Shooting From The Hip

The Company Brewing crowd is committed. 100%. More heart than a Juggalo. Which reminds me, Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia is totally willing to take this show on the road for the Gathering of the Juggalos in beautiful Oklahoma City.
Anyway, the Company Brewing teams rolled into last night’s show completely blind. I was in Chicago to attend the National Confectioners Association Sweets and Snacks Expo and pre-diabetes accelerator, and had to make a last minute request for Elle Pea to put up a post.
Regardless, teams still showed up. Teams like Some Degree of Kevin Bacon and Gilmore Girls With Low Self Esteem, who scored 24 and 32 points respectively. Mush came out hot and put up 35. But they were bested by the likes of Chef Demogordon Ramsey and Penta-Graham Crackers, who both put 36 points on the score sheet. Smooth by Santana Featuring Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20 crawled out from whatever toilet of trivia they’ve been playing since The Hotel Foster shut down and finished with a strong middle of 37 points. Das Tunnel Snakes ended the night with 47 points, just off the leaders’ board.
Another team that rolled back the stone and resurrected themselves like an oversleeping Jesus, was the Reclusive Wankers. They walked in, slapped 53 points on the table and walked out with third place. 62 points and The Poor Taste in Naming trophy went to Was That Chris Cornell Hanging Around Begging For Ativan? Interesting fact about The Poor Taste in Naming trophy: It’s just a 17-inch Asus tablet, with a .gif, or .gif however you pronounce it, of a hand making a jerk off motion with the words “get over it” in huge type with heavy drop shadow. It’s a fantastic piece and can be seen in the trophy case on the south end of the lobby at Wisconsin Hardest Trivia Global Headquarters and Rap Emporium.
Finally, the win last night went to the team some have come to know as Tits & Giggles, but is now being recorded as Pratik and the Dead Weight. They won the evening with 70 points. Not bad work, Pratik.
Now we get to see if the teams at the Up & Under fare any better. Will they be able to put get it together and crush categories like Constitutional Law, the History of Peru and Empire Records? We’ll find out tonight thanks to Celebrity Guest Host Andy Berg and Lewis, the man who is leading the research into retinal scrape, or visual fry, which is really just old people finding some reason to criticize the way young women look.
The show starts tonight at 7pm. Be there.
