It Was Nelly
Quizler

Way to go, [poop emoji] (I can’t actually put the emoji because I don’t have that fancy new Mac that got rid of the function keys) for scoring more than 90 points. A special feat. Congrats to Honorable Ticks for cheating to get to second, and to Werewolves not Swearwolves for taking home the 2nd place prize, as usual. Also, congrats to one of our quizzers for becoming a NH state rep! Enjoy that extra $1/year you’re making! Or is it $100? Make us proud either way. If you’re here, way to survive the first day of snow driving of the season. Since you’re out spending

Awesome night, guys. Congrats to Rick Astley: Karaoke Flow for getting first place and for thinking Karoke is a word. I mean at least make it Kareoke or something. But their name is only one of like 4 that I fixed grammar- and spelling-wise tonight. I was just in that kind of mood. And congrats to I Blew My Payload, who are back where they feel most comfortable, second place. My best friend from college is from Corning, NY. We went to the glass museum when I visited once. It’s pretty cool, like the museum of science. But did you know that if you have friends who blow glass, they most likely make marijuana pieces. I don’t

So yes, it’s tomorrow. It turns out even though only Corey of you bought me a shot (THANKS COREY!) a few other bar patrons who like me for more than my quizmaster skills bought me shots. What I’m trying to say is I didn’t think I should write the blog drunk, but only because I knew I’ve had time today. Obviously I’ve written it drunk before. Maybe usually. Maybe i need to sober up a little more before driving to Thanksgiving dinner.

Brady Bunch Vacation at the Grand Canyon
Quizler

Big night tonight. We had teams jumping all over the place. But Sandwich Meat Solutions ended up unsurprisingly taking it all. They didn’t even joker their best round. Oh that hurts. But it’s okay because second place, Not the Sharpest Penis in the Fuck This Metaphor may just have taken it had they jokered their best round. Oops. I even double checked with them, so they kinda deserve the loss. They did, along with a few other teams, knock out our usual second place winner, who went with Secretary of State Scott Baio. If only they’d gone with a “Charles in Charge” joke. So close. How’s

Thank you to the teams that came out tonight to share a beer and educate themselves with good ol’ quizzing. You are all winners tonight. But mostly Goddammit You Fucking Idiots are winners because they got first place with a hefty score. Their worst round was the visual, which is strange because c’mon. But who at this point hasn’t seen “Zootopia”? How did you vote without seeing that movie? Anyway, our permanent second placers, Hello darkness My old friend kept their seats.

Every High School Is a Pubic School, Really

Congrats to Literally Anything for their first first place win! And such a high score too! They were worried about their round 8 but kinda nailed it. They also had to change their name at the last second because they didn’t want the world to know that they’re bronies. Oops, secret is out, guys! Of course our perennial second place winners Anthony Weiner Joke did pretty badass too. They might’ve won it had they come up with an actual joke for their name.

Guys, I feel bad for Trump’s supporters for getting hoodwinked so badly. SCENE: GOLF COURSE, 2009, TRUMP AND THE CLINTONS AT THE 7TH HOLE. HILLARY: Donnie, my boy, can you do me a solid? You’ll get tons of exposure and maybe even a network TV deal out of it. DONALD: Okay, what do you need me to do? HILLARY: Become the GOP candidate. Don’t bone up on policy or history or anything.

Thanks for coming out tonight for a little debate pre game! I hope you all got good and drunk to watch the live entertainment nonsense. Everyone keeps talking about how there’s no way there are still undecided voters out there but I know one! My coworker hates Trump the person but likes his “policies” better than Clinton’s. I mean obviously that’s nonsense, but she’s a real human who doesn’t know what she’s going to do yet. She might write someone in. I’ve heard a few people say that and it angers my pussy so much.

Congrats to Cousin Eddie who won first place without anyone else DQing. They did it all on their own with the best round 8 of the night and a perfect jokered round 2. Very exciting stuff. Congrats also to second place, Latex Too: Electric Bugaloo for the only team to get all 8 in round 3. I’m so proud, guys. Also, the Stone Church welcomes your feedback on the new menu so bring it.

Congrats on making a Finn Tutuola reference and a nod to Arnold Palmer in the same name. First place was Dan’d if I Do, Tran’d if I Don’t, and maybe it was their change of name that got them out of second place at last.
