Hey nonny nonny.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Ha, I know I'm like a liiiiiiiiittle late in getting this posted, but events took a turn Friday that required some editorial attention. You may have heard about that. Aaaaaaanyway! Fun was had by all at McCabe's on Thursday, if by "all" you mean "whuhhhh, I can't hear you. Those buttholes at the bar are screaming too loudly." Because mais oui, mes amis, there were buttholes. Like an industrial-sized bucket of them, who were not only oblivious to the fact that pub quiz was going on but aggressively opposed to the idea of noticing any other people were alive in the whole world. This meant that your beloved Fuckmaster was doing a lot of shoutin and hollerin and yellin and that now my

Glory glory Chattanooga
Fuckmaster Emeritus

We had ourselves a super funky time at McCabe's last night. I was like, "Wait a minute. I know I like it funky, but how more funky can this get?" And Dear Diary, you will be amazed to learn that the answer was super duper funky with an extra side of funk. ON TOP OF FUNK FRITES, YOU GUYS. So yes. So funky. A good-sized quiz last night with totally excellent weather and the kind of night that drives folks to be like, "Man, it's summer. I want to drink beer." And there's where we got 'em: right in the drinker. Early on, Pat Sajak bifurcated into themselves and so-called Number Seven, and it was those two that nabbed our top spots, except for Rhapsody

Blame it on the rain?
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Man, was it ever raining yesterday. Like, really coming down. I guess it all started about 5 p.m., when there were like a few big fat drops that hit the ground like splat! and then it steadily picked up over the course of the next 10 minutes or so until it was really coming down. I was driving at the time and my windshield wipers were on full blast and it was kind of hard to see even then. And then the hail started—not super-big hail but not tiny and granular, either. I suppose if I had to pin down what size they were I would say about the size of broccoli florets, but not the super-big ones, like the little ones. Bigger than peppercorns, anyway, and smaller than corn kernels. Well,

Everything new is new again
Fuckmaster Emeritus

So! It was a big night of new things: Remodel at McCabe's! A new night for the quiz we'd done on Wednesdays for over nine years! New menu! I totally chopped off all my hair! A bunch of new faces! Tacos! Eels driving cars like people! Lightning that morphs into Slurpees to trick you and then you drink the Slurpee and get electrocuted! Furniture that talks, and mostly what it talks about is how rude it thinks it is that people are sitting on it all the time! That might have been a dream I had! The electoral college! Books! Hey, Unitarian Jihad won again. I was hoping that moving the quiz to a different night might shake them, but nooooo. There was a team of nurses who

Who runs Bartertown?
Fuckmaster Emeritus

So much fun, you guys! We had like one bazillion newbies in the house last night, all of whom were adorable and good-natured and sweet, so I put them in my pocket and brought them all home and set up a terrarium for them with wood chips and a little wheel for them to run on and squeak their adorable questions at me: "Do we turn in our answers now?" "Where do we sign up for the trivia night game?" "What is a visual round?" AWWWWWW.   So! It was the last Wednesday quiz after nine freaking years of Wednesday quizzes at McCabe's, and after a week off we'll come back on Thursdays badder than ever. For what is may never die and only rises harder and stronger than before. Valar

Fuckmaster Emeritus

I have no idea what you guys do when you're not quizzing, and truth be told, I'm not sure I really wanna know. My contact with you is a weekly span of give or take two hours when you're drinking, so I'm not sure I'm getting the best glimpse into your lives. That said, I'm in love with you, you fuzzy nerds. Run away with me. We could be so happy together, you and me and our ripped "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" DVDs. We'll screw up our faces in the sun and correct each others' grammar and helpfully point out Captain Marvel ephemera in io9 comment threads. It'll be exactly like "Wouldn't It Be Nice" except in my mother's basement. So! Moving on! Last night! There! Was! A! Quiz! It was totally

Good day to thee, ye wee tots! It's spring, you guys! That means it will never, ever, ever stop raining, until it does and in July we're all like, omgz we're in such a drought and it's so hot, waaa waaa waaa. So there's that! Our quiz at McCabe's was a big super blockbuster that ruled everybody's faces off until the end of time. I won't even mention that stupid Unitarian Jihad won because they're bad people and that Brainiac X and Mike's New Girlfriend Is So Young, She Hasn't Yet Implanted In Her Mom's Uterine Lining came in after them. Who wants to even know that stuff? What you guys really want to know is the very very very

Let Me Pay You Monthly for Something I Don't Need
DJ ROB ROB

Thanks to all you faithful quizzers at McCabe’s Tavern who graciously embraced me into your warm bosom that is quiz on Wednesday nights. I’m really happy when I get a chance to sub for Aaron because it’s a great venue and an even better crowd with some seriously brainy quizzers. Round 3 was a Real or Shit round about Subscription Delivery Services, which is a new fad. It’s similar to how programs like Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite are making you pay a monthly amount for their programs instead of a one-time cost, which I frankly think is a shitty way to keep people paying well beyond what they should. So in comes

You guys, Jane Austen air freshener smells exactly like you think it would.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Which is to say, fussy and overrated, and you sort of expect it to be mostly illiterate and you wonder why your college girlfriend made such a big deal out of it since it's pretty much just light romance disguised as capital-L LITERATURE but let's be honest, the only thing separating "Mansfield Park" from an unapologetic bodice-ripper is the picture of Fabio. By the way, were you so inclined, there's a pretty hilarious romance novel title generator out there. My next 'uns will be "Lace Savannah" and "The Legato Knight." The former will start like this: Savannah's hair was like corn silk on her shoulders, only yellower, like a true yellow and

Fuckmaster Emeritus

You guuuuuuys! Quiz quiz quiz. Fun fun fun. Blog blog blog. These are all words that I know, and that I have now shared unto you. You're so way totally welcome. So! First off, thanks to Rob of Pat Sajak for his P.C. fixing skills. This isn't QM Rob, who was also there, but a different Rob who is not QM Rob but they have the same name. Other Rob Who Isn't QM Rob But Has the Same Name As QM Rob fiddled and diddled and made it possible for us to have quiz last night, so let's all pretend he's now in the same room with us and clap loudly, startling the cat who was sleeping nearby. Done? Good. We can continue. Speaking of QM Rob,

So, you guys, I always, always, always write about the winning teams.

I can smell it.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Ha-ha, it was all April Fools-y last night, you guys! Because of the amount of Kevin Bacon-ness and stuff, and also because I said, "Hi, I'm Aaron, and I'm NOT your quizmaster," and people were all, "Whuh-huh? But he's holding the microphone and has the computer and stuff!" and I was like, "GOTCHA!!!!! I AM! CUZ APRIL FOOL'S!!!!" This is because I'm just the best. So other than the hilarity of the actual quiz, she was a pretty good 'un. Sadly, LGBT Liberals for Ted Cruz, who were in first all the livelong night, were in fact not in first all the livelong night because of a slew of Jokered round 8s that shoved them back into fourth place

Boogie nights?
Fuckmaster Emeritus

YOU GUYS! I totally forgot to post everything, because I'm a terrible person who should probably be started on fire, or at least doused in gasoline (it would kill the bedbugs). Sorry about that, but here's your spiel: Sajak killed it, because waaa waaa they all went to liberal arts school and not the College of Straight-Up Stompin a Motherfucka like I did. My alumni magazine comes with a subpoena. Our graduation speaker was Suge Knight, who Skyped in from prison. My major was You Trippin. I played Intramural Slaps. I could go on. In second?

The day after tomorrow.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Weeeeeeeeell, last night was just about as expected at McCabe's, an Irish bar the day after St. Patrick's day, which is to say the staff looked exhausted and the quizzers were a little fewer and further between than they'd be on a day that wasn't a fake Irish excuse for drinking fetid bong-water that passes for alcohol (shout out to you, Jameson!). But! We did have us a time regardless. We Wear Pink on Wednesdays is really bad at quiz, you guys, but they're great sports while they do it. Compare this to Pat Sajak, who are occasionally great but real pains in the tuchis. They won last night. Handily. And then there's Unitarian Jihad/BOOOOOO!!!!,

Dream a little dream?
Fuckmaster Emeritus

By way of introduction, let me tell you about this dream I had last night. So I was at Sundance, although it might not really have been Sundance; it was some sort of film festival with lots of celebrities and stuff. And I was there with this really irritating girl I used to know, who, in this dream, I was sleeping with or something. We were staying at like some sort of cabin in the mountains, which bears out my Sundance location, and for some reason her brother was staying with us and he worked for a geological survey or something because he had to get up early in the morning and check out readings from some sort of machine that observed tectonic activity, except he didn't want to get up because

Man oh man oh man was she an exciting one last night at McCabe's. We're now in Week 37 of Blizzardpocalypse '14/'15, with our entire city coated with up to 18 feet of snow and the roads are impassible and people are eating their dead family members in their frozen houses and ye gods, the horror, but that didn't stop everybody from getting their asses down to the bar to play 'em some pub quiz and stuff. We had us a new contender last night in Guess Which One of Us is Naked on the Internet, who pretty much ruled the night until they shit the bed on a sudden death round, giving it on up to Pat Sajak in the eleventh hour.
