In Pursuit of the Trivial

In retrospect, I should have known this was a terrible idea. Vlogs and trivia questions aren't typically a good combination.

But I was so confident I could thoroughly kick LMJ's ass in this competition. I always dominate when I play Pop Culture Trivial Pursuit with my family. I guess this speaks more to the intellectual pop culture capacity (or lack thereof) of the Roecker family rather than my exemplary trivia skills.

Hindsight is a bitch.




Click here to see how LMJ fared. I hope she doesn't completely humiliate me...

Have a great weekend everyone!

Can't wait to watch this! Dumb work computers. Happy Friday.

Nicole Ducleroir said...

That was HILARIOUS! If it makes anyone feel any better, I didn't get any answers right, either. At least Lisa got one... :))

Fun post you guys! Hey, I have a little something for you over at my blog. Check it out :))

Happy weekend!
((hugs)) Nicole

Hahaha! The only one I knew the answer to was Shakespeare in Love. Eeek!

LOL

Lisa, do you realize you said : term the coined

LOL

you and Laura are great!!

Lisa and Laura said...

Oh yeah. You'll notice that there's a pop up about "termed the coin." I am an idiot.

For the record, I technically beat LMJ. Although both of us were so pathetic I think we should probably call it a tie. I'm giving her extra points for her hot eye make up.

Emily J. Griffin said...

This is amazing. I love how serious you were both trying to be...

I'm calling it now-- road trip and The 2010 Trivial Pursuit for Jackholes Challenge. Who's in?

Also, at trivia this week (in a bar, where The 2010 Challenge MUST be held) I heard the two best team names ever...

1. "Helen Keller's favorite color is Chuck Norris." (I don't understand this, but I like it anyway.)

2. "Square roots are like hot girls, if they're under 16 just do 'em in your head." (So wrong, but so right.)

Natalie said...

I'm still laughing. You girls are HILARIOUS.

And Lisa, sweetie, Trivial Pursuit is not your thing. :) But it's not mine either. I only would have gotten one right too.

I want my two dollars.

Melissa said...

Lisa, I particularly enjoyed your phrase "termed the coin" haha this made me laugh so hard. I'd fail this miserably, as well. :)

Katie said...

Oh thank you! I needed this today :-) LOVED seeing your beautiful face and triple love that you brought the equally beautiful MsJ out of hiding!

So fun!

Little Ms J said...

I love you, doll. I was having a freaking anxiety attack that you were going to get them all right and I would look like the only dumb ass in this whole situation. You did beat me, I do concede, but I figured if I stuck a kid next to me I'd at least get a sympathy vote.

I'm wily like that.

Fun times.

Carolyn V. said...

It's okay Lisa, I couldn't figure them out either. (And what's up with Sheryl Crow? I mean...really?)

Anissa said...

Your vlogs rock!

Christine said...

Lisa, you won! I'm impressed--I didn't know a single one of those answers. Congrats!!

And have a great weekend too. :)

Dara said...

Oh how hysterical! I don't know how anyone would know those :P I certainly didn't know any of them!

Christina Lee said...

HA--LARIOUS!!!! I actually knew th 2 live crew one-- I'm badass like that. Of to see LMJ's now!!

Nisa said...

Oh man! If it makes you feel better, you got one more right than I did! (what's pop culture again? Kidding!)

Hardygirl said...

Wow, hon. You look really great, too. Who is doing y'all's makeup?? You and Miss J are ready for HD.

So . . I only knew the $2 one.

At least you won, right??

Gail said...

Man, I don't know who was funnier- you with the mixed up words or J not knowing how old the child really is! Thanks I needed this after hearing my mom has fallen, broken her kneecap AND now, a day later, is in the hospital for passing out and having syncopy (arrythmia). That laugh was definitely needed!!!!

Icy Roses said...

Hahahahaha, I think the comments in the video made it all the better.

I think everyone sucks at Trivial Pursuit, and I'm pretty sure it should actually be renamed the Questionaire Game of Complete Humiliation.

Stephen Tremp said...

Games like this and Taboo and such are better played inebriated.

Jackee said...

"I want my two dollars!"

(You gotta see it. Seriously.)

Kimberley Griffiths Little said...

I've always stunk at trivia. You are not alone in the universe . . . missed you girl the past two weeks while my computer was on the blink. Like, um, DEAD.

Kimberly Derting said...

GENIUS! Not you, of course, the video. But at least you were gorgeous, right???

Marsha Sigman said...

You did suck. But you looked great and you said all those wrong answers with a lot of confidence! That is key when your bullsh*****.lol

And I plan on saying termed the coin a lot...cause that's just funny.

SB said...

okay so i was super psyched to see this as I too consider myself to be a crazy pop culture fanatic. well, i maybe would have got the first question right...if i had about ten minutes to think about it...otherwise -- i too would have been HUMILIATEd...which you both were btw!!!(j) ha ah

Mariah Irvin said...

Heehee. These videos always make me laugh!

The only answer I knew was the Gwyneth Paltrow one... I love "Shakespeare in Love"!

Kimberly Franklin said...

LOL! I didn't know any of those answers. Haha! That vlog was classic!

Larissa said...

You get five extra points for awesome video titlage. Just sayin.

Rhonda said...

This was awesomely fun for a Friday afternoon! :) And you totally won with one right answer!!!

Dawn Simon said...

You got one more correct answer than I did. ;) Also, you're adorable, so that counts for something!

ali said...

ROFL You guys never fail to crack me up :D

Shannon Messenger said...

OMG-I LOVE that when you heard rap you went Vanilla ice. So...when you think Punk, do you think Avril Lavigne?

Totally kidding!

Okay, this is my favorite vlog yet. They just keep getting better and better. :)

Jemi Fraser said...

I'm so relieved to hear I'm not the only one scoring a zero! I stink at pop culture :)

Grey Street Girl said...

Hilarious!!! You guys should definitely do this more often. Those questions were hard though!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Oh, there's just nothing like sibling rivalry. So beautiful! Hahaha! The best part of all were Lisa's facial expressions. And the laughter, omg, totally contagious. Loved it!

Sarah said...

If I call you awesome ONE MORE TIME, I'm going to damage my creative word-maker reputation and you *know* how I value my street cred.

So I'm not going to say it. But you know what you are.

Hilarious. I <3 you!

Krispy said...

It's okay! I didn't know any of those! Something is better than nothing!

T. Anne said...

If it makes you feel better Lisa, I didn't know any of those. But, it was quite entertaining and you have great skin. So! My question is please clue us into your skin care routine and or makeup brands etc... enquiring minds want to know. Happy early Valentines day girls! XOXO

jessjordan said...

1. Love that you called yourself a jackhole.

2. Cuteness to the extreme.

3. What evil person picked such ridonculously hard questions? Geez! Throw in a little Bravo and you would've rocked it!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Let's hear it for multiple choice! This is hilarious. :D

Natalie Murphy said...

LOL! If it makes you feel any better, I didn't know any of the answers... =)

lexcade said...

you guys are so funny. that video made my day. and i didn't know any of the answers, either.

my verification word is flasma. what a weird word...

Lori W. said...

Love when you say to Laura, "You were nodding in an encouraging fashion" even though she knew you had the answer wrong. She's the sister who's got your back and will nod for you no matter what.

Erica said...

So funny Lisa - You totally need to see Better Off Dead - That kid screams "I want my 2 dollars," through the whole movie - it's hilarious, good 80's fun... Laura too, very entertaining

"termed the coin..." LOL Classic.

Those were hard, I may have gotten 2 of them, but that's it.. Love your Vlog's ;o)

Jill Wheeler said...

TWO DOLLLLARS! TWO DOLLLLARS! That's my husband's favorite movie.

You look cute. :D

Kitty Moore said...

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Kitty x

storyqueen said...

Those were hard questions! Dang!

I guess I is an eejit, too.

Suzette Saxton said...

You're so gorgeous! You'll do well on Good Morning America when your book hits the bestseller list.

How I wish Bethany and I lived closer to each other - and to you guys!

peterdewolf said...

That was completely entertaining.

And I would have kicked metric tonnes of ass with those questions.
