L-l-l-l-last n-n-n-n-night's q-q-q-questions

Despite the cold, the pub quiz faithful were out in force last night. Before we get to the rounds, please make a note that there will not be a quiz on Tuesday, January 3rd, as the staff of the Globe will be having their holiday party. And I apologize for the round titles all being SNL skits. I'm still not completely sure where that came from.
