Rogue Riddle 1093 -- Another Potpourri -- #RogueRiddle

Lars Hanson
 

All,


    Herewith this week's no-notice Rogue Riddle.


    Enjoy!


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


Rogue Riddle #1093

Another Potpourri


     This week’s Rogue Riddle consists of twenty riddles, each of which has two answers, although some might simply be slight rearrangements rather than full replacements.  There is no particular theme this week, nor is there any particular form, as the title suggests.


    Sample riddle:


Q:  An involved punster?

A:  HANSON / HANDS ON

 

    The riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.  As usual, 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 Wednesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner and will host Rogue Riddle #1094 next week.

 

    As with previous riddle sets, the word BLANK can replace more than one word.  In other words, seeing the word BLANK does not indicate how many words should replace the word BLANK.  Further, the article preceding the word “blank” will always be “a,” never “an,” regardless of he punned word.

   
    The Rogue will run until 5:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.  As usual, 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. EDT on Wednesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner and will host Rogue Riddle #1094 next week.
 
    There is a theme, which should become obvious as one begins to solve the riddles.
 
    Now, on to the riddles.
 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

1.  ‘Twas a subject of many a mention,

     The company debate on a pension.

8.  Prosecuting the theft of the old Bible provided something every lawyer needs – a BLANK.

20.  What is the difference between a small pile and an establishment for producing flour?  One is just a BLANK, whereas the other is the BLANK.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

 

    These riddles are fairly easy and should fall rather quickly, so get in early!  

 

    And it would be great to see more new faces this week, whether or not you want to host next week’s Rogue Riddle!  Please remember to tell me on your first guesses whether or not you are willing to host.

 

    The purpose here is to have fun, so go ahead and play!

James Ertner
 

Thank you to the quartet of players this week. I have embedded the answers below.

Stay tuned for Lars’ always-entertaining Rogue.

Jim
====================

1.

All the guests at the animal fair

Had to dress up before they went there.

My friend Billy Brian

Dressed up like a lion,

But I went in the nude, as a BEAR (BARE).

 

2.

The ant basketball team made a vow

To get better but didn’t know how.

It just wasn’t right

To be lacking in height.

They needed TOLERANCE (TALLER ANTS)—and now.

 

3.

There was a kind curate of Kew

Who kept a large cat in a pew.

There he taught it each week

A new letter of Greek,

But it never got further than MU (MEOW).

 

4.

The sheep farmer was proud of his wool,

But the cattle farmer’s barn was full

Of his prized cows

(Not so much his sows).

For he preferred to ADORABLE (ADORE A BULL).

 

5.

The bird office went STORK RAVEN (STARK RAVING) mad,

While the wise-QUACKING (CRACKING) duck became sad.

Some profits they could not TERN (TURN);

How to TWEET they kept trying to learn.

And the hen’s practical YOLKS (JOKES) were really bad.

 

And now some animal crossings:

I went to see my doctor who is part of a group practice. When I got to the reception desk I said I had an appointment. The receptionist asked, "Which doctor?"
I replied, "I'm not going to see a witch doctor."

Lars has now surged ahead and I hereby declare him the winner, and he will host Rogue Riddle #1093.

However, I won’t provide the answers until Friday, in case others want to play just for the fun of it.

Jim
=========================
Leerless Feeder Gary said to prepare yourselves for more “animal crossings.” He also suggested I could include some animal limericks. Thus, let’s begin with five animal limericks, followed by five “animal crossings.” Just fill in the proverbial “blanks!”

 

1.

All the guests at the animal fair

Had to dress up before they went there.

My friend Billy Brian

Dressed up like a lion,

But I went in the nude, as a BLANK.

 

2.

3.

Who kept a large cat in a pew.

There he taught it each week

A new letter of Greek,

But it never got further than BLANK.

 

4.

The sheep farmer was proud of his wool,

But the cattle farmer’s barn was full

Of his prized cows

(Not so much his sows).

For he preferred to BLANK (three words).

 

5.

Extra credit for this one!

 

The bird office went BLANK (two words) mad,

While the wise-BLANK duck became sad.

Some profits they could not BLANK;

How to BLANK they kept trying to learn.

And the hen’s practical BLANK were really bad.

 

And now some animal crossings:

 

6.

What do you get when you cross a detective with a crocodilian?

A BLANK (two words)

 

7.

What do you get when you cross an armadillo with a chicken?

A BLANK.

 

8.

A BLANK.

 

10.

What do you get when you cross a robin’s leg, a haddock, and a hand?

Be sure to send your answers directly to me (jde31459@...) as opposed to the whole group. Whoever has answered the most of them correctly by week’s end will be declared the winner.

 

Have fun!

Below you will find a series of 6 punny limericks. Each of the first 5 verses contains a single BLANK for you to fill with a single word.

*** THE “REAL” RIDDLE ***

6.
A dame known as Doris would play
In a lighthearted comedic way
Her last role, you knew it
I think I will view it
“BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK” today

My quest for more guesses has willed it
Three players eventually killed it
But none can now claim
I must be to blame
Maybe next week they’ll come if I build it. 

[Kudos to Chris G. Bill C. & Erika E. for at least playing along]

My number of players, now two!
But still I’ll not offer a clue
If someone wants to claim
Please send me your name
Otherwise it will be you know who! 

And if you are baffled a bit
About my refusal to quit
I’ll state here and now
I still don’t know how
Though it seems only I …give a hoot

Well, there was more response to my hashtag fumble than there was to the actual riddle. I have so far collected guesses from only one player, who immediately knocked the whole thing out, but of course he’s not playing to claim. So here I sit all broken hearted.

Since I am presuming there’s no real need here for a set of clues, I will instead summarize the situation in limerick form in hopes of inspiring a few potential players to step up and become submissive. If everyone fails to respond, I’ll likely be hosting again next tweak. You know what that means don’t you? Right, more limericks! 

I love to write SELDDIR in verse
As puns go, I’ve likely done worse
Salty Navy men know
That sub missions this low
Are really sub par for the curse

Below you will find a series of 5 punny limericks. Each of the first 4 verses contains a single BLANK for you to fill with a single word. (Some are puns and some are not) Collect the proper 4 words from these verses and rearrange to turn them into a 4 word phrase that phonetically approximates a line that will logically complete the missing words in verse 5. 

Even though it may appear there’s a common theme to some of these limericks, I assure you that this is totally coincidental and really should not be interpreted as either a clue or a red herring. 

First player to submit the correctly completed verses wins the honor of hosting next week’s game. No deadline, but this sort of riddle generally falls pretty fast, so if you have any delusions about grabbing this brass ring, you should respond soon.

1.
Thought my quest for old gold was a shoe in
But this Yucatán dig’s my undoin’ 
Now I’m in big trouble
Got buried in rubble
BLANK whole life, right now, lies in ruin (#### MAYA)

2.
Embezzling’s a bad habit which is
A poor way to build up your riches
So don’t dip in the BLANK (#### TILL)
You’ll find gains, gotten ill
Is a rash move that won’t cure your itches

3.
A man of my elk, oft will find
Pursuit of big bucks on his mind
Doe won’t make me richer
But you get the picture
Take BLANK or you may fall be-hind (#### HART)

4.
Disney’s film, a strange story, does tell
About fair young maiden named Belle
Not perverse, in the least
To fall for a BLANK (#### BEAST) 
But this sort of tail seldom ends well 

(#### BEAST TILL MAYA HART)

5.
A deer buck, I’ve trained, (don’t ask how)
To break the soil, hitched to my plow
He’s doing his part
Oh, BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK!  (#### BE STILL MY HEART)
(Sounds like I’m in love with him now!)
