Help! Can you tell me where am I?
If you don't come soon, it'll be a bye-bye!
It's hard to breathe, it's hard to walk
And I met some citizens who can talk!

First, Steven Spielberg, who seems a bit yellow
He is quite attractive and merry
Also, Paul Scholes, who lives a bit low
He looks pointless and lazy

The rich Edward Kennedy and his child, Phil Kessel
Also I met a karate master, Simon Cowell
And the grumpy old Savielly Tartakower, who's quite musical
With the famous Sir Ferguson, his big rival

Also Sarah Palin, the most evil
Yet she never get his job done still
Then Pablo Picasso with his boat
It seems that he drives a lot!

Oops, I almost forgot something very important
Googling the names above is forbidden
Because they are not the actual names, really
But can you just tell me what is this city?

P.S. :

Sorry if one of the people mentioned gets insulted; but I met someone like you down here!

    $\begingroup$ Sounds like Manchester to me(because Paul Scholes and Sir Alex Ferguson). I am sure there is something else that will confirm what the answer is, though $\endgroup$ – Sid Jul 12 '17 at 7:12

You are in Bikini Bottom

Why did I think so?

For the first stanza, you hinted not being able to walk or breathe.

Underwater

Also, from the way you word "Citizens can talk!"

It makes it sound like they aren't suppose to talk.

In order of the initial letters of bolded names:

Spongebob Squarepants - is yellow
Patrick Star - lives under a rock (lives a bit low)
Eugene Krabs and his daughter Pearl Krabs
Sandy Cheeks - literally a Karate Master
Squidward Tentacles - known to be very grumpy and plays the clarinet
Squilliam Fancyson - in one or more episode is known to be his rival (the squid with a unibrow)
Sheldon Plankton - the villain in Spongebob Squarepants
Poppy Puffs - Spongebob's driving teacher

  • $\begingroup$ HA! The initials are the same as the characters... Nice. Would never have gotten that. +1 $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jul 12 '17 at 7:23

    $\begingroup$ I knew this was easy! Would accept it later once more people view (and hopefully upvote) the riddle! NB: #KembalikanSpongebob #GlobalTV $\endgroup$ – William Nathanael Jul 12 '17 at 7:39
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah I got a bit lucky correlating yellow and the initials SS. Btw, really love how you make your puzzles rhyme and sensible. Always looking forward to your next puzzle! @WilliamNathanael $\endgroup$ – bolt997 Jul 12 '17 at 8:02

    $\begingroup$ @WilliamNathanael Is there a good reason not to immediately accept an answer that's totally correct? Just from your comment it seems like you're trying to inflate the question (which might be fine - I'm just curious) $\endgroup$ – Samthere Jul 12 '17 at 12:14

    $\begingroup$ @Samthere It's fairly common practice to not immediately accept answers as it discourages other users from reading/viewing the puzzle. $\endgroup$ – n_plum Jul 12 '17 at 12:25
