Today’s question comes from Jayakanthan, a seemingly unstoppable cyborg answering machine that has been sent back in time from the year 2149 by earth-controlling alien powers to exterminate the quizzing race. Some say that it doesn’t sleep, and prowls the web at night, e-arresting online quiz enthusiasts and looking for obscure Ukrainian movies to download and ask questions about. It wanted to ask this question in the prelims when it did the QFI Grandmaster quiz last year, but apparently ditched it because it was too vague and difficult. The qualifying cut-off then was 5/31. So good luck.
What slang term originated from these two entities? And what does it mean?
The slang term we were looking for was ‘Goach’, which refers to a cheap knock-off of a designer handbag, which comes from a combination of the famous brand names ‘Gucci’ and ‘Coach’, whose logos (the ‘GG’ and the ‘C’) were clearly visible in the question visuals.
