Head Cheese Is A Thing?
Willow

Word of caution friends:If for some reason you decide to google "head cheese," I strongly suggest having the safe search ON.(no judgements here, whatever tickles your pickle, floats your boat, rocks your socks, etc.) It is always fun watching you guys get sassier as the night goes on.Using my powers of scientific deduction, I have reached the final conclusion:More drinks = increase in interesting answers. "Who was Don Quixote's lady love?""CANDI THE STRIPPER!" No. Just no. FIRST

Nachooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Willow

Guys..... Guys. As a woman of proud Mexican decent I am midly ashamed to admit just how much I giggled at one of the answers from last night's quiz. You were asked to name what Mexican tradition a masked wrestler participated in. The correct answer was Lucha Libre.Someone wrote "Nacho Libre."*Insert absurd amount of giggles* We also had two teams tie for second place, resulting in a pretty hardcore game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Back two back the gentlemen got their bodies ready. I felt like I was in one of those old time shoot

When in doubt, the answer is ALWAYS Ikea
Willow

A whole load of you folks know a good deal of the chemical elements.Your highschool chemistry teachers would be delighted.I was impressed.Sadly, we did not do so well on the round regarding Jonathan Demme.We clearly don't know shit about him...BUTprops to all my teams that came up with creative answers of their own.These impromptu answers ranged from "Ikea", to "pickles", to "fuck you." One of the best bits of the night was our group of "Recovering Catholics."A handful of friends had attended a Catholic middle school 20 years ago and reunited over pub quiz.

Kara NOT okay
John's smirking revenge

I like to sing. Don’t get me wrong, I sound, at best, like a malnourished gorilla that was given a set of bagpipes to beat up out of hunger, but still.   I usually do it to embarrass my kid, but considering I raised her correctly, she doesn’t embarrass TOO easily and ends up singing with me when we shop for groceries, or order food at the drive through, confuse birds in the trees, etc.   I bring this up because our music round was comprised of karaoke covers by a couple that host a Youtube channel called ‘Music BnB style’ (Look it up, it’s cringeworthy but hilarious.)   I also bring it

Tally me banana
John's smirking revenge

There is nothing more stressful in a new relationship than meeting your significant other’s family. Especially parents. You want to make a good impression, be respectful, and hope they at least semi approve of who their daughter/son is dating. Over the past month I have been privileged enough to meet my girlfriend’s parents and they are very sweet, great humored people. It brings me great pleasure to report that I think they like me well enough, considering they, along with my girlfriend heckled the living crap out of me last night.   -_- Either way, we had a blast running through a challenging round naming original artists over cover

Agility & Grace
Willow

Apparently none of you fools watch It's Always Sunny. No one got the bonus question asking how many seasons there were. NO ONE! We had a sad little bonus token sitting there... cold... lonely... so alone. We had to give the sad little token a home. I held it up over my head, waved it around frantically, and shouted, "FIRST ONE TO THE TABLE WINS!!!" It turns out that the fella from Brown Chicken Brown Cow is the fastest of the lot. He moved like a graceful gazelle as he pounced from his chair, flew through the air, and snatched the prize triumphantly.

1st Place: #Blessed2nd Place: Brown Chicken Brown Cow3rd Place: We Didn't Start The Fire!   Hi, friends! *waves* I'm Willow. I am a baby Quiz Master, and John was kind enough to let me hijack The Londoner for my training night. I am quite proud to report that with a few sound hiccups (sorry if you sat by a speaker and got blasted), I totally kicked ass. My favorite part of the night was most definitely the tie-breaker. We had two teams tie for second place. I instructed each team to send

Just add boobs
John's smirking revenge

Let’s talk about something that has been bugging me lately. I know that the term “Sex sells” is a well known term for a reason. But when you have seen this stretched to insane means, it’s really something that should be discussed. The sexy elephant in the room if you will.This past weekend, my lovely girlfriend and I drew the shades, hid from the world and indulged in a binge watching session of Kleenex sponsored ‘This is Us.’If you haven’t watched this show, it’s fantastic even though it’s goal is to make sure you’re ugly sobbing before the end of each episode. Unfortunately, since it was through an NBC app,

Possibly the WORST Pick up line in history...
John's smirking revenge

The Londoner, has and always will be one of the best places to come for great food and drinks. Even the staff is accommodating and has your back if you become a regular. I knew this long before becoming a QM and it’s part of the reason I JUMPED at the chance to host when the venue became available.Sometimes you have nights that go off the rails, albeit, in hilarious ways. Thanks to Spring Break, we had a bar at practically triple the capacity, outnumbered by the “Woooo!” crowd, we went through a tumultuous loudly yelled quiz. But even with the distractions of people not playing, adults asking me to “Watch the salty language,” (Oh, I’m

My pants ARE still breakaway though...
John's smirking revenge

I often shill myself out during quiz. I, as all quizmasters, can be hired out for private events (“Put me in your HOUSE!”) but as of yet, I have not been asked to head up a bar mitzvah or Birthday or anything. Well… until now.I was asked about what it would take to get me to host quiz at a Bachelorette Party.There was a bit of a flirty vibe even after I told them I was “Booed up,” but I did advise the ladies they had to go through our website. But there is a bigger question that should be asked. WHY have a quiz at a Bachelorette Party? Can you even imagine? A bunch of ladies pre-gaming, wooing through a Playlist Mix called

Swedish Chef is BAE
John's smirking revenge

I have been a quizmaster for awhile now. It brings me joy to host quiz week after week and making sure people have a great time. As is common, one of the more popular rounds is our 2nd round that boils down to name that tune/artist. We often have a great mix, where the younger quizzers can school their older teammates on Taylor Swift, and the older crowd can help identify that Billy Joel song that goes over their heads.   Last night, we had 8 songs as sung by none other than one of my favorite Muppets, The Swedish Chef. I don’t care who you are, if you can get through listening to the chef without mimicking, you’re a robot, and I will destroy

Ben

SO this is a pretty cool place, I’m glad john gave me the opportunity to come hang out with you guys tonight. Hi everyone! I’m Ben, your one shot quiz master for the evening for an exciting night of pub quiz. IT’s always nice to see a new place and meet some great new quizzers. Tonight we had a round about eating your emotions. Guys, eating your emotions is never the right response. It just isn’t healthy. In this round, we learned that Rage Against the Machine became Audioslave. Well maybe you didn’t just learn that because most of you seemed to already know the answer to that particular question. After we got done doing some stress eating we moved on

Talking ducks and the chosen people
John's smirking revenge

    It was a fun night last night with a lot of new people and some familiar faces from other venues joining us! Guys, there is nothing I like more than a healthy dose of trash talking. One of my favorite regulars went toe to toe with her parents last night, and nothing brings family closer than razzing each other over rounds.   Of course, sometimes you are faced with a real challenge at quiz. Sometimes you have to really dig back in your brain and try and remember the differences between the films Howard the Duck and Schindler’s List.   Now we are asking the important questions.   Not to go unnoticed

That Time we all Wished we Paid More Attention in Science...
John's smirking revenge

I was a terrible student. I am pretty sure I had ADHD and not the fake kind that parents and lazy pediatricians state their kids have because they’re too lazy to discipline them. I was horrible at Math, Economics, Science, just about everything but English. But thanks to the power of positive thinking Adderal, I was able to overcome my issues and be one of the mostest smart person guy out there. (That one time you caught me eating paste was a medical issue, I swear I would have you call my doctor but he isn’t in this town.)That being said, we had a round of difficult science questions that were so tough, we provided half of the answer, and even

And I thought the dirtiest thing those guys said was "Crikey!"
John's smirking revenge

Australians are really loud. And if you engage with them, they will “Take the piss out of ye” and call you a “Great Cunt” and mean it as a gesture of friendliness. We had a team that dubbed themselves ‘Down Under’ and not only did they joyously admit they knew “fuck all” about Mary Tyler Moore, they will make a dick joke every time you finish a question. But there is nothing more refreshing than knowing fairly quickly that you can call said table of Australians “Crocodile Fuckees” and still expect a hug at the end of the night.Let me say this cautiously… I love a good challenge when it comes to hecklers. And as
