Over the past few months, I discovered something wonderful: There's a bar in Brooklyn that runs Simpsons Trivia once a month! I live right near there! Like, an hour away! And I'd kick ass at it! But a few things stop me.
One: Time. Well, not for me. Since I'm still unemployed, I got all the time in the world. I wouldn't do this trivia night without my best friend Steve, who is just as big of a Simpsons nerd as I am. He's got a day job, and gets to sleep when the clock still says "pm."
Two: Money. Traveling from here to Brooklyn takes gas. Lots of it.
Three: General Anxieties. I hate my mental illnesses.
As soon as the above three problems are solved, I'll make it out there and indeed kick some major ass.
But besides all that, I recently learned that there's going to be Futurama Trivia Night, too! Which I'd also kick ass at! But it's in Toronto, where the original Simpsons Trivia Game takes place. But when it moves to New York, you'll see me there, too.
Now, the general theme for any trivia night participant is teams. And every team needs a great team name. When reading the blog for the Simpsons Trivia game, you can tell who the really geeky teams are just from the obscurity of their names.
My favorites being Chugalug House, People Who Look Like Things, The Christ Punchers, Works on Contingency? No, Money Down!, and Melvin & The Squirrels. Don't get the significance of any of those names? Well, then you won't make it that far here. Also, I'm saddened that they beat me to those names.
But back to Futurama. If anyone would like to name their geeky Futurama Trivia Team, I have a few ideas for you:
The Mongooses. The Fighting Mongooses
It's That Guy You Are!
Fry's Lower Horn
The Nasty in The Pasty

By the way, they're all taken. Just kidding, but it's totally something that Bender would do.
Sure, this is pretty much a rerun of my Futurama Band Names post from a few years back with a few new names, but they work here just as well. If you got any suggestions to add, feel free to put em in the comments!
