One thing about the King Trivia Pub Quiz that I'll bet a lot of people don't consider... You learn stuff! Well, that is if you bother to. For example, I learned that the Thimble Berry (aka - salmon berry) is high in vitamin C, fragrant and its leaves can be used for toilet paper in the wild... If you have to. I learned that I couldn't tell the difference between the Addams' Family House and the Munsters' House (unless the Munster Mobile was parked in front). And, I learned that even if you know Italian, it doesn't necessarily mean you'll be able to match the American movie title to it's Italian counterpart. Just because you see The Producers in New York doesn't mean you'll be seeing I Produttori on the marquee in Rome. So you see... King Trivia has unknown and possibly untapped didactic properties that could be hitherto exploited for mankind's good. Just sayin'...

Best new team name award goes to Arnold Van Damme Stallone, who popped in to test their mettle against the regulars. Welcome back to Royal Flush, whom we haven't seen in a while. Likewise, Team Testa and Pickles on a Plate.

Winner's Circle: The Ninja Turtles once again on top after performing some deft ninjitsu-like acrobatics by moving from third to first place in the seventh round! Stealth Texas took second and Ship It! grabbed third after running first and second for most of the evening.

Geography Woes: All but a couple of teams Double-or-Nothing'd in the last round, which centered on which U.S. states had the longest borders with Canada. There was a lot of pain at the end of the evening. But that's how the Ninja Turtles won!

Oh well, as Wayne Gretsky once said: "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take!" Have a great week!
