A11. Monet X Change
Q12. Who is X?
The recent release Crew features some not-so-subtle references

apparent.
A12. Vijay Mallya

On a recent podcast, Hank Green rewrites the record on behalf of
his brother pertaining to a long running internet myth. The story
that the viral 2015 post apparently attributed to his brother
brought about the site-wide change in this popular blogging
platform was false. In fact it was just an intuitive change to make
as the site had a very apparently broken feature that needed to
be modified.
A15. Tumblr; Removing the ability to edit other people’s posts
*Q16. What is special about this umbrella?
On their album Nayaab, rap-duo Seedhe Maut

crowd because of his attire and her love of said book.
A18. Where’s Waldo/Wally
Q19. Who is Caballero compared to?
Pedro Almodóvar Caballero is a Spanish film director and
screenwriter, hailing from a central-southern region of the
country called La Mancha. His humble origins, as a member of a
large and impoverished family of peasant stock, have left their
indelible mark on his work.
Through his films, he has become a representative icon of a Spain
that emerged after the repression of Franco’s dictatorship had
ended. Interestingly, his last name Caballero literally translates
to “knight”. Keen fans have often drawn parallels between his
life and that of another entity central to the Spanish identity.
A19. Don Quixote
*Q20. FITB and who is the singer?
Following what seems to be an age old path for success, this
musician started his journey in a band called ____ ____ (4, 5)
