Rumors/Failed Theories:


The avatar has NOTHING TO DO WITH SOURCE CODES.
Snarkie NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE AVATAR. For some reason there is a rumor going around that Snarkie said it was right under our noses. SHE DID NOT!

No one has the avatar. This was confirmed by TNT in the ediotiral. Also, do not ask Snarkie, any other staff member, or TNT in general how to get the avatar. They won't tell *confirmed in ediotiral*


The avatar is not a random event, and is most likely not available from refreshing at any page. People have spent hours refreshing on bonju related pages,and after 2 years, someone would have stumbled upon the avatar.

The avatar is not related to the Chef Bonju Stamp, or the Shenkuu Stamp Album. They came out after the avatar! And think common sense - if it was from completing the Shenkuu stamp album, why would it be a chef bonju avatar, and not a stamp collector avatar?

The avatar is not a CG Plot prize. With all the thousands of users who have completed the plot, it would have been found.

If someone shows you a screenie of them with the avatar, do not believe it. Ask them to make it their active avatar. Screenies are easy to fake, check out my lookup (nickjames912_side3) for an example.

Getting a certain score in Kou-jong does not give the avatar. (Neither do eye of the storm, which came out after the avatar, or attack of the gummy dice, I'm not sure when this game came out).


Some people have found connections with the number 8. They are shown below:

1. Blumaroo has 8 letters
2. There are 8 stripes on Bonju's pot
3. The bonju shopkeeper says 'Good Luck', which has 8 letters
4. Cyodrake is 8 letters long
5. Kou-Jong is 8 letters long (counting the dash)
6. The avatar came out on 8/8/2006 (2+0+0+6=8)And it was released in year 8 on neopets
7. Culinary has 8 letters
8. Gummy Die has 8 letters
9. There are 8 CG crew members.
10. The word blumaroo appears 8 times in the news on 8/8/08 and the date of the avatar's release.
11. The Cyodrake's Gaze Logo has 8 spokes.
12. Adding up the digits in the price of the Pocket Cooking Pot in the hidden tower equals 8.
13. Bonju has 8 stripes on his hat.
14. (option value="8") Negg (/option) The negg's dropdown value is eight.
15. 8 items were released the day that bonju came out.
16. There are also 8 vowels in the words 'magical cooking vessel'
17. And in the comic, in the beggining, they keep saying the word "ate". We ate and ate and ate. ate = eight = 8?
Tried:
Visiting the MCV at 08:08:08 NST
Mixing a combo on 08:08:08 AM NST on blumaroo day

Perhaps the bonju avatar has something to do with the comic.


Hoban says "Yeah, let's see you laugh when I sail you into a storm." towards the start of every chapter. Something involving those words?


Hoban lands in a crate of apples (I believe). Something involving apples?


Bonju seems to enter an uncrontollable rage, was he posessed or something? =P


An old one, they seem to be eating some kind of fish, seems like sushi, along with rice, and spaghetti and meatballs. However so much has been tried with this I now doubt it is a clue.


Linae has a pandaphant poster, this is especially strange considering pandaphants were released september 12th, only 2 days before the plot was completely over with, which means the comic was made before pandaphants were released. However TNT has a habit of drawing things and not releasing them, they pandaphant was most likely created before-hand and put into the comic before they were relased. Still a possible clue.


Linae loses one of her kou-jong tiles, the Lost desert one. If it means anything, hoban and anshu we're arguing behind her at the time.


Bonju was sneaking a weapon out of the storeroom. He later goes on to say "Seems my best knife disappeared and I needed something to carve with.


Another old one that I'm doubting since there have been so many tests with it. Anyway they ate anchovy casserole.


Pink & Green Theory


Bonju is shown with pink and green stains. Sarah (bleepydude) has suggested mixing watermelon.


Bork Bork Bork

The Swedish Chef from The Muppet Show

had the catchphrase "Bork Bork Bork". This is said on the banner on Bonju's cooking pot page,

and may be connected to the avatar. Below are the recipes he made on the show. Any ideas?

Hot Sauce
Coconut
Banana Split
Squirrel Stew
Turtle Soup
Japanese Cake
Dough
Spaghetti
Hot Dogs
Frog Legs
Fish Chowder
Chicken in a Basket
Turkey (Part 1&2)
Swedish Meatballs
Pressed Duck
Eggs/Running Gag
Eggs
Donuts
Lobster-Bandidos
Flap Jacks
Salad ala Boom-Boom
Chocolate Mousse
Shenkuu Banners

The banners below WERE found in various parts of Shenkuu (until TNT re-did neopets layout and got rid of them!) The text below is what it says in the background of the image.


Cures For Better Health


Where Did This Come From


Warriors Find Strength


Maps Are So Fun


Fauna Means Animal


Reaching For The Moon


Bonju's Eyes Theory

bastet3940 has found bonju's eyes suspicious. Could she be on to something? =O The image below should show you her idea.




Liquid Theory

ghostboy0012 has found that concoction means "a mixture of different liquids". Try mixing liquids?


Master Something Different

The text on bonju's cooking pot page has the words master and something in italics. different and magical cooking vessel are in bold. Master something different? What could it mean?


Sculpting

I am a master culinary artist, after all!

Is what bonju says on his cooking pot page. Something regarding art? Perhaps mixing something to make a painting or sculpture? (whoever came up with this idea, neomail me so I can give you credit)


Explosions

Because Bonju's pot explodes from a bad combo, perhaps we need to prevent it from exploding? (suggested by gezouz)


Cleaning

Bonju is also very talented at cleaning.

^ Is the description on the Bonju Stamp. The stamp came out after the avatar though, but TNT may still be hinting at cleaning. Any Ideas from this?


Swedish

Because of the numerous connections between bonju and the swedish language, I've translated the culinary concoctions page to swedish, to look for any hidden clues. Note that there is no option for swedish on neopets.

Culinary Concoctions

You approach a rather surly looking orange Blumaroo. Judging village his clothing you guess he's the cook on this ship.

Another keep one's cool!? Ever since we countries here I've been bothered village countless visit. IN don't think it will ever end. He lets out a deep sigh. " in guess I'll husband the aunt perceive it while I'm here. IN am a mast culinary artist after all! "

He looks quite pleased joke himself doesn't he? In any case he begins to explain the wonders perceive the rather ordinary mysteries cooking weasel that sits promote you both.

This isn't fair any ordinary mysteries cooking weasel! " Ah. right. You see it can combine two or more items into something spectacular. joke my help , perceive course! IN substantial you've never seeing anything peer that promote!

Hmmm. You seem to recall something about a magic cooking po.

Hey! Are you catalogue? He snapshot you hind leg to actuality duck you forget what it was you were trying to remember. Anyway choose two or more items pious your inventory duck hand them over to me. I'll put them in the magic cooking weasel duck we'll see what comeback out. We have to pray careful though. There have been. incident but we won't talk about that. "

Choose items pious your inventory using the form amount. Husband sure each item ice difference. You Cannes mix two or more perceive the same item.
