Basic Bitches #1-6
Laura

I missed you guys while I was gone last week. I mainly missed smart ass comments and watching your "what the fuck" faces. This week the questions writers must have been trying to get some of you to crack. Some of those questions were outright mean! And hard to explain. But you prevailed! Our blog title this week comes from the team that just felt like round five was maybe too out of their league and decided to guess basic bitch for at least six of the answers.  AND .. we had a semi-innebriated crooner amongst us! It was joy to hear.    So our standings this week go as follows: Not last went to: Sparkly Motion (may I never doubt your commitment

Small But Mighty - Quiz Edition
Katelynn

We had five delightful teams last night at Tap Root. Many questions were asked (approximately 64), and just that many were answered by most teams. We actually had a first place tie! Whaaaat! Yes, there was a vicious tie breaker between the two first place teams, but they successfully duked it out and little blood was shed. 3 Blind Moose took the 1st place prize, with Chuck Buried Alive coming in second. 808 took the prize for Not Last. The QM forgot, until the last minute, to take team photos. She's terribly embarrassed, but did remember to get the 1st and 2nd place pictures, so that's something. She's offering to all quiz participants to hand draw a picture of you at your request in apology

Killing me softly with round three...
Laura

I am a little behind. Whatever. Life happens and you roll with it. Or you act like a large boulder and everything grows around you while you stubbornly stay in place. I really enjoyed the volume this week. People engaged in each others company and the night felt alive. I also love the amount of times that I witnessed people harassing other teams and joshing around. Let's keep this up! Wining a dance off to seal the deal for Not Last Place we had: Jazz Hands (Some jazz hands included in dance off) Third Place was decided by Rock, Paper, Scissor : ManBearPig Second Place (Winners of Rock, Paper, Scissors): Wiretap That Ass And First Place (and best score of round

I'm still not over Valentine's Day
Katelynn

Hello everyone! Thanks for coming to quiz. I'd like to think we all had fun, and the people who didn't have fun don't really get a say in how much fun everyone had. This is coming straight from the Dalai Lama. Anyway, there was a three-way tie for second place, which is crazy. It was handled with a lightning tie-breaker between 3 Blind Moose, Beast Jesus and We are the 2%. In first place we had Hufflepuff Puff Pass. Great job guys.

And again with the dancing!! You fools!
Laura

Why in the name of some divine being does no one want to dance? I still don't get it but you know what, it's Fat Tuesday and I had pancakes for dinner before coming to play pubquiz with some of my favorite people. So i'll suck it up. This time.    We had a lovely night with great marching band renditions of songs, several folks acting out things trying to remember words and a team name that I refuse to say the way you want me to. I may be a quizmaster but I have a standard or two. You'll just never know exactly what those standards are. Because I will cuss like a sailor but there are certain words that make my skin crawl. And there are certain things that I just

Who loves the letter "O"???
Warren

Seven teams entered Tap Root this Sunday night with the sole purpose of competing for the Pub Quiz crown…and some neat-o prizes…they quickly spread out over the whole restaurant ensuring that their answer discussions could not be overheard by their competitors, or to make things even tougher on the serving staff, I don’t know, I didn’t ask, I’m probably assuming with that last one. But even with a small house the energy was grand with almost every quizzer competing for the bonus questions and no one leaving until the final scores were announced. After the dust settled and all the crying ended No, The Microphone Is Too Loud, secured a

And sadly Lethal Weapon was not the right answer...
Laura

There are seldom night when I feel like so many teams do so well. It's quite impressive. And then there are those few nights where every questions is harder than you thought and everyones scores blow. This Tuesday was somehow pretty middling. Everyone did well enough for me not to judge you and to harshly and yet bad enough for me to think that some of those questions were of decent cognitive challenge.    We'll keep this post brief.  In third place we had: Hufflepuff Puff Pass In second: Eagle Rage And first place was: Swedish Refugees   Twas a lovely evening to spend with you folk! See you next

If the question is dance or die...they would choose die
Laura

The past two times there have been need for a dance off, people have opted to not dance. That's right. When given the chance to dance people are turning it down. My inner Jimmy Jr. is highly offended. But I should admit that I dance awkwardly to any music available. Elevator music. I'd dance to that. The theme to X-Files? I have danced to that. Random strangers ring tone? Fuck yeah. So basically, im asking you to bring your best dance moves and any ability you have to move beyond fear of dancing and just dance! Just find that one thing inside of you that says "fuck off" to being afraid of making a fool of yourself. Draw every ounce of brazen, cocky, "let's show these bitches whose

Already antiquated love rituals...
Laura

Last night was the night were all the wrong answers were hilarious. From a reference to Vladimir Putin taking over the US to the insane amount of folks who guessed that Rick James was the artist for Brick House. There was also a lovely answer of "Ewww Gross" to a song about resting a head upon someone's bosom. Our questions are sometimes hilarious and I admit that I am funny every now and then but I you guys are truly hilarious. Also, I am seriously amazed by how many of you knew the name to the dildo with a large motor. Not in a bad way. I'm just impressed.    Not last place was given up due to neither of the tying teams wanting to partake in

Grammys? What's that?
Katelynn

Hey nerds! We had a great, contentious day of quiz! But guess what? None of us very publicly messed up a George Michael tribute in front of millions! So we've got that going for us. We had 9 great teams, each one better than the last! Literally! Except for Trumps Border Wall Glory Hole and 3 Blind Moose, who were actually tied for first. There was an angry and aggressive tiebreaker that concluded with 3 Blind Moose taking the top prize! See ya next week!

My favorite song lyrics....
Laura

I have a long list of favorite song lyrics. There is of course the one I told you about tonight from Get Out of My Dream (Get Into My Car)... "Touch my bumper, let's make a deal." Then there the line from Sexual Healing, "I'm hot just like an oven I need your lovin'."  Oooh and any line from the song Stroke Me by Billy Squier! The point being that I love song lyrics that just don't completely add up. How does your relation to an oven equate your need for intercourse? Why would you sing across the airwaves about your desire to be stroked? But I love those songs and those lyrics will be proudly sung aloud by this awkward human. (points thumbs towards myself)    Tonight

Slow Down James Brown
Laura

There are days when I am convinced that we as humans are a doomed species. I've been feeling that way hardcore for a couple of months now. Every once in a while my lackluster optimism will find the strength to whisper something like, "Hey but there are these people doing some really cool things over there." This is normally followed by aforementioned lackluster optimism then getting distracted by something shiny. Over the past couple of week though I have been pleasantly surprised by people. Like the older man in a "pussy" hat outside of Murkowski's office protesting DeVos. Or the teenager at work the other day that told me that she had gone to a protest to stand with and for immigrants.

THE COMPUTER ISN'T WORKING
Katelynn

Sunday was a wild ride! We had 14 rowdy teams, one broken computer, and a terrified host who almost cracked under the pressure. But not really, it was fine! Thanks to MF MELANIE who saved the day with her (working) laptop and SK prowess! Hell yeah! In first place we had the Sad Girls Club, who keep intermittently crying through the whole quiz. No judgment. In second place we had 3 Blind Moose, yay Alaska names! In a tie for 3rd place we had Nicht Mein
