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
That's the spooky truth. Quiz Master Loucifer says have a horrible week and be sure to
drive home real fast! (Hey! It's a joke. I'm JOKING. It's a Halloween thing. Get it?)
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!
