Seeing emm posting 2 in a row, I'll post another one:
Pensioners
Gunners
Devils

Fill in the 4th line...

Still baffled in both from emm... In my mind they're much harder than mine...

About the olympic rings...

According to most accounts, the rings were adopted by Baron Pierre de Coubertin (founder of the modern Olympic Movement) in 1913 after he saw a similar design on an artifact from ancient Greece. The five rings represent the five major regions of the world: Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. Every national flag in the world includes at least one of the five colors, which are (from left to right) blue, yellow, black, green, and red. It is important to emphasize that Pierre de Coubertin never said nor wrote that the colors of the rings were linked with the different continents

Not sure what the 4th line is, but Chelsea played Arsenal for the Community shield at the Millennium stadium Cardiff.

1. "The Golden Boy" was not a Queen song... It's from an 1988 album by Freddie Mercury (going solo) and opera singer Montserrat Caballé. At that time Freddie was already ill with AIDS... That album makes me think of Katherine Jenkins...

2. So "= and ii" means "red lips and green eyes"... Too clever... How about "flea"... Was thinking along the lines of "redhead flea" or "redhead bug"... But probably wrong... Don't suppose it's "red flea", as in that case the whole flea should be red...

3. Ruud probably got my first one...

4. MCC, Devils=Cardiff:?: You're probably joking...

5. emm, Gunners is not right... No duplication in my list... I guess you probably want to mention them once more because of their disappointing loss to Barca...:) And Arsenals ain't right either...

Echidnophaga myrmecobii

Common Name: red flea

There is also Flea, the bass player of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. A band name with 4 words, starts with Red. His real name is Michael Balzary.

If this is not the answer, I wil never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever try to solve an emm riddle again.

B*tch! Just kidding!:D

Now I’m in a quandary…let me see – truth or lies, truth or lies…??

Well... it has to be truth – so sorry Ruud, but you’re wrong. It’s “The Red Headed Flea” by the Caps and I’m giving this one to udosuk even though he wasn’t very positive.

Don’t be too hard on yourself – it’s from the archives, way before you were born (most of you:D ) and you couldn’t really be expected to know it.

AND … for perfect spelling of the binomial nomenclature I’m giving Ruud a special runner up prize
= Knowing About Fleas. Kudos! Award

AND… just for him - guess this

r.ae

Just as well I'm not easily offended.

And - since quite evidently I need to clarify the situation - that was a joke (nil points etc).
