Who do you associate with these words/sounds?:

  • Oath
  • This sound
  • Hell (as a name for something)
  • Scoff
  • Cuisine

The answer is a (fairly well-known) person.

I think it's

Gordon Ramsay

Oath

As in "sworn" - Wordplay on swearing, as in offensive language (which he is known for)

Bleep sound

Censoring the offensive language he's known for

Hell

His show Hell's Kitchen

Scoff

1) Scoff as in mock, 2) scoff as in eating greedily (british) 3) (clarified by OP) scoff can also simply mean food (british)

Cuisine

Well, he's a chef

The title: Crazy hard; essentially futile?

First letters spell "Chef"

  • $\begingroup$ How the **** did you get that so fast. Amazing. As a sidenote, scoff also means food, and cuisine means kitchen. $\endgroup$ Jan 5 at 20:07

    $\begingroup$ Seemed fairly intuitive. Yeah, I didn't mention that meaning of cuisine so I can sneak in a "duh" comment ;) Will add that second def of scoff to the answer, thanks! I admittedly had to google other definitions of scoff (and food didn't immediately come up) since that was the clue I didn't fully get :) $\endgroup$ Jan 5 at 20:15
  • $\begingroup$ Google swearing, hell and food... I have to be honest your last puzzle was waaaayyyy too hard without hints, this one is very easy, somewhere inbetween would be ideal. $\endgroup$ Jan 5 at 20:31
