He got to see some hard-hitting competition, as Room Two finally toppled We're No Biscuits from the winner's seat. Chicks and Dicks were close behind, with the Biscuits in third. The B52s placed a respectable fourth and chose cars of the 1950s as their theme. Tyson's grandparents then chose American Indian chiefs as their theme. If they only had won second place, they could have afforded to send him home via first-class Fed Ex!

Also, props to the Jon Shober Gang, who like to see their name in print.

It looked like there was going to be a massive tie in the end, since everyone was log-jammed by the end of the third round. But The SuperNovas continued their momentum and took the top spot. The Novas like to change their names from week to week, but you can usually find them seated at the bar (appropriately enough for a team that used to be called the Boozehounds). The Price Is Right welcomed back Connie Price and took second. In third was Ubersmack, which benefited from Tim's newly shorn head. The Tidy Bowlers placed fourth and chose Spongebob as their theme. then there was a tie between arch-rivals Vortex and a sugared-up Skirtland, with Lee besting the Belly. Skirtland at first chose "24" as their theme, but then changed it to "English kings." Hopefully the Bowlers are reading this blog, otherwise they'll be studying the wrong subject.

You appreciate the finer things in life. You have a split personality - wild or conservative, depending on your mood. Wherever you go, you like to travel first class. Luxury, style, and fun - who could ask for more?

Special thanks to Dennis for keeping me historically accurate on a couple questions. The Flying Tigers, for example, were not Mustangs, as I had erroneously stated. (I think they were Tomahawks)

Trashbag prizes included a drinking bird, a copy of Menopause for Dummies (won by the age-inappropriate MJ) and a box of doggy doo bags, which Beth will use to police Deric. A fun night of 19 teams and one country (in fact, the Republic of the Tidy Bowlers was so large that they spun off their own colony, the Tidy Bowl Outcasts.

It was truly a fun night, with a full house and teams flip-flopping in the standings. The Fool Monkey Mourns the Loss of the Stardust and the Chubby Stubbies led the first three rounds, but both teams self-combusted in the final round. The Monkeys placed fifth and chose historical earthquakes as their theme. The Wise Men took fourth and chose Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice. The Toxic Olives welcomed back the long-lost Ellen and placed third, followed the biggest movers of the night, Total Disagreement. They went from 7th to 2nd, scoring 7 out of 10 right in the end. But, when the dust cleared, it was the Tesla Death Rays who claimed victory.
We also welcomed back Rebecca as one of our servers and said hello to Matt, who joins us as our regular bartender. I think Matt is stalking me, since he also showed up in disguise behind the bar at Symposium on Thursday night, where Damion Wolfe was playing.

We also learned that ETOH is hospital code for alcohol, Shemat needs to pay attention to their dad more, and Skirtland never heard of Soul Asylum. The Shitheads were doing well, but disappeared. When I asked if anyone had seen the Shitheads, many teams volunteered their suggestions.
In case you missed the announcement, Chris Ivey, the Joan Rivers of trivia, will be subbing for me next week, so be afraid!
