DAILY TRIVIA # 514 The Three Q-BITyears

Remember, remember the 5th of November. Happy Birthday Q-BIT. This blog has now quenched the quriosities of the junta for 3 whooping years with an average of ~1 daily trivia every 2 days. So, here I have a fiver for the 5th of November.
You may click on the images to have a better view.

1. The movie Delhi Belly featured a song with the following lyrics:
   "Bhaag Bhaag D K Bose,D K Bose,....Aandhi Aayi Hai"
   Though it seemed like using a certain name in its lyrics, it turned into a profane word while singing.
   Which english term describes this condition where you misinterpret a phrase to a totally different
   meaning. Even this term came out of mishearing a particular phrase.

2. Connect.



3. Didn't know earlier that this behemoth corporation also made cars. Identify the logo.
   (The company I am referring to is a minority partner in this car venture).


4. Blame it on the internet, it does not have images of Nylon Nandini,Polyester Padmini and Cotton Kamini.It only has that of Silk Smitha. You get the connect :) So, here is an another connect ques. A tougher one though.



5. This Googler suggested the use of a particular symbol to be used for creating a group discussing something on twitter. What is that?
