November 9 Trivia Rankings

November 10, 2016

Yes, it was a somber night at Wednesday Night Trivia. Most were nursing recent political wounds (those that caused them were perhaps out celebrating – hard to say). But we persevered and triviaed on.

In case you missed it – we counted electoral votes, rewrote literary history and made a big hamburger even bigger.

Plus there was this guy…

March 15, 2016

It’s March 15th and you know what that means – The Ides Of March! Boy howdy! But around here we don’t read no Shakespeare, no way (we do that all the other days of the year).

Nope. On the March 15 here at The Flehmen Response we JAM to that one-hit wonder The Ides of March and their Top Ten hit Vehicle!

Suggestive lyrics! A 70s vibe that won’t quit! Damn! Don’t need no soothsayer to tell me it rocks!
