Inspired by this great item in The Awl last week, I dug out a piece I'd been toying with sometime, and the Awl was game. Just published today: The 10 Dumbest Things People Say to Quizmasters. Specifically what they say to me me, of course, but I think it applies largely to most bar quizmasters…or at least the non-crappy ones, who may be an exalted minority. (I know, No. 8 isn't as universal. But there was no way I could omit it.) Enjoy!
