## What am I? (2)

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...
I did mean that apostrophes was the answer however the use of apo before trophes gives it the ("does not contain" or "without" ).

it would be interesting to see the answer turn out to be apostrophes, or the iPOD

Dear Cec,

this is all a setup by 1200 for the upcoming "what happened to the missing What am I (3)" puzzle. Don't spoil it.

Sorry about that Tarek, but again, spot on.
I thought it would be too easy, I was hoping against hope that you wouldn't see it so soon, but wasn't to be.

Souvenirs = Trophy (must eliminate the y to fit).
Plural = Trophies (eye(homophone)-less = Trophies - i) = Trophes.
Mail = post
So therefore = A post trophes = Apostrophes.

'Does not contain itself' apostrophes does not contain an apostrophe.

Because I thought it may be too easy is the reason I didn't post it as 'What am I? (3)'.

Emm, again I thought you had it with

I was hoping for more time to come up with number 3. I'll see if I can come up with something later today.

Didn't mean to put you under pressure with this, I thought that you had millions of them at your fingertips. And here you are, just naturally brilliant!

It seems like I'm wearing gloves today and everything I come up with seems banal.

It looks like Ruud is filling in for me at the moment.

Is it supposed to be another (hidden) riddle?

Twice my attempts ended up missing by one single letter... Too cruel... ...

### What am I (2)?

I think I'm close. "Too long a queue I see - I hate to queue before I pxx" . I'm worried about censorship
