Take on Bar Trivia with "Geeks Who Drink Presents: Duh!"

By Danielle Wirsansky on September 21, 2019

Every college student has done it. Spent a night with their friends, a couple of beers in hand, as you jeered on other teams in the bar, booing and cheering collectively as your team loses or wins a round: Bar Trivia.

Love it or hate it, it is a staple of college-based entertainment. So if bar trivia is really your jam or if you are incredibly competitive (or maybe you are both), then the newly released book Geeks Who Drink Presents: Duh!: 100 Bar Trivia Questions You Should Know (And the Unexpected Stories Behind the Answers), might be the book for you, according to a recent press release!

Author Christopher D. Short, chief editor of Geeks Who Drink, says: “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? 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.”

The book does not just give you trivia to memorize—it helps you understand the structure of trivia questions so you can see through their tricky wording and get the answer right.

And what makes Short such a trivia expert? As the chief editor of Geeks Who Drink since 2010, Christopher D. Short was already a trivia expert. But this expert title was set in stone when in 2011, Short became the fourteenth-ever six-time champion on Jeopardy (though apparently, he is still the one who earned the least money). You can’t really argue with a six-time Jeopardy Champion, right?

Geeks Who Drink Presents: Duh! Is now available now wherever books are sold and you can learn more about the book at http://bit.ly/GWDPresentsDuh.
