On Tuesday nights, our team “Optimistic About Fourth Place,” plays trivia at Shameless O’Leery’s, a local watering hole. Some weeks, we do really well; like last week, we won second place! And that was actually the second time we won second place (see! it wasn’t just a fluke), which comes with a $20 bar gift card and some bragging rights at the office. Other weeks, we don’t do so hot; like this week, we finished somewhere in the neighborhood of fifth. Win or not, we have a grand time, and I am so glad to have friends who like to do this kind of thing on a week night.

For fun, here’s some recent trivia questions for you! If you know all the answers, then you should definitely come play on our team!

  1. Is Bob Dole dead or alive?
  2. What do you call a group of raccoons?
  3. Locate the following horse leg parts: pastern, gaskin, and cannon (this was a visual round question)
  4. Who stole the record number of bases – 1406 – during his baseball career?
  5. What is the fewest number of moves you would need to make to win a game of battleship?
  6. What is the name of the Greek goddess of wisdom?
  7. What is the sum of the first three prime numbers?
  8. What is the name of the world’s third largest ocean?
  9. What do these three things have in common: Jelly Bean, KitKat, and Ice Cream Sandwich?
  10. Name the four US presidents who were assassinated while in office.

If you want the answers, you can ask my friend Google.
