Trivia Q&A: January 14

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
It was a rainy Tuesday night in New York and we had a small, but enthusiastic turnout for Trivia.  The guys from DIMS pulled away by the third round, getting a perfect score in the Q Train lightning round and went on to an comfortable victory, rolling up 52 points. Congratulations to Ken and Darek on their first win of the decade.
Second place went to This Pitcher Smells Like Gwyneth Paltrow's Vagina (who also won for Best Team Name; yes, I had to say that name all night long!) with 29 points and third place went to Harry Potter's 9" Wand with 22 points.
