Question 271

X cans because of their shape, have been used to make Wi-Fi network antennas, known as cantennas.These cans can also be use to make "cannons," or, "poppers," by putting a round hole in the bottom end of the can and blowing hard a loud popping sound will be made as the lid flies off. When filled with little bits of paper it shoots out confetti.The popular newspaper comic Dilbert references a use for the X can. Dilbert rolls up his clothing in a X tube so he can change clothes at work without having to drive home and change clothes.X containers can also be used to hold up to three tennis balls. This similarity of shape was the subject of a joke by Mitch Hedberg, who speculated that tennis balls were what X had originally intended to make.

Question 266

X came into existence in 1872 in Switzerland, when Julius X took over his father's mill. It quickly became a pioneer of industrial food production, aiming at the improvement of the nutrition of worker families. It was the first to bring protein-rich legume meal to the market, which was followed by ready-made soup based on legume meal in 1886. In 1897, Julius X founded the company X GmbH in the German town of Singen where it is still established today.In parts of Europe, including German-speaking countries as well as the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and France, "X" is still synonymous with the brand's "X-W├╝rze" (X spice), a dark sauce which is very similar to East Asian soy sauce without actually containing soy. It was also introduced in 1886, as a cheap substitute for meat extract. It has since become a well-known part of everyday culinary culture in Switzerland, Austria and especially in Germany.The bouillon cube or 'X cube' was introduced in 1908, which was another meat substitution product.Because chicken and beef broths are so common in the cuisines of many different countries, the company's products have a large worldwide market. Today X is particularly well known in New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, Pakistan, India, Malaysia and Singapore

The character of X was first developed when Y was studying for his MSc at Oxford University. A sketch featuring the character was being performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in the early 1980s. A similar character called Robert Box, played by Y, appeared in the one-off 1979 ITV sitcom "Canned Laughter" .In 1987, one of X's earliest appearances occurred at the Just For Laughs Montreal Canada.

Having no French dialogue in his act at all, program co-ordinators could not understand why Y wanted to perform on the French bill. As it turned out, Y's act at the festival was a test platform for the X and Y wanted to see how the ____ character's physical comedy would fare on an international stage with a non-English speaking audience. The name of the character was not decided after the first programme had been produced, with a number of other _________-influenced names, such as "__________", being explored.
