Before we get started I want to let you know how fun recording the last few episodes has been. I think you can really hear it in this one. The jokes about trumpet butt and fire down below really had us laughing. Marc is back for his second week asking questions and keeping us on our toes.
We start the episode with some warm up questions that really tickled our funny bones and then moved on the main event. This week’s midpoint question focuses on the Stanley Cup while the final tests your knowledge of well-known numbers. In the middle you’ll enjoy questions about music, alcohol, science (SCIENCE!), and others.

It’s funny to listen to myself go the snob route to explain why I wouldn’t know the answer to the cartoon question.
Popular in 1920 speakeasies an orange blossom was a mixture of orange juice and what?
I was impressed that Chris put together this question with the Gin Blossoms. But when I checked I found that the name had nothing to do with the drink. They got it from a slang term for rosacea used to describe a picture of WC Fields in a book called Hollywood Babylon.
Name the 4 teams that have the most Stanley Cup appearances?
Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings

I find it hilarious here that Chris felt the need to explain that he would have known the answer if I shared it with him. As if that was a revelation :-)
What Shakespearean play opens with “Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this son of York.”?

Did you guys follow how Chris arrived at his answer? He related it back to a West Wing episode. So crazy.
