The Street We Go, We Do Not Need Roads
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

It wasn't a line we had in our round last night, which, gotta give props to the writers of these Quizzes because that round was amazing. It is one of my favorite lines, and had to run it through Google Translate a few times. But I think the point comes across. In any case, another one for the books last night. We talked movie lines, Ed Sheeran, and newspaper. I mean there was obviously a lot more to it, as you can't just fill a Quiz with three topics and keep people entertained. Then again, with enough alcohol, you could entertain anyone with just about any sort of topic.  One of those topics we also talked about were the upcoming themed Quizzes we have at Geeks Who Drink. A few

Studying Sucks!
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

Apparently Friday the 13th is luckier than Monday the 13th. Which makes sense. Mondays are awful in general. Unless of course you're taking part in a Quiz. But since this Monday was riddled with snow, kicked off midterm week for UWM, and the Milwaukee roads are a disaster, it's safe to say that this Monday is rather unlucky. But it was lucky for the people who braved the storm to come out to Puddler's Hall tonight. Then it was a very lucky night indeed.  Obviously I have to say studying sucks because, well, it does. Of course it's ironic considering I want to go into teaching. But that's another story. In the mean time, while I'm still a student, studying is the fucking worst.

#NotMyQuiz (Boo)
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

For the last few weeks, I've had a really great turnout. Like incredibly up from last year. That said, a lot of my teams gave me a pretty good scare tonight. 7:15 and the house was pretty much empty. But by Quiz time, the house was packed, the butts were in the seats, and we were good to go. Which isn't to say I wouldn't have rocked it with a few teams, but it's a lot more fun for the Quizzers, as much as it is for me, if it's a full house. See, when the competitive side comes out in everybody, EVERYBODY gets into it.  Tonight, that statement was probably the most evident. Not only were all 7 teams within a ten point range, 70-79, but our top three teams were ALL one point away

What the Bork?
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

Tonight, it's safe to say we had what was, by far, my favorite audio round ever. For those who didn't take part, it was eight covers all sung, I guess you could say sung, by the Swedish Chef of Henson fame. I honestly have never laughed so hard during an audio round. Speaking of audio, our video round was awesome, and annoying all at the same time. While every scene incorporated the song "All Star" by Smash Mouth, a lot of the clips were perfectly synced up to the clip. Even if I now hate that song with a fiery passion.  I'd say speaking of a fiery passion, but I honestly don't have a segway for that one. It was a pretty typical night at Puddler's Hall. They came. They saw. They

The Slave of Duty is Whizzing
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

Not sure how much of that has to do with anything, but it was the first thing that came to mind when I was thinking of blog titles so it counts. As most anyone can tell you, when it comes to the first thing to pop in my head, it's usually a keeper. Or ends with a groan, but if I'm laughing, that's good enough for me. Speaking of laughing, I couldn't help but laugh at the smartassedness of our writers and the trick question they had for the last question of the Quiz. Though to be fair, a lot of workout suppliments DO sound like X-Men storylines, so it's not all that hard to believe.  I've been mentioning it the last few weeks, and tonight is no exception. Tonight, we hit two

Miss Manners Would Be Amused by Electric Tickles
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

Okay, maybe not amused, but I'm sure if I played it right, I could get at least a chuckle out of her. Hell, I've gotten chuckles out of most of my regulars. Definitely had some doozies tonight. Between my puns about Schindler's List, all tastefully done, I assure you, and the fact that the Russians are no longer rushin' to take zillionaires to the International Space Station, it was a pun filled evening. Also had a good one that made people genuinely laugh, not the usual chortles or boos. Though why they were surprised I could be genuinely funny, is beyond me. I'm downright hilarious.  Tonight was another night of 6+ teams at Puddler's Hall. That makes every week since

I'm Too Hexy For This Quiz
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

I mean, I'm too hexy for a lot of things, but I think I'm just hexy enough for Puddler's Hall. In any case, when your Quiz features Right Said Fred and the original term for the Allen wrench in the same night, what do you expect my blog title to be? In any case, I have to say that this Quiz was amazing for the sole reason that this was the sixth straight week of at lest 6 teams. For a few months last year, we had maybe three teams on a good night. But now, the more people who show up, the better it gets. For one, it's more competitive. For another, the energy is a lot better. Well, there's more of it. From everybody. Myself included. Then again, it could just be that there's nothing

Oy Vey! Eight Is Enough
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

Actually, I'm always down for more at Puddler's. I hope to repack the house one of these days. But tonight was definitely the best turnout we've had all year. I'll be honest, I was actually a little worried given the snow we've got going on around here, but I've said it before and I'll say it again, the post office could learn a thing about dedication from my regulars. That said, tonight was a heck of a lot of fun. I'm also really hoping I can use this newfound traction to get more themed Quizzes to Milwaukee. Of course it all depends on what Quizzes we have and how big the calling is for them here. But I know people who know people so I'm hopeful.  I have to admit, while

Pope-in' Ain't Easy
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

Especially if you're this cool new Pope. I promise I'm not gonna go into some long winded blog about how Pope Francis is probably the coolest Pope ever. For one, I'm not Catholic so I don't really know all the ins and outs of Pope-ing. For two, well, I guess it's just that one. But Pope Awesome totally called out Trump, so that really says all you need to know about him. Pope Palpatine a few years ago, ya know, that old German dude, probably would have sided with him on everything he's doing wrong and he'd have a whole new surge of Anti-Normals to do his bidding. I say Anti-Normals because I won't use Alt-Right, because that's as bad as calling lies Alternative Facts, and I don't

No, You're a Four Eyed Butt Brain!
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

It would seem I'm taking Blog advice from my fifth grade nephew with a title like that. But as two of our rounds dealt with an optometrist's profession as well as the fact that we had an entire round in which the answers were either "Butt" or "Brain" it was only a matter of time until someone used it as an insult. Like I told my Quizzers, I'm an Ass, not a Butt. I'd have used that as my blog title, but we're not really supposed to swear in our blog titles, and even with those little asterisk things, people totally know what you're talking about anyway, hence mentioning it in the body of the blog.  I tell my Quizzers on a semi-regular basis that they're the reason

You Gotta Love The Oversight
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

More on my part than anything. Normally I don't read over my Quiz until I'm at the bar, mainly to make sure I remember answer order, as well as being able to pronounce any unfamiliar words. Which is why it didn't even occur to me that there was a huge opportunity for Quizzers to get an answer to a Round 8 question just by looking around. Apparently when you have a question about the point position on a dartboard and it completely goes over your head that the bar in which you do your Quiz has, not one, but two dart boards, that's a guaranteed point for your Quizzers right there. But everyone was a good sport about it. I just found it funny.  Speaking of funny, whoever wrote our

New Year, Same Quiz
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

It's the first Quiz of 2017. To say it's a new Quiz would be poppycock. Well, that's not true. It's the same format, but it's new material. Speaking of new, we debuted our new score packets at Puddler's this week. Yes, they've been out for while, but I wanted to go through my old stock first. Needless to say, my Quizzers will need time to get used to them. Heck, I'll need time to get used to them, too. But they say change is a good thing, right? Almost as good as the Abbott's Booby. And no, it's not what you're thinking. It's a bird. Or so I'm told. Quiz tonight consisted of various rounds. Ya know, cause that's how the game works. What did those rounds consist of?

Wanna Get in the Ring?
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

It's Boxing Day. Yet not one mention of any sort of boxers at Puddler’s Hall tonight. Not Muhammed Ali, nor George Forman, nor the terrier. What we did mention, a few times for some reason, was Angelina Jolie. Again, why, I have no idea. But we mentioned her a few times. Not that she bears mentioning even once in a Quiz. What we also mentioned was the hilarity that is the fact that millions of people donated to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence’s name. As well as half a round on Benedict Cumberbatch and a few questions about blow jobs. And the ever favorite holiday, Steak and a Blow Job Day. I don’t celebrate it, per say, because steak is expensive, and if you don’t

If you were at my Quiz tonight, you realize why I'm referencing the Grinch. I tried to have an Ugly Sweater party at m Quiz tonight. Granted I only thought of it a week ahead. No prep time, no pre-planning. Exactly what you want in a party. In any case, I was representing in my Ugly Sweater, plastered front and center, The Grinch. This time of year, he's basically my spirit animal. It's true, I hate this time of year. I mean I love surprising my friends with presents, but more the pageantry of it. Well, moreso the fact that I'm a joker and my family puts me on a leash. But whatever, that's what liquor and friends are for.  Speaking of liquor and friends, tonight was a decent

I Feel Like This Week Is Bad For Everyone
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

Don't get me wrong, it's always a good time at Puddler's. But at the same time, this week's Quiz was definitely killer for all my teams. It's rare that all my scores are below 70. Tonight was one of those nights. I gotta say, I feel for my Quizzers. Truly. I mentioned last week that I'm currently in school. What I didn't mention last week was the four peer reviews, three papers, two exams, and the partridge in the pear tree that I have to accomplish in the next 48 hours. I'm not looking forward to it. If it was as fun and easy as running a Quiz, BRING IT! But because this actually requires studying, and research, and all the fun that goes with it, I'm not looking forward to it.  What

I Have Found My Happy Place
Jake. Just Jake. One word. Like Madonna.

Most, if not all of my regulars know that I am currently enrolled as a full time student. What they don't know is that this current semester has been kicking my ass. It hasn't been good. But what has been good is the fun and relaxation that happens at Puddler's Hall. For someone like me, there really is no better way to destress than to be surrounded by cool people, crack stupid jokes, and basically get paid to have fun. It definitely doesn't hurt that my attendance has been up a bit more than usual the past few months, and the more people, the more fun the Quiz is. Granted I'm still gonna be cracking jokes, but the vibe is different when there's more people, it's just more entertaining.  I
