Local patrons throng to a local watering hole each week for Trivia Tuesday. DC lobbyists, college kids, teachers, doctors, dentists & probably even Indian chiefs gather to try to best each other in an inane, arcane, pub game.
One of my chicas went Tuesday nite, & she was amazed. All these competitive DC Types were out to show they were the best. And they weren't just competing in the trivia arena. They competed for best team names, too.
Some of the notable teams apparently acquired their names from the Internet, where just about anything is readily available, including Pub Trivia team names, near as I can tell. Crash Test Dummies. Tears for Beers. Michael Vick Humane Society.
But the best, the most original, the funniest, according to my chica?
You've Been ShamWowed, Billy!
RIP to the Loud Pitchman, Billy Mays, dead at the age of 50.
They say celebs die in "threes." Well, Billy did his last Shout-Out on Sunday. Karl Malden cruised the Streets of San Francisco for the last time yesterday. And Harve Presnell, who played "Annie's" Daddy Warbucks on Broadway & William H. Macy's creepy FIL in "Fargo," took his last curtain call yesterday, as well.
Any thoughts on this crazy summer? I say RIP to any more celebrity obits...
