Quiz Description

Once again this year I hosted a few rounds of trivia as part of my birthday party. (Those who were in attendance, please recuse yourselves from this quiz, of course!) I've transcribed the questions here in a series of quizzes.

This portion includes two rounds, plus the three tiebreaker questions (that will probably be easy as they were written "buzz in when you know" style):

Where Are Dogs: A round about ge-DOG-raphy!
Plus C’est la Meme Chose: Do you even Internet???

(Fun note... it did come down to a dramatic tiebreaker! Y'ns should come next year!)
