FATS Riddle #10

Lars Hanson
 

All,

    Herewith FATS Riddle #10:

<><><><><><><><><><><>

Jack Sprat's wife had rather well known eating habits.  Perhaps what is less well known is that she refused any soft food.  As far as she and everyone else was concerned, this was a BLANK BLANK rule.

Designed to fall fast, this F-Riddle began my fast so I’m dubbing this as “WINS DAY.” Middle-of-the-night Lars knocked it out in the wee-wee hours of the morning by providing the answer I sought…

Thank you for playing,

Always bring a canary with you when you enter

James Ertner
 

I once heard about a canary with a social disease … it had cherpes. It then developed feet trouble … and went to the chirpodist. Feeling depressed, it flew under a lawn mower … and became shredded tweet. And since then, no one’s heard a peep out of it.

 

Jim

===================
 

A cheep shot, One Sagan!  You should be careful lest someone tweet you the bird.  It is always safer to go back to one's roost, it seems.  Or go fishing-- for one's perch.

    Speaking of which, would that be from one's front perch or from the back perch?  If one is stoic about it, I guess it doesn't matter.

    Aloha,

        Lars
===========================

Everything a canary sings is tweetable. Several of his tweets, one after the other would be a Canary Row. I wonder if what a canary is really saying is, "Yello!"

Here I am One Sagan

ROGUE RIDDLE #811 - (BINGO & Summary)

gary hallock
 

BINGO & SUMMARY 

Very little activity since this morning’s updated. Other than a single exchange with Kirk Miller it could have been just another dull day on PUNY.  Then suddenly this afternoon, as predicted, Bill Crider came through with a worksheet that knocked out 75% on his first volley. Later in the evening he knocked out three more to wipe the slate for a clean kill. I have provided my preferred answer sheet below ….WAY BELOW…the accumulated clue trail. (SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM NOW)

We should expect Bill to host #812 sometime next week. 

Thank you for playing,

Gary Hallock

===================
Tuesday morning...Nothing more was heard yesterday from either Jim or Chris. Meanwhile Kirk Miller checked in with a few more kills, bringing his total up to 5. Also heard from were Alex R. and Charles W. but neither made a significant dent. I suspect the person who walks away with this one has not yet even begun his/her worksheet. Could this be you? 
Deadline is midnight CDT. This morning I have added letter counts for all 12 riddles. Not sure if this will be of much help to the otherwise clueless among us, but at least it’s a gesture of encouragement from me.

Gary Hallock

===================
Early worksheets came in from Jim Ertner and Chris Gross but their efforts yielded each only 2 clean kills each. An entry late last night from Kirk Miller placed him squarely in the lead with 3.5 kills and some progress toward several others. As you might suppose from the two examples I initially offered, these were presumed to be fairly simple riddles, but obviously I have failed to adequately demonstrate that to the reluctant regulars.

Inserted below each riddle this morning I have added some commentary that may be helpful to those who might still be willing to  enter the game. To further inspire you, I have also added two more example puns at the top of the list.

ROGUE RIDDLE #811 - Conflicts of Interest - Launched April 10, 2016 @ 2pm central daylight time

^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$


With the O.Henry Pun-Off just around the corner (May 7th) I have put my brain to work imagining up new categories to offer players in the PunSlingers competition. One fairly obvious topic prompt for punning has been right in front of me all along. I’m calling this week’s game CONFLICTS OF INTEREST. 

Below you will see a list of 12 enigmatic statements or questions. The proper answer to each of these will be either a name for some type of CONFLICT, or a word closely associated with CONFLICT. While this may, at first, seem like an overly broad field of play, I assure you every target word in this game will clearly and cleanly apply to the title topic.

Be the first to supply me with the most (or all) answers and you will win the honor of hosting RR #812 next weekend. Deadline for entries is midnight Tuesday CDT. 

^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$^%$

Example A. - Fencers sometimes will have a BLANK personality.    (DUEL / DUAL) 
Example B. - I have registered to compete in the O.Henry Pun-Off this year. I am so hungry for a victory I BLANK it.   (CONTEST) 
EXAMPLE C. - The pacifist hemmed up the legs of his cut-off jeans because he was reluctant to enter the BLANK.  (FRAY)
EXAMPLE D. - Because of the way their faces were made, the two rag dolls could never get along with each other. They were forever BLANK.  (BUTTON HEADS) 

1. - What fishermen use when they argue with hookers. (6 letters)
[Punning politicians will always fall for this line.]

2. - Nickname for the creek that runs behind Mr. Osmond’s house. (10 letters)
[If he wanted to dam up that creek he could invite over Ms. Shields.]

3. - How the cast members of Les Miserables jokingly refer to the section of the play where the French Revolution begins. - (The 4/3)
{You don’t need to know Broadway for this one, just read the story of the way the French revolted and insert it into a play on words.] 

4. - How the contrite goose felt after he’s been read the script for #3 - (Two words 7/4)
[Forget the oblique reference to #3. Apparently that goose ruffled someone’s feathers, so it’s little wonder he got BLANK BLANK]

5. - The trail boss got frustrated with his assistant who could never seem to properly hitch up the horses to the wagons. He frequently had to give him a WHAT?  - (Two words 6/7)
[Loosely speaking, how are horses connected to a wagon?]

6. - If you enter one of these, urine for a battle of wets. (Two completely different answers are acceptable here) - (Two words 7/7 or One word of 8 letters)
[In this type of competition men do not usually stall.]

7. - Name that gladiator actor who can’t seem to get along with blackbirds. - (Two words 7/4) 
[Both his first and last name will be punned here.]

8. - Two very competitive brothers both grew up to become renowned Army snipers. To what do they owe this fact? - (Two words 7/7)
[The fact that they are brothers is important but the pun is in the gun.]

9. - A Revlon product female boxers might apply to cover up a swollen mouth after a match. - (One contrived and possibly hyphenated word 5-8)
[The color that works best is blood red. Think outside of the box sir.]

10. - Folks who still can’t come to terms over whether Certs is a candy or for fresher breath might be said to have this. - (Punned version is another possibly hyphenated word 5-5 letters)
[This one plays on a very old TV commercial where two people supposedly can’t agree on why they use the product]

11. - What a young man of draft age knew he wouldn’t see once he’d been classified 4-F. - (One word 5 letters)
[No intricate knowledge of the military draft is needed here. It’s a simple play on a word that applies to an aggressive military action.]

12. - The ninja’s instructor had to admonish his unruly pupil because he was so insubordinate and was always BLANK him. - (Target word is one 8 letter word.  Punned version is two words 1/6’) 
[For what type of conflict are ninja’s commonly known?]

FATS Riddle #7 off-target

A couple of stained glass makers want to have children. After trying for a few months they go to a doctor who informs the woman she is infertile. However, after many different failed treatments, BLANK was successful and they were able to have a beautiful baby boy.

Just woke up to Lars Hanson getting the BINGO with IN VITRO FERTILIZATION / IN VITREAUX FERTILIZATION / IN VITRAIL FERTILIZATION

If no-one else remembers, Fat's Riddle #7 was actually on-target. Here is Alex's definition of the meaning of the acronym "FATS". He gave us 2 other topics besides those having to be with obesity.

Stan


FATS because the puns will fall like dominoes. FATS can stand for one of two things

Foreign are the entries.
or
Fakakta Are The Entries.

Both phrase describe what is sometimes the case with these riddles. Just in case you don't know, fakakta (the 2nd k is prononced like the "ch" in chanukah, kind of like you are preparing to spit; or if you prefer it is pronounced like the "ch" at the end of Bach is supposed to be pronounced) is a Yiddish word. Fakakta means, by the way, all screwed up -- and that is a polite translation. 

So, what we have here is a multi-aspect theme for the next 100 F-riddles. They could be foreign puns -- bilingual or about other countries or they could be about musicians or games like dominoes or they could be just plain fakakta.

It was my fault that the BINGO was not reported, not Dante's.

His posting is below.

IAn excellent first posting of a riddle by Dante. I'm looking forward to many more.

Stan,

Hey I'm having some technical issues with posting, probably because of sending it via gmail, could you post this for me? I'll try using my yahoo address directly next time and see if that works

Thanks,

FATS Riddle #7 off-target

Just woke up to Lars Hanson getting the BINGO with IN VITRO FERTILIZATION / IN VITREAUX FERTILIZATION / IN VITRAIL FERTILIZATION

Also good guess from Stan with INLAIDING / INLAY-ING
----------------------------------------
A couple of stained glass makers want to have children. After trying for a few months they go to a doctor who informs the woman she is infertile. However, after many different failed treatments, BLANK was successful and they were able to have a beautiful baby boy.

FATS Riddle #7 BINGO

Stan Kegel
 



I woke up late & just got to my computer, so it was my fault that the BINGO was not reported, not Dante's.

His posting is below.

If no-one else remembers, Fat's Riddle #7 was actually on-target by Alex's definition.  I have attached a copy of Alex's definition of the meaning of the acronym "FATS" below the message Dante sent me for posting.

An excellent first posting of a riddle by Dante. I'm looking forward to many more.

FATS because the puns will fall like dominoes. FATS can stand for one of two things

Foreign are the entries.
or
Fakakta Are The Entries.

Both phrase describe what is sometimes the case with these riddles. Just in case you don't know, fakakta (the 2nd k is prononced like the "ch" in chanukah, kind of like you are preparing to spit; or if you prefer it is pronounced like the "ch" at the end of Bach is supposed to be pronounced) is a Yiddish word. Fakakta means, by the way, all screwed up -- and that is a polite translation. 

So, what we have here is a multi-aspect theme for the next 100 F-riddles. They could be foreign puns -- bilingual or about other countries
or they could be about musicians or games like dominoes
or they could be just plain fakakta.

I never knew Fats Waller's middle name, but thanks to the OC recording of AIN'T MISBEHAVING (Bway, decades ago) I can hear in my head, from the show's finale, the announcer introducing, "Mr. Thomas "Fats" Waller!" So that got me his first name, and from there it was breezy-easy.

Gary,

    Well done!  It must be an age thing, as Cyn also was on target right after you.  ;-)

    The set-up was irresistible with the FATS series.  Some puns just write themselves, don't they?  :-D

    Aloha,

    By the way, as Cyn has pointed out to me, I posted an F-Riddle on a Friday.  In retrospect, I should have waited until this coming Tuesday, but failed to do so.  My apologies.

    I suspect Dante still has trouble getting posts through the moderator.

    The answer to FATS #7 was, of course, IN VITRO FERTILIZATION.
