Passion of The Topsy Hitler
Mavrick

Amidst the madness of March, which is less fun than the ides, the thing to beware of more is giving silly answers when you don’t want your quizmaster to make fun of you. But my comments are priceless, so I should start charging them. We spanned the cabinet, and I don’t mean Ikea crap… more like those cool kids in that club that are systematically destroying our country. And people say I should run for politics… I think I’d have too much fun for the nation if I had a podium. GWD should have a podium. Ok, enough about the podium I dream of having. We covered Now That’s What I Call Music!, rays, electrocution

So my name is Mavrick and yes, I know... you're Goose.

Originally from the Garbage State of NJ, I've wandered the country (primarily the South) for the last 10 years. Currently, the city of sin is home, but I will always enjoy messing with Texas and going to Florida beaches to drop deuces. A romantic date would involve Star Trek or Frasier with my amazing girlfriend... maybe a chinese buffet, too. A former pro wrestler turned female impersonating hook suspension artist, I also give grappling instruction and free headbutts.

I look up to people like Peter Steele, Fox Mulder and Cletus Kasady. I've been told I play a decent Joker as well as a good Gambit. My female alter-ego Sasha LaBia wears size 16 heels and is a fan of hooks.

Libertarian Disorder... There's A Creme For That
Mavrick

The quizzers at Bruno’s are making a comeback with a vengeance, I’m just waiting for their trash talk to outweigh the playlist! But alas, it probably will not. We spanned the knowledge universe as far as it has expanded on topics including politics, more politics, order and stealing... if one were to really think about it, all of the above are the same, but what do I know? Whoops, there goes another rubber tree! Team name of the night would definitely go to Who Nutted On The Potato?, referencing the epic amount of cheese on Bruno’s Tavern’s legendary debris fries. The beers were flowing and the shots were… well shot. We started

This Phair Don't Care About Frankenstein
Mavrick

Bruno’s brought us all back together again for our 8 round insanity night, alcohol-fuel style. And I would have liked fries with that. But the greasy fingers don’t help with winning the bonus questions. Although not much helped with anybody answering questions by round 7…  it’s a hard knocks life, for us. We went the distance last night, and we began in the beginning with a round on the ACLU. Now, I don’t actually know what that means, but I do know that every answer ended up having those letters in it, but not always in that order. And it also had very little to do with whatever the actual ACLU is… I should google that shit. Only lil’

English, What a Language!
Horatio Dell

So let me take you into the mind of a humble Quizmaster. Every time before a quiz, I go over everything and ask myself "So what is the impossible question?" Now, I am often wrong; QWD seems to bring out the genius in us all. But I like to predict what question is just so specialized as to make it impossible for Quiz champions to get. This quiz I thought I had it. Sentence Structure. Who the hell remembers sentence structure??? No one! I fondly remember drawing out sentence diagrams in my youth, and while this was fun (you don't get to become a Quizmaster without being a high level nerd. They do tests

Nguyening China Is Losing Vietnam
Mavrick

Labor Day is that time of year where a quizmaster gets really serious... ly drunk. All those kids come outta the woodwork to test their wits before school gets into full gear, then they get reminded they will be getting a lot of C's after playing our quiz. Probably better in school, at least I hope so for their sake. We went all 8 rounds last night, going through common sense answers pissing off Roger Waters and test-icling the de-destesticled eunuchs. No balls make a good ball gag. We started at the beginning (though one day I wanna run this whole shindig backwards), with a round for the simpletons titled "Duh!"... guess it was harder for smart people, and I refuse to apologize to the jews

My Very Enlarged Mandible Jumped Seven Uppity Nana's Puppies
Mavrick

Last night at Bruno's, we learned that even the best and brightest are not as smart as a 5th grader when it comes to our solar system or parental guidance. We had our returning champs drop to 3rd and some very silly times to Joker were demonstrated as well. We started the night with some obscure cluing on the airports of major cities with 2 appearances by Chicago. Some Prick In A Volvo knew their shit though, landing 8/8 possible points that round. Vagenda of Manocide identified with Albuquerque as the "Land of Breaking Bad"... guess I'm too old, cuz I only see it as somewhere you shouldn't have taken that left.

Reading is Fun! When You Are Mental!
Horatio Dell

I don't know about you guys, but I have a new favorite book reviewer. Spark Sweets PhD (or Thug Notes if ya Google) graced our quiz and we are all better for it. I finally truly understand Great Gabsy now. ON TO THE QUIZ!!! Trump graced LA with his presence and Making Trivia Great Again went wire to wire for the win!!! But to be honest, I am with her, and by her I mean the wonderful answer taker for our second place team Ryan Lochte's Legal Defense Team. Penmanship is appreciated but sadly it is worth zero points. If I was able to give out bonus points it would be our Sizzling Sixities team. It was their first time at Geeks Who Drink and I hope the low score doesn't turn them away because

Janine Melnitz: Frank Cross' New Secretary
Mavrick

Oh the life of a quizmaster is a blast, but some days we just want to bash our own heads in when we discover our players can't identify Ghostbusters and are the same age we are. ANYONE in their 30's who doesn't know that movie, but can tell me "Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball" from a 15 second clip... I could literally pound a shot of chartreuse into my ear. We had our returning champs... return. They know how to wisely use a joker, like when you get points, not like the teams who love jokering on single-point rounds without even knowing all the answers.

NBC's 'Friends' Bring You A Dead Parrot
Mavrick

When the coolest team at your quiz gets ZERO points on a round about saints, you feel like a whore's advocate. But I do advocate sinners more than saints, so welcome to my Sunday nights. We had some drinking of the geeks last night at Bruno's, all the teams going all the while... the whole nine yards on the whole eight rounds. We had Rio's, Murphy's and the BBC and yet all our best minds couldn't put the humpty with the dumpty altogether... again. We started with "The Round From Ipanema", which felt like some of the teams have spent WAAAAAAY too much time in an elevator... going down. Yes it's true, I love elipses. No, it's false that everyone did well this round.- Cusimanos were

On the eve of turning 34, we had a nicely packed house tonight for our quiz with several new & returning teams all showing that they have IT (not as in Pennywise) or can't quite get IT (cuz we all float down here below sea level). New Orleans got its shine on, as did taxi drivers without labia. No need to apologize to the Jews just yet, but now's a good a time as any.

Nothing but doosh canoes on the river of life. What a great time to make a return to being the QM at Bruno's after a 2-year hiatus!

I Missed Big Brothel For This!?!?
Quizmaster DePaul

Round 4 was a classic, a tv show or movie was described if one letter in the title had been changed. By far my favorite was number 6 CBS traps a bunch of strangers together for a summer... in a bordello the answer was Big Brothel. Now Big Brother is one of my favorite shows of all time but turning it into Big Brothel was a huge improvement. I was fine with missing the tonights episode just to read that question. we had some tough round tonight, but our first place team, Donald & Mike’s Excellent Adventures were way smarter than the rest. They got every answer correct in round 2, after that no

Quizmaster DePaul

After many weeks of traveling all over, I’m finally back! I was all over the country but I always fondly thought of all the quizzes I was missing. There were a lot of people today and it made for a great welcome back.Though I had lots of fun, it was a rough quiz for a lot of teams. You can always tell it was a tough one when every team leaves their joker for the last round. I for one don’t like to leave things to chance like that but who’d’ve thunk people wouldn’t know a whole lot about Power Rangers or time. Coming in first was Tequila Mockingbird.

Horatio Dell

New Orleans is special. Everyone knows this. But what really makes New Orleans special is not what makes it different (the music, the food, the liberal drinking laws) but what makes us the same. And what does every place have? LOCAL SPORTS TEAMS!!! New Orleans has a bunch AND I LOVE THEM ALL!!! The Jesters, the Big Easy Rollergirls, the defunct Voodoo & Brass, just good good stuff. Right now in NOLA-ville the local minor league baseball team, the Zephyrs, are undergoing a name changed. Why? NO REASON!!! Absolutely no one dislikes the name Zephyrs, everyone knows who the Zephyrs are, no one is not going to a Zephyrs game because of the name (we don't go cause Baseball

What’s one letter removed form that Harry Potter name for a certain wizard and is also the name of a young pigeon?

Rowling still loves you. Once again it was another great night of quizzing at Brunos! We were few and far between but we were mighty! Coming in first by a long ways was Everybody Loves Draymond.

Specifics Matter!!!!!
Quizmaster DePaul

There was quite the dispute today because I did not count answers right in round 7. The clip in question was clip from Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Everyone simply wrote Terminator. First off, the first movie in The Terminator Series is, The Terminator. Not putting the The in from is like saying The Fast and the Furious, and Fast and Furious are the same movie, conjunctions matter people! Not to mention Sarah Connor only narrates the end of The Terminator, but she narrates most of Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Point of this rant, Terminator is not right correct answer because it’s not the same movie. Other than that
