I’ve consulted with the sentient being that is this week’s questions, and I return to you with good news. Even after a drawn-out slug-fest that saw Das Tunnelsnakes take first place from Shart of Glass and 3 Guys on a Fact Hunt last night, The Questions are ready to kick down the door at Up & Under and show Brady Street what’s what.

I’m sure some of you are thinking the, “the sentient being that is the collected information of one week’s worth of trivia questions? That concept is dumb as hell.” Well sure, maybe it’s not great. But what is consciousness, but ongoing awareness of information gathered, interpreted and used to anticipate what is ahead. Consider how just the simple knowledge of The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living changes the way you look at a stack of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies, or your aging grandparents.

Or, consider the way you studied for this week’s questions. We know there is a Viggo Mortensen round so there could very well be some Lord of The Rings questions. Using all of your collected trivia knowledge, you have to assume that I set out to write solid Viggo questions, but instead spent 6 hours trying to convincingly render images of Gritty into the naked fight scene from Eastern Promises.

That seems reasonable? But a sentient stack of questions is ridiculous? It’s like you guys have never seen Marjorie the talking trash heap from Fraggle Rock. Or Pythia. At least these trivia questions do not stink of rot.

Anyway, Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia heads to Brady Street tonight. There you can find Lewis, a man who as been has spent the last seven years espousing the theory that The Beastie Boys’ Fight for Your Right to Party and Make Some Noise videos are part of the Lord of the Rings universe because it’s actually Elijah Wood playing Frodo playing Ad-Rock playing younger Ad-Rock and the whole pie thing because we all know how Gimli loved some whipped cream pies, coming at you with 50 questions. The show starts at 7pm. See you there.
