Re: RR 1095 took Byte off the Apple - reveal

portagecreek
 

Thanks for asking, I was going to peel this apple one slice at a time - unless someone apeals.

#1. Something crashed the string of weekly rogues, but the cause has been identified. ( I did not just Cook this up ) It's one of my Jobs to let you know it was not the host that choked, but rather his computer. Yes it was BLANK.

 

And a hint of the every guess gets a clue  --- that was the core of the crash. I am sure that the right answer would stick in your throat. Just remember that soon we will be bobbing for these.

 

What I wanted and got was ADAM'S APPLE.

 

========

 

Reveal 2 will be soon and may be too revealing.

If the lion could not walk a strayed line but meandered back and forth, are its tracks those of a lioneSS?

#RogueRiddle 1095 status #RogueRiddle

Gary Reeves
 

Players,

No one has quite completed a sweep by getting all the answers, but I can tell you that::

 We do have a leader.

All but one of the riddles has been solved

Only one player has picked up the theme I am picking on, so before I pack up lets get familiar with the name of this rogue:

"Up N At 'Em" is the first clue.   Break it into two parts of only two words. Now think of street talk or what the Urban dictionary would define as-  a very sexual term, usually inappropriate for the first word. Then say the whole thing over and over until it hits you. Then you might be the first person to solve them all.

The author Gary
======================================
The rules remain the same. First guesser with all the correct answers or first with the most before the end of time ( Wednesday at 9::00 EDT) has the win and becomes the host of the next weeks rogue. Please let me know on your first guess if you are willing to host.

The Blank may represent as many words as necessary to produce the pu.

The rules have changed. You have only to produce the punny answer for a bingo. 

Every guess gets a hint, and the first hint is in the name of this rogue. There is a theme.

Please send your guesses to gypsywagon@...

4. You could say the computer just blew up but frankly it turned out to be an BLANK.

Rogue Riddle 1094 - Winner Declared and Answers Revealed

Lars Hanson
 

All,
 
    There were four players this week.  Jim E. was the first, with Doug G. right on his heels. Gary R. quickly weighed in with 8 clean kills, and had all ten riddle solved in just a little over one day!  Gary H. entered the fray late, but still did well, finishing just behind Doug G. 
 
    Well done to Gary R.  
 
    Gary Reeve will host Rogue Riddle #1095 this coming weekend.
 
    As expected, these riddles fell rather quickly.
 
    The riddle statistics currently are as follows:
 
4 correct         1:   5
3 correct         6:   3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9
2 correct         1:   1
1 correct         2:   2, 10
 
    Quite obviously, this week’s theme was musical instruments.  Answers are below.
 
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 
 
Rogue Riddle #1094
Instrumental in Recovery
 
    This week’s Rogue Riddle consists of ten riddles, each of which has two answers.  There is a particular theme this week, and twigging to it will help guide guesses.
 
    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 #1095 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.
     
    Now, on to the riddles.
 
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 
 
1.  The stream was a great lace for fishing.  The man took his boat out, anchored in his favorite spot, and cast the lure into he water, hoping to catch a BLANK.
        BASS SOON / BASSOON
 
2.  He joined the string section, but did not mix as well with the ladies because of his indelicate language.  He quickly was thrown out because of his BLANK comments.
       LUTE / LEWD
 
3.  What did Ms. Barton used to keep here hair up?  A BLANK, of course!
     CLARA NET / CLARINET
 
4.  The orchestra’s string section was quite crowded, yet they still managed to add a one more instrument.  There’s always room for BLANK. 
      CELLO / JELL-O (or JELLO)
 
5.  Another member of the orchestra was arrested to protect the public.  It turned out he had a long record of BLANK.
      VIOLINS / VIOLENCE
    (Jim Ertner had an even better answer:  SAX AND VIOLINS / SEX AND VIOLENCE)
 
6.  They put the small piano on casters so that despite its size they could still BLANK.
      SPINET / SPINET
 
7.  Several musicians argued over spaces for their bulky instruments, but eventually the matter was settled.  Of course, the settlement was known as the BLANK.
      HARPS ACCORD / HARPSICORD
 
8.  This musician regularly called a well known department store on his BLANK.
      SAKS –O-PHONE / SAXOPHONE
 
9.  Some people playing the lottery will choose a high number, while others will BLANK one.
       PICK A LOW / PICCOLO
 
10.  It was  a rather unusual dance – the band played only large stringed instruments, and the affair became  known as the BLANK.
        BASS BALL / BASEBALL
 
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 
 
    Thank you all for playing!
 
    Looking forward to Rogue Riddle #1095.
 
    Take it away, Gary!
 
    Aloha,

        Lars
