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

Aaron's been quizmastering since before you were born. He's occasionally hilarious when he's not being sort of a dick. Things that make him giggle include: Li'l Jon; gamboling puppies; the word "oatmeal." No idea why. He's doing preeeeeetty well for himself, thank you.

The, fantastical, splendiferous Monsieur Hephaestus!
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

The Adventures of Silas Chapin Harris, Pioneer Dentist
Fuckmaster Emeritus

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

Fiddlin'!
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,

I will play "Friday" on your graves.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

So, you guys, I always, always, always write about the winning teams. And let's face it: they suck, with their smug dumb faces that always win and their wallets full of crumpled gift certificates and their scoresheets full of correct answers, like, "Oooh, looook aaaaat uuuuus! Weeeee knooooow stuuuuff!" I just want to push them all down the

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
