Would the choice of celery have come about partially due to the confusion between stake and steak?

If yes, do I have to disqualify myself since I know the source material?

Is the fact that celery is often served with steak relevant?

Please recap if you don't mind, as there seem to be more and more things that are not consistent.

Thanks!

No problem!Okay let's see what we have established so far.. They used the celery because it resembled a stake. In the puzzle it involves a two legged mammal it's not an animal but it's a person. Knowing what these individuals are going to use the celery for is important and why. Also what they are. When you heard stake you immediately thought vampire. You are not all wrong think about how the stake is used to kill vampires. This comes from a book that I was reading. Guess the book and it becomes very clear. It's from a British author

Oh man - I'd be about as accurate guessing the book as I would the manufacturer's stock number of the front bumper bracket on your car. So since that's a dead end I'll try the back door...

The celery was going to be inserted into a person?
If so, into an existing oriface (mouth, nose, ear)? Or use the piece of celery to puncture the body?
