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

Vag vs. Dong
Stanley Alexander

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

Stanley Alexander

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

Stanley Alexander

Good game, good game, good game. Well played. Go fuck yaself. Hats off to Shut Yer Butt, not only for the three-person win out of a 16-team field, but for the incredibly tasteful MacGruber reference in their team name! Well done. Props also to The Person Who Names Our Team is Being Held at the Airport, who have the best team name I've seen at Base Camp yet, to Micah, who makes no bones about her deal-breakers when it comes to the Bronte sisters (pictured at left), and to Pussy Riot, who turned in only one answer sheet—a lowest-in-the-field 3-point score on R8, the final round of the pub quiz. That's how you wreck a team's moonshot.   Gotta

Stanley Alexander

Oh MAN, talk about your nail-biters! I'm sitting on the edge of my seat wondering if Alt-Right Delete is gonna get a high enough R8 score (cause they haven't used their joker and they're ahead of six other teams who have) to come back and take first away from Bring Back Crusher, who have been in first all night long, and then R8 happens and FUCKS YOUR SHIT UP LIKE WHOA. I know you come here, and you get mad stuff right, and you go home and—even if you didn't win—are like, “I got mad skills. What.” But every once in a while a round comes around that rounds you right in the round. Or... something else... something that makes

Would You Buy a Used Car From This Man?

Evening, yall. My name is Stanley. Pleased to make your acquaintance. As a liberal young non-millionaire, Alex decided he could be more optimistic about the future of Mongolia than that of Trump's America, so he is now hosting pub quiz in Ulaanbaatar. Being a white, straight, male villain, I am ideally placed to thrive in the glorious, golden future we're about to pretend to create. Praise God in all His Glory, I've come to Make Base Camp Great Again.   It was a good one tonight, kids. Some good old fashioned hotly contested, edge-of-your-seat shit. Loved it. Alt-Right Delete held down the first place spot almost the whole night until they slipped

Humble Pie
Stanley Alexander

Ok, ok. Enough. I know it's golf, not gulf, I understand celebrities might pronounce their names in such ways as to confuse our plebeian tongues, and I know that reading books is just like reading books. With a nod to my friends, I'd like to advise you to keep your ego in check when critiquing books: if you say some pretentious shit like “I feel like I'm reading a book” to describe why you don't like a book, your friends will probably make fun of you.   In other news, let's hand it tonight to Clever Mutts, who hung in there to snatch first place from the Master Builders on the tiebreak.

Welcome to the Future
Stanley Alexander

Let it ne'er be said that perseverance does not pay. Take it from The Show Me Steaks, who were in an unenviable 6th or 7th or some other middling place halfway through, but stuck in there to nail (and joker) 15 points on R7 to pull out a 2-point win, beating out Hold Me Closer, Tiny Answer, who held first place between rounds 6 and 7 without having used a joker, and Cream of Ghost, who jokered R1 and sat there in first place feeling like the lords of all creation without realizing that they were the only jokerless team in the room. I say it every week, people: use the joker wisely!   This

About Goddamn Time
Stanley Alexander

Nothing like a holiday quiz to remind you that some of your family members, though obnoxious and diametrically opposite from you on the political spectrum, can still be valuable to you. Insert Witty & Relevant Current Events Pun Here took that advice to heart and invited EVERYBODY, or at least SEVENBODY, thereby disqualifying themselves from the glory of winning first place by a voluptuous 13 points. Therefore the grace of the win tonight goes to Hangin' Brain, a slim-but-smart two man squad! A scant point behind them was Keeping Up with the Chlamydians, a team of lovely people named after an arguably uncouth suggestion I made

In Which R6 Becomes a Paul Walker Tribute
Stanley Alexander

Boner Jams '07 FTW!!!!! Seriously, that was a comeback for the ages. These fathermockers occupied a spot somewhere right around the halfway mark before R7, and then casually aced that round (the only team to do so) before jokering a best-in-the-field 13-point R8 effort to take the win. Well done. Mariah Carey-on-Luggage will have to wait till next week to claim their throne. Props to Alt-Right-Delete, who have won here before and put up a great fight tonight (and have a fuckin dastardly name, if I do say so myself).   Tonight's Comic Relief award goes to Pulp Friction, who in R2 got the artist,

In Which John Glenn Wins a Song of the Year Grammy
Stanley Alexander

The Russians stole the quiz! I'm not just trying to rabble-rouse... we need to convene a hacking-investigation committee, because these father mockers won so hard that my faith in my country is shaken. With a 14-point win, Russian to Fill the Cabinet played like their rival didn't come out this week—which indeed they didn't. They'll have to wait till next week to fight the Vag of Honor.   Tonight's Comic Relief award goes to 2 Older Women in Younger Mens' Bodies (Gloria & Phyllis) for both their team name and their answer to the college football ranking which-team-is-predictably-number-one question:
