What am I? (29)

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

Postby udosuk » Wed Oct 18, 2006 4:28 pm

Is the riddle essentially asking:

How do you make a celebrity run/drive away like a chicken, as fast as he/she could?

In that case there are too many ways... Such as approaching them with your fingers in your coat pocket emulating the shape of a pistol, or wearing a raincoat and making the impression that you're wearing nothing underneath, and are about to unbutton and pull open the coat (okay, that might not work on some celebrity, such as Paris Hilton)...

Sorry, I know this is not supposed to be a joking riddle, but couldn't resist...:D

As a crossword guy, this looks like anagrams. Let me ponder overnight

No.

This is too specific, you'll need to be more general in your thinking, look at udosuk's post.
Does "a well known person" mean "celebrity".


Your initial introduction to this riddle said "This is a riddle, as a joke, it's baffling". I was prompted to put my long shot question considering the word "baffling" and "speed" have been mentioned and I came up with a movie titled "Baffled" where the lead role is actor Leonard Nimoy who plays the part of a racing car driver. I have never heard of this actor ("celebrity"?) but then again I'm not up with all the new film actors.

If I was on the right track then I would delve further along this path.

You're being too elaborate.

No anagrams involved.

Cec, don't worry, clue coming up.

emm wrote:Is the celebrity male or female?

Neither.
Nor is it an animal.

Ok, clue time.

Thanks emm for your posted image. I now recognize his face from a space movie or TV program which I never watched if that makes sense:)

MCC..I was a bit confused before but now I"m more confused:)

Is this quotation a further clue relevent to the riddle or solely for my benefit - and possibly others - to know more about the movies that actor Leonard Nimoy appeared in as described in a wikepedia search of this quotation.

I got the impression from emm's above comment and posted image of this actor that I was travelling into space and getting nowhere with an answer.

Cec, don't worry about the phrase "\\// Live long and prosper", it's not riddle related, it's a phrase used by the character that Leonard Nimoy played in the Star Trek series & films.

It's not Apium graveolens or any other vegetable, but you thinking along the right lines.

I'm in two minds to suggest this hurried post but running late for golf. The latest clues are about bees and vegetables, eg peas, so we have BP's eg BP service stations . Is it to do with the bee running out of petrol because a little BP (oops!) makes the bee speed up?

Cec

PS. Please ignore this post. I was confused with another "BP" riddle which is not related to MCC"s riddle.

Apologies to udosuk, after recieving a nudge I've reread his last post and he has the right answer.

It has nothing to do with BP.

It has nothing to do with a particular person.
