Twas the mid term elections,
And all through the pub,
Not a soul spoke politics,
For fear of a snub...
No, Quiz Master Lou is not going to parody Clement Clarke Moore. But this particular
passage aptly describes the mood at Kilarney's last night. Low turn out. Only two
regular teams showed up. Three, if you include the Barflies, but they're staff so they
don't really count. We had to rally the stragglers at the bar into a flying platoon to
make up a fourth. Kudos to stalwarts Tequila Mockingbird and IFFY!. They had already
voted and just showed up to coast. The gentleman at the bar who begrudgingly acted as
team scribe for the flying platoon dubbed themselves Paul Revere. I think if ole Paul
made his ride today, he'd be shouting, "The Toxic Politics are coming! The Toxic
Politics are coming!" Quiz Master Lou thinks there is too much social division these
days. Don't worry, I'm getting off my soap box. But before I go, just a question to
consider... If you divided the mental processing time you spent judging others and
judging yourself, which side of the scale would dip lower?

The eve of Halloween is the only time of year when Quiz Master Lou is replaced by Quiz
Master Loucifer! Yes, all kinds of devilish mischief can occur when that happens, as
evidenced by the replacement of the freebie FB question in Round One! BwaHahahahaha!
In fact, a number of spooky and mysterious happenstances took place. The replacement
question was about the Evil Dead franchise star. Interestingly enough, QM Lou (cifer)
was actually in the movie Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness! Cosmic Coinkydink, eh? And
not only that, but the subject of Round Four's Guess Who was Eli Roth, QM Lou's last
name-sake. Go figure.
Weirdness aside, Kilarney's was fairly sparse last night except for some of our regular
teams and two newbies, who braved the balmy gloom to come in, imbibe some Irish spirits
and play some trivia. Resident champs, Tequila Mockingbirds lurched into first place,
only to be scared into second by the frighteningly knowledgeable Poonswagglers, while the
unholy alliance of Blood, Bath & Beyond/Ship It! stabbed third. Honorable mention to
newbie teams Saints & Sinners, who landed in fourth nimbly for only being a duo and the
family band of Halloweenies, who just came by for dinner and ended up having a terribly

DATELINE: Kilarney's Live! Irish Pub in Fairview Center was the place to be last night
as nine teams converged to compete for the vaunted title of Most Trivial in the regular
Tuesday night edition of King Trivia Pub Quiz! As always, the questions were awesome,
the teams were confused and the beer was flowing freely (or expensively, depending on
An actress named Tiffany Haddish,
Was feeling a little bit saddish.
Though she gave them hell,
On the show SNL,
Her award was shaped like a raddish!
What does it mean? You had to be there! Likewise, for an interpretation of F = ma you
might have gotten Fig Newton's second law of cookies! Do you play Settlers of Catan? If
not, you too, might have guessed it was Strip Geometry. Oooooh! They just keep coming,
folks. I can't make 'em stop. Congratulations to our newbie team, The Jerks, who were
the only ones to correctly identify the old PBS series, Ghostwriter. And a word of
advice to them, IFFY! and Not Suitable for Work... Wolfgang Puck is not Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Oooh! Ouch. Those clever quiz writers.
That's all the news that fits! Quiz Master Lou says have a great rest of your week; And

if you can't do that, aim for mediocre. You won't be disappointed. Bye for now!
