HNT and Thursday Brain Teaser!


Happy Half-Nekkid Thursday, everybody!
I found my old Teddy again. Must be rough living in the basement! When I picked him up I noticed all these holes on his paws and I could see his insides! He felt half-nakid and I promised I would fix him!(picture will be published as soon as blogger is ready!)


Everybody...Thinking Cap on!

When his candy business failed in New Orleans, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York, he switched to another type of sweets. In 1905, he set up what would become the world’s largest chocolate manufacturing plant. He chose to give tours of the plant instead of advertisings. Success allowed him to establish a school for orphaned boys. The school and his hometown in Pennsylvania are now named for him.

If you think you got it, and I bet all the Pez-family do!, go to the comment section and HINT! at the rigth answer, thereby allowing others to play as well and leaving clues for those of us who need another minute!

See you there!

And to Iceland-Good Luck to us tonight!

"Kiss me, under the milky twilight"

IS there a highway named after him?

Bad dawg!

 
At 19:21, Blogger Cowgirl said...

Another one I know! He became fascinated with chocolate in Chicago in 1893.

His first name is shared with another famous businessman who was a pioneer in the board game industry.

His town has the aroma of chocolate.....and a lot of kisses.

Question: Is it to late for me to ask for a letter from the Queen?

 
At 22:35, Blogger Minka said...

And very good!

Doug, I seriously wouldn´t know and don´t be too hard on yourself!

cowgirl, yihaaaa!

Móa, indeed it does. Not that I have ever been there! And you can have a letter any day...I am assigning "A" to you. Mostly becuase when I think of you I thin of art!

 
At 22:37, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, I checked:(Route 322, Dauphin County, PA) ;) Very well done! Good doggy!

 
At 23:28, Blogger Bjorn said...

At 23:29, Blogger Minka said...

bjössi, yes it doeshhh!

 
At 23:40, Blogger Mo'a said...

"A" it is....I like.....I will put the meme up soon.....this will be fun.

 
At 23:40, Blogger AP3 said...

Ew, Doug, that hint is GROSS!!!!

Yeah, I grew up going to an amusement park named after him...

What a cute Teddy Bear!

 
At 04:20, Blogger Doug said...

Hey there's the bear! I think I had one named Toodie who looked just like yours.

Aral, I was talking about route 322 through Dauphin County.

 
At 05:43, Blogger ariel said...

I don't know who it is, but you sure make me think of Johnny Depp, which is in the end a nice thing.

 
At 12:23, Blogger brian said...

His products are good for making s'mores around a campfire.

Monika, I have my meme letter J and R posted, take a left turn and follow the sun. I'll be waiting

 
At 13:20, Blogger Manchego said...

his mum's nickname was "Fanny," and his wife's was "Kitty."

 
At 14:16, Blogger Johnboy said...

I still like Willy Wonka !!!

Doug - genius, pure genius.

Off to California for 2 weeks. I will drop in again then my Queen. Happy blogging!

 
At 14:41, Blogger Minka said...

Móa, yes it will. I can´t wait to see it!

AP3, I donæt get the grossness of teh joke. What am I missing?

Doug, ahh...that is such a nice image the two of us, little toddlers hugging the same type of bear! Oh, I thought I was still writing under the flirting post, sorry!

ariel, chocolate to Johnny Depp...I sure follow those train of thoughts :)

Brian, J and R...interesting!

manchego...I believe that is true!

Johnboy...I am so jeallous. Have fun for me too:)

 
At 14:59, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

I do like your teddy bear! What are you going to do to him to fix him up?

All I can say is keep his chocolates away from this bohemian! Their teeny size makes for too many making their way into my mouth!

As for the letter F, done!

 
At 15:34, Blogger snavy said...

Mmmmmm... there is now a chocolate spa around his way.

 
At 16:28, Blogger Kyahgirl said...

aw, your teddy is very cute.
I didn't have any idea on your mystery until I read all the great clues!

 
At 18:41, Blogger Minka said...

Miz B. I´ll come visit you anr your "F" right after work!

Snav, is there? That certainly is some kinda spa I would like to attend :)

Kyahgirl...that is what they are for ;)

 
At 18:42, Blogger Logophile said...

Doug, you never cease to amaze me.
I am with AP3 on this one though, nice try with that cover story though.

I like your bear too.
But so naked, I am shocked

 
At 18:45, Blogger Minka said...

logo, I am working on him and will post a pic as soon as he is done. Yes...his nakedness intrigued me to post him as my HNT picture!

 
At 21:23, Blogger Doug said...

Logo, don't be so shocked. A Bear is a bear is abare.

I emailed this post to mom who says Toodie was darker and all brown.

Hey, has anyone been to Waking Ambrose today? I wonder what's going on over there.

 
At 22:56, Blogger Tim Rice said...

I believe his last name begins with a possessive feminine pronoun and the first syllable of his first name could remind one of where a farmer may take his grain to make flour or feed.

I'd be possessive of the chocolate, too, if I had it. ;)

 
At 23:00, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, no I haven´t. Just got home after a double shift and I canæt feel my feet. Anybody up for giving a footmassage let me know!

Tim, now that was a very good clue and so correct. Well done. You all are playing very nicely!

 
At 05:33, Blogger windowtomymind said...

Foot massage? My forte.

 
At 06:55, Blogger ariel said...

I still have my bear, too, it's yellow and from Africa, and is full of holes, so has to be treated carefully.

 
At 11:56, Blogger Minka said...

Ben, look who´s back! So how was teh journey and was it dnagerous?

ariel, I think everybody shoudl keep their first teddy. He is almost done and I hurt myself twice with a needle yesterday. So ariel, when are you opening your blog?

 
At 12:26, Blogger Sar said...

At 15:48, Blogger The Village Idiot said...

Well Minka I have no Idea who it is but let me just blow some "kisses" to you. I have relatives in his town.

 
At 19:12, Blogger birdwoman said...

That very same town now also boasts a fantastic (if expensive) amusement park, which has a store where you can buy all the candy products, including Twizzlers (yum!!)
