Recap: The angst! The angst!

First of all, I am ready to go the Hell. The four-part question in round 3—on literary suicides—was perhaps in poor taste, but come on, it's not like any of you knew those people personally. Although I swear, Hunter S. Thompson once walked right past my desk, blowing one of those little small plastic whistles, and I smelled him smoking weed in my boss's office. I've lived an odd life.

It was an extra-challenging night at the BQT, but that's the way it shakes out sometimes. "Cryptic Geography NYC" tested your head, your brain and your mind too. The first part was a clue to the NYC landmark's location, the second part its name. My favorite: "In the far end of Handler: The fishing equipment, affected by THC." YouTube video soon.

Also tonight, we mentioned the forthcoming Fan-Generated Question of the Week (better name TBD). Visit our Facebook page and click on this discussion and submit your best trivia query; my favorite will show up at the next BQT. Free point for you!

And speaking of next BQT, we're returning to (Le) Poisson Rouge. But first…the THREE-WAY FINALE!

It was nerd-o-rama, as representatives from returning champs Incontinental Clown Posse, the Fantastic Fourincators, and Strippers for Stephen Hawking took the stage. Smart guys, but incredibly, nobody even hazarded an answer to "What movie featured a character whose final words were 'Corn nuts'?" (Oh, man, the audience was steamed on that one.) But John of the Strippers, back against the wall with zero points, pulled out victory on "What vegetable is a national emblem of Wales?" and, finally, "Several years ago, what annoying female celebrity was associated with the following word: kinkajou?" He's so Hollywood.

Your winners:
Yes, she's holding up a $20 bill. She won that, you know.

Your next show: Monday, May 31 (yes, Memorial Day), back at (Le) Poisson Rouge on Bleecker Street. Bookmark the calendar and never get lost, ever.

Part of the reason we were all gasping was that the corn nuts line has appeared at the BQT in the past - possibly within the past year (although I admit I'm getting to the age where all the years run together). You had a 4 part question with last words...and that time we actually had to know that it was Heather Chandler!
