Who am I? (M3)

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

Postby tarek » Thu Aug 24, 2006 11:26 am

I finally got an answer right:D:D:D

This riddle was also good because it made me read A LOT, from the history of the Holy Lands to the gangs of North America, CHOPPER, and Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia (who would have made a fantastic "who am I" riddle).

Following udosuk's lead I was planning to give it away through Japanese WWII battleships or American heliocopter names....

By the way our character WAS SAINTED, If you don't believe me then you have to read a book with the title of "Saint ....[First Name]....":D:D

Ah, some resemblance to a Wizard of Oz character, perhaps (without the eventual perforations, of course).?

I hope I don't appear bitter and twisted but I'd like to lodge a PROTEST which has nothing to do with having spent a week wandering around the Holy Land on a wild goose chase.

Which part of the food chain do Antipodeans belong to, MCC? Just because you can't see us doesn't mean we're not here! We could have at least been mixed (25 million frownie faces)

I must say I wimped out and asked tarek personally for the answer... Despite being an Aussie (I've admitted I'm quite un-Australian)...
Hey, where is Cec?

Who was it, Moses, who wandered the wilderness for forty years.

Why do you think I prefaced my reply with this emm:?:
You don't make it easy do you emm.

If you're born in Australia then your Australian, as was Ned.

Mixed - to me mixed means of mixed race and Ned wasn't.

If you have asked - Antipodean:?: - I would have said yes.

Tsk tsk tsk... With all the Australian references the last few days I think I smell something unusual is waiting to happen... Perhaps the Australian Boomers will do an unthinkable upset on Dream Team VII tomorrow...:!:

True story : In the NZ census this year there was no category for people to call themselves New Zealanders. The only option for people of European descent was 'European' which would have been the prevailing opinion at the time of the early settlers and understandable 100 odd years ago although it seems incredibly outdated now. To make the point, a large number of Kiwis in the latest census nominated their ethnicity as 'Other'.

Anyway excellent riddle, MCC and you know I was only quibbling because I was frustrated at not solving it, don't you? Without udosuk's clue I don't think I would have got it even after Tarek posted. Although I had played around with the initial letters, it never occurred to me to move across even though I heard you saying angle, angle, angle. I just didn't make the connection. I still don't get 7-2 :19.
