## Mannekin Pis: A Picture Riddle/Puzzle

Many of you will remember Gray-T and the colorful comments he used to leave on the site. Haven’t heard from him in a while, but last week he surprised me with this picture riddle/puzzle: (click on picture for high resolution version)

The 3 pictures combine to produce one word. Can you figure it out? Feel free to submit your answers in the comment section below. We have 3 hints, which we’ll put up over the next 1-2 days. Answers to be unmasked sometime over the weekend.

Hint 1: Some basic mathematical logic needed

Hint 2: A Beatles song: Baby you can drive my…

Hint 3: Normally WE talk about US, but if WE see HER, Tom “Tiger” Jones would sing: ….is a lady.

Hint 4: First Letter: What is the Mannekin Pis doing?

Hint 5: look for a logical / mathematical term / sign that looks similar

Ok, I will try this one:
1) Pis or Water(H20)2) Hand making a two—> peace or just two (to)
3)12,0107 is the atomic mass of carbon
h20 + Carbon Dioxide = carbonic acid then h2 is lost in the air and only bicarbonate is left.
So my guess for the word is bicarbonate. But my instint says this answer is to scientific, so I guess is not the one, but the only one I see so far

carbon + female = diamond

10. Diego | Profile

That seems to be the molecular structure of diamond, so female + diamond = marriage, wedding, bride, proposal, gold digger, etc etc

My guess is Pibride, I hope that is a word

I still don’t see how to apply the clues, I’m not using any mathematical logic or singing

It’s obviously an EVO :P

Well for the first picture, I would say that the water is an arc. The Beatles sang about a car, but I don’t know if that hint means that the answer is a car, if car rhymes with a part of the answer, or if car is a word in the answer. Same thing for Tom Jones’ “she”.
The peace sign could be an angle or a V for vertex or vector or joined (sorry I was an English major so all that higher math is quite vague).
I see the carbon in the symbol for female, but I don’t know about diamond…

Just me thinking out loud.

[…] you get what the middle picture is for this one, use it again in Gray-T’s puzzle below (Mannekin Pis) and the answer should be […]

Is the middle picture lambda?

18. Anastasia11 | Profile

Porsche.
But I don’t see why the middle symbol is or.

Porsche!

Pee – Or – She

20. zedbot69 | Profile

Porsche – P or s C he

21. sebbie3000 | Profile

Porsche?

22. bobg | Profile

I GET IT!

V = OR logical symbol sort of.

Porsche!

P or She.

…right?

23. hroman | Profile

P (pee) + OR + SHE (symbol for venus) + C (Carbon, inside VENUS)

= PORSCHE

24. kaligilbert3 | Profile

PORSCHE???

25. bobg | Profile

porsche!

P or she put together. I’m not sure how the number ans symbol play into it though

Lamb-Or_Genie = Lamborghini

Pee-Or-She = Porshe

if RK place both riddles side by side would make more sense
