It looked like it was going to be a light night, but the crowd arrived in bits and pieces, eventually going full force. The Outlaws' reign of terror ended, but they still managed to take third. We're Here for the Beer nearly aced the picture round to take the crown, beating the hard-charging B-52s by one question. The aforementioned picture round also did in the appropriately named We Need an Old Fart team, who had the misfortune of being the youngest team to compete during 50s Music theme night. Speaking of which, Bert now remembers the difference between Connie Francis and Connie Stevens. Boot, Scoot and Annie won the prize for best team name. Room 2 once again took fourth, and chose spelling and geography as next week's themes. And Nick is going back to her witchy ways, threatening to have a santeria practicing priestess put a hex on me.

We started some new things tonight as we introduced a handicap schedule for large teams. But it was a gleesome threesome known as the Outlaws who took the gold for the second week in a row. We're Here for the Beer bested their farm team (We're Here for the Light Beer) and took second. Chicks and Dicks took the newly prized third position and Room 2 took 4th, choosing 50s music and tools as next week's themes. Ginny enjoyed Purple Rain, while Frank asked what happened to his No Prince request. Cindy and Sheila were temporarily displaced by Nix Lix, but everything returned to status quo. And the world's longest honeymooners had to leave, but Annie and Scoot stayed.

Marshall (Tincture of the Black Dove) and Sarah (Lovely Bubbly Jubblies) showed that the staff at Bube's love it so much that they come there on their day off. Emily, however, is heading back to Philly as the boards of musical theater are calling her back. The Nutsacks were smurfily rolling along in the lead until TDC snuck through in the end and kicked smurf in the third round. The Death Rays and the Fool Monkey had a go at a Captain Jack-off, with the Monkey taking third. The Rays then chose "The Goonies" and "The X-Files" as next week's themes. The Crabby Dicks will be losing the charms of Helen to a Tuesday night class. But we welcomed trivia newcomers the Heavyword Society, a family team of Harrisburg-based poets. Finally, pictured above is some Rapunzel (which makes sense only if you were there).

Tess, a Team Discovery Channel alumnus, told her team to kick some trivia ass for her. Tess left a comment on the blog, but neglected to say what her website is, so if you're reading this, Tess, please send it along so we can post your link.

Adam from Dead Bear Baby in a Jar took over as cameraman for this week's Bube's show. I was initially worried about what he would do (After all, this is the man who has his own drunken birthday festival known as Adamas). But my fears were unjustified (for the most part). We begin with a nice shot of his teammate Jen.

It was a fun night of trivia, laughter and extra-large condoms as we explored the world of 80s TV and sex. Scoot stood by his word and got Annie away from the club. Cal knows his dicktators. Carol wanted to know what happened to the spelling questions. Cathy wanted to know what happened to the easy questions. Ginny wanted to know if I could get some Prince music. And Deb wanted to know if I was avoiding her mother as I announced that Chris Ivey will be guest-hosting next week (the themes will be baking and alcohol -- or should that be baking WITH alcohol?).

It was a night of see-sawing, as the lead was held first by the Nutsacks (with special guest the Littlest Nutsack), then by the Fool Monkey, and then by the Death Rays. But the Bube's Ahoy team, led by Bonnie, came from out of nowhere to claim the coveted $30 gift certificate. The Toxic Olives also had a great last round and claimed second, the dynamic duo of John and Charles took 3rd, and the Death Rays once again took fourth (they chose Classic Monopoly and Belgian Beer as next week's themes.) The Nepotism Please team, comprised of various members of the Horn clan, were proud to beat the team that missed the first round and the team that left early. Kathy Stone of the infamous Goombas team put in a special aappearance. And Dead Bear Baby Adam (assisted by Jason) was this month's photographer, so stay tuned for his pix.
