You're Out of Your Element Donny Osmond!
QuizGentleman Bryton

I love when we get local ties during the quiz. The round on Donny Osmond was a nice touch, making us all picture his dark hair and giant teeth, along with a few gimme questions.    As we begin to wind-down 2016 we can all agree that a lot of good celebrities died. But plenty of bad celebrities didn't die so we can at least celebrate that at least eh eh eh?   Check out Bakersfield Food Riot (coming soon!) who only missed first place by two points while playing solo. That's a Jeopardy champion for you right there. Mr. Jiggledaddy and told me a horrifying story about the Pope. Brosie O'Donnell

Crucible
QuizGentleman Bryton

I went to Salem, Mass. once. Woulda been 1999 I reckon. Had a museum with these freaky mannequins of all those Crucible characters. I don't remember too much about the Crucible but I think I had to read it in school about twenty years ago. Metaphor for communism ya see! Maybe there's someone named Goodwyfe? Anyway that museum was way weird. But good job to the two teams that got the Crucible in Round 7. I've said it before and I'll say it again: when you only miss four questions, you have a really good shot of winning the quiz. The Guesstapo stacked the deck this time and walked out with 90 points (missing two questions on a joker round hurts double!) Grizzly

Broke it, or made it better?
QuizGentleman Bryton

After last night's quiz I witnessed a horrible Utah Jazz loss against my hated Chicago Bulls. They kept falling behind and inching closer only to fall behind again. Going into the fourth quarter I looked at the score and thought "I hope the Jazz haven't used their Joker yet." Then I remembered that circling the joker doesn't apply to real life.   At least the crew at Lumpy's Downtown put on a more exciting competition than the Jazz did. Who Dat? trounced the Guesstapo by a mere point, proving the importance of good joker strategy. Worst Place 6th Place couldn't quite make it into the money and Eff the Music Round

No respect I tell ya!
QuizGentleman Bryton

I'm writing this in defeat after trying to buy the new NES Classic from Amazon. There will be no Christmas this year, children!  Luckily last night gave us some winners, as the Guesstapo fended off We Voted for Harambe who narrowly beat (Rodney Dangerfield Voice) We're All Getting Laid. It was a fun not, lots of energy from the non-quizzers and the decibels were high everyone was polite and the vibe in the basement of Lumpy's was harmonious. Plus we all learned the origin of the term limelight. Also, Round 8 destroyed everyone, with a high score of 9! Wow. Oops! Not a good night for random knowledge.    See

Silhouettes in the Darkness
QuizGentleman Bryton

For one brief, shining moment, Not Omar, But That Is My Lint Trap, Sir! Was not in last place. I'm not trying to roast them, just trying to highlight that Cinderella stories really can happen. I like this team because every week their team name is a reference to an inside joke they share only with themselves.  Guesstapo Lite took out the Write-Ins, but second place for any write-in candidate is really impressive. Worst Case 4th Place did not live up to their name, which for once is a good thing. See you next week, maybe I'll remember to bring a lamp!

Slimer 4 Ever
QuizGentleman Bryton

That was a fun night! It was very, uh... phallic, from the team names to the questions. More than that, we figured out Slimer's true identity (which I'm keeping secret for now) and Pete the Owl dude won a Cosmopolitan, which had to be improvised, so I guess we invented the Lumpypolitan?  Guesstapo won, over I've Got a Raging Election, and the thematically similar Priapism of the West took third. M & M, come back next week at 7pm and bring some friends! To all of you, avoid destroying angels and autumn skull caps. See you soon!

Gotta Nuke Somethin'
QuizGentleman Bryton

Pay no attention to the quizmaster behind the curtain! Besides that's DJ Quizmaster to you. From now on it's all Sandstorm all the time at Lumpy's Downtown, since I've got that giant iron throne thing now.  Another week another tie. Guesstapo wrapped up third place but Space Juice came from the cosmos to beat No Puppet, No Puppet, You're the Puppet. Fun night! Had a couple teams that hadn't been to Lumpy's since like four hosts ago. That's like me saying "Oh it's been a while since I've watched the tonight show. I think Jack Paar was hosting?    Anyway, guess that's it for this week! See you

Tron DJ
QuizGentleman Bryton

We never quite know what to expect at Lumpy's Downtown do we? Hot crowd tonight with some of the city's finest competitors. More importantly, I got this new setup that's like some sort of steampunk rave DJ booth. Maybe next week I'll wear a wooden and copper Daft Punk helmet.  The Guesstapo and Crack Suicide Squad went head to head most of the night, ending up in a tie (PS there was some controversy over this but I double checked and it's all good!). Guesstapo pulled ahead in the five question tiebreaker round proving that they're the best team in Salt Lake! Just kidding it proves absolutely nothing.    Pussies

Pete the Owl is not a guy on Twitter
QuizGentleman Bryton

Hello everybody! So glad we could keep each other's company this fine evening. And that we all learned how to say "proliferation" together. I usually don't have trouble with pronunciation but that one really killed me.  The Guesstapo brought several of their rotating cast members and eeked out a one point win, over Florida Blows, who bested Fictional Buttholes by just one point.    I don't want to google it, but are there any well known fictional buttholes? All I can think of is the judge from Pink Floyd's the Wall. Maybe we don't want to go down that road though.    See

Proust, anyone?
QuizGentleman Bryton

Ended up with a rowdy crowd at Lumpy's didn't we? That always makes for a good time. Not a lot of english majors in the house, but we did have some urologists, I'm assuming. Priapism is no joke, so if you learned nothing else, go to the emergency room if... you know.  Nice to meet the crew from Fanzz. All told I have nine Bees hats, if my Gulls hat counts as a Bees hat. I'm counting it. I don't know how many times people see the SL on my hat and ask me if I'm from St Louis. Even here in Salt Lake. It bums me out man!   Congrats to Bumfuzzlers on the win in their return to Lumpy's. Pre Death Slimer took third but

Quadruple B
QuizGentleman Bryton

Weird how time flies and goes by slowly at the same time. I'm reminded of this by Brittany Badger's Birthday Bonanza, who are not only celebrating the birthday but their one year quizziversary. Isn't that nice? But the thing is, I thought they'd been playing way longer. But the other thing is, it's been a year already? I guess some questions are unanswerable.  Speaking of birthdays, happy birthday to Sione of the Guesstapo. Nice victory, with Death by Misadventure right on your heels, and right on their heels was Clintons Killed Harambe, and right on their heels was Eff the Music Round.    I

Who missed seeing me at Lumpys? I sure did. It's been a long time, but I was so glad that I could come in and visit Lumpys again! We had quite a crowd today with makes me believe that I must be much cooler than Bryton.  We started out strong with a lot of nearly full points in our round 1. Then we proved just how little everyone knows TV during our round three on Emmy-nominated shows.  I want to give a huge shoutout to The Beer for loosing so beautifully. You guys were consistently on the bottom and incredibly proud of it. At least you weren't Eff the Music Round who oddly rocked the music round but unfortunately did

QuizGentleman Bryton

There has been an awakening, have you felt it? The fall. It is here. I love autumn, and it's been a lovely Thursday night outside which makes me want to enjoy the cozy confines of Lumpy's Downtown. Great time in the basement, but for pete's sake y'all gotta invite your friends, neighbors, family, lovers, enemy. We're really kicking ass downstairs but we need more competitors to put a stop to Tim Commander (The Brofessor) and Sione (ITT Tech Graduate) and Bemo's reign of terror. Thanks to JAM for giving it a shot tonight! I didn't talk to you too much because you were engrossed in the Branko's game, but thanks for playing and

and the skies opened up
QuizGentleman Bryton

What a night in Salt Lake City! There was a heckuva lot going on, Comic Con, Twilight Concert, the Utes "game," (wasn't much of a game eh?) plus apocalyptic weather outside. I'm thrilled about those of you that joined us at Lumpy's and hope you had a good time! I sure did.    Eff the Music Round was named accurately. No one liked the music round. At least not based on your scores. But hey! You did well on Random Knowledge and that's usually the hardest one! Good job.    Somehow I Wish This Microphone Was a Giant Horse Cock managed to finish in 5th place, even though there were only four teams.

Oh, it's prison themed!
QuizGentleman Bryton

On a typical quiz the highest score possible is 96. Every venue and every quiz is different but from my experience, put yourself in the high 70s and you have a good shot at winning. Miss only six questions on the whole quiz? Well that's something to write home about. Except for tonight, when What's Your Poo Telling You? missed six and and finished in third! Surely the team that only missed four questions won, right? The old strangers We Missed You, Bryton. Nope, second. The Guesstapo missed but two questions the whole night. Frankly, that is insane. They were due though, since for weeks they've been playing against each other. Yes it was a

Why does no one want my off-brand cinnammon whiskey?
QuizGentleman Bryton

So we don't care for tv theme covers eh? That was a rough one. Rough on me that is. I thought the metal version of the Stranger Things theme was pretty clear, but then when I said it was Stranger Things I was met with silence. Why you haven't you watched that show? I know some of you can afford Netflix with all the money your saving by winning at quiz. Come on now.    Avuncular Vegans! Hope you enjoyed your first time. Congrats on placing third and I hope to see you back soon. Dicks Out For Harambe had an awesome Round 8 for a big surge at the end, but couldn't compete with I'll Tell You Something, Brother!!!
