Brady Street's finest fellowships united at Jack's this past Sunday for Quizmaster's "You Shall Not Quiz" event. Ultimately the race of men were tested on the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films (to date) and a 70-point haul saw 24 teams tackle some of the toughest LOTR trivia on Middle Earth.

In the end, two teams tied at the top of standings with an impressive 65 from 70 points, as The Prancing Ponies and Hobbitual went at it in sudden death to determine the one quiz team to rule them all.

The tie breaker question asked the wealth of Smaug, as stated by the Forbes Fictional 15, and The Prancing Ponies' answer of $17 billion was closer to the actual answer of $54.1 billion....



They lined up for their championship photo outside, during what was describe by one team as "polar vortex II: the Desolation of Milwaukee."

Also, with the quiz being for charity, the $425 raised would go to Feeding America, as determined by our champs.

That meant second place was handed to Hobbitual, who are obviously stellar LOTR nerds, being just a three-person team...


What a quest from them!

Finally, the real fun was had during the reading of the team names, with the best LOTR-inspired name getting a prize also.

Some honorable mentions went to...

  • The Tolkien Branch of scientology was founded by Elrond Hubbard
  • If Legolas' penis was a box and his semen was an arrow, I wish the small of my back was the target!
  • The Hobbit and the unnecessary sequels
  • Tolkien up: getting higher in the Shire 
  • Speak friend and enter... that's what she said!

But ultimately, Quizmaster Ryan selected "A Bilbo is a girl's best friend" as the best one and that duo walked out with a bar tab...


We wanna thank everyone that came out that night and remember our next event --- Dead Man Quizzin': The Walking Dead Quiz --- is at Jack's on Sunday March 2nd.

Don't miss it!

Until next time Middle Earth, drink while you think...
