May the 4th Be With You
The Fish Chick

HELLLLOOO MY PEOPLE! It has been so long since we last spoke, really, and I can’t believe we let ourselves grow apart like that…. I kid. Congratulations Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Travel to DC to Assasinate Jimmy Stewart and Interrupt a Fillibuster on winning first place and may you never make me repeat such a long team name again. Ever. Seriously. F’real. Anyway, we’ve talked about it SO MANY TIMES but May 4, 2017 is Star Wars day and YOU HAVE TO PREREGISTER FOR THE STAR WARS QUIZ. If you’re reading this blog post, you literally had to go to geekswhodrink.com where you had a pop-up that said SIGN UP FOR THE STAR WARS QUIZ. So I can’t

To Innaprops or Not to Innaprops
The Fish Chick

Today’s lesson on being-a-better-person will feature team name selections when playing a pub quiz. Sure, we have all kinds of inappropriate material to use; mockery, satire, news headlines, fake news headlines, 45. But there are lines to be drawn as far as taking a team name too far. Now, I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that a man ending his own life would be a thing that I would have to explain to quizzers isn’t an appropriate theme for a team name but here we are. There were two teams last night that crossed that line and you know who you are. You also know that it was bad because after I read your names, THE ENTIRE BAR SHAMED YOU. This isn’t just

Gyros? Geeros? Hyros? Heroes?
The Fish Chick

Gyros are a delicious Greek dish that we in the US are incapable of pronouncing correctly. I have done some research; translation: I asked my colleague who is from Greece. Apparently it is not “gear-o” like you all scolded me for last night. And it is definitely not “jie-ro.” An acceptable pronunciation would be “year-o.” And even that is wrong, because it’s more like “yPHLEGMear-o.” And I just can’t reproduce that sound. In Greek, this makes a lot more sense because the letters are slightly different. They do not have a “g” as we do. Instead they have a gamma, which most of the time makes a “gah” sound

Planning, Parenthood, QFAC
The Fish Chick

You’ve seen it all over your Facebook, in the news, and its currently being argued about in congress; funding and Planned Parenthood. You may have also noticed that GWD will be having a country-wide Quiz for a Cause coming to a city near you to help raise money for PP. But what are the facts? Does Planned Parenthood really help with women’s (and men’s) health? Or are they simply an abortion factory come to destroy an unborn generation? Let’s start with the hottest topic: abortion. That’s right, I said it twice so far. For whatever reason, this word is deemed taboo. But one must remember that there are many reasons for terminating a pregnancy and abortion

5am is a Bitch...
UrbanStatue

Well well well, Joe my old friend...we meet again.  It was nice to make a One Night Only appearance at JSM this week when B needed the night off.  Anything for my girl! Tonight we had some fun rounds on everything from Travel and Culture to Beetlejuice...or Beetle juice? Or...Betelgeuse?  Or..all three?   Susan B. Manthony led the pack all night with steady scores and an early joker but it was AKA The Other Other New England who sneaked in from behind with a jokered round 7 (worth 16 points this week) and an excellent Round 8 score.   We heckled some loud drunk people

Glorified Home Fundraiser
The Fish Chick

Well it was a good night filled with some hilarious answers. Apparently none of you really know who Fifth Harmony is, assume that Penis is the only viable manly last name, and Can’t Stop the Feeling would be appropriate to chant at a women against sexual violence rally. Good job, folks! Congrats to Alcoholic Synonymous on their triumphant return and Sideburns for being all over rad.   Time for some serious advice from your QM, your confidant, and your best friend. If you and your significant other ever decide that getting married is a thing you want to do, do me, and yourself a favor. ELOPE. Seriously, throw a dart at a map

March Moving Madness!
The Fish Chick

Oh hey there, quizzers! So glad to see you last night! Y’know, a trouble I’ve noticed plaguing many a folk recently is the painful task of moving. You have to find a new place, have two spare limbs and an infant sacrifice to reserve it plus first and last month’s rent, and that’s just the beginning. Because then you have to physically move which is the worst part of changing up your living arrangements, right? Infant sacrifices are easy but packing? Unpacking? Woof, the horror of the thought shakes me to my core. But worry not! I come with tips for packing and making your move much less stressful. As you are packing your belongings in a

ARE YOU GOING TO PAX?!
The Fish Chick

Okay, so we had a lot of folks excited for PAX East. What is PAX? It’s 3 days of pure gaming joyful bliss. And not just console video games but indie games, tabletop games, games that you didn’t realize could possibly exist. Need a new set of dice? There are at least 1000 varieties to choose from. Want to test out some gaming headphones before you buy them? Literally every brand is there for your hearing pleasure. Maybe you want to pitch a game? There’s at least 3 panels where you can do that and get some constructive criticism from folks who have been there and done that! But if this is your first PAX, or you’re not quite sure how to tackle the plethora of activities

What is a Lie?
The Fish Chick

Lying. It’s a fault that is considered broad and abundant among the human race. I mean, let’s be honest, it happens all the time; for example if I told you, “giraffes lay eggs.” That would be a lie. Giraffes most certainly do not lay eggs, a fact that is widely known. A fact that I know and by telling you something different is a lie. Maybe that one’s too hard so let’s try another example. Let’s imagine that Bob & Nancy are dating. Bob previously dated a different girl, let’s call her Gertrude. Nancy is the kind of insecure person who has to know all of Bob’s business and she suspects that Bob is still talking to Gertrude. She

Que embarazada
The Fish Chick

Remember last night? I know, it was long ago, but I goofed. I had Jane on the brain and I said that Jane Eyre was written by Jane Austen. And as soon as it left my lips, I knew I  had goofed and I was pretty darn embarrassed. But that is not near the level of embarrassment I’m about to share with you. Derek and I have been on many a cruise and therefore many an excursion. Twice or perhaps three times now, we’ve gone parasailing. In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, let me describe it to you. They strap you into what is essentially a parachute tied to the back of a boat and let the wind take you higher and higher until the boat you were previously

Sappy Blog is Sappy
The Fish Chick

MY PEOPLE! How I missed you last week while I sat in a lounge chair, in the sun, drink in hand, reading a novel…. I’m not convincing you, am I? Well, trust me, I did. Your quizzing is my life’s essence. It was a great night and kudos to In Soviet Russia, Trump Donalds YOU.   In other news, I feel I should remind you that I am going to be doing that whole getting married thing. Like, hella soon.

That's Nobody's Business But the Turks
Travis

I rolled back into Joe Sent Me one last time for Brittany, and boy did we have a packed house. Nineteen teams made their presence felt at quiz! I'm not sure whether or not it was the upcoming snowstorm to blame -- we had our fair share of teachers, yours truly included -- but whatever it was, I surely wasn't complaining. We got a little help from Captain Obvious, got sticky and stony with some songs, closed a little early with Mamet and GEICO plots, put on the red light for a round on Amsterdam, went straight to video with some movie flops, met you halfway with some science words, chained some movie titles together, and plunged into the random knowledge

Just Call Me P. Star
The Fish Chick

Quizzers! I’m still reeling from that incredible dance off we ended with. It was a great night at good ol’ Joe. Congratulations to The Magnificent Seven for winning the honorary first place and being good enough to people to admit they had 7 people. AKA: Too Much Cake became our true 1st place winner and after the dance off Said No One Ever defeated We Drink and We Know Things for 2nd. Really, though, where’d you learn those sweet moves gentlemen?                I’m desperately avoiding mentioning 45.

Superbowl LI; The Pats vs. That Other Team
The Fish Chick

It was so tempting to blog this week about the obvious. But I’m going to do my best to spread out the serious, because you all get enough about that in your every day news(feeds). But I will say this for this week: we’re only 5 days in. But other things that have happened this week include our Patriots. On Sunday they became AFC Champs yet again in a game that had some serious plays. For example LeGarette Blount carried 7 Steelers defenders for 7 yards. Let’s just break that down, shall we? Blount is 6’ and weighs about 250 lbs. Despite William Gay trying to grab for his feet, Blount pushes on. He then pushes against Mike Mitchell, Artie Burns, Allen Cortez,

Thanks, Obama
The Fish Chick

Alright, guys. I’m going to have to pause the fun we normally have together for a step into the World of Serious. And I’m not trying to be political or partisan, except that I won't be able to avoid that, I’m just trying to be thankful. Because I am the most thankful for the past 8 years. So this one goes out to Barry, My President, Barack Hussein Obama II. Dear Mr. President,  Sir, you have been and probably will be the most influential president of my life. In fact, I was only 16 years old when you took office. I had never imagined the amount of change that would occur in this country under your leadership. With your guidance policies such as Don’t

A Bug's Life
The Fish Chick

As a Disney fan, it is my obligation to tell you that A Bug’s Life was leaps and bounds a better film than “Antz” and I’m sure that most of you would agree. But did you know that, like many of the DreamWorks v. PIXAR productions, there was quite a bit of drama surrounding the two films? The year is 1995 and PIXAR is soaring on the success of “Toy Story,” you know before the 2 sequels and 2 mini specials. The team is working hard on “A Bug’s Life,” an upcoming film about adventure, the monarchy of a smaller nation, and the masses standing against the tyranny and bullying of a larger nation. The team originally included Jeffrey Katzenberg
