Laziness prevents me from posting photos of more of these people. The most famous one is missing. Or is he?

The dude missing is Ian Fleming.

Rithwik, Manu Sathian, Freestyler, Anonymous, vinayak007, abhijeet, Rajith, Vijaynath and Balakrishnan all avoided embarrassment. Those of you who gave it a miss will find the comments section an interesting read.

Pioneering couple. Though not quite willingly.

Quoting  Rithwik ,

“Frederick Douglass and Victoria Woodhull

In 1872, Douglass became the first African American nominated for Vice President of the United States  as Victoria Woodhull’s running mate on the Equal Rights Party ticket and she was the first ever woman US POTUS candidate”

Rithwik  was  the  only  one  to  crack  this  one . Great  job  kiddo !

Bad quizmasters and a few memorable fluid encounters prevented us from posting questions. Apologies and two questions as compensation.

Dedicated to all the quizzers who are happily unaware of the location of General Hospital, Calicut.

How do we better know the most famous of this bloodline?


The painting portrays the Greek Gods Vulcan and Maia. We get the name of the month May from the latter. The second picture is of course that of Big Ben. The most famous couples named May and Ben are Aunt May and Uncle Ben. The most famous of their bloodline would be Peter Parker, a.k.a Spiderman 🙂 (or as patriots might want to call him, Pavitra Prabhakar)

Uncracked.

With apologies for the late posting, what’s the joke daa?

Copy-pasting from Appu who copy-pasted from a reliable source:

“The award Latraviata is receiving parodies the César Award given by the French Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinema. The first César Award for Best Actress was given to Romy Schneider (who resembles Latraviata) in 1976.”

Appu, Rithwik, Shrey Goyal, Anagh, Comfortably and Technically dumb, Puzzleshooter and the young man who used to be a regular at Thrissur’s most famous theatre before it was renovated, Anil Raghavan, gets it right.
