…And Did You Know It After All That?


Thursday 13 March, 2014 by Uncle Spike

So, nobody had Lady Luck smiling down on this week.

But some were getting closer to guessing the mystery image…




I said it was one of those things you either know, or don’t know. Well, not that I know and use it personally, but Aunty Spike does. So, did these clues help?  I guess not 😦


Used mostly by women, but not exclusively.

Think small – that image is perhaps 7-8mm (5/16ths”) in diameter.

Usually found near water, but not used with water.

It helps turn up the volume.

Not much use for Bruce Willis or Patrick Stewart.




It was the nozzle from a hair mousse can.

Simple if ya know it, eh? But no help to the rest of humanity.






Now if you feel the need to torture your brain further…. check out this great mystery post from Annette. I have been trying but can’t crack it, yet. How about you? 😀

    Incredible! I am going to start looking much more at the details of things from now on……
    I take it it was plastic – it really looked metal. Good one – thanks for the challenge.

      Yep, just a plastic top to a can of mousse. I need to give more clues…


      • AnnetteM says:

        I actually think you gave quite a lot – it really got me thinking. You have probably guessed, I love a puzzle.
        I don’t have a can like that, but I wasn’t even thinking along the right lines. Oh well it was fun.

          Difficult one Annette. Give an easier subject with plenty of clues and everyone has a go, like maybe 30-40 guessers… but these recent ones, whilst challenging, only find 5 or so guessers, whereas 99% of folk like to be entertained, not challenged (present company excepted).
