Humor Beats Brains

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s better to be funny than to be smart.

At least that’s the case at the What’s Your Answer? trivia night happening at Chez Poulet in San Francisco tomorrow (Aug. 26), where players put the smart in smartass by coming up with the funniest answers rather than the correct ones.

Rick Abruzzo says his experiences at pub trivia nights surrounded by know-it-alls and tough questions made him want to create his own event where “having the right answer is not actually helpful.”

Teams have one minute to come up with the best joke for each trivia question, then send a member to deliver their line. A team of judges rate the funniest of the quips, and in the end the winning team gets, well, nothing.

Abruzzo explains, “The experience is the prize. You get to have fun with friends and tell jokes.”
