Trivial Pursuits...

Monday nights are Trivia Nights at the Publick House bar on Devine Street here in Columbia. Normally I work, but due to a training I had this morning (for reading to kids at Storytimes- fun stuff) I was off this evening and came in to help the "Little Lebowski Urban Achievers" try to win some glory. The Little Lebowskis are normally Mike, Matt, Jenny and Daniel, and I believe Chrissy when she can make it. Well, this evening, it was just Matt, Mike and I since the others were AWOL. Eventually we added two random folks named Paul and Lisa, but we did indeed still lose big-time.

However, we all had our moments of glory: Matt knew Ford was served as V-P and President without being elected to either, Mike knew all the sport questions regardless of the sport in question, Lisa knew Tab was Coke's first sachirine based drink, Paul knew the Dept. of Transportation would have jurisdiction over a leaky oil line (though we didn't use his answer and he himself ultimately doubted it), and yours truly knew that the Muppet Show band was call Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. You gotta play to your strengths, right?

Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem

[And it is Dr. TEETH, not TOOTH like the judge said. We should have gotten extra points for that!]

Triva Pursit Rocks! Depending upon the Edition of course.

My little sister and I were a deadly duo when playing with family members. Add my mother to the group and then we became the Threatening Trio.

I use to play the original edition, but it’s a bit dated. (The largest country in the world is no longer the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic).

By the way, Animal is my favorite member of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. Gotta watch those crazy Muppet Show TV episodes? (Grin).
