Six Glasses Raised


I don't think it should be difficult to solve once you realise that, Yes, it is a picture puzzle?

Been visiting Golden Museum for a while; a very interesting site. Thanks for the other links. Unfortunate about that "A-Ha" picture linked to what seems a good blog-site; must have been after the sixth glass was raised and emptied.

I am - even at this late stage - open to suggestions for improving that particular image. I've been wracking my brain for a suitable pun or allusion, but that was the best I came up with.

If you "get" the theme, perhaps you could suggest an alternative?

I'm assuming the "A-Ha" is akin to "Eureka!", indicatin the site has much new info or old info expressed in a newer way causing one to dive into a pile of 1980's pop music to grab something familiar and exclaim...a ha! I'm not sure what that lower left hand symbol is. 30? As in, "Everyone over 30 should die."?! Those two guys in the lower right hand corner of the picture? I am without clue; symbols of serious but callow youth? As your entries get pithier, they become denser. Or is it me who'd scoring high on the density meter? Dooooooohhh!

That "30" in fact symbolizes the one vibration behind all vibrations.

Is the answer: Saintly Nicodemus and the Whoremongers of Norwich? If not, can somebody please point me in the direction of a picture puzzle that Saintly Nicodemus and the whoremongers of Norwich might be the answer to

Hmmm. A challenge?

Were there to be one, I expect it would show an elderly gentleman - white-haired and bearded - who holds in his hand a quill pen and a vellum book, and who is knocking at a door - a red door - behind which, and to be seen peering through dark curtains, are various ladies? All of them clearly made-up, but apparently lacking any place to go.

They would be simling, gently. Old "Saintly" Nicodemus - ostensibly so-called because of his commitment to severe public works, but privately known because of a curious glow, almost a halo, around a certain extremity - Old Nicodemus would not be laughing. A warning would be imminent.

The major difficulty, I ought to have said, which has become apparent this morning, is that whoever would construct such a puzzle would have to find a way to symbolize Norwich? In a manner that his readers might deduce?

That's not easy.

This St. Nicodemus? Would he possibly have the answer? Or is it the monger of whores who has a clue?

Well, somebody came knocking on the whoremonger's door.

Was it Sainted Nicodemus? I dunno.
