Those who may recall know that one of Quizmaster Lou's favorite quips is, "The more you drink, the better you think!" That adage seemed to hold weight last night at Kilarney's as resident champs
Tequila Mockingbirds came from third place and paced themselves all the way into a first place win! Do some biochemistries really work that way, or was it their T-Shirts? Check out the pix above of Alex and his lovely lady sporting the appropriate GoT apparel. I'll Google It! got knocked back to second place while newly registered Wossamotta-U danced neatly into third.
As we enter the doldrums of summer, beware the heat. It'll git ya! Why, on the way to Kilarney's last night, I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were walking. Hopefully, where you play, the establishment is well air conditioned. Come in, have a cool refreshing beverage, and leave the heat outside! We would all do well to remember this advice from the classic 1953 sci-fi flick, It Came from Outer Space...
Stay cool and have a mellow rest of your week, peoples! Until then, Quizmaster Lou is signing off!
The crowd at Kilarney's appears to be growing exponentially. Huge crowd, late comers, the whole nine yards.
Welcome to new teams Wossamotta-U, Rowdy Rhodies (as in Rhodesian Ridgebacks) and Valor of the Galaxy (who had to leave early... Something about defeating alien invaders to save the earth or something.)
Lawyers, Guns & Money dropped in to play a few rounds then popped off again. (Presumably to go negotiate a hostage rescue in Venezuela.) The IFFY!/Blood, Bath & Beyond alliance seems to have reached an amicable accord. When they play at Kilarney's they're IFFY and at the L&C on Thursdays they're the BBB. If and when they take over the world, they will be reasonable and even handed overlords, thus giving the media nothing to write about. I'll Google It! and the Poonswagglers brought their usual comraderie and enthusiasm to the fore while the Divorcees did what divorcees usually do... Conduct their business from the bar.
Some interesting weirdness cropped up during the festivities. Round Two was all about Witches... Which the Poonswagglers were able to get the most correct answers to, putting them in the lead... With
13 points. The number of members in a witches coven! Best Wrong answers to the question, "What does WAG stand for in pro sports..."

Resident champs, Tequila Mockingbirds took home the gold, as per their usual. Migratory Pickles on a Plate ate second place while the AFCF (aka Allen Fairview Chamber Friends) surrounded and overwhelmed third, a feat made possible by having about a hundred bodies at their table! (They looked like Calvera and his forty
bandits from The Magnificent Seven over there!)
This week's parting shot comes to us from the late Irish poet and IRA member, Brendan Behan, who wisely wrote - "The most important things to do in the world are to get something to eat, something to drink, and somebody to love you."
Have a great week everybody!
There's a new kid in town at Kilarney's. The Allen Fairview Chamber Friends (henceforth referred to as the AFCF) have returned to
challenge the status quo, knocking resident champs, the Tequila Mockingbirds down to third place. (And they were only able to do
that by winning the tie breaker from I'll Google It!) The Poonswagglers have stayed consistently in the winner's circle, however, and ended up snagging second place honors.
Last night's quiz has prompted Quizmaster Lou to wax poetic on the variety of subjects put before the competitors.
There once was a toy shop Funko Pop
Whose merchandise made it to the top
Twas not the big heads
But bad taste instead
Critics claim with fury they're a flop!
In old Egypt, a quaint little band
Built some pyramids out on the sand
How they did it, you see?
Is still a mystery
But the rest of us still think it's grand.
Round Five is Find the Connection
Comic strips were the inflection
Superman went AWOL
Spidey's not on the wall
Perhaps super hero injection?
Welcome to newbies Braying Mantis! IFFY! and Blood, Bath and Beyond, keep up the alliance. The questions are bound to land in
