Slog Happy Recap

posted by on May 9 at 11:01 AM

Team Youth Pastor Watch (AKA Team Rain Man) and Team Ecce Homo’s Enormous Penis both rocked the trivia game last night, rising well above four other teams to tie for first place after an hour of hard quizzing. In the end, Youth Pastor Watch took the huge bag of prizes via a tie-breaker. Congratulations to the winners (Scary Tyler Moore, Wisepunk, Rain Main, Infrequent, and Enigma). And a sloppy Stranger thank you to everyone who showed up and played and drank and guzzled fried fish nuggets (and especially to Wisepunk for delivering the scrumptious triple coconut cream pie).

I’m sure the commenters will fill you in on all the salacious details that I’m forgetting. Some photos are in our photo pool already.

In the meanwhile, here are the questions, in case you missed the party or want to quiz your mother this weekend:

Stupid, Stupid Crouton was my favorite Stranger column ever, to which I still make regular reference. Yay!

Posted by leek | May 9, 2008 11:21 AM

Couldn't make it. Sorryz.

Posted by Mr. Poe | May 9, 2008 11:51 AM

No Charlie Chong reference for us long-time readers? "That's what I'm trying to show you about" is still one of my favorite catchphrases ever.

Posted by Levislade | May 9, 2008 11:53 AM

Damn, I would have ruled....

Next time.....

Posted by boxofbirds | May 9, 2008 11:54 AM

I wanted that K-Fed clock so bad. Scary Tyler Moore is the key to winning, apparently. If you have trivia again she'll be the most popular Slogger ever.

Posted by Aislinn | May 9, 2008 12:05 PM

Apologies to everyone whose eardrums I may have abused.

Posted by Greg | May 9, 2008 12:10 PM

"who’s name I can’t recall"??

That's "whose".

Posted by pedant | May 9, 2008 12:21 PM

Our pictures are up in the Stranger Flickr pool.

Next time, EH's EP will dominate completely!

Posted by Jessica | May 9, 2008 12:30 PM

Wish I could have stayed past the first batch of questions.

Posted by Will in Seattle | May 9, 2008 12:35 PM

That pretty brunette on Team Youth Pastor Watch would be me. I've been a little out of the Slog loop as my last job didn't let me have internet at work (SUCKS!!), but I may be making a comeback.
And Slog Happy rules.

Posted by Enigma | May 9, 2008 12:37 PM

@2 If that wasn't you, then who promised to find and share a British man with me?

Posted by PopTart | May 9, 2008 12:46 PM

@5 I know, I was bummed about the clock too.

I take solace in the fact that all of my teammates were super fuckin' cool and if there would've been a prize for most alcohol consumed by a single team, we definitely would have won it.

Posted by Hernandez | May 9, 2008 12:58 PM

That was me. Teehee!

Posted by Mr. Poe | May 9, 2008 12:59 PM

Yes, Scary was the force that made our team win, but everyone pitched in and it made for a great night. My fav stranger cover in high gloss, the playboy book, another book, a dvd, NW film forum passes, and a babeland massage oil bar is quite a take for one night.

Next time we should play for a perfomance from Mary Kate's belly dancing group.

Posted by wisepunk | May 9, 2008 12:59 PM

@14: Only if Ashley does it too.

Posted by Greg | May 9, 2008 1:30 PM

Promise us the next Slogvia Night (sic) will include the question, "What is the greatest typo that ever appeared in the Stranger?"

Typo me, G!

Posted by Jeff Stevens | May 9, 2008 2:15 PM

Coconut cream pie?!? You were totally holding out on us, Wisepunk! At least STM SHARED her Pepperidge Farm cookie assortment!

Posted by COMTE | May 9, 2008 2:48 PM

Chop Suey's Laffhole?

Not anymore it isn't.

Posted by pgreyy | May 9, 2008 2:57 PM

The coconut cream pie went directly to Amy Kate, I did not have any either.

Posted by wisepunk | May 9, 2008 3:26 PM

Wow, these comments are boring. Where are the lewd remarks? The titallating tidbits? The salacious slander?

Posted by PopTart | May 9, 2008 4:49 PM

Sorry, PopTart.

We were distracted by the coconut cream pie.

Posted by Will in Seattle | May 9, 2008 5:11 PM

RE: That team name. My lawyers have been contacted.

Posted by Christopher Frizzelle's Enormous Penls | May 9, 2008 5:39 PM

@20: I said a lot of crazy, lewd shit, but that was mostly later at Charlie's after I'd gotten good and drunk.

Posted by Greg | May 9, 2008 8:07 PM

Also, Poe, if you're up for it and can find another, I'll film that shit.

Posted by Greg | May 9, 2008 8:09 PM

Hello Amy, not that it matters, but my name in your post is misspelled. It should be RainMan, not Rain Main. But thanks for a great evening.

And yes, Scary Tyler Moore definitely ruled Slog Trivia. I hope to be on her team again next time.

Posted by RainMan | May 9, 2008 8:10 PM

i haven't this much fun since i used to cyber with horny 18-year-old boys on msn messenger!

i had a lovely, lovely time, and even if we hadn't had slog trivia, i had the thrill of a lifetime when mr. poe grabbed my generous behind.

a million thanks to my teammates, RainMan, Enigma, Wisepunk and Infrequent. next time can we have Dominic Holden on our team? and i will bring cookies again.
