At one point there was a near death experience as Larsma had to drive me back to the Estate to pick up the back up macbook. Fucking Apple. But big thanks to Larsma’s rally skillz. And her offer to give me two tickets to the Film Festival. She’s pretty much top notch.

Hold it there, kitty cat, OR Milwaukee’s Difficultest Trivia vs Toronto

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Palabra en la calle is that Torontario is looking to be Jack Nicholson to my Roman Polanski AKA Somebody’s looking to get cut AKA Biggie Smalls AKA Ready to die.

You see, I got word late last night that a certain chi-chi bar in Toronto is making trivia questions outta questions created deep in the depths of the brains of Co-Host and myself.

Broder Wu reports that The Ossington dropped this trival bomb “What time is displayed on timepieces in watch ads?” Broder Wu thought, “blobviously it’s 10:10, and blobviously they have heisted this question from Milwaukee Difficultest Trivia.”

Who the Schlitz does this place think they are? I’ve seen their menu. I’ve seen their decor.  I’ve seen their serious lack of skate photos in the background. It’s tragic, really. Though they do have this:

Now there is a slight, SLIGHT, possibility they came up with this question on their own. Highly unlikely. To settle the score I’m proposing the Ossington fly us up to Toronto for a trivia question creation match. They we’ll see who get’s their nose cut.

Part Second:

I think this is some sort of trompe l’oeil, and that everyone in this picture is the same size.

Trivia Left-overs

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Beef week at trivia last night. I think it’s the heat getting to the players. People need some snow, or at least I do.

But really, people were about to turn on us last night. Someone even threatened to kill Co-Host’s Dream Girl, and then he was like, “You’re going to kill Carly Fiorina?” Co-host is weird sometimes.

All this over some MFers claiming an “Antarctic Ocean.”

For real. Further proof of the failing school systems. Fucking Antarctic Ocean. Should have just called it the “Thingamajig.” Should have just denied the oceans exist. Should have just told me the earth was 6000 years old and people lived with dragons. Plebeians.
