August 28 Trivia Rankings

August 29, 2019

Another great week of trivia that, in all honesty, you should kick yourself if you missed. Seriously, we proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that our universe is nothing more than a simulation. Me, I enjoy being composed of nothing but ones and zeroes and, given the chance, will take the blue pill every freaking time.

Big Announcement! The Dog Days of Trivia continue through September. We will raffle off that DDOT gift basket on September 25th – the night we celebrate our tenth anniversary! You have to be present to win the basket but why would you want to miss the revels? Also, you can get extra raffle tickets all month long for any reason I’ve previously offered extra tickets this summer (check old posts and Twitter if you don’t recall).

This week, we were all about some Spider-Man foes, NFL retirees and Gopher State locales. Plus there was this time-traveling cola…

Now let’s see how the teams did this week. Pretty nifty. eh?

Summer is here (unofficially, of course, but we all know how hot it is outside) and that means one thing at Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night Trivia – ICE CREAM!!!!! Plus we kicked off the Dog Days of Trivia (sans doggies but maybe next week, eh?).  Thanks to all the Quizlings who came out to play. It was loads, literally loads of fun.

What did we do? We quoted Shakespeare in Rome, ousted a pretender to the throne in Candy Land and got real with some housewives on the West Coast. Plus there was this this colorful tune …

February 20 Trivia Rankings

February 21, 2019

Thanks to all the most excellent Quizlings who came to play on this wild Wednesday. If you missed it, you missed a fantastic night! Obama stopped by before he went to Cameron Indoor and he asked a few Presidents’ Day questions to the assembled. Then we all gained the power of immortality and/or the ability to smite our enemies with our minds. Also, we gave away a Robocop t-shirt and every team got gift cards because that was the kind of night it was. Plus we brought some people back from the dead (sort of).

Bottom line: Trivia is awesome. Never. Miss. A. Single. Week.

Along the way, we chatted about Big Apple cocktails, old Oscar people and fancy dog winners. Plus there was this catchy tune from the mid-aughts…

Now let’s see how the teams stacked this week and we’ll plan to do it again next Wednesday!

Ace Of Spades, Your Food is Ready 63

Trick Cur Treat

October 9, 2018

I’ve seen a lot of people dressing their dogs up in costumes lately. A Halloween thing, don’tcha know. Usually these nunderchucks wait until Christmas to adorn their cards with snaps of Fido wearing antlers and Ruff in a Santa suit, but now it seems hip to stress out puppy with a pumpkin parka or a skeleton hoodie.

Yeah, alright. Go ahead. Keep it up. Embarrass your canine. Make a mug of your mutt. Push poochie past the breaking point.

You may think it’s cute and all to have man’s best friend decked out in festive, seasonal garb but we’ll see who’s laughing when Cujo’s treating your jugular like a Milkbone.

“I will take my humiliation out of your flesh in bloody chunks.”

You know, I been meaning to tell you something.

See, I’ve noticed that old dog has chained you up all right. Basically, given you everything you need to live inside a twisted cage and to sleep beside an empty rage. And the other night, I even had a dream I was your hero.

In fact, forgive me for being blunt but, damn, I wish I was your lover.  I’ll rock you till the daylight comes and make sure you are so smiling and warm. I am everything. Tonight I’ll even be your mother (if you’re into role playing). I will do such things to ease your pain. I will free your mind and you won’t feel ashamed.

Shucks, for me there is no other. You’re the only shoe that fits and I can’t imagine I’ll grow out of it.

To sum it all up one more time:

Damn! I wish I was your lover!

Just sayin’ is all.

A little rain couldn’t keep the diehard Quizlings away! Thanks to all who came to play. The Dog Days of Trivia continue and I got to see some wonderful puppy pics this week. Next week: your exotic pet photos. But no spiders. (You think I’m joking? Try it, matey. I don’t want to see any arachnids unless one’s about to give me radioactive spider powers.)

I think we’ll raffle off that #DogDaysOfTrivia gift basket on September 29 – the date we’ll observe our ninth anniversary! Make plans to come out and celebrate with us!

This week, we talked of gassy muses, Potter siblings and animated Emmy noms. Plus there was this swingin’ musical number…
