Welcome to the Pigpen!
You've found the online home to the "Learned Pigs and Fireproof
Women." We're a St.
Cloud, Minnesota-based trivia team playing for our 21st year in KVSC-FM's annual Trivia Weekend.
And to celebrate becoming legal, we're going to do our level best to tie the great
Hall of Fame inductees, GDI, with a fifth KVSC tournament win -- knock on wood.
Play With Us! We'd love if you'd join us! if you've ever wanted to play KVSC Trivia, here's your chance. Just e-mail us and we'll get you all the details. Not going to be in St. Cloud? No problem! You can play from anywhere on the planet as long as you have an internet connection. We'll show you how!
How did we get our name? It's from the Ricky Jay book on circus freaks and human oddities, "Learned Pigs and Fireproof Women." Considering our first name was "Cactus Jack's Dit not Wops",we consider this to be a big improvement.
We've done pretty well over the years. This is our 21st year playing as a team -- our 20th as "LP&FW." We started pretty slow, but with lots of hard work and preparation, we've become a better team.
We come from all over the
country for trivia. We started as a group of SCSU students and friends who
got together with a hundred or so books and a telephone. But as we started getting
older and moving on, the team spread out across the country. We don't get everyone
home for trivia every year, but with technology as it is these days, folks can still play
from far away!
Good luck to all teams and we'll see you
