A Fond Farewell
Wesley

'Twas our last night at Brutopia. It was an emotionally moving experience, and I found myself inspired to write this 100% unique song to memorialize the experience.     [Quiz Master:] There's a sad sort of drinking from a hole in the wall And the music from the PA too And up near the kitchen an absurd little man Is popping out to say Round 2 [Groups: If Jesus Rises On Easter Then He's Not Kosher For Passover, Old + Nerdy, Owen's Hart:] Round 2, Round 2 [Groups: If Jesus Rises On Easter Then He's Not Kosher For Passover, Old + Nerdy, Owen's Hart:] Excitedly they tell us Round 2, Round

Ode to My Sweet Tooth
Wesley

A team had the most deliciously punny name last night; Ceci n'est pas une Peep. The name was so delicious that not only did I literally eat it (they taped Peeps to the top of each score card), but that I felt inspired to write the following poem.   Lovely little yellow fluff Love like Homer's love for Duff   I love to grab those little treats, my loves impossible to behold I love to grab them almost as much As Trump loves grabbing non-consenting muff     A perfect seasonal puffy treat A temptress so sweet But what does it have to do with Christ's Easter rising? Not

Definitely Not Space Jam
Kelsey

We had a very close and a very hopping game of quiz tonight at Brutopia Brewery. Going into Round 8 we had 3 teams tied for first place - The Joy of Sax, Bad Hombres, and the Big Dirty Shithawks. Those three teams ended up taking first, second, and third, in that order. The Joy of Sax was particularly impressive, as it was just a one woman team (who run the world?). We also had a round of slowed down TV theme songs. Unfortunately they were not cool

Compositions Inspired by Round 6.   Soaring on dreams and pure Serenity Bluest eyes of clearest skies Which you have tried Time and again To take away, but you can't Not forever, Fox No You can't take those eyes of sky away from me. -A tribute to Wash from Firefly   You were board to death inside that house I simply rang the bell left of the jamb You were sent a formal invitation I was the victim of nefarious flimflam You had secrets, enemies, and worse But I Am The singing Tele Gram -A tribute

But HIS Face
Kelsey

My guilty pleasure pop artist is, of course, Rihanna. I don't know why, but her songs always get me. On tonight's audio round we listened to one of my favorites, Bitch Better Have My Money. I uncontrollably fist pump while listening to that song. Other Rihanna songs that I have an unnatural affinity towards: Stay, Take A Bow, and the three-way with Kanye and McCartney - FourFiveSeconds. Why do I love Rihanna? That's like asking why cheese is delicious. It just is, so back off. In other powerful women news, we had a question on who won more gold medals in Rio, Katie Ledecky or Michael Phelps. I didn't even look at the answer, assumed it was Ledecky because she's

'Twas the Night of First Quiz And all through the pub The Quizmaster was stirring His first night; not a sub   Arriving quite early For fear of the mixer A fortnight ago It needed a last minute fixer   Running on fortune And blessed by good luck Echoed advice from his "friends" Who all said, "Don't f*** up"   So with game underway Round two, first kerfuffle He couldn't believe it iTunes set to shuffle   An improvised fix puts it all back in order Then he flies through the rounds Like Gandalf in Mordor Fending

The Great Chode Debate
Kelsey

What's in a name? That which we call a chode by any other name would smell as... well, unpleasant???  What is a chode to you? To some it is a short fat penis. To others it is the area between the penis and the butthole (AKA the taint/grundle/gooch). While both definitions appear on Urban Dictionary, people have very strong opinions as to which is correct. I naively grew up not knowing of this controversy. To me, as a former denizen of upstate New York, a chode has always been a penis that is wider than it is long - like a can of cat food or a girl's attempt at a ponytail after she gets a bob haircut (AKA the chode pony). Then I moved to Denver and discovered the Great Chode

The Night of Two Tequila Mockingbirds
Scorpion Woman

Here’s a question that I don’t usually ask: “Wait, is Ricki Lake a doctor?” Last night’s round 7 was audio clips of real or fictional pop-culture doctors who may or may not practice medicine. (Which somehow was not named, “I’m not a doctor but I play one on TV.”) Based on the average score our teams weren’t familiar with this topic but the wrong answers said otherwise. They included: -Dr. House -Dr. Pepper -Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman -Dr. Evil -Dr. Oz -Dr. Ruth And, for your enjoyment, some that were not

Cowboys and Aliens, Mariah and George
Michaela

Last night was a whirlwind of a quiz. Under the weather and losing my voice, I was surprised to find that I was training a new Quiz Master! We had a George Michael throughline tonight, but the team names clearly had a Mariah theme. This week we found out that one of our regular teams won Team Name of the Year! This was achieved by taping a piece of fake hair to each answer sheet, attached to a button that would scream. We had some sexy songs in Round 2, though none by the highly guessed, Boyz 2 Men. In Round 3 I kept wanting to say Cowboys and Aliens. Round 7 was a tough one, and gross to listen to if you were eating. Our 3rd place team, Mariah Carey's New Years

What the Fung is Going On?
Michaela

Our last quiz of 2016 consisted of 12 teams and was on a busy fun night at Brutopia. We had one team playing Fluxx at their table pre-quiz and there was a big 50th birthday party celebration. The mayor of Cranston, Allan Fung, was also in the building (I wonder how well he would have done…).  I don’t really know what to say about this year. A lot of people are ready to move on from 2016. Personally it was a pretty decent year for me and a lot of folks I know. But when you look at the bigger picture this year did suck. Who Tryna? Had to leave before the last two rounds and

Firstly I want to say, Jonpaul has a really strong selfie game. Go back and look through our Geeks Who Drink Rhode Island Facebook. I barely even tried last night but I took one picture and was like “NOPE”. How does he do it? We had a super fun quiz tonight, and a really hard one to boot. Also some of my favorite team names as a new Quizmaster. Kanye West World, Full Frontal Nurdity and Aggressive Stove.
