Quiz This Town
Jare Bear

The More I Know: Tonight’s quizzers included a duo that went by Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Being the smart-ass that I am, I approached their table asking, “Which one’s Bill and which one’s Ted?” The team was quick to point out that four of the eight answers in round one were actually historical figures that appeared in the classic 1989 film. On top of that, another one of the round one answers was the U.S. president while the movie was being made. Advantage: this team.   Best Worst Answers:   +  To

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.

Later On, On The Drive Home, I Quizzed Her Mom From A Pay Phone
Jare Bear

In the immortal paraphrased words of Dan Patrick, you cannot stop spring, you can only hope to contain it. With five 80-degree days in a row and new Seattle record for April, it looks like it’s finally here. Which would explain why quiz was off to a slow start tonight, but soon enough, the masses were packed in and had more questions lobbed at them than a pervert on “Law & Order: SVU”.   One of those teams was the aptly named It’s Too Late! who tried to play catch up by writing down Adele for every single answer in round two, giving them exactly one point. But they blew me away by scoring a perfect eight points on the next round.

Suckin' On Chili Dog, Outside of Ozzie's...
Jare Bear

Another packed house for Geeks Who Drink at Ozzie’s last night. And seemingly packed by teams that all knew each other. It was all fun and games until one of those teams, Biggie Molls & The Mollettes, ruthlessly took second place. And that silver win did nothing to quell my fears that everyone listening would think that I was saying “Biggie MALLS.”   Best Worst Answers: +   When you can’t come up with the name of a hand-clappy song, “He Gave Me the Clap” will always suffice.   +  So many people thought that one of the secret lesbians from the movie

What's With These Homies Dissing My Quiz?
Jare Bear

The More We Know: The first draft of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” had a chapter called Willy Wonka’s Fudge Mountain. But after Roald Dahl’s nephew said it was no good and he decided that having something called a “Fudge Mountain” wasn’t the best idea for a children’s book, the whole thing was scrapped. Bonus fact: The mountain was actually made of vanilla fudge, which is clue #67 that Dahl was totally into the psychedelic scene.     Best Worst Answers:   +  I shouldn’t have to tell you this but the big thing in the middle of

Nothing To Quiz Or Die For
Jare Bear

The More We Know:   So the story goes: Merv Griffin was talking to his wife about a new game show in 1963. Because of the scandals of the game shows of the 1950s (see Robert Redford’s “Quiz Show”), he was having trouble inventing a knowledge-based show. Then Mrs. Griffin chimed in, “Why don’t you just give them the answers? Make them come up with the questions?” And thus, on March 30, 1964, “Jeopardy!” was born with host Art Fleming. Finding him not mustachioed enough, he was replaced by Alex Trebek in 1984.   Best Worst Answers:   +  One team

Mama Told Me (Not to Quiz)
Jare Bear

When’s the last time we had a first place tie-breaker? Hell if I can remember. If I made anyone uncomfortable with my excitement tonight, I apologize.   The More We Know: Domino’s has developed a robot that can use GPS, overcome obstacles, and travel 12 miles per hour to deliver pizza in Australia. It’s really not that exciting until you consider the porn possibilities…   Best Worst Answers:   I don’t know about you, but when I think of Christian hair metal groups, Metallica, the hairiest and Christianiest of all bands, is the first to come to

What I Need Is A Good Defense, Cause I'm Feeling Like A Quizzical
Jare Bear

The More We Know:   Let’s get something straight: Mario was introduced by the Nintendo Corporation in 1981 in the game “Donkey Kong”. He wasn't named Mario until "Donkey Kong Jr." about a year later. Then his brother, Luigi, was introduced in “Mario Bros.” in 1983. And they rose to worldwide fame in 1985 with “Super Mario Brothers”. That’s right, thirty years….it’s not so old…is it?   Best Worst Answers: +  Out of all the saints in round 5, only one team had the balls to put down “St. John,” the brave man who gave us his magical wart.

Got A Beep From Kim And She Can Quiz All Night
Jare Bear

Well, I’ve got good news: The gyro explosion up north resulted in no casualties and only minor injuries. Which means all of this week’s insensitive team names are totally kosher, you guys!   The More We Know: In the "Super Mario" series, the flying fish are known as Cheep Cheeps. Well, in America, at least. In their native Japan, they are named Pukupuku, which is a Japanese onomatopoeia of giving off bubbles while rising or sinking underwater. In addition, these were the first generic Mario villains to be entirely female. Ah, progress and lazy names.   Best Worst Answers: +

Got To Find A Reason Why My Points Are All Gone
Jare Bear

The More We Know: There’s a piece of a small county in Oregon that does most of their business with neighboring Idaho, and because that part of Idaho is on Mountain Time, therefore, so is that little piece of Oregon. That county is called Malheur and will probably never come up on a quiz again, so enjoy!   Best Worst Answers: +  Multiple teams confused Luke Bryan for Blake Shelton on the audio round. It’s so bizarre…almost like all modern country is monotonous and sounds the same.   +  In round 8, I asked which two dinosaurs won album of the year Grammys for their

Sometimes Wish I'd Never Been Quizzed At All
Jare Bear

It’s officially that magic time of year again when the sun is still shining by the time I get to quiz. Then the sun goes down, the strobe lights come up, and one team refuses to take place in a tie-breaking dance-off because of something called “dignity.” Harrumph.   The More We Know:   Lego is rolling out new minifigures this year that include a stay-at-home dad and wheelchair-bound kid. No word yet on if I’ll buy them and recreate the movie “Mr. Mom” in my bedroom.   Best Worst Answers: +  Yeah, saxophone covers can be hard to place, but confusing

It's Too Late To Apologize
Jare Bear

Hot take: One of tonight’s questions said that Jack (the beanstalk one) killed an innocent giant. I talked to my sister about this question and she takes offense to the idea that the giant was innocent, because he wanted to kill Jack. Let’s be clear here – Jack broke into the giant’s house, stole his shit, and then killed him when he tried to get it back. And the giant was justified enough killing Jack after he broke and entered, but he was also going to use Jack’s bones to make bread. If a chicken broke into your place and tried to burgle you, and then you chopped off his head and made Buffalo wings, no one would bat an eye. Well, they might be a little freaked

Cat Videos and Chill
Quiz Mistress Zoe

Tonight was an interesting night to say the least. We had a lot of large teams and we filled the entire space tonight! Like, overflowing into other parts of the bar. We had a team of teachers who were definitely celebrating getting 5 consecutive days off. I even got to see a pencil drop (ref: mic drop). Plus one of them even had the periodic table of elements tattooed on her arm. Talk about a badass teacher. I think the highlights of tonights answers include: From the visual round: Betty Davis (Zsa Zsa Gabor), Russian Daniel Craig (Kirk Douglas), MC Hammer/Method Man (Suge Knight), Sean Connery/Cary Grant (Hugh Hefner), and Bill Gates/Andy Dick (Jerry Lewis).

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.   +

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”?
