Secretary? Nah. President.
SnarlFu

Ain't no ugly ass white man get his face on no legal motherfuckin tender cept he president. Final word on the subject? I think so.   The Breakdown: With the field this wide and clear, I thought I might have smelled a bit more blood than usual. Or maybe it was ozone, or testosterone, or brimstone, or sex. Or something. In any event, yall did not disappoint. Sexy Jeff Goldblum held down the lead all night despite a rousing good comeback effort by Sideburns that landed them a point away from nabbing the crown. Some excellent jokering, that. Come back next week and try for the gold!   The

Bonus Bonus Bonus
SnarlFu

From long-distance bonus winners to surprise bonus prizes to bonus appearances of Mean Girls to the possible insertion of a bonus silent 'e' into the word bonus, making it a group sex pun, to the debatable overuse and hopeful subsequent loss of meaning of the word bonus, there were plenty of things to be excited about at Joe Sent Me tonight.   The Breakdown: Quite a good many eager, slavering, pointthirsty quizzers were ye heading into R4 tonight. It may have had something to do with the accessibility of R2, which both The Floozies and our winners, AKA, aced and jokered, and on which several others among

Happiest Birthday, Kendall!
SnarlFu

All the geeks in the Bridge turned out to wish Kendall a happy birthday, but only one team came out on top... Sounds like a pub quiz!   The Breakdown: Joe and the Floozies ran away with this one. After jokering their 15-pt. R2 effort, catching up would have been a tall order for anyone. Sexy Jeff Goldblum, however, was not anyone. They held strong, and came back from midfield to take second. If it weren't for those damn rivers, they would have had a good chance to tie or win. But those damn rivers. Dunno what the hell we're doing naming a river Missouri if its headwaters are in Montana.

SnarlFu

  Well hello there! I done missed yall sumthin fierce. Great to see so many familiar (and not a few new) faces out there. Please let's prepare for yet another year of some great pub quizzin.   The Breakdown: Now here's something familiar. AKA took it down handily. A good, well-rounded quiz can only be won by a good, well-rounded team. You might know your geography, but unless you brought your movie buff, your couch potato, and your music nerd, you're in troubs. Props to Joe and the Floozies, who made a good run but stumbled on the TV audio round (no couch potato on that team!). Props

The Lime Machine
Josh

You know what the best part of subbing at a new venue is? I can use all the same old jokes and they're totally fresh again... in fact, this joke about recycled jokes is recycled. Meta inside jokes -- they're all the rage in the dimension I come from. That's right, I'm an interdimensional traveller. But unfortunately not yet a time traveller... As promised, once I get that sussed I will bring my video camera along and finally film the porn this planet was designed to create: "Jurassic Pork". Mega Dildos to you guys for incorrectly answering with that gem and of course the legendary: "King Dong". Both are better pornos than "The Lust World". In the Internet age there's no excuse for shitty porn

AKA Ending the Year on a High Note

Hi Quizzers!   2015 is done and gone and we had a great year in quiz here at Joe Sent Me.  We lived, we laughed, we loved...we Zanca 'd we AKA'd we Bent Over the A-Town Floozies with Joe and we ate a lot of Taters, tho not so much lately. Tonight was my final quiz at JSM as my long-term sub is over with the imminent return of Alex in 2016--bigger and badder than ever.  It was a great 3 months and I intend to be back, occasionally joining the Floozies for a bit of fun.

Twas the night before Christmas Eve And All through the house Not a quizzer had shown up It was quiet as a mouse   My sound was set up by the bathrooms with care In hopes regular quizzers soon would be there Perhaps they were nestled all snug in their beds? With visions of Quiz Bowls dancing in their heads?   The servers were restless--there were two of them there The owner was Grinchy--saying "Cancel this" with an arm flair When by the door there arose such a clatter I sprang from my stool to see what was the matter When what to my wondering eyes should appear But

Gonorrhea! **CLAP CLAP CLAP** I always get excited about that.  I mean...not the disease...the...reaction......from..the...audience.  ANYWAY! AKA has been waiting in the wings for a few weeks, ready to steal the first place spot and tonight, they DID.  In fact, they clobbered the other teams.  Go AKA Moonlight Pinata!  Tonight's Round 2 of Jesus paradoies proved the easiest for our teams with all teams jokering and scoring an average of 13 points.  Unfortunately Round 3's Real or Shit round on Rehab programs proved too difficult with an average score of 3.  Next week

A great night at Joe Sent Me with a bunch of new faces!  Always fun when we start playing and those teams who initially declined playing run over and say "Can we still play??" YES!  QUIZ FOR ALL! Tonight we had a whole round on Billy West who I didn't know much about honestly...so here's some awesome facts about him: He was raised in Boston's Roslindale Neighborhood (hey! that's where I live!) He worked at WBCN (R.I.P.) He is one of the few voice actors who can replicate Mel Blanc's Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck voices HE'S EVERYWHERE! As we found out tonight, the man voices everything from the Red M&M

Happy Birthday, Virginia!
UrbanStatue

YAAAAAAAAY BIRTHDAYS! One of our regular quizzers, Virginia—yup, we share a name and it’s so rare and awesome to find someone with your old fashioned name who is under the age of 85—well it was her birthday! She had a lovely pink feather boa, too! She’s part of Joe Bent Over the A-Town Floozies and some of her friends decided to surprise her by naming their team Virginia’s Birthday Suit. That got quite the laughs at the end of my Scoring Break after Round 3!   Both teams competed valiantly, with Virginia’s Birthday Suit coming in first by one point. I love watching the fun competition

It's Turkey Lurkey Time!
UrbanStatue

I LOVE THANKSGIVING!   It’s one of my favorite holidays what with food, friends, family, and tons of “Fuck, dude…” moments.   Every year something gets burned, someone gets too drunk and we eat way past our limits.   For many years I wasn’t so lucky on Thanksgiving. I came out when I was 19 and my father kicked me out. Yes, it’s sad and we are much better now 13 years later. I had to find places to go and families to take me in. One year I helped cook for 30 other “homeless” LGBT kids with two gay guys who hosted every year. They invited any kid who didn’t want to go home out of shame

Good evening aca-quizzers!  I hope you enjoyed my brief stint in the world of microphone-less quiz hosting.  It's fun, right?   So happy to see all these teams come out to play at JSM! There was a variation in standings as the quiz went on but the winners of the night were regulars AKA (who gave themselves the moniker of T-Day Minus 8) who beat out newbies Carson's Cartographers in a tie-breaker round: 5-4. Major shout out to The Hateful 7 (plus Carolyn) who were able to name all 6 members of Wu-Tang.  Even tho they had too many players to be eligible

Happy Veteran's Day, all. I hope that you had a few moments to honor those who have served the country. I had the honor of subbing for Ginny, and came all the way from a totally different county... Essex! Many quizzers didn't actually know where Beverly was, so I told them that they should come visit the Lucky Dog (my regular venue) after going to one of Essex county's famous beaches, Crane or Singing happen to be my faves. Hard to imagine that there will be beautiful summer days in the future when you look at how dismal it is now... 45 and rainy.  We had NINETEEN teams tonight. I was stunned. It was great to meet some new quizzers, many were so helpful with the sound system and

It was a cold and rainy night last night, but that didn’t stop 15 teams from coming out for a humble Geeks Who Drink quiz. I had the distinct pleasure of hosting a quiz at Joe Sent Me. And my, was it well worth the trip. In the rain. Without an umbrella.   It was so great to finally make it out to Joe Sent Me though. Over the years I’ve heard tell of the incredibly competitive teams that regularly quiz at Joe Sent Me. Needless to say I was not at all surprised to find out that one person from one of the teams was selected as one of the ringers for the winning team. Although, from what I can recall, this year y’all didn’t really have any representation

Once upon a time there was a girl, whose only goal in life was to leave the great state of Texas. She dreamt and hoped and prayed and wished that she could escape and move to some big fancy city in the north. But dreaming and hoping and praying and wishing don't make things happen. Thank goodness the little girl was smart enough to figure that much out. So the little girl decided that the best course of action was to turn into a super nerd who was awesome at everything and somehow she finagled an escape plan to Boston, which is where she remains to this very day. And she doesn't dream or hope or pray or wish for things to just happen, she simply kicks ass and takes names, but is really, really nice about it and gets shit done. The end.

My body has been overrun by the sniffles and sneezes and achy throat plague.  Thanks to my quizzers for bearing with me and being quiet enough that I didn’t have to yell.  Tonight’s quizzers were REALLY on point this week!  We had several perfect round showings by our top two teams Joe Bent Over the A-Town Floozies and Bob Loblaw’s Law Blog Bloggers.  Our winners were Joe by 5 points after a perfect Round 8 showing which almost NEVER happens.  All the more reason, you need to go to Quiz Bowl, Joe!
