So who here has boned 20 dudes?
JWarr

  Sure it was a Sunday, but who says you can’t have fun with the impending doldrum of work that is coming down the pike? I know we had quite the time with some quite awesome rounds and such. So let’s take a peak at how it all went down.   HBO we know. The difference between Cher and Madonna we did not.  Cher is not in the hall of fame of rockers, but Green Day is. There’s no such things as the Texas Rangers. Most importantly, we learned some of you are whores and I’m sure Turrells spent the rest of the night wondering where their 20 sexual partners went.   The Underdogs: A Cinderella

I Do Your Stats Homework for You
JWarr

This one tripped up a lot of you, so let’s talk about permutations and combinations.   Let’s say you go to Baskin Robbins (they have those still, right?) and you want a 2 scoop ice cream cone because you’re like the president and goddamn it you get two scoops of ice cream.  We all know that the BR has 31 flavors.     How many combinations of ice cream cone can you get? A combination is taking two flavors out of 31, without giving a shit which flavor comes first. So Mint Chocolate Chip on top of Coffee is the same as Coffee on top of Mint Chocolate Chip. There are 465 possible combinations.   A permutation

This Ain't Your Mama's Quiz
GB

Because if it was your Mama's quiz, it would have been wearing high waisted jeans and secretly drinking wine from a Yeti tumbler. No, this was the triumphant return of yours truly to being on the front of the stage saying mean things and mispronouncing epistemology. Or something like that. All I know is it results in a little snip snip to the perineum.  Thanks, but no thanks. Noooooo thanks.  In reality, we had a very spirited quiz that managed to forge multiple ties and lead changes all while ignoring the fact that I was pretty much making up the rules as I went along.

A Blog Where You Learn About Otters
JWarr

Well, you asked for it. You don’t seem to know what it is. And there’s no way I’m not taking an open forum like this one to educate you on the gay world when it is offered.   Here is your blog on otters.   Now this came up on a question about a soap opera character becoming an otter? Boinking an otter? Context is irrelevant.  When I say otter and make the joke “no, not like a gay otter, like a <insert JWarr making otter noises here> animal otter” and you ask me “wait, there are gay otters?” that means its education time.   To be clear the bear community is quite extensive.

They said modern music. I thought, you know, that meant Jackson Browne
St. Jimmy

I am happily married and expecting my first child, but if I ever left my wife for CJ Gregg, I don’t think she would be to upset. I even asked and she said she understands. My wife is very similar to CJ and I am pretty much her Danny Concannon. She is a boss ass lady who runs her workplace and I make stupid jokes and bring her goldfish snacks. See C.J and Danny!   And now for a breakdown of the quiz:   Not Purple had a few when they showed up a couple of rounds late but the past champs showed that even when drunk they could make a run at the other teams. Unfortunately, they needed those two rounds and ended in third. Abercrombie

You Must (not) Unlearn What You Have Learned
Eric Riggan

I had the very great pleasure of being your host for our 3rd ever Star Wars Theme Quiz, and I don't believe I have ever had so much fun at a quiz in my life! Star Wars to me, as I am certain it is with many of you, is very special. More than mere cinema and entertainment, Star Wars found a way to become more than that. In the stories of The Force, we find themes that geeks like us relate deeply to, that the unassuming and awkward and outcast can become great. The Force is somehow both a mystical cinema mcguffin, and a profound and simple. And the classic story of the steadfast underdog ultimately triumphing over the forces of evil is universal in its appeal. And so, every May 4th, dorks like

Don’t make me look stuff up for you- I’m a big fan of the let me google that for you website and its rather annoying. Like Does Carmen Miranda have a fruit hat? How the fuck should Inlnow, google it damn it! Meanwhile, all the Apple fans are looking at me like “what the hell are you talking about?” Also, don’t google porn.  Have discerning taste. At least use search terms.   Music round: We almost escape this round without Glee. Then question 8 happened. Goddamn it.

Way to Go Mathletes
St. Jimmy

  I went to a state school so I fully understand knowing that the football coach is paid more than any other state employee. If I had a personal rant wheel (a la Jon Lovett), funding for college football programs would be 5 out of seven spaces. I understand it and for larger schools I get that it is separate from funding for the actually school but it’s the perception and the impact that has on donors and those that support the university. Even if a football program makes so much money that it funds its self, donors still want to be involved with something so popular, and that is where all the money will go. No person wants to build a new building for the forestry department

I've got to get this out of the way because the Manchester Darby is on.  It's a sports thing, just go with it. Some hilarious wrong answers of the evening: We did not spell out the film Titanic in round 7, so Leonardo DiCaprio would be wrong there. Um, goat flesh? You cook Indian food with goat flesh? If the songs are remixed with Smells Like Teen Spirit, then the right answer will not be Smells Like Teen Spirit. Just, no. When did it become posh to just not guess or draw poop emojis? Also,

Different Movie, Same Voiceover Dude
St. Jimmy

Well, we all need to brush up on our cop moves, because round 7 was brutal. The highest score of round 7 was a four. I was in the same boat as the rest of y’all. Cop movies are not necessarily my jam. They are take place in New Jersey or LA and I just can’t relate to those cities except the Big Easy. Dennis Quaid pretending to play Zydeco, now that’s my jam!  Also, if Geeks Who Drinks was going to include Kindergarten Cop on the list, we would have certainly used the “Its not a tumor” clip. You just can’t pass on that. Still, even with the hiccup in round 7 we had ourselves a pretty good quiz

LOLZ by Trey Songs Featuring WTF

This was a tough one folks, and you most def had your highs and lows- Kicking off with articles of clothing? Sure. Got it nailed.  Excellent numbers all around and very proud of your work. Then we got to round 2. Music. A round you’re supposed to nail.  A round you traditionally love.  You averaged a 5 on it.  One team jokered- Drunks Who Geek- who were then punished for their bravery by scoring a 9 when the high score in the bar was a 10 (congrats to Aaron Hernandez's Most Deserving Victim on that. Then we get to a round on wheat (NOT WEED, Alternative Facts…) which netted an average

Shakespeare Stole That from the Marlow Play “Doctor Muff Boner of Dildo Hill”
St. Jimmy

We didn’t have a ton of teams tonight but those that came brought the fire. Two scores in the 80s and one in the high 70s is not bad. Of course Bryan Street brings in some of the best teams in the area so I shouldn’t be surprised.

NASCAR Rugby
JWarr

That sports round tho- I'm so happy we got a unique audio round out there, and I could listen to that guy yell goal for days. But let me explain- American football is NASCAR Rugby. Now you've figured out I'm a soccer fan.  It is the one true sport.  It is the WORLD CUP because people from across the WORLD play it.  I'm not going to convince you to try to watch it (you should), that it's amazing (it is), or that I'm better than you because I love it and you don't (I am better than you, but there are many more reasons than that). This isn't a conversion, simply an explanation.  American football is the product of a love child between a xenophobic, petulant America

Still Better Than Anything by Rob Zombie
St. Jimmy

While I was really hoping that round 2 was going to be all Nu-Metal considering the mention of Powerman 5000, it was not to be. But it did get me thinking about Nu-Metal. I have been watching a lot of videos by Banger TV (people behind Metal: A Headbangers Journey and Metal Evolution), and discussions of Nu-Metal and it success and influences is always a good discussion. People shit on Nu Metal and rightfully so, but it worked for a reason. Not because it was commercialized music, but because it was a new sound at just the right moment. It connected to something in a listener’s brain and it worked. You have to appreciate that, as it doesn’t happen often. You don’t have to

Better than Baseball, Duh.
JWarr

Let's hit the best and worst highlights of our first quiz of April. Wrong answer of the game- well we did have to go over that New Jersey is not in fact a city, though it is functionally just a giant suburb of New York, but the Fringe confusion for Stranger Things and assuming all vampire shows are True Blood are most def up there. Best team name of the game- You Gonna Make Me Comey took the cake.  And also a couple of loads. Worst estimation of a voting population- Cat Scratch Fever.  Europeans vote. Not always well, but they do it. Best patio moment of the game- All the dogs!! So many dogs!!! Best

Yes, That Is Her Twitter Handle, But Not Her Full Name
St. Jimmy

We had ourselves a nice quiz with all the teams pretty close through most of the rounds. We learned that Hayley from Paramore has a last name and that the singer of The Band Perry has a first. No one was able to correctly answer that last one with some teams opting for stereotypical white girl names. Educate yourselves fool.  And now for a breakdown of the quiz: I Thought This Was Bingo found themselves outmatched tonight. They ended up at the bottom of the totem pool in last. Super Pretty Awesome showed moments of promise but had a tough round 8 as they finished in 6th. I Feel Like We Have a Pretty Good Shot at Winning
