What the fizzle? what the what?

go on what? It was an attempt to tantalize you, making you count from five up to twenty. But I immediately felt ashamed of myself. Can you forgive me?

were there 20 people whose appearance was relevant? YES

Is it relevant what they look like? The clothes they wear? The size of their heads?

ok, I'll join in, but I'm kind of confused.

This Bob/Tom thing... Is Bob one of the 20? Is Tom? Are Bob and Tom the same person? Do any of the other 20 need names?
Have we established anything about Tom? about Bob?
Have we established who, if anyone, was praying? Is someone praying? Bob? Tom? Bill? the 20? relevant?
Was Bill supposed to be praying? but was instead prying?
Are any of these people... priests? nuns?
Is there an Inquisition going on here?

weight of their NOSEs? what are NOSEs?

One person is trying to discover something about the appearance of at least 20 people? Yes
More than 20? Exactly 20
Something specific about their appearance? yes
The person prying is male? yes
The people pryed on are female / male mixed? all males

Location relevant? yes
Time period relevant? yesish

clothing relevant? noish

Hairstyle? Tatoos? Nose? no to these

ok, I'll join in, but I'm kind of confused. Welcome, Miroac, hope you'll have fun!

This Bob/Tom thing... Is Bob one of the 20? yes
Is Tom? no
Are Bob and Tom the same person? no Do any of the other 20 need names? no, even Bob really does not need a name
Have we established anything about Tom? I do not think so about Bob? all what refers to the 20 persons refers also to Bob
Have we established who, if anyone, was praying? not yet Is someone praying? Bob? no Tom? no Bill? no the 20? no relevant? yes!
Was Bill supposed to be praying? yes! but was instead prying? yes! Goooood questions!
Are any of these people... priests? nuns? no
Is there an Inquisition going on here? no

Let's say that Bill was prying about 20 people all named Bob and there is another person named Tom...

Don't you think it seems rather surrealistic to have 20 Bobs around? But YES, this is exactly the idea.

Hi Shawn,

of course he is special because he is in my puzzle! However, could you specify what do you exactly mean by "special"
