Mike Pence Unicorn Fanfic
Luke

The two winning teams tonight were the only two who showed up on time.  Punctuality pays off!  Really helps when the other teams miss the first round.  Pretty ace business in R1.  The bonus question after was bonkers though.  Apparently Mike Pence tweeted "The best thing for the inside of a man is the outside of a horse."  Does that mean he goes for a wank after watching the Preakness?  We don't know that he doesn't... ***While at RBC, try: Nugget Pale Ale.  It's a teensy bit sweet, and deceitfully strong.  I had beer breath the morning after.  Mmm hop fresh!   Oh man, R2 was tough.  Turns out, everybody

In R1Q2 we learned about Fibonacci numbers.  They are always the sum of the two numbers preceding them.  Except it starts with 0,1,1 for fancy reasons I can't figure out.  For future reference, 144 is a Fibonacci number, a square, and the sum of a twin-prime pair (71+73).  Put that in your pipe and smoke it!   ***Pro Tip:  There were some new teams last night so it bears repeating: Never leave an answer blank!  It doesn't matter if you don't know.  If you write down a wrong answer that's funny, you just might get partial credit.   Scoring R2 was a bit confusing at first.  Thought everyone was

The National Cowgirl HoF is not What You Think It Is

Gotta catch a flight, so your regular blog will be supplemented, substantiated, ah supplanted by a list of pretty good, but wrong, answers:   R1Q7:  Jim Henson's Puppets thought the city in eastern Washington that invented Father's Day was...Splash City?   R2Q6:  C^2 thought the Pet Shop Boys' West End Girls sounded more like Judas Priest's Breakin' the Law.  I wish!  Breakin the law breakin the law! Bah bah!   R3Q8:  Prenatal Care No Longer Covered, Swallowing Still Free  thought that scifi show with shiny chinese

In R6Q8, aptly named team Beer Chasers incorrectly guessed that prosciutto was the Japanese word for any thinly-sliced raw meat.  (Answer turned out to be sashimi).  The important thing is, prosciutto doesn't get its due compared to sushi and its ilk.  I'll eat a couple sushi here and there but I can't make a meal out of it.  But prosciutto, that is the food of kings.  Goes great with cheese, fruit, pizza, vegetables, vinegars.  Fragrant, marbled, and mouthwatering every time.  And you can't fuck it up.  Some of the big spenders in the audience will probably want to talk up the jamon iberico too.  Which is understandable.

Jewel Presents: A Night Without Weed Jokes
Luke

WARNING: EXPERIMENTAL QUIZMASTERING IN PROGRESS Oh yeah we threw a big skeevin' curveball at Thrusday night's pub quiz.  Paradigms were changed, worldviews were altered, and expectations were wholly upended as the quizmaster went rogue and dropped a monkey wrench into the standard GWD protocol.  Yes we bucked tradition and let attending quizzers read some of the questions.  Four different questions in four different rounds.  Oh my droogies it was tense and exciting totally fun to jump on the mic right?  Yeah we'll continue in the future letting the unwashed rabble access the means of question distribution.  Neat!   *** Sick

Oh that the enemies of science and facts might be fought with clever GWD team names.  We would've blown 'em out of the water tonight.  Guess we'll just have to rely on the old saws of civic engagement coupled with guerilla psy-ops.  The eve of Good Friday bid a kickass Thursday night at Reclamation Brewery, with 9 teams competing.   The night did not begin on a positive note, as nobody got R1Q1.  That means everybody learned that the world wide web is distinct from the internet.  Thanks, Tim Berners-Lee!  Werner Herzog plug:  Lo and Behold, Reveries of a Connected World is friggin' neat.  Check

[Eddie Vedder Impression Intensifies]
Luke

The night was dark (as nights are legally required) and intemperately cool.  At least I think it was.  I'm not from around here and I was pretty much of the mind that spring had begun.  So it was 40 degrees out when I left wearing naught but my thin polo shirt.  Anyways, on this night a riotous crowd ventured in from the cold to have a test of the ol' gray matter over the ol' sudsy stuff.  Three new teams last night, and they came to COMPETE!   Everything in R1 began and ended with the same letter.  Kind of like the lazy man's anagram, I mean palindrome.  Ooh, are there anagrams that are also palindromes?  Are there acronyms

Put It In Your Yam Wallet
Luke

The feminine hoo-ha.  Let's talk about it.  The question that last night's quiz hinged on came right in R4Q7.  Let it be known in Reclamation Brewery and throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania henceforth, that the pH of the vagina is closer to that of a tomato than...a yam.  Let that sink in.  To clarify, pH means the negative logarithm of the conentration of hydrogen ions, a scale of acidity.  Teams were forced to consider if the contents of the historic ham wallet were more akin to a juicy fruit of the nightshade family, or starchy herbaceous tuber.  Of the five teams in play, only (the apprently aptly named) Cool Guy Zone got

Gotta say, I think R7 "When You Wish Upon A Wookie" was the most entertaining round of the month.  I don't think I'd listen to an entire wookie Disney album, but the Disney - Star Wars merger paid off in unexpectedly hilarious fashion.  AND everybody nailed the songs (except those too-new Moana tunes). Side note:  Hit up your youtube and find the Star Wars Holiday Special.  It focuses on Chewie's nuclear family, featuring frightening makeup for his son and father.  Prime stoner viewing, I'd imagine.   Newcomers Dharma Initiative (also a great band name) jumped to an early lead by jokering on a nearly perfect R2.

Basketball: The Baddest Board Game?
Luke

St. Patrick's Day Eve GWD at Reclamation Brewery was an Irish success.  Some familiar faces last night and several new teams.  Wasn't that fun?  Dontcha wanna do it again?  Wouldn't you love GWD to be at your next birthday, bris, or braces-off makeout party?  It can happen for you! It pays to have a sports person on your team with all the NCAA tournament questions.  Also helped to know your board games in the visual round.  Now, basketball is played on a hardwood, parquet floor.  Does that make it a board game as well?  Forget rollin' the die, just lemme layup that rock.  Of course basketball can also be played on concrete, asphalt,

Wanna Drive My STD? It's red!

Let’s start with a PSA:  R8Q5 was a question about men carrying STIs, specifically the human papilloma virus.  This prompted a loudmouth UNWASHED NON-QUIZ PLAYER to start bragging about his own STi.  What the gentleman confused as an opportunity to boast of his bitchin’ Subaru tuner car to the patrons of RBC, was actually a trap to proclaim had he had a red hot Sexually Transmitted Infection.  That is the new preferred

Nobody Likes the Oboe Apparently
Greg

On what was an unusually warm night in Butler, Pennsylvania, things were definitely heating up with another exciting night of Geeks Who Drink quiz action. Seven different teams fight for the opportunity to be champion on this night and like always, only one can stand. With team name such as the ThunderCats ( I am incredibly disappointed at myself that I didn't bust out a “Thundercats are go” during the quiz at any time. Shame on me) and Tequila Mockingbird along with the also fantastically named E = MC Hammer, Culturally Ear Elephant and the classic Kiss Our Blarney Stones, it was definitely

And Then There Were...Two?
Greg

So there are some nights where you can just relax and have fun and enjoy each other’s company like a typical game night at your house with just a couple friends. This would be one of those nights. Only two teams came to play on this cold night in western Pennsylvania, but it was not without its good moments. The two teams playing tonight were Beets are Red (B.A.R. for short) and Losers, which may not have instilled much confidence in themselves from the outset, but they were good sports throughout the night. The two teams traded victories on the bonus questions, netting both teams a good chunk of the winnings throughout the night as well as the

The Clock is Ticking
Greg

If the title of the blog confuses you, it's because of something that I'm starting to notice. I’ll get to that in a little bit. Last night, we had 7 teams play in what was I believe was the most competitive game since I started hosting at Reclamation Brewing. All 7 teams put up quite a fight and all had solid rounds throughout the game. As always, the teams brought it with their clever names. The reigining champions of the past several weeks did it again with their politically themed, yet surprisingly not the first time I had heard it this week, name of The Betsy DeVos School For Kids That Don't Read Good And Want to Learn How to do Other Stuff Good Too.

We Have Ourselves a Cravate...or Tie!

On another cold night in Butler, Pennsylvania, it was a crazy night of pub quiz. This week, it seemed as if there would be a new king of the mountain…or kings and queens. It seemed like the reigning champions of the week Dingo Ate Trump’s Baby was going to be dethroned. If you’ve read previous blogs, you’ll notice the name changes week to week based on current events in the political realm. Regardless, a new couple challengers seemed to come to the forefront. Returning teams such as Kiss Our Blarney Stones and Alternative Facts made their presence felt as well as newcomers like The Bonus Bunch and
