Monkey on a Cat's Back

That thing lying on top of the coffee cup used to be a plastic vial of catnip until Oscat went into a drug-induced bender and tried to swallow it whole.


Mixmaster J demonstrates the proper way to tap a Guinness (sans that shamrock trick that some do).

Evil Incarnate

Don't let those friendly smiles fool you. Bill and Marge are trivia assassins.

The Demonic Eye of Seth

Team Discovery Channel's size changes more often than Madonna's hairstyle. This night there were four of them (counting J); they tied for fourth and bested the Stone Cutters (I think).

Lititz VFW

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.

Bube's Brewery

Details (and maybe a few pix) to come, once I find my answer sheet. In the mean time, bone up on the Lord of the Rings and Poker for next week's competition.

Lititz VFW

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.

Bube's Brewery

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 Exposed

This just in: Tess's website (mentioned in the post below) is called Messy Tessy. (But she cleans up well).

Tess of d'Bubesville

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.

Darth Ivey

Just a reminder that both the Bube's and VFW shows this week will be in the prestidigitating hands of Chris Ivey. (Nice website, btw)

But, Is It Art?

It's been quite a while since I featured any contestant's answer sheet artwork on the website, so I've re-opened the gallery. Here we have Ben and Autumn's birthday greeting to me from late June.

The World According to Adam

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.

They Let Anyone in this Joint Nowadays

This strangely-familiar lady charged the stage and ripped into the Trashbag of Deelite, then leapt into her getaway car. Honest! (Mama always told me not to lie.)

Retro Chic

Now we know where Bube's gets their inspiration for their tablecloth patterns! Check out Karen's stylin' pants.

People, People Who Need Trivia...

Beware of the Shirt of the Week! This scary image was on this week's shirt, won by one of the Wise Men.

Whachu Talkin' 'Bout, Willis?

Looks like I'm reconsidering the wisdom of giving Adam the camera.

V for Vasectomy?

With the littlest Nutsack nearby, Shannon gives the victory sign a little prematurely ...

Titanic Trio

...since these three, Bube's Ahoy! (AKA Bonnie's Harem) were the eventual winners.

Josiah and the other Nutsacks always appreciate a good laugh.

He's Everywhere

Like Peter Parker hanging from a web, Adam experimented with unusual camera angles ...

Step Away from the Car!

...played around with close-ups...

You're In the Mind of Adam, Now

And, finally, experimented with the strobe effect. Thanks again Adam, for most of these pictures!

Lititz VFW

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?).

Bube's Brewery

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.
