There are two fairly well known people who most would consider to have very little in common, but who in fact have something very specific in common that can be said about no one else in the world. Who are they and what is the thing they have in common?

hope this doesn't convolute things!

can we say that man #1 (can we call him Juan?) was the one that is alive? was he born in 1890s, 1900s, 1910s, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s?

can we say that man #2 (can we call him Drew?) was the one that is "yope" to being alive? was he born in 1890s, 1900s, 1910s, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s?

with regards to the "yope" to being alive? does this mean that Drew is in a coma?

was Juan the musician? was Drew the musician?

since the other entertainer was "yope" to being an entertainter and was yes to being in movies, did this person do something behind the scences? director? producer? gaffer? best boy?

Did they share the same first and last name? only same first name? only same last name?

So we have a famous male musician?
and a famous male yopish entertainer? of various media?

If the musician changed his name to "Marty Finkelditch" would there still be the same thing in common?

If one was female could they still have the same thing in common?

If they had different careers could they still have that same thing in common?

one of them is yopishly alive today? is it the ish-entertainer? the musician?

So Drew is fictional? By yopishly born in the 90s do you mean he was first written about or apperaed on TV or whatever in the 90s? And he is a yopish entertainer in the movie and TV business? Is the yopish because he's only yopishly alive? Or because he is only yopishly an entertainer?

A mate of mine who is a music encyclopedia has just informed me that Marvin Gaye was born in 1939 but close enough i guess

So Drew is a tv and film character that was created during the 1990's right? part of a series of films e.g. a trilogy or at least a film with a sequel? Did the character appear on TV before film? Does the character still appear on our tv screens today (excluding reruns)? Does the same actor play him on the big and small screen (think i may be FAing here)

The link between him and the great Bob something to do with a Marley song? album? concert? lyric?

Is specific knowledge of Bob's work required to solve?


BTW Is the yopish because he's only yopishly alive?yope! classic

would the common action be one that Bob did? Borat did? something one or both of them said?

hypothetically, If you read both of their biographies would the common thing likely be visible?

If you watched the Borat movie and listened to all of Marley's music would it be possible to find the common thing?

If Marley was a country artist form Nashville could he still have this thing in common?

Is the potential FA around the specific action the fact that a third party did something that forms the link between the two? . A crazy e.g. someone you know has a tattoo of each of them? Are any third parties relevant? if so 1? less than 5? less than 10? less than 100? 1000? 10,000? 100,000? 1 Million?

Is the specific thing they have in common something that we might possibly know about? Is the third party a friend of yours? a famous person? an artist of some sort?
Do images of Bob and Borat both feature somewhere? A combined image of the two?

Is this painting in the normal sense of the word i.e using paint and a brush? or could it be another sort e.g. Painting fingernails? Face Painting?

I'll go ahead and clear up the FA. It is not a painting at all, and does not use paint or a brush. But, I somehow created images of Bob and Borat on some kind of objects.

were the images created by computer maybe?

since it deosn't use paint, I'm assuming that it's not a silkscreen image on a shirt, right? could the image be on a shirt?

another crazy idea: I know you can send in a photograph and have a jigsaw puzzle made of the image? was this it?

China Plates? Daft Guess unless you know a lot of households that have only one or no plates. As you can see it was late at night when i posted that one.

Is the item something that someone who does a form of art be more likely to have? Or is it related to a particular hobby?

Would your choice of subjects (Borat& Marley) provide any clue to the object? or are they random choices on your part?

Becca

As this has gone a bit quiet can i try and sum up what we've learned. It's an intriguing puzzle.

Borat & Bob Marley have something in common that cannot be said of any other two people. Their commonality is a result of an action you took in your capacity as an artist. This action involved creating an image of them on some sort of object that is not made of Paper, Wood, Plastic, Concrete, Marble or is not a knitted, cross stiched or woven fabric. The images are not painted or a mosiac or collage. Both men's appearance is yopeishly relevant.

Hope that's all correct.

Were you commissioned to create this image? or did you do it for your own enjoyment? Was it to commemorate an occassion or anniversary of something? Do you still have the object? If not was it a gift from you to a friend or relative? or did you sell it? If yes then is it an ornament? or does it have some practical use? Is it hanging on a wall anywhere?

Final mad thought . Is the object edible . Is it a cake?

Did you use a mould to create this. Was it a dessert? Chocolate? ice cream? Jelly/Jello?

Was the object in the shape of a person or did it just have their faces etched on it.

Was it someones birthday? Is the type of occasion relevant?

Was the occasion a special one for you and your relatives? A wedding? Christmas? Thanksgiving? Bar Mitzvah?

Or was the occasion relevant to Bob Marley or Borat?

I'm raking my brian and can't think of a food item other than a cake that you could have someone's face on.

did you carve images of Borat and Bob Marley into pumpkins for Halloween?YES!

*********** SPOILER *************

This year was the first year that I've ever carved a jack o'lantern for Halloween (by myself anyway, I don't count when I was 6 and my dad helped).
I wanted them to be as realistic as possible, and as an artist, I refused to use those patterns you can buy. The first one I made was Borat, just because I thought it would be funny. Then I made Bob Marley, since I was planning to bring the pumpkins to my friend's Halloween party and he's a big Marley fan.

So, Borat and Bob Marley have one very specific thing in common, that can be said about no one else in the world (until next year). I have carved their likenesses into pumpkins.

Here's a link to images:
Borat and Bob

Those were great! (My pumpkins didn't look anything like that! : ) )

After seeing your pumpkins, I'd love to see your other artwork. Do you have anything else online?
