Something About My Mother?
The Jewish Viking

Yeah. I replaced the word "men" with "mom" in a certain team name last night. With my family visiting next week, can you tell what's on my mind? Besides that Freudian slip, it was only quiz. We started with a pretty easy rhyming round one. It eased everyone into quiz and then we unleashed round tow, which featured double the artists to identify. That one proved a little harder for some of you, including iTunes, which I then blamed on QM Rebecca, who had been using my computer to charge her iphone. Round 3 was all about eww of false. Farting in jar didn't cure the bubonic plague, but man that's a fun gift for the whole family. And, as I pointed out last night, if Shia LaBeouf

USA: First in Jackasses
"Other" Eric

     OK, I haven't really taken the time to write about the Olympics yet, so here we go! While I feel I am a patriot, sometimes it bugs me that all I care about is the medal count. Do you feel this too? We qualified for a majority of the events (where you at men's soccer????) and most everyone who qualified has been doing their events all of their lives with high paid coaches. Shit, the NBA guys probably make more in a week than some nations' GNPs... but what I'm getting down to and what I truly love are the stories of the people who really don't have anything else. The guy from Kenya who watched YouTube to learn how to throw the javelin better.  The Mongolian

In Which Rebecca Likes Ike and Hates Pronouncing Scheherazade
The Jewish Viking

Ah, Wednesday nights. Beer, Food, Quiz, and a heckuva lot of shenanigans. We started with our Eisenhower round. Everyone thought the first question was sooo easy. So easy until you realized that there was a fair number of teaks that didn't know Ike was his nickname. Also, the continental divide is way more exciting as you drive through the Eisenhower tunnel. I passed the continental divide in NM while on my way to Arizona this past weekend. It looks a lot like the desert around Grants. Our music round featured eight songs but only four titles. It was rough, as some of you put the wrong titles down twice. Also, Jill Sobule will forever be the the girl I associate with kissing

The Most Important....
"Other" Eric

      I was going to write an important blog tonight about how asparagus has an impact on our lives. A detailed piece describing the actual studies and how many people DO NOT have it effect the smell of their urine or how some people cannot smell if their urine has been impacted. The blog was going to be educational and attention grabbing. But as I read over the quiz again, and since I am still 12 years old, I decided to write about your favorite body part instead: The Red Anal Organ.     Just like asparagus, some people cannot smell their red anal organ and others cannot smell other peoples' red anal organ. The red anal organ is probably

Quizzing on a School Night
QM Rebecca

So if you've read my profile, you will know that I am a teacher, and you may even know that Thursday is my first day back with students.  Now, most teachers are going to be at home getting sleep or writing those last minute lesson plans… but not me!  I was quizzing it up with the best of them at Oniells Nob Hill with Eric as my scorekeeper (aka: partner in crime).   We started the night with our recently in stuff round, which lets face it, is pretty much a round on how we are killing it in the Rio Olympics (especially swimming!).  We also learned that Michael Phelps uses an alternative medicine technique called "cupping", which leads to the question

What are The Odds?????
"Other" Eric

     With all the topics out there: Olympics, Zika, Suicide Squad, Presidential Choices.... I think tonight, we should head down a more fun topic...     How about our new score keeper and all of his tattoos? How about the team remembering from last week that I barfed up SoCo, so they bought us shots?  How about "Red Dawn"?      I got it!  How about the amazing tie-breaker we had to have tonight? We did a best 3 out of 5 of Ro Sham Bo to break 2nd from 3rd and quite honestly, one of the most fun outcomes for a tie-break! On the first pass, all six competitors threw scissors. I am not a very good stats guy, but if someone

The Jewish Viking

There is nothing like a great quiz to make your Wednesday that much better. I hope that's how you felt, because Rebecca and I were on point with providing you the best quiz in the world, with the perfect amount of snark to make sure you don't like us that much. We started the night with our answer sandwich round. Yes, it involved pay close attention the word I spoke, but even if you didn't ever figure out how it worked, the questions weren't too bad. I mean, in the 80's there's a really high chance any award handed out by MTV went to Madonna. Our music round songs, good and bad, definitely being made worse as punk and nu-metal covers. Seriously - Mambo No 5 is hard

Workin' 9 to 5
"Other" Eric

     Crazy stuff... The flash backs we have when we smell something, take a bite of something or hear a song. Tonight, while you were quizzing and working diligently on your Quizdoku audio round, I was having a nice flashback. Dolly Parton. "9 to 5" to be more exact. I was 4 years old when the movie and song swept the nation.  Quite radical for it's time to be honest. 3 women kidnap their boss because of how shitty they have it... Nuts that things haven't changed that much..     I digress! THE SONG! OK, I have been an attention whore from the start. When I was born, the doctor put me on my mom and I peed on her.

TanookiSuitandTie

Wow, where do I even begin talking about spending a night in homage to one of the greatest animated TV shows out there? Well, I suppose I already have, now haven't I? Look, I know Bob's Burgers has the insurmountable task to be an animated Fox show that isn't anything like The Simpsons or like Family Guy, but quite honestly, it's achieved it. It went through some evolution at its start where it included raunchier humor and flashback sequences that seemingly came out of nowhere, much like Family Guy... almost. I don't even know how to describe the brand of humor that Bob's Burgers has to offer, it's just pure and ridiculous and intelligent and absurd. Combine that with amazing voice talent,

Flat Stanley Vs Sarah Palin: Who Went Rogue-r?
The Jewish Viking

It was another fantastic night of quiz at O'Niell's last night with newest Quizmaster, Rebecca, at my side to provide you with a fantastic quiz. Let's dive in: We started with a little round on the thing that happened the last week of July throughout ALL OF HISTORY (as long as we define history as far back as 1794). If you've ever had Will Smith's Miami stuck in your head, you could blame William "Fresh Prince" Smith, but you could ALSO blame Julia Tuttle for co-founding the city. 8-bit hits was our music round. I'm not sure if 8-Bit Peter Gabriel trumps regular Peter Gabriel, but I honestly was not able to discern nintendo-ized Turn Down For What from the real song.

     Back and to the left. Back and to the left. Back and to the left.  I heard that probably a thousand times my freshmen year in high school. I had Contemporary History with Coach Rubin. He was fascinated with the Zapruder film. I mean, I think this guy took the school's copy of the VHS home and watched it late at night. Back and to the left. Oswalt the patsy. Ruby the cleaner of the mess. The Grassy Knoll.   Yeah, he ingrained into us this moment of history like no other teacher with no other subject matter. Quite a flashback during the quiz for me...

Adam Jarmon Brown

Fernando was in the hizzhouse tonight. So of course I had to call him out, and chastise him for still being present in Albuquerque when he should be in the City of Angels getting his ass famous or something. He has that voice that is going to make him famous. Either for voice work in film and television. Or as a phone sex operator. One or the other. My money is on the former.   Quiz time! Quiz time!

That Exact Moment...
"Other" Eric

     As we bid adieu to our good friend Fernando, I can't help but wonder about stuff. I get pretty nerdy about time travel, timelines and alternate universes, so when there is a clear moment in time that leads to change, I have to wonder and I come up with a shit load of questions. Is that moment, like the day Fernando gets in his car and drives to LA, is that the moment of an actual change in a timeline? Is that the point when John Connor comes back and tells Fernando that he can't leave? Or are the moments of our past based on literal seconds? If you step off the path and step on a moth, does that change everything? If you take a moment and take a deep

I Promised Myself I Wouldn't Cry
The Jewish Viking

Last night was a giant fantastic night of quiz and, for some of us, a somber one. Last night was Quizmaster Fernando's last quiz with us. Quizmaster Fernando has been helping me run quiz for all of you fine folks since 2008. He's provided me with many a fine joke, correct pronunciations, and smooth, fast, scoring. I've also abused the shit out of his voice talent by forcing him to impersonate everything from Sylvester Stallone to The Hulk critiquing classic literature to just simply reading any complicated Latin word for me. And, like a seasoned dancing monkey, he's done all of that with only a minimal about of back talk. Could you ask anything more from a right-hand

     So as many of you know, we should all be grateful for Thomas Edison being such a great person. Light bulbs. Phonographs. Movie Cameras. But there is a much darker side to the man. The thieving side. The murderous side! Yes! As well documented by "Bob's Burgers" Thomas Alva Edison (if that was your real name?!?!?!) murdered Topsy the elephant in an experiment. What you didn't know, Topsy was a mother to three beautiful children. She was a loving wife.  She held a job at the circus, shelling peanuts. I am pretty sure this is why team "Thomas Edison Was a Piece of Shit" called themselves this tonight and why your Quizmaster wholeheartedly agrees!!!!

Points for Everyone!
The Jewish Viking

That's right - not 2, not 3, but FOUR rounds were worth 16 points last night. I know I made you all foam at the mouth by dangling all those points in front of you, but I never promised it was going to be easy. Our music round eschewed our normal song title for naming the decade the historical event the song was about took place in. I was surprised how many of you identified Gordon Lightfoot. That was cool. But I only think one team knew that the Edmund Fitzgerald was a freighter that went down in '75 - most of you thinking it was an older ship from the 20s or 40s. Then we had our third round which begged you to press your luck by giving me two answers. Most of you knew about
