Dwayne the swamp and the bathtub
Katherine

Let’s start with an amazing joke in honor of this week’s winning team, Drain the Swamp, Fill the Cesspool.   Knock knock … Who’s there? Dwayne! Dwayne who? Dwayne the bathtub, I’m dwowning! [insert crying laughing emoji face]   I know you all missed me and my terrible jokes the last two weeks ;-) In case you didn’t miss me and you want more Isabel (March 13th & 20th sub quizmaster) in your lives, you can visit her on Wednesday nights for Trivia Factory at HQ.   Here are some notable achievements

Shania Twain is Everything
Isabel

Once again, I had the privilege to be your substitute quizmaster at the fabulous Draft Station, what with Katherine's continuing computer problems... such a bummer.  However, I had an absolute blast MCing for y'all tonight! Tonight was a bit Beauty & the Beast themed, a bit Shania Twain themed. Works for me. Did you guys see Beauty in the Beast? Typical Disney schlock but surprisingly tolerable, especially for those Downton Abbey fans (Dan Stevens in a motion capture suit, anyone?). It was certainly better than Cinderella (barf). Our quiz tonight progressed swimmingly, with you guys killing a number of rounds, especially the visual. You guys really know your live action

Consult the Scumdex
Isabel

Hi y'all, Isabel here, filling in for Katherine as her computer is on the fritz. It was a great pleasure being at Draft Station this evening, snarfing down some tasty pizza and brews and looking at all you fine people. And so many great people there were tonight! We had a few in-and-outs, but a final count of 7 teams made for a lively night... with a tie-breaker to cap it all off! Our first round had a bunch of comic book hero references, including "Wolverine" ... which reminds me, did anyone else see Logan this past week? Jeez, it was depressing AF. I guess once you place a comic book movie in the future you can do whatever you want. (And according to the

Womp womp
Katherine

That's the sound of my computer slowly dying whilst I hold the screen in one hand and type with the other. FYI, I can't really see this blog post well (thanks to a marginally functional screen). Therefor, it will be short and, possibly, containing typos. Huzzah! Congrats to Willem Dafoe's penis for this week's win! And, in spite of their ailment, Case of the Mondays took home second. Everyone else deserves 50 thumbs up for participating and having fun. I shall end this lamest blog post ever and run my computer to the Emergency Room for, hopefully, a quick repair. TTFN!

Offs Lout Dike (aka Afsluitdijk)
Katherine

This week, in a show of support for Warren Beatty, your quiz host (me) awarded first place to the wrong team – womp womp. #GeeksOrTheOscars But it was definitely intentional. Many people agree with me. An extremely credible source said that Dick Tracy loved it. #fakenews   The true winner of the quiz is If you thought you won the Best Picture Oscar, you're in La La Land. Second place goes to If you think you're winning this quiz, you're in La La Land! I blame the name for the unfortunate mix-up – I was primed to believe they would win. #trollsohard Third place went to Desperately

On this day ...
Katherine

Another Monday quiz shared with a holiday of sorts. I feel pretty strongly that, if presents aren’t given out, then it’s not actually a holiday. So, instead of talking about “Presidents’ Day” in this blog, I’ll tell you some fun and random facts about February 20th. - February 20th is the 51st day of the year and is most likely to fall on a Monday, Wednesday, or Saturday. - On Feb. 20th, 1935, Caroline Mikkelsen became the first woman to step foot in Antartica. - Famous (infamous?) people born on Feb. 20th – Rihanna, Kurt Cobain, Cindy Crawford, Charles Barkley,

More terrible poetry!
Katherine

Roses are redViolets are blueGeeks quizzes are amazing Just like all of you! This pre-Valentine’s Day quiz was, as always, super fun. So many geeks showed their love for Geeks by braving the cold, snowy/rainy weather to test their trivia skills. There were winners - The leprechaun tells me to burn things, losers - everyone else. (Remember, if you’re not first, you’re last), and hilarious/ridiculous answers. Question 5 in Round 6 (asking for the Australian term for “fanny pack”) provided the best answers of the quiz: - Wilcram (apparently

Welcome to the Good Burger, home of the good burger.
Katherine

  Fact: 3 out of 5 Geeks don’t know what puttanesca is or how delicious it tastes. According to the man behind the curtain (aka the quiz writers), spaghetti plus anchovies, red pepper, and olives is “spaghetti alla puttanesca”. The internet confirms this information. Alternative Facts: Princess Consuela Banana Hammock states that this pasta dish is called “spaghetti alla proscutto” and that “proscutto” is a more refined form of prosciutto. According to We're Not Wrong! These Are Alternative Facts! it is actually named “spaghetti alla prostitutto”. But

Who cares about an Oxford comma? I do!
Katherine

For those of you who don’t understand and appreciate the need for the Oxford comma, just do a Google image search of “Oxford comma meme”. I warn you, the images are a bit disturbing but you’ll never question the need for an Oxford comma again. More wordplay fun was had by this week’s winning team – Tacocat goes both ways! Despite the awesome name, they didn’t win me over for best team name. That honor goes to our second place team – Cap’n Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters. If you don’t understand it, you’re dead to me. (JK, just look it up). We saw the return

Artsy Fartsy
Katherine

Artsy Fartsy This week, I used my fancy pants skills to turn water into wine. JK Actually, I used a fun little app to transform our team pictures into amazing, award-winning art! Both versions are in the slideshow to your left. Check it.   The quiz was, as always, a blast. Pow! took first place but first place team name goes to our second place winner – Appeasement Begins With A PP. har har har! Random Guess? came in third, just one point behind PP. Lastly, fourth place went to Teach Me How to Bucky – the only team to get

The most epic battles of 2017 (so far)
Katherine

The most epic battles of 2017 (so far) Alabama vs Clemson – Clemson won. Geek vs Geek (vs Geek vs Geek, etc) – Geeks won. Trivia host vs All the electronics - computer screen on the fritz. cell phone battery on it’s last leg. Owner ready to destroy them both a la Office Space – “PC Load Letter? What the f** does that mean?!” – outcome: TBD. Come back next week for more blood, guts, and gore! Jk … come back for more fun trivia. But first, watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s, please. Why? Because all but one team missed the quote from Holly Golightly aka Audrey Hepburn in Round 7 of the quiz this week.

Katherine

A few fun facts about crack in the form of popcorn: Fiddle Faddle = popped popcorn covered with either caramel or butter toffee and mixed with peanuts.Cracker Jacks = molasses-flavored caramel-coated popcorn and peanutsPoppycock = clusters of popcorn, almonds, and pecans covered in a candy glaze. Screaming Yellow Zonkers = popcorn with a yellow sugary glaze   All of these are guaranteed to give you diabetes and are super fun to say.   The first quiz of year 2017 (aka “A New Hope”) was fun and tough.

Post Christmas Shenanigans
Katherine

Twas a night filled with laughter, competition, new friends, old friends and lots of out-of-towners. It was our last quiz of 2016 - we survived! Next time we meet, it will be 2017 - a year that will have more awesomeness and less dead celebrities.  A quick recap of our day-after-Christmas quiz:There was a sudden death overtime tribute to George Michael - Time can never mend the careless whispers of a good friend ultimately prevailed over I'm Never Gonna Dance Again.There were silly ass answers such as:   - Bill Clinton's pre-presidency job was "saxophonist"   - Bill Clinton's pre-presidency

Up In the Air
Katherine

This week’s blog was written on a plane and uploaded in an airport in order to get to you on time. Have no fear, I shall return before our next quiz (Monday, December 26) – the final quiz of 2016! But first, here’s the rundown for this week: We are a team on the wind, watch how we score! - their team name should have been “watch how we win” (because they won, obviously). They did this by killing it in Round 2 (15/16 and a Joker!) and Round 3 (14/16). Felice Never Did came in second place with impressive scores in Round 2 (10/16), Round 3 (13/16), and Round 8 (11/16).

Visual Round for the win!
Katherine

Here’s what I learned from this week’s quiz – on Dec. 31st, we all need to dream about haws, eggplants, and Mount Fuji. Apparently, that will bring us good luck in 2017. And we definitely need 2017 to be a good year … two thumbs down to 2016. In other news, I give two thumbs up to this week’s quiz. As referenced in the blog title, the visual round was a piece of cake for our teams this week – yay! No one's gay for Moleman took home first prize (Draft Station gift cards!) thanks to a stellar showing in Round 2 (13 points!). Our team split worse than Luther and the Catholic Church
