You've all been given enough "hints" by now. Today I'll offer you some practical advice from Ferris Bueller.
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
So please, when you're coming to the quiz tonight, slow down and take your time. Don't just come rushing through the front doors of the café like a maniac.
See you tonight!
It took until the end of the month, but January has really followed through on all its promise. We finally got some snow, the New York Football Giants are going to the Super Bowl, and we at the IRCPQ have just crowned our monthly winners!
I think we set a record for attendance, which is good for many reasons. Most importantly, lots of people will be able to say they were there the night the IRCPQ delivered its final polygamy round.* In the first half of the night we wished happy birthdays to Neil Diamond (the champion fencer) and Ernest Borgnine (the copilot of Airwolf). We also learned that the best way to counteract the Knights Who Say Ni is to simply say "it".**
The second half of the quiz began with naming the movie by its climax location, such as Devil's Tower, the Hill Valley Clock Tower, or Mt. Rushmore. OJ did a round on geometric geography, that included a question about Hunts Point's rampant prostitution.*** We finally wrapped up the night with the Common Bond Round™ which was all about Disney. Did you know that Walt Disney's final dying act was to write the name "Kurt Russell" on a piece of paper?
We ended the night with a tie in regulation between Semiannual University of Inwood Tailored Underpants Party and Treats and Snoozin. The three closest-answer tie-breaker questions all went to Treats and Snoozin, so they earned the weekly gift certificate. We also offer our congratulations to Treats and Snoozin for having the top score for January and winning the IRCPQ Monthly Prize Pack™ - this includes 2 tickets from AllShows, a cocktail created and named in their honor, and possession of the newly minted Quizmaster's Cappuccino Cup.
We'll have pictures of the QM Cup soon, and we are accepting bids for its naming rights. All offers will be accepted at next week's quiz where we'll once again try to separate the boffins from the hoddypeaks.
* - So long polygamy rounds, we'll all miss you.
** - We still don't know how to counteract quizmasters that ask questions about the Knights Who Say Ni.
*** - This makes me wonder what people think of me when I wear my Hunts Point Hustle t-shirt.

Maybe Jatiyo Sangshad Bhaban should be in Philadelphia.
As the Evil Mr. Phil promised, the 18th of January was a doozy. Seldom does the 18th have a round where every other question is the same answer. In fact, the 18th is usually a good day not to discuss football and to learn a little about our 11th president. That's the type of discussion that will make you go home full of blond ambition.
Last night was a lot like other nights. There were two bespectacled, namesake quizmasters, two pints on us, six rounds of trivia and lots of beer chugged.
So, if you weren't lucky enough to be there, what were the six rounds?
- Lessons learned from movies
- The 2011 NFL Season
- Identify the celebrity appearance on The Simpsons
- James K. Polk
- Songs about titular women
- The Common Bond all about Madonna.
Thanks for a great evening and we hope to see you next week when we crown a champ for the month.

Since you won't be wasting time on Wikipedia today, please join Dr. Jordan today.
As for today's no-Wikipedia-necessary hint:
Did anyone else collect when the underdog beat the spread at the Holiday Bowl on December 29, 2000?
We had a full house of giant-brained quizzers last week, so we your quizmasters were forced to pour a lot of tie-breaker beers.
To all those who show up this week expecting to score a ridiculously high number of points, I'd like to remind you that this Wednesday is the 18th of January, and in many cultures the 18th of January is regarded as the most difficult pub quiz night of the year. Consider yourselves warned, and when you show up this Wednesday be prepared for anything.
