Masterful Bullhockey Artistry
Shannon

A solid seven teams turned out for last evening's event, in a brainpower battle the likes of which will never be seen again. We hope. Naah; ya'll weren't so bad. Don't tell anyone, but I actually like hanging out with you lot. For the first time since their fairly-recent debut, the Bullshit Artists won the night, followed closely by Haus of Bear & The Man Himself. In general, it was a good, high-scoring game, with only a 9 point spread between the top 5 teams. As far as the other two, Husband 2nite was new and left early, and the DKs are lovely people, and their mothers love them very much.

The Fault Is Not In Our Stars But In Our Birkenstocks
Shannon

Four of my favorite teams joined us for the quiz last night, and there was truly no telling who would win it. Since The T-Birds were 6-strong, it seemed likely that they would have good odds, but when Haus of Bear & Vixen jokered up on the highest-scoring audio round of the evening, they shot into a lead I didn't think anyone could make up. It wasn't until round 8, when the rest of the jokers got played, that the T-Birds swooped in and snatched the thing out from under them, soaring off with the win.   The Vixen graced us with her presence last night, and had

Inconvenient Truths
Shannon

A whopping 8 teams met last night for a skirmish of wit and weirdness that's only possible at O'Henry's. We're always delighted, of course, when new and enthusiastic teams join us. Only partly because it's fun to watch the looks on their faces as we do things our way. The Mulkateers sure seemed to be having a good time, whooping it up and bellowing out wisecracks as though they'd been with us, all along. I have to assume that the Suburban Dilfs enjoyed themselves as well, since they were still grinning when it was all over. Unless that was because they didn't come in last. Or they were just grinding their teeth.  I was

Unintentional Poetry
Shannon

Six teams played the game last night, including some new guys from Kentucky who wanted to be called "The New Guys." I fixed it for them. After a feisty battle, Mommy Drinks Because You Cry earned a (boisterous) win for the first time in a while. But that's not why you're here. Here's what else went on last night.  The one I call The Enigma kept putting these wonderful superhero stickers on everything. He even put The Joker on the joker! I think there is a special place in heaven for joy-bringers like this. It might be a little sticky, but it has flair.    The Pineapple queen

Top 10 Reasons I Didn't Write a Blog This Week
Shannon

Top 10 Reasons I Didn't Write A Blog This Week   10) I am considering going on strike until Jack learns to control himself during the audio rounds. I would be lying if I said I didn't fantasize about obscure medieval silencing devices.     9) After the guy from The Bullshit Artists, our second place team, danced the answer to the Harlem Shake question, my humble blogging began to seem an insufficient method of expressing myself. I am now coping with deep and torturous feelings of inadequacy.8) There are only so many times that Haus of Bear & The Man Himself can

Chanel No. 9?
Danielle

  Spring has finally fallen into full swing and our quizzes now start when the sun is still high in the sky, but Jack is still behind the bar so we’re still in the same boat really. A very drunk, gay boat.  We began out post St. Patty’s Day quiz off with a few witty jokes and banter from the crowd, but as the night went on, and drinks flowed heavier, and ya’ll got damn rowdy. I love the O’Henrys crew because you don’t hold back and always have something to say about it. We have a damn good time together and play this quiz quiet properly. With a good constant rivalry between, Trivial Hirsuits, Haus of Bear, Mommy

Yanking Your Daisy Chain
Shannon

The seven teams that gathered at O'Henry's for last night's pub quiz, or maybe just to hear Jack say weird shit. Either way, it got a bunch of folks in the door, and I got to read a bunch of nonsense into a microphone and give away some boner beers and bar tabs, so I think we all won, in the end. The game had a pretty substantial spread, but there were several teams who stayed close throughout. With Haus of Bear & The Man Himself united again for the first time in a while, though, I knew everyone else faced a formidable challenge. The Bear said he was sure he'd made at least a thousand paper cranes in his lifetime, but that he was still waiting

The Sounding of the Alarm
Shannon

What a doozy, y'all! As always, I was afraid I'd be quizzing to a nearly empty house right up until moments before the thing was scheduled to start, and then there you all were, shining and wonderful, just in the nick of time. It should not go without mention, though, that we did have a special guest, last night, and she was on time, too. Early, even! Our marvelous and dislocated friend Jana, of team Mommy Drinks Because You Cry was back to join us, reminding me with her charming quips (and adorable dimples) why we miss her so. A new guy who called himself Ducky Two Fucks (for some reason) was there and trying the event on for size,

Hormusement
Shannon

As I sit, at long last, to write about the events of Monday evening, I hope that you all will forgive me for its delayed completion. It's hard to believe that two days have passed since then, and yet it seems a month ago now that I viewed all of your visages. Except in the photos I took this week. A couple of which I probably owe someone an apology for. Oof. Sorry about those...  I could, and might even be contractually obligated to, mention that there were 5 teams at O'Henry's for the quiz, that The Trivial Hirsuits won the hell out of the game. I could also tell you about how Queen P. knew (and I do mean knew) enough to tell us, without

Percolating: It's Not Just For Coffee Anymore!
Shannon

After 5 weeks on top, even the most enduring stallion would be ready for a change of position, so all eyes were on the T-Birds last night, waiting to see if they could maintain their ...direction. As the game progressed, I kept double-checking the score sheet, hardly believing how close the scores stayed the whole time. When we reached the final round with only 7 points separating the highest and lowest-scoring teams, and nary a joker yet used, it was absolutely anyone's game. The DKs hadn't been around for a while, so I don't think anyone really expected that they were going to sweep in and upset the reigning champions. Even going

Can you point Me in the Right Direction of the Cervix
Danielle

Considering I got to see most of your beautiful faces twice this past week, I think I’m the lucky one. Then again ya’ll got to play 2 quizzes this week, and see me host twice. So I guess we are all winners in this game of life. Either way, it’s been a fun, long week of quizzing, hosting, and being a diva.  Even with the Saturday night debauchery, all of our regulars came out to battle for the gold. T-Birds made their claim to first once again. They started out strong and never wavered. Haus of Bear &TMH did their best to beat them, but they didn’t quite make it. Now although these two were team mates on Saturday night,

Going To Your Flappy Place
Shannon

Four fancy teams showed up to fight it out last night, so it was a face off between The T-Birds, Mommy Drinks Because You Cry, Haus of Bear & The Man Himself, and Cerebral Vortex that ended, again, with The T-Birds on top and Mommy Drinks just baaaaarely behind them. Based on the look I saw in the eye of Mommy Drinks, I would venture to say that it's extremely unlikely that it will go down the same way next week. I think they're not having it, and we all know that ultimately, no matter what, The Queen (Pineapple) gets what she wants. For now, though, congratulations are due to the monochromatic men with the

Measuring the Length of Your Large Intestine: A Practical Guide
Shannon

Just when I was asking Jack what we'd do if we only had two teams present to play, all the rest of y'all dragged your not-quite-fashionably lagging butts in the door and, suddenly, it was a 7-team game.    Lucky for us, this lot included the (now 3-time) champion T-Birds, Haus of Barren Vixen (so cleverly named in the absence of The Bear), Chris Oaks, another solo player who joins us on the semi-regular,  a two-person version of The Raspberry Berets, some guys who walked in and joined us starting at round 3, The O-Town Boys (Men), Mommy Drinks Because You Cry

When Mom is Away the Kids Will Play
Danielle

Since our wonderful O’Henrys matriarch was off doing her civic duty as a women and marching in D.C.; I was able to jump into the shenanigans that is Monday Night Pub quizzing. It’s always a pleasure to sub here, and last night y'all brought the thunder. With 9 teams that showed up, we were a full house. T-Birds made an astounding leap in the end, finally passing Haus of Bear &TMH. Both Haus and Heathers Whores were battling for first all night. Until in the last round where T-Birds flexed their brain muscles and pushed out some serious African Political and super carrier knowledge for the win.

No Mention of That One Guy
Shannon

Our Pub Quiz was attended by four teams fulla folks last night, including some we haven't seen in a while, and one team that, after almost two years of consistently playing under the same name, upped the ante a little bit and changed their moniker to something a bit more adult. And maybe a bit more accurate. So, it was The Trivial Hirsuits, The T Birds, The Long Distance Lovers, and... Mommy Fucks Cuz UR Hard at our little event, and this is how it all went down.  In Round 4, I inquired about what prosthetic was used by Leo Fender, Peter Falk, and Sammy Davis Jr.. The first person to comment

Ashamed Mary
Shannon

While the rest of Asheville still cowered in their domiciles from the three inches of snow that happened three days ago, four teams of brave adventurers arrived, to my relief and delight, at O'Henry's just in time to play a little pub quiz.  As many of you know, for a long time now there have been certain questions that are declared to be higher stakes than others, on account of the fact that getting them wrong could lead to the revocation of one's gay card. I sometimes guess which questions those might be, but it's you, dear players, who really make this determination. Tonight happened to be a really good night for these kinds of questions, though, and
