What am I?

Hint:

The last clue is only missing some key facial features

Hint 2:

Each line refers to a somewhat different definition of the answer

Are you

Head & Shoulders (Shampoo brand)

I probably won't blind you, but it certainly won't be pleasant

Getting shampoo in your eyes isn't nice, Head and Shoulders is especially painful

The merger of a leader and global mass supporters

Leader (Head) + supporters (Shoulders) (reference to idiom Carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders)

Oft followed doubly by a joint and a set of ten

(Intended Answer) Reference to Head Shoulders Knees (joint) and Toes (set of ten) the children's rhyme
(Original answer) You have a head on your shoulders which is followed by a joint (elbow) and a set of ten (10 fingers)

Hint:

The rest of the rhyme is Eyes and Ears and Mouth and Nose

  • $\begingroup$ This is the correct answer, though your explanation for the last clue is wrong, and the your explanation for the global mass supporters is a bit off $\endgroup$ May 24 '16 at 17:32

    $\begingroup$ I bet Eyes and Ears and Mouth and Nose would help, though. $\endgroup$ May 24 '16 at 17:40

I think you're

a flame coming out of a lighter.

I probably won't blind you, but it certainly won't be pleasant

Looking directly at the flame of a lighter tickles the eye, without hurting much.

The merger of a leader and global mass supporters

Maybe related to using a lighter in a concert

Oft followed doubly by a joint and a set of ten

The flame can be used to light up a joint, around a set of teens.

Are you...

A hand?

I probably won't blind you, but it won't be pleasant.

A slap to the face, maybe?

The merger of a leader and global mass supporters

A leader (elbow) and global mass supporters (fingers)

Oft followed doubly by a joint and a set of ten

Joint (elbow) and a set of ten (10 fingers, with 5 fingers on each hand)

Are you....

A smart phone screen, displaying facebook specifically?

I probably won't blind you, but it certainly won't be pleasant

checking your screen at night isn't literally blinding, but quite unpleasant, especially with the facebook color scheme

The merger of a leader and global mass supporters

A smart phone could connect a public figure with all of their followers through social media, especially through facebook

Oft followed doubly by a joint and a set of ten

Hitting the "follow" button on the screen by moving some joint in your body, with your ten fingers "following" as in being next to or behind, the screen. The phone's screen can also be referred to as its face, and "facial features" could be a nice hint towards additional facebook "features" or functions other than following.
