Something connects these images:

Little finger

Gold nuggets

Rubber band ball

Dog Scratching

Electrical wire


What is the word, and what are the connections?

    $\begingroup$ So it's a visual riddle of pictures - but it's not a rebus? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I was going to post an answer tying it all to games of thrones but had trouble coming up with a connection for rubber band ball and drumsticks. $\endgroup$ Apr 12, 2017 at 4:37
  • $\begingroup$ @n_palum It looked like rebus might fit based on the tag description but it doesn't seem to fit definitions of a rebus found elsewhere. I wouldn't know myself. $\endgroup$ Apr 13, 2017 at 12:35

    $\begingroup$ I had just been asking for clarification mostly, I wasn't necessarily saying it was a rebus - and since then I have been told these are in fact not rebus puzzles and visual/riddle fit these fine. $\endgroup$

Chicken Little

Chicken nuggets

Rubber chicken

Chicken scratch

Chicken wire

Chicken drumsticks

    $\begingroup$ @L.K. That's not a valid excuse. You only know about things you eat? Pffff. Would you have used the same excuse if the answer was "a brick", or "football stadium"? img.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeed-static/static/2015-10/16/11/enhanced/… $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ for your third one, switch the word order to create a more idiomatic phrase. $\endgroup$ Apr 11, 2017 at 17:40

    $\begingroup$ @Marius +1 because brilliantly logical rants that put down daft people and whiney herbivores at the same time deserve +1s $\endgroup$ Apr 12, 2017 at 7:04

I have an alternate interpretation for part of it

Hand: Chicken Fingers
Wires: Chicken Strips (It's stripped wire)

But then again

maybe I'm just hungry


little finger, gold nugget, rubber band, dog, wire, Chinese chopsticks … chinese olympic team?
They are little, lots of gold, elastic (gymnastics), china is known for eating dogs, working together as team (you need all wires to turn on something) and mainly chinese

Partial Answer

What I got was

"A promise (pinky finger) is a precious (gold nuggets) and powerful (electric cord) thing (chopsticks)"

..Dog scratching and Rubber Ball din't fit my aforementioned quote.. so -_-

    $\begingroup$ If your answer doesn't fit, maybe put #Partial Answer at the top of the post so people know that it's only partial and can improve it for you? Also, can you put the important parts of your answer in spoilers (>! at the start of each line)? Thanks! $\endgroup$
