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!
The folks at Kilarney's braved the rain and came out to play anyway. That's loyalty for
you! Wassata-U conquered all with three perfect scores and two Double-or-Nothing's in
the final three rounds. That says something for academia. Tequila Mockingbird took
second place and the Poonswagglers got third.
An excellent quiz from our quiz writers! Round Six was especially interesting. Match
the event to the city where it happened. Equal parts anecdotal and historical study.
Some people were old enough to remember where they were during the JFK assassination,
but not old enough to be around when Jesus was born. (At least, that we know of!) Of
course, being in the DFW area as we are, the JFK event has a particular resonance.
I would just like to say that the new quiz books that were printed without a Round Six
page was not a mistake. (Right?) We just use our Round Six handouts for the ballot
page instead. (Right?) So, when Quiz Master Lou was about to butcher a bunch of Quiz
booklets to compensate for the R6 missing page, it was just a jest! (Riiiiiiiiiight...)
Have a great rest of the week everybody!
Stormy weather cleared up just before trivia time at Kilarney's last night, enabling
seven seasoned teams and one newbie to go head-to-head in our usual Tuesday night
convocation. The newbie's, who styled themselves as I Don't Know, lived up to their
moniker and cut out after Round Four. When Quiz Master Lou asked "Where'd they go?",
the resounding crowd response was... You guessed it.
On slow nights, the wait staff at Kilarney's plays as the Bar Flies; And tonight, the
questions were definitely in their wheelhouse! With a Double-or-Nothing propelling them
into the lead in Round Two, they dominated the entire evening from start to finish. Of
course, they can't collect the prize, being employees of the establishment and all, but
that only makes it sweeter for the patrons, who get a cascade effect in awards. Second
place winner gets the first place prize and so on... How's that for trickle down economics?
"Too many" may have actually been the correct answer to the number of Mission: Impossible
films starring Tom Cruise.
The clay creature from Jewish folklore is not called a schmuck, but it may be one.
Any picture of a guy named Tom holding a guitar is Tommy TuTone. (Not!)
More teams got the Pokemon reference than QM Lou thought would in Round Five!
And with that, in the nature of a Public Service Announcement, QM Lou would like to leave
you with this serious thought... Every year, hundreds of children are shipped off to
mime school... Never to be heard from again.
Have a wonderful rest of your week everybody!
