Oh, What's In A Name?
Nick Danger

Holy heck, you guys turned out this week! I had no fewer then 20 teams last night and it was wondrous. In particular, I had about a billion* different team names that were more amazing then General Tsao AND his chicken. Let’s take a look!   First off, hats off to Margaret Thatcher Would Have Never Let This Happen #mothermayi for not only taking first but also having a great team name, Talk about a bifecta!   I’d also like to point out Nordstrom Has Better Standards Than the White House for their rather politically charged but almost certainly amazing team name. Good job with your colloquial criticism guys!   Then,

Of Gaggles and Giggles
Nick Danger

Fun fact: big, packed quizzes make me a happy boy. That said, I was the happiest ma’fucker in the house when I got to Devil’s Advocate yesterday and the place was filled to the brim with quizzers. What sublime bliss! What wanton elation! What prolific joy! Y’all warmed the conkles of my heart last night, no lie. But enough about my level of happiness in the workplace, let’s talk about that quiz.   18 teams turned out, and man oh man was it a battle. No fewer than 7 teams jokered a perfect round 2 and that’s just the start. I was so sure I was going to have a tiebreaker on my hands for the placing teams but when the dust settled the

Kurt Russell Is Chris Pratt's Dad
Nick Danger

Hello again, friends! I’m back with you once again to regale you with tales of last night’s quiz. As always, it was hilariously educational. Here’s some cool things I learned last night!   Bank the sea turtle is living proof that we humans absolutely can not coexist with nature without just utterly fucking it up. Way to go, team.   Scar from the Lion King might very well have been the first boy scout.   Drive would have been so much more watchable with Ryan Reynolds in it.   I never knew Kangols were so universally celebrated. Srsly, Sam Jackson. It’s just a hat.   The

This One's For You, Bill
Nick Danger

Devil’s Advocate was livelier than usual when I rolled in last night to host the quiz, thanks in part to the baseball preseaon firing up. Sportsers rubbed elbows with geeks as the quiz kicked off in a packed house, and there was a fun mix of old quizzers and new…even a few familiar faces I hadn’t seen in a good long while. It was nice and cathartic. But, you don’t care about that. Let’s talk about that quiz!   Subjects ranged from farting court jesters to awkwardly named Bon Jovi songs, from security guard/gentleman at night Batman to Nintendo fanboyism, from gaslighting to phallic ‘naners, and from lowly Private Hudson to the president

A Poem
Nick Danger

*ahem*   Greetings, humble, hearty friend I come to you with news again Of clever quizzes, clever men Clever women too within Were tested of their brainy mettle And given scores their chance to settle That said let us put this pedalTo the motherfucking metal We quizzed of Joan of Arc, so lit We quizzed of pet name “sexy bitch” We quizzed of female judges’ silly wigs We quizzed of Jill Stein’s hate for oil digs We quizzed of cowboy vampirism We quizzed of covert ops baptism We quizzed of Bruce Willis’s “Yippee Ki-Yay!” And

Of Arizona Summers and Stone Cold Stunners
Nick Danger

February really is my favorite time of year for quizzing. The weather’s just right in Arizona, and people are finally starting to recuperate from their Christmas-induced financial woes and post-election depression and there’s a sort of general cheer in the air everywhere you go…a cheer that will soon be dashed like a wayward ship on the jagged rocks once 100˚+ temperatures hit here in a month or so. God I love living in the desert. Enough about that, though. Let’s take a look at some things I learned at last night’s quiz!   Easter Island is apparently a Chilean territory. And here I thought those big heads ran it. Huh.   More

Of Hounds and High Places
Nick Danger

Talk about a high-flying quiz spectacular! Last night’s quiz had it all: Charles Lindbergh, The Wright Bros, Amsterdam…I could go on. In any case, I’m willing to bet that most of my quizzers were higher than Jupiter’s moon Io (which I learned last night has something like 400 active volcanoes, the better to torch those dabs with, amirite?) because competition was stiff, even among those teams of regulars who normally pull into a comfortably commanding lead from the get-go (you know who you are). Overall, it made for a fun quiz to watch. Also, did I mention there was a cute pupper on the patio? I got to give him pets! What a come-up! Anyhoo, on to the

Like, Seriously. He REALLY Sucks.
Nick Danger

From what I hear, there’s some sort of Super Ball coming up this weekend, and everybody is in a fervor. The sportsers were out in droves this Wednesday as we quizzed steadfast throughout the night and, despite our differences, there was apparently one topic every person in the room agreed on: Steve Bannon totally sucks. What can I say? There’s nothing like adversity to bring people together. It’s heartwarming, really.   The quiz itself, on the other hand, was quite volatile. Not in a violent sense, mind you, but there were a lot of ups and downs. A team would be up one minute, and middle of the pack the next time I checked. Come to think it, I suppose

Like A Moth To The Flame, I Am Drawn To Bad Puns
Nick Danger

As many of you know, I regularly host a quiz on Wednesday nights at a little place called Devil’s Advocate. You may have heard of it. Y’know, ‘cause I talk about it a lot in muh little blog here. Anyhoo, I did just that last night (Hosted a quiz, not talked about it. That’s what I’m doing right now.) and it was a fabulous affair! So many teams rolled out STRONK this fine Hump Day and man did they ever kick all the butts. For a hard-as-an-octogenarian’s-Viagra-erection quiz, my little Quizamaniacs (NEW TERM. I JUST COINED IT BROTHER.) sure cut a helluva rug. There were even a few rounds that confused me a tad bit (In Search of Lost Time? Is that the Doctor

Of Quizzes and Quickscopes
Nick Danger

It’s always nice when good friends come to visit the quiz. You get to hang out a bit, catch up, and (above all) laugh at them when their stupid dumdum brains don’t work so good. That said, it was a real hoot last night when I was pleasantly surprised with the unannounced appearance of six of my closest friends and associates (read: my D&D group). I guess you could say they rolled the dice and decided to come to back to that sa-weet, sweet quiz. They always come ba- What? Hell no. I don’t feel bad for making that pun at all. As a matter of fact, pipe up again and I’ll pop you with a fresh one like your name was Hungry and my name was Dad. Don’t test me. Shush.   Come

Nu Metal and Crystal Meth, They Go Hand in Hand
Nick Danger

Week in and week out I host this quiz and, I gotta say, I’m still always learning new things. It’s a never-ending source of joy having my mind blown more often than a small-town meth dealer. Why don’t we take a look at some of the things I learned this week!   Kevin Smith has apparently at one point actually held down a respectable job.   Staind is still a band. I’d like to say I’ve listened to ‘em recently but…it’s been a while.   There’s an International Association of Volcanology and it most unfortunately does NOT have anything to do with Spock.   It’s

We're Here Because We're Here Because We're Here Because There's Beer
Nick Danger

Happy 2017, errybody! I’d like to personally welcome you all into the new year, kicking and screaming though you might be. It’s ok. Change is good. Let it wash over you. There. Isn’t that nice? 2017. Anyways, the first quiz of the year was a fun one. 12 teams made it out to quiz on a chilly Wednesday night, and all were in good spirits as we steamed through a particularly juicy quiz. I mean, fart manatees, Barry the Bee stinging Macaulay Culkin to death, and a whole round about nuts? That shit is gold. You really outdid yourselves this week, quiz writers. Kudos. I’d also like to extend a kudos to 50 Shades of Danny for taking

Dumpster Fire? I Hardly Knew Her Fire!
Nick Danger

Ah, Quiz. My mistress. She can be fickle, no? At first, she lures you in, lulls you into complacency with her easy first round, but then she strikes, erases every last shred of decency you might be harboring inside you, and leaves you: a broken, shattered husk of your former self. Pointless. Friendless. Job- OK. I’m being dramatic. Still though, there were a few tough rounds this week. Let’s talk about it! Here’s some stuff I learned:   Plagiarism is technically fine, so long as the original work was yours to begin with.   I’m still not sure I believe it, but Nickelback has apparently had a #1 hit. I don’t know

Insert Generic Holiday Title Here
Nick Danger

Here we are, balls deep in the holiday season, and I couldn’t be happier. Last night I found myself surrounded, by good friends, good cheer, good quizzing, and good beer. Good times. But you don’t care about nunna that shit, do ya? Let’s talk about all the stuff I learned last night!   Every horsepower begins with ‘ho’.   ApologetiX are unequivocally my favorite band once again.   Waterworld was the Citizen Kane of the ‘90s.   I have something in common with Congress in that we both have contempt for Karl Rove! How neat is that?   According to what R6Q6

Of Raid Bosses and Feline Losses
Nick Danger

They say that one time, long, long ago, long before you or I were ever conceived of, there was a cat who was fed four minutes too late and that cat died and all the cats across the land mourned for him. His tale (tail?) has been passed down from generation to generation of felines in hopes that no owner shall ever again make the same mistake. This is why cats cry so when they are not fed right on time. And this is what it would sound like to me if, say, a very drunk person were to repeatedly yell at me to, “Play the Drake song again!” during an audio round. But this is all hypothetical talk. Let’s talk about last night’s quiz! It was a close one from the get-go, with

The Cheesiest!
Nick Danger

It was another fun-filled evening at Devil’s Advocate last night, as we all gathered in groups of 6 for warmth. Hey, don’t give me that look! It gets mighty chilly in the desert at night. Of course, we did get some quizzing done while we were at it, or we wouldn’t be talking now would we? Let’s get down to brass tacks.   We started the evening with a round on one of my very favorite things in the world: mac ‘n’ cheese! Dat delicious, noodly goodness. Judging by the scores I saw, I’m not alone in my cheesy lust either. Y’all know your pasta! The night rolled on in high spirits after that, with much rejoicing and answering
