Onnicle Challenge – 2

This next one’s the brainchild of Achyut Nayak, one of the most twisted minds from the Onamography creative team. Legend has it that the first word to come out of his mouth as a kid was – floccinaucinihilipilification. Later on he moved to the regular vocab…ma-ma, pa-pa etc.

OnniClue: The onnicle below hides the names of 10 Nobel prize winners in literature.

Onnicle 2:
Samuel Cortez invented the first Naval long gun. His prototypes would burst into flames and the fire would char old Sam’s eyebrows leaving the ship in terrible shape. On receiving a telegram from the king of Spain he mounted his new invention on his ship and joined an armada to the Pacific. The sight of the Gun terrified the natives of the grasslands and Sam the conquistador island hopped his way across the Isles single handledly enslaving everyone over 50. Later realizing that the telegram had meant “Gold” not “Old”, he undertook another voyage to return the elders to the natives and rob them of their gold.

On his death bed he called in his son Albert to light candles and read from the Gideons Bible. “Son”, he said “I now realize how ill I am”. His obsession with refining gold ingots had taken a toll on his health. He had tried everything from melting them down to sending them to Europes finest finishing schools.

After his death, Albert ran downtown’s only bar ‘Citrus’, selling drinks to broadway actors. Even during the depression the Cortez family lead a lavish lifestype. A typical dinner consisted of Lobster Thermidor, hand picked truffles, smoked spam ukranian style, soup made from weaver nests and braised bear-claws done traditionally in the Ming way of cooking. He drank vodka and tonic and drove a classic white morris on weekends.

His son Sam Jr, ashamed of the family’s past, became an artist and drew oleanders and lilacs on greeting cards. These cards used rice paper and soy ink and were edible.
