream in which he viewed his own body at a white house funeral. Yes, Lamon talked

I Find It Kinda Funny, Find It Kinda Sad, That The Quiz In Which I'm Losing Is The Best I Ever Had
Jare Bear

This is that fun, hazy hangover of a week where we’re all still reeling from Christmas, but prepping for New Year’s. People that never quite got over not having a winter break like they did in school are leaving the office this week in droves. And where are they heading? To quiz. Duh.   The More We Know:   There’s apparently a sport called XARM that’s a cousin to MMA, but you’re chained to a post and one your wrists is bound to your opponent’s. Also, it’s insane. I’m pretty sure we’re one step closer to having full-on gladiator fights featuring tigers and lions. Oh, and apparently

It's a Quizmas Miracle!
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Thanks everyone for coming out tonight for another evening of pub quiz! Congrats Star Wars Spoiler for wining first place! It was a close game with both Star Wars themes teams being neck and neck all game. Tonight we had rounds featuring: Horrible Christmas Parodies, It’s not you It’s me, Censoring Christmas, and Yeah.. Please don’t kiss me under those (a round on missiles and toes). Favorite (wrong) answers go to: Actor from ‘The Postman Always Rings Twice’ = Nicholas Cage, Badass Tom Clancy character being.. Tom Clancy, and Camels having three toes (imagine what that kind of camel toe would look like). We had overall high scoring teams tonight

It Just Takes Some Time/Little Girl, You're In The Middle Of Round Five
Jare Bear

There’s really only one way to describe tonight: Colder than a witch boob. Yet, many teams braved the weather and then braved each other in an epic battle of wits!   Or, they just came into the bar and played some quiz. Either one.   What We Learned Tonight:   Franklin Pierce and Ulysses S. Grant were the only two presidents arrested while in office, and both for traffic violations! Grant was caught speeding in his horse and buggy, while Pierce supposedly ran over a lady with his horse, but the charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence.   Best Worst Answers: -

When I Quiz About You, I Quiz My Quiz
Jare Bear

Let’s just tonight’s favorite team name out of the way: BY THE WINDOOOOOOOOOOOOOW, BY THE WALL!   Thank you.   What a night. I was forced to speak in a “doge” voice, which was utterly humiliating. I was also forced to say “anomalous trichromacy,” which was humiliating for more personal reasons. No worries, though, in the end I think I slurred it perfectly.   Tonight was also a first for Geeks Who Drink at Ozzie’s: we had a three-way third-place tie. Which of course meant a three-way dance-off. But alas, By the Window was too shy to show off their skills,

Q.U.I.Z. in the U.S.A.
Jare Bear

Happy Week After Thanksgiving! If you’re like me, you’re still nursing a turkey and wine hangover. Not from Thanksgiving, per se, but more like from Wednesday’s lunch.   What an interesting night of quiz. We had one team that allowed me to stretch my German pronunciation legs, and what a shitty pair of legs they were. A lot of quizzers learned what a “Fish Mooney” was (I still wish I didn’t know). And we had a team guess “Batman Returns” when the answer was “Batman” two times in the same night! Fish would be so disappointed.   As for fun answers: Confusing Gene and Richard Simmons

50 Shades of Gravy
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I appreciate you coming out and drinking before indulging in more drinking ant eating today. Last night we had a quiz-off when our final two teams came down to a tie! Congrats 50 Shades of Gravy for guessing slightly closer answers than Clitty Titty Gang Bang. Honorable mention goes to the Human Turducken for holding down 3rd. Last night we celebrated rounds such as “It Came From the Last Week of November,”  “All Aboard the Gravy Train,” AND “Yo dawg, I heard you like birds, so I put a bird in your bird, so you can ear birds while you eat birds.” Though my favorite round was probably “Have a Holly

Quiz Fever
Jare Bear

Have we ever had a night with so many great team names? I mean, just take a look to your left and tell me that the hits don’t just keep coming. Puns, current events, rip-offs…we’ve got it all. And we even have a team that knew they couldn’t compete, so they just went with (Clever Name). Great work all around.   And then there’s one team from tonight that I won’t even mention by name because they deprived us all of a dance off. The lights were going, I had James Brown’s “Mother Popcorn” all cued up, and then…forfeit. A bunch of cowards. Or maybe they were a group of adults that realized quiz

She Said She'd Always Been A Quizzer
Jare Bear

The minute that I started grading tonight’s visual round, I knew there was really only one way to do this week’s blog and that’s showcasing all the names that people wrote down for The Wet Bandits: Harry & Sid Marty & Harry Merv & Vinnie Marvin & Dale Larry & Marv (fake points for being one letter off) Marty & Henry     Amazing. I guess I’m working under the assumption that everyone won the Pepsi mail-in contest in 1991 and watched their Home Alone VHS tape until it was physically impossible to.   In other quiz

And I will be the one to hold Larry Csonka down/Quiz him so hard
Jare Bear

It would seem that my charisma knows no bounds. Fourteen teams tonight and one so huge and demanding that they had to move an entire table into the Karaoke Thunderdome just to accommodate them. And yes, it can all be attributed to my winning personality and the low seductive voice I use to ask questions.   Or because daylight saving time has pushed everyone to find an activity involving drinking indoors. Could be either one, really.   Is it a coincidence that tonight’s first place team, Metrojet Is Da Bomb, had a current events name that seemed to confuse everyone else? Probably not. Speaking of confusing everyone, 37911643

Hold The Line, Quiz Isn't Always On Time
Jare Bear

After many months of just giving out gift certificates for brainpower, we finally, finally had two teams enter the arena and earn money with their bodies, the way God intended. Yes, it was good ol’ fashioned Dance-Off. The representative from Team danced her little heart out and really went for it at the end by busting out The Elaine. But in the end, the man from Moist won over the crowd with his strange hypnotic gyrations.   And then taking the top spot was Serial Butt Touchers. The team from Ballard who are proud of their salacious ways. They proved their knowledge on all sorts of things from baby Hitler

Every Quiz You Take, I'll Be Mocking You
Jare Bear

 Chris Hemsworth, AKA Thunderbae, came up in a question tonight about People magazine’s annual Sexiest Man Alive issue. And it brought up a really good point: Do you think that he ever takes off his pants when he’s with a woman and says, “So what d’ya think of Thor’s hammer?” The woman being his wife of six years of course.   A damn fine quiz tonight if I do say so my damn self. Marty McSuperfly came out on top not only in points, but in “Back to the Future” team names as well. New York Doesn’t Even Have A Space Needle came closely behind as you could hear their hearts breaking over the game. And
