moderated Sunday Morning Rogue Riddle Corrections #RogueRiddle

Thanks Lee. Most of the other misspellings are also intentional, but now you can use the reply button.

################################################

Cyn chicks in with the first correct, but not complete answer; so I won't hint away her advantage. Going for the first set of puns, when I was growing up on the farm we needed two tools when we were about to dispatch chickens - an axe and a wood block. I imagine that quite a few turkeys will meat their fate the same way in the necks few weeks.

Now consider how they cooked up the thc ( in a crock pot or a pot crock ). Wonder where you buy one of those?

Remember now you can just hit reply to the Rogue Riddle and the hashtag will send it to me or send to gypsywagon@...

######################################################################
RR #998

This will be a more traditional rogue. There are several attempts at pun setups within the two stories indicated by BLANKS.. For each please provide the pun and unpuned versions.

The first to get all or the player with the most by Tuesday 12:00 PM gets to host the gateway to #1000.

Please respond to gypsywagon@... or assuming I did this correctly Lee's hashtag will just work and you actually can hit reply

What a Crock!

In a classic case of mistaken history a famous English landmark has become both misunderstood and misnamed. It turns our that neolithic farmers gathered at this location to sell their home grown produce and wares consisting mainly of chickens and cannabis. They evolved a ritual where chickens foraged on the weed and since it concentrated in the brains they then cut of their heads and slowly cooked them in earthenware containers aptly named crock pots. This crack pot theory was substantiated by finding that people traveled to this location both to witness the execution and then purchase and consume the high producing mixture in a circular market that became the first BLANK BLANK/ BLANK BLANK.

Later in time the circular market became named for the method of preparing the chickens for the beheading which was first to BLANK BLANK/BLANK BLANK.


(next story even though the last was the necks story)

This Ain't My Forced Rodeo

Did you know that Cary Grant made a fortune in the cattle business, first in feed and then in rodeo stock. Not wanting his name to be associated with Westerns he named the feed company Jude. They sold premium bales as Hey Jude which was later renamed Jude Hay, Jude Hay, Jude Hay. Cary bought and raised rodeo stock like many of his fellow actors did race horses. Eventually he came to own a hybrid Brahma named William and known to throw every attempted rider season after season. Cary was known for carefully picking events so William would draw inferior riders, but eventually the rodeo association demanded that he make William available for a championship featuring the reigning bucking champion one Norman Bie. This was indeed Cary's forced rodeo. In the highly anticipated event the crowd began to buzz as Norman and William approached the chute. The murmuring anticipating the contest sounded much like the title to an old gospel song which was LOTS OF BLANKS/LOTS OF BLANKS.

Unfortunately Mr Grant was so concerned that William would be defeated that he withdrew him just before he was mounted. Since Norman could not compete the association provided compensation equivalent to the winners purse which became known as the BLANK BLANK/BLANK BLANK BLANK.

That's it. Fill in the blanks and win a prize.

That only works if you put the hashtag in your newly created (misspelled) topic line, unfortunately. Do 'em the old way if you respond to his message, folks.

All this chatter of tic tac toe
Reminds me of an old game show
It used to be called Hollywood Squares
In case any of you youngsters cares

The stage was a huge shaped tic tc toe
Inside each square sat a star we'd know
The host was a man, Peter Marshall
Who'd ask the stars questions impartial

The two contestants were then free
To answer "Agree" or "Disagree"
Depending if right or wrong, they got
Determined if "X" or "O" got the spot.

Then the player who made tic tac toe
Was the one who would collect  the dough
But the main key of earning the win
Was that middle square who sat Paul Lynde

'Tis all for naught, as Old Bill might say
And marks I'll offer nought.

I'll noughts and crosses play.

With zero and X I'll fill a line,
Feel taut as play progresses.
A win you see is far from mine
A thing I oft confesses.

Such skill as mine is rarely sought
For pencil and paper I use.
And these old things, they may confuse.
For "nothing" I will use naught.

And now you make a polite cough
As you weary of my rhyme.
And here I'll save a little time -
With rough use of enough...

Joseph [:-) Note: cough (coff) does not rhyme with enough (enuff), though rough (ruff) does. -ah! those old -ough- -augh- words.]





I've naught used the hashtag ??since I quit playing tic tac toe and using them tends to make me cross. ( Joseph, how did I do?)

I've made a tiny change to the system to prevent possible confusion when it comes to hashtags (I know, I know, enough with the hashtags already - you're right, I'm almost done). I've flipped the switch that will keep you from accidentally using anything but a pre-defined hashtag in your message topic line. In other words, you can't accidentally post the following:

Rogue Riddle #998 #RogueRiddle

What will happen is that the message will get bounced back to you. If that happens, remove the erroneous # sign from in front of the 998 and resend your message.

Thanks for putting up with all of this. I promise it will all be easier as time goes by. Here's looking at you, kid!

The use of a hashtag’s unsound
There’s a quick way around it I’ve found
Type an alternate sign
As I do in mine
What is it? I’ll gladly e# pound

Glad you asked! Bill Crider got the most points, but he’s already communicated that he will be unable to host the next one, so that honor goes to The Other Gary.

Here are the scores:


Correct 1 Point
Bonus 2 Points
Total
Bill Crider
10
5
20
The Other Gary (Reeves)
9
3
15
Lars
10
2
14
Kirk Miller
4

6

Bill explicitly made up a new pun for each one he got correct. Clever technique! I even gave him a score for half of them.

Here are the ones I liked:

  • Bill
    • Elmo gets revenge when a little furry blue forest dweller makes fun of him: Tickle a Mocking Smurf (I’m a sucker for Smurfs).
    • A thug eats too many beans and terrorizes his cell mates – Goon with the Wind (I hate fart jokes. Two points!)
    • Can a hand puppet break down walls? – Jericho: the Lizard of Oz (Bill says that this one will make no sense if you did not watch the HBO series OZ.  I did not so I’ll take his word for it).
    • After an unsuccessful career in a Broadway musical, a young man returns to college and finds fulfillment in the campus Greek culture: From Hair to Fraternity (a genuine LOL from me)
    • First there was High School Musical, then Glee. Now see the first movie about the Vienna Boy’s Choir, and their non-stop concert schedule: Treble without a Pause (Now you’re singing my tune!)
  • Gary
    • A classic adventure featuring teachers evaluating a dog with laryngitis - Trainers of the Lost Bark or The Empire Strikes Bark if set in Chicago. (I was going for “graders” rather than trainers, but of course trainers makes more sense.)
    • Having broken the window glass, Orson Welles perches in the frame to look over his empire - Sit in Zen Pane (I didn’t even think of zen, but it fits perfectly)
  • Kirk
    • After running across the country, the main character finds himself butt-naked in the woods - Forest Stump (This isn’t what I was going for but it works on a lot of levels)
  • Lars
    • In this moving biography, this movie depicts the journey of the famous Ms. Franklin as he realizes that he is transgendered - The Urethra Franklin Story
    • In this moving biography, this movie depicts the journey of the famous Mr. Franklin as she realizes that he is transgendered - Saving Privates Benjamin

Honestly, I’m not sure if this didn’t make it to my inbox because I’m the sender or if it’s because of my automated system. Either way, if you didn’t get this last night, I’m forwarding it now. See below.

By popular demand, your Leerless Feeder, Gary Hallock, has been promoted to the status of Moderator of this group! He'll be able to do things like approve pending messages and pending members, invite new members, and create new hashtags. In reality, his gig will be the same gig that he and I had set up back on Yahoo groups. He'll simply be able to do a few more things, should I land in the hospital for an extended stay like I did about a month shy of ten years ago now.

If anyone is worried on that last count, I'm working on a backup plan for someone to have a duplicate copy of the keys to the citadel. I'll report on that as soon as something happens.

For now, though, let's celebrate Gary's promotion! Congratulations, Gary!

Since this new IO thing has a learning curve, I want to be sure that your answers have been counted.

So far I have scored submissions from The-Other-Gary, Lars, Kirk, & Bill. If you have sent something and I missed it somehow (i.e., you are not one of those people), let me know. And of course you can send your first (or updated) submissions before the deadline. If you like, you can just send me a personal email to aaronpf@... without a fancy subject line. I’ll keep my eyes peeled.

Contest ends tonight. I’ll be on a plane at the time, but with a little luck, my automated system will send the answers shortly after midnight. So if you can send me your guesses before then, even if I don’t see it, I’ll report the scores and winners tomorrow.

Cheers!
Aaron

Although I’m new to this list, I’d wager this is a common puzzle format with this group. Below I have described the basic plot of a dozen famous movies and all you need to do is provide the name. In each case I PROMISE that you have either seen it or at least heard of it. It is unlikely that you will need to research the clues.

Scoring is simple: One point for each answer that matches mine, and two points for answers that are not the same, but make me laugh or are objectively better.

Actually, you have NEVER seen these movies, because the titles have been changed in a pun-tactic manner. For example:

  • In this film, Clarice Starling insists that the egomaniacal pigs get off the stage and shut up
    • Silence of the Hams 


Easy enough? Let’s begin. (We’ll start off with an easy one.)

Let’s get these in by tonight, please. You have 12 hours from now (i.e., midnight CST).

Don’t change the subject line or it is likely I will miss it.

This time, I’ve clued you into the number of words in the answer, PLUS the movie in question

New answers will only be scored a half point, but a full point will be received for answers better than mine

And if the rabbit was raised in a bed-and-breakfast, would it be an inn-grown hare?

 

Or, as the rabbit said to the baby goat, “”Hare’s looking at you, kid.”

==================
If a rabbit is raised indoors, would it be an ingrown hare?

So what if I don't know the meaning of the word 'apocalypse'?  It's not the end of the world.

My wife tried to unlatch our daughter's car seat with one hand and said, "How do one-armed mothers do it?" Without missing a beat I replied, "Single handedly."
