Tricky Trivia

NPR's comedy quiz show Ask Me Another is usually recorded live in Brooklyn, but a recent podcast announced a visit to the city by the bay. It also featured an hour's worth of trivia, with games that mashed up the names of literary works and comic strips (sample answer: Garfield of Dreams), and a visit from Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert. She was asked to play a game with the same title as her famous book. Host Ophira Eisenberg gave a word that was either a deity, a food, or a person, and Gilbert would guess which, answering back with "eat," "pray," or "love." It may sound easy, but it wasn't. The crew at Ask Me Another knows how to stump even ardent trivia fanatics — two of the show's contestants were trivia team captains. If any of San Francisco's trivia captains want to try their mind on Ask Me Another, this could be their chance; the podcast put a call out for Bay Area contestants. Potential candidates should e-mail askmeanother@npr.org and include "SF" in their subject line.
