Hot Potato

Question

Remember M.J. wasn't in 'eighty four.

__
what are you, now talking about.

Or perhaps which M.J. of fame had more.

__
let's discuss it, no need to shout.

If at first mistaken it can strike a nerve.

__
maybe hot, if red throughout.

For this I'm desparate you can now observe.

__
got the point? I have no doubt.

Hey Aeron, thanks for kicking this one off. I can certainly see where you got your answer but it is not the one I have in mind. Your answer would not really be relavent to at least one of the two "M.J."s referred to. Thanks again, and please revisit.

forgive me some of the lines I thought.

Surprisingly M.J. wasn't in 'eighty four.

what are you talking about.

Or perhaps which M.J. of fame was more. --Michael Jackson was hooked from heroine. and heroine is fame to drug addicts

let's discuss it, something to spout. --the heroine liquid coming out from the syringe

If at first misplaced it can strike a nerve. --injection

maybe hot, if orange throughout.

For this I'm desparate you can now observe. --desperation leads to addiction

got the point? I have no doubt.

i agree to justkickinback.

NBA or just basketball

nope, not it, but the person that led you to that is one of the two I'm referencing.

Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, Mary Jane. Still pondering further.

The two more specific ones are indeed the ones I am referencing.

By all means I welcome your explanatioin of your lines of thought. The riddle should be referring to two different M.J.s and the second one, which I think justkickinback and now you are referring to, definitely has no connection to your first guess (not that I have ever heard of).

FEET

What the...just kidding, I guess from a couple of lines I see where you are coming from and probably other parts of the riddle, too. Not it though MrsP.

Refer to Jordan not being the number one pick? So maybe the number one could have something to do with it.

Right reference but "one" is not relevant.

Pass Over

Off to lunch, back to guess more amazing guesses later -_-

maybe footballer Michael Johnson (1984).. football's red card, orange card.

Sorry for the delay, sometimes they expect me to work for my check. Sorry MrsP, a great guess but not it. Aeron, not him, or any person for that matter.

I have lil time (busy schedule)

First MJ's I thought of were Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson, and unsurprisingly those are it.

The first guess I had was basketball, because of the "orange throughout" line. But no relationship to Jackson.

So I don't have a guess, but I was making this reply anyway (despite being busier than a hell's highway busman, I am entitled to rests!) I just realized THERE ARE COLORS IN YOUR POST.

What color is this?

edit: Oh. It's just white.

MJ X 2 =

http://weblogs.balti...ichael_jac.htmlMichael Jordan and Michael Jackson, Jam Video

EDIT:sorry....did have to look up where i remebered them 2 together...IE "video"

Hey Jkb, need to steer you away from the two M.J.s. Gubdude made the correct reference to M.J. in the first line. The third line's connection to the answer is probably the most tenuous of them all. Sorry

does it have anything to do with a trailblazer? or maybe just a blazer, or fire?

no, nothing to do with those. your last guess was the closest so far but probably should not say that because the answer is more easily recognized elsewhere I think.

Hey yo DN - No relationship to the J in M.J. is needed. May give a hint as to the structure of the riddle in a bit if needed. Busy is good. And, yeah, the color is off white to just hide the underscores in order to indent every other line. No relevence to the riddle or answer.

Good guess MrsP but incorrect. Any relation to the two M.J.s is not directly relevant to the answer. Dont hate me, please.

Malice? It's almost a perfect anagram of Michael, and I think it fits lines 3 and 4, but not the last two.

Popsicle?

Surprisingly M.J. wasn't in 'eighty four. - This is the only line I don't get

__what are you talking about.

Or perhaps which M.J. of fame was more. - Michael Jordan was a Pop star.

__let's discuss it, something to spout. - Well, maybe this line too

If at first misplaced it can strike a nerve.

__maybe hot, if orange throughout. - When pressed to a nerve, something cold can feel hot. Popsicles can be any color.

For this I'm desparate you can now observe. - Desperate to have a dessert!

__got the point? I have no doubt. - Popsicles have a point.
