Medical Quizzo Wraps Up Tonight

Dr. Mudd

Tonight is your last chance to play the medical quizzo, so make it happen. Very fun quiz. Action starts at Industry at 6:30 p.m. Missed you guys last week, so let’s get back together tonight and regale ourselves in laughter and cheer.

We wrap up our week at the Bards at 9:15 p.m.

As for the pic above, it’s of Samuel Mudd, an answer to a question earlier this week. When John Wilkes Booth leapt from the booth after shooting Lincoln, he broke his leg. Knowing Dr. Mudd from a meeting the two had had a few months earlier, he and his fellow conspirator David Herold made their way to Mudd’s Maryland farm. Mudd splinted the leg and had his neighbor make a crutch for it. Mudd then waited 24 hours before contacting the authorities, enough time to allow Booth and Herold to get far away.

He was tried as a conspirator, but unlike the others, was not hung. He instead was sentenced to life in prison. But because he had a connected lawyer, he was released four years later. His family tried to have his record expunged in the 20th century, but was denied by Presidents Carter and Reagan, though Reagan did saw that he thought Mudd was innocent of any wrongdoing. There is a myth that the phrase “Your name is mud” comes from Dr. Mudd, but that is not the case; the term has been in circulation since at least 1823.

All New Quiz Tonight

We’re dropping an all new medical quiz tonight. Action starts at Lo Spiedo at 5:30 PM, as Carl B Sure hosts. Going to be an absolutely beautiful evening to quiz outdoors.

I’ll be hosting at the Vous at 6:15 p.m. Tiny crowd last week (It was a pretty slow week all around, I think in part due to Beer Week). This is a great opportunity to get a win.

And we wrap it up at Founding Fathers at 8:30. Hope to see ya tonight!

As for the video above, we had a question last week about “What beer mascot had the real name Honey Tree Evil Eye?” The answer was Spuds McKenzie, and after watching a couple of those old Spuds commercials for the first time in 28 years, I gotta say: they were really freaking stupid. Maybe we’ve just gotten so used to people talking to animals or something, but man, there is just nothing funny or even slightly interesting about those commercials. It seems like the ad guy just had no clue what he was gonna say when he went into the meeting.

“OK, so it’s gonna be like a regular Bud Lite commercial, except instead of a good looking guy that girls like, it’s going to be a, um, a…oh I know! A dog!”

“OK, and then what happens?”

“He, uh, wears an Aloha shirt! And sunglasses! On a dog! Get it?”

“No I don’t. But go on.”

“And, um, he rides on a skateboard. And, like, there’s pretty women saying that he’s a party animal.”

“So what’s the point?”

“Well. That’s a good question. I guess it’s that, you know, if you want to be a dog, you should drink Bud Lite.”

“That doesn’t make any sense.”

“No sir, no it doesn’t.”

“But let’s do it anyway.”

“What, are you serious?”

Medical Quiz Continues with Plenty of Quizzes Tonight

Lots of action on the agenda tonight. We start at the Markets at Comcast at 5:30 p.m. Always a fun BYO quiz. Everyone who plays gets $5 at the market, and there a lot of great food choices.

On to Alla Spina at 8 p.m. with Carl B. Sure. Had a great turnout last week. Let’s do it again. $2 off drafts and deep dish pizza.

I’ll be at O’Neals at 8 p.m. $3.50 margaritas. $50 gift cert for the winners, $100 if they can top 120 points.

Oh, and I included the commercial from last week’s question of the week. Because it truly is amazing.

As far as artists this week, we’ll wrap up with a Philadelphia portrait artist named Thomas Sully. Born in England, he moved to Philly when he was 22 and would remain in Philly until his death at age 89. He painted portraits of many well known military and political figures of his day, including John Quincy Adams and Marquis de Lafayette, and his portrait of Andrew Jackson is the one seen on the $20 bill. Above is his portrait of Thomas Jefferson, which hangs in the Rotunda at UVA.
