Does this puzzle include animals? Is it something someone did? Is this from a book or your own imagination? If book is it by a well known author?

Was there truly such attention to detail, or is the statement sarcastic? mocking?

Is who made the statement relevant?
You?

Writing and design involved, but not a book, so
a movie?
a TV show?
a play?
a mailing?
something along those lines?
something else entirely?

A magazine article?
Newspaper article?
Ad?
Handout or flyer?
Poster?
Webpage?

Something that I'd be likely to see
in an office?
a factory?
at home?
on the street?
in a shop?

Any special room at home where it would be seen? living room? kitchen? bedroom? toilet? bathroom? TV room?

Would I be likely to have one of these things at home? two? three? a dozen? twenty? more than twenty?

Would it make a good gift, or is it (like scented lotion) not a particularly good idea? Would it make a bad gift?

Would it make a good gift, or is it (like scented lotion) not a particularly good idea? I personally think a copy would be a great gift! Would it make a bad gift? no

A record album? you know, vinyl, big platter-looking thing with a hole in the middle and grooves?

No, but I had a feeling that would be the next one to come up! ;)

OK, let me rephrase that other question.

If I had this thing at all, would it be likely that I would have more than one of it? possible that I would have more than one of it? unlikely that I would have more than one?

If I did have more than one, would two be a likely number? would six? a dozen? two dozen?

Since you have it, and you doubt that Barbara has it (and you recommend a copy of it): is it something that you yourself have created?

OOooo-kay.

Is this a thing that I would hang on my wall?
place on a shelf? or on the mantel?
set on a table?
set on the floor?
put in the window?
hang from the ceiling?
keep in a drawer?

Is it even a tangible thing at all?

And you said that in the past I'd be likely to find it in a shop but not anymore: Would it have been in a shop as a part of the shop fixtures, or would it have been for sale?

I wouldn't be likely to find one there now because it's gone out of fashion?
because it's been replaced in general use by something else?

Is it a practical thing? or a decorative one? both?

OOooo-kay.

Is this a thing that I would hang on my wall? no
place on a shelf? or on the mantel? shelf, yes, mantle no
set on a table? possibly
set on the floor? no
put in the window? no
hang from the ceiling? no
keep in a drawer? possibly

Is it even a tangible thing at all? yes

And you said that in the past I'd be likely to find it in a shop but not anymore: Would it have been in a shop as a part of the shop fixtures, or would it have been for sale? latter, I believe it is now out of print

I wouldn't be likely to find one there now because it's gone out of fashion? no, see above, sorry
because it's been replaced in general use by something else? no

Is it a practical thing? or a decorative one? both? neither!

Oh, duh me! You said it wasn't from a book, not that it wasn't a book! So:

Is it a book?
