I arrive home to a note from my friend. It is not signed from anyone, it just has these pictures at the bottom.

Ahh, okay this is from my friend, Astor. He's a bit strange. The note says he wants me to get something from the store, but again all he has are these images.

What does Astor want me to get?

To address a few comments, the lack of information regarding the images was part of the intention.

Hint:

I won't give the word associated with the image because I think it will make it too easy.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks for the typo find, and yes I had never used images before wasn't sure what those were for. @Pheo However, these images aren't meant to have a description with them. Part of the riddle is figuring out what the image is meant to be. $\endgroup$ – Colton Apr 30 '18 at 19:52
  • $\begingroup$ @Colton "Image of dog sled" "Image of Memo" $\endgroup$ – FreezePhoenix Apr 30 '18 at 19:57
  • $\begingroup$ Does the note contain any written text (outside of any images)? $\endgroup$ – floraline Apr 30 '18 at 21:50

I think Astor wants you to buy

Noodles

"Astor" may have come from

AppleS
sToOp
puRse
...taking the letters first from the outside-then 1 place in from each end-then 2 places in from each end.

Applying this to the second set of pictures we have

NemO
nOboDy
deLEte (picture is a "delete" icon)
dog Sled

So, I think that "Astor" came from

A pples
St oop
Or ganizer

Now I need to apply that to the rest. Is this the right track?

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ First two words are correct, but the third one is incorrect. Also, the way you derived "Astor" from the words is on the right track, but not totally correct. $\endgroup$ – Colton May 1 '18 at 17:09

Not a complete answer but is this to do with...

Bad lip reading?

I'm guessing this because...

"Apples door" mouthed silently looks like your friend's name "Astor". I think with the first three picture you are showing us how you realised who the note is from.

But I can't figure out:

what, if anything "Nemo nobody bin husky" could look like. Tried miming it to my wife and she just thinks I'm (more) crazy.

    $\begingroup$ +1 for creative answer, but not quite on the right track unfortunately. Although, you are correct in your reasoning about the 3 images. This will be key in solving this. $\endgroup$ – Colton Apr 30 '18 at 22:03

Astor wants you to get

Fish for nobody to eat but to throw to the dogs.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ So I don't think you're on the right track with this one. All of the images in the question will be important in determining what Astor wants from the store. $\endgroup$ – Colton Apr 30 '18 at 22:07

This is a (very) partial answer:

He wants something from the Apple Store (Apples, Door)
