Then this is a beverage that has a key ingredient you want us to guess. Tequila

You are correct, Andy, it is a beverage, but it is not tequila. It's a drink indigenous to the Yucatan, made of honey and herbs. Restaurant owners will send you a shot to show appreciation after you've eaten at their establishment.

You're next!

Why are these two emblems different? Which came first and why did it change.

Well I don't see any difference... aside from the color.

red was the first logo for rolls royce. it changed to black in the mid-30's when the owner, royce, died.

when i was a kid i got to valet park a phantom and a few silver shadows. i remember the seat and the controls were really uncomfortable and awkward, and when i commented on it to some car people, they laughed and said if you owned one you didn't do the driving.

That's it, BT.

Actually, the majority of RR owners drive their own cars. I guess it's a case of affording a chauffeur OR a RR but not both.

That's some pretty nifty trivia to have stuck in the memory banks. I wonder if anyone else's logos have changed for similar reasons, or broken partnerships.

Yeah, I'm full of them.

Bringing one up that would work here is sometimes hard. Someone tells you you've given the right answer and now you have to think of trivia question. Quick! Think of something. No, not that, no one will know that but you. C'mon, cars, food, sports, THINK OF SOMETHING!

As long as it's not Scooby Doo!

Here's a personal one for you, Andy. I just heard this yesterday.
Yesterday, Sept 23, 2011, was the ten year anniversary for what?
