The First Quiz is the Deepest
Erin

Last night was an evening of firsts for the quizzers at Stick+Stone: - A member of The Big Leboxski, who fancies himself a sharpened-pencil aficionado, got first pick from a set of virgin GWD pencils, then popped it's graphite cherry thoroughly. - Round 1 featured the first, and probably the last, question on tennis we'll likely have all year. - Team Kristen and Kevin became the first late-arriving team to NOT place last, even after missing all of Round 1! - This was our first dance with a Google-translated quotes round. And honestly, the fact that "pod bay" DIDN'T immediately make all of you

"Femrection" is Totally a Word
Erin

Femrection /fem-rek-shuhn/ (n) (1) The indescribable joy I get when hosting quiz to a bunch of nerds (see: last night's quiz at Stick+Stone); (2) Physiology. That tingling sensation I feel when I get to read questions pertaining to astronomy (see: Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka), waves (see: frequency, Hertz), etc. Example: Reading that question about Orion's belt gave me a raging femrection. Synonyms: Lady-boner, lady hard-onAntonym: Femdick deflator 69 /siks-tee-nahyn/ (n)(1) Giggity!(2) The score shared by both It Used to Be Fake

Quizzy McQuiz Face and the Forced Boat Puns
Erin

Ahoy, quizzers! Ask anyone* and they'll tell you: you all missed one hell of a party last weekend at Geek Bowl XI! 212 teams from all across this great land descended upon some random, doesn't-look-like-a-place-you'd-get-murdered-at-all pier in Seattle for quizzy shenanigans. A crowd of 4.72% of that many teams gathered under my shady pier at Stick+Stone to be regaled with stories on the grand ol' time they missed out on (LIVE MUSIC! FAUX MOVIE FIGHTS! A TOTAL DISS BY BOSTON'S MAYOR!). Oh, and to play quiz, I guess. How'd they do? AVAST, TO THE RECAP! Returning anti-champ, previously of Flying Hans Solo fame, joined forces with a compadre to form Team of

On the Importance of CIRCLING. YOUR. JOKER. CHRIS.
Erin

Thirteen tenacious teams joined me last night for our weekly brain-off at Stick+Stone. We had not one, but TWO dudes playing as individuals, including Hans Solomite, who joined us sans his Leia for a third week in a row. He also reclaimed the bottom spot, after his brief taste of not-last last week. Team Make It Wanket can't tell me or it what to do; only consensual wanking here, buddy! The Flaming Schnitzels were the first team to finish with over 50 points, while Unicorns With Asshats couldn't tell me if said creatures were wearing hats that looked like asses or hats on their asses. It really

TIL: 4 People + 7 Team Names < 1 Dude Who Loves Star Wars
Erin

Things I Learned At Monday Night Quiz:- Thirteen teams pretty much take up every available square inch of floor space at Stick+Stone. - A night you are not expecting 13 teams will just happen to be the night that you forget to put on deodorant. My apologies to the two closest teams to my funk, Shitty Penguins and Keen and Eager. - One team of four can have seven names, which is not at all annoying when trying to grade thirteen scoresheets (take your meds next time, team Drew's Big Cat and the Boenkhes/How Much Does My Cat Weight? (sic)/Drew Balls and Da Cat/Big D and Catytime/The

Get Fred Durst to Taste Your Chocolate Starfish
Erin

After putting up with my germy ass at last night's quiz at Stick+Stone, you all deserve an award. What better way, then, for me to treat myself than to curl up with a blanket and a bottle of NyGin (that's NyQuil mixed with gin) and tune in to this year’s Quizzies?! Let's see who takes home the prize! Best/Worst Mix-Up of Coretta Scott King's Name: team Came for the Food, Stayed for the Trivia with their answer, Rosa Parks.

A Monday Love (?) Story
Erin

It was a typical Monday; work sucked, the commute was atrocious, but thank goodness for the weekly quiz at Stick+Stone. Bridgeson sat at the table, struggling to remember if that damn mouse in the visual Round 5 was Itchy or Scratchy...when suddenly, he locked eyes across the bar with the finest set of Two Tits and a Twat that he ever did see. He sauntered over to her table and asked if he could join her team; she obliged. Despite him confusing Vegemite for guano in Aussie Round 1, and her mixing up AC/DC and Rod Stewart in audio Round 2, all was going well. They ordered the Chocolate Bismarks for dessert, just

The Human Centi-Quiz
Erin

So many gorgeous Dapper Dans and Daniels joined me at Stick+Stone for a duel celebration: Monday marked both 2 years at S+S, as well as your not-so-humble Quizmistress's 100th QUIZ!! I was #blessed to see so many familiar faces (love you all!), as well as a few that I hope to see again (welcome, teams Clueless Cougs, The Wombats, and Warm Pockets!). The night was replete with extra bonus beers, prizes I hastily gift-wrapped from the dark corners of my house, Rule #1 in magnet form, guest appearances by Mr. Quizmistress and my QMIL (Quiz-Mother-in-Law), and a very special Round 7 voiced

Indian Jones and the Temple of Derp
Erin

The crowds last night at Stick+Stone sure kept me and the staff on their collective toes! Nine rowdy-af teams joined me for a night of brain stem measuring. Lots of familiar faces, and a bit of a running theme with the names this week (originality is tough, teams Alternative Answers, The Book of Alternative Facts, and We're Not Wrong, We've Just Got Alternative Answers). As for the apostrophe in team The Einstein's? I still cannot tell you if that was intentional. How did my deviants do? TO THE RECAP! Round 1 on celebrity sentence names stymied most, but teams Cats and Dog, along

Rectum?! I...Actually Didn't Cause Much Damage to 'Um At All.
Erin

Is that an icicle in your pocket, or are you...wait, that IS an icicle in your pocket? What the hell, dude?! Speaking of frosty nether-regions, nine shivering teams braved the cold to join me at Stick+Stone after a chilly 3-week hiatus! Almost all were regs ('sup, The Tri-Quizzard Champions, Tom, Crow, and Gypsy, Pen Island, and Sara's Always Late), while others I would love to see more of (hope you're up to date on your shots, Colin Feral Cats). With such a long break, did my quizzers' brains turn to slush, or did they remain rock-salt-hard? TO THE RECAP! Round 1 on current events

Who Needs All Those GD Birds, Anyway?!
Erin

Monday night of Quizmas, my quizzers gave to me...FIIIIVE nerdy teeeeeaaamms! Four rounds over 8, three aced Bonuses, two teams tied for first, and a Round 5 filled out perfectly! Seriously, what more could a gal ask for? Five teams of regulars rode their sleighs in to Stick+Stone for the last quiz of 2016 (w00t)! Let's see how my elves fared. TO THE RECAP! Round 1's answer sandwiches went down easy with everyone scoring 6 or more. Audio Round 2 would have gone better if (A) you knew your state capitols, and (B) you also knew that U2 was a totally legit answer. In Round 3, where two of these things just don't belong, saw an early Joker from Walking in a

Justin Trudeau: Canadian Jesus
Erin

After almost 100 quizzes, you all continue to surprise me: 5 die-hard teams braved the cold and snow and slush and the I-don't-wannas in order to join me for quiz at Stick+Stone last night! We're talking teams that have been with me since nearly the beginning (tip o' the hot chocolate mug to you, The Quizzards!), teams that have become regulars earlier this year (I saved you a seat by the fire, The CDC and The Purple Dragons), and teams that I consider regulars, even if I don't get to see you each week (I'll get you a blanket, teams Spicy Wizards and Edward Snowed In). You all rock! But did

Things Not To Google: (1) Blue Waffle (2) Lemon Party (3) Shittyflute
Erin

HEY! HEY! YOU! YEAH, CAN YOU SPEAK UP A LITTLE? I'M STILL HAVING SOME TROUBLE HEARING AFTER LAST NIGHT'S AUDIO ROUND AT STICK+STONE!! WHAT'S THAT? MY CAPS LOCK IS ON? Oh. That's better, thanks! Thankfully, only 6 teams were made to endure that god-awful flute-tastrophe. Let me apologize to you, my regulars (sorry The Quizards, lo ciento The CDC, mea culpa The Griswald Family X-Mas Tree, sumimasen SAM) and also to the teams I have hopefully not scared away forever (you look sexy in your new hearing aids, Keep Trying and The Pessimistic Cougs!).

Quaker Scroatmeal: Now With More Chode!
Erin

Last night at Stick+Stone, seven teams of stuffed turkeys rolled their buttery asses in to start working off all of that creamed corn and those candied yams and get their quiz on! Joining me at the table were plenty of old family members (no politics during dinner, Jabronis, Tom, Crow, and Gypsy, Save the Quizenfranchised Youth, and The Electoral College of Hard Knocks!) and a few new-ish plus-ones (pass the gravy, Blobfish Condom, Scroatmeal, and Double Martini!). Who would win a slice of that delicious first-place pie? TO THE RECAP! Scores from Round 1 on the end of November were all over the

A one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest.
Andrew

That is the visual I would like to have in your head for the quiz at Stick + Stone. When I say it was busy, I mean it was busy. Not something I was really prepared for as a sub, on a holiday week were the regular QM and myself both thought, it’s going to be dead.  Jokes on us! 4 teams came in right as I was reading the first question, a few teams shuffled their numbers to get under the 6. It was crazy, in a good way. Like the voices are telling you to do nice things, not knock over a Circle K. We had a lot of great team names this week. I special shout out to Cervix-A-lot.  Probably my favorite team name of all time. And Cheese

Hey, C/Karl? Your Parents Humped on Valentine's Day. #DEALWITHIT

Do you remember where you were on Carl's birthday? I do. It was a night like any other, except I was hosting quiz at Stick+Stone. Were you there on that infamous day? You may have been if you were a regular (like Quizappointed...I feel your pain...or Sattelite [sic] of Love, or even Ebony and Ivory: the Barack and Joe Story), one of my semis (good to see you again, Mike Pence's Baby Mama [now #1 in my heart], 80s Babies, and Ragu Against the Machine), or a team that, after last night, better become regulars (come back again, Blood
