QUIZ RECAP

At 7:02 pm, three tables and two guys at the bar were all that occupied Kilarney's in Fairview Center last night. Then, at 7:30pm, the joint miraculously swelled to ten tables and a full bar! Such is the effect of a King Trivia Pub Quiz at your local watering hole, even on a Tuesday with rain!

Lots of regulars filled the hall along with newbie team EZ ZZ's. The couple explained E and Z were their pair of beloved Basset hounds. I just love a good animal story. Another terrific question set from our quiz writers out west as well. Quiz Master Lou thought that the domestic pig question was too easy, but I think maybe Beijing Black and Tamworth might have thrown some doubt into some people's minds. (Actually, those names sound like some exotic pot one might obtain?)

Round Three's theme of frogs and toads was a real stumper for a lot of folks. QM Lou was surprised at how many teams knew about the company LeapFrog, but virtually no one got the Star Fox mechanic name of Slippy Toad. However, style points go to some hilarious guesses... Kermit Jones, Toad Eddie, Space Toad, Toadworth and Joe Toad. Team AFCF (Allen Fairview Chamber Friends) got style points practically every round after incorrectly identifying Anchorman's famous mutt as Walter Cronkite. Nearly everyone of their default guesses that night was Walter Cronkite. As a frog. As one of Hollywood's highest paid actresses. As their Guess Who Round choice (crossed out of course). Just to see if they could get a chuckle out of ole Quiz Master Lou. Uh, you guys do know that style points don't count, right?

As Kilarney's is an Irish pub in Texas, it is only fitting that QM Lou offer this classic jape...

A Texan walks into a pub in Ireland and says, "I hear you Irish are a bunch of hard drinkers. I'll give $500 American dollars to anybody in here who can drink 10 pints of Guinness back-to-back."

The room is quiet and no one takes up the Texan's offer. One man even leaves. Thirty minutes later the same gentleman who left shows back up and taps the Texan on the shoulder. "Is your bet still good?" asks the Irishman.

The Texan says yes and asks the bartender to line up 10 pints of Guinness. Immediately the Irishman tears into all 10 of the pint glasses drinking them all back-to-back. The other pub patrons cheer as the Texan sits in amazement.

The Texan gives the Irishman the $500 and says, "If ya don't mind me askin', where did you go for that half hour?"

The Irishman replies, "Oh...I went to the pub down the street to see if I could do it first".

Have a great week everybody!
