What Am I? (M1)

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

NB : I have no idea why this computer is underlining random words but I find that if I put them up here it won't underline them down there - one word.


This puzzle sits for 2 weeks and as soon as I start mentioning prizes I get answers. What does that tell you?

OK prizes you get.

Luna - of course you're allowed to look it up but I think that's a word ending. All I can say is you seem to have a one track mind.:D For you - some more tracks.:D

MCC - I thought you had it with springs and you were too polite to say. For always being a perfect gentleman - a Tuxedo Tshirt - sorry no photo available it's on back order - in black and white lycra in a flattering one size fits all.:D

Tarek - the grand prize – a flea catcher.:D

The pertinent clues wrote:
in verse

re proof

reproof

and the obvious .

Thanx emm, I was -for a second- thinking that you would try to do a Van Gogh trick:D

Tarek - are you saying that if I learn how to post images I'll be able to put some of my own art work in here too?:D

MCC - you're quite right about assumptions. (Priscilla, Q o D agrees:D ). Sorry for reading too much into your reply.

I fear we are not all up with the play on r.ae - Yes? No? ...

but this one's a doddle:D

Yes - but it doesn't relate to the riddle only to assumptions.

No, this red spot is not a red stop. If I make it bigger it might be clearer.:D

Also, sorry I put you wrong - this is a bit more accurate.

How about:

Be beside the red square:?:

Not having seen "Priscilla of the Desert" I'm not sure how it relates to my assumptions.

I did see Priscilla Queen of the Desert and I'm completely lost.

Will someone please tell me if anybody got the answer to r.ae and we've moved on to something else or if all this red square thing is a clue to the original question?:(

Yes, this thread has gone on a weird path because I assumed everyone knew the answer. We got our yr yr xd.

In the beginning … r.ae = a flea in the ear = a reproof. It was in verse because if you look closely the flea is facing backwards:D

P, QoD is not related to the flea but to my assumption about MCC having figured it out. I might get an r.ae from you, Luna, if I explain it in Priscilla's language but I'm happy to - for the sake of clarity - if you give me the go-ahead:D

And the red spot is not a red square nor even the Красная площадь ... though I hope I don't get another r.ae for using a foreign language because I'm just trying to clear things up

… so, yes, everything is related in a roundabout kind of way but not the way I’m thinking … and that’s the way that counts:D

The way I’m thinking wrote:.B = . = .b+b+b+b+b+b+b+b

a bumblebee attempting to be beyond the point decides to have a splash party, it attacks a bubo, a LARGE bubo, a LARGE POINTED bubo, A LARGE POINTED RED bubo. The bumblebee never knew if it was a big box or just smallpox, but it got what it was after, a big splash.:)

No further thoughts on this one so far.

But in the meanwhile, for emm.
