The very model of a modern force majeur.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Man, she was a hoot last night. A regular hootenanny: well, it's chock full of hoot, just a little bit of nanny. A good time. One for the ages. It rained earlier, so it was good and hot and humid and fecund and just dripping with nerdly nerdliness, like a jungle made almost entirely of funk. A funk jungle. So! We had ourselves a whole lot of newbies who stuck with it for the night and yukked it up and stuff, and our leaderboard was kind of all over the place as a result: crazy jokers and upsy-downsiness and just straight-up nerd mayhem. In the end, only one of our McCabe's newbies placed, River are Burning, with the ol' boring

Caissons go rolling.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Well, well, well. Last night at the ol' McCabe's was a fun one. A fun, kinda weird one, since our leaderboard was all sorts of wacky throughout the night. Our regular winners kinda popped up there, then were beat down by new faces and new names, then resurfaced, then were beat out and finally limped across the finish line to win the shit out of things. Sorta. First off, it was summer again after a day of not-summer, so that seemed to bring people out in droves-ish, with their tank tops and their happy faces. But lo! Summer makes people late! So we had gaggles of joiners filling out loner teams, and dual-er teams and treble-er teams too. What could have been wrought if all these people

Merrily we troll along.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

You know, there are nights where everything is up in the air, a room cracklin' with energy and expectation and possibility, and you know that quizzes like those, anybody can win—the table full of drunk-ass hen partiers, the one guy moping alone at the bar, the group of angry goths, the couple on a Tinder date who clearly aren't either of them getting laid tonight, anyone at all. And then there're night like last night at McCabe's, where the winners were pretty much locked in from round one. Experienced quizzers, all of 'em, and experience outs all sometimes. That's just the way the cookie crumbles, you guys. So booooo, Unitarian Jihad won for the zillionth

On Great Beers and Dancing Skunks
RobotNarwhal

McCabe’s, you all were super fun, with a kick ass beer selection and yummy grilled tofu to boot.  #Spoiled.  I’m sure Aaron would rather keep it a secret how cool y’all are, but NOW I KNOW.  So thanks for making my substituting easy.  Now that the formal stuff is out of the way, let’s talk about other things.  Not the GOP debates.  Not Jon Stewart.  Not even that homeless guy who was arrested for giving a kid a wet willy. I’m gonna make this personal.  When I got home after quiz, my dog had been sprayed by a skunk.  This is the second time in 12 months, as she got nailed about the same time

Land of 10,000 cakes?
Fuckmaster Emeritus

So! We had ourselves a pretty rippin' good time at McCabe's last night. Let's get winners out of the way first: Pat Sajak. Sajak Sajak Sajak. They crushed the rest of all y'all. In second, somehow, was Unitarian Jihad, who squeaked in there despite shitting the bed on no fewer than every single round ever. But hey! In third was a new team, who happened in with a mighty big gaggle of happy Minnesotans in town for a wedding. And, as I'm a son of those particulary loony soils, it felt a lot like going home, complete with getting actual lutefisk recipes and being told this joke: So Ole and Lena have saved and saved, and they finally have enough money

Earth! The Final Fun-Tier!
Fuckmaster Emeritus

It was a rock-'em sock'-em kinda night at McCabes, what with all the people and the quizzing and stuff and everything was so exciting that I just literally spit. Team count was medium-ish given our new night, but the great thing about everything is how great it all is. Wooooo! So, we had some comers and goers, as it our evening's wont these days. But the weather was hot, the beer was cold, and I was just wowing the crap out of everyone with trademark Acerbit Wit, or so I'd like to believe and nothing you can tell me will convince me otherwise. Tonight was one of those quizzes where you just gotta get us. Like, get me, man. And no amount of explaining and repeating

The naughtiest of the swears.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

It was yet another 'splosion of 'citement at the ol' McCabe's last night: nice weather, beer flowing like the stately Rhine, a confused old hippie who wandered in, looked around for a bit—possibly searching for his misspent youth—and then wandered right back out, and a right good crowd of drinkers. Teams! Teams teams teams! Among the notable non-winners, there was Da Eds, who like yelling things and getting answers wrong and also having too many people on their team and also yelling. And the Nicoles, who showed up after Round Five and aaaaaaalmost cracked double digits. And We Look Like We Smell Terrible, who were pretty

Fuckmaster Emeritus

Hi! How're you! I hope that you are well because I, too, am well! Just dandy and fine and great. Here's hoping that you are also all of those things! And now enough of pleasantries and to brass tacks: Quiz! Last night! McCabe's! We had a ton of runners in the house owing to the fact that it was raining and the poor runners couldn't run in the rain because they'd get wet and be sad. Pobre runners! Luckily we made up for their sadness with a fun wacky night of wacky fun wherein everybody was wacky and had fun. Our wieners, which is a funny thing I like to say when I mean "winners," because I'm hilarious, were stupid Unitarian Jihad, who crushed the nuts out of

Fuckmaster Emeritus

You guyz! So many funs were had last night at McCabe's, what with the nice weather and the fun and the stuff and the people and the pudding. We had ourselves a nice sampling of new folks, as well, which is refreshing since I AM SO SICK OF LOOKING AT ALL OF YOUR DUMB FACES, you regulars. Our new loves might not have crushed the quiz in the same way you OLD BORING FACES do, since you're THERE EVERY WEEK, GODDAMMIT, but it was just a treat to get some new blood. Speaking of which, the team who sits in the corner where I can't see them and changes their name every week totally placed last night!

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

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

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.
