Canada Day? More like CAN'Tada Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SnarlFu

!!!!!!!!!!   !!!!!   !   How refreshing it is to hand both prizes tonight to first-time winners at Joe Sent Me! Not that I don't love my regular winners, but a little competition goes a long way.   The Breakdown: Premium Scante and Mustache Riders spent the entire quiz neck and neck—their scores for the first four rounds were identical—but the one was finally able to edge out the other. One point wins (and losses) are the best because they force you to dwell on that one question that could have gone one way but ended up going the

So many humans...
SnarlFu

Where did you all come from??? I haven't seen so many bipeds in one place since Jurassic Park 3! I mean, I know the power was out in Somerville, and I'm glad you all chose to spend your medieval evening at the Pub Quiz, but where have allayall been all my life!? Please come back next week.   The Breakdown: This was a hot one! Below Me had it going early on the strength of an aced and jokered R2, but they couldn't keep up once our focused shifted from pop tunes about SUVs to car bombs & karma. AKA picked up the slack, quietly fucking shit up all night long and capping it off with 15 points in the random

AKA We Got More Points Than You
SnarlFu

The Breakdown: Fuhgeddaboudit. No chance. Tough to get one on a team that jokered a 16-pointer. When it comes to the Pub Quiz, there's really no substitute for knowing your musicals. If you know that Knight of the Woeful Countenance is a number from Man of La Mancha, you're well on your way to a rousing evening of ass-kicking and name-taking. While AKA wasn't really challenged for the top spot, we still saw a hearty battle for second among Dope Honda, Beth Star, and A Stranger in the Alps, but that particular prize went to Bernie Sanders Fried Chicken,

To The Wire
SnarlFu

Not the show, although goddamn, that's a good show. I'm talking about the grit, the dead heat between a barful of quizzers who are gonna win, goddammit, no matter what I ask em. I could barely see through all the tension. It might as well have been the Baltimore underworld of the aforementioned show. I count myself lucky to have made it through.   The Breakdown: While Tater Parade led all night and saved the win, it was a very closely contested quiz all night through. At each other's throats, ye were this eve. So close I even had to do math to decide the correct answer for the tiebreaker question we used

The jame's Bond. Names Bond.
SnarlFu

What with international intrigue, political leaders (and hacks), and beer, I hope I made you all feel like real players tonight. Like James Bonds. If I didn't, just let me know and I'll play more Bond themes next week.   The Breakdown: AKA took this one and didn't give it back. They were the only team to joker R2 (and one of only two teams to score above 10 on that round), so they took an early lead and no team could catch em. The closest anyone came was In 3rd Place, who hit their target spot on. I feel like they're getting better at it, too... time will tell.   The

Two sides to every Tater
SnarlFu

    The Breakdown: Good one, ladies and gents! Close one, well contested. Enough of this blowout nonsense—I like my quizzes to make people want to cry because they can't stand the intensity of a dead heat. Joe and the Floozies made a good run and plowed all the way up the standings to within a point of the win, but couldn't quite seal the deal. Taterapox were able to wrest the lead away in the midgame on the strength of some good old fashioned well-rounded quizzing after Fast & Furious and In 3rd

SnarlFu

You have no idea how long I've been waiting to describe a Dirty Sanchez on a microphone in a crowded bar. Thank you all for bearing witness; you may now attest to the fact that I have in fact completed my primary goal in life. It is finished.   Tune in next week for the Angry Dolphin.   The Breakdown: Mad Men: Beyond Thunderdome ftw; acing rounds

Who's on Second?
SnarlFu

The Breakdown: These are the moments we quiz for. There they were, not even In 3rd Place, languishing so hard that half their team decided to beat the rush and scatter. Little did they know that every other team in the room was too busy bombing round 7 to hold onto their lead. In one of the most photogenic phinishes in phub quiz phistory, we ended regulation quiz time with a three-way second place tie, sandwiched between first and fifth by only a point on either side. Some quick (but careful) calculations led Chick-fil-atio

Okay, back to American is the only culture that matters
SnarlFu

That is, provided you got enough tequila yesterday. If you didn't, that's okay, they drink tequila in Texas too.   The Breakdown: AKA with the comeback! Joe and the Floozies aced and jokered R2 tonight and managed to hold their lead through a 5-point visual rd, but couldn't stay afloat through the random knowledge round, and poning ensued.

Nonsense? Mon sense.
SnarlFu

The comeback kids come back! The bum crack skids smoke crack! And duly noted are squatters' dibs to have nudely doted on daughters' squids.   Moving on...   The Breakdown: Tater Atsume and X (this is pronounced “cat butt”) got shaken up in the audio round, Tear Down This Wall—maybe they blocked the whole collapse of the Soviet Union from memory in hopes of deluding the capitalist machine from their daily perception—but were not to be deterred. They kept at it, and ended up on top of one another, and the standings. Hand it to The Worst “The

Erf day sucka
SnarlFu

Today is your only chance to appreciate the environment without being called an environmentalist. At least, until the ice and the animals and New York and Miami and Bangladesh are gone and we can't breathe outside anymore. Enjoy it.   The Breakdown: Floozies victorious! A jokered 15-pt R2 propelled them to the top of the standings and they didn't look back. Didn't need to. AKA crept closer and closer as the quiz wore on, but not even missing half of the second audio round could displace the foxy Floozies from the lead.   The Comic Relief: Thank you for the tip... I was

Is there death after taxes?
SnarlFu

I would ask if there are taxes after death, but that may be the most unpleasant question considered by modern man.     Related question: how many deaths does it take to get to the center of taxes? The world truly may never know. I doubt the answer is three. Or even a'three.   The Breakdown: The story tonight was all Real Taters of Middlesex County, who missed only two questions in the first seven rounds, ending up only eight points shy of the vaunted perfect score. My hat is off.   The Comic Relief: This one goes to Tight End? More like Wide Receiver

Just sayin.
SnarlFu

Good day, geeks. Pleasure quizzing with you this evening. Movies, music, diseases, Natalie Portman in tears... you know your greek letters, I'll give you that, but you may want to work on your sports history. Just sayin.   The Breakdown: Joe and The Floozies strike again! And hard, this time. Due to One Brian Too Many's heavy roster (they were actually some three Brians too many), the next-highest qualifying score was a full fifteen points behind those foxy floozies. Certainly not intimidated by vocal jazz, they aced (and jokered) their Gatsbyesque round 2, and it was smooth sailing from there.   The

Tater Fakers and Kevin Bacon
SnarlFu

Of COURSE tater tots go with Bacon. I can't believe I've never had those two things on the same plate before, but now that I've had them in the same thought space it's only a matter of time.   I thought the spud squad was rolling balls deep in mash tonight, but one third of taters were fakers. It's actually one of my favorite things when teams make fun of other teams' names, especially when it fuels the fire of competition. The taters get nice and crispy that way, too.   The Breakdown: Close one! A three-way tie at the end of R6 between the (original) potato people and the Floozies gave way

Tight. Very tight.
SnarlFu

Remember when “tight” meant “cool”? That was a good one.   The Breakdown: Joe and the Floozies strike back! They led the pack all night on the strength of a jokered, 14-pt. R2 effort, and didn't give it up. Roommates, 2ce Removed engineered a strong bid for the win but came up one point shy (and one point losses are my favorite because they can be blamed on any question but are always blamed on THAT ONE QUESTION). They also introduced me to the practice of abbreviating the word “twice” with a 2. Why have I never seen that!? Thank you. Wrestlemania

Too many necks
SnarlFu

The phrase “neck and neck” just doesn't do this quiz justice. The phrase “necking” comes closer, especially since when it was over I walked out of Joe Sent Me feeling like a middle schooler leaving a closet after making out with a stranger (you all played “seven minutes in heaven” with strangers, right? Much better that way), but it's still not quite there.   The Breakdown: Bathroom Confessionals spent almost the entire quiz riding up high in the standings by virtue of an aced and jokered R2. They were joined (and by joined I mean TIED, they were TIED for first for pretty much the ENTIRE QUIZ)
