Rogue Riddle #1025 (Bingo and Reveal!)

gary hallock
 

Hello Punsters,

It is with great pleasure I announce the CORONAtion of Gary Reeves (the Other Gary) as the the rightful HYDROXICHOLORIQWINner of last week’s COVID-themed Rogue Riddle! (Answers below.)

It was great connecting with all of you my first time hosting Rogue Riddle/ I enjoyed the one-on-one banter and hints-sharing with each of the players – I really miss you guys!

A huge thanks to all those who played – Lars Hanson, Aaron Fasel, Gary Hallock, Jim Ertner, Ericka Gayle Ettin, and Gary Reeves. A special mention goes to Bill Crider, who knocked out most of them early on, with no hints. Nice job, Bill!

Our official winner, Gary R., has graciously confirmed that he will be posting this week's RR, so I will let him be responsible for the next wave of our pundemic. 

Hugs, (Bugs?)

Diana

PS – Thanks also to my buddy Gary Hallock for ghost-posting my riddle. My inexplicable need for him to ghost-host is actually very explicable: I don’t do much email or join lists, and made an exception this time since, well, y’all are fun! Moving forward, though, if you’d like to connect, I’m much more easily found on Facebook as Diana M. Gruber, or via phone (832-868-9473.) Okay, I think that’s it! ~~~ Ly, ly, ly, Lysol, folks! 

 

A COVID CONVERSATION

1) - A global organization is making new Coronavirus recommendations. Wanna know which? Owl tell you:
- WHO, WHO?

2) - A different government entity recommends sunflower pips as a cure, but I'm skeptical...
- Yeah, I told you they're a bit CDC (SEEDY, SEE)?!

3) - And if you don't wear a face covering, the police will invade your house during a costume party.
- Wow, I'm not sure which is worse: MASK OR RAID (MASQUERADE)....?

4) - Research shows each time you don't wash your hands properly, a score of people will fall ill!
- Yeah, I heard about the 20-SICKENED (SECOND) rule...

5) - They found out this virus is old - it dates back to the earliest Star Wars movies.
- You mean when Leia tried to seduce Solo? Yeah, I heard about this WOO-HAN (WUHAN) stuff.

6) - Last but not least, they're asking people to be aware of dangers beyond COVID. I mean, a sharp-ended tree trunk could fall on your head!
- Oh, that must be why they're trying so hard to FLATTEN the KERF (CURVE)!

Mileage Charge

If asked how it feels that the nation's rental car giant filed for bankruptcy, stock owners will say, "It Hertz lots"
After laying off many employees,the company is now stuck with a bunch of loaners.
I think they need a new Enterprise and need to Budget their money better, to be more Thrifty.
Regardless, investors should pay Hertz Avis-it as many have suggested that Elon should and musk get involved.

ROGUE RIDDLE number 1025 #RogueRiddle

ROGUE RIDDLE #1025 - A COVID CONVERSATION
GHOST LAUNCHED on Sunday, May 24, 2020 @ 10:25am (central)

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#
Submit all guesses directly to Diana M. Gruber <Dianamiscell@...>
#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

Note: This riddle is being ghost posted on behalf of Diana Gruber, a long-time PUNY person who, for reason beyond explanation, is unable to post it her own self. She is still willing and able to field your guesses and respond via email, so let’s get past that and right down to her game. Just please try to remember to leave me out of it. - Gary

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#
Submit all guesses directly to Diana M. Gruber <Dianamiscell@...>
#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

Hi Punsters!

I hope you are safe and well, in light of the virus (virus? It barely know us!) that is floating around out there.

I hope you're handling things well, wherever you are. (I'm in San Diego - SoCal distancing is not a problem here.)

Anyway, here is my riddle. It's not particulate-ly hard... but I hope you'll find it fun. Who knows - maybe it will go viral! - Diana M. Gruber

A COVID CONVERSATION

1) - A global organization is making new Coronavirus recommendations. Wanna know which? Owl tell you:
- BLANK, BLANK?

2) - A different government entity recommends sunflower pips as a cure, but I'm skeptical...
- Yeah, I told you they're a bit BLANK?!

3) - And if you don't wear a face covering, the police will invade your house during a costume party.
- Wow, I'm not sure which is worse: BLANK....?

4) - Research shows each time you don't wash your hands properly, a score of people will fall ill!
- Yeah, I heard about the 20-BLANK rule...

5) - They found out this virus is old - it dates back to the earliest Star Wars movies.
- You mean when Leia tried to seduce Solo? Yeah, I heard about this BLANK stuff.

6) - Last but not least, they're asking people to be aware of dangers beyond COVID. I mean, a sharp-ended tree trunk could fall on your head!
- Oh, that must be why they're trying so hard to BLANK the BLANK!

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

RR #1025 (30 minute warning)

gary hallock
 

With a little bit of creative wrangling, I have been able to coax and coach Diana Gruber through the process of constructing and hosting this week’s Rogue. Unfortunately, her actual subscription to PUNY seems to be somewhat uncertain, so I will be her surrogate poster.

Your guesses should still be sent directly to her and responses will come to you from her email.

Expect to see #1025 in your mailbox at about 10am central.

Thank you in advance for playing,

Gary Hallock

Bingo and Reveal --Bilingual (Sort of) #RogueRiddle #1024 #RogueRiddle

Bingo and Reveal- Bilingual (Sort of) #RogueRiddle #1024

 

Diana Gruber (one of the smartest people I know) perfectly solved this Rogue on the first pass, as did Lars. However, Lars (having hosted frequently of late) declined to host. Diana has graciously agreed to host Rogue #1025. I apologize for the late announcement. Here are the solutions:

Spanish

1.       The Mexican magician waved his wand, said ‘Uno, Dos,” and disappeared without a TRES (TRACE).

2.       Outside my window I had a vine-like bush with fragrant clusters of purple flowers. But it died. When I cut it down, I said “Hasta la WISTERIA (VISTA), Baby.”

3.        “Are you going to the country to see your mom?” “No, I am going to the city to CIUDAD (SEE YOUR DAD)”

4.       Did she kick her sister with her foot? No, she hit her brother with HERMANO (HER HAND).

 

French

1.       The waiter in Paris asked “Would you like two eggs in your omelette?”  I replied “One egg is UN EOUF (ENOUGH).”

2.       There were three cats on the Titanic. Do you know what happened to them?  UN DEUX TROIS QUATRE CINQ (QUATRE CINQ sounds like  CAT SANK)

3.       I got a new lawn mower, so now I can COUP DE GRAS (sounds sort of like CUT THE GRASS but doesn’t translate that way).


Re: [footdoc_best_jokes] About the Pundemic....Groaners!!

gary hallock
 

In light of this bungled re-posting of forwarded content, I would like to take a moment to remind everyone that material sent to the PUNY list is presumed to be original pun-relevant content, authored by the person who actually sends it. Naturally, true originality is difficult to verify or properly recognize, so we have always been more-or-less on the honor system. 

If, however, you find yourself intrigued, bemused or tickled by something someone else has sent you, this definitely DOES NOT qualify as appropriate material to post here. 

On the other hand, if you are fairly certain that a quip, joke, riddle you have enjoyed has originated with the person who sent it to you, I would urge you to recruit this person to become an actual subscriber to PUNY themselves. This way their creativity and craftsmanship can be properly appreciated and ultimately credited to their name. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Gary (Leerless Feeder) Hallock

P.S. - For the record, this message originated on the old YahooGroups version of the PUNY list which went to seed some months ago. To ensure full coverage of this message, I have double posted to both addresses. All important and relevant PUNY messages and materials should be posted to our new address. Puny@groups.io
