As Jim Gray would say in 2010, “KVSC got a whole lotta Posse”. Eleven Posse members made the trip this year to St. Cloud to assist in the Posse’s stated role of staffing the Challenge Line for “all 50 hours of the contest”. New in the flock this year were Slider, son of Digital Dave and nephew of Fast Eddie, and Coco, formerly the leader of a Wisconsin based trivia team “Cowbell Trivia”. The large crew was needed to make sure nary a call was missed, produce an ambitious list of original productions, and record the Posse’s first infomercial.
Much to the chagrin of Captain F., this year’s original productions were heavy on the fart jokes. (More…)
- 2010 – Intro – “Trivia in 3-D”
It was a frustrating theme that greeted the Posse when it was announced in the summer of 2009. A largely visual theme that would challenge the Posse to employ audio techniques to simulate audio depth. The trickery would be minor as the main producers (Capt F., Phal, and Coco) went with tried and true theme communication though the use of savvy clip selection.Continue reading →
- 2010 – Intro – “Trivia in 3-D” (Air-check version)
- YIR: Trivia 3-D – Look in the Mirror
As is appropriate when a large group of people take a journey together, we all must take a moment to reflect. This year the Posse was very organized and dutifully logged all clips that could easily have been taken out of context. Hat-tip to Coco, Slider, Wildman, and Mr. Choo Choo; the look in the mirror was edited without any substantive input from Captain F., who was off doing TV, which is explained elsewhere on this page. With both challenges and some very clever original productions included the Posse reflected on the weekend’s effort and really liked what they saw/heard.Continue reading →

- Challenge: Romulus Can’t Reamus vs. Eggo – Pt. Deux
- Challenge: NMZ Scavenger Hunt
Team NMZ calls the late night crew of Princess Yum-Yum and Digital Dave to present possibly the most well-prepared and well thought out challenge of the year: a photo scavenger hunt that required some trivial knowledge/research of St. Cloud landmarks to complete. Of course, DD struggles to make a joke, resulting in the year’s only “crickets”.
Regrettably, this was take two of this challenge presentation. Captain F. managed to erase the first recording. FAIL!Continue reading →

- Challenge: DOA Hole – Automated Telemarketing Call
With few calls coming in to the Challenge Line, the Goat Posse formulate a plan to utilize a telemarketing-like message, expertly voiced by Fluffer, to haras…er….contact teams, hoping to perpetuate challenges. We had some limited success, including this challenge by “DOA Hole” to Trivia icon, Gary Z.Continue reading →
- Challenge: Poppins’ First Challenge!
- Challenge: Snow Fort – Response
- Challenge: Arm Wrestling
- Challenge: Hamburgler
- Challenge: Song Writing
When calling the Challenge Line the first thing you should do is offer your team name. The protocol is similar to calling the phone bank, in which you offer your team number. Regardless, some team called in proposing a parody song writing contest utilizing as many ‘D’ words as possible. Sadly, no one answers this inventive call.
I suspect this happend because he didn’t follow protocol.Continue reading →

“Harry’s House of Sheep” was written by Fast Eddie with help from his friend Rose and his brother Digital Dave. Believe it or not, HHOS was inspired by a late night chat room conversation that got out of hand.
Slider, DD’s 16 year old son, did most of the production work, and the piece was expertly voiced by J-Mont!Continue reading →
- Fast Eddie for President
- Can of Ass
- Can of Ass – 10 Second Spots
- Can of Ass – 20 & 30 Second Spots
- Can of Ass – LIVE!
COA was so well received by the volunteers of Trivia, the GP was asked to do an infomercial to promote it even further. Thanks, Skip! The script was hastily written and was intended for two people so that Skip Marks (the pitchman) had someone to talk to. The first live airing was done with two people on the Sunday afternoon of Trivia. UTVS wanted to do a second live airing in the hour between the end of the contest at 7 p.m. and the awards ceremony but Skip’s side-kick couldn’t stay.Continue reading →
- Goat Posse Flash Mob…well, sort of…
A last minute idea conceived in the drunken stupor that lack of sleep can cause, this is the Posse’s attempt at a Flash Mob. Thanks to UTVS for making this look even better on film than it did in person, and to Princess Buttercup and Fluffer who managed to teach a choreographed dance to uncoordinated mid-westerners.Continue reading →
