Trivia Team Finds Fault with Friends

Trivia Team Finds Fault with Friends

A trivia team’s refusal to accept the results of the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library‘s Trivia Contest last year may jeopardize this year’s event on April 4. The dispute began with the tie-breaking question, “Who was the first man on the moon?” The winning team answered Neil Armstrong. The losing team protested, stating there was no correct answer because no one has ever landed on the Moon. “Everyone knows the Moon landing was faked. NASA knew it was impossible, so they hired Stanley Kubrick to make it look good,” said Trivia Loser and Head of Reference Liam Hegarty. “The entire outcome of the contest is predicated upon a lie! That’s why I filed for the restraining order.”

Friends President Melissa Prevost sighed. “Trivia night is just supposed to be a fun get together for people who love libraries or just for people who love trivia. We just randomly took questions and answers from the Trivial Pursuit game. Who knew it would end up with harsh words, tears and lawsuits?”

Prevost said the Friends has done all it can to resolve the situation in time for the scheduled April 4th event. “First we tried to persuade him, using reputable sources, that the landing was not faked. Then we  offered to redo the last question. We’ve offered to declare the contest a tie. Heck, we’ve even offered to declare his team the winner if he would just drop the court case, but that was not good enough. Nothing short of the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library officially declaring that no one has ever landed on the Moon will ever satisfy him and that is something I will not do.”

Hegarty’s teammate, Celeste Sharpe, has disavowed Hegarty’s actions. “At first I tried to remain neutral in the whole thing because I thought he was kidding, that I should be loyal to my teammate, and, truth be told, I always wanted to win the Friends Trivia Contest.” The lawsuit was the final straw, Sharpe said. She has spoken to Hegarty several times since then “but he won’t be moved. Invincible ignorance, I guess.”

“The more people try to change my mind, the more convinced I am that I’m right,” Hegarty said.
