So many unplanned pregnancies.
ChristopheR2D2

So, prior to asking question 6 in round 4, I suggested that all the fellas go ahead and give the answer sheets to any ladies that might be at their table.  So either few of you did this, or a LOT of you ladies are gonna get preggo, because an a;arming amount of you don't known when you're most fertile.    Seriously ladies, go get some IUDs. Otherwise Holiday Club is gonna need stroller parking come December.  Also, last night was the night of mis-used jokers.  9 teams used their joker in the 8th round.  All but one of you would have scored higher had you used it in round 2 instead.  Given that spots 1-5 were separated by a total

In which no one knows (or cares about) the weight of a newborn giraffe.
ChristopheR2D2

What a lovely Tuesday night!  We rounded up yet again for an evening of questions, some answers, and a reminder that it's Cubs season again.   Oh, and booze.   Never forget the booze. I sometimes forget that Holiday Club is situated just a handful of blocks from Wrigley.  After 6 1/2 months of frigid nonsense it's an easy mistake to make.  But then the Cubs season begins and HC is fucking packed to the gills - quizzers or not. So yeah, it's that time again. And it was nice to see some brand new faces last night.  In fact, I have to send a shout out to Becca (wherever you are), because get this shit: we both went to the

Menstrual fluid from the source? To her dad? Gross.
ChristopheR2D2

Just when I start thinking you can't possibly submit an answer that could possibly be more fucked up, you outdo yourselves.  To be fair, I did anticipate some odd guesses given the question itself.  But that wasn't one of them.  Ya sickos.   But I still adore you wacky bastards.  I have to give props to Dammit Jerry who came out of the gate swinging - putting up a perfect score in both rounds 1 and 2.  Dayum.  And of course  a hats off to regulars Tale of Two Titties who took our top spot again.  I shouldn't fail to note that they correctly submitted "Titty milk" for the round 6

A Year of Cock
ChristopheR2D2

Awwww yissss.   A full 12 months of cock.  Or as some of us call it "business as usual."  But really, just the Chinese Zodiac.  Or something... Mad props to Frisky when you tax our Whisky, who turned in perfect marks in both rounds 1 and 2, as well as the top score in round 8 to bring home our #1 spot.  No disrespect to It's Luxe who also submitted a flawless score through rounds 1 and 2, and would for a point or two in later rounds could have finished tops themselves. Also can I talk about how a fair few of you should give 7 Nation Army another spin?  Jack is going to Wichita.  Not Topeka.

Every round is worth 16 points!
ChristopheR2D2

...Or at least it effing felt like it.  Ergo, it took longer than I would have liked to score.  But on the real - HALF of the rounds could've netted you 16 points.  That's crazy.  Thus I was expecting insanely high scores.  Only to be shocked that no team even hit 90. Of course a big props to The Blue Team who did land at 88 points.  but given that we had a potential for over 110 points, I was really thinking some of you could have done it - because you've all put up some seriously bad ass scores in the past.  Turns out, Round 5 was quite the stumper.  Usually a lot of you ace it.  Last night, not so much.

Butt Stuff. Squared
ChristopheR2D2

Welcome to another record turnout at Holiday Club!  So it was for this week's quiz.  15 teams and another packed house.  Sorry it took me a bit longer to score all of you, but I feel it was worth it.  Not only did we have the battle at the top of the standings, but we had the Battle of the Butt Stuffs.  A tight (see what I did there?) race all evening, they finished butt to butt in the standings.  I love you fantastic bastards.  Turns out, a lot of you need to watch Annie Hall.  And the artwork for Breakfast Club is fairly mistaken for Res Dogs.  Not a bad choice there, either.  But seriously, watch Annie Hall.

It's pi day, why is there snow?!
ChristopheR2D2

Kudos to each and every one of you who ventured out in the craptastic weather we're having in Chicago right now.  After nearly 3 months sans snowfall, we got more than enough in the last 48 hours.  And not only that, but it's cold as balls outside. So thank you all for braving the frigid nonsense and making your way to Holiday Club. We had a hell of a finish too!  Heading into round 8 we had a 3-way tie for 2nd.  But don't worry, guys, it's not gay in a 3way.  Quizteama Aguilara, Tale of TwoTitties, and Cunning Stunts were all knotted after 7 rounds. No surprise, as they all had the top scores

That's a lot of "Fucks."
ChristopheR2D2

It's been quite a week since we last got together.  Geek Bowl XI happened, Trump continued his fuckery, I drank too much, and we got a Deadpool 2 trailer.   Awwww yiss. Last night saw one hell of a finish at Holiday Club.  But to jump to our 2 way tie for first is to do a disservice to the blog and to our night as a whole.  For starters, the audio round... Of the 13 teams who joined us last night, 9 of you scored a perfect 16 in the audio round.  Either we need a slightly more challenging batch of songs, or you just really dig Thom Yorke's stylings.  In any case, well done to you.  But for the props you get

Dirty Monkey DIE!
ChristopheR2D2

We bid goodbye to February with a record turnout at Holiday Club for the second consecutive week.  Ben had to bring in extra tables and chairs to accommodate everyone, because we had SIXTEEN teams!  In the nearly two years I've been lucky enough to have this gig, I've gone from seeing 3 or 4 teams to this.  And I fucking love it.  And I love each and every one of you who has chosen to spend their Tuesday evenings with us. To the quiz wrap up... Can you say marching band experts?  Because the Seawards sure can.  Actually, so can Lil Kath & the Tiny Suit Duo.  Both of them scored a perfect 16

A man, a plan, a canal... anal?
ChristopheR2D2

Packed to the freaking gills last night.  We had a record 15 teams and one team who legit was standing at the end of the bar because there was nowhere to sit. That's dedication, folks.  Thanks to everyone who turned out to Holiday Club & kicked ass. Speaking of... the quiz was a nail biter.We had a tie for 3rd place (Swedish Meatballs & The Team Next Door), and only 1 freaking point separated first and second place. Despite a perfect audio round (which they also doubled), Pope Francis Geraci's Moral Bankruptcy Tapes were tripped up in round 3, and it cost them the top spot.  They did however

The R-word for the period after male orgasm? Remorse
ChristopheR2D2

Thank you once again, Holiday Club!  I have an absolute blast each and every week, and last night was no exception.  Case in point, the inspiration for today's blog title.  Yes, one team actually submitted "remorse" as the word for the preiod after the male orgasm.  I love you beautiful bastards.    Regulars Kiss Me! I'm Stupid lept out to an early lead and managed to hold off a late charge by Counterclockwise Swirl to take 1st place.  But the Swirl crew game 'em a good test, ands only came up 2 points short.   Good stuff everyone.  Also a shout out to the folks in the home office,

Urine for a real treat
ChristopheR2D2

Back at it again at Holiday Club.  We had plenty of familiar faces and plenty of new ones as well. I had a blast as always, and just like every week, we all learned a few new things.  Like Wordpress is still a thing?  Seriously? And how crazy is it that in West Side Story a dude goes through Spanish Harlem yelling "Maria!" and only one girl comes to the window?  I call bullshit. But we learned about the pH of our pee, so that was golden. Yanno who else was golden?  Betsy's Grizzlies, that's who.  Through the first 5 rounds, they were one point shy of a perfect score.  They rode that ass whooping to a

As we closed out thee month of January it was about time we didn't have a tie. Which is good because I was out of tie breakers.  Also, i have to give a shout out to 3rd place finishers www., who put together that  showing in only their second week of quiz with us at Holiday Club.  Well done, indeed.   In other news, I thought I should mention that no, Tom Hanks was not in thee Goonies.  Which makes we wonder if some of you have actually seen thee Goonies.  Seriously, go watch it.

Welcome to the world of our new Tiny-handed Cheeto Overlord.  I say the back room of Holiday Club is our new "safe space."  Cuz that's where all the awesome shit happens.  Like a 2nd place tie for the third week in a row!!  Seriously, guys, quit it.  I'm running out of tie breaker questions.  But more on that in a bit. And yes, there were lots of questions (alternative facts?) about what god does or does not play.  Lots of fun answers: Basketball, Tennis, Poker... only a few knew it was dice.  But even better were some of the answers in the Matt/Willie/Cow round.  Kudos to those of you who thought that a cow was

Forgive the delay folks, technical difficulties on my end. So here we are, with our second consecutive three-way tie for second place.  You guy are just too damn good.  Except those of you who thought the museum for phalluses actually housed flags.  I'm still confused about that. Indeed our last quiz at Holiday Club before Donnie fucks us all was a barnburner, And one that saw some familiar faces take the top prize. Throwing up a perfect score in the video round probably helped.  Or maybe they watch too many movies.  Any way, you guys kick ass Not Last Place.

We're gonna miss you, Barack.  Eight years ago we watched proudly as Chicago's own took the helm of a country that had been thoroughly raked over the coals by W & co., and somehow managed take the dumpster fire you inherited and fix a ton of shit and made things pretty fantastic.  All while having to deal with racist dickbags who said from day one their main goal was to see to it that they blocked your every move.  So you bid us farewell while we watched (and delayed the start of quiz) and spoke so eloquently as always.  The likes of which w may not hear for sometime, if ever again.  We are so fucked in 9 days. But quiz, that's why we're hre.
