We returned to the Friendly Neighborhood confines of your favorite coffee bar/bar that now also serves coffee in the afternoon! The warm and cozy, kitch that houses Trivia Club at Farside! It was our TENTH EDITION of Trivia Club in Chinatown East, and we were joined by familiar faces and surprise guests from our other Wednesday location!

 Trivia Classic  came to a close with a tight back and forth competition between two pairs of Shaym-Aliens going head-to-head, with the ladies of Fart School Confidential, on this night known as My Fart Will Go On, holding a four point lead over the gentlemen of Joldboy! Just a point behind J'Oldboy (maybe a Jamaican remake of the Korean revenge film?) were The Simple Minds! Yes, by chance our two-time Champions from The Ace had found their way to the east-end on an off Wednesday from west-side competition! Rounding out the first round field was the returning Team Ozma in fourth!

 Game Show Games  then gave us the first TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown for Joldboy, while My Fart Will Go On kept things close with an eight point answer! The Simple Minds picked up six points, and Ozma grabbed four points! Then in Survey Says, it was an eight point answer for My Fart Will Go On once again, while The Simple Minds picked up four points, and Joldboy grabbed two points... meaning the top ten was unfortunately missed out on! Combo Breakdown then saw Ozma out first, while the rest of the field went back and forth, and back and forth, before The Simple Minds fell with four points to their name, and My Fart Will Go On outlasted Joldboy for a big SIXTEEN POINT swing as the last women standing!

This meant that heading into  Tri-Pardo , the M. Night Shaym-Alien alumni, My Fart Will Go On, had a strong lead on the field and they had a chance to either keep it even or gain further ground! All teams would gain nineteen points, on the second question rolled by Ozma, while Joldboy, more Shaym-Alien alumni would lose sixteen points on a question they rolled! Gaining an additional six points however on a question that they had rolled were My Fart Will Go On! This meant that heading into the Finale, My Fart Will Go On had only opened up their advantage on the field... they just had to deal with the surprise SPORTS Finale as chosen by The Simple Minds!

It did not trip up any team in the field on this night however, and finishing as runners-up were The Simple Minds! Yes, all the way from The Ace and so nearly winning in a second location! Joldboy would finish the night third, and doubling their total...

With 163 points, and making it a repeat GOLDEN VHS CHAMPIONSHIP for Shelby, and two out of three for Em, of the M. Night Shaym-Aliens... MY FART WILL GO ON! Cue Celine Dion, but backed with fart sounds! Something like this (thanks, internet).
