Does Anybody Really Know What Song This Is?
Travis

Hey, everyone! Havin' great nights at CharlieHoopers as always. Seriously, this place is the best. Thanks to everyone who came out and made it a wonderful time.   What did we learn last night?

We learned that Nicolas Cage spends too much time at the slots. We learned that they should have kept Lupercalia going. And finally, we learned that our shithead president has always been a shithead.   Congrats to the top 3 teams tonight! Article Three 6 Mafia came in second place with 80 points, right behind Master

EU is or EU Ain't My Baby
Travis

Another crazy-fun night at Charlie Hooper's! Thanks to all of you that came out. It's absolutely insane how packed we can get that place. Lots of great people.   What did we learn last night? Loads of things. We learned of the kind of company the UK will be keeping when they ultimately leave the EU. We learned that it only takes a little makeup for someone to look like Charlize Theron. And finally, we learned that Elmo just needs to shut up.   Congrats to the top teams last night! Two tying for 2nd place with 57 points a piece (Kitten Mittens and Uncles with Benefits), and two teams tying for 1st place with 60 points a piece (XXX: The Return of Scott

This Guy Israeli Not Funny
Travis

Hey everyone! Another fantastic night at Charlie Hooper's! Great food, great staff, and very fantastic crowd. Always a pleasure to host here. Thanks to all the wonderful people who made it happen.   "So what did we learn last night?", you must be asking yourself. Well, let me tell you: We learned that internet-ers ask the worst questions. We learned who we can finally blame for the Kardashians. We learned that EVERYONE has seen Cool Runnings. And finally, we learned that we are in desperate need of more umlaut bands.   Congrats to our top 3 teams last night! Travioli in 3rd with 83 points, We're Crab People Now in 2nd with 85 points, and Beware the

Fillin' In
Travis

Hey everybody! Travis here, filling in for Dave at Charlie Hooper's. Dave's the proud new owner of a baby boy, so congrats, Dave! We had a fantastic, packed night last night. Thanks to everyone who made it out for making it such a great time.   So, what did we learn last night? We learned that volcanoes are not particulary bias towards anyone. That musicians and addictions go hand in hand. That George Lucas is good for about a 3-movie span. And finally, we learned that there are actually a few women who like "My Little Pony." Weird, right?   Congrats to the top three teams. Two tied for 2nd with 73 points a piece, Uncles with Benefits and Kitten Mittens.

Farting around
Dave

Most of the weird questions are traps. They just are. I want to write about the weather, and how it started snowing right at the end of quiz, and how New Year’s resolutions are dumb, and how changing your team name is a bad idea, but instead I am going to write about the quiz in general. If we give you two answers and one seems unlikely, choose the unlikely one. This is almost always the right answer. Or, use a little common sense. Try to think about what is likely. How does a lobster get enough are to fart? How? So, that is my little tip. We’re Crab people now won. They are winning consistently now. I believe it is their like of a certain show that puts

An Education
Dave

I always forget about how schools and the educational system in the US impact everything so much. You would think, having grown up in the US and having attended educational pursuits that eventually earned me an advanced degree that I would remember that schools go on break and basically release students and teachers in to the wild. Nope. I am the person that every summer says “Where did all these children come from?” I was thinking about this at quiz last night. There were a ton of people at quiz and the bar was packed. Schools. That is where the college aged people are coming from. I get it now. Poe Montana won last night by a whole point. Apparently they

Santas
Dave

Secret Santa is easy. It is about how much you give monetarily, it is about the quality of thought behind the gifts. Find out what you can about the person, and get them things that you think they would like.  Do not get them things that you think they would like if you were them. That is dumb. If you know they like beer and you like beer too, but you really like Belgium Dubbels, then maybe you should do some research into what kind of beer they like. Don’t just buy them a random type of beer. People who like wine, beer, whiskey, do not usually like all types. If someone says they like polar bears and candles, get them a t shirt and a damn candle. It is not hard. Ask someone they

(ok)
Dave

Someone almost hit my car last night with a much more expensive car. I mean, my car is a cheap car, likely worth 1/8th to 1/10th the cost of their car. I think this man thought that I intentionally cut him off and he would be teaching me a lesson by trying to run me off the road, but that is not the case.  He just reinforced my opinion that older men who drive fancy cars are compensating for something and drive like jerks. I should have just let him hit me, because it would have been his fault and then I could have laughed at his fancy car’s front bumper.  I needed to get to quiz, so I just let him run me off the road. He literally ran me off the road.

Snow makes it so hard
Dave

It snowed yesterday in Kansas City. It was not a big deal. I mean it was a dusting by all accounts. It mainly just stuck to cars. That being stated, annually people freak out about this. Why do people collectively forget about things like this? Unless you are 17-18 this is not your first time driving in the snow. It is not difficult. This happens with the first big spring rains too. Maybe people get I a habit for how they drive to work an variation on that habit is so jarring that people’s brains just freak out. I don’t know. Luckily, though it was very cold, the quiz was still packed. Oh, OK, one more thing. I have long hair now. I do this, because I like having long hair

Changes
Dave

I would like to think I am pretty good with change. I mean, in the very least I am adaptable. I was a Peace Corps volunteer for Pete’s sake. (Who is Pete?) I am used to showing up to places unprepared and then making due with having to work with faulty equipment in front of a crow. This is why I was not fazed last night when the room setup was different and my PA system had a glitch. No big deal. I got it all sorted out rather quickly. No one got hurt. 2-3 minutes later, everything was good as new. I think more people should be like this, because it helps. The ability to roll with the punches and keep on keeping on, makes one a more pleasant individual.

Yelling
Dave

The Quiz was full! I thought it would take over a month for people to catch on to the new time, but I was wrong. All the tables were taken last night. Some new teams, and a lot of regulars. I thought I was going to actually be done in exactly 2 hours despite the full house, but I screwed that up during round six. I get distracted sometimes and talk to people. Despite that, it was one of the most efficient quizzes I have ever hosted. I hope everyone had a good time. We will not have quiz next week. I will be in STL getting over served with my family, and I am assuming you will all be doing the same. Stay Safe. Uncles with Benefits finally won. Good Job. They

It's all an act

{Stage opens on a small bar setting with a PA setup in the corner. People sit at tables, a waitress shuffles about on errands. The QM stands before a table of 21-15 year old bar patrons.} QM: Are you here for the Quiz? Young bar patron 1: No QM: Well, since you are here and you have to listen to my voice anyway, you might as well play. It will be fun (QM hands over score sheet , visual round and pencils) Young bar patron 1: Ok QM: Awesome! So here is how you do it, this is visual round you answer those questions based of this sheet (hands over visual round in a flourish). It is round five, so turn it in with round four.

Waiting
Dave

Sometimes you got to wait for the good or the bad. Such is life. I waited all day yesterday for it to rain on me. I heard thunder around noon. The sky darkened again at 3:30. No rain. I get halfway through quiz and the sky opens up. It finally rained, albeit briefly. Apparently, a couple of sports teams and thousands of fans waited years for their teams to win a series of games in order to establish a world champion. I am assuming, one team won and the other lost. So, there must be mixed emotions about that. Beware the Bandersnatch won in a landslide at the quiz with just one point under

Dance Dance Dance
Dave

I would have sworn the turnout at the quiz would have been awful. I was all prepared for like 3 teams scowling at me while trying to watch the Cubs. I psyched myself up for it with some anecdotes that I could say to entertain the measly crowd to the best of my ability. I thought that the time change from 7:30 to 7 would be a big deal the first week it occurred, but I was wrong. A bunch of people showed up on time. It was great. I still said my stupid jokes, but that was probably needless and maybe unwarranted. It is a compulsion. We almost had a dance off last night. I was so excited to have a tie between Beware the Bandersnatch and His Fiancé
