MCC is generally very precise with his offerings so

Why does 'Is this a clue' not have a '?' ?
Why is the H after the colon a capital letter ?

MCC, are either of these questions relevant to the answer?

Okaaaaaaay.

Let me split them up.

Is it relevant that 'Is this a clue' not have a '?' ?

Is it relevant that the H after the colon is a capital letter ?

A quip/joke with this type of construction is called a Tom Swifty. So are you Tom Swifty:?:

The guy in question if you are right (which looks likely) is Tom Swift, rather than Swifty. I am trying to reconcile this with MCC's answer to my earlier question.

Tone not there yet, said he dischordently

From a certain point of view it is relevant.

No.

I'm not Tom Smith, he properly announced.

This has nothing to do with the "Who am I:?: "
3.14159.

I think that MJ was asking whether you are Tom Swift. If he wasn't, let me ask the same question.

I know that "He" is a popular surname in China... Here is some info...

So is the "who" a famous Chinese from the He family?:?:

Also, a very famous Chinese is "Zheng He" (He being the first name here), who allegedly was the first ever person that circumnavigated the globe and arrived in America in the 15th century before Ferdinand Magellan and Christopher Columbus. Is this person relevant?:?:

Also, "He" is the 5th letter of many Semitic alphabets, the 4th letter of the Ukrainian and Belarusian alphabets, and a romanisation of a Japanese Kana, plus the symbol for Helium... Is any of these relevant?:?:

Further, "HE" can represent "His Excellency" or "Her Excellency"... Are these terms applicable here?:?:

Lastly, is the word "colon" or "Colon" relevant?:?:

It could be if I'm thinking what you're thinking, but I'm not really sure if that is what you're thinking, so can you either give me another hint so that I know that's what you're thinking or else PM me.


I thought "I'm not Tom Smith" was self explanatory.
