March 8, 2018

What a great night! Over 100 Quizlings in attendance which means the first prize was doubled courtesy of your friendly neighborhood quizmaster. Huzzah! Let’s keep that up, shall we? The awesome attendance, that is – not the, uh, doubling of the first prize (I have a mortgage to pay, after all).

Meanwhile, please NOMINATE Tomato Jake’s for Best Trivia Night in Durham County at under Out & About (wonderful things will come if we win, QM’s promise!).

I’ve eaten a lot of breakfast cereals in my life. Sugary sweet corn pops, crunchy bran flakes, fruit-infused smacks and nuggets. There was a time when a day wouldn’t go by that I didn’t cram some graham into my gob. Ah. But for every Freakies and Pink Panther Flakes, there’re dozens of cereals I’ve never savored, yet think of fondly. Here are the Top Ten.

Quake. In the early 70s, kids were treated to a friendly, frenzied competition between a space alien with a propeller on his head and a broad-jawed, caped miner. It was the generation of Quisp vs. Quake, two Quaker cereals that still provoke fierce devotion from former devourers. Me, I was a Quisp kid. (Hey, he was a freakin’ ALIEN! That’s so cool.) I never tried Quake, but I always had a respect for the big lug.

Cocoa Puffs. God, those commercials made me nuts. (more…)

Is Fruit Brute vulnerable to silver? Can Count Chocula be killed by a stake through his heart? Does Frankenberry run in fear from fire? And what’s up with Boo Berry? Is he Peter Lorre’s ghost or what?

Dammit, my breakfast demands answers!
