OK, kinda cool to have a launch on pi day. Here is the launch of the rogue.
Back in the previous century when I was attempting to contribute to Gary Hollock's newsletter "Pun Intended" he advised me that they usually punned on a word only once while I tended to take a word and beat it to death. Well here I go again. There is one key word in each of the parts of the riddle. Get it and everything becomes easy.
First with all answers or with the most by Wednesday 12:00 PM EDT gets the bingo.
Full credit requires both my contrived pun / and the real word.
