Minds dirty with trivia

First off, when it comes to team names, you people need to get your minds out of the septic tank. Last night, among the team names, we had one instance of titz, one douche, one fournicators, one poos, one fucking, and two queefs. Not to mention a team called "Elizabeth Edwards Cheat Strong Cancer Bracelet," which is just all kinds of wrong.

Regardless, it was a good night. I know I often regret it when I do, but I'm going to take a flying chance here and declare that last night was one of the best BQTs ever. Not this month, not this year: ever. I'm ready to suffer the consequences.

What made it so good?

(1) The Pop Music Thesaurus. Always a winner. And just because you seemed to enjoy it so much the first time, once again, tell me: Name the song whose opening line is as follows, after being run through my mental thesaurus: "I possess an interlarded beverage treat that draws the totality of the Y-chromosomed to the vast expanse, and the quality of them reigns amid a more lofty echelon to the quality of you." (God, I hate that song.)

(2) "Busting Blocks in the Summertime," which by the way, is one of my favorite titles of an audio round ever, struck the perfect balance of easy (name this incredibly huge movie that everyone's seen) and challenging (name the year it came out, most likely during a summer you spent stoned).

(3) I was truly honored that you all booed when I announced the quiz's screwy schedule for the next couple months. It made up for all that cheering when I announced the "Wait…you have a girlfriend?!?" Smart-Ass Point.

(4) I got to ask a Quadri-Question about apes. I love apes.

(5) We got a nice chant of "USA! USA!" going during the Olympics question.

(6) The undefinable special thing that happens when people get together and have a good time. Or maybe it's just that we gave away Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Onto the standings. Weird scoring last night: Two of the titans of the BQT, Fantastic Fournicators and Gerard Depardouche, battled for first place, with the FF coming out on top by one point. But both were mighty competitors. How mighty? Third place was a full ten points behind the Douche.

1. Fantastic Fournicators (I know, I know, I'm sick of these guys winning too)
2. Gerard Depardouche
3. Team! The Musical
4. Incontinental Congress
5. Even Cowgirls Get the Poos

Back on the 25th. Soon after, some live political trivia–more details in this space soon.
