After a long hard day of drinking tea in the underground Fantagraphics comics library, tapping away at our keyboards transcribing conversations between famous cartoonists, we interns needed to unwind. How better to do this than by drinking booze and testing our knowledge of geeky things?
We (Brittany, Gavin, Jessica, and our fearless leader, Kristy) tromped downtown to a lovely little pub to attend the Geeks Who Drink trivia night. It was tough to settle on a team name, not for lack of ideas, but because there are so many juicy possible namesakes in the Eros catalog. After hemming and hawing between such titles as "Yuppies, Rednecks, and Lesbian Bitches from Mars" and "The Milk Mamas," we decided to go with "Anal Intruders from Uranus."
Our college educations paid for themselves in helping to identify cross-dressing Australians, heavy metal xylophone music, cereal mascots and Indiana Jones' favorite hiding place. Although, how we ever confused Little Miss Sunshine with Trucker Fags in Denial is still a mystery.
The Anal Intruders from Uranus wound up in 4th place. But, geekily enough, Kristy left with inspiration for a story based on the names of the 1st and 2nd place teams, Werewolf Quinceañera and Werewolf Bar Mitzvah. Tell me who the real winner is there.
Which EROS title should we name our team after next?
• Housewives at Play
• Venus with a Hot Crotch
