Take Me Out to the Soccer Game
JWarr

My favorite part of the quiz was when we all sang Take Me Out to the Ballgame. My least favorite part was having to listen to Donald Trump sing it. My second favorite part was- in what was a clear sign of civil disobedience- y’all identified who sang in that clip and none of you acknowledged it, even though you knew it would cost you a point.    This was a quiz where waiting to the end seemed to make total sense for the joker, but then everyone fell the fuck apart.  Learn your bible people! Hooba-Nickel-Stank-Back won the whole kitten caboodle, with Hung Like Chris Cornell bringing up the prize wagon rear. Kyle

Let's Cement Trump's Legacy
Turducken Cupcake

I'm sure the last thing you want to read is something political but during tonight's quiz I had a revelation. We asked a question about Supreme Court Justices, and we learned (okay, we already knew) that constitutionally, there is not a set number of Justices that must sit on the Supreme Court. Regardless of where you're at on the political spectrum, you've gotta admit it doesn't look good for Trump right now.  Literally the only political win he's had so far is Gorsuch, because Gorsuch is at least a competent jurist that is well-qualified to sit on the bench. We all know how Gorsuch got there.  The Democrats would have surely filibustered him, but

Happy Mexican Independence Day!
dammit kevin

This is a pretty busy couple of days – GWD’s Let the Wookie Win Star Wars quiz was tonight as well as early showings of Guardians of the Galaxy 2. That all happened on May the fourth which also happens to be Star Wars Day. Then, tomorrow is May the Fifth – otherwise known as Cinco de Mayo (or Revenge of the Fifth if you happened to party too much for Star Wars Day). So, thank you guys for making it out tonight even though there were plenty of other things going on. Now, I’m going to share with you one of my pet peeves. The title of this blog totally triggers me when I see it on Facebook. Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day. They were already independent.

Couple of Fun Facts About Japan
JWarr

Three fun facts about Japan so all of you know for next time- 1. Gi is a fun scrabble word, but it's a waste of time. Mainly because with an N you open up some fun bingo opportunities to pull off them 50 extra bonus points for using all your letters.  2. We are unlikely to go to war with them. Again.  Assuming Trump doesn't confuse Japan with North Korea 3. It's one of the countries at Epcot that is totally worth skipping. Round 8 wrecked you with a top score of 11.  Reality TV, however, apparently you all know. Also, Survivor is still on the air.  34 seasons.  Big Brother, too.  We talked about that a smidge. It was

Technofreak
dammit kevin

From Urban Dictionary:Technofreak – “Somewhat like technogeek, a person who is obsessed with the latest technology, and everything techno-y, (music, clothing, etc), while still being able to straddle the line between nerd/geek and normal person, with a reasonable social life. They are also extremely adept at new technologies and are usually able to complete really complex technological things without becoming too unbalanced. Usually has a nostalgia for the 90's rave scene, even if they weren't involved in it.”   Do you guys know anyone who always has to have the latest iPhone? They’ll stand in line for hours (or days) to get the newest one

Did Somebody Say Star Wars?
dammit kevin

More than a couple of you whooped when I asked a Star Wars question tonight (even though it turned out to be hard and only one team got it right). If you’re a Star Wars fan then you should consider going to our Star Wars theme quiz – Let The Wookie Win.  It’s on Thursday, May 4th (Star Wars Day, duh) at 8pm at Bryan Street Tavern in Dallas. If you haven’t been to a theme quiz then this is a great one to start with. The Quizmasters and a lot of quizzers get dressed up, there are cash prizes, extra side games between rounds, and lots of fun. Visit the main GeeksWhoDrink.com webpage for more details and to register. Tonight’s quiz was dominated

You Down With OPP?
dammit kevin

Have you guys ever played Pac-Man and wished there was a version where you could play a ghost and try to kill other people’s Pac-Mans (oh, that’s what OPP means)? If so, you’re mostly in luck! There’s a game called Pac-Man Battle Royale where up to four people can play head-to-head (or would that be head-to-head-to-head-to-head?). It’s pretty awesome. There are still ghosts but after you eat the pill (not a guaranteed form of contraception, btw) you can eat / kill / destroy / annihilate (ok, maybe I’m a little aggressively competitive) the other Pac-Mans. The best part is that it’s currently at Free Play Arcade in Richardson (my favorite!) and Cidercade

This Counts As A Blog. Really.
dammit kevin

You know those days when you really don’t have time to blog but you’ve got to blog? Like you job depends on it or something? Well, today’s one of those days. So, today’s blog may be less bloggy than the blog that you guys are used to, but blog I will and blog it is. You get to have your blog and eat it, too. But seriously (at least as serious as I usually am), what’s the deal with those Chinese film titles? Why would it ever be a good idea to retitle Sixth Sense as “He’s a Ghost”? And “I Married a Prostitute To Save Money” isn’t exactly how I remember Pretty Woman but the concept seems legit. I guess it really just depends

Superhero Sex
dammit kevin

It all started with my teenage boys and I talking about female fertility. That evolved (of course) into us discussing whether or not Wolverine’s mutant powers extended to his sperm. If they do, does that mean that spermicides and a woman’s natural defenses would be unable to prevent conception? Would the sperm be able to make their way all the way into the ovaries and then rampage like a fox in a henhouse? Our discussion continued as we began to apply the same logic to other superheroes. We finally decided that the world needs a “Superheroes Having Sex” comic strip. Unfortunately, drawing a basic penis is the limit of my drawing abilities (and even then, I can

What Rhymes With Orange
dammit kevin

If you guys are like me, you come to quiz to see how dumb you are (ok maybe you go to see how smart you are) and to be amused. Lately, I’ve been amusing myself (sounds kinda dirty as I’m proof reading) by reading really bad jokes to my son and girlfriend. They actually aren’t ALL really bad but the best ones are. If you know what I mean. So, for YOUR amusement, here are some of my favorites that I’ve recently found (disclaimer: most of these are from a Reddit thread):    My friend says to me: "what rhymes with orange" I said: "no it doesn't" Communism jokes aren't funny unless everyone gets them I've found a job helping a one

The Beatles, FTW
dammit kevin

First of all – I just got back from Vegas which may be my favorite place on Earth. I’m not much of a gambler. So, my favorite thing to do in Vegas is watch shows. This time I saw Beatles Love and Mystère. I’ve seen Beatles Love three times now. It’s been different every time but this was the first time that I’ve seen it with my girlfriend. If you have a chance to see it then ALWAYS go see it.But, if there’s any way to see it with someone you’re really in love with, then do whatever is needed to make that happen (as my old team of coworkers in India used to say – “do the needful”). It was an amazing experience. Now,

Sweet Sookie
dammit kevin

Team name trolling – that’s what I call it when teams pick names to mess with the Quizmaster. I love it and I do it pretty regularly when I play. Tonight we had a pretty clever one that would have managed to troll both me and the team that’s been winning regularly. That is - if the regular winners had actually been here. As it was, Quizlamic Sta - just kidding it's that shitty Kidz Bop band The DDD's, still managed to poke fun at me with their team name. They even included my previous attempts to mock them by saying their name sounded like a shitty kids bop band (it does if you say it the right/wrong way – The DeeDeeDee’s). Anyway, nicely done.

The Sound of Silence

I can pretty much use my blog to say anything I want. I’ve used it to complain about traffic on 75 (why do people drive slow in the left lane??? – there’s even a state law that slower traffic must keep right but fat lot of good that does). I’ve used it to express my political opinion. **Wait!

The Frigid Virgin
dammit kevin

I was a little surprised how many teams thought it was true that countries could dump small amounts of nuclear (or nuk-u-lur if you’re George W – but if you’re reading my blog then you probably aren’t) waste in Antarctica. I mean, come on, the world is pretty messed up but that’s our last pure continent. It’s been saving itself for years and it’s practically a virgin still (oral doesn’t count, right?). As such, there are international agreements to take care of it and treat it like a glass snowflake (not sure where I got that metaphor or even what is meta is actually for). So, there’s a big No Dumping sign in Antarctica right next to the

Kidz Bop
dammit kevin

Well, one of our teams tonight (The D.D.D.’s – That Shitty Kidz Bop Band!!!) basically dedicated their performance to the art movement simply known as Kidz Bop. Amazingly, are there is a staggering 30+ Kidz Bop CDs with songs ranging from ones that seem destined to be Kidz Bop songs (like ABC) to ones that don’t sound like kids should sing them (Stressed Out). The whole thing is morbidly fascinating to me so I think I’ll add a few of these to my playlist. By special request, we already heard the Kidz Bop version of Thrift Shop tonight. It wasn’t quite the same as the original but I was able to almost sing along while laughing every time they altered

I Have What On My Nose?
dammit kevin

I know this is going to come as a surprise but I don’t have much to complain about this week. I’d tell you about my weekend but that was days ago and I’ve probably forgotten most of it (I think there were some transvestites, a big hairy guy in a dress, and I do remember shooting a gun – oh yeah, I saw Rocky Horror and went shooting on a friend’s land in BFE). Normally, I’d complain about politics and all of the ridiculous stuff going on with immigration but I think we all agree how stupid it is and I’m burnt out of it from Facebook. I’d complain about the weather but it has been great lately (thanks Global Warming, too bad you aren’t real).
