Well what do you know, I managed to find some questions after all.
1. X is a character created by Charles Dickens in his novel David Copperfield. The character is notable for his humility, servility, and insincerity. His name has become synonymous with being a yes man. He is the central antagonist of the later part of the book.
Much of David Copperfield is autobiographical and scholars believe X's mannerisms and physical attributes to be based on Hans Christian Andersen whom Dickens met shortly before writing the novel.
A British band is named after the character, in fact their debut album (Very 'eavy... Very 'umble) references the character's signature phrase. X?
2. Identify the guy on the right, and what is he describing?
