  78. 78. 1. What Phrase? There are plenty of theories for the “__X__ __Y__ ___Z___” being into existence. One such theory has its roots in the Second World War where trucks were often run on petrol when there was a shortage of diesel. Petrol, being highly unstable in nature, would cause the trucks to explode at the slightest accident. Hence a warning would be painted on the back saying “__X__ ___Z___, On Petrol”. Gradually this became a norm and is still seen on most trucks even today. • Another possible explanation is that during the blackout on lights during the Second World War, if a car had to overtake a lorry in the night, it had to honk. For this purpose, there used to be a red light under the truck which the truck driver would switch on to signal that it was __Y__ to overtake. It was the __Y__ in the middle that would light up.

He quickly became a pioneer of industrial food production, aiming to improve the nutritional intake of worker families. X was the first to bring protein-rich legume meals to the market, and followed up with a ready-made soup based on legume meals in 1886. In 1897, Julius X founded the company X GmbH in Singen, Germany where it is still based today. What is X?

  102. 102. 9. X is a series of three American action-comedy films. The films were directed by Jay Roach; produced, written by and starring Mike Myers as both the title character and Dr. Evil; and distributed by New Line Cinema. The franchise parodies numerous James Bond, Derek Flint, Matt Helm, and Jason King, films, characters, and incorporates myriad other elements of popular culture as it follows a British spy's quest to bring his nemesis down. The character represents an archetype of 1960s Swinging London, with his advocacy for free love, his use of obscure impressions and his clothing style. The films poke fun at the outrageous plots, rampant sexual innuendo, and two-dimensional stock characters characteristically associated with 1960s spy films, as well as the cliché of the ultra-suave super spy. Contrary to the handsome, super-smooth leading men of the James Bond genre, X is not conventionally attractive. Give me X.
