An Ode To RHT Quizzing
Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

Good Evening Quizzers, In an ode to you, I present, ‘Royal Hilltop Quizzing: A Poem” (don’t worry, it’s one of those poems that doesn’t rhyme, I can’t do that) The beautiful and ‘beautiful’ world of pub quiz is on display tonight Some round went great Some rounds were a fight I hope tonight didn’t end with…hate (I guess this is rhyming) Rage Against the Vending Machine were the big winners again Disco Jelly and Steve Seagal’s Sex Tape Bloopers were there to compete Ultimately, you all don’t know how

Presumably you are reading this because you want to know something more about me, although I'm sure we've already met. Here are the highlights: I like money. If we meet you should give me some, it's how my people show respect. I'll probably forget your name. Not that it's not important to me, I just really suck at remembering it. If I call you Steve and it's really Brian, just know that I'm trying. If I call you Steve and it's really Stacy, just know that I'm drunk. If I call you Steve and it's really Steve, just know that I got lucky and will then need to buy a lotto ticket. I have a Sports Management degree, so yes, I know a lot about sports. However, my knowledge is very specific to running a team and the teams I like. I don't give a shit who was the back up third baseman for the Rockies in 1997, so please don't ask. Don't fuck with Aurora in my presence. I grew up there so it will not end well. I once tried to justify that I loved a job so much that I was going to give it up for Lent. The company couldn't say no as that would be against my religion and basically a hate crime. How'd it end? Welp, I'm now a Quizmaster. Yes, I do always talk like the 'Moviephone' guy. Is that still a thing and is that dude still recording movies? Those are my highlights. Please pay attention to #1, that's really key. These are my beliefs, you can't contradict or that's a hate crime.

Minnesota Vikings = 4 Super Bowl Losses
Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

Sometimes the hints really do help out and every so often they just provide amazing blog fodder for me. Tonight’s example, Diana Ross and her Chain Reactions. I suppose chemistry could have some “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” equation, but alas, not tonight. Familiar faces at the top tonight: Rage Against the Vending Machine, Drinking Team with a Trivia Problem and Los Chingones were you’re top three teams again. It was old hat and something we've seen before. What was interesting, the newbie team of MY Drinking Team with a Trivia Problem showed up to wreak havoc with

Texan Bob
Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

  I’ll grant you that Texas isn’t my favorite state, probably because I’m always behind someone with Te-has plates going twenty MPH under the speed limit in the left-hand lane with the blinker on, but when someone from that state decides against joining the Confederacy, we should remember him with honor. Here’s to you Texan Bob…wait, what’s that? Oh NOT Texan Bob! We’ll that made for a good answer. Once again, you all look at Rage Against the Vending Machine with spite but also a fair amount of reverence. “I hate that team, but damn do I respect them” is on constant loop in your mind.

Shhhhhh!
Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

Audio rounds are tricky in general, but tonight when people are talking boisterously over the sweet, sweet sounds of Will Ferrell bustin’ out some “Dust in the Wind,” it makes it extra difficult. You know what, Royal Hilltop trivia crew, you still crushed it! Our scores tonight show that we have some pretty smart people, some very smart people and some VERY smart people. I gush, but I like the way you quiz. In a back-and-forth match, The Tapir's Highly Articulate Wang and Rage Against the Vending Machine really went at it (not literally). In the end, probably with the help of that Tapir’s massive MASSIVE dick, the Tapir’s

I Stand By My Statement
Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

I'm sorry if you disagree, but I fully believe that Maroon 5 are ass-hats. Now I didn’t say ‘no talent’ ass-hats, although I think that argument could be made, but anyone who tries that hard to be cool really can’t be called anything else. Although he/they are better than that loser Bruno Mars…I digress. Very solid turnout again tonight. Don’t be dissuaded from coming to compete, eventually Valar Merdes – Everybody Poops (tonight’s iteration) will lose, but it wasn’t tonight. Holding the fourth spot after seven rounds, the come from behind victory was complete upon the reading of the final round. I

John Goodman...Relax
Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

Here at Geeks Who Drink we can’t be making things too easy on you all. Most of the time, you hit some rounds out of the park and some rounds are a struggle. Some nights, everything’s in the wheelhouse. Every once and while we get a night where teams scrap and struggle for every point; tonight fit squarely in this category. You got through it and did surprisingly well; only one team answered Bruno Mars for a question on the Bruno Mars round. Go Set A Watch, Man had a strong couple of rounds and pulled out into the lead early and stayed there for the whole night.

I Dreamed A Dream
Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

I dream that one day Pluto will be re-instated as a planet...you know what, screw that, I was taught it was a planet and you can't just take that away, so let me re-phrase.   I dream that one day science will discover more moons around planet Pluto so we can call them Dr Evil, Scott Evil and No. 2  to go along with the current 'axis of evil' named moons. On to last night...   Fuck Mountain (thanks for choosing that when my parents decided to show up) pretty much ran away with the quiz last night. It was all in their wheelhouse and the other teams were powerless to keep up. Seriously, they had already used their joker by the time

More Fast, More Furious
Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

Analogies abound in tonight's recap (that's what alliterative means):   Whirling Dervishes literally ran away with it tonight. I asked them if they were cheating, they said 'no' and laughed like a team that just took over the quizzing world. Analogy: Pinky and the Brain. I couldn't fully tell if they were genius or insane, but overall they wanted to conquer the quizzing world. (oh yeah, Pinky is the genius, by the way)   Generally, putting up 83 points would be enough to take home the win. However, SCOTUS and Fabulous Both End In 'Us'…Coincidence? split apart from Four Terrible Tribbles and

From the Diary of a Virgin Quizmaster
Mortimer P Bushbaby, IV

Dear Diary -  Tonight I hosted my first real-life pub quiz! Eeeeeeek. Much like starting a roll of toilet paper, it was tricky to get going. However, once we started I think things went pretty well and we got some work done.  Count Deadku, in a charitable nod to the late Christopher Lee, decided to forgo the 'sudden-death tiebreaker showdown' and gave the win to Priscilla Queen of the Damned. Whether it was fear of losing or general quiz-manship that lead to that act of kindness, I'll never know. It did, however, save me from having to administer said 'sudden-death tiebreaker showdown' and keeping one cherry left

Rules for being a German spy
Tex from Pittsburgh

The finest quizzers in the Aurora metropolitan area showed up for a fine quiz at the ol' Royal Hilltop tonight. Our winners were a team called American Pharaoh, who named themselves after a certain racehorse who just won the Triple Crown. Maybe you heard something about that recently. But the name of the horse isn't American Pharaoh, it's American Pharoah, i.e., the horse's name doesn't use the correct spelling for the name of an ancient Egyptian ruler.   The quiz team said they simply didn't have the heart to misspell the word as their namesake horse does. I say kudos to them -- it's that kind of commitment to the facts

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:


I am married to a lovely lady and live in West Denver with my two lovely cats, Lucy and Trousers. We don't have any kids yet and my wife says we can't name any kids Lucy on account of that's what the cat's name is. If I'd have known that I would have named the cat something else, you know? 


The name of the gang is my neighborhood is the "West Ninth Fuk Puppets," judging by the graffiti in my alley.


I collect Cthulhu statuettes, paisley ties, aloha shirts, animal skulls, briar pipes, expired passports off of eBay and smashed pennies. I used to collect pogs but then they stopped selling them.


I've never broken an arm or leg, and never had chicken pox. I am immune to bedbug bites and nearly immune to mosquito bites.


I've been in three fights in my adult life and won 1 1/2 of them.


I went to Spain for my honeymoon. I had diarrhea for seven of the 10 days of the trip.


I won the Phoenix Public Schools spelling bee for 3rd grade in 1990. I got 100 percent on all my spelling tests in 4th grade except for the word "masquerade," which I spelled correctly, but I got a half point taken off because my sloppy cursive made the "u" look like a "v". But to hell with that. I spelled it correctly, give me the full point, right?


I must have done other stuff besides that, but that's about all I can think of.


UPDATE: The above is all still accurate, except now I live in East Denver and have a 2-year-old son. Also, I'm not sure what the gang is in my new neighborhood.

The Ghost of Quizmas Future
Tex from Pittsburgh

The top three teams always get gift certificates at the Royal Hilltop -- $25, $15 and $10 for first, second and third -- but those daring quizzers who sign up for our email list can enter to win an additional prize. That prize varies from week to week. Sometimes it's a Geeks Who Drink pint glass, sometimes it's a bacon-flavored lollipop.   Tonight's email prize was a fancy-looking notebook. The fella who won it was a tad underwhelmed because he has migrated all of his note-taking to the digital age and has no use for such antiquated notions as actual paper. In a display of goodwill and sportsmanship, he generously donated his prize notebook to a fellow quizzer who also

Oly and other phants. Mainly elephants.
Tex from Pittsburgh

Say gang, I had a delightful time quizzin' at you once again. You're a smart crowd, you're also very polite, which is something I always look for in a quiz venue.    Also, have you had the bangers and mash? I think it's fantastic. They put plenty of butter in the mash, which is something I always look for in a quiz venue.   The winning team took exception to my pronunciation of actor/pachyderm Timothy Olyphant's last name. I contended my pronunciation was correct, as I had it spelled out phonetically on my quiz sheet. Yes, the Geeks Who Drink higher-ups just take it for granted that we quizmasters are too drunk and/or brain-damaged to pronounce

I collect Cthulhu statuettes, paisley ties, aloha shirts, animal skulls, briar pipes, expired passports off of eBay and smashed pennies. I used to collect pogs but then they stopped selling them.


I've never broken an arm or leg, and never had chicken pox. I am immune to bedbug bites and nearly immune to mosquito bites.


I've been in three fights in my adult life and won 1 1/2 of them.


I went to Spain for my honeymoon. I had diarrhea for seven of the 10 days of the trip.


I won the Phoenix Public Schools spelling bee for 3rd grade in 1990. I got 100 percent on all my spelling tests in 4th grade except for the word "masquerade," which I spelled correctly, but I got a half point taken off because my sloppy cursive made the "u" look like a "v". But to hell with that. I spelled it correctly, give me the full point, right?


I must have done other stuff besides that, but that's about all I can think of.


UPDATE: The above is all still accurate, except now I live in East Denver and have a 2-year-old son. Also, I'm not sure what the gang is in my new neighborhood.

Sci Fi Drag Queen Villains
Hunter

You'd think this would be a new episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, but no, it's just cinematic history. Round 7 brought us clips from comic book movie super-villains. Two of these villains were Red Skull from Captain America: The First Avenger and General Zod from Superman II. I hope all of you recognized them (Hugo Weaving and Terence Stamp respectively) from The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Now let's see if you can watch either of them in any of their other movie roles without picturing them in drag. Frankly, it would be hilarious to see a big drag cat fight in any of the Matrix films. Would Keanu Reeves now say "I know kung fu" and

Where are the muppets of yesteryear?
Tex from Pittsburgh

I had a grand time being your quizmaster at the ol' Royal Hilltop. The quiz took place the night of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, but we still had a full house. We apparently didn't miss anything, cuz a)Pacquiao was secretly injured, and b) the key to Mayweather's greatness is being super-good at defense rather than throwing spectacular haymakers, which is all anyone who isn't a huge boxing fan wants to see.   Our "Corpses of the '90s" round was a tad ghoulish. Basically, we had to name people who died in the 1990s by playing clips of their voices. Some of them I vaguely remember dying, but the two whose deaths I remember being truly saddened by were Jim Henson and John
