I sent this out at 5:05 AM PDT and received a Bcc. copy at 5:06. I then went back to bed and woke up a few minutes ago receiving messages that no one had received it yet, Went to the website and saw it was posted the site "about 15 minutes ago" I have just received my copy from PUNY and hope you did too. If not, here it is again.

The problem is from PUNY server, not from me

Re: Simple minds (was: fats #17)

In what way are you gone, Arlen? You’re obviously a well-rounded fellow and it was our pleasure to have you “round” Austin for the Pun-Off. Stick around long enough and you’ll surely find your schtick is good for a round or two of riddles.

“Simplicity” is supposed to be the watch-word for F-Riddles. The idea is to pass them back & forth vigorously for 3 days a weak. Swift, stupid and simple is the easiest way to ensure that, but not everyone has the same vision of this. Perhaps you should reach out and pluck some of our low-hanging fruit someday soon and then show us how it’s done.

Well, there seems to be no shortage today of players willing to take on the F-riddles. Cyn jumped in early with her usual correct answer, followed shortly by Nivi Engineer with another direct hit. As I was awaiting her confirmation of claim, I also received correct guesses from Dante, Joseph, Stan and Lars. 

The answer I sought was ...

ROGUE RIDDLE #815 (Mom's the Word) (Update & clues)

gary hallock
 

Only a couple of players have taken me up on this relatively simple challenge. This leads me to believe that some may be shy of even approaching a riddle for fear they might accidentally lay claim to wit. 

On the other hand, it’s possible that I didn’t make it clear that in each case there is a “maternal” synonym that is hidden within the otherwise fairly obvious answer. This means that your guess could be essentially correct but still not contain that target word.  (Hint: Some of these synonyms are second generation.) 

I have included cryptic hints [in brackets] with each of the riddles below.

Deadline is midnight CDT tonight

Because so many of us were so preoccupied with the Pun-Off yesterday, you probably thought I wouldn’t have the strength or nerve to post a Rogue Riddle this week, but you’re wrong! 

Yes, my Mom did attend the contest yesterday but In celebration of her day today, I’ve composed a brief collection of clues that should lead you to words that contain concealed maternal reverences. (Warning: Some target words may have been used more than once) 

First person to supply me with all or most of the answers I seek, will win the honor of hosting next weekend. Would it kill you to claim a riddle now and then? You’re breaking my heart!

2. - I hope you did more than just send her a card or flowers. You really should give BLANK call today.

3. - If your dad’s Paw had a cheap camera, most photographs of his wife will be very BLANK.
[Because of their poor resolution, this couple spent the last years of their life in the old focus home.]

4. - If you need someone to come over an' nurse ya, she will quickly overcome inertia.
[Female political candidates with kids could be said to also benefit from this quality.]

5. - If a theoretical physicist was raised by his Father’s sister she might be considered his BLANK.

10. - At the very least, what might a Munchkin regard his mother?
[Doesn’t have to be a Munchkin, maybe just a midget.]

11. - When the old lady saw the immense size of the shopping plaza, she went into convulsions. Pop-Pop said it was apparently a case of BLANK BLANK BLANK.
[Some grasp of medical terms would be helpful here.]

12. - The German Shepherd was not pure bred. Seems one of his parents was a BLANK.

RR #815 (Sudden 15 minute warning)

gary hallock
 

I’m desperately attempting to keep with the scheduled program here so I’ll still be launching RR #815 within the technical “weekend.” Naturally I don’t expect everyone to be jumping all over a Rogue Riddle at this late hour, but since so few people are serious players these days, I figure nobody can much complain if it sits in the in-box overnight.

It’ll be a set of 12 fairly easy and timely riddles. Please consider giving this game some play and consider claiming and hosting one of your own next week.

Rogue Riddle #814 - Winner Declared

Lars Hanson
 

All,

 

    Well, this week’s Rogue Riddle generated less participation than I had hope.  In all there were only three players:  Gary, Bill, and Jim. 

 

    Initial indications were that this riddle would fall more quickly than it did.  Gary was first in on this week’s Rogue and held a steady lead.  Bill Crider came in with a set of guesses tying Gary’s, but Gary then surged back into the lead.  Jim came in late with a set of guesses as well, but the honors of hosting Rogue Riddle #815 goes to our Learless Feeder, Gary Hallock.

  

 The final standings are as follows:

 

Gary Hallock   –   12 correct plus partials on 2 others (65.00%)
(1, 2, 5-10, 16-19, and partials on 4 and 15)

 

Bill Crider  –          9 correct plus 2 partials (50%)
(1-3, 5, 6, 9, 11, 12, 18, and 19)

 

Jim Ertner –          3 correct (15%)
(1, 9, and 16)

 

    Only three (3) of the riddles remain unanswered, and none of them have been tried.  The riddle scores are as follows:

 

•   3 correct answers     --   2    --     #1, #9

•   2 correct answers     --   5   --     #2, #5, #6, #16, #18

•   1 correct answer       --   8   --     #3, #7, #8, #10, #11, 12, #17, #19

•   0 correct answers     --   5   --     #4, #13, #14, #15, #20

Since we’re out of the Tuesday-Thursday window for F riddles, stay tuned for FATS Riddle #16 on Tuesday morning … unless I’m informed by the “powers that be” that we’ll be on “riddle hiatus” the week before the Pun-Off as we’ve done before.
