Seeing how this is the first “Summer Friday” of the season, I thought it’d be fun to do something light and entertaining, and reach back into my archives and pull out the funniest trivia team names I’ve encountered over the years. Having produced nearly 350 public and private trivia parties in NYC and elsewhere, one of my biggest guilty pleasures is seeing how creative and funny teams can be when coming up with names. I’ve encountered many, many fantastic team names over the years. Be they timely, inside jokes or more “evergreen” in nature, the most amusing ones have always stayed with me, and give me a chuckle whenever I think about them.
Here are 25 of the best ones for your enjoyment, in no particular order. Please note, some of these may be considered a bit risqué, controversial or borderline inappropriate, inching more towards Rated R than PG-13…however, they’re all really funny. I think you can handle it:
1 ) Rehab is for Quitters
2 ) The Jackson 4
3 ) Fat People are Harder to Kidnap
4 ) Chilean Miners of Knowledge
5 ) Charlie Sheen’s Phrenologists
6 ) That’s Enough, John Mayer
7 ) How is Hosting Trivia a Real Job?
8 ) John McCain VP Selection Committee
9 ) We’re Only Here for the Free Water
10 ) Dick Cheney Death Watch
11 ) Bitch, Give Me My Kidney Back!
12 ) We’re Missing “Glee” for THIS?
13 ) The Team Next to Us Is Cheating
14 ) Mubarak is in Denial
15 ) She’s Gone from Suck to Blow
