    Solve my riddle

    (Another thread in
    Foo reminded me of
    this poem/riddle I
    wrote in 1999. PM me
    if you can solve it.)


    A poem for somebody who really cares
    1999

    (A message for
    our friends on
    the right. Must
    be over 20).

    Mourn for the giant that I,
    as I was playing harmonica, slew in Sky-
    dome. You all say I blew
    him away. You are no
    God, think what you will - I am JC. Lint on
    a white house carpet?
    It gives offence to no-one.

    bluebottle1, you are the first one to figure that out ever.

    Any more solvers out there? A couple of others are sniffing down the right general trail.

    No. Too brain dead. And I'm too lazy to think politically. Nice avatar, baybuh! That should be worth a red star, though you already have one.

    There is no answer. It is not even a riddle. A riddle has clues. Some easy, some not. this thing makes no sense at all. The OP doesn't even give a hint as to what kind of riddle it is. We need something to go on here. There is absolutley nothing in any internet search I did on this thing anywhere. Therefore it does not exist.

    Is it political? Is it mathmatical? What?

    Heh, heh. There is more to it. But I know I can't get my head about it so late, after so long a day and so many Modelo Negros....

    Let's see if I can pick this apart.

    1. Mourn referes to someone mourning or being sad about something. But what or who?
    2. Giant referes to a well known or popular political or sports figure perhaps. But who?
    3. Harmonica referes to playing of or enjoyment of music.
    4. Skydome referes to the nations capitol building or maybe a sports dome? But which one & where?
    5. Blew him away referes to the figure is male & he was either killed or amazed at the musical enjoyment. Maybe?
    6. You are no god, I think this means the person is being humble or humbled. But which?
    7. JC is someones initials. But who's? Jimmy Carter perhaps?
    8. I think White House is very obvious. No guessing here.
    9. It gives no offence means what ever it is it is not offending.

    Am I even close here?

    Some of what you say is slightly relevant but you're not close to solving it.

    Mexican Brewery. And I misspoke. It's "Negra Modelo." Excellent dark Mexican beer.

    Well, glad I got it. I won't give away the secret, though. Quite a clever little puzzle.

    Then give us a freaking clue or hint, huh?!

    Is the Skydome refering to this? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogers_Centre

    Is the music part refereing to a concert?

    What parts are relevant?

    I am going to send this to as many people at work as I can to get it figured out. Once it is figured out I'll send a PM to see if it is correct.
