Even more rogue riddle history - piLARS of the myrth

portagecreek
 

Lars/parkersan) - lets look his story history - it sure is modern history on the rogues. Lars has hosted the rogue riddle 66 times ( or more from RR# 648 thru 992). That is about 20% of the entire modern volume.

I actually found that Lars also hosted as early as #47. ( back at that time I associated Lars with - ta TUM - ta ta Tum... since he was also one of the pilLARS of Limericks-n-Haiki subgroup.)

How can a single letter make a big difference?

Consider the impact of going from being a fermi nation to a termi nation.

More Rogue Riddle History - Alex You A Question

portagecreek
 

Alex is another player that is difficult to track down. He uses handles like Feta Way ("old punners never die, they just Feta Way", and currently I saw a signature of - Here I am One Sagan. I'll just call him One Sagan One and wonder what is sagging Sagan?

It sure is not his Rogue Riddle production. Alex has produced at least 64 Rogues since he joined the club with #328. That is about 10 % of more than half of the rogues that got us here.

When Alex hits the fade away he is in the zone and once wrote 7 rogue riddles from and including #384 through #399!

So Alex I'll alex ya. You going to guess on #999? How many have you won -Say again won?

Riddle status on Monday Evening #RogueRiddle

portagecreek
 

The major action today was that Aaron got a clean set of bingos on one of the puns and is also now the only person that has the title of the gospel song. Now the question - is he as weird at punning as I and can fill in the other side of the / ?. He has the first word.

So far Gary is in front with two kills and Aaron right behind with one kill and a partial. Cyn and Lars have each made one bingo. Actually everyone so far has recognized the one I put in to lure Joseph. No Uncle Joe, though.

No more group clues and hints on the rogue, but I will provide both on guesses.

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

What has gone before on this rogue:

There are just four riddles to solve here regardless of all the red herrings and shaggy story line about them in the set up. Three were meant to be fairly easy and one more difficult. Two of the more obvious ones have already been solved by one or more players - so let us simplify the difficult one.

If you reread the entire setup below you can boil it down to this question:

Is William, the male gendered bovine, going to be beaten by a cowboy named Norman Bie or not? This is an attempted pun on a very well know song I would classify as Gospel, but has been performed and recorded by many different artists and groups over nearly a century.

Now the big hint. This song is related to one of the easy puns in the What a Crock story.

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

everything else you need to know is below

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

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.

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.

Yes, I do think you may do?? aught in aught way you like; though any choice may come to ought, which is about equivalent to nought. On the other hand, it is not fraught with difficulty. So you should do it, indeed you ought to do it. I'm glad you brought it up, and that i caught it before I go to bed.

On the other hand, are you just pulling the otter one?

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

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:

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.

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!
