  8. 8. This band started largely as a joke as Wilson was preoccupied with his other project, No-Man. Wilson created an 80-minute-long cassette titled Tarquin&apos;s Seaweed Farm under the name of __________. Still showing the spirit of his joke, Wilson included an 8-page inlay containing information about fictitious band members such as Sir TarquinUnderspoon and Timothy Tadpole-Jones. He fabricated details such as band members, album titles, and a back-story, that purportedly included events such as a meeting at a &apos;70s rock festival and several trips in and out of prisons. Also the band drew heavily from the psychedelic rock band of the seventies including Pink Floyd<br />

  12. 12. Evidence of the consumption of X can be found as far back as the 3rd millennium B.C., as indicated by charred seeds of X found in a ritual brazier at an ancient burial site in present day Romania. The most famous users of X were the ancient Hindus of India and Nepal.<br />Some scholar claims that X was used by religiously by Jews probably due to similarity of X with Hebrew phrase &quot;qenébósem&quot; (&quot;aromatic cane&quot;). It was used by Muslims in various Sufi orders as early as the Mamluk period, for example by the Qalandarsthe consumption of which probably was the cause of their frenzied singing.<br />
  13. 13. The ubiquitous ‘G’<br />
  14. 14. Originally the Aztecs called this fruit ahucatl after their word for testicle. This is may be partly due to the fruit&apos;s resemblance to a testicle, but also because it was supposedly believed to be an aphrodisiac. These fruits are sometimes also called Alligator pears.The etymology of this is far more obvious; the skin of these fruits is dark green, thick, leathery, and knobbly, rather like that of an alligator.<br />

  16. 16. Bill and I created _________. Bill was the writer. That&apos;s the way I sum it up. __________ looks like Conrad Veidt — you know, the actor in The Man Who Laughs, [the 1928 movie based on the novel] by Victor Hugo. Bill had a book with a photograph of Conrad Veidt and showed it to me and said, &apos;Here&apos;s _________&apos;. Jerry Robinson had absolutely nothing to do with it, but he&apos;ll always say he created it till he dies.<br />Fill in the blank. What was Jerry Robinson&apos;s contribution?<br />
  17. 17. The joker<br />Jerry Robinson brought the trademark playing card of the joker<br />
  18. 18. Since X&apos;s parents were more or less strangers to him for the first few years of his life, his grandparents influenced his early development very strongly. His grandfather, whom he called &quot;Papalelo&quot;, was a Liberal veteran of the Thousand Days War. X&apos;s political and ideological views were shaped by his grandfather&apos;s stories.<br />&quot;My political ideas probably came from him to begin with because, instead of telling me fairy tales when I was young, he would regale me with horrifying accounts of the last civil war that free-thinkers and anti-clerics waged against the Conservative government.“<br />Due to his newfound fame and his outspoken views on U.S. imperialism he was labeled as a subversive and for many years was denied visas by U.S. immigration authorities. However, after Bill Clinton was elected U.S. president, he finally lifted the travel ban and claimed that Y was his favorite novel. There is a street in East Los Angeles, CA bearing his name. Identify X and Y.<br />
  19. 19. Gabriel Garcia Marquez<br />One Hundred Years of Solitude<br />
  20. 20. To qualify for the Forbes Fictional 15 list, members must be &quot;both fictional (in the sense that excludes mythological and folkloric figures) and characters (meaning they are part of a narrative story or series of stories).&quot; And of course, rich. The one exception to the rule was X, a mythological character, whom Forbes decided was an &quot;irresistible&quot; addition. Although, beginning in 2007, he is absent from the current list. Forbes stated, &quot;We still estimate X&apos;s net worth as infinite, but we excluded him from this year&apos;s rankings after being bombarded by letters insisting that X is &quot;real.&quot; We don&apos;t claim to have settled the ongoing controversy concerning X&apos;s existence, but after taking into account the physical evidence we felt it was safer to remove him from consideration.&quot; Identify X.<br />
