Answers for November 5th Quiz!!!

November 13, 2008

1. Neil Patrick Harris+Bruce Willis+Julia Roberts

The connect is that they played a role as themselves in a movie.

->Bruce Willis and Julia Roberts played themselves in Oceans 12.

->Neil Patrick Harris played himself in Harold and Kumar movie series.

Other people would be Kamal Haasan(Nala Damayanthi), Singer P.Susheela (Don’t remember the name of the movie though 😛 )

2.That is the logo for WIKILEAKS. Its a website which releases secret,sensitive documents and also a lot of Gossips 🙂

3.Almost everyone cracked this one. George W. Bush

4.Serena Williams+Bono

The connect is that their clothing lines are spelled backwards.


Bono-Edun 😉

5.Only Uttara got this right. The person is Manoj Desai. He owns the theatre where the movie Dilwale Dunhiya Le Jayenge is running for more than 500 weeks.

6.A picture of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose without glasses should have been sufficient to crack this one. It is an advertisement for Bausch and Lomb Contact Lenses.

7. Only Sharanyan cracked this question (He didn’t comment on the blog page 😛 ). But a wonderful guess by Yopai

That is Rita Hayworth who was considered the sex bomb of the 40’s. When the United States tested the first atomic bomb, her picture was stuck on the bomb and then tested. (Sex bomb+Atomic bomb. I don’t understand the irony either 🙂 ). The second picture was the logo of the Manhattan Project.

Hence the connect is the Atom Bomb/Nuclear Bomb 🙂

Ciao 🙂

Nov 2nd informal quiz

November 3, 2008

The last informal quiz was hosted by vidyuth, and here’s what he had to say, 😉

“hey all,

quiz was a major success, and i’m one of the happiest ppl right now. i was very surprised, apparently word got around that i was to be the quizmaster and the entire thing was dominated by 4th and 5th standard school kids! (Apparently the way they see him he wears a cape and matching undies outside with the letter Q written on it! You go vidyuth!!)
Apprehension set in, i didn’t know whether they’d be able to get any. ultimately they didn’t, but a few guesses were highly brilliant :). the nicest thing about this episode was that the guys managed to crack each and every q and i had to give out the answers to only like 3, out of 50.
anyway, here’s the ultimate thing which i used for the finals. didn’t have enough time for round 6, so didn’t go thru with it. 
thanks to all those who contributed, sorry that some of you guys couldn’t make it. chal, maybe next time! 🙂
Sadly semesters made me miss it.
So here it is, the e-version of it.
