Below you will find a listing of 10 (count ‘em, TEN) short riddle-ish conundrums. Each contains a pair of descriptions or definitions intended to lead you to a particular word or phrase. Each couplet is closely related, in that the proper answers will be phonetically identical, yet be comprised of distinctly different word(s). In order to score a complete kill on each, you must provide a reasonable version of both suggested variants.

As is often the case, I have provided a “sample” in the form of the first pair which is numbered “zero.” Be the first provide me with all, or most, of the required words/phrases and you will win the honor of composing and hosting Rogue #992 next weekend. There is not time limit on this one and I very well may offer some clues to the clueless, so please don’t fall asleep on me. - Gary Hallock
