It's Wednesday, and I hope you're ready for another trivial experience tonight. Because that's what we've planned. And to show you we're serious, here's a hint:

Who was the Royal Buffoon of Eternia?

Now get some paper and a pen, get your friends together on Zoom, Meet, GoToMeeting, tin-can-and-string, or whatever, then join us tonight on the Uptown Plague Quiz Facebook Page at 8 PM Eastern.

Hosts: Naomi of the North and The Evil Mr. Phil of the North

Was he president of the Illinois Central Railroad at the turn of the century, or a trout who went to high school in New York?

Happy Wednesday! I hope you've got your brain in quiz shape for tonight. If not, here's a warm-up hint for you:

Harmon Oscar Nelson may not have had a memorable face, but his wife thought his backside was as good as any statuette's.

Now get some paper and a pen, get your friends together on Zoom, Meet, GoToMeeting, tin-can-and-string, or whatever, then join us tonight on the Uptown Plague Quiz Facebook Page at 8 PM Eastern.

Notice: Tonight's quiz features a classic lineup of hosts!

We haven't had a recap in a while. It is possible that so many hosts were BTOB that the memories of whatever they'd done during Quiz, had been drowned in a soup of high quality potables and high fat edibles of various sorts.

Uptown Phil Brown stepped into the breach, and conjured up rounds about birbs and two-word phrases and rows. Mary O'Shag asked about firsts and lasts and cars and Pride.

We remain grateful to Professor Lone Star for stabilizing (to the extent this cast of characters can ever be called stable) the show on Streamyard.

Next Wednesday, more Quiz. Join us at 8, and pour your own.

I finally figured out who to blame for Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar being famous: Apparently, it's VH1's fault.

Join us tonight for the Uptown Plague Quiz! We'll be live streaming starting at 8pm EDT on the UPQ Facebook Page!

Honestly, where else do you have to be?

This might be a tough pill to swallow, but last week's quiz gave excellent Phil ratio.

Happy Quizday! Tonight's Uptown Plague Quiz will feature not one, but TWO Phil's hosting. Uptown Phil Brown will be joining me in bringing you the weekly trivia you crave each week.

I think you're all smart enough to do well without a hint, but just to ease the jitters Uptown Phil Brown has given you this snippet:

[Frito-Lay offices, circa 1994]
R+D Head: Sir, we can make them 20% larger.
CEO: And?
R+D Head: And, uh, 15% thinner.
CEO: AND?!
R+D Head: And round the edges off of each one?
CEO: Excellent, here's $50 million dollars, get to work.

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like juvenile insects in between molts?
