Once again, Mark proves that ANYTHING can be grilled or smoked to perfection. Pork and Chicken-palooza! Dining at Mark’s, when the grill(s) and smoker are cranked, is what Summer is all about, baby!

Week 5 | March 1, 2012
It was a good night for the Trailer Park Boys! This week Davey, Xavier, Pat, Eileen (Pat’s sister), Mary, Adriene (Mary’s sister), Mark, John M, and John D showed up to play for the TPBs.
The bonus question for round one was “What was called the Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart by it’s builder?” The word “rampart” caused many at the table to start singing the Star Spangled Banner only to realize that they still couldn’t figure out what a rampart was. After some discussion, we decided that it was part of a fort. (A rampart is a defensive wall.) That lead to our best guess, the Berlin Wall. With my uncanny ability to rationalize away right answers, I started down the path of thinking that it couldn’t be the Berlin Wall because that was build after the Nazis were defeated in World War II. So we answered Berlin Wall and wagered no points. We were one of those teams that had the right answer and couldn’t bring themselves to risk even 5 points on it. WAH-WAH
We came back to nail the Fast Action Bonus (FAB) at the end of round one which added 35 points to our score! Pete caught us off guard by putting the answer of the week in a multiple choice question. We thought he was faking us out, sure that Chrometophobia was the fear of color. But it turns to be the fear of money. Excellent dis-tractor, Pete! Another 5 points missed. Pete came back to get us again in the FAB at the end of round 2 by asking what year the Berlin Wall was built (13 August 1961).
We earned 300 more points and came in second for the week! Starting next week we will have the ability to bet all of our accumulated points for the tournament on the final bonus question which could go along way moving us up the leader board.
Here are the standing as of February 29, 2012:
|Driving Bus To Hell||1275|
|Trailer Park Boys||952|
|Fred & Company||482|
|Nancy & Friends||121|
It’s that time of year again! The Frogg Pond’s winter trivia tournament is in full swing. The Trailer Park Boys (Mark P, Pat G, Mary B, John M, Davey K, and John D) started week 5 (of the 16 week tournament) in third place.
This week’s final questions was, “What formula did pharmacist, John S. Pemberton, invent?” Davey wrote Dr. Pepper so fast we were all impressed. Everyone felt very confident and the team decided to bet the farm… all of our 281 points. Unfortunately, the answer was Coca-Cola. Luckily, we get to drop our lowest score.
Come Join Us!
The Trailer Park Boys are always looking for new members to join us on Thursdays at 7pm at the Frogg Pond in Rehoboth Beach, DE. Pete does an amazing job of coming up with the questions and we manage to have a great time whether we win or lose.
Here ya go boys,…get that in ya.
(giggle giggle…CUT! Take Two)

This is more or less of a follow-up to Will’s Reveen poster from Canada. For those who don’t know, there are many references in Trailer Park Boys about Ricky being called Reveen (which the character Ricky HATES. I think parallels the harassment that is given to Julian about looking like Patrick Swayze).
Apparently Reveen is a Canadian Hypnotist/Magician.
The black hole of all information that ignorant people believe for no reason called “wikipedia” has a nice entry for him:
