In Which I Met TEH CUTEST PUPPY IN TEH HOLE WORLD ZOMGZ U GUISE
Nick Danger

Oh? Why hello there! You lucky duck, you got here just in time for my story! Please, have a seat there next to the others. Now, this is the story of the quiz where I met the cutest puppy in the world. It was a Wednesday night no different from any other, or so I thought. I showed up at Devil’s Advocate in high spirits, said, “It’s Wednesday, my dudes!” to my dudes, and proceeded to start in with the usual shenanigans. Round one deviated from the current events theme it normally takes on to give us a fun ride in the shoes of several of history’s cool people and my quizzers liked it and so did I. Five different teams got a perfect score on it and I was very proud

Worst. Hitler's. Birthday. Ever.
Nick Danger

Death. A blanket that eventually envelops everything living. An emotionless harvester of the fruits of the earth. A pretty sweet metal band. It is all of these things. Nothing drives that home like taking a good look at all the beloved (and not-so-beloved) celebrities and musicians that have passed from the world just this year. It seems like every third question of last night’s quiz was about someone who kicked the bucket in 2016: Doris Roberts, Alan Rickman, David Bowie, even our one true lord and savior Lemmy. And then I woke today to find that Prince has beamed up to the mothership and Chyna has gone to the great WrestleMania in the sky. I tell ya, they’re starting to drop

"This Is Why You Don't Drink During Pregnancy"
Nick Danger

Hi, welcome to blog! I hope you enjoy your stay. While you’re here, check out these eight things that totally happened last night…   I found a euro in your wallet.   John Mellencamp gave Jack and Diane the clap.   I found out that Lassie was technically a Rough Collie and Cujo was technically a huge dick.   ‘Bullshit’ turned out to be a perfectly acceptable substitute for the word ‘tchotchkes’.   David Bowie kidnapped a red-headed stepchild because they’re basically almost goblins anyways.   Matt Damon chose Gretchen Mol over

50 Cents and Sensibility
Nick Danger

Wednesday night brought out the quizzers en masse once more, as I launched into another vigorous session of Geeks Who Drink brand pub quiz. I found out last night that Devil’s Advocate has a Friends-themed trivia board game on hand when I rolled in to see a circle of people surrounding what I assumed to be a fight (or at least an intense pokemon battle) but turned out instead to be a gaggle of my regulars hard at it playing the board game in preparation for the Friends-themed quiz at the end of the month. I really do love these people. They are dedicated AF to their craft. Here's some other stuff I learned last night: Apparently my definition of inflatable pleasure crafts

[Rhymes With "Bangin'"]
Nick Danger

Devil’s Advocate was packed to the gills last night, as a hefty sum of 21 teams rolled through to enjoy Geeks Who Drink. It was a real thrill to see so many fresh faces intermingled with all my beloved regulars. <3 Now, about that quiz!   Here are some things I learned last night: There are people who think that one person is the only reason Batman v Superman was bad. I hate Lady Gaga more than I originally had thought. You can do any drugs you’d like while watching a tv show and so long as you only take them at specific points in the show it’s still considered a drinking game. Dr. Ruth can fit 6 inches between her ears. Purple Jesus isn’t

3 Minutes of Me Time
Nick Danger

Last night’s quiz was a event of unusual caliber. As per usual round 1 greased my quizzers up by softballing in a few easy questions, but round 2 made no effort to hide its intent to separating the boys from the men and, once ramped up, this crazy train just kept on a-rollin’. It was like free points day at points city for some of these people. To wit, I’d like to give a VERY special shout-out to How Do You Get Cancer Smoking Crack? for pulling a perfect round 3 out of their asses and then dropping a joker on that sumbitch like an atomic bomb for a heaping 32 POINTS. Gentlemen, I am in awe. The freshly-reborn White Women nipped at

Get it? Moby DICK? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...Ahaha...Aha...Oh Man...I Kill Myself Sometimes
Nick Danger

For the official record, the subtle insinuation of baby-shaking in round 2 was not lost upon my quizzers last night. As a matter of fact I was quite pleased indeed with the content of this week’s quiz. (Moby) dick jokes, dead (evil) baby jokes, a bit of racial humor (thanks, Leprechaun), even a touch of literary humor to balance it out, this one had it all. Kudos to the writers, you make me look so good. The team names were, as always, totally on point as well with my personal favorites being Vulvarine and What Do Basketballs Say in Braille? Also, big ups to Scott’s Tots who, upon reading last week’s blog decided

Just Say No To Wham!
Nick Danger

This week’s quiz was an odyssey of oddities. From the gimmick-laden round 2, to the mixed up point values of round 8 (first time I think I’ve ever seen a r8q8 that wasn’t worth 4 points, totally fuckin’ bonkers, I know) it was something just a little different enough to make it quite the fun quiz indeed. To top it off, our usual in-house champions Scott’s Tots were inexplicably absent, leaving a massive power vacuum that a lot of my other regular teams exploited greedily. Last night’s quiz didn’t pull any political punches either, with questions about such hot-button issues as birds, fish named after a noise birds make, and bread (a

It's Pronounced "Ca-pote-meh"
Nick Danger

Holy smokes, fun quiz is fun! I often tell people how proud I am of my quizzers and this week is no exception. Don’t get me wrong, last night’s quiz was pretty low-scoring (relatively) but the team names were on point. From SCROTUS to Mein Drumpf to Nick Danger’s Treasure Trail: Highway to the Danger Zone all were excellent. Also, I gotta say Just Dix have REALLY stepped up their dick drawing game. They may not score too many points in the quizzes but they consistently score points in my heart. <3   As for the actual quiz, y’all kept it close even to the point of my

Umberto Eco the Dolphin (Still Dead)
Nick Danger

Another great quiz under the belt! I even managed to hide my mispronunciations as jokes! I am 100% sure nobody noticed, what with the veritable (Umberto) Eco-system of refined humor I bring to the table. In any case, it wasn't the first time I've mangled a name and it won't be the last. You have been warned. That said, HOLY SHIT THAT ROUND 2! So many jokers. So many perfect scores. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I love my quizzers. Except that guy (see paragraph one). Congrats to Team Kickass for showing up this week, and also for winning! Sorry, Scott’s Tots. You’ll get ‘em next time. Like every

Supreme Court Justice Is Served
Nick Danger

Ah, the quiz. She can be a cruel mistress. She sings her siren song of an easy first round, lulling unsuspecting geeks in to their ultimate end at the hands of a brutal follow-up. Last night, both audio and gimmick played their part in many a team’s downfall. Beyond the top three teams, it was probably the lowest-scoring quiz I’ve seen in a good long while. This fact didn’t stop the quiz from being more competitive than ever, of course. Far from it! Low scores just meant more turnover than usual as teams vied for the coveted fourth place (believe me when I say that the top three spots were locked down tight). In contrast to recent history, local champions Scott’s

I Still Feel Like Pendejo Is Another Way of Saying Cowboy
Nick Danger

Oh man, y’all. Last night’s quiz started off already cranked to eleven but let me tell you, when round two hit? There was no containing the fury of the woo (wu?). Also, my quizzers apparently have some sort of hive mind bullshit going on. Several times throughout the night I noticed more than a couple teams put down not only the wrong answer, but the same wrong answer. Wavelengths, yo! Props to the smartasses who showed their work on round six, question four. I didn’t award any extra points for it, but do feel free to pat yourselves on the back. I feel like I always learn something new at these quizzes, and this one was no exception. I, for one, had no idea that Madonna had

Here Is Something You Can't Understand, How Aaron Burr Can Straight Kill A Man
Nick Danger

In keeping with the recent trend, last night’s quiz was a tough one. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more merciless round one. In my experience that first set of questions usually glides in nice and sweet, like a gentle summer breeze. This week, round one bored everyone a huge new hole like a hammerhead-shark-shaped-dick. Seriously, who the fuck is Kaley Cuoco?   Inherent difficulty aside, the quiz was still a ginormous amount of fun. Only one team figured out the quiz’s theme before the end, but they had it from the get-go.  And when that last question of round eight rolled around? Hooooooo boy. They went apeshit. And speaking

The Politicians May Be Dirty, But The Water Is...Ok, It's Also Dirty
Nick Danger

First off let me say any quiz featuring Bill Pullman is a good quiz. Prince Lonestar owns my heart, now and forever. More secondly, last night’s quiz was a barn burner of a white-knuckle thrillride like no other. Fun fact: Banging your head against a wall burns up one hundred fifty calories per hour.  Another fun fact: at any given point last night, the top three teams were within a scant three points of each other. Scott’s Tots (quite predictably) wrecked this quiz like it was a brand new Porsche 911 and they were Drunk Ryan Dunn, but every time I tallied the score, second place was nipping at their flaming heels like the grim reaper himself. Most thirdlyest,

You Might Not Think He's Prime Minister, But It's Trudeau
Nick Danger

Another Wednesday night brought us another great quiz at Devil’s Advocate. Beginning the night with a tight flight of rhymes was more than all right. Quite the welcome sight. This was of course offset by the unfortunate reminder that P.O.D. was, in fact, actually a thing in the early 2000’s. Thanks for that. Speaking of unfortunate, could we please just all agree to give Leo DiCaprio a damned Oscar already? He tries so, so hard you guys. If I have to, I’ll write my own screenplay for him to star in. I can see it now: set in a small town in Canada, a psychological thriller about a whole bunch of uglies that need bumpin’. I’ma call it Crotch Lake, and it is gonna

Cockchafer Was the Real 5th Beatle
Nick Danger

Wow, last night’s quiz really brought the geeks to the yard! With 20 teams in the field, it was quite the competitive event. Looking out over the sea of fresh, spectacle-bedecked faces, I felt a sense of pride…and I knew I couldn’t bring these people just any old pub quiz. That, of course, didn’t stop me from reading the questions as I would any other night…BUT! Luckily for me, this week’s quiz was tougher than Jaws’s orthodontist. And I mean Jaws like the Bond villain from Moonraker, not the animatronic, sometimes 3D shark. I was actually approached by several regulars about the difficulty of the questions, but alas! We are all at the mercy of the
