A brisket, a brasket... More cornbread, please!
JohnWing

The healthiest group in the bar got the least amount of points last night. Is there any causation behind this correlation between riding the thin, white line between pedestrian and automobile, and knowing not-so-much about celebrity siblings? Who’s to say? All I know is that the Cyclists took last last night.   As a person who has not watched one single second of Game of Thrones yet, I was a lot like last night’s 4th place team - late to the game. Still, they scored some points and had some beers, so cheers to I Used

Slow down the theme all you want, that won't make the plot seem to move faster!
JohnWing

It just goes to show you that an intimidating name doesn’t always equal an intimidating performance. Well, who’s to say that this team wasn’t intimidating in other ways? Perhaps their mere presence prevented other teams from violating the “No Smart Phoning” policy. Yeah, let’s go with that, because the Skull Smashing Destroyers placed 6th last night, and, well… They need it right now.   The Mighty Moose Rats came to defend their title from last week, but found that the categories were

Remember that one scene from Ghost? No, not that one, the other one.
JohnWing

Well, despite what Nelly promised herself at the beginning of the night, Nelly’s Fly finished very much down at the end of the night. Whoa, Nelly. Sidenote: Country Grammar was a really great album.   Well, they say 2 out of 3 ain’t bad… but you know what’s a little more than 8/100 better than 2 out of 3? 3 out of 4. 3 Out of 4 Daughters that is… Say, did you gals know there’s a bar with an inferior Monday night quiz named after a group like you?   Local

Why rue the day when you can roux it instead?
JohnWing

Normally, you’d never hear anything even remotely similar to this next statement come out of my mouth, so please understand that not only is it to be taken within the context of the quiz, but I recognize the gravity of what I’m about to say: Mac ‘n’ Cheese left something to be desired. Okay, that hurt to say. I hurt so much that I could use a big ole pile of my favorite comfort food, but I would understand if it didn’t want anything to do with me right now. I’m sorry mac. Sorry cheese. I love you.   Oops, We Did it Again

This isn't the first time I've encountered the Swedish Chef...
JohnWing

...and I assure you, there will be many others until the day one of us perishes. All BORKs aside, last night was a slobber-knocker. As a seasoned Quiz Master, I stated it quite plainly: “This one is going to be a slobber-knocker”, and you know what? It was.   Speaking of slobber, Those Who Don’t Know stayed long enough to prove that they’d chosen an appropriate team name and then promptly left. They seemed to be on their way somewhere important, perhaps they were part of the Federal Government. I don’t know. I’m

There's nothing in the rule book that says a dog can't play the quiz! Oh wait, here it is... "No Dogs"
JohnWing

Small teams combining into super teams, latecomers contributing mad points in late rounds, less than five points separating last place and first place at each score tally… THIS QUIZ HAD IT ALL!   Let’s get to the recap.   The Biggest Winners, like a 6’10”, 450lb man nicknamed “Tiny”, were unfortunately named ironically last  night. They did not win, nor did they lose by a large margin. In fact, they ended up with only one point short of the total boasted by last night’s champs.

JohnWing

...or whatever the Jewish equivalent holiday is. Whatever you celebrate this time of year, do it with candy.   The Koolest People in the Bar - How do you know they’re the coolest? Well, they friggin tell you, right there in their name. They wouldn’t call themselves that if it wasn’t true. If you’re some “CNN type” that wants more than a baseless, clearly biased opinion as evidence, take a look at the word “coolest”. Yep, they spelled it with a “K”. Only cool kids do that.   A Pimp and His

How far under is "down"?
JohnWing

Whoa! The competition was fierce, perhaps as fierce as it’s ever been. There were several lead changes throughout the night, and our eventual champions were perhaps not even in the top three until the final score breakdown. Don’t believe me? Fine, but put this recap in your pipe and smoke it!   The Captain Crunch Cereal Killers might have spent too much time caring for various mouth-roof wounds, and not enough time scoring points in the quiz… either way they finished 5th last night.   The Tempura

Wait til you see what she can turn on with her butt!
JohnWing

So hard to believe that so much has happened in just one week! I mean, I lost my wallet, then I went a few days without a wallet (which was… BONKERS. A tale for another day, perhaps), then I found my wallet. Crazy! Man… What else? What else… Oh yeah, there were also 1,000,000 executive orders signed by President Gene Simmons, and now we all have to wear pink on Wednesdays. That (along with the wallet thing) made this week nothing short of 100% wacky. Good thing we had pub quiz - here’s your recap!   Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday,

I'm hoping Ashton Kutcher is getting ready to pop out from behind a soda machine or something.
JohnWing

Well, if he doesn’t, it was nice knowing most of you. I don’t want to seem overdramatic, but we very well may be experiencing our final four orr five days on this, or any planet - due to what’s happening this Friday… and no, I am not talking about half off on Cosmic Bowling. Oh well, at least we got one last quiz in at BricktownE before the end of the world! Speaking of, here’s the recap.   Wapiti joined late, but boy did they join. They certainly made an impression! If not on the scorekeeping record books, then on our hearts.

JohnWing

Slush is a lot easier to drive in than “Gotham is under attack from Mr. Freeze” level iciness, so last night BricktownE was full of quizzers and CFB National Championship viewers, and some folks that were both! What a competition it was last night! It came down to the last second! A huge guy did the splits at the end! I am, of course, referring to both the quiz, and the football game simultaneously.   In 5th place we had Odin's Beard. Of course, in terms of

Time to reflect on another year, blah blah blah...
JohnWing

Well, 2016 is coming to a close. Like a man who got too drunk at a party, vomited into a beloved heirloom, and then hit on the host’s wife before farting and finally leaving – no one is sad to see it go. I was going to point out that yesterday was my birthday, as if that would somehow make any of 2016’s bullshit even remotely okay, but let’s face it: I would have had a birthday regardless of who died or got elected this year. It doesn’t matter at all that I had a nice thing happen to me, Carrie Fisher still died. In  fact, such an across-the-board terrible year inspired me to think back to a particularly good year, to see if maybe there was some balance in

JohnWing

The last quiz before Christmas, and you all know what that means! Oops, that’s supposed to be a question mark. I really don’t know what it means, other than the fact that there is some really dull Christmas music out there. Well, before 98 Degrees puts me all the way to sleep with their underwhelming rendition of The Christmas Song, let’s get those chestnuts a-roastin’!   Zsa Zsa Dahling! paid tribute to the great, now late, Zsa Zsa Gabor. Now, unlike Zsa Zsa, who could walk into any restaurant in the world and get some chumps booted out so she could have her usual table, this team was not able to secure their usual spot. Did this

Sometimes you feel like a nut.
JohnWing

What a tight race we had last night! It was so tight that we even had a tiebreaker to decide 2nd place. It was so tight that Tuco from Breaking Bad was generally okay with how tight it was. It was so tight, that I couldn't fit a third thing!   L Train not only caught the train, but simultaneously caught the L. Their first mistake was calling themselves the L Train, they should have called themselves the L Monorail. Monorails are much cooler, you see.   Little Lebowskis Urban Achievers really tied the room together, but still came out with a 5th place trophy. I don't know

Pluto is my safe word.
JohnWing

“Pluto” used to be a safe word, and then at some point, the powers that be decided that Pluto was no longer qualified. Well, look where we are now! Oh well, Pluto will always be a planet AND a safe word to me, even though I will never use it in either context.   K & B, the dynamic duo. They did their best, but could have used a couple extra team members. However, more team members means splitting the tots between more people. More people, more points... Less people, more tots... points to ponder!   Cleveland Browns – I asked them the inspiration behind their team name, and they explained

Any way you look at it, you're dancing with a wild animal.
JohnWing

Really any sort of inter-species dancing is a rolling dive down a slippery slope of freaky-deaky-ness. Sometimes you just gotta embrace that kink and keep going, sometimes you gotta pump the brakes and correct the QM that it's LINE dancing, not LIVE dancing. Whatever sort of lupine gyration you're into, every point matters. Speaking of points, let's get on with the scores.   The Bulgarian Bulls came in 4th last night. I shared with them that the highest percentage of my heritage that I'm aware of is Bulgarian, but that's about where our similarities stopped. See, I had all the quiz answers, and they did not. There's always next week!   Those
