    I should mention, with Whoa Kitty, tiled elements (floor panels, shower tiles, etc..) will never be used as ‘object doubles’.

    Whoa Kitty 2:
    Cat stripes = Wolverine claws
    back chair piece = T-square fixing piece
    Guy’s hair = green grass on top of cassette player
    headphones = door knob
    Lamp arm = T-square arm
    Triangular ruler = design on blue basket
    Drawer handle = drawings red box cap

    Whoa Kitty 3:
    Telephone handset = shower nozzle
    Faucet knob = medicine bottle cap
    Soap = Falwan (lol) bottle
    Orange towel = yellow towel
    Belt buckle = cassette player front
    Brush = broom
    I am not sure about the 7th one. Could be the smilies or the pipe under the flushing tank = phone cord or the cat stripes = design of purple mat

    Division Math puzzle 1:
    S = 0
    E = 1
    T = 6
    A = 5
    M = 2
    U = 3
    3125 / 25 = 125

    Division Math puzzle 2:
    S = 0
    E = 1
    T = 6
    A = 5
    M = 2
    U = 3
    O = 8
    3300 / 125 = 26 remainder 50

    I was able to solve each puzzle separately. Only then I noticed that the variables are the same for both puzzles!

    Whoa Kitty #2:
    1. Joint by head of lamp = Joint on contraption attached to desk (for holding paper down?) <– I’m hoping this one is a legitimate duplication :/
    2. Doorknob = Headphone
    3. Straight-edge ruler = Bin under desk
    4. Plant = Boy’s hair
    5. Back of chair = Base of the paper-holer-thingy
    6. Drawer handle = Molding on wall
    7. Wolverine’s claws = Cat’s stripes

    Whoa Kitty #3:
    1. Shower head = Hairdryer (kinda looks like telephone, or vacuum…;)
    2. Left faucet knob = Cap on bottle in cabinet
    3. Soap = Shampoo bottle in cabinet
    4. Towel over shower = Towel in hamper
    5. Brush = Broom
    6. Belt buckle = Front of radio
    7. Cat’s stripes = Toilet seat cover

    I really like these puzzles – very cute and enjoyable.

    As for the statue, my initial impression was “indignation” or even “stubbornness”, but I feel like there are so many possibilities. I’m going mostly on the furrowed brow and scrunched up nose, which could even imply contempt or disgust. I’m eager to see what everyone else thinks…

    Have a good weekend, everybody!

    silence is extremely brittle.


    E*MA=MA, -> E=1
    A*MA=100+MA, -> MA=25
    this is enough to solve the rest

    all the letters had the same values as in Division#1!!
    I suppose this was intentional?

    Messerschmidt’s is a sad story. I could picture this character head as representing the artist as he looked back on his life. “If I close my eyes and try really hard, the bad things will go away and everything will be back to normal.”

    Wow. Lotsa stuff in one item.

    The riddle answer is: “silence”

    The division answers are:
    3125/25 = 125; 3300/125 = 26 r 50

    For Whoa Kitty #2, the differences are:
    1) Wolverine claws / Cat stripes
    2) Base of arm of drafting tool / Back of chair
    3) Doorknob / Headphones
    4) Plant / Hair
    5) Drawer pull / Edge of molding strip
    6) Joint (near bulb) on lamp / Joint on arm of drafting tool
    7) Artist’s triangle / Pattern on wastebasket

    For Whoa Kitty #3, the differences are:
    1) Cap on jar on top shelf / Faucet knob
    2) Green bottle on lower shelf / Bar soap in shower
    3) Telephone receiver / Shower head
    4) Tower in hamper / Towel on shower door
    5) Pushbroom / Hairbrush
    6) Belt buckle / Cassette deck
    7) Cat stripes / Pattern on toilet seat

    I also enjoyed the puzzle box puzzle, look forward to seeing the tougher ones to come.
