Forget Jon Bernthal, I'm The Real Pun-isher
Nick Danger

  If there’s one thing that makes my heart grow three sizes in one night, it’s a full quiz. And hoo boy was it ever a packed house last night! Nineteen teams rolled out to Devil’s Advocate last night, and nineteen teams brought their A-game. They were on point. Y’know, like…points. It was a high-scoring game is what I’m saying. Here, just, just…just never mind. Check it out, we learned:   Ray Guy should have died, not Steve Irwin.   Somebody, somewhere fucked up real hard. Only excuse I can think of as to why Motörhead isn’t in the Rock ‘n’ Roll

The Charge of the Geek Brigade
Nick Danger

  Life is short, and time is fleet So with an int’rest rather neat I’ve decided to complete A rather cunning, tasty feat I’ve melded in a brilliant fashion Twofold of my fav’rite passions Blended in a unique fashion To create an interaction Both my loves forever true Til my fukken’ face is blue Delivering right unto you Handsome quizzes, poems too Although the lofty prize appealed And thundering of quizzing pealed Only tenfold teams did yield Upon the barroom battlefield With sharpened pencils they did fight Throughout

In the Pursuit of Knowledge
Nick Danger

Let me tell ya, last night’s quiz was a learning experience. I learned about life. I learned about love. It was truly memorable. And not even in that “you had to be there” sort of sense. Here’s some real-world, applicable-ass shit I learned last night:   There’s a thing called “Girls” and a person named Lena Dunham created it. Holy shit.   There’s a very real (albeit tenuous) thread between Prince and Toby Keith. This, of course, only serves to bind them both closer the Kevin Bacon.   Mac from “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” has a first name. And it isn’t

Apparently Not Wilder Than Death Itself
Nick Danger

Hello again, adoring blog fans! How’ve ya been? That’s fascinating! Well, in return for that wonderful borefest I’m sure you just dropped on me, I’m going to tell you about some of the wiggity-wiggity-wild and zany things I learned at this week’s quiz!   JFK’s mom can be easily compared to an old map.   Even just a smidgeon of a snippet of a Montel Jordan song can bring out the inner freak in each and every one of us.   People call what Tom Cruise does “acting”. I’m pretty sure that he just does what he himself would do in any given situation in any movie that he stars in.   Jesse

Butterbeer? I Never Touched Her Beer!
Nick Danger

So, yesterday’s quiz was my very first time hosting a themed quiz. That might not seem like that big of a deal, but playing in a Star Wars themed quiz 2 years ago is where Geeks Who Drink and I first met, so for me it’s an anniversary of sorts. I feel as though I have now become a man. Come full circle. The apprentice becomes the master. Been promoted to middle management. Maybe not Springsteen, but a boss in my own way. And my first act as Super Mega Boss In My Own Head™ is to tell you about this Harry Potter quiz. Let’s go!   24 teams graced Devil’s Advocate with their presence yesterday evening, and 24 teams kicked major ass. There were

Viper? I Hardly Knew 'Er!
Nick Danger

What can I say about last night’s quiz that hasn’t already been said about IEDs? It was bomb AF and nobody saw it coming! Round 1 provided me the perfect opportunity to test the waters with my new fake cockney accent I’d been dying to try. Popular opinion is it’s trash, turns out. Eh, you can’t be good at everything I guess. Round 2’s mash-ups were a fun break from the usual thoroughfare as well, and when you’ve been in the saddle as long as I have that’s a welcome sight indeed. Personally though, I thought round 3 stunk. I mean, pee-YEW. Y’know, because it was a round about smelly stuff. *ahem* Moving on. The honest-to-goodness

Of Titles, Tales, and Tiebreakers
Nick Danger

I gotta tell ya, it’s always a great time at Devil’s Advocate on quiz night. Last night’s was a real barn-burner if I’ve ever seen one. We had a 3-way tie for 3rd, and a 2-way tie for 1st! Much as the scat of a common ground squirrel, that shit was nuts...but we’ll get to that later. Firstly, here’s what I learned last night!   There are actually 8 different facts about Dwight D. Eisenhower! Who knew?   Katy Perry’s not the only person who kissed a girl.   There’s apparently at least one country the U.S. hasn’t fought a war against. Huh.   I

Science and Honor!*
Nick Danger

Welp, the college kids are back! Last night’s quiz got extra competitive due to the influx of new students ready to become fresh meat for the quiz grinder and it was jolly good fun if I do say so myself. And I do. I do so hard. This isn’t to say I didn’t see a lot of familiar faces as well, with such celebrated regulars as I Got This and Smarty Pints making triumphant returns. It was good to see everyone, and many hugs and belly rubs were in order. But that’s not why you came here today, oh ho ho! No. Let’s talk quiz.   Sixteen teams made it out last night and they all competed fiercely.

Of Thumbs and Rules
Nick Danger

You know what separates us from the apes, man? Thumbs. Opposable thumbs kick so much ass to have, and I would know, I’ve got ‘em. Of course having a distinguished phalangeal formula*, like many things, comes at a great cost. Uncle Ben** had it right: “With great power comes great responsibility.” And humankind as a whole has abused that power. I’m talking about thumb wars and the wanton*** destruction they cause. More on that later. Let’s talk about some quiz.   Last night’s showdown was an intimate one. Full of passion. Heat. A couple farts. Anyways,

Your Mom Finds Strangers in the Alps for Spare Change
Nick Danger

I’ve somehow become accustomed to these quizzes being barn-burners and last night was no exception. The points were flying thick and fast as nine teams duked it out for their hard-earned points. Blood, sweat, and tears are all gross, especially when mixed together like some sort of maniacal witch’s brew, but they were all thrown my way last night. Ew. Anyways, here a recap of the thing I learned at last night’s quiz:   Michael Phelps can freestyle? I guess everybody’s a rapper these days.   Katy Perry sounds much better in 8-bit. Lil John still sounds like shit.   The advent of

What? Geek Is Evolving!
Nick Danger

It’s official: this year’s election race has become a freaking sideshow circus. On one hand, we have democratic frontrunners playing break up/make up so suddenly it makes it hard to trust anything they say, on the other hand we have republican speakers backbiting like cursed spears and throwing up nazi salutes. It’s enough to make one’s head spin. Is this really the choice we’re all faced with? Is this really all we have to look forward to? But oh ho ho! Fret not my quizzers, for I have some exciting news to bequeath upon you: I, Nick Danger, announce my intention to run for president on an independent platform! That’s right, screw those mud-flinging

Less Miserable Than Watching Moulin Rouge
Nick Danger

Last night’s quiz marked a bittersweet occasion for me. Y’see, last week my beloved laptop (tank of a thing though it might have been) heaved its final, tired breath and its hard drive failed. I could have just bought another hard drive, but I think it was time to move on. Rest in pieces, Lappy…and a warm welcome to Lappy 2.0! Natch Lappy 2.0 is upgraded from its predecessor in nearly every way (except sheer weight), and she's already becoming like a natural extension of my own form...so shiny…so chrome. *ahem* Anyways. We had a quiz last night!   Competition was fierce! From the

I Caught A Tauros, His Name Is Tex!
Nick Danger

Last night was, without any doubt whatsoever, an evening of tumultuous, rambunctious, incorrigible, and- Dare I say? Fantastical events! The shock! The awe! The reptilian shapeshifters! The Pokemon GO! The points. THE POINTS. Good gods man, the points! You'll find all that and more in this week's blog! Read on! Read on!   All right, you all jazzed? Good. Let's talk about this Pokemon GO shit. First things first: who'd you pick for your starter? I hovered on Charmander for a moment 'cause he and I go way back, but I eventually settled on Bulbasaur because I figured, “Heck. It's Arizona, Nick. There's gonna be fire types all over

Of Politics, Pharell, and Portmanteaus
Nick Danger

Ho. ly. Shit. What a quiz! I’ve not seen a night this high-scoring even since I very first took on the illustrious mantle of the Quizmaster. No fewer than FIVE teams pulled a perfect, jokered round two out of their asses, and that was just the beginning! Heck, two teams had a perfect score at the first break. Y’all outdid yourselves last night, and that makes me the proud papa. <3 Here’s what I learned!   There are people who don’t know what the three primary colors are. I can only assume they’re actually just dogs disguised as humans and thus are colorblind, attributing to their failure to know this simplest of art-based

Cyndi Lauper Is A National Treasure, You Guys
Nick Danger

You’d think I’d get tired of saying it, but I don’t: Last night’s quiz was another for the history books. Fourteen teams raged like wildfire through eight rounds of questions like Mongols through Baghdad.  It was a brutal tournament of intellectual barbarians, pencils like swords cutting wide swaths of bloody answers across the plains of their scoresheets like raids through great fields of brainy grain. Ok, so I’m being a tad dramatic but still. Shit was cool. Also there was a lot of mention of Cyndi Lauper who, being a HUGE alcoholic, is a personal hero of mine. So that was neat. Anyhoo, here’s some cool things I learned last night!   Barney

If The Jets Are The Greatest Thing About America We're In Serious Trouble
Nick Danger

Another great quiz in the bank! Last night’s was a barn-burner to be remembered as fifteen teams just absolutely wrecked it. The winning team was literally within ten points of having a perfect quiz, and they weren’t the only ones with the all-time high score in mind. It was madness, madness I say! Let’s get into some of the details. Here are some of the things I learned last night:   Twinkies are apparently a booming industry. I can’t believe people still eat that shit. Or still care about the Playboy Mansion. How old is that place now? I bet the inside looks tacky af. All old-school eighties wallpaper and furniture that you’d
