Word 8: Impertinent

impertinent
(adj.) rude, insolent (Most of your comments are so impertinent that I don’t wish to dignify them with an answer.)
 
QUIZ TIME!
In the film, 300 (mentioned in word 7), King Leonidas famously kicks the Persian Messenger down a well for his impertinence
 
What had the messenger asked King Leonidas to offer to Xerxes, as a token of Sparta's submission?
