Too Much Trivia in the Pants

Scored A Garruda!

§ Monday, January 31, 2011 @ 12:33 AM

Well done Ben, and well done team.

Where Did Our Whole Team Go

§ Sunday, January 30, 2011 @ 5:25 PM

We temporarily were well-staffed… and then 2/3 of them disappeared in about a two minute period. Where did y’all go?!

It’s Gettin’ Hot In Here…

§ Sunday, January 30, 2011 @ 3:06 PM

…but after forty hours of trivia without showering, I’m not sure we really want everyone to take off all their clothes.

Cookie Monsters

§ Sunday, January 30, 2011 @ 1:48 PM

“When I leave, your daughters will be pregnant and your cookies will be gone!”

Sunday Morning!

§ Sunday, January 30, 2011 @ 10:04 AM

Time for mimosas and a dance party!

Penis Butterfly Tattoos

§ Saturday, January 29, 2011 @ 12:49 PM

Penis butterfly tattoos are all the rage now and we’re all gonna get one after the contest. Kris will look really good with another tramp stamp to go with the first one.




The Sun Is Coming Up

§ Saturday, January 29, 2011 @ 6:58 AM

But the real reason things are picking up is because Dave and Sean came back from answering phones, and Sean is watching Jell-o and pudding wrestling.

We Did Our Part

§ Saturday, January 29, 2011 @ 6:52 AM

When are the rest of y’all sending down some phone answerers?

What are the ingredients to “dick gar guy tong”?

§ Saturday, January 29, 2011 @ 2:26 AM

This was a difficult question because all we got were websites for gay Asian porn and “how to turn a straight guy gay.” I will be applying these techniques to Corey as I’m guessing that he is very susceptible.

Sorry about the error message

There seems to be a glitch with the comments right now, but I’m not sure what it is.

Billy Dee Williams

§ Saturday, January 29, 2011 @ 1:17 AM

Colt 45 is running a contest where you can win a dinner with Billy Dee Williams and there is a picture of him inside the bottle. Quote from Trixie, “Now Billy Dee is inside me!”

Four Loko

§ Saturday, January 29, 2011 @ 12:40 AM

Kris and Sean hit some vintage Four Loko. It’s the end of an era.

I Love It When a Team Comes Together!

§ Friday, January 28, 2011 @ 9:35 PM

We are starting to assemble in the War Room. Here’s hoping Ben shows up in time to do the ceremonial consumption of last year’s final cheeseball before ten o’clock…

Come One, Come All!

§ Friday, January 28, 2011 @ 5:12 PM

In a little less than five hours the members of Too Much Trivia in the Pants will be hunkering down in the War Room for this year’s edition of the Great Midwest Trivia Contest, but you have an opportunity to catch up with your favorite stars of stage and screen when select members of Los Pantalones gather for pre-trivia cocktails and camaraderie down at Dr. Jekyll’s! Various members will be stopping down at this local watering hole — and one of our sponsors! — roughly between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 this evening. Have a beer with us, hoot and holler with us, and tell us how much you enjoy our sexy facial hair. Buy us a beer and maybe we’ll autograph something! This might be your last opportunity to see most of us before Sunday night, so don’t miss it!

Straight from the Horse’s Mouth

This little gem was posted on the trivia site this morning:

As you all surely know, the contest has in the past suffered from a lack of willing phone answerers. As you also know, this can reallllly be a drag. This year we are hoping to help that problem out by requesting that teams agree to specific blocks of time during the contest (to be decided during the registration period), in addition to the normal, volunteer-based phone answering.

We trust that teams will not take this as an opening to be even more unsupportive of the contest, by ONLY sending in phone answerers for those decided amounts of time.

With much thanks,

TGM Derrell :)

Sorry, Mr. Grand Master, but we will be unable to commit to this. If you’ve been around long enough, then you’re fully aware that you have no trouble with our team sending down phone answerers, but we simply don’t have enough people for us to be able to commit to providing answerers at a specified time. We will gladly send down more than our share of phone answerers, as we do every year, but guaranteeing coverage of a block of time is something we cannot do. Sorry.

Getting Our Thursday Night On

“She totally ate my ass cookie!”

Yep — set up of the War Room is well under way. Drinking beers and shooting the shit, so come on down and join in.

Trivia News Round-up

§ Thursday, January 27, 2011 @ 11:48 AM

Hey there everyone! As some of you already know, I have been without a computer for the last sixteen days, so I haven’t been in a position to do my usual tasks like respond to e-mails in a timely manner or post updates here on the site. At any rate, I am back in Appleton now, and am making use of my parents’ computer for the time being.

While I wait for my luggage to be delivered — it didn’t arrive with me on the plane from Chicago this morning — so I can change clothes, I thought I’d post links to a few stories.

First, we have the story in the Post-Crescent about this year’s contest:
LU’s annual trivia contest, kicking off Friday, feels a connection.

Second, we have the press release from Lawrence:
50-Hour Salute to the Insignificant Takes Center Stage as Lawrence University Hosts 46th Annual Trivia Contest.

And third, we have a seperate Lawrence press release about Grand Master Derrell Acon (so don’t say I didn’t warn you if there’s a question about this, or, say, a whole hour devoted to opera…):
Derrell Acon Wins Metropolitan Opera District Audition.

Now I’m going to go take a nap, but I look forward to seeing some of you tonight and the rest this weekend!


We’re Gettin’ the Blog Back Together

§ Saturday, January 1, 2011 @ 7:03 PM

Happy New Year from Los Pantalones!

For all of you followers of The Pants who tried to visit this site in about the last eleven months, you already know that the site was down for the better part of that time. The reason for this is that I transitioned our blog from Movable Type 4.38 to MT 5.01 after trivia back in February, and Six Apart totally changed all of their code with the new release, which messed up our blog. I have slowly been getting the site back online recently, and most of it seems to be functioning properly except for the comments, which I am hoping to have back up and running well in advance of the start of trivia less than four weeks from now. Thanks for visiting, and we hope you will check in with us again during this year’s contest.

UPDATE: After lots of experimentation, it would appear that the comments are now working again. I’ll leave the comments open and active on this entry so others can experiment and see if the comments are working for them, too. Feel free to leave a comment here (keep it clean!) to let me know if the comments are working for you. Thx!
