Hypothesis 1: Are these students in an English to Speakers of Other Languages class?

Hyp 2: Are they kids trying to enact a Three Stooges skit? [Please let not that be true.]

Hyp 3: Is this a threesome of two parents and a child, or a parent and two children, arguing about which fast food joint they should stop at, to get lunch?

4: Yatin, was this part of a conversation in which:
You were part of?
You overheard?
You were teaching your youngest child to get used to zombie attacks?
You were noticing the eerie parallels between horror movie logic and the wedding vows?

[Um, your first "You can't like it none of us those" seems a bit ungrammatical...?]

Oh, wait, I'm overlooking the obvious.

Hypothesis 5: You're an archaeologist and you've finally, miraculously found a new Rosetta Stone to decipher ancient texts. Okay, so they were only a shopping list, but you're still great!

Are they discussing new furniture for the house?

Or a pet they're deciding to acquire?

A trashy tabloid newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch? (Okay, that's a poor *joke*, but it might be a very relevant *question".)

Okay, hang fire: Are these humans who speak?

Is "those" correct on your part (i.e., not a typo)? Correct on the speaker's part, i.e. the speaker meant to say it that way? If no to either of those, should it have been "none of us DOES"?

I am so so sorry
Speaker 1 says "You can't like it none of us does"
Speaker 2 - " But I love it "
Speaker 3 - " It's not for us"


I was talking to my mom while typing this. Sorry again

Is the conversation likely to be held at home?

Or: in a public place?

Or: about a neighbor's and parents's wishing the kids will make a good impression?

Does it deal with statues? With a big dog owned by one of the speakers?

Can this mess be solved by bringing in a Witch or an Exorcist?

Yatin? If this turns out to be about Giant Spiders, well, I will never speak to you again.

(I might follow you from a distance.)

Seriously, though, are they talking about some type of animal or bug - or about a setting in which they know scary creepazoids hang out?

are they talking about a place? a food? music? a sport? school? none of these . Well tried

are they talking about an object? an activity? an event? none of these too well tried again


Fionakelleghan

Is the conversation likely to be held at home? place is irrelevant but you can suppose speaker 1's house

Or: in a public place?

Or: about a neighbor's and parents's wishing the kids will make a good impression?

Does it deal with statues? With a big dog owned by one of the speakers? no good thoughts though

Can this mess be solved by bringing in a Witch or an Exorcist? I don't think so

Yatin? If this turns out to be about Giant Spiders, well, I will never speak to you again. It's not so you can talk to me

(I might follow you from a distance.)

Seriously, though, are they talking about some type of animal or bug - or about a setting in which they know scary creepazoids hang out? This is nothing about some creepy type of things

Yatin and Shez seem to have cornered the market on the wealthy world of wine tasting!

Am I close?

Do I need to ask about other folks in the place?

Are the three speakers related?

Is color blindness relevant here?

Are they talking about a specific color?

Are they only talking about a color in general terms?
Or about the color of a specific object?

bang goes that theory - I thought they might be black kids talking about having red hair

speaker 3 says "it's not for us" - is he referring to a colour? and by us does he mean the 3 of them? or a wider group of people?

Is it a colour with strong gender connections? Pink? OK Here We Have a Winner

**************Spoiler*********************


The Three Children are little boys. Boys believe that pink is a girl thing well for some reason I too. Speaker 2 loves pink colour but his friends dislike his like as it's believed as a monopoly of girls.



Hmmm Well played all, I thought Shez(well done for the colour guess), Fiona or Vesica would take it but the winner was a surprise entry


Congrats Enjay
