Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

What am I (7b)

Postby Ruud » Thu May 11, 2006 9:46 pm

To give MCC's brain cells a little revovery time, I have a filler again. I also like to ask the questions from time to time, in stead of answering them.

Here it is:

As a former leader of German tourists in Cornwall, I like to see things bigger than usual.

What am I:?:

Why the mentioning of "Cornwall"?

Would it be Corn-growing then?:)

Indeed.


Time for an additional hint:
Ruud wrote:As a former leader of German tourists in Cornwall, I like to see things bigger than usual.


This is a word with a prefix, a center part, and a suffix. Each of these 3 parts can be found with the clues before the comma.


Award status:

Too Speedy for Others won by MCC.
Creative Entries, Cool! not awarded yet.
Leave Us Now Alone maimed by the very person the award is named after. How typical:D
Every Miss Matters:
MCC: 1
Udosuk: 1
Tarek: 1
Underquark: 1

A former leader of German = Fuhrer

German tourist = reise = i seer = eye seer = sightseer

Mevagissey is a fishing village in Cornwall which has a small park known as “Hitler’s Walk”.

Mevagissey = mega vissey = big vision

Putting all this together

Fuhrer – seer – large = fuselage.

Am I in the money?:D

Is it an 'Extinguisher'?

Is it Paul von Hindenburg?

Is it anything to do with Sherlock Holmes?

Not correct, but certainly in the running for the Creative Entries, Cool! award.

No

This is a well known person. No score.
MCC wrote:Is it an 'Extinguisher'?
No

No (not a guess, no score)


Every Miss Matters scoreboard:
MCC: 2
Udosuk: 1
Tarek: 1
Underquark: 1
emm: 1 *new*

To find the suffix, check out what a tourist is called by the locals in Cornwall (and parts of Devon):idea:

Hmm, that would guve a suffix sounding like "emmett" and yet the "I like..." would have implied and ending of "ist".

Is it "approximate"?

Apologies, MCC, for blatantly trampolining off your shoulders, but there's points to be had.....

Former = ex

The German bit = uber – I don’t think it means leader but it sounds German and there's a Dead Kennedys song called "California Uber Alles"

I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be president...

Tourists in Cornwall = ants

I like to see things bigger than usual = eggshubirant = exuberant or just to cover all bases exuberance and exuberantual:D
