Twenty Questions


[Click for a larger, more welcoming view.]

I found this postcard between two books today. I’d forgotten I ever had it. I like the sentiment, which seems to me fitting for the start of a college semester.

This postcard has, however, an ulterior motive. It’s a piece of advertising. Can you guess what for? Welcome to what I suspect will be a pretty quick game of Twenty Questions. Leave your best questions in the comments. Play early, play often.

August 26: My wife Elaine came closer in offline play: Alcohol? Yes. Clear? No. Brown? Yes. Bourbon? No. Scotch? Yes. But she couldn’t get the brand. Barnaby has the answer in the comments: it’s an advertisement for Johnnie Walker. Specifically, Black.

Sid Meier's Civilization?

Michael Leddy said...

No, not that.

Michael Leddy said...

You might want to ask about the kind of thing it’s advertising.

Gunther said...

Oh – maybe it's about writing postcards and letters.

Michael Leddy said...

I like that thought, but no, it’s not.

Marzek said...

A hotel.

Michael Leddy said...

No, not a place of any kind.

Anything to do with Kenneth Clark?

Johnnie Walker?

Elaine said...

Is it something we view?

Michael Leddy said...

Barnaby has it: it’s a postcard for Johnnie Walker Black. I'll post the writing side after I wake up. (It’s early here.)
