"Rubio" is Spanish for "blond," but contrary to Clairol's former advertising slogan, I don't think Rubio is having much fun lately.

Politics this year is very much like bridge—all the other players keep getting Trumped.

The Donald must have picked the GOP because he's an elephant—he knows how to Trump it.

Marco Rubio’s recent comment about the size of Donald Trump’s hands makes me wonder this. Is this perhaps the reason Trump is such a firm believer in “Mini-fist Destiny?” 

The notion that the size of a person’s hands has any relationship to the size of his other appendages is a pure phallus, see?

What a great opportunity this would have been for Trump to make a obscene gesture. I’m sure Rubio would have been able finger out that message.

Well, of course he knows how to Trump it - he's a blowhard and it is clear from his comments that he has a brass neck.

The theory goes that cowboys were prone to sing as a way to reassure nervous cattle and lull them into a sense of security so they would be less inclined (lean beef?) to stampede. While many of these traditional songs are known and readily recognized today for what they are, many other popular songs that we know and cherish actually began as cowboy tunes but were later modified to appeal to a broader audience. 

One lonesome cowboy had a favorite heifer that he considered to be more of a “pet” than mere livestock. So strong was his attachment to this cow that he brought her along with him on every cattle drive, just for the companionship. In song professed his intense (possibly perverse) affection for this particular bovine. The title of the tune he sang about his favorite cow was modified only slightly to become a major hit for the Mills Brothers in the mid 1940s. Over the years the song has been recorded by a wide variety of other artists, none of whom seem to have a clue that it was originally written as a romantic ode to a cow. In 7 words, name that tune.

Re: ROGUE RIDDLE #805: Monday Evening Update - We have a winner!

Chris Gross <ca_12_dozen@...>
 

WE HAVE A BINGO!!

FINAL STANDINGS:

Lars ended this fiasco (!!) with a clean sweep, with BINGO's on 1, 2,  3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and finally 10.  I am thinking that maybe, this ROGUE set a record for the most clues given!! ;^)  At any rate, Lars will have the entire week to create ROGUE RIDDLE #806 (that is the correct number).  Thanks to all who took a stab at this, including:
Stan who had BINGO's on 1, 3, and a partial on 5 and 8
Cyn who had BINGO's on 1 and 6
Gary who had BINGO's on 1 and 8 - got close on 10 and tried 4
Lila who had a BINGO on 6 and a partial on 9
Jim who had a BINGO on 1
So here is the "reveal" for each riddle:



1.       What is the most holy day of the week on Satan’s calendar? BLANK (looking for a one word answer) SINDAY /SUNDAY.  I also accepted Satyrday / Saturday once Jim replied to the group!  Fryday was another popular choice . . .
2.       What you still do – as a wife – after your hubby’s had a vasectomy? (looking for a 4 word phrase, punned word is the third one) "Love your FALLOW man / love your FELLOW man"
3.       What you call the place where sea horses attend a school of higher learning? BLANK BLANK (this is NOT a homonym, per se) HIPPO CAMPUS / HIPPOCAMPUS   I had a few comments about the origin and that a Hippo is not a sea horse; I did change the clues to reflect this, but I did find a definition of hippocampus that showed the word's origin; it comes from Hippo = horse and kampus = sea monster.  More than 1 got this correct so I guess the clues helped
4.       What you call an illegal person employed to do all kinds of work around the tepee? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) FAKE TOTEM / FACTOTUM   I did change the clue on this to better explain the pun; 
5.       What you call a full rounded arachnid after it’s had a bite? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) SOFT TICK / ZAFTIG  In German / Yiddish, the "g" is pronounced "ick"
6.       What does a person who hates eating at a Jewish Deli and a Rastafarian have in common? BLANK BLANK/BLANK (looking for both the punned and un-punned answer) DREAD LOX / DREADLOCKS  Rastafarians generally sport hairdos that are called dreadlocks. I'm not Jewish, but I do like lox . . . and bagels . . . and maybe even a schmear
7.       What were the gardeners doing after the Christ child was born? (looking for a 9 word phrase, punned word is the 7th word) "They were keeping watch over their PHLOX - at night".  Of course the shepards were keeping watch over their FLOCKS.  I thought it funny that Stan sent me an email saying his BIBLE had no book called "Luke"!  But this might be the first time where the same Bible/New Testament reference/answer was used in back to back ROGUE RIDDLES . . .
8.       What might Major Anthony Nelson order if he’s buying Jeannie a drink? (looking for a 3 word answer, with the 1st word being the pun)  DJINN and Tonic (GIN and Tonic).  I was originally trying get TUNIC in for Tonic; Lars came up with this clue:
Looking at his wife, Major Nelson immediately thought of this drink. DJINN AND TUNIC
9.       What do you call the condition that a US GI has when faced with doing another 8-legged tour in the Mideast? BLANK IRAQNOPHOBIA / ARACHNOPHOBIA
10.   What do you call a long-winded poem about an electric appliance which is used to add flavor to meat? (looking for a 5 word answer with multiple punned words) RHYME OF THE ENGINED MARINATOR/MARINADER  /  RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER
 
Cheers,














Re: ROGUE RIDDLE #805: Monday Afternoon Update #2 - More clues

Chris Gross <ca_12_dozen@...>
 

Lars nailed #2 . . .

Lars is clearly in the lead now, with BINGO's on 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and a partial on 4Stan - who declined hosting the next rogue - has BINGO's on 1, 3, and a partial on 5 and 8Cyn - who also declined hosting the next rogue - has BINGO's on 1 and 6Gary has BINGO's on 1 and 8 - got close on 10 and tried 4, but has been MIA since his first stabLila has a BINGO on 6 and a partial on 9Jim has a BINGO on 1
only riddles left unsolved are: 4 and 10.  So let's revisit those two and see if a couple of final clues can help:#4 - Lars is so close I almost feel as if I shouldn't reveal more . . . in my last clue, I said "In Native American tradition, they do not have "family trees", they have these. A spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe"   Native Americans revere and depict these spirits on a BLANK BLANK.

The first BLANK word is one of the words in the punned homonym.  The other word  in the punned homonym is not "real"

#10 - Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote the poem that is the basis for my punned homonym.  Word one of the five word phrase is a true homonym for the first word in Coleridge's work; words two and three of the phrase are the same as those in Coleridge's work; words 4 and 5 are punned homonyms.  In word #4, think of what electricity runs; in word #5, think of what is done to meat to make it tender

I need to clarify that in Gary's limerick riddle from last week, the Bible/Scripture/Gospel reference was one that he used as a pun (of sorts).  As I've been told, Trump used the term "Two Corinthians" as opposed to II Corinthians.  And as one of the guessers also told me, there IS no II Luke in his Bible.  He then also mentioned that there is no LUKE in his BIBLE!!  So for those whose book of worship contains no New Testament, try Googling Luke 2:8 and the answer will be clear as a bell

  This one is wide-open, folks!  We had another player, Stan, join the "fray" with a correct answer to #3.  Lars returned to Bingo #9.  But no one is sprinting toward the lead.  The current standings are:
Lars - 3 correct (he had #1 before Jim and I replied to the group; #8 and #9)Gary - 2 correct (#1 and #8)Lila, Al, Stan and Cyn close on their heels
Here are another group of clues to #6-10:
What does a person whohates eating at a Jewish Deli and a Rastafarian have in common? BLANK BLANK/BLANK (looking for both the punned and un-punned answer)  Letter count for the first two punned words is 5/3; letter count for the third is 10. Another clue is what is a characteristic feature of a Rastafarian?  What might you notice about him?
7.       What were the gardeners doing after the Christ child wasborn? (looking for a 9 word phrase, punned word is the 7th word)  Or perhaps I should have asked what the florists were doing after the Christ child was born?  Regardless, get out your Bible and go to the book and chapter that was featured in Gary's limerick-based riddle last week.  I believe Verse 8 will give you the necessary information . . . New Testament, BTW In Gary's ROGUE, he alluded to a faux pas that Donald Trump made when referring to scripture.  He used it in his limerick. Two Luke if I recall correctly. All you have to do now is look in your Bible or go to google.  Couldn't make this any easier! 2:8
8.       What might MajorAnthony Nelson order if he’s buying Jeannie a drink? (looking for a 3 word answer, with the 1st word being the pun) Letter count for this one is 5/3/5.  If you haven't googled already, Major Nelson and Jeannie were characters in a 1960's TV show called "I Dream of Jeannie" The drink is one we enjoy year-round here in Florida, but in the northern climes, it is usually more of a summertime cocktail.  Punned word is related to the role in which Barbara Eden played
9.       What do you callthe condition that a US GI has when faced with doing another 8-legged tour inthe Mideast? BLANK So, the clues are in the word "8-legged", and "Mideast".  Letter count for the punned word is 12; letter count for the non-punned word is 13 The "condition" is one of severe hesitation or perhaps even angst
10.   What do you call a long-winded poem about an electricappliance which is used to add flavor to meat? (looking for a 5 word answer with multiple punned words) BLANK of the BLANK BLANK is what I am after.  Each of the blanks is a homonym of a title.  Clues seem obvious to me; Gary was pretty close - clues are "long-winded poem"; electric appliance and what adds flavor to meat - also adds tenderness, some say The poem I am parodying is perhaps the longest poem known to man.  The first word (homonym) is indeed what makes a poem unique from other prose
Here is the third set of clues for #2-5:
#2 - When a man is "fertile" he has the ability to "seed" an egg; when he is not - much like a barren field - he is BLANK.  The phrase can also be an explanation or description of the Golden Rule Think of what feeling a wife has for her husband - hopefully - at all times.  This is the first word of the phrase.  The word "man" is the fourth word of the phrase
#3 - This may be the largest of the sea horses (technically speaking), but is found in fresh water the non-punned word also relates to a part of the human brain
#4 -  There is a word (8 letters in length) that when defined means, someone who does all kinds of work; a jack-of-all-trades; a handyman.  I am at the "boundary" of using that word to form a two word homonym which loosely could describe someone in a Native American community who's illegal - let's change the clue to:  What would you call an illegal person who is posing as a spirit, and who works diligently for the tribe? In Native American tradition, they do not have "family trees", they have these. A spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe.#5 - There are all kinds of arachnids - there are many German words - find the German word that means "well-rounded" and it will hopefully help you solve this.  This same word is also Yiddish, and could mean plump and juicy.  If a woman is plump, overweight, and bosomy, in Yiddish they refer to her as BLANK.  Get this word and you should be able to figure out the arachnid I'm searching, and the punny homonym

Thanks to all who've offered their guesses; the game is still on, so please join in!  Clues to #6-10 will come tonight.

In the meantime, some additional clues to #1-5:

#1 - Some theologians say that Satan was one of God's cherubs - prior to mankind's creation - and became the rebellious one.  If you consider that God chose one day of the week in which to rest and/or worship, you might consider that Satan would also choose the same day, but rename it to suit his needs#2 - When a man is "fertile" he has the ability to "seed" an egg; when he is not - much like a barren field - he is BLANK.  The phrase can also be an explanation or description of the Golden Rule#3 - This may be the largest of the sea horses (technically speaking), but is found in fresh water#4 -  There is a word (8 letters in length) that when defined means, someone who does all kinds of work; a jack-of-all-trades; a handyman.  I am at the "boundary" of using that word to form a two word homonym which loosely could describe someone in a Native American community who's illegal - let's change the clue to:  What would you call an illegal person who is posing as a spirit, and who works diligently for the tribe?#5 - There are all kinds of arachnids - there are many German words - find the German word that means "well-rounded" and it will hopefully help you solve this.  This same word is also Yiddish, and could mean plump and juicy.

  Well, considering last week's riddle launched late, and this one early, it hasn't changed the participation a whole lot. So far, only one person, Lars, has offered any guesses. He has 1 correct answer. Is this too tough? Not interesting enough? 
Well, to keep things moving, here are my first set of clues for the first five riddles. I will offer the second set late tomorrow if necessary. Good luck, and please join in!! 
CG


1.       What is the most holy day of the week on Satan’s calendar? BLANK (looking for a one word answer) Chose one of the days of the week and change one letter. It'll make perfect sense. Not a true homonym but really close
2.       What you still do – as a wife – after your hubby’s had a vasectomy? (looking for a 4 word phrase, punned word is the third one) The letter count for the four words are 4/4/6/3. The punned word (6 letters) is the same letter count as the non-punned word, except the second letter is different. Think of what a man has none of once he's been snipped
3.       What you call the place where sea horses attend a school of higher learning? BLANK BLANK (this is NOT a homonym, per se) The two words, when put together, are the same. For example, SAND MAN = sandman. The merged word has a different meaning, though. Letter count is 5/6 for the two words; 11 for the single. Think of a single word that is a synonym for sea horse. Also, think of what you call the general place where the school of higher learning is. 
4.       What you call an illegal person employed to do all kinds of work around the tepee? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) The letter count for the punned homonym is 4/5. The word I used for the pun/homonym is 8 letters and is defined as a handyman
5.       What you call a full rounded arachnid after it’s had a bite? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) Letter count for the punned words are 4/4. The word I used to create the pun is 6 letters in length and is German. The other clue I can offer is to focus on the full-rounded descriptor

  Well, here it is . . . the one our Learless Feeder said, "I can't wait to see what he (Chris) comes up with!"  Which, Gary, I took as a huge complement! (pun intended)
So, without additional fanfare, squiggly lines, avatars, emojis or any other computer characters, I present to you 10 questions.  Each has one correct answer to the question, posed in the form of a pun.  Most are based around homonyms, with the exception of #3.  For example, I might ask:  "What would you say to the apprentice baker when he asked his boss about a certain recipe?  Answer:  He's on a "knead to know" basis.  As you slog threw, and put you're brain to ewes, yule cum up with the write answer!  
Please proffer any guesses to me at:  ca_12_dozen@... . . . DO NOT HIT REPLY OR YOU WILL BE BANISHED TO GITMO!!

I will be pretty lenient, and will offer clues as necessary.  Since we are launching today, my hope is that this fiasco will be all over by midnight, Monday, GMT -5, or sooner, if a BINGO is scored.  I have my mom visiting, so I will be AFC from time to time, but I will have the iPhone with me so I should be able to respond quickly.  Clues will appear Sunday and Monday, if necessary.  Enjoy!

Re: ROGUE RIDDLE #805: Monday Afternoon Update and more clues

Chris Gross <ca_12_dozen@...>
 

Lars is clearly in the lead now, with BINGO's on 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and a partial on 4Stan - who declined hosting the next rogue - has BINGO's on 1, 3, and a partial on 5 and 8Cyn - who also declined hosting the next rogue - has BINGO's on 1 and 6Gary has BINGO's on 1 and 8 - got close on 10 and tried 4, but has been MIA since his first stabLila has a BINGO on 6 and a partial on 9Jim has a BINGO on 1

I need to clarify that in Gary's limerick riddle from last week, the Bible/Scripture/Gospel reference was one that he used as a pun (of sorts).  As I've been told, Trump used the term "Two Corinthians" as opposed to II Corinthians.  And as one of the guessers also told me, there IS no II Luke in his Bible.  He then also mentioned that there is no LUKE in his BIBLE!!  So for those whose book of worship contains no New Testament, try Googling Luke 2:8 and the answer will be clear as a bell

  This one is wide-open, folks!  We had another player, Stan, join the "fray" with a correct answer to #3.  Lars returned to Bingo #9.  But no one is sprinting toward the lead.  The current standings are:
Lars - 3 correct (he had #1 before Jim and I replied to the group; #8 and #9)Gary - 2 correct (#1 and #8)Lila, Al, Stan and Cyn close on their heels
Here are another group of clues to #6-10:
What does a person whohates eating at a Jewish Deli and a Rastafarian have in common? BLANK BLANK/BLANK (looking for both the punned and un-punned answer)  Letter count for the first two punned words is 5/3; letter count for the third is 10. Another clue is what is a characteristic feature of a Rastafarian?  What might you notice about him?
7.       What were the gardeners doing after the Christ child wasborn? (looking for a 9 word phrase, punned word is the 7th word)  Or perhaps I should have asked what the florists were doing after the Christ child was born?  Regardless, get out your Bible and go to the book and chapter that was featured in Gary's limerick-based riddle last week.  I believe Verse 8 will give you the necessary information . . . New Testament, BTW In Gary's ROGUE, he alluded to a faux pas that Donald Trump made when referring to scripture.  He used it in his limerick. Two Luke if I recall correctly. All you have to do now is look in your Bible or go to google.  Couldn't make this any easier! 2:8
8.       What might MajorAnthony Nelson order if he’s buying Jeannie a drink? (looking for a 3 word answer, with the 1st word being the pun) Letter count for this one is 5/3/5.  If you haven't googled already, Major Nelson and Jeannie were characters in a 1960's TV show called "I Dream of Jeannie" The drink is one we enjoy year-round here in Florida, but in the northern climes, it is usually more of a summertime cocktail.  Punned word is related to the role in which Barbara Eden played
9.       What do you callthe condition that a US GI has when faced with doing another 8-legged tour inthe Mideast? BLANK So, the clues are in the word "8-legged", and "Mideast".  Letter count for the punned word is 12; letter count for the non-punned word is 13 The "condition" is one of severe hesitation or perhaps even angst
10.   What do you call a long-winded poem about an electricappliance which is used to add flavor to meat? (looking for a 5 word answer with multiple punned words) BLANK of the BLANK BLANK is what I am after.  Each of the blanks is a homonym of a title.  Clues seem obvious to me; Gary was pretty close - clues are "long-winded poem"; electric appliance and what adds flavor to meat - also adds tenderness, some say The poem I am parodying is perhaps the longest poem known to man.  The first word (homonym) is indeed what makes a poem unique from other prose
Here is the third set of clues for #2-5:
#2 - When a man is "fertile" he has the ability to "seed" an egg; when he is not - much like a barren field - he is BLANK.  The phrase can also be an explanation or description of the Golden Rule Think of what feeling a wife has for her husband - hopefully - at all times.  This is the first word of the phrase.  The word "man" is the fourth word of the phrase
#3 - This may be the largest of the sea horses (technically speaking), but is found in fresh water the non-punned word also relates to a part of the human brain
#4 -  There is a word (8 letters in length) that when defined means, someone who does all kinds of work; a jack-of-all-trades; a handyman.  I am at the "boundary" of using that word to form a two word homonym which loosely could describe someone in a Native American community who's illegal - let's change the clue to:  What would you call an illegal person who is posing as a spirit, and who works diligently for the tribe? In Native American tradition, they do not have "family trees", they have these. A spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe.#5 - There are all kinds of arachnids - there are many German words - find the German word that means "well-rounded" and it will hopefully help you solve this.  This same word is also Yiddish, and could mean plump and juicy.  If a woman is plump, overweight, and bosomy, in Yiddish they refer to her as BLANK.  Get this word and you should be able to figure out the arachnid I'm searching, and the punny homonym

  No one has offered a guess since early this afternoon.  As I said when I launched, I was hoping to conclude this by midnight tomorrow.  We have the FETA Riddles resuming on Tuesday, so there is no reason to prolong this any further.  Cheers.

  As of 3:00 EST, the standings are:
Gary with correct guesses on #1 and #8; guessed at #4 and #10 (very close to a correct guess on 10) - 2 total
Lars with a correct guess on #8; guessed at #1, 3 and 5 - 1 totalLila with a correct guess on #6 - 1 totalAl with a guess on #1 - 0 total
Thanks to all who've offered their guesses; the game is still on, so please join in!  Clues to #6-10 will come tonight.

In the meantime, some additional clues to #1-5:

#1 - Some theologians say that Satan was one of God's cherubs - prior to mankind's creation - and became the rebellious one.  If you consider that God chose one day of the week in which to rest and/or worship, you might consider that Satan would also choose the same day, but rename it to suit his needs#2 - When a man is "fertile" he has the ability to "seed" an egg; when he is not - much like a barren field - he is BLANK.  The phrase can also be an explanation or description of the Golden Rule#3 - This may be the largest of the sea horses (technically speaking), but is found in fresh water#4 -  There is a word (8 letters in length) that when defined means, someone who does all kinds of work; a jack-of-all-trades; a handyman.  I am at the "boundary" of using that word to form a two word homonym which loosely could describe someone in a Native American community who's illegal - let's change the clue to:  What would you call an illegal person who is posing as a spirit, and who works diligently for the tribe?#5 - There are all kinds of arachnids - there are many German words - find the German word that means "well-rounded" and it will hopefully help you solve this.  This same word is also Yiddish, and could mean plump and juicy.

  Well, considering last week's riddle launched late, and this one early, it hasn't changed the participation a whole lot. So far, only one person, Lars, has offered any guesses. He has 1 correct answer. Is this too tough? Not interesting enough? 
Well, to keep things moving, here are my first set of clues for the first five riddles. I will offer the second set late tomorrow if necessary. Good luck, and please join in!! 
CG


1.       What is the most holy day of the week on Satan’s calendar? BLANK (looking for a one word answer) Chose one of the days of the week and change one letter. It'll make perfect sense. Not a true homonym but really close
2.       What you still do – as a wife – after your hubby’s had a vasectomy? (looking for a 4 word phrase, punned word is the third one) The letter count for the four words are 4/4/6/3. The punned word (6 letters) is the same letter count as the non-punned word, except the second letter is different. Think of what a man has none of once he's been snipped
3.       What you call the place where sea horses attend a school of higher learning? BLANK BLANK (this is NOT a homonym, per se) The two words, when put together, are the same. For example, SAND MAN = sandman. The merged word has a different meaning, though. Letter count is 5/6 for the two words; 11 for the single. Think of a single word that is a synonym for sea horse. Also, think of what you call the general place where the school of higher learning is. 
4.       What you call an illegal person employed to do all kinds of work around the tepee? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) The letter count for the punned homonym is 4/5. The word I used for the pun/homonym is 8 letters and is defined as a handyman
5.       What you call a full rounded arachnid after it’s had a bite? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) Letter count for the punned words are 4/4. The word I used to create the pun is 6 letters in length and is German. The other clue I can offer is to focus on the full-rounded descriptor

  Well, here it is . . . the one our Learless Feeder said, "I can't wait to see what he (Chris) comes up with!"  Which, Gary, I took as a huge complement! (pun intended)
So, without additional fanfare, squiggly lines, avatars, emojis or any other computer characters, I present to you 10 questions.  Each has one correct answer to the question, posed in the form of a pun.  Most are based around homonyms, with the exception of #3.  For example, I might ask:  "What would you say to the apprentice baker when he asked his boss about a certain recipe?  Answer:  He's on a "knead to know" basis.  As you slog threw, and put you're brain to ewes, yule cum up with the write answer!  
Please proffer any guesses to me at:  ca_12_dozen@... . . . DO NOT HIT REPLY OR YOU WILL BE BANISHED TO GITMO!!

I will be pretty lenient, and will offer clues as necessary.  Since we are launching today, my hope is that this fiasco will be all over by midnight, Monday, GMT -5, or sooner, if a BINGO is scored.  I have my mom visiting, so I will be AFC from time to time, but I will have the iPhone with me so I should be able to respond quickly.  Clues will appear Sunday and Monday, if necessary.  Enjoy!

Re: ROGUE RIDDLE #805: Monday Morning Update and more clues

Chris Gross <ca_12_dozen@...>
 

This one is wide-open, folks!  We had another player, Stan, join the "fray" with a correct answer to #3.  Lars returned to Bingo #9.  But no one is sprinting toward the lead.  The current standings are:
Lars - 3 correct (he had #1 before Jim and I replied to the group; #8 and #9)Gary - 2 correct (#1 and #8)Lila, Al, Stan and Cyn close on their heels
Here are another group of clues to #6-10:
What does a person whohates eating at a Jewish Deli and a Rastafarian have in common? BLANK BLANK/BLANK (looking for both the punned and un-punned answer)  Letter count for the first two punned words is 5/3; letter count for the third is 10. Another clue is what is a characteristic feature of a Rastafarian?  What might you notice about him?
7.       What were the gardeners doing after the Christ child wasborn? (looking for a 9 word phrase, punned word is the 7th word)  Or perhaps I should have asked what the florists were doing after the Christ child was born?  Regardless, get out your Bible and go to the book and chapter that was featured in Gary's limerick-based riddle last week.  I believe Verse 8 will give you the necessary information . . . New Testament, BTW In Gary's ROGUE, he alluded to a faux pas that Donald Trump made when referring to scripture.  He used it in his limerick. Two Luke if I recall correctly. All you have to do now is look in your Bible or go to google.  Couldn't make this any easier! 2:8
8.       What might MajorAnthony Nelson order if he’s buying Jeannie a drink? (looking for a 3 word answer, with the 1st word being the pun) Letter count for this one is 5/3/5.  If you haven't googled already, Major Nelson and Jeannie were characters in a 1960's TV show called "I Dream of Jeannie" The drink is one we enjoy year-round here in Florida, but in the northern climes, it is usually more of a summertime cocktail.  Punned word is related to the role in which Barbara Eden played
9.       What do you callthe condition that a US GI has when faced with doing another 8-legged tour inthe Mideast? BLANK So, the clues are in the word "8-legged", and "Mideast".  Letter count for the punned word is 12; letter count for the non-punned word is 13 The "condition" is one of severe hesitation or perhaps even angst
10.   What do you call a long-winded poem about an electricappliance which is used to add flavor to meat? (looking for a 5 word answer with multiple punned words) BLANK of the BLANK BLANK is what I am after.  Each of the blanks is a homonym of a title.  Clues seem obvious to me; Gary was pretty close - clues are "long-winded poem"; electric appliance and what adds flavor to meat - also adds tenderness, some say The poem I am parodying is perhaps the longest poem known to man.  The first word (homonym) is indeed what makes a poem unique from other prose
Here is the third set of clues for #2-5:
#2 - When a man is "fertile" he has the ability to "seed" an egg; when he is not - much like a barren field - he is BLANK.  The phrase can also be an explanation or description of the Golden Rule Think of what feeling a wife has for her husband - hopefully - at all times.  This is the first word of the phrase.  The word "man" is the fourth word of the phrase
#3 - This may be the largest of the sea horses (technically speaking), but is found in fresh water the non-punned word also relates to a part of the human brain
#4 -  There is a word (8 letters in length) that when defined means, someone who does all kinds of work; a jack-of-all-trades; a handyman.  I am at the "boundary" of using that word to form a two word homonym which loosely could describe someone in a Native American community who's illegal - let's change the clue to:  What would you call an illegal person who is posing as a spirit, and who works diligently for the tribe? In Native American tradition, they do not have "family trees", they have these. A spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe.#5 - There are all kinds of arachnids - there are many German words - find the German word that means "well-rounded" and it will hopefully help you solve this.  This same word is also Yiddish, and could mean plump and juicy.  If a woman is plump, overweight, and bosomy, in Yiddish they refer to her as BLANK.  Get this word and you should be able to figure out the arachnid I'm searching, and the punny homonym

  No one has offered a guess since early this afternoon.  As I said when I launched, I was hoping to conclude this by midnight tomorrow.  We have the FETA Riddles resuming on Tuesday, so there is no reason to prolong this any further.  Cheers.

  As of 3:00 EST, the standings are:
Gary with correct guesses on #1 and #8; guessed at #4 and #10 (very close to a correct guess on 10) - 2 total
Lars with a correct guess on #8; guessed at #1, 3 and 5 - 1 totalLila with a correct guess on #6 - 1 totalAl with a guess on #1 - 0 total
Thanks to all who've offered their guesses; the game is still on, so please join in!  Clues to #6-10 will come tonight.

In the meantime, some additional clues to #1-5:

#1 - Some theologians say that Satan was one of God's cherubs - prior to mankind's creation - and became the rebellious one.  If you consider that God chose one day of the week in which to rest and/or worship, you might consider that Satan would also choose the same day, but rename it to suit his needs#2 - When a man is "fertile" he has the ability to "seed" an egg; when he is not - much like a barren field - he is BLANK.  The phrase can also be an explanation or description of the Golden Rule#3 - This may be the largest of the sea horses (technically speaking), but is found in fresh water#4 -  There is a word (8 letters in length) that when defined means, someone who does all kinds of work; a jack-of-all-trades; a handyman.  I am at the "boundary" of using that word to form a two word homonym which loosely could describe someone in a Native American community who's illegal - let's change the clue to:  What would you call an illegal person who is posing as a spirit, and who works diligently for the tribe?#5 - There are all kinds of arachnids - there are many German words - find the German word that means "well-rounded" and it will hopefully help you solve this.  This same word is also Yiddish, and could mean plump and juicy.

  Well, considering last week's riddle launched late, and this one early, it hasn't changed the participation a whole lot. So far, only one person, Lars, has offered any guesses. He has 1 correct answer. Is this too tough? Not interesting enough? 
Well, to keep things moving, here are my first set of clues for the first five riddles. I will offer the second set late tomorrow if necessary. Good luck, and please join in!! 
CG


1.       What is the most holy day of the week on Satan’s calendar? BLANK (looking for a one word answer) Chose one of the days of the week and change one letter. It'll make perfect sense. Not a true homonym but really close
2.       What you still do – as a wife – after your hubby’s had a vasectomy? (looking for a 4 word phrase, punned word is the third one) The letter count for the four words are 4/4/6/3. The punned word (6 letters) is the same letter count as the non-punned word, except the second letter is different. Think of what a man has none of once he's been snipped
3.       What you call the place where sea horses attend a school of higher learning? BLANK BLANK (this is NOT a homonym, per se) The two words, when put together, are the same. For example, SAND MAN = sandman. The merged word has a different meaning, though. Letter count is 5/6 for the two words; 11 for the single. Think of a single word that is a synonym for sea horse. Also, think of what you call the general place where the school of higher learning is. 
4.       What you call an illegal person employed to do all kinds of work around the tepee? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) The letter count for the punned homonym is 4/5. The word I used for the pun/homonym is 8 letters and is defined as a handyman
5.       What you call a full rounded arachnid after it’s had a bite? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) Letter count for the punned words are 4/4. The word I used to create the pun is 6 letters in length and is German. The other clue I can offer is to focus on the full-rounded descriptor

  Well, here it is . . . the one our Learless Feeder said, "I can't wait to see what he (Chris) comes up with!"  Which, Gary, I took as a huge complement! (pun intended)
So, without additional fanfare, squiggly lines, avatars, emojis or any other computer characters, I present to you 10 questions.  Each has one correct answer to the question, posed in the form of a pun.  Most are based around homonyms, with the exception of #3.  For example, I might ask:  "What would you say to the apprentice baker when he asked his boss about a certain recipe?  Answer:  He's on a "knead to know" basis.  As you slog threw, and put you're brain to ewes, yule cum up with the write answer!  
Please proffer any guesses to me at:  ca_12_dozen@... . . . DO NOT HIT REPLY OR YOU WILL BE BANISHED TO GITMO!!

I will be pretty lenient, and will offer clues as necessary.  Since we are launching today, my hope is that this fiasco will be all over by midnight, Monday, GMT -5, or sooner, if a BINGO is scored.  I have my mom visiting, so I will be AFC from time to time, but I will have the iPhone with me so I should be able to respond quickly.  Clues will appear Sunday and Monday, if necessary.  Enjoy!

Re: ROGUE RIDDLE #805: clues to 6-10

Chris Gross <ca_12_dozen@...>
 

Here are some clues to riddles #6-10:

6. What does a person who hates eating at a Jewish Deli and a Rastafarian have in common? BLANK BLANK/BLANK (looking for both the punned and un-punned answer)  Letter count for the first two punned words is 5/3; letter count for the third is 10
7.       What were the gardeners doing after the Christ child was born? (looking for a 9 word phrase, punned word is the 7th word)  Or perhaps I should have asked what the florists were doing after the Christ child was born?  Regardless, get out your Bible and go to the book and chapter that was featured in Gary's limerick-based riddle last week.  I believe Verse 8 will give you the necessary information . . . New Testament, BTW
8.       What might Major Anthony Nelson order if he’s buying Jeannie a drink? (looking for a 3 word answer, with the 1st word being the pun) Letter count for this one is 5/3/5.  If you haven't googled already, Major Nelson and Jeannie were characters in a 1960's TV show called "I Dream of Jeannie"
9.       What do you call the condition that a US GI has when faced with doing another 8-legged tour in the Mideast? BLANK So, the clues are in the word "8-legged", and "Mideast".  Letter count for the punned word is 12; letter count for the non-punned word is 13
10.   What do you call a long-winded poem about an electric appliance which is used to add flavor to meat? (looking for a 5 word answer with multiple punned words) BLANK of the BLANK BLANK is what I am after.  Each of the blanks is a homonym of a title.  Clues seem obvious to me; Gary was pretty close - clues are "long-winded poem"; electric appliance and what adds flavor to meat - also adds tenderness, some say
 
No one has offered a guess since early this afternoon.  As I said when I launched, I was hoping to conclude this by midnight tomorrow.  We have the FETA Riddles resuming on Tuesday, so there is no reason to prolong this any further.  Cheers.

As of 3:00 EST, the standings are:

Gary with correct guesses on #1 and #8; guessed at #4 and #10 (very close to a correct guess on 10) - 2 total
Lars with a correct guess on #8; guessed at #1, 3 and 5 - 1 total
Lila with a correct guess on #6 - 1 total
Al with a guess on #1 - 0 total

Thanks to all who've offered their guesses; the game is still on, so please join in!  Clues to #6-10 will come tonight.

In the meantime, some additional clues to #1-5:

#1 - Some theologians say that Satan was one of God's cherubs - prior to mankind's creation - and became the rebellious one.  If you consider that God chose one day of the week in which to rest and/or worship, you might consider that Satan would also choose the same day, but rename it to suit his needs
#2 - When a man is "fertile" he has the ability to "seed" an egg; when he is not - much like a barren field - he is BLANK.  The phrase can also be an explanation or description of the Golden Rule
#3 - This may be the largest of the sea horses (technically speaking), but is found in fresh water
#4 -  There is a word (8 letters in length) that when defined means, someone who does all kinds of work; a jack-of-all-trades; a handyman.  I am at the "boundary" of using that word to form a two word homonym which loosely could describe someone in a Native American community who's illegal - let's change the clue to:  What would you call an illegal person who is posing as a spirit, and who works diligently for the tribe?
#5 - There are all kinds of arachnids - there are many German words - find the German word that means "well-rounded" and it will hopefully help you solve this.  This same word is also Yiddish, and could mean plump and juicy.

I will be available to monitor your guesses if you send them to:  ca_12_dozen@...

Well, considering last week's riddle launched late, and this one early, it hasn't changed the participation a whole lot. So far, only one person, Lars, has offered any guesses. He has 1 correct answer. Is this too tough? Not interesting enough? 

Well, to keep things moving, here are my first set of clues for the first five riddles. I will offer the second set late tomorrow if necessary. Good luck, and please join in!! 

CG

1.       What is the most holy day of the week on Satan’s calendar? BLANK (looking for a one word answer) Chose one of the days of the week and change one letter. It'll make perfect sense. Not a true homonym but really close
2.       What you still do – as a wife – after your hubby’s had a vasectomy? (looking for a 4 word phrase, punned word is the third one) The letter count for the four words are 4/4/6/3. The punned word (6 letters) is the same letter count as the non-punned word, except the second letter is different. Think of what a man has none of once he's been snipped
3.       What you call the place where sea horses attend a school of higher learning? BLANK BLANK (this is NOT a homonym, per se) The two words, when put together, are the same. For example, SAND MAN = sandman. The merged word has a different meaning, though. Letter count is 5/6 for the two words; 11 for the single. Think of a single word that is a synonym for sea horse. Also, think of what you call the general place where the school of higher learning is. 
4.       What you call an illegal person employed to do all kinds of work around the tepee? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) The letter count for the punned homonym is 4/5. The word I used for the pun/homonym is 8 letters and is defined as a handyman
5.       What you call a full rounded arachnid after it’s had a bite? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) Letter count for the punned words are 4/4. The word I used to create the pun is 6 letters in length and is German. The other clue I can offer is to focus on the full-rounded descriptor

Well, here it is . . . the one our Learless Feeder said, "I can't wait to see what he (Chris) comes up with!"  Which, Gary, I took as a huge complement! (pun intended)

So, without additional fanfare, squiggly lines, avatars, emojis or any other computer characters, I present to you 10 questions.  Each has one correct answer to the question, posed in the form of a pun.  Most are based around homonyms, with the exception of #3.  For example, I might ask:  "What would you say to the apprentice baker when he asked his boss about a certain recipe?  Answer:  He's on a "knead to know" basis.  As you slog threw, and put you're brain to ewes, yule cum up with the write answer!  

Please proffer any guesses to me at:  ca_12_dozen@... . . . DO NOT HIT REPLY OR YOU WILL BE BANISHED TO GITMO!!

I will be pretty lenient, and will offer clues as necessary.  Since we are launching today, my hope is that this fiasco will be all over by midnight, Monday, GMT -5, or sooner, if a BINGO is scored.  I have my mom visiting, so I will be AFC from time to time, but I will have the iPhone with me so I should be able to respond quickly.  Clues will appear Sunday and Monday, if necessary.  Enjoy!

Re: ROGUE RIDDLE #805 - update #2

Chris Gross <ca_12_dozen@...>
 

Well, Jim, I never looked at the copy list of your guess, so egg on my face, too, for replying back to the entire group.  I guess everyone gets #1 as a freebie.  Sinday / Satyrday / some even guessed FryDay, but I didn't accept that one . . . I suppose given that it's the Devil we're talking about here, he probably does have more days that are "sinful" . . . Oh, and Cyn, too, sent in her reply of SatyrDay before Jim's faux pas, so she is also in the mix, but regrets not being able to host the next Rogue. . .

Updated standings are:  Gary, Lars and Lila with 2 each, Cyn with 1, and Al with 1 (the freebie).  Technically, Gary is in the lead as he had already bingo'd #1 correctly with Sinday . . .

I will be AFC for awhile; I will try to look at any other replies in about 3-4 hours from now.  Happy guessing . . . Did everyone get the new clues? 

Now that Jim is banished to Gitmo - and I am in the next cell - please do not reply with guesses to this message; please reply to me personally at:

Re: ROGUE RIDDLE #805: first set of additional clues - more clues to 1-5 and standings

Chris Gross <ca_12_dozen@...>
 

As of 3:00 EST, the standings are:

Gary with correct guesses on #1 and #8; guessed at #4 and #10 (very close to a correct guess on 10) - 2 total
Lars with a correct guess on #8; guessed at #1, 3 and 5 - 1 total
Lila with a correct guess on #6 - 1 total
Al with a guess on #1 - 0 total

Thanks to all who've offered their guesses; the game is still on, so please join in!  Clues to #6-10 will come tonight.

In the meantime, ome additional clues to #1-5:

#1 - Some theologians say that Satan was one of God's cherubs - prior to mankind's creation - and became the rebellious one.  If you consider that God chose one day of the week in which to rest and/or worship, you might consider that Satan would also choose the same day, but rename it to suit his needs
#2 - When a man is "fertile" he has the ability to "seed" an egg; when he is not - much like a barren field - he is BLANK.  The phrase can also be an explanation or description of the Golden Rule
#3 - This may be the largest of the sea horses (technically speaking), but is found in fresh water
#4 -  There is a word (8 letters in length) that when defined means, someone who does all kinds of work; a jack-of-all-trades; a handyman.  I am at the "boundary" of using that word to form a two word homonym which loosely could describe someone in a Native American community who's illegal - let's change the clue to:  What would you call an illegal person who is posing as a spirit, and who works diligently for the tribe?
#5 - There are all kinds of arachnids - there are many German words - find the German word that means "well-rounded" and it will hopefully help you solve this.  This same word is also Yiddish, and could mean plump and juicy.

I will be available to monitor your guesses if you send them to:  ca_12_dozen@...

Well, considering last week's riddle launched late, and this one early, it hasn't changed the participation a whole lot. So far, only one person, Lars, has offered any guesses. He has 1 correct answer. Is this too tough? Not interesting enough? 

Well, to keep things moving, here are my first set of clues for the first five riddles. I will offer the second set late tomorrow if necessary. Good luck, and please join in!!

1.       What is the most holy day of the week on Satan’s calendar? BLANK (looking for a one word answer) Chose one of the days of the week and change one letter. It'll make perfect sense. Not a true homonym but really close
2.       What you still do – as a wife – after your hubby’s had a vasectomy? (looking for a 4 word phrase, punned word is the third one) The letter count for the four words are 4/4/6/3. The punned word (6 letters) is the same letter count as the non-punned word, except the second letter is different. Think of what a man has none of once he's been snipped
3.       What you call the place where sea horses attend a school of higher learning? BLANK BLANK (this is NOT a homonym, per se) The two words, when put together, are the same. For example, SAND MAN = sandman. The merged word has a different meaning, though. Letter count is 5/6 for the two words; 11 for the single. Think of a single word that is a synonym for sea horse. Also, think of what you call the general place where the school of higher learning is. 
4.       What you call an illegal person employed to do all kinds of work around the tepee? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) The letter count for the punned homonym is 4/5. The word I used for the pun/homonym is 8 letters and is defined as a handyman
5.       What you call a full rounded arachnid after it’s had a bite? BLANK BLANK (this IS a punned homonym) Letter count for the punned words are 4/4. The word I used to create the pun is 6 letters in length and is German. The other clue I can offer is to focus on the full-rounded descriptor

Well, here it is . . . the one our Learless Feeder said, "I can't wait to see what he (Chris) comes up with!"  Which, Gary, I took as a huge complement! (pun intended)

So, without additional fanfare, squiggly lines, avatars, emojis or any other computer characters, I present to you 10 questions.  Each has one correct answer to the question, posed in the form of a pun.  Most are based around homonyms, with the exception of #3.  For example, I might ask:  "What would you say to the apprentice baker when he asked his boss about a certain recipe?  Answer:  He's on a "knead to know" basis.  As you slog threw, and put you're brain to ewes, yule cum up with the write answer!  

Please proffer any guesses to me at:  ca_12_dozen@... . . . DO NOT HIT REPLY OR YOU WILL BE BANISHED TO GITMO!!

I will be pretty lenient, and will offer clues as necessary.  Since we are launching today, my hope is that this fiasco will be all over by midnight, Monday, GMT -5, or sooner, if a BINGO is scored.  I have my mom visiting, so I will be AFC from time to time, but I will have the iPhone with me so I should be able to respond quickly.  Clues will appear Sunday and Monday, if necessary.  Enjoy!

Re: ROGUE RIDDLE #805 - update

Chris Gross <ca_12_dozen@...>
 

Hello all!  I was out this afternoon, but still was able - through my iPhone - to answer Lars (who is the only one playing at the moment) on his guesses.  Lars is very, very close to scoring on at least two of the riddles, and came up with a plausible, yet incorrect answer on another.  He has guessed at four of the riddles, total. 

As I mentioned when I launched the ROGUE, I will provide additional clues to the group as a whole tomorrow, and again Monday if necessary.  If you take a stab and are incorrect, I will provide you with a "private" clue, as I have to Lars on his four guesses.  I will be monitoring the computer this evening and will periodically check to see who else is playing.  Bring on your answers!!
