The BITS-PILANI QUIZZING FORUM!

Some more

1. X is one of the most notorious unfinished movies, it starred Y along with many other stars from the era. Y had, at the time, recently undergone gallbladder surgery, and had dropped over 25 pounds, reaching the lowest weight of Y's adult life. The costume and hairstyle drawings depicted a new Y, much more sophisticated and stylish than any character depicted previously. Several years later another movie with the same name (well almost, technically) was made.


2. A-B usually consist of recurring characters in a common environment such as a home or workplace. The situation is usually that of a family, workplace, or a group of friends. The term was adopted to distinguish the C(short form for A-B) from other formats such as sketch comedy or humorous monologues/dialogues.

3. Who are required to sign that they "acknowledge and affirm" the following?

  1. My job duties require I wear the designated _________ uniform.
  2. My job duties require that I interact with and entertain the customers.
  3. The _________ concept is based on female sex appeal and the work environment is one in which joking and sexual innuendo based on female sex appeal is commonplace.
  4. I do not find my job duties, uniform requirements, or work environment to be offensive, intimidating, hostile, or unwelcome.

4.
Please don't google this one.
Before the sensation that was Nadia Comeneci, there was another Y, from Belarus who stunned everyone in the 1972 Olympics with her flexibility(won three golds).
President Nixon, upon meeting her at the White House, told her: "I have always been impressed with your ability to land on your feet.” Name Y

5. X Y Z was an all girl band active between 1990-1997. The name was derived by altering the name of a famous Monroe movie. The band came up with three albums, the second one being a tribute to their guitarist(who had died of a drug overdose) and a close pal, who was brutally rape and murdered.

Answer time:
