What if there was a male equivalent of “My Humps” like “My Bulge?” I’m guessing that Robin Thicke would be involved . . . Lots of Anti-Trump/Anti-Republican Team Names Wednesday: Fake Quiz. SAD!, Judge Gorsuckadick, In the Butt-Paul Ryan, and most brazenly of all, Fuck Donald Trump. Madonna would’ve approved . . . Silverchair started grunge but has adapted their sound throughout the years . . . Fake Quiz. SAD! took third, Missing Pieces finished second, and Blood Bath and Beyond won the whole thing . . . Jean Grey/Phoenix has died a lot . . . Ellie Goulding looks like Dakota Fanning . .

A Terrifying Journey into My Mind
RESII

 The Missing Pieces put the pieces together—see what I did there—and went flawless on round seven, which was worth 16 points because they knew all the television creators. Ham and Ketchup Sandwich came up second while Tres Lobos earned the three spot. I started talking like Casey Casem during round two. It just felt right. I had not practiced that earlier—nor had Mr. Casem been on my mind recently. I guess I’ve been watching some Saved by the Bell but I saw Casey’s episode months ago. Impersonations are fun. I once did a whole hour-long tour in an English accent and no one called me

Bill Paxton: A Character for All
RESII

When a huge star dies, it is relatively easy to encapsulate their legacy. Bowie and Prince made some of the best music of the last few decades. Mary Tyler Moore was a comedic genius. It should be easy to encapsulate Bill Paxton’s legacy too. He was a genius—yet better in supporting roles in films than being the lead star. He was versatile: he could be slimy (True Lies), authoritative (Edge of Tomorrow/Live.Die.Repeat.), and macho then wimpy (Aliens). He could do dramas like A Simple Plan and comedies like Club Dread. Basically, Paxton could make projects better. James Cameron found that to be true and thus used him extensively.

There Are a Lot of Good Movies that Take Place in Just One Day
RESII

Damn, there are a lot of really good films that that take place over a day (round seven). Die Hard is perhaps the greatest action film of all-time: underdog Bruce Willis wisecracks against impeccable bad guy Alan Rickman. Dazed and Confused and Clue are so enjoyable they have been on my list of top five rewatchable films for years (search my old blog posts for confirmation). I forgot that Superbad and Clerks both are all over one day, though Superbad is more a 24 hour journey as the resolution occurs in a shopping mall the day after. I think Gravity ends the next day too but in space, no one can tell

Apologies to the Goo Goo Dolls
RESII

There were two mentions of the Goo Goo Dolls in Wednesday’s quiz so I took the opportunity to mock the band. However, I have hence seen the errors of my ways and I’d like to use this opportunity to apologize the band right now. Goo Goo Dolls, I’m sorry for making fun of you and saying that a concert with you and Counting Crows is “my nightmare.” I’m sorry that you’re insipid soft rock melodies fill me with a sense of awful and make me believe that I’m going to be watching a turgid melodrama. Although I did not say it last night, I’d like to apologize for thinking that your name is terrible. Clearly, I am wrong and your name

Charles Haley is Cray
RESII

Other than Tom Brady, Charles Haley is the only person to win five Super Bowl rings as a player. But I bet Brady never threw his poop at a coach. That’s just one of the amazing anecdotes of Haley, according to my favourite book of all time, Jeff Pearlman’s Boys Will Be Boys. The book recounts the 1990s Cowboys dynasty which Haley became a part of. Most of Haley’s outrageous exploits occur before his time in Dallas, when Haley was racking up Super Bowl’s in San Francisco. Haley once exposed himself in a team meeting and starting playing with himself. Would pretty boy Brady do that? Would you watch? What athletic impropriety

February First: Four Way Final Featured
RESII

Holy smokes. Sorry to lead off with the bidet mouth, but four teams tied for first place Wednesday. I thought the floor was going to open up and a Kraken was going to consume us all but that didn’t happen. What happened was an overtime for the ages. Trump’s Deportees, They Gave the Last Schnitzel to the White Guy, Yonce’s Twins, and The Missing Pieces all came around for a five-question extra round. Well, Trump Deportees won that but now there were three teams tied for second place. To solve that dilemma, teams received a numbers question and whichever squad was closest received second place, the next closest

Avian Controversy Leads to Barbeque Sauce
RESII

Controversy gripped Three Lions Wednesday as a group of humans who identified themselves as “work[ing] at the Denver Zoo,” claimed that the visual round was in error. They contended that the bird pictured in number seven was not a California Condor but some of other type of bird that I forget. After I received a vicious tongue lashing for what seemed like hours, they finally stopped yelling at me. My ears were bleeding and I think I somehow received jaundice. It still looks like a California Condor to me, but either way, that bird is huge. I was kind of a bird of prey myself yesterday. As in I preyed on parts of a bird—some Chicken Tenders at

What is Kevin Federline up to These Days?
RESII

While I drove to work this morning, I was lucky enough to catch some Bill Burr on the stand-up comedy station. He mentioned Britney Spears, which lead me to wonder what Kevin Federline was up to nowadays. Federline, also known as K-Fed or Fed Ex, was the one-time paramour of Britney Spears. He was a backup dancer who was able to nail the big one (does that count as a pun?) and actually married Spears. Shockingly, this partnership did not last. After a couple of years together, Spears divorced Federline. So, years after his divorce from Spears and his tour through reality television, what is Federline currently doing? According to Entertainment Tonight, Federline

The Joy of After
RESII

Round seven celebrated films which feature a post-credit sequence. That is, the film ends, and then there is an epilogue is tacked on at the end. This is awesome. Marvel movies really have done a great job at teasing the next step in their process—and what’s more, the producers had it right from the get go. In 2008, Iron Man started the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After the credits, Nick Fury meets with Tony Stark to discuss the Avengers, setting up a multi-billion dollar series of movies. Damn, that’s some profitable post credit scene work. In Marvel movies hence, the post-credit segment has been used to further the storyline and introduce

Different Ways to Call Banana Slugs Huge (And Silverback Gorillas Small)
RESII

As quizzers learned in last night’s round three, the banana colour is not the only reason why the animal is known as the banana slug. I’m referring to the phallic nature of banana slugs. Banana slugs are hung like horses. Or—perhaps a more accurate thing to say would be that horses are almost hung like bananas slugs. The monster dongs of banana slugs are as large as the creature itself (around eight inches). That’s . . . impressive. In contrast, there is the member of the silverback gorilla. Male silverbacks have an average dick size of a little over an inch—an inch and a half if they’re really lucky. [Insert

If Dame Judi Dench Can Wait Til She's 81 to Get a Tattoo Then So Can I
Stephanie P

There's a lot of reminiscing about 2016 going around, most of it sour-toned and contemptuous. Part of that's because a bunch of legitimately shat things happened this year, but I think it's also in part because the internet told us that's what we should do (darn you, internet!!!). While I agree that 2016 can suck a wet noodle already, I'd like to remind you gentle readers that legitimately shat things happen *every* year, just like really nice things happen every year too. For example: researchers developed an Ebola vaccine that apparently really works; the Chicago Cubs won the World Series; and I got to host quiz at Three Lions.Have you ever been to the quiz at Three Lions?

A 2016 Retrospecticus
RESII

With time running out on December, let’s reminisce on this past year of horror and sorrow, 2016. Clichés are clichés for a reason. There is a reason that high school students read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby but not F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Love of the Last Tycoon. (Note: The Love of the Last Tycoon is also a great book but it was not finished). What’s the point? Many people have noted what a crazy year 2016 was. And they are right. This year, a myriad of celebrities died. A man who has been accused of sexual harassment multiple times and with zero political office was elected president.
