"There's just no stopping in a white zone!" "Oh, really, Vernon? Why pretend, we both know perfectly well what this is about. You want me to have an abortion!" That whole exchange really should not be as hilarious as it is.

While horse is maybe not the first meat to be put in meatballs, it's common to eat horsemeat in at least both Sweden and Finland and most probably other European countries as well. So having it in them isn't wrong at all. Not listing it as ingredients on the other hand is very wrong. - I am not familiar with the story, so I don't know what caused outrage.

It's more the fact that they were not advertised as containing horse, and a lot of people in the UK object to eating horse (just because they're not really seen as an animal many people eat here.) Personally I wouldn't mind eating horse, but if they're sneaking it in it's unlikely to be decent quality horsemeat, which is what worried me more - it's likely to be poor meat they're using to make their product cheaper.

North Americans generally don't eat horsemeat. I don't know why -- it does taste good. The horrified looks my coworkers give me when I say this is amusing.

Aren't all bees not queens called drones? I nearly didn't get it because I was trying to think of some special name just for male bees.

No, I'm afraid it's true, drones are those few male bees who mate with the queen. The others are worker bees. "Drones" meaning zombie-like "worker bees" in the work place is a misapplied idiom.

Worker bees only put up with lazy drones until cool weather, in case something happens to the queen and they are needed for a replacement. When the weather turns cold worker bees literally drag them out of the hive. Any drone "lucky" enough to mate with a queen during her maiden flight also dies, because her anatomy causes his organ to be ripped out of his body and he falls to the ground dead.

I'm sure she doesn't still live there - they're from completely different socio-economic backgrounds, they would run out of things to talk about almost immediately.

And he is incredibly impulsive and probably mentally handicapped - supposedly falls in love with her at first site but can only find her by her shoe size (which fell off her foot so obviously isn't the best fit anyway), because god forbid he remember what her face looks like.

Nah, there's no way they'd last past the first weekend.

legato is a musical expression note for a whole entire part, while staccato is a type of accent for a particular and individual note, therefore making them not polar opposites. The *exact* opposite of staccato is tenuto, because both refer to individual notes. Otherwise, great quiz!
