Eating White

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

Eating white is what I mostly do
If quick enough, a fruit and some things blue

When you see pink, sky blue, orange, or red
It would be wise to turn my yellow head

In a dark room with blue walls
I run from the ghosts that roam the halls

What am I?




What Next?

Aug 11, 2005

I was a Pacman fanatic back in the 80s but I never, ever thought of that!! Course, it's been over twenty years since i played, so guess it was stored in some distant, inaccessible neurons.

mikey38*
Aug 11, 2005

I didn't get it either, but that's because its so esoteric that you pretty much have to live video games to get it.

My guess was Ms PacMan.
Its been a long time .... but I didn't think PacMan has Yellow Head (does he?) And I though Ms PacMan had a Yellow ribbon??
Taking a trip back in time to 80s...

I thought the sun... but the sun as the answer doesn't make sense with the rest of the riddle (which I never thought of.) All I thought was, "The sun is yellow." good one! I play pacman and yet I can't get it... going in my faves

Wow. Definitely one of my favourites! I've never really played Pacman (Braingle version), but even if I did I don't think I would have guessed it. Keep the brilliant riddles coming!

Pacman, never got into it. Although my daughter sure loved it.

Aug 12, 2006

Totally Awesome teaser! Here, I am an young man from the 70's, so I recall video and pre-computer games. But, a bit of coffee helped awaken my mind. TY! Ready for some more.
wizkid**

That is tooo cool. I play pacman all the time & I never thought of that.

I am from pre-Pacman era, so I didn't get this teaser. My sons were avid players so I'm familiar with the game, sort of anyways.

Great teaser eventhough I had no clue!!!

I love PacMan, but it's been a few too many years since I played last! Well, at least that's my excuse for not getting the answer!

i used to play pacman with my kids all the time but in sure didn't think of it here. great teaser give us some more like that and i might solve one

Really cute! I didn't get it, and like many others I love Pacman!
labsmith*um*
Aug 12, 2006

Really hard. I've never played any kind of Pacman so didn't have a chance but tried hard. Considered odd birds,maybe some electric toy vehicles that have a problem with deep blue shades, and my favorite was an automatic room vacuum. I know a lot of them are round and made to have a facelike area. Maybe it has trouble with deep blue and eats blueberries when it runs over them. I do like the riddle.

Aug 12, 2006

lmao! i think this might have been the second time i saw this teaser, and i still missed it. i thought it was the sky...

You have an excellent one, Thanks for teasing my brain.
QrystalAca*
Aug 13, 2006

DOHHHHH!!!!!

I actually printed out the teaser, left it around my house for the weekend, and several people were pondering it... nobody really had any ideas though.

Then today, I was moseying around Braingle, and I played a bunch of games. It didn't even occur to me that I played one where I was a yellow head in a dark room with blue walls, eating white and fruit and some things blue....

*SIGH!*
vlermaAus*
Aug 15, 2006

Me too, you got me! Great teaser tho. Played it once or twice a long time ago but was expecting that answer. Good job!

Aug 15, 2006

Reminds me of being 6 and fretting about getting down off an elephant. I had no notion that "down" was fluffy feathers.
avonmaAus*
Aug 12, 2009

I didn't grow up playing pacman, so I didn't have a clue.
catfood99tus*
Aug 12, 2009

loved it! i thought it could be the sun, but it doesn't eat fruit.

Guess my brain is full today because I would've never thought of it! Great teaser!

Aug 12, 2009

About three times more clues than you needed. Could have been short and sweet with just the first two lines.
CommodityAus*
Aug 12, 2009

I REALLY DIDNT GET THIS ONE GREAT JOB VERY DIFFICULT AND FUN
doeheadAus*
Aug 13, 2009

Never ever played these types of games, so I had no clue as to what this was about!!
auntiesisAus*
Aug 13, 2009

Totally lost. I guess I'm from the wrong generation to think of pac-man.
thebrain789tus*
Nov 14, 2010

I agree with catfood.

For people who think they are in the wrong generation for Pac-Man: It's right here on Braingle!

Did you guys know the names of the ghosts? The red one is Blinky, the pink one is Pinky, the blue one is Inky, and the orange one is Clyde.
jaycr*us*
Aug 12, 2012

Clever, got the answer but I had to read it a couple of times.
Babe*
Aug 12, 2012

Not everyone plays pacman so it was not good for all. I am not alone on this one as I read what others have said also.
bestgirl*
Aug 12, 2012

I'm with Babe on this one. It's a "either you know it or you don't" kind of riddle. I don't play Pacman.
thecatladycac**
Aug 12, 2012

"Either you know it, or you don't" - but I'll add: "or you SHOULD HAVE known it!" I played pac man LOTS - years ago, and with a little more thought, may have figured it out. But you stumped me! Really good teaser - I enjoyed it (especially when I looked at the answer!)
Babe*
Aug 12, 2012

To catladycac...Is it possible that you think all of us were brought up in families who could afford such toys? We did not have pacman period so why SHOULD we have known the answer??? Get real!
thecatladycac**
Sep 03, 2012

Sorry, Babe - I was referring to MYSELF that I should have known it - no offense to anyone else!! I wasn't brought up with those toys either - I am somewhat older, but there was an arcade next to the grocery store where I used to shop, where every weekend afternoon you could get in for $1 and play all of the games all afternoon without putting in any money - much cheaper than a movie, and to me, much more fun! Again, my apologies for any misunderstanding!
