What a fantastic crowd that came out to a pre-Turkey Day quiz! Happy Thanksgiving to one and all. Remember that there will be trivia every Wednesday on into the new year with the exception of December 25th. And on January 1st, we’ll have our New year’s Raffle. Want a raffle ticket? Come out to play between now and then. And bring a newbie for an extra ticket. Possibly other reasons to get extra tix as we move along. Follow me on Twitter for the scoop.

This week? It was all about obscure sports mascots, puppet funerals and the southern working man’s lunch. And then there was this non-edible Turkey Day staple…

Five Good Reasons Not To Tip

You were seated next to the kitchen.

The wait staff was abusive.

Your entrée was still mooing.

The check was written in blood and, when read aloud, summoned several demons that tortured and killed your family.

It’s an outmoded practice that deserves scorn, derision and active rejection.

 

Five Things I’ll Never Say

This head cheese is phat yumptious!

Bartender, could you change the channel to TLC?

What this song needs is another rap breakdown.

‘Sup, bro? Check out my man-bun.

I bet that new James Bond movie passes the Bechdel test!

Let The Turkeys Get You Down

November 16, 2018

So … we’ve received all the relatives’ dietary restrictions and I think it’s safe to say that this will be the best gluten-free, carb-free, nut-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, low-fat, low-sulfur, low-protein, low-sodium, kosher, halal, paleo, macrobiotic, vegetarian Thanksgiving ever!

A wonderful pre-Turkey Day triviaganza for a bevy of most excellent Quizlings. Thanks to all who came out to play. Everyone have a great Thanksgiving and we’ll see you next week to cap off NEWBvember!

This week, we learned that narwhals bring out inner Ahab in some folks. We learned that Remember WENN was not a drama. And we learned that there is no such thing as too many cookies.

Plus we said goodbye to a former teen idol…

In the Cards

November 27, 2016

 

Moira’s parents gave me a birthday card that read:

 

“Happy Birthday, Son-In-Law!

We’re so glad you met our little girl

And happy for all the things you’ve brought her.

But please understand one thing, Son-In-Law,

We’ll NEVER forgive you for nailing our daughter.”

 

I guess you can say Thanksgiving was kinda awkward around here.
