Great than or equal to love
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: We were graced with the recurring presence of Werewolves Not Swearwolves this week, and they once again lived up to the high likelihood of taking the first place spot. How do they always seem to do it, you ask? Well, it helps when you joker a perfect music round, especially when it consists of shitty flute covers.   Best/worst team name of the week: I got a real kick out of Live, Laugh, Drugs, who paint a more realistic view of a quick path to a (temporarily) fulfilling life.   Worst guess of the week: Judge Dredd is not the same

Sabrina Hussein Obama
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: If you know your way around Kelly Clarkson songs, you’ll be set up for success, as was the case with A Team Named Slickback this week.   Best team name of the week: They’ve been coming to quiz for years, but this marks one of their first appearances since I started recognizing weekly team names, and I have to use this opportunity to highlight Not Great, Bob!, who have committed to regular team name that references one of my favorite Mad Men moments.   Best/worst guess of the week: Sabrina

I'm not drunk, just "alt-sober"
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: After taking a few weeks off, Werewolves Not Swearwolves returned after realizing how much they missed me. I missed them too.   Best team name of the week: The Wily Chineses’ inclusion of Based on the novel Push by Sapphire as part of their team name makes as every bit of sense as the title of the movie that they pulled it from.   Best/worst guess of the week: A lot of people thought that The Iron Giant was actually The Neverending Story, which (to borrow from an already-outdated expression) I

We're not going to talk about that (but we are going to make thiny-veiled references)
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: Based on their performance in the first few rounds, there was a 70% chance that A Team Named Slickback was going to win. And they did! They even had more points and everything.   Best/worst team name of the week: I honestly don’t quite know what to make of The team that helps you poop…Actrivia. It seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator in terms to supporters, but we can’t count those supporters out.   Best/worst guess of the week: You think Jesse Jackson and MLK sound the same? That’s racist, man. What’s

Seahawks vs. Bills, Hillary vs. Trump, me vs. the world
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: The lone, solo version of A Team Named Slickback, who managed to destroy a group of opponents that mostly consisted of folks who were there to watch Monday Night Football and suddenly got roped into this whole pub quiz thing.   Best team name of the week: What else would it be other than The penny whistle solo from My Heart Will Go On?   Best/worst guess of the week (of lack thereof): I didn’t expect anyone to know all the countries along the Niger River, but I was I wrong to assume that everyone would at least guess

Hallowersary
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: Could it be? It is! David S. Pumpkins (any questions?)!   Best team name of the week: Easily David S. Pumpkins (any questions?).   Homework from this week’s quiz: Educate yourself and go watch the David Pumpkins video. Seriously, is the best thing SNL has done all season and maybe even in the last few years. It’s a sensation that I’m thrilled to have been swept up by.   In other news, seasoned regulars Dr. Spaceman celebrated their five year anniversary of quizzing

Not Tim Allen's best work
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: Not only did A Team Named Slickback take the top spot this week, but they finally broke their trend of abstaining from the free beer bonus question after one or two difficult questions prompted them to (with my permission) shout the answer from the back of the bar.   Best team name of the week: Congratulations to a third place ranking and a successful summer camp trip to We Prayed the Gay Away.   Best/worst guess of the week: It makes perfect sense to think that Toy Story won an Oscar, but Toy Story 2? Really?   Homework

Look at These Photographs... For Reals, Though, They Are off to Your Left
WhitneyWhitworth

Quizzards and Quizettes- I was so happy that I got to sub for Ivan last night while he was off Larping. Actually, I have no idea what he was doing. Maybe studying for a final, maybe getting married, maybe collecting on a gambling debt. Who knows! I guess you will have to check in with Ivan next week to find out. I really had a great time. Many of you, I’ve hosted for before or seen in some capacity. That was pretty cool. I even met Mia, who, through some weird divine past, knew my brother from ages ago. The story gets weirder, but that’s for another day. Let’s just say, a dog and a town named Dillon really tied the whole night together. Oh, and Nickleback. But when

Faces, new and familiar
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: Once again, Werewolves Not Swearwolves let out their signature howl at the end of the evening, emerging with a narrow victory over fellow veterans Dr. Spaceman and The Wilken Boneses.   Best/worst team name of the week: “Oh, I’m so glad that there aren’t any teams referencing Trump or anything about grabbing – wait. Fuck.”   Best/worst guess of the week: Some people thought that Nickelodeon’s green slime debuted on All That. Some people are apparently calling themselves “90s

I Need The Deed
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: This time Werewolves Not Swearwolves were a six-person team, so as soon as they started off with a streak of perfect and near-perfect rounds during the first of the quiz, the writing was already on the wall.   Worst team name of the week: You can certainly do worse than Apple’s New CEO: Boob Jobs, but not a lot worse.   Best/worst guess of the week: This wasn’t a guess per se, but a certain team that make a habit of writing the round themes on top of their answer sheets heard the first round as being title “I Need The Deed”

There was a debate on TV tonight, but we're not going to talk about that
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: It’s looking like A Team Named Slickback keeps winning first place just by virtue of being the first team to show up. Remember: early is on time, on time is late, and late is unacceptable. Words to live by.   Best/worst team name of the week: I’m not sure this even qualifies, but on team tonight literally just drew a picture of a dead giraffe as their team name. So there’s that.   Best/worst guess of the week: I’m not as taken aback by the suggestion of Bob Saget being one of the most highly paid actors in TV history

Durex Gon' Give It To Ya
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: When Werewolves Not Swearwolves take first place, they take it with vigor and purpose. This week? A three-point lead. Next week? A thirty-point lead. After that? World domination.   Best team name of the week: According to No Longer Afraid of Virginia Woolf, they selected that team name before a question that that exact phrase popped up in the first round of the evening.   Best/worst guess of the week: We had an entire round on vaginal products, so if we got started, we could be here forever.   Homework from this

Cutting it close
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: Once again, A Team Named Slickback reigned supreme, but hey – if it makes you feel better, my own team beat them at a different GWD quiz last Tuesday. That doesn’t make you feel better? What’s the matter with you? Why can’t you be happy for me?   Best/worst team name of the week: I was honestly confused as to whether We Want ‘Bama was a reference to the President or to that football team in the south that rolls their tides or something like that.   Best guess of the week: How many cunnilingus-related movie puns were people able

Belabor the point
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: It’s a Team Named Slickback. Let’s move on.   Best/worst team name of the week: So The Grand Order of the Warlock Union, Headed by Gandalf the Great would have been an awesome team name were it not for the fact that Gandalf never went by that title. Educate yourselves!   Best/worst guess of the week: Honestly, I don’t know what Greenland is famous for. Barely-spoken languages? That one scene in Walter Mitty that confirmed that people actually live there? At any rate, I’m certain that geometry isn’t their

"I prefer the version with Johnny Depp" - Donald Trump (probably)
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: The one and only (and I mean that in the sense that I hope they are the one and only team that goes by this name) Touched by an Uncle.   Best/worst team name of the week: I have to give it up to Rob Lowe Me…they got me. Either they’re clever or I’m just an idiot, but the truth is probably somewhere in between.   Best guess of the week: Multiple teams guessed Galaxy Quest in place of Dude, Where’s My Car, which is either an insult to the former or a compliment to the latter. Again,

A long time ago, in a Dreamworks film far far away...
Ivan the Adequate

This week’s winners: America’s Idiot Sea Cows, who win the gold medal in both points and also…   Best/worst team name of the week. Because they were by and far the best Ryan Lochte reference of the week.   Best/worst guess of the week: When “Far Far Away” clearly references Shrek but it’s been too long since you’ve seen those movies, I suppose you might be compelled to guess Star Wars.   Homework from this week’s quiz: Watch Bur-Hur. No, of course not the new one.   Until
