Here's half of BINGO, a fun new team of battling family members that played for the first time tonight. The hall was packed. I'd like to think it was because of trivia, but the $1,800 pot for signing the book may have something to do with it. Tonight's main story was Chicks and Dicks, who had been leading all night, fell to Room Two in the final round. Then, to make matters worse, Erma quickly fell to Dave in the the Captain Jack-off™, so Trivia @ 8 got the cash. The Zombies were only two points behind and there was a tie between the B52s and We're Here for the Dots. Mixed Company got next week's theme choice and they are going with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (I think Grant may have had a hand in that choice). Cheryl, meanwhile, had to settle for mystery meat nuggets from the Trashbag of Deelite.

Quietly Making Noise has been slowly on the rise the last several weeks, climbing from seventh to fourth to second and now, first! The Slap was second, followed by Loismustdie@nutsack.com. Puff N Suds escaped seventh and rose to fourth, followed by Team Discovery Channel and Karft Acrimony and Cheese" Children of Divorce Cry for It! Kid Rock's favorite team, the Toxic Olives got to pick next week's theem choice (see below).

Since Frank had to wait until Sunday for his VFW update, I thought I better do a quicker post this week. It was an exceptionally high-scoring night with our first ever three-way tie for first between Chicks and Dicks, Trivia @ Eight (plus or minus Buttery Steve) and Prius. Chris and Greg's finish was truly phenomenal, as they managed 9 out of 10. We had a special two-person extra questions tie-breaker, with Trivia at 8 victorious. The super-sized Room two was fourth. BBC was fifth and I forget who came in sixth (D&M?) The B52s, with a very respectable 74 (I think) ended up in seventh and chose the Civil War as next week's theme.

As the Bottle Drains made a return appearance at Bube's and promptly asked for the answers to next week's questions. That might help them, since they came in eighth tonight. Last week's theme-pickers, Puff N Suds, finished in seventh once more and are keeping it in Toontown, since they are going with "Family Guy." The dynamic duo of Faith Plus One took sixth, followed by (or is it preceded by?) We Don't Have the Thought Processes to Come Up witha Catchy Name. There was a tie for third and a tense Jack-off™ between Seth of TDC and Ben of the Slap, with Team Discovery Channel winning its first tie-breaker in five years! Leopold Butters Scotch took the silver and Christian Bale Punched Me in the Nutsacks took first. I had taken a picture of Steve and A.K. of the Sacks, but I think it broke the lens of my crappy cellphone.

Sunday night trivia at Chuckles gives you a nice glow-in-the-mouth feeling, as evidenced by LJ and the Castaways' Barb. Glowing the most was Skirtland, who captured first. Ubersmack was second and the Intoxicated Intellectuals were once again third. Farther back were the seventh-place Lapcats, who chose "professional wrestling" as next week's theme.
Last night was Earth Trivia Night at the Barnstormers as I treated eight teams from Bube's and the Lititz VFW to celebrate my fifth anniversary at those venues. We all had a blast, even if the Barnies did not win. I passed my camera around and here are some of the results (I decided to go with only one of the 78 pix of Carol and Amy).

Once again I Left my notes at home, so this is on memory. The Drunken Stepfathers merged with Room Two to take the grand prize. We then had the shortest Jack-off™ in history, with only three teeth pushed down. Carmen now holds the record, so Trivia at 8 got second and Chicks and Dicks third. In seventh was Alice in Wonderland, who chose card games as their theme. The other highlight of the night was The Foreplayers who played Russian jelly bean roulette.

It's always good to see the Crabby Dicks, who made a rare return appearance to Bube's. Traci, as always, asked for some extra tickets. There was no stopping the Nutsacks, who continuned their reign of terror. But they barely squeaked by the Ice Fly. A little farther back were the Toxic Olives, who managed to make it despite their leader's absence. Quietly Making Noise is quietly making its way up the leader board, too

In this post-show shot, Paul is oblivious that Tim is hitting on a repulsed Trish, while Deric spends some quality time with his date (Pam, that is, not Duane). They just took home the gold, while Skirtland and the Intoxicated Intellectuals were right behind. A new team, Second Chance, almost made third place, followed by the Team With No Name and Out of the Vortex. The Tidy Bowlers, well rested from their vacation, took seventh and chose "Gilligan's Island" as their theme. Rabid Fox Syndrome, meanwhile, did a spectacular crash and burn and will be checking in to Celebreality Rehab.
