INTERESTING MOMENTS

One of our hosts failed at German pronunciation on a bonus question, with birnbrot being said as “burn-brawt”. A native German speaker didn’t understand, though they said they would have gotten it right away if we had pronounced it “bihrn-broat”.

When we asked about the number of holes in men’s belts, half of the room immediately unbuckled their belts.

One team answered a question on whether the Starship Enterprise or the nuclear powered aircraft carrier Enterprise had a larger crew with a specific number, coincidentally the exact number that comes up when you google “USS Enterprise aircraft carrier crew size”. So they cheated, but aside from that, they couldn’t even manage to answer the actual question we asked.

And one of our hosts was described on our Testimonials page as being “the perfect amount of professional with a dash of sarcastic ass.” That’s about the greatest compliment a trivia host can be given!

See you next week.
