  20. 20. Q 9: Catherine RosalieGerard Duthé (1748–1830) was acelebrated French courtesan.● A companion of French kingsand European nobility, she hasbeen called “the first officiallyrecorded ___ ____”.● Duthé was an often requestedsubject for portraits, includingpartial and full nudes, many ofwhich still exist in museums andprivate collections.
  21. 21. Dumb blonde• In Parisian society Duthé developed a certain "reputation by adopting the habit of pausing for extended periods of time before speaking.“ She appeared not only stupid, but dumb in the literal sense. This inspired a one-act satire about her called Les Curiosités de la Foire (Paris 1775) that "kept Paris laughing for weeks.“ Although the origin of the stereotype of the dumb blonde is not entirely clear, cultural historian Joanna Pitman has noted that “Rosalie Duthé acquired the dubious honour of becoming the first officially recorded dumb blonde.”
  22. 22. Q10:"X is A seven-stringed harp", as referenced by Will Cuppy in the first chapterabout the Pharaoh Cheops or Khufu, in his book "The Decline and Fall ofPractically Everybody." Dorset Press, New York, 1950. Cuppy was most certainlykidding, since the book was a satire, but it is important to know that thefabrication of the term preceded its most common usage as a catchy phrase toaccompany your clever pranks.X is thought to be derived from ____ which means, informally, to criticize orridicule someone and formally, to suggest energy, zest, or verve.Another theory is that the word is a direct or derived Klingon term.This word can be used in place of such words and phrases such as Your mom, Inyour face, Face, and the That 70s Show word - Burn.Identify X.
