I have decided to stop hanging out with all these old geezer pals of mine. I don’t want to end up suffering from “crony virus.”

I don't understand the trend to criticize Southern California that seems to have "gone viral". Everyone wants to support SoCal dissing.

========================

A friend was speculating about which stocks are likely to rebound first after the market starts to recover. He thinks oil stocks will surge because people will want to avoid public transportation. I disagree. I think people will want to abandon their vehicles to avoid contracting the dreaded “Car Owner Virus.” - It’s quite contagious because it has an automatic transmission.

They made a movie about the aftereffects of coronavirus; how politicians used it to put in the most outrageous restrictions on our freedoms and to spend billions on things totally unrelated to the crisis; how people started hoarding things that were totally unrelated to sickness care or which were perishable; how they bought up painters masks from hardware stores that offered no protection from virus at all.

Oh, is that why? I wondered. I clicked Reply but verified hyper-cautiously that it was going to Gary only to find that indeed it was going to the list. I deleted the PUNY addressee and substituted Gary’s addy but didn’t know why the glitch had occurred. Thanx for the explanation.

 

Make it a splendiferous day!

Below you will find a list of 12 burning questions on the cross topic theme of DISEASES & LITERATURE. The required answers on each of these will be puns based on well-known fiction titles. In some cases there are multiple authors referenced, so watch out for red herrings. Also, I believe at least one of these target titles is not an actual book title, but a series or collection, but that shouldn’t be too difficult to work around.

In order to qualify for the kill, please submit both your punned title and the original (target) title. Also, please send me a complete cumulative worksheet with each subsequent submission as it will make my task of tallying far easier.

First player to nail all twelve (or most) wins the honor of hosting next week’s game.

Imbibing an excessive amount of Mexican alcohol could be the reason the avian flew.
#### TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD / TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

1.
I kid you not! This cautionary tale seems to celebrate the supremacy of the new strain of Coronavirus, giving the COVID-19 strain the prestigious title, “BLANK.”

2.
This title of this fantasy series seems to Lewis-ly suggest that lions & witches in this imaginary land are sequelly vulnerable to repeated re-infections.

3.
Being in a “high risk” demographic, it’s not surprising that this superannuated fisherman would fall victim to a severe medical ailment.

4.
Another well known fisherman apparently suffered from chronic erectile dysfunction, as he was clearly plagued by a “BLANK.”

5.
If you think COVID-19 is difficult to escape, just wait a few years until the next numbered flu variant arrives. You won’t be able to avoid it. Come Heller high water, we’re all going to “BLANK.”

6.
This itchy skin condition can easily be contracted by spending too long in the steam room. The book about it is called, “BLANK.”

7.
The title of this novel should scare the Dickens out of everyone, as it conjures up the image of congested citizens coughing up gobs of phlegm and spitting it into public sewer drains.

8.
A corporation has been set up to facilitate the clyster colon cleansing business. In the industry a company such as this is euphemistically known as an “BLANK.”

9.
If Portnoy had been complaining about the author’s medical condition, perhaps this Steinbeck title might have been more appropriate for his book.

10.
Set in the not-too-distant future, this sci-fi tale speculates that COVID-19 virus has mutated to become far more deadly and has now even spread to other worlds. The title seems to offer a warning to would-be visitors to the red planet. The “BLANK”

11.
You’ve probably all heard of Finnegan’s Wake, but what ailment was it that that actually did him in? In the title of his famous earlier book, a different author seems to suggest that it may have been chronic coffin that put Finnegan in the ground, as he appeared to predict it with this reMark, “That ‘BLANK’”

12.
Amid all the absurd rumors and jokes, there’s a certain brand of beer that has suffered greatly lately. One overstocked bartender started suggesting to patrons that they might enjoy a cold one at a deep discount. Russian to judgement, one confused customer turned him down thus, “...any BLANK?’ Nah.”

moderated Rogue Riddle 1014 Called for Hallock

portagecreek
 

Well, it is late on Tuesday and I think it is safe to call RR 1014 for Gary Hallock who won 5 of the 6 contested riddles. Cyn stayed in 2nd place. Thanks to everyone who played.

ANSWERS are below in CAPS:

Rogue Riddle 1014

Instead of doing this riddle by the book I'll attempt a more novel approach. The riddle covers a many topics for everyone, but with a binding theme. There are several mini shaggy stories.

As usual. First with all, or with the most at midnight Tuesday EDT gets to be next in the barrel.

Please send your guesses to gypsywagon@mindspring.com

1. For Cyn. This winter has produced extreme temperature swings. Farmers who milk cows for a living have a particular problem staying warm or cool. One particular milk farm has been supplying their help with those ( used to be trendy) soft leather Australian boots, but fibbing about how much they make your feet perspire when the weather changes. Milkers have been calling this place "The ----- of --- lie -------"I LOOKED ON CYN'S FB PROFLIE AND SHE HAD LIKED A BOOK CALLED "THE DIARY OF AN UGLY SWEATER". THE WINNING PUN "THE DAIRY OF AN UGG LIE SWEATER".
2. For Stan. A little bit of Tolkien and Dylan set to music in this one. Some of the taking Tolkien trees have morphed into palms, and Bob Dylan was fond of using their branches as fans. So, he really did not sing what people thought he sung when folks jumped on the words of "Blowing in the Wind". He really meant "THE ---- are my ------". STAN AND RICHARD LERDERER TEAMED UP FOR 'THE ANTS ARE MY FRIENDS" AND THE PUN WAS "THE ENTS ARE MY FRONDS".

3. For Cyn and Stan. Children's story my eye! This little story is really about a Presidents wife providing him with a Monica as a Christmas gift. He called it. Three words describes it. 'Blank's Blank Blank"
NOPE. I AM NOT GIVING THE ANSWER. I WILL PRIVATELY TO DOUG AND GARY WHO BOTH MADE ATTEMPTS.

4. For Gary. WSP also barely hid his adult thoughts about trees. It was really about him loosing his intense sexual desire (when it's gone - it's gone) while helping someone have the will to live thru an epidemic similar to what China is dealing with now. Three words.

WILLIAM SYDNEY PORTER WROTE "THE LAST LEAF". GARY'S CORRECT PUN WAS "THE LUST LEAVES'

5.For Jim. A bunch of smart guys from MIT get with a pack of wolves not cards and work a way to take the pups from their mothers without them wailing and crying enough to wake the whole pack. A story about this would be
"Bringing Down the Blank". "BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE"/BRINGING DOWN THE HOWLS

6. For Lars. A clue for a novel he previously finished in the 10th month of the year. "Blank for Blank Blank" "HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER"/HINT FOR READ OCTOBER.

GARY GETS THE WIN AND NEXT WEEK IT IS HIS TURN.


moderated Rogue Riddle Status.

portagecreek
 

The status has been static. Five total guessers and fun activity on Saturday and Sunday--nothing today. Gary has solved the most followed by Cyn. No one has solved them all, however. #3 is still open if you are someone that really like a challenge. Actually only two folks have even made attempts on 3# and one of them was clever, but not quite what I was after.


########################
First off - the closing date is Tuesday at midnight EDT, but I don't think it will last that long. Someone is only one correct answer from getting all 6. Unfortunately, no one has figured that one out.

Everyone figured out quite quickly that I was attempting to associate a book title with some of our members. Only one of the people I targeted got their intended book.

There were two aimed at Stan, one of them is the mini shaggy that has not been solved. (Big Clue, goggle Stan Kegel books.) Since I have sent personal clues to everyone participating, and most of them have gone on to bingo what they were working on, I will only clue on the lone unsolved #3. Personal clues will be sent on every guess anyone makes.,

#3 as below

3. For Stan. Children's story my eye! This little story is really about a Presidents wife providing him with a Monica as a Christmas gift. He called it. Three words describes it. 'Blank's Blank Blank"

I FIRST DEDICATED THIS BOOK TO CYN AND STAN SINCE CYN HAD THE VALENTINE ROGUE TO POLITICAL FIGURES. STAN AND RICHARD, HOWEVER, HAD THE BOOK. I ALSO SLIPPED BACK HERE ON MY GOAL NEVER TO GET POLITICAL IN PUNY. THE SET UP IS OVER THE TIME OF CHRISTMAS TO NEW YEARS AND INVOLVES A PRESIDENT, AND HIS WIFE PERFORMING A SEXUAL ACT I CALLED A "MONICA". MY STRONG CLUE TONIGHT IS THE BOOK TITLE CONTAINS THREE WORDS. YOU ONLY HAVE TO PUN ON THE FIRST AND LAST.

6. For Lars. A clue for a novel he previously finished in the 10th month of the year. "Blank for Blank Blank"

midnight EST? That would be 1 AM EDT

 

Not that it makes any difference to me personally—I never get up before 2 AM and often not till 3 AM—like this morning. Stan is sometimes up at that hour, though, although he doesn’t seem to be playing with us these days. And night owls might still be up from the night before.

 

Make it a splendiferous day!

Cyn,

 

Tuesday night midnight EST.  The same glitch that stopped me from saving the draft also kept me from revising it after reading it. That seems to be resolved.

 First with all, or with the most at midnight EST 

 

First of all, midnight EST of WHAT DAY?

 

And, second, unless you mean TODAY, it won’t be EST. After 1 AM tonight (Sunday morning) it will magically become 3 AM and we will be on EDT, NOT EST anymore till November.

 

Don’t forget to “spring ahead,” folks!

Make it a splendiferous day!

1. For Cyn. This winter has produced extreme temperature swings. Farmers who milk cows for a living have a particular problem staying warm or cool. One particular milk farm has been supplying their help with those ( used to be trendy) soft leather Australian boots, but fibbing about how much they make your feet perspire when the weather changes. Milkers have been calling this place "The ----- of --- lie  -------"

I know, it is too early, but I just typed this up and my system will not let me save it as a draft. So use it or loose it. I'm releasing now.

Rogue Riddle 1014

Instead of doing this riddle by the book I'll attempt a more novel approach. The riddle covers a many topics for everyone, but with a binding theme. There are several mini shaggy stories.

As usual. First with all, or with the most at midnight EST gets to be next in the barrel.

Please send your guesses to gypsywagon@mindspring.com

Milkers have been calling this place "The ----- of --- lie -------"

2. For Stan. A little bit of Tolkien and Dylan set to music in this one. Some of the taking Tolkien trees have morphed into palms, and Bob Dylan was fond of using their branches as fans. So, he really did not sing what people thought he sung when folks jumped on the words of "Blowing in the Wind". He really meant "THE ---- are my ------".

3. For Cyn and Stan. Children's story my eye! This little story is really about a Presidents wife providing him with a Monica as a Christmas gift. He called it. Three words describes it. 'Blank's Blank Blank"

4. For Gary. WSP also barely hid his adult thoughts about trees. It was really about him loosing his intense sexual desire (when it's gone - it's gone) while helping someone have the will to live thru an epidemic similar to what China is dealing with now. Three words.

5.For Jim. A bunch of smart guys from MIT get with a pack of wolves not cards and work a way to take the pups from their mothers without them wailing and crying enough to wake the whole pack. A story about this would be
"Bringing Down the Blank".

6. For Lars. A clue for a novel he previously finished in the 10th month of the year. "Blank for Blank Blank"

All,

I just created RR 1014 and my system is acting up. I can't save the rogue as a draft to be released over the weekend. So, there will be a head start. I will let it out soon rather than loose it.

moderated Rogue Riddle 1013 -- Flights of Fancy -- Winner Declared and Answers Revealed.

Lars Hanson
 

All,

 

    There were only two players this week, with Cyn weighing in first and Gary Reeve weighing in second.  Then all went silent and nothing was heard since Saturday.

 

    Gary is this week’s winner, and will host Rogue Riddle #1014 next week.

 

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

 

Rogue Riddle 1013

 

More Flights of Fancy

 

    Back to earth this week with an apolitical riddle to transport you.  While the beer bug, um, Corona virus, seems to be what’s ale-ing folks these days and reducing travel, time to travel while bottled up in safety and comfort at home, without having to wait in lime. 

 

    As usual this week’s Rogue consists of twenty riddles, all on the same airy theme.  

 

Q:  Robert E’s king?

A:  LEE’S MAJESTY (lese majesty or majesté)

 

    Where both punned and unpunned answers are involved, full credit requires both answers.  One riddle refers to a fictitious company.

 

    As always, remember that the wording of each riddle generally has been carefully chosen both to provide clues and to avoid the use of any words in the answer.

 

    As usual, the riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday.  The first person to solve all the riddles will be declared the winner.  If no one has solved all the riddles by 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner and will host Rogue Riddle 10148 next week.

 

    Now, sit down, buckle up, make sure your seat backs are up and tray tables are in the up and locked position, and let’s take off!
