I have lots of trivia-geek friends

Monday's show was another big, huge, tremendous hit, regardless of the fact that I cannot tell the difference between China and Japan. (To explain: I asked the question, "The Tale of Genji, written in China in about 1010, is sometimes considered the world’s first what?" Turns out it was written in Japan.) Faux accusations of racism abounded. I got called "Whitey." People were asked why they hated America. Good times, great oldies.

The debut of A Completely Cool Color Cwiz was fun too, though again Crash Mansion's projector bedeviled my well-laid plans (apparently, light beige is invisible on those screens). But it was successful, and don't be surprised to see it again (especially if you click here now).

Also some good Smart-Ass points: Tilly and the Wall don't use a drummer, they use Meg White; the color that shares its name with a duck is l'orange; in older times, a sham marriage between homosexuals was called Anderson Copper (you probably had to be there for that one). You people are fucking funny!

The results…

1. Even Cowgirls Get the Poos (yes, a large team, but only their second appearance at the BQT, I believe)
2. Strippers for Stephen Hawking
3. Ich Bin Ein BQTer (formerly Robin Hood and His Merry Meningitis)
4. Sugah Titz
5. Jokebat Mountain (Cinderella story; came from way behind thanks to a perfect score on the audio round)

Next show: The return of one of my proudest pieces of trivial work, The Pop Music Thesaurus. All new, of course. And no blasted DVD projector necessary!
