Pub Quiz
12/01/2011

If you couldn't make it to the quiz last night or you're having trouble remembering what happened, have no fear. This is a recap of last night's events.

We had yet another full house at the Indian Road Café and extended our consecutive pub quiz record to 159 weeks. Pub Quiz regular Alicia almost managed a perfect night of consecutive chug-off wins as she celebrated another consecutive year of life - we wish her silence and low-lighting on this the day after her Birthday.

As always, there was a mixed bag of questions and mispronunciations, and here are some of the highlights. The night of light entertainment opened with a round of "weighty" questions, and I finally learned just what the heck a Bantam is. As usual, Dr. Jordan was obdurate in his grading, but oblivious to all your objections for his What About Ob? round. I mailed it in for round 3 with a Mini Common Bond round about holiday eating habits - what do thrift stores, minutes, and quizmasters at Thanksgiving Dinner all have?

The second half of the night gets a little fuzzier, but I believe there was a round on literature. Ah, yes, now I remember. You were all asked who wrote, "Ode on the Death of a Favorite Cat, Drowned in a Tub of Goldfishes"? Which begs the follow-up question, who read "Ode on the Death of a Favorite Cat, Drowned in a Tub of Goldfishes"? In the Jeopardy! round (where all the questions and answers were in the form of a question) we had a lengthy discussion about Paul Marcarelli's many on-screen roles. And finally, Dr. Jordan baffled many with his cryptic common bond about Mustachioed Men.

Mustache-Brow

This really shouldn't have been that cryptic since every other word out of Dr. Jordan's mouth was "mustache" as he showed off the fruits of his Mo-vember labors and asked for donations. In fact, if you didn't get a chance to donate last night you can make a donation via the Mo-Space page.

Congratulations to the winners of the night: A Team With True Gout. If I may don the doctor's hat for a moment, I think they should use their prize money to buy some True Vitamin C which might help with their condition.

Oh, and did I mention that this was the last quiz of the month and that we crowned our November trivia champions? Yes, it's true. Perennial favorites Seaman Cumming To Baste Your Turkey showed great finishing skills in maintaining their lead and holding on for their first monthly win in a long, long time. To them goes the All Shows theater-concert-sporting-event tickets and also the high esteem of their competition.

They are also the inaugural winners of the Indian Road Café Cocktail Naming Rights and next week will have a punch named for and inspired by their team. Rachel, thanks for doing this and we hope this team name offers enough of a challenge to your mixological skill-set.

Anyway, thanks again to everyone who kept reading for this long and to everyone who showed up this month. See you next week!

Senor Pizza, you made a mistake. I did not order extra anchovies.

Ever wonder where your quizmasters get their amazing beards? Sometimes they seek them out in the far reaches of the world, sometime they bargain for them in open-air markets, but some quizmasters they just grow their own.

How to Grow a Beard

There are already plans forming for "How to Grow a Full Beard".
