Paul is back in the studio with Ben this week to talk about his passion for the Moops, which is NOT the sound produced by a cow after making a mistake!We’re joking, but if you know “the Moops” reference is from the 47th episode of Seinfeld, “The Bubble Boy,” then you are probably very familiar with this week’s word… and a standout at most parties.To Paul’s delight, the show is liberally peppered with bits of trivia, and there’s a lot to talk about.Along with the aforementioned“knowledge nuggets,” topics discussed include: the board game Trivial Pursuit, the “Jeopardy!” game show and it’s current host drama, dictionary facts and differences, bar and handheld device trivia games, and a brief history of (and a sincere outpouring of love for) Jackbox Games!
