Online Quizes are Getting Out of Hand: My Picks for Future Quiz Titles


I won’t front (how gangster am I?), I take those online quizzes that have rapidly taken over the internet. Ryan and I even have an email thread with some friends in New York (S/O Jess and Justine) where all we do is take quizzes and share the results (and occasionally create celebrity death pools). As fun as these quizzes are I think some are getting less and less meaningful and more and more [weirdly] specific. Without further adieu, here are my top 10 quiz titles you should see popping up on the inter webs in the next few months.

1.) Which “Wickerman” Character are you?

2.) What Food Network star would be your Best Man/Brides Maid?

3.) Which 19th century decade do you belong in?

4.) What home improvement store are you?

5.) How loud can you scream on a crowded subway?

6.) What type of pulled muscle are you?

7.) How good are you at coloring?

8.) What would be your atomic number on the periodic table of elements?

9.) How many toes do you have?

10.) Which online quiz should you take next?



If I Was Going to Create a Bar Style Trivia, Here is How it Would Go


I have been to many a trivia nights over the years, and not one has been the ideal situation. They are either too long, too short, terrible food, too hard, or way to easy. This got me thinking. With all these trivia experiences under my belt I could probably make the greatest trivia game of all time. So here it is.

When and Where?

My Trivia night (from here-forth to be known as “El Preguntas” [“the questions” in Spanish]) would happen on the best night of the week, Monday night. This might sound insane, but Monday really is my favorite night of the week. What’s better than drinking your work sorrows away after the first day of the week? Nothing. Go ahead, get loaded up and play trivia, Tuesdays don’t count as real work days anyway. Oh and did I mention Monday Night Raw will be on all TV’s during trivia? Game, Set, Vince McMahon. (During football obviously half the TVs will be on MNF)

The “where” doesn’t matter as much as the “when”. Just as long as it’s a sports bar withs lots of TVs and egg salad on the menu.


Rounds & Rules

El Preguntas has 4 rounds of trivia goodness.

Round Uno

Pictionary – One person from each team competes in 5 rounds of pictionary-style games. (each round worth ten points)

Round Dos

Wrestling Entrance themes – Self explanatory. I play music, you tell me who strutted out to it. 10 themes, 2 points for every correct answer.

Round Tres

Physical Challenge – Arm wrestling, one-on-one basketball, 10-rounds of boxing…whatever i’m feeling that night. Tournament-style, with the winner receiving 10 points and second place receiving NOTHING.


Round Cuatro

Mental Challenge – Math equations, optical illusions, and word problems. 10 questions worth 2 points each.

And there you have it, El Preguntas. A no-nonsense trivia night for you and all your friends. I really don’t think any bar outside of Tijuana will hire me, but it doesn’t hurt to dream.


PS- Any and all tiebreakers will be decided by a steel cage match.
