: Is that picture the Holy Grail being offered as the prize? I don't mean to sound rude, but any idiot with access to a potters wheel, a hunk of clay and a gold leaf kit can do better.
Dear Belloq (I guess your name is fitting)--
I find it very rude of you to react in such a way. Indy Magnoli has very generously offered to donate this thing, and I'm confused as to why you insult this generousity in such a way.
1.) The "clay" thing, well, IS THE SAME STUFF as the actual film replica is made of. If you'd rather have a false, pretty gold grail, I'd happily hand it to you to drink from.
2.) If you are so wonderful and generous that you could donate a BETTER prize, than that would be a constructive alternative.
3.) The prize is FREE, so it's not like you have to pay anything. All you have to do is PLAY THE GAME. If you do not wish to do this, then don't. But don't whine like a baby and insult others who show the rest of us a little generousity.
4.) If you can do better, than shut up and do it. DO YOUR OWN TRIVIA GAME, rather than blasting others.
I'm "sorry to be rude" -- to use your own words -- but "any idiot" who can write a question or two and spend the time and the efforts can do their own trivia contest if they want.
Look, I like to think I'm a nice guy...but you really made me pissed, so I feel justified in saying, frankly...
...fuck you very much.
