The Rules

Welcome to Exquizite Quizine, a quizzing blog, whose weird set of questions and irregularity of updation are but a reflection of similar qualities in it's creator. Welcome to this blog an good luck in answering the questions which feature here, and you're welcome to post answers as comments. Just make sure that if you're answering questions then encrypt them in any ingenious fashion which ensures that others don't end up accidentally reading them. One suggestion is ROT13[W]

Cheerio and as the notice on some other less well known place says, Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter.

[3] Curiouser and Curiouser

The third set, in this series of quizzes: (OT: By the way I just found out that one of Blogger's nifty services is that it automatically publishes an RSS feed at http://exquizite-quizine.blogspot.com/atom.xml, so you can subscribe for updates easily.



  • Q1: On 26 June 1963 in West Berlin, he made a speech containing the sentence:
    ``Two thousand years ago the proudest boast was `civis Romanus sum'. Today, in the world of freedom, the proudest boast is 'Ich bin ein Berliner.' . . . as a free man, I take pride in the words 'Ich bin ein Berliner.' ''
    Who said this?


  • Q2: A fairly easy one: This movie was based partially on parts of Swift's Gulliver's Travels, and derives it's name from the the same source. However the filmmaker probably didn't realise how scathing a satirist Swift could be and the fact that he(Swift) meant
    this tale to be alegoric of certain contemporary happenings. As a result the movie's name had to be slightly modified slightly(they actually replaced the movie with just it's tagline) before release in some countries, viz. France, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. What is the funda?


  • Q3: A visual. How many(Edit.) which of these languages can you identify in this chevron ad?



That's all for now folks,
