The "What am I?" game

In the "What am I?" game, I show you a picture, and you guess what the picture is of! Because pictures are accurate representations of reality, this will be easy and you will win huge prizes. You might have to rent a storage locker somewhere to store all your prizes.

The only thing that makes it a tiny bit harder is that the pictures are kind of close up. So it probably helps if you're the sort of person who looks very closely at everything. But since that's what I think of as the defining characteristic of my readership I am pretty sure the prize floodgates will be imminently swinging open!

So submit your solutions in the comments section below and then start watching your mailbox.

Two answers correct:    100 amazing prizes!

Three answers correct:    1,000 super valuable amazing prizes and 17 grand prizes and two sweepstakes prizes and ten bonus prizes to everyone who submitted any answers at all!

Four answers correct:    And the whole World is now yours. Solve global warning. End the pandemic. Or just build the biggest library ever. It's all up to you!


I'm nervous too. But remember, there is no time limit.


Okay then.

Number 1.  Tell me, what am I?

Number 2.  Tell me, what am I?

Number 3.  Tell me, what am I?

Number 4.  Tell me, what am I?


  1. 1. ghosts
    2. sea shell
    3. Ninja Turtle babies
    4. about 1/3 over from the bottom left corner, there is an alien face with closed eyes. everything around the face is what the face is dreaming.


    1. So, so, SO close!

      In fact, you might be right and I might be wrong?

      I'll send a few dozen prizes just to be safe.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
