Re: Rogue 774 - Lots of Clues!

Feta and Gary H. each have some correct answers. Is anyone else going to play?
Here are some more hints. Remember, the puns are all on the names of high tech companies. Those companies may make computers, printers, telephones, or the components for them.

All the solutions are one word puns, except #6 is two words and #2 and #3 are each three letter abbreviations. The unpunned phrases are usually multiple words.

1. What the doctor did after the track star's surgery. If you don't want to answer this, suture self!

2. What happens when I take a laxative. I take laxatives when I feel unbowelanced.

3. What they got in the kitchen when the large vat of meat sauce spilled. "Dude, that's not groovy, see?"

4. How the Hobbits learned of the situation at Isengard. Someone should go out on a limb on this.

5. How people in Chicago travel to the Loop. If you think subway, you are on the wrong track.

6. How you let your spouse get lots of stuff into your luggage. Carley was really good at this.

7. What you take to get well. But not if you are aspirin to be all organic.

8. What is desired by ladies who take collagen injections. Or, what Oprah's counselor uses to talk.

9. What might happen when a man is no longer excited by a woman. Or, after the main event is over and he relaxes.

10. What your proctologist told you to do. Johnny Carson used to say his proctologist was Ben Dover. Similar idea.

11. To whom did Solomon show his treasures? To which queen did he show favor?

12. What happens when you are depressed? Or a different pun on the same name: what happens if you are an savvy buyer?

13. How you act when you don't want to be noticed. "They are watching! Act BLANK"

14. What might you call it if your ears hurt after hearing an airplane break the sound barrier? Or refer to  a fast hedgehog's sore feet.

15. What the usher in a theatre gives you if you talk loudly. Or the librarian in a library would give you or tell you this.

16. What else did the piano player in Casablanca do?  Lots of piano players do this, but this pun only works for the one in Casablanca.

17. "How did the race car driver die, Dad?" "He died horribly BLANK (4 words unpunned, 1 word punned)

18. Where does salt water pour into a canal? What is the name of the last lock in a canal?

19. What do you use to get into Sarah's apartment? How do you you unlock the door of Sarah?

20. In dictatorships, foreign aid goes less to people and blank blank blank. In kingdoms, people give less respect to commoners and blank to blank.

Only Feta has guessed so far, with no hits.
Here is your first clue: all the puns are on names of high-tech companies.

Some of these are extremely easy and some are likely to stump everyone. As is often the case, discovering the theme will make it much easier.
