Bust out your monacle, twirl up that 'stache, and stroke your reaky hairless cat because it's time to get evil. This week, we're headed to our secret island lair to celebrate trivia about villains. Where did the word come from? And we all know that the butler did it, but who was the first butler to actually do it? Colin discovers the real Goldfinger behind James Bond lore, and Dana makes us do impressions for her villain catchphrase quiz. Karen keeps the bat at bay with a quiz about ridiculous Batman villains.
ALSO: E.L.V.I.S. is back!, Lobetrotter trivia

We all made quizzes that are a little wackier and more off-the-beaten path this week! Colin hosts a round of "BRAD PITT.....OR LASERS?!" and quizzes us on famous things named after a who, a what, or a where. Dana treats us to some dangerously tasting traditional candy from Sweden while we try to guess the flavor. Karen invites everyone to explore American regional dialects with a vocab test, and Chris came up with questions about strange airline facts while on an airplane. ALSO: Karen tells the classic tale, "How My Mom Got Punched in the Face."

Orange you glad we're back for more in 2014? We put fruit facts into the limelight this week and cherry-picked some pretty juicy trivia. Colin gets to the core of fruit name origins, Chris grapples with a hybrid fruit challenge, and Karen puckers up to the miracle fruit. And don't just split yet, Dana's got an a-peeling quiz about bananas. It's a fruit party, so we're all raisin the roof.
