Joining us tonight were Walking w/ Scissors, Dork Out With Your Pork Out, Kick Me in the Junker, Sha Boyz, Rockies, and Permvayk.   We had not been to Base Camp before.

The ambiance- lots of cool photographs and a boat hanging from the ceiling (!) High tech fancy wireless microphone Cool patio seating Cheap beer Gregarious

Whew!
Stanley Alexander

  THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is what I talk about when I talk about a pub quiz. Base Camp tonight was a seething mass of human flesh expanding laterally at the speed of quiz. Much props to Beaver Sleepers, with the one-point win in a particularly crowded field. Props also to Toss My Salad Harder, who only added “Harder” to their team name after I singled it out as a particularly pleasing team name. Faced with a question ending in “...what primary color,” they chose to answer “redish white.” [sic] You do you, yall. And I'll go as hard as you want. My favorite answer of the night, though,

Weird Al Knows Dick About Safety
Stanley Alexander

Ladies and gentlemen, let this be a lesson to you as to why you should never, EVER run with scissors. When you walk, you win by 15 points. When you run, nothing really happens. The choice is clear. Speaking of 15 points, that was their score on a particularly low-scoring R2. Joker that, and you have an idea why I gave up hope of any other team catching them by 7:30.   Props to my sister, who was so excited about the Raiders question that she allowed her team to answer it as pictured at left: “Indian Jones : Raiders the of Lost Ark.” That was a favorite of ours growing up, and I was just about as excited delivering the answer as she was giving

May Day Cray Cray
Stanley Alexander

Good shit yall, good shit. Cray cray on this May Day. Mad props to Orange Is the New Hack, who have been here before under various different monikers and have almost always won. Don't sleep on these peeps, peeps. They ain't fuckin around. Props also to Master Builders for acing (and jokering) R2—that's something that doesn't happen every day, and usually results in a win. Not tonight, as it turns out, but you gotta keep your O-face on if it comes. Props also to Who Knew this Job Was So Hard, both for the name and because Nick gave them their 2nd-place prize directly, so that they left before I was able

Holy Rollers
Stanley Alexander

Well, I'm gonna go home and shut up. Lotsa words tonight kids; two whole extra rounds worth of words coming out of my foul mouth tonight. You held up well under the unexpected tension, and I admire you for it. As a matter of fact, I like like you for it. Can we go out to dinner sometime?   Came for the Beer; Stayed for the Marshmallows. They won tonight's quiz in a surprise R2, and that's pretty much all she wrote. Plus, they get mad props from this geek for having a semicolon in their team name.   Props also go to Walking with Scissors and Don't Ask About Aaron, it's a Sore Subject, who are

What does it all MEAN???
Stanley Alexander

Well played, you lovable Portland geeks you. Well played. Especially of course Dork Out With Your Pork Out, a team I have been fortunate enough to call my own on a number of occasions, who not only crushed it by ten points tonight but also netted the high score in fully half of tonight's rounds, including both 16-pointers. That is what I talk about when I talk about execution.   Tonight's shoutout goes to Alt-Right Delete, who has taken to making a game of drawing dicksandballs all over their answer sheets, some of which appear to be shooting some mysterious fluid all over my first name. I'm not gonna post a

U2 EATS PEOPLE
Stanley Alexander

How lovely to see all your shiny happy faces holding hands tonight! How lovely! For real tho, it was weird to see you holding hands with your faces. It will only be a matter of time before our bold society finally strikes cannibalism from its list of unforgivable taboos.   400, 800, Get the Fuck Off This Plane. That's pretty much the whole story tonight folks—they came here to get shit done, and did at that. A six-point win is impressive enough, but these guys also logged a solo high score on three of tonight's rounds, and one of their number won four out of five bonus questions tonight. Yall better watch out, that's all I'm sayin.

Feeding (Drunk) Oregonians
Stanley Alexander

So... who won that basketball game? Surely some of you must know. I don't, because I was busy having way, way more fun at pub quiz than anyone ever will watching college basketball. I mean, come on. Those guys don't even get paid. You're basically watching slavery. Great game tonight kids. I'm super proud of allayall who came today, because every last one of you chose to participate in our Quiz For A Cause and donate to Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon. That makes me feel like a warm, fuzzy Oregonian. Does it smell like patchouli in here? Mad props tonight to To Be Determined, who were determined enough tonight to win their second quiz in

Dig Ol' Bics
Stanley Alexander

Well. I hope you're happy with yourselves. A nice big-dick comeback to take first and a four-way tie for second? What do you think this is, a real-life version of The Mighty Ducks? Hella props to To Be Determined for the big dick and Snake Criminal (which of course is the opposite of Mongoose Detective) for their uncannily close second-place-winning tiebreak question answer and their super-strong endgame, an impressive big-dick scenario on their part as well. Props as well to Alt-Right Delete for their illustration of myself and Daniel playing swords (pictured at left). Or, at least, I think

To Dork Out With One's Pork Out
Stanley Alexander

It was a momentous night tonight, ladies and gentlemen. For starters, it was a night in which I consented to “Fuck You Alex” being submitted as an answer by multiple teams in multiple rounds—not to mention “Fuck You Alex^2” (read as: [fuck you Alex] squared... or maybe fuck you, [Alex] squared), not sure how to interpret order of operations in the context of fucking me. Speaking of fucking, tonight was also momentous in terms of how many different terms for coitus I got to read tonight. Fornicating, “sexy time,” penetrative intercourse, un-imaculate conception, the word 'fucking' set next to a highly suggestive winking smiley

GARGLE
Stanley Alexander

You guys held it down tonight, through speed bumps like obscure songs, my sense of humor, and an entire round on basketball in the '70s. I commend you for it, and softly remind you how quickly you'd get bored if you knew every answer and tied three out of every ten quizzes with perfect scores, or if I had the charm of a unicorn. No one wants that.   Props tonight go to Oops I burnt the CIA, who came back last-minute from midfield on the strength of a powerful R8 (13 points, jokered), and Seymore Butts, who decided to win on the night my brother didn't come to quiz, presumably in an effort to make him feel bad for not coming to

Who Will Save Your Pub Quiz?
Stanley Alexander

Good showing tonight everyone, good showing indeed! I'm not positive, but I think tonight's quiz might have seen the highest number of teams we've yet had here at Base Camp. THAT'S WHAT I TALK ABOUT WHEN I TALK ABOUT EXECUTION. Gotta give all the props tonight to Idiot SaFlants for their impressive one-point victory. They haven't played here before, yet they came and showed their mettle... to the entire bar. Yeah. This marks the second week in a row that a first-time team has won the game. Do you know what this means? I'll tell you. When a venue has been around long enough, it begins to develop a small handful of teams (like 2-5 teams) that

Jokers In the House!
Stanley Alexander

Sup yall. Good turnout tonight. At least, it felt like one, even though we had fewer teams tonight than usual. Why was that? Maybe there was more love in the room. Although love, of course, is just tactful-speak for lube, so maybe we were just more properly lubricated than we've been in the past. Either way, I felt it. And it felt good.   Hand it to We're Here By Accident, representing one of those times that team names mirror reality—these guys came to Base Camp for some random non-pub-quiz-related reason, maybe they're trying to reach the top, I dunno—but they came, heard we were playing quiz and said Shit, we're smart as a dude

Good game, good game, good game. Yeah, I know it was tough. <5pt. averages abound. But I ask you this: if every quiz were easy AF, how good would you feel about those tough ones that you nailed?   Sympathy For Sweden took it home tonight; the quiz that left everyone else in the room bewildered just shot right up their alley, and bestowed on them a comfortable five point win. Props to Our Team for coming out of nowhere to place in 3rd, Schlong Connor for drawing a dick pick (dick pictured) to challenge the dick pics drawn by another one of our regular teams, Schlong Connor again for

Well done labies and genes, well done. I am glad that you were able to share this night with me, a night when I was afforded the opportunity to speak the word “vagina” multiple times over a microphone in a crowded bar. I feel bonded to you.   It was all White Hows Spell Checker tonight, who are obviously much more intelligent than their namesake. They aced and jokered R2 and didn't give anyone else a chance after that. Mad props to Micah—did you notice how sharp your pencils were tonight??? Yeah. Them shits don't sharpen themselves.

Super BLAO
Stanley Alexander

Sup childrens. You guys did good tonight. We put on a hell of a show. It damn near rivaled the intensity of the super bowl we saw last night (he says, at the risk of reminding his rightfully biased constituency of the dastardly competence of the New England Patriots). Not very often do we see a three-way tie. The French call it a menage-a-twie. I call it a fuckin three-way tie. For first place, ladies and gents. Make no mistake; shit is, in fact, real. AND, we blasted through most of a sudden death round before anyone got eliminated. When they finally did, it was Loose Wet... Avalanche, who happened to not have read that one depressing Jodi Picoult
