The night of wild guesses
Christie B

My favorite quiz nights are the ones where people just throw out all kinds of wild guesses. Sometimes they're kind of close, other times, they're way off base, but regardless, they're all hilarious. Tuesday's quiz was the best night of wild guesses that I have had in a while! Here are some of the highlights: One team guessed "Narry Potter" as the main character's name from "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them". They had to figure out the name, knowing that it started with N and ended with R, so Narry Potter was what they came up with. Instead of General Custer, one team guessed Colonel Custard, in a round that was loosely based on the popular

Super festive!
Christie B

At this week's quiz, I e=was remarkably festive. Not Thanksgiving-y festive, as you might have guessed, since quiz was 2 days before Thanksgiving. Nope! I was Christmas-y! Now, violates a personal rule that I made with myself to not start Christmas music, dress, or other cheer prior to the day after Thanksgiving. Regardless, I spent the day at a holiday themed private event, and I take advantage of every provided opportunity to wear something silly or dumb in public. So I showed up to quiz in my holiday outfit, which consisted of a red dress, red tights, an argyle sleeveless cardigan with Christmas cookies on it, wreath earrings, a poinsettia-patterned scarf, and a headband

Commence The Hazing!
Meggan

A little gentle hazing can build character, but ya'll were so nice to our newbie QuizMaster In Training last night he's going to think that ALL Quizzers are this nice. Bwahahahaha, wait until he hosts at a venue with loud drinkers who are not there for Quiz and are upset that they can't hear the game over our very important questions about the periodic table. That is the fire that shapes you into the Quizmaster you were meant to be.   Top prize went to Fellowship of the Onion in a come from behind victory when they scored 14 out of 16 on the final round and used their double on it.

Hey! Well, at least we had fun!
Christie B

Despite distractions happening on the muted TVs in the banquet room at Bethany Public House, we had fun last night at quiz. The booze was a-flowing, for sure! My favorite part of last night's quiz was that there were a lot of answers that were just, "fuck." It was pretty hysterical. When a team didn't know the correct answer, instead of guessing, they just wrote "fuck." I really liked it. Last night, I learned that there's a connection between the Guinness Book of World Records and Guinness Beer. The managing director of the Guinness brewery in the late 1950s wanted to start a book that helped him argue with friends about what the fastest bird was (seriously), so he started

Viscount GreystRoke
Christie B

Heyo! Another great Tuesday in the books at Bethany Public house! We had a lovely time quizzing with the World Series in the background! Couple funny things that happened:   One of my regular teams named themselves, Ladies is pimps, three. I have a desktop background on the PC that I use for my quiz, and it’s a lovely sky scape that says “Ladies is pimps, too.” Like a motivational poster. So this team decided to be Ladies is Pimps, three, which I thought was super clever. A Question in round 1 was about Tarzan, and apparently, his real name is John Clayton,Viscount Greystroke. So

Lisa Pizza

What a time to be alive! But then again, the Winchesters tend to not stay dead for too long anyhow.  I want first and foremost to thank everyone who came out last night! Literally, that was the most fun I've had at any theme quiz ever, because you're all so amazing and the Winchesters are so hunky.And pie! Let's talk about how this all played out! Round one was about everybody's dream car: Baby. And boy, did we start off with a fight. Let me tell you, I know this show. And I've been binge watching it alllllll over again, just to feel prepared. And without a doubt, that dog is named Riot. Sure, Sam tried to call it "Dog" but Amelia just wouldn't

Miss Jackson if you're nasty
Christie B

Happy World Series! Despite the big game, we had a solid constituent of quizzers ready and eager to have some fun! There were 2 new teams to Bethany Public House, which is my favorite thing ever! Couple quick highlights: I quoted an iconic line from Janet Jackson’s “Nasty”, and I don’t think anyone knew what I was talking about. When I read out the answers, I said, “Her first name ain’t baby, It’s Janet. Miss Jackson if you’re nasty”. I thought I was being clever; no one else thought so. We had an entire round about the Marquis de Sade, I watched the movie Quills on Netflix, which is loosely based on his

Spiders in your crevices
Christie B

Howdy friends! It’s getting close to Halloween, so naturally, I got spooked by a huge spider during my quiz. I, like, many others, am not a fan of spiders. In fact, when I got home after my quiz, I took a shower to make sure the spider wasn’t in my hair or clothes or crevices. What would you even do if you found a spider in a body crevice, like in your buttcrack or something. That’s an irrational fear that I face. Aside from the spider, we had a super fun time! Our video round today was about animated show theme songs. It was so fun and nostalgic, and I have been watching episodes of Doug since I got home. Does anyone want to get together and talk about the

A sloth bear is a real thing
Christie B

It was a packed house at quiz on Tuesday! I love when the room is super full, there’s so much energy, I think it makes it more fun! So, I learned today that a sloth bear is a thing. Have you heard of this? How have I been so out of touch for so long? I thought I knew about all of the bears, but apparently I was wrong. Let me tell you a few things about the sloth bear. They are native to the Indian subcontinent, and they are insectivores. They are super dumb looking and have wicked derpy faces. Now, let me share a few quotes from the Wikipedia article about these beasts. “They walk in a slow, shambling motion, with their feet being set down in a noisy, flapping motion.” “Sows

Thrill-thingy? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
Christie B

Sometimes, when I miss a call from my mom, I call her back, and when she answers, I say in a Lurch voice, “You raaaang?” This is relevant because there was a bonus question in last night’s quiz about Lurch and his famous greeting. Per usual, we had a super fun time at quiz last night. We listened to a playlist of songs from famous movie soundtracks, so had our fair share of sing-alongs. Last night’s quiz reminded me of one of my favorite children’s book series about Amelia Bedelia! Remember her! My favorite story was when she went camping with the family. When it came time to “hit the road”, she banged the pavement with a stuck. And

My patronus is a dolphin
Christie B

Happy Tuesday! Tonight’s quiz was a bundle of fun! Here are some of the highlights: There was a question about the Pottermore patronus test. In case you were wondering, my patronus is a dolphin, which I am very cool with. Dolphins are super smart and social and just generally dope, which is the best adjective I could think of to describe their general coolness. The audio round this week was a lullaby round! The songs were a bunch of lullaby covers of popular songs, and by the end I was actually yawning and sleepy. The funniest part is that 2 of my quizzers are expecting a baby soon, and they have just recently started listening to a playlist of those same

Shaking that donkey on the dance floor
Christie B

Hiya buddies! Another lovely Tuesday quiz night in the books! I was very excited to have one of my regular teams back from a long, summer hiatus, Rose Marie’s Jacket! They bring lots of energy and fun to each week’s quiz. Here were some of my favorite moments of the quiz: In round one, I read out 2 definitions, and quizzers had to identify the word. Here was the last one: “Derriere: A domesticated animal of the genus and species Equus asinus”. Almost every team wrote “ass”, which is the correct answer. One team wrote “donkey”. . . Now, I am imagining a hip hop banger about a sexy lady shaking her donkey

Isthmus-schmithsmus
Christie B

Hi buddies! Happy Tuesday! So, let’s talk for a second about the English language. Please allow me to vent for a few. Why do we have words with 4 consonants in a row? Isthmus is a dumb word, and I cannot make my mouth make those sounds in a row. I just can’t. It’s impossible. Can you say it? Please tell me you can’t so that I feel better about myself. Anyways, we had a bunch of fun tonight. I have one new-ish team that writes “Lebron” in for every answer that they don’t know. I had another team that thought the “Surreal Life” might have been a TV show on the Disney Channel. We had 2 questions about Mean Girls,

LaFonda Lopez and Crickety Crick
Christie B

Happy Tuesday! Gotta love a short week! Tonight’s quiz turned out to be super funny, due to some very impressive humor from participating teams. Here are some of the funniest things that happened. I had one brand spanking new team! After greeting them and telling them the rules, I rememded them of my name, and one of the tea members told me her name. Instead of saying, “Nice to meet you” or some other normal response, I said, “Thank you!” So that’s how I started my night. I’m awkward. I laughed OUT LOUD while scoring the visual round Scientific Flare. Picture #2 was a picture of George Washington Carver.

Poop poop
Christie B

Poop poop poop I’ve been waiting for a quiz round about poop. I’ve been a Quizmaster for about 9 months, and I’ve been looking forward to my first poop related round. It was a special day for me. Apparently I’m gross, and I don’t have that much exciting stuff going on in my life because it brought me such joy. Anwho, we had a wicked fun quiz tonight! Round 1 was Recently in Stuff, and there were two questions about the VMAs. Another appropriate question would have been “How many minutes was Beyonce’s VMA performance?” The answer is 16, which is a lot of minutes. But I’m ok with it because it was incredible.

Taylor&Elijah

Hey quizzerinos. Taylor here.  We made it! We made it to the other side of The Geeky Cauldron and we are all a little better for it. I can only imagine how many people are out rewatching and/or re-reading after reliving so many delightful details. When my husband and I started dating he had never read Harry Potter; he had only seen the movies.  He couldn’t understand why people liked Dobby, or (shockingly) why people liked Dumbledore. To him Dobby was just an irritating distraction who served no real purpose and Dumbledore was the guy who yelled at an overwhelmed Harry after his name was drawn for
