Rogue 1078 (One hour warning)

Expect RR #1078 in your mailbox by 1pm central

It’s another Limerick based cluster, which is by far my favorite to create, but it’s difficult to know what type is the “crowd favorite” since there’s lately been so little “crowding.”

Rogue Riddle 1077 Curtain Going Down Going Through A Stage. And In Kind Of A Broad Way. #RogueRiddle

gregg siegel
 

Congrats to Gary Hallick, who got the most correct answers.

Look for Gary in Rogue Riddle 1078, coming soon to a theatre near you.



So these are all Broadway-type plays, musicals and otherwise.

 

Still under study?

 

These numbers correspond to the words in the name of the actual show.

 

1. What you might say when you greet the painter of Persistence of Memory out walking his aardvark. 5 5

 

2. Ms. Burnett was reportedly quite a successful stock investor, and relied on a network of professionals. When some bad news came out on a large holding, her broker sent her an urgent two word telegram: BLANK! 8

 

3. Wound permanently. 4

 

4. The Kaitlin Olsen sitcom where she is a parental guardian has been cancelled. And so we bid BLANK. 3 6

 

5. Gloria Steinem’s magazine reportedly went through several debt-related issues. Supposedly, the creditor vultures started circling and forced changes in ownership. Yes, they really worked to  BLANK out to dry. 3 2.

 

6. Corcyra and Sparta and Athens, oh my. 6

 

7. I like pizza so BLANK lot of it. And for the record I don’t hold it out flat and nibble little bites out of it like an animal. I fold it like a normal person and go to town. 4

 

8. It’s crazy but nobody beats it. 3 3

 

9. A baseballologist (yes that’s a thing) once did an analysis comparing the type of wood used in bats to their proclivity for singles vs. extra base hits. The conclusion: Cherry for singles, Pine for doubles, Maple for triples and BLANK. 8

 

10. There are some fancy, trendy items in the hold of that freighter. It is definitely hauling some BLANK. 7

 

11. I was a big fan of Dorothy the mid-seventies Olympic figure skating/hair style model champion. Do I like her a lot? Really, I like BLANKs. 8

 

12. Embodying the original madness of march, perhaps, at least according to Lewis Carroll. 4

 

13. What you might call Ms. Winslet assuming that she came from Osceola County. 3 2 4

Coming Soon…


RogueRiddle #1076 (Bingo & Reveal!)

gary hallock
 

Only 3 players were brave enough to enter the risk winning this week. Jim E. and Doug S. both chimed in early with 5 kills each but were not heard from again. Next one up was was Gregg S. who not only came on strong but refined his guesses until he had racked up a near clean sweep.

A big “thank you” goes out to everyone who even read through these riddles and perhaps thought about playing. Gregg will be hosting #1077 this weekend. Hopefully he’ll stir up a little more excitement than did I.

Riddle answers have been “incorporated” into the listing below.

Gary (Leerless Feeder) Hallock

=========

ROGUE RIDDLE #1076 - Launched May 23, 2021 @ 12:30pm central

@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*

Below you will find a series of 10 short sentences, each containing one or more BLANK spaces. Into each BLANK you should be able to insert the name of a flower (or flowers) which will more-or-less satisfy the punned implication of the set-up. (Yes, some answers will be plural, bouquet?)

Because it was a bit of a stretch anyhow, I have sacrificed one riddle as a Sample Question for inspirational purposes. Be the first to send me a private reply with all (or most) of the required floral names, and win yourself the honor of hosting Rogue Riddle #1077 next weekend.

When responding, please do so (privately) in the form of a full worksheet, as I have not bothered to memorize all these names and numbers myself. Collecting and recording your progress in a single email will make it much easier for me to keep and report your score.

0. (Sample Question)
In France a BLANK be a good way to flirt with a woman, but in some other cities that’ll get you a fat BLANK. #### PERIWINKLE / TULIPS

1.
The field behind the milking barn is filled with manure. On a rainy day it sometimes makes the BLANK. #### COWSLIP

2.
In the springtime my shrink says I’m always a real mess. Probably this is because every time I visit, I bring her new-BLANK. #### ROSES

3.
I build and sell greenhouses. I guess you might say I BLANK-state developer. #### AMARYLLIS

4.
My gardener is very moody. Some BLANK has a good attitude and others he’s prone to BLANK. #### DAISY / VIOLETS

5.
When/if Prince Charles ever becomes king of England, I would like to attend the BLANK. #### CARNATION

6.
When an old gardener becomes incontinent, he sometimes will BLANK BLANK. #### PEONIES/ PANSIES

7.

8.

9.
When I lived in Alaska, I knew how to make macrame basket hangers. But that was long ago and my memory is failing. Now I BLANK. #### FORGET-ME-NOTS

10.
In the world of religious art, the term “pieta” refers to a specific type of painting or sculpture. Sometimes it depicts supporting players such as John the Apostle or Mary Magdaline but a true Pieta will always feature both BLANK. #### CHRYSANTHEMUM

Punning passed down from generation to generation.

One Sagan
 

In 1990 or thereabouts I entered the O'Henry Punoff for the 1st time. My 6 year old son accompanied me on stage and was part of the act. Years later he brought his frat brothers with signs and formed my own personal cheering section in another of my competitions, Growing up with me my son also became a punster.
He has children of his own now and yesterday I was with his 7 year old son. We were talking about jalapeños and I asked him if he ever had one that was empty. Naturally, he asked me what I meant and I told him it was a "hollowpeño".
Without missing a beat he asked me if I had ever had a "lulapeño". 
I said, "What's that?"
He replied, laughing his head off, "A Hallelujahpeño."

ROGUE RIDDLE 1075: UPDATE #1

Adam Engel
 

Hi all,

One nibble so far. Gary H is currently in a commanding lead with... one correct answer. Let's see your answers! Remember that all worksheets are due by 9PM PDT TOMORROW (Thursday).

Some hints below:
1. My cousin Johanna GRADUATED from college this week. These are all graduation themed.
2. Each of the blanks has a homophone that is the item being described at the end. For example...
I asked for a _____ and all I got was a solid chunk of facial toning lotion for sleepy people. (ICE CREAM CAKE / EYE CREAM CAKE)
3. First letter of each blank is given below.



I asked for a D_____ and all I got was a below-average handyman.


I asked for a M_____ and all I got was a vertical writing surface covered in the FBI’s most wanted killers.


I asked for a S_____ and all I got was a ceremony in honor of Red Bull’s namesake ingredient.


I asked for a C_____ and all I got was a military leader in a dress.


I asked for a T_____ and all I got was a fight with my brother.


I asked for a T_____ and all I got was a written version of the subway conductor’s announcements.


I asked for a C_____ and all I got was a hard candy with words written on it.


I asked for a V_____ and all I got was… well, actually I did get the person at the top of the class. At least someone did their job right.


Good luck!!
