I never heard of rainbow bread. I imagined it to be some kind of

they did it, or what it tasted like. In my bafflement and complete ignorance
of multi-colored bread I asked "wtf?" If my phraseology offended you, I
apologize!


Since I had never heard of multi-colored bread and wondered if such a
thing even existed (apparently it doesn't—you say it's a brand name), I
wondered if you were punning on something that I just didn't get and that it
wasn't really a public GUESS at all but rather a pun of some sort. Hence my
asking the question rather than my saying, "Tsk tsk—public guess."

Answer #1: Rainbow bread was a very famous bread company between 70's-90's

Answer #2: it's called an accident

Question #1: How do you, "Pass a smile along" when you begin with "wtf"?

Re the guess "rainbow bread," I don't think we would consider bread to be a dairy product.  Try again.

Feta #63 Bingo and Reveal

Charles was the first to respond with the cheese I wanted: Emmenthaler or Emmental. This is the primary variety of the family we call Swiss Cheese.

The pun I looked for was "Human Taller", but Charles' solution of "Indian Tall" works for me as well.

Charles, you own Feta #64.


In the classic western "Cowboys and Aliens" * an Indian brave ambushes an alien. When asked how he thought he could beat him in a fight, the native american replied: 
"Alien Short; Blank Blank". What cheese did his listeners think he referred to, and why?

Don't reply all: send guesses to bill.crider at gmail.com




*Yes, it is a real movie and a good one at that! It stars Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford. I highly recommend it. Watch this clip:http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi2899811353?ref_=tt_pv_vi_aiv_2

Stan,

   Like all the F-Riddles to date, there should be no necessity whatsoever to follow any particular theme.  The goal always has been quickies.  An average of 3-4 per day is a reasonable goal (we actually have hit as many as 8-10 in a day when things are going well).

    Aloha,

In some case, the author has had to give clues as ti where to find the answer and how to recognize it. Or the riddle is retired and the author has to try again. At the rate we are going, about 2 to 3 riddles per week, we will finish this set sometime in April or May.

We should be averaging 8 to 12 riddles per week (3 to 4 a day) and we would complete about 4 sets a year.

I would like to suggest, if the rest of you agree,that we expand FETA Riddles to include all dairy products and not just cheese. Riddles about milk, cream, butter, yogurt, dairy desserts, etc, would be on subject, and we all will be having more fun.

Your responses would be appreciated.
