Here’s How to Actually Learn Something While Playing Pub Trivia

A new book unlocks the key info all bar trivia players need.

It’s kind of like eating a whole plate of wings and telling yourself that they are not that bad because you also ate a whole plate of celery. But what if there was a way to retain some of that info you are exposed to at those bar trivia nights?

That thought crossed our mind when we came across a recent press release pointed out that author Christopher D. Short — a six time Jeopardy! champ — has a new book that focuses on exactly that.

Geeks Who Drink Presents: Duh!: 100 Bar Trivia Questions You Should Know (And the Unexpected Stories Behind the Answers) features 100 hilarious trivia questions and informative essays that break down all the answers.

“I guess your professors are smart and all, but are they going to teach you about that time Miley Cyrus’ real dad had to audition to play her TV dad?” Short asks. “Don’t worry! Geeks Who Drink Presents: Duh! is full of inessential facts like that. And if you happen to hustle your local pub quiz with this new knowledge, it’s a win for everyone! Except the other teams you beat, of course.”

Sounds like a win-win. And maybe you even get your bar tab paid up in the process, you never know. Geeks Who Drink Presents: Duh! is available now wherever books are sold. Learn more about the book here.
