So is this some kind of steganography?

I wrote a Java program which can decode the example given on the Wikipedia page, and tried it with different parameters. Didn't get anything meaningful out of it though.

Since you can hide a message in a picture in many different ways (the article lists more than a dozen methods), trying out all of them would be a whole damn lot of work... Neutral

It's very helpful to understand the pun.

I investigated very carefully the png stream and found nothing Sad I also tried analyzing the raw pixel values and many other ideas, without success. Is it possible to solve this without understanding the pun? I'm not a native Englishman, so it's very hard for me to interpret this hint. Can google help me? (maybe "Lucy" is some character from movie or something?) Should I try to speak loud the pun?


--- EDIT ---
Ok, I understand the title Very Happy Nice idea Wink (google ftw)
Is "The gem is not what you want." some kind of wordplay too?

Hm, which pun? Diamonds/briolettes is not really a pun, unless maybe one mumbled very incomprehensibly Wink

Perhaps you mean "The jam is not what you want"? Strawberry Fields Forever! Very Happy

Well, I see a pun, but it hasn't helped me… it suggested a technique, and that technique has yielded some interesting patterns, but nothing concrete.

I really have no idea what's supposed to be the pun here. Neutral
Not being a native speaker does not help, obviously.

Reading the wikipedia article (even in german) may help you to find the technique.
But, as laz0r wrote, the second part is much harder.

EDIT: @laz0r: You have to see the bigger picture, literally.

Does it have anything to do with the fact that they were L.S.D. consumers? And following the same pattern could solve this?
