Title: Bamboo's Wanky Wednesday Teaser (on a Thursday)
Post by: bamboonoshop on Thursday, January 23, 2020, 02:16:44
Ok, so I want to change/distract a few of you with something a bit more fucking fun. Rather than continued thread derailment (I'm writing my own death note with that I know), stupid arguing about whether PO goals count or not for certain scenarios, or that our season is over. So a little shift of focus.

If you want to take part, it is open to all. If you don't, you don't and that's fine too.

So, I'm not sure if any of you know but I'm a keen photographer. I've done several paid projects, working on many personal (self funded) projects, amongst other stuff. It's tough, especially when starting with zero backing at all. I'll be honest, there are days where I feel like chucking everything in; but that aint me. Some of you might like my work, some of you will think I'm a cunt regardless and some of you will just not like it at all. Again, it's fine - anything creative is always at the mercy of the holder/viewer/reader. We're all viable critics when it comes to art - whatever the medium.

Right, essentially all I'm proposing is a way of getting some of my work out there a little more and I'm certainly not getting the Bournemouth Begging Bowl out. Each week, I'll pose a teaser and whoever answer's correctly first, will win a photographic print of their choosing (from an available selection) and maybe I'll chuck in a few other prizes as time goes on. All completely free and I'll cover p&p, even if you live in outer Mongolia or whatever.

If no one guesses correctly within the week, then it'll roll on until someone gets it. The bonus is, the prints and prizes will rollover so you could end up with the pleasure of having something like 20 of my prints rolling around your attic or to use as some useful kindling :)

PS: If any of you run a business or want to donate a prize/voucher/whatever then feel free but no pressure to do so.

Anyway, I'll try to keep each weeks teaser/riddle short (Haha, Mr. Concise here). So without further adieu, here is the very first Bamboo's Wanky Wednesday Teaser (on a Thursday):

What did Sheffield students have, when Nick Clegg became Deputy Prime Minister?

Answer: A Hallam Hope

I'm not quite sure why it would work, but based entirely on the constituency (and university) name, is the answer 'a Hallam Hope?'

Good Evening!

Well that one didn't take long, I'll have to go more cryptic next time!

Really loved Audrey's syphilis answer, which in most circumstances would've been correct but bared no real correlation with Mr. Clegg (not that i'm aware of).

EB figured out how the answer worked but indeed, early bird gets that worm and NEMO accurately and potentially unknowingly answered correctly. I'll DM you with a link to your print options and other formalities tomorrow. Well done!

I've decided to also giveaway, once this concludes (or somewhen), a free canvas of one of my landscape shots to the person who guesses in the quickest time. So far Nemo holds that record of course with an impressive 5hrs 41mins 25secs. Long way to go yet but can it be beaten?

Cheers for now, and catch whoever wants to take part next time, when we play Week Two of Bamboo's Weekly Wanky Teaser.

Bamboo  :)

Afternoon!

In true and likely continuing form, Bamboo's WWT is back and on a Thursday, for Week Two. NEMO won Week One with his very quick answer of 'A Hallam Hope'. His image of choice was a 'Frog in Bucket'. Every week I'll include the image chosen. La Grenouille is now on it's way to Mr. Nemo and will feature in his office space.

He also made a really great but simple gesture; since I'm doing this for nowt he offered to donate a token amount to a charity of my choosing. If anyone else wishes follow suit then I implore you to do so. Fantastic idea. Charity of choice for Week One was C.A.LM, a really great charity which focuses on preventing suicide in predominantly males under 45. Find out more at www.thecalmzone.net

No more dragging this out (I know you're all so desperate to know what the next one is), so moving on as we play Week Two of Bamboo's WWT (on a Thursday);

From memories of steam and traffic, to a diamond era. You can't beat a Locomotive!
What am I?

Answer: The STFC Logo

Afternoon!

Bamboo's WWT is back and on a Thursday, for Week Three. Red Frog won Week Two with his even quicker answer of 'The STFC Logo'. His image of choice was 'Agapanthus Heads & Spider Threads'. Image chosen below. The print is now on it's way to Monsieur Le Frog and was selected by the lovely Madame Frog.

He also, like Nemo, made a charitable gesture; the charity of choice for Week Two was Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, a charity close in our minds that the Town have visibly supported, which focuses on raising the awareness of Motor Neurone Disease. Find out more at https://darbyrimmermnd.co.uk

Moving on now, as we play Week Three of Bamboo's WWT (on a Thursday);

What do Louis Thompson, Michael Doughty and Ronan Murray all have in common?

Is it something to do with multiple loan spells? Murray I can't remember us having twice but I know Doughty and Thompson both did. If the other one was Jack Stephens or someone like that I'd think we were there...

It genuinely will rollover IF no one gets it by 00.00 Thurs (that's 00:00 GMT not TST (TEF Standard Time). Which will mean two prints to the winner.

I'll give some clues/hints tomorrow but they might be posted elsewhere on the TEF.

So 30mins left before Bamboo's WWT becomes a rollover.

There have been plenty of guesses. Reg may have been getting somewhere but he just wasn't really on the money. No one has defined the actual link between the three yet, even if the wrong reason why.

As stated. I have been leaving discreet hints in my replies in other threads. So if you're arsed have a careful look through and see if you can spot the clues.

Clyde - Philo Beddoe's (Clint Eastwood's) orangutan in Every Which Way But Loose & Every Which Way You Can

Or:
Add 'Saint' before their first names and you get:
St Louis - Patron saint of shit holes in America
St Ronan - Patron saint in Ireland
St Michael - Patron saint of underwear in M&S

Just going on the fact that you have made a couple of references in recent posts to clans and kilts, I'm guessing there is a Scottish link.....? Whisky or tartan?

Exiled Bob is getting warmer. You have the Scottish link and I may give it to you but I need the three Scottish links. I believe two have already been said albeit not making the Scottish connection.

Murray, Thompson and Doughty are all hills in Scotland. I'm guessing they are also lakes, or lochs, and Mounts......

All three answers are now on this thread. Exiled Bob has almost named two of them. Someone else named one of them.

Not Thompson, and not lake. The clue lies within one of the other surnames.

They all share their names with geographical features of Scotland:

Doughty Hill
Moray (clan Murray) Firth
Firth of Clyde

Firth of Clyde



I'll give you it. Since you identified Murray clan beforehand.

The answer is, despite being of Welsh & Irish descent they all have a Scottish link. Doughty Hill in South Ayrshire (Michael Edward Doughty), the Clyde source starts in the county of South Lanarkshire next door and of course leads to the sea (Louis William Clyde Thompson) Murray also means "by the sea" but is a well known Clan in Scotland (Ronan Michael Murray). Going full circle (or triangle) if you stood on Doughty Hill and looked west you would see the Firth of Clyde.

Another fact of note. All three also have U21 caps that are synonymous with the number of middle names they have.

Congrats exiled Bob. You've won two prints! I'll DM you with details :)

Evening!

The Rollover has been won!

Some cracking answers and a few niche facts discovered!

4D was getting pretty close to deciphering but after going so close in Week One, it was Exiled Bob who lethargically came to a pieced-together conclusion. Well done!

What do Michael Doughty, Louis Thompson & Ronan Murray all have in common?

Answer: Despite being of Welsh & Irish descent, they all have have a Scottish link.

Doughty Hill
Firth of Clyde
&
Murray Clan

Cheers for now, and catch whoever wants to take part next time, when we play Week Four of Bamboo's Weekly Wanky Teaser.

Bamboo  :)

Evening!

Exiled Bob won the Week Three rollover, identifying 'A Scottish Link' between three town players with no Scottish heritage. His images of choice were 'The Path Less Spoken' & 'Sacromonte Graffiti.

I have to take an important moment here. I took the first image when I was in a very defining situation. The image is simple but delivers a very clear message; "Je ne comprends rien à la vie." ~ I don't understand anything in life.

With recent events it is important for all of us to reflect and speak to someone, whenever we may reach a darker place. A place where just a few simple words might be enough to know someone cares, and help us to come out the other side. It's also important that we make ourselves available to people who may be in need too. Only then can we all help to combat the effects that mental health issues will bring all of us at some stage.

Charity of choice for Week Three is Samaritans, a well known and fantastic charity which focuses on making sure there's always someone there for anyone who needs someone. Find out more at www.samaritans.org
