Last night was trivia night again, and our usual group welcomed redheadedali to the ranks. (You can read her wonderful post recently featured on The Enchanted Inkpot here.) Consequently, we kicked some Name That Tune Round ass, since in addition to being generally brilliant, redheadedali is pretty much a walking music encyclopedia.

Unfortunately, that was pretty much the only round out of 8 in which we fared at all well.

Out of a possible 80 points, we scored a measly 35 1/2. Pathetic. We didn't even manage half of the answers in the Nerd Round. Do you have any idea how demoralizing that is to a table of self-proclaimed uber-nerds?

Even Winged Monkey was shocked at our poor showing, especially when I revealed that I had been unable to remember the name of Crockett's pet alligator in Miami Vice in the Television Round. (WM was apparently a big Miami Vice fan during his teen years and has been making Miami Vice references sporadically ever since the new Psych commercial featuring the Miami Vice theme song started airing.)

The night was not a complete loss, however. I learned that Sid Caesar, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Yogi Berra are all still alive and well; I learned that Lou Gehrig was the first athlete featured on a Wheaties box (our guess, Bruce Jenner, was second); and I learned that people drive on the left side of the road in Malta. Much knowledge was added to my store of useless facts.

At least I can feel secure in the knowledge that I remembered Rose's hometown of St. Olaf on The Golden Girls. Because really, when it comes right down to it, Rose makes just about everyone smile. While Zsa Zsa? Well, she's hit or miss in the smile department.
