WEEK IN REVIEW: St. Patrick's Day shenanigans

Before we mention what happened after trivia on St. Patty's Day, here's Global Times' piece on Jim as part of its ongoing "Who questions the quizmasters" series:

Name: Jim (aka "Jimmy Neutron") Kirchhoff

Age: Would you still believe 16?

Quiz: Souk [editors' note: currently defunct - for now at least - Jim has found temporary refuge under Kro's wing]

Amount of years in Beijing: Eight

Strengths: The gift of gab.

Weaknesses: Kryptonite.

I'm running a quiz in Beijing because: I crave the spotlight.

Specialty?subject: Girls.?Who am I kidding? I run a quiz....

How come no girls run quizzes? Because the guys would never stop hitting on them.?It would be like wolves stampeding toward an injured rabbit.

How do you rate the competition? In answering questions, I give them the edge. In entertaining a crowd, get in line, boys.

How do you rate your chances? Terrible. I'm just here for the free beer.??

Our odds: Worryingly, Jim is under the impression that his weekly "banter" as compere of a local quiz ranks as entertainment. For that alone, we're worried whether he might have a touch of Charlie Sheen Syndrome and start talking about "earthworms entering his immortal octagon" or some such. That said, we quite like Charlie Sheen - but we still feel the need to punish Jim for his unfailingly US-centric quizzing. 14-3

After the quiz we hit up Great Leap Brewery, met up with Zach at Stumble Inn and played pool at Cheers.


And a video!

The first-place team chose to do a chug off to determine the champion. And for the second straight week, that team lost.
