Joaks

I have yet to hear any feedback from last night’s show at Company Brewing. Sure, I have the scores, and we can go over them in a minute, but I want to know how Nick did with the pressure of REAL funny people on his heels. Did he do his bit on airplane food? Probably. …

Things Start to Die Now

If you had to estimate, how many watermelons would you say you consumed over the holiday weekend? Three, maybe four? As for me, I easily had four whole watermelons. But I also tossed back three cantaloupes.   It was a holiday weekend, so I decided to live a little. You know, give the taste buds …

We Get the Leader We Deserve

You all know gypsy is a pejorative term, right? Good, so shout out to all that weak-kneed suckers who sat idly by last night and let a team name themselves “Gypsy Danger”. But I’m not here to lecture you. Just go ahead and head down to Gypsy Taco and smother your subtle racism in trash …

Again the Solstice

Again the solstice, the longest day of the year. Though all these Wednesdays feel long. Nothing to prepare for. Just simply delivering the news of how yesterday was. We already witnessed the birth of the dynasty. Then, back then, it was a just a win for 3 Guys on a Fact Hunt. And we joked …

ASCENCION!

When historians look back at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia, we want them to focus on that one week, as May waned, in the 2017th year of the christian lord, when Who Pooped In The Pool ascended through the ranks at the Up & Under. To be clear, what these future people will find won’t be a …

Calling It!

Consider the 1932 World Series, in the fifth inning of game three, when Babe Ruth called his shot. That’s the man who knows what he’s doing. If it was me I would have walked up, tapped my baseball stick on the soles of my sport shoes, dead-eyed the pitcher, looked out over the cheering crowd …

The Texas Train Rolls On

It’s been brought to my attention Nick was not wearing a serape at Company Brewing last night. It’s like he’s already forgotten about the Lone Star state. Fortunately, Clementines from Madison created this drawing, demonstrating one way to wear such a fine garment.   Before we get too deep into the trivia recap from last …

Dust Up at the Up & Under

In some ways, it’s probably best the Moonbats weren’t in the house last night. They did’t need to witnesses the shake up that went down. But it wasn’t the usuals. No, no. It was a darkhorse. Bowser-Domino. Yes, they’ve been lurking for some time, but they never really seemed to be within striking distance. Until …
