Let's all listen to the Shrek Soundtrack
Christie B

Hey y’all! Another fun Tuesday night quiz I the books. Welcome to the 2 new teams who came tonight! And welcome back to one of our regular team, Rose Marie’s Jacket and the Funky Bunch. They haven’t been around in a while, so it was great to see them. There is a weird cosmic force that’s continually bringing Smash Mouth’s All Star into our quiz, and personally, I am enjoying it. A few weeks ago, we had a video round where every clip included the beginning of the song, “Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me. I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed . . .” People started to mumble and groan a bit after

50 Cent, the novelist
Christie B

Whoa! We filled up every available table in the Bethany Public House banquet room last night. Thanks so much to everyone who came out! There were tons of new teams, too! I love crazy nights with lots of new faces. It was rainy and cold outside, and coincidentally, we had a visual round that was called, “I’m so wet . . . because it’s raining”. What a coincidence! And then also, our round 1 was about mud. It’s like they know what we’re going through this week in Oregon! (Or maybe it’s completely a coincidence, and it just rains all the freaking time here. I prefer to think that this quiz was specifically for us. Now for this week’s

Die or nah?
Christie B

Happy Tuesday! We had a full house at quiz tonight, and those are always my favorite nights. Tonight’s audio round was definitely one of my favorites! Besides the fact that almost all teams KILLED this round, it was also really hilarious. It was a bunch of covers of popular songs as whined/hummed by a fake Thom Yorke, Radiohead frontman. It was truly hysterical. And just when you thought it was done, I played them again!!!!! Last week, we had an issue with teams not being able to identify Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on multiple occasions. This week, we had a movie quotes round, and someone guessed Ferris Bueller’s Day Off for a quote that was definitely not from

Bueller . . . Bueller . . . Bueller
Christie B

Well, it’s Mardi Gras! We didn’t quite celebrate during the quiz, but we did have a nice themed round where we listened to some second line marching band covers of hit songs. That was a blast! However, in addition to Mardi Gras, there were several other national holidays of note. National Tooth Fairy Day – we had an entire round dedicated to teeth and fairies! National Chocolate Souffle Day (although I didn’t have any soufflé) National Public Sleeping Day – the only places I went today were work and quiz, and I don’t think it would have been a good look to fall asleep in either place.

That newest song by Justin Timberlake . . .
Christie B

Heeeeeeeeeey everyone! Another exciting Tuesday in the books! The night started out strong when a regular quizzer arrived super early and volunteered to sharpen ALL of my pencils. Everyone at quiz owes her a big thank you, as they were starting to look a little dull. So anyways, it started off on a high note, and continued on that throughout the night. It was Ashley's birthday! I don't know Ashley personally, but that didn't stop me from encouraging the entire room to join in on the Happy Birthday sing when Cain, from the wonderful Bethany Public House wait staff, brought in a dessert with a candle on it. So we embarrassed her, but I hope she enjoyed it! You guys,

Write me some poetry for Valentine's Day
Christie B

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you’re having whatever pleasant experience floats your boat. In a silent act of bitter protest for the holiday, I played an “Ant-Valentine’s Day” playlist on Spotify. It featured such fine gems as: Fuck You by CeeLo Green Single Ladies by Beyoncé Cry Me a River by Justin Timberlake 99 Problems by Jay-Z It’s a great playlist. Anywho, we had 8 lovey dovey teams tonight. One team brought me a red velvet cupcake, which was delish. Highlight of the week: One team, a table of regulars, wrote some really funny poetry as their team name.

Betsy Will Be DeVostating...just to children is all.
PFS

I know you asked me to give you a recap of the wonderful quiz that took place last night, but I’d like to shift the discussion to something that seems to never get covered by the press...quiz-related acts of terror.  That’s right.  I’m tired of it not being talked about, for reasons we all know the press has.  You know, the people that are the most dishonest and terrible people that ever existed in our time.  It’s just gotten ridiculous.  They’d much rather talk about perfectly legal, fantastic, some people are saying the most fantastic, quiz-ecutive orders; things that will completely protect our quizzes

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

Shameful Satire for the Wonderful Folks From Last Night
PFS

President’s Log - Day 12: Wow, I mean, just wow.  What a hell of first couple weeks for me, right?  Could it get any better?  Well, maybe if those fake-crying, huge loser Dems would stop being sore losers and just approve all my cabinet appointees I could finally relax.  I made the best cabinet, I’ve heard, I’ve made the best, people are saying I’ve made the best cabinet appointments...so what’s the big hold up?  I’m glad my fellow Republicans decided to do what I always do and just change the rules...it’s simply really.  They say you

They gave me cake, so I'm happy
Christie B

This was a great Tuesday. It was my friend Jason’s birthday! He came to quiz and gave me a piece of birthday cake, so I was the happiest gal. Let’s make this a thing, Bethany Public House quizzers. Bring me cake! Doesn’t matter the occasion – birthdays, holidays, days off from work. Just always bring me cake ok? That’s a general rule. Each week, I get more and more impressed by the creativity of my Tuesday crew. This week, we had a round called JK, JK which was all about famous people with the initials JK. These mofos made up all kinds of fun JK names when they didn’t know the answers. Here are some of my favorites: Juno

Your nethers smell like fish
Christie B

Happy day everyone! It finally started thawing out here in Portland, so we’re able to return to everyday life. As much as I enjoyed a little leniency in terms of work, I, for one, couldn’t wait to get out of my house. I get wicked stir-crazy, so it was nice to get back to the office for my regular day job. We had a wicked fun quiz on Tuesday. I want to share with you the shenanigans of this week’s winning team. Round 3 was all about food, and this team wrote my random notes related (ish) to the foods in the question. Here are four of my favorites. Cake (Hell yes! Fat kidz unite!) Soup (as in, “my pants are soup”) Onion

A little party never killed snowbody
Christie B

Oh the weather outside is FRIGHTFUL! What a snowy evening! We got close to an inch of snow on the ground in the one hour that we were quizzin’ tonight at Bethany Public House! We had a great showing of brave warriors who wouldn’t let a little snow keep them from their chance at glory. Twas a fun night – we did a slightly abbreviated quiz, but made it through 6 strong rounds! I learned something very important tonight. My regulars at Bethany Public House know the shit out of celebrity names. Three out of five competing teams got perfect scores on our unusual 16-point visual round tonight where they had to identify celebrity dopplegangers. I was muy impressed. I

The Careless Whisper Song
Christie B

Let’s mash up the lyrics of Careless Whisper by George Michael with the lyrics of The Whisper Song by the Ying Yang Twins. It’s going to be awful. Here we go. Read it in your head with the rhythm and tone of a spoken word artist. It’s quite romantic. Hey how you doin lil mama? lemme whisper in your ear I'm never gonna dance again Tell you sumthing that you might like to hear Guilty feet have got no rhythm You got a sexy ass body and your ass look soft Though it's easy to pretend Mind if I touch it? and see if its soft Naw I'm jus playin' unless you say I can I know you're not a fool And im known

My fake New Year's resolutions
Christie B

It’s about to be the New Year! Who’s excited?! I sure am! Yeah, yeah. I’m grateful for my life and my health and all that, but 2016 has been relatively shitty, so I’m looking forward to making some changes in the New Year. For some laughs, I’m going to make a list of fake New Year’s resolutions that are inspired from tonight’s round themes. Without any further ado, here are my New Year’s Resolutions for 2017: Fuck you – Round number one was “This Year in Stuff”, and yeah, maybe it was just some reused current events questions from 2016, but still, fuck you and fuck this year.

The Finch Who Stole Christmas
Christie B

Happy Holidays! Are you in the holiday spirit yet? I wasn’t for a while, but I think I’m getting close. I’ve eaten, like, 5 mini candy canes per day for the past week, which I think means I’m super spirited. Plus the holidays are a good excuse to buy things and wear things that are glittery without people getting mad at you when glitter ends up on them, so that’s my jam.   It was packed last night at quiz! ALL of the tables were taken in the Bethany Public House back room. I love it when it’s busy, all the energy in the room makes me super hyped up.

Yeezus is the reason for the season
Christie B

Well, it’s finally winter here in Portland. Two snow events in two weeks! Luckily, they hold off until Wednesdays, so our Tuesday night quiz doesn’t get interrupted.   We had a great quiz this week that started off Christmas-y with a first round about reindeer! It brought back some old memories about the Christmas children’s story, Olive the Other Reindeer. Remember back when Pottery Barn used to cell CDs select books at the register? I feel like my mother bought Oliver the Other Reindeer for me at a Pottery Barn. Apparently, they made a movie out of it with Drew Barrymore voicing Olive.   Anywho, this quiz’s

Dr. Vajazzle
Christie B

When’s the last time that you watched The Year without a Santa Claus? I assigned my quizzers some homework to go home and watch it, because it’s a super great film. It’s about a year when Santa gets a cold right before Christmas so he leaves the present delivery to his elves. Santa gets really sad and doesn’t think anyone believes in him anymore, and then sad stuff happens. I’m not describing it well, but it’s great, so just watch it, ok? I mention it because there was a question about the Heat Miser and Snow Miser from the movie, and not many teams got it correct! They sing a super catchy song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SGlPnA_iCk  At
