Not for googlers...


1. Identify the currency and the funda behind it.. Which organisation n all that

2. While nobody seems to know the phrase's exact origin, Mavens' Word of the Day offers an interesting theory. In the late 1800s when a X broke, the remaining one was often used to bundle items. This thrifty gesture may have contributed to the phrase's meaning and popularity.Identify X

3. It is often claimed that the term originally referred to a law that limited the maximum thickness of a stick with which it was permissible for a man to beat his wife, but this has been fully discredited.( but what the heck.. still take a shot.. )
