Never suck glass; always blow it. If you suck it you'll get a pane in your stomach.

There are some on this list, I am certain
Who, for better writ lim’ricks are hurtin’
Four better or verses
Send guesses or curses
I am, with insanity, flirtin’

I need some more people to play
The answer’s a film of Miss Day
With just six words in it
Needn’t claim if you win it
As I’m always careful to say

It can’t be you haven’t a clue
But here are a few more for you
Like this here nifty one
‘Twas the year ‘fifty one
I suppose you could google that too

And in case you’re still making excuse
Here’s another big hint you can use
This can’t be so hard
Danny Thomas co-starred
And also his Uncle Tonoose

All,

    I have been in touch with Joseph, and he reports that things are getting better for him.  He is confined to his bed, but at least is at home now, with home care being provided for him.  The medical staff have been working to "fine-tune" his pain medications, trying to get the combination correct, and are having improving success in doing so.  

    Joseph asked me to send his best to all. 

    For those who would like to contact him, his current e-mail address is:

Rogue Riddle 1107 - Winners Declared and Answers Revealed

Lars Hanson
 

All,

 

    Just four players this week – the two Gary’s, Jim, and Chris.

 

    Gary R. came in remarkably strongly right off the bat, solving eleven of the riddles in his first guesses, just ten hours after the riddles were launched. Our Learless Feeder followed shortly thereafter, at the eleven-hour point, killing nine of the riddles in his first worksheet.  Jim came in just eleven minutes after Gary H. with nine kills, followed at the fourteen-hour point by Chris, with eight kills in his first set of guesses.  Gary H. persisted and took the lead, eventually scoring 15 kills, for a final score of 75%.

 

    Gary H. will host Rogue Riddle #1108 next week.

 

    The final riddle status is as follows:

 

4 correct – 6:  1, 2, 3, 8, 17, 20

3 correct – 3: 7, 15, 19 

2 correct       – 2:  5, 9

1 correct – 5:  4, 12, 13, 16, 18

0 correct       – 4: 6, 10, 11, 14, Bonus 1 and Bonus 2

Unattempted          – 1: 10, Bonus 2

 

    One-quarter of the riddles – five riddles – were solved by every player within 14 hours of the Rogue Riddle launch, just six minutes into the New Year.

 

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


Rogue Riddle #1107

A New Start

 

    This is the first Rogue Riddle of the year, and as such .

 

    This week’s Rogue Riddle consists of twenty riddles, but in a different mix from past Rogue Riddles.

 

    Because of the recent resurgence in interest in limericks, and in a nod to the recent riddle format of our founder, Gary Hallock, this week’s Rogue Riddle set consists of fourteen limericks, and will be posted both on PUNY and on the Limericks ‘n’ Haiku list (which I began back in 1998).

 

    The fifteen answers to these fourteen limericks can be rearranged to form two sentences appropriate to this week’s Rogue’s theme.  These two sentences form bonus riddles. 

 

    To round out the number of riddles to the usual twenty, five more riddles have been added to the fourteen limericks.  Each of these riddles has punned and unpunned answers, each of which must be provided for full credit.

 

    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 #1108 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 the punned word.

 
    There is a theme, which should become obvious as one begins to solve the riddles.
 
    Now, on to the riddles.
 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

        1.

The hoop’s a piece of jewelry gear

An adornment there or here.

While some suppose

It’s best in the nose,

Some others lobe the BLANK.

 

EAR

 

2.

The scared coven of witches

Was overcome with serious twitches:

They learned the crowd

Had been allowed

To harry them with BLANK.

 

SWITCHES

 

3.

The creature really was new,

Resembled no other I knew.

A wilder beast

Come from the east --

They tell me its called a BLANK.

 

GNU

 

4.

Yet another West End day,

At a truly cunning play,

Whose clever capper

Elicited a dapper

And very English, “BLANK!”

 

I SAY

 

        5.  BLANK:  A surprising divine or supernatural disclosure reached after a night of noisy carousing.

 

             REVELATION

 

         6.  BLANK:  To purchase something to give to a particular actress.

 

               BIFURCATE / BUY FOR CATE


               The clue given was:  “I hear the purchase could involve a split.”

               BUY FOR CATE sounds like BIFURCATE, hence the “I hear.”

 

7.

The headman’s axe’s not for free –

Its victim pays the BLANK.

Ask not for whom

The empty tomb –

It takes a toll of BLANK. 

 

FEE / THEE

 

8.

They say that those who sell

Their souls for gain are fell.

Among the worst,

And vilely cursed --

And they shall go to BLANK.

 

HELL

 

         9.  When faced with a homeless person behaving quite strangely and irrationally, why might trimming his fingernails help settle the person down?  Because it’s a BLANK.

 

               MANICURE / MANIC CURE

 

        10.  BLANK:  Something usually carried on the bottle of rich, sweet wine.

 

                PORT AGE / PORTAGE

 

11.

Expressing the year in one-six,

The number is easy to fix –

A simple relation:

They founded the nation

In 17 BLANK.

 

7E6 / SEVENTY-SIX 

 

This one requires some explanation, obviously.

 

Line one talks about “Expressing the year in one-six.”  The clues given were:

  • This is the tricky one!  Read it very carefully to get to first base for the punned answer and to get the target.
  • In particular, read the first line carefully.

    The current year, 2022, expressed in base 16 (octal), is 7E6

    That fills in the blank in the last line. 

 

12.

In schoolyard:  “Are not! And you

Alone won’t force me to!” 

Anyone can see

That he’s with me --

 And thus I reply, “Am BLANK.”

 

TWO

 

       13.  The two musicians, who played the same instrument, had been competing while playing in their orchestra, to the detriment of the music.  They finally reached an agreement.   Naturally, that quickly became known by the name of yet another instrument – the BLANK.

 

        HARPS ACCORD / HARPSICHORD

 

14.


A curious impediment was met

The answer provided was set.

She offered the sod

To lie on a cod  

He replied he’d rather a BLANK.

 

BET

 

The key here was the swapping of the letters D and T in words related to bedding.  Thus “cot” became “sod,” and “bed” became “bet.”  The letter switches allowed the rhyme to work and also got the correct words for sue in the bonus answers.  A bit abstruse, but the answer being sought, BET, was indicated clearly by the rhyme scheme..  One player got the punned answer correctly. 

 

15.

There once was a man who could tell

That all was going just swell

The reason, you see,

Was simple to see

Just look at the ending: it’s “BLANK.”

 

WELL

 

        16.  BLANK:  The cloak worn by Superman to get away from danger.

 

                S CAPE /ESCAPE

 

17.

There once was a rabbit named Poppy

Whose motion was quite hard to copy --

No walking at all,

And never a crawl.

Indeed that bunny was BLANK.

 

HOPPY

 

18.

A computer geek to the core,

Gave a doubly good talk on the floor.

His colleagues amazed,

The world he dazed –

He’d managed a base of BLANK

 

FOUR

 

19.

At the plate old Casey took a stand

His trusty bat within his hand.

But with bases loaded

Their hopes exploded --

When the inning was done he’d BLANK.

 

FANNED

 

20.

The carpenter’s on the ball,

He knows when arguing a call,

To make a point

Within this joint

One really needs a BLANK.

 

AWL

 

Bonus questions:  What two appropriate sentences might be formed from the fifteen answers to the fourteen limericks?

 

HOPPY GNU EAR TWO AWL/

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

 

BET SWITCHES FOUR I SAY FANNED HELL FEE, WELL THEE 7E6

BEST WISHES FOR A SAFE AND HEALTHY, WEALTHY 2022

 

   These seemed appropriate for the first Rogue Riddle of the New Year, which was launched on New Year’s Day 2022.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

    Thank you all for playing!

 

    Looking forward to Rogue Riddle #1108.

 

    Take it away, Gary H.! 

 

    Aloha,

Okay, here are some more clues, plus a minor (inconsequential) typographical error has been corrected in #11, and another clue has been provided fir this one.

 

    The current riddle status remains is as follows:

While some suppose

It’s best in the nose,

Some others lobe the BLANK.

2.

The scared coven of witches

Was overcome with serious twitches:

They learned the crowd

Had been allowed

To harry them with BLANK.

(8)

 

3.

The creature really was new,

Resembled no other I knew.

A wilder beast

Come from the east --

They tell me its called a BLANK.

(3)

 

4.

Yet another West End day,

At a truly cunning play,

Whose clever capper

Elicited a dapper

And very English, “BLANK!”

(1, 3)

        Surprising that only one player has gotten this one.  As the Englishman might remark upon learning the answer, BLANK.

 

        5.  BLANK:  A surprising divine or supernatural disclosure reached after a night of noisy carousing.

              (10)

 

        6.  BLANK:  To purchase something to give to a particular actress.

              (3, 3, 4 / 9)

              I hear the purchase could involve a split.

 

7.

The headman’s axe’s not for free –

Its victim pays the BLANK.

Ask not for whom

The empty tomb –

It takes a toll of BLANK. 

(3, 4)

 

8.

Their souls for gain are fell.

Among the worst,

        9.  When faced with a homeless person behaving quite strangely and irrationally, why might trimming his fingernails help settle the person down?  Because it’s a BLANK.

               (5, 4 / 8)

 

        10.  BLANK:  Something usually carried on the bottle of rich, sweet wine.

                (4, 3 / 7)

                An easy one if one remembers that information can be carried on a bottle.

 

11.

Expressing the year in one-six,

The number is easy to fix –

A simple relation:

They founded the nation

In 17 BLANK.

(3 / 7-3)

This is the tricky one!  Read it very carefully to get to first base for the punned answer and to get the target.

In particular, read the first line carefully.

        (Everyone has gotten the unpunned answer.)

 

12.

In schoolyard:  “Are not! And you

Alone won’t force me to!” 

Anyone can see

That he’s with me --

 And thus I reply, “Am BLANK.”

(3)

        There are three possible answers here.  The set-up indicates which of the three is correct.

 

        13.  The two musicians, who played the same instrument, had been competing while playing in their orchestra, to the detriment of the music.  They finally reached an agreement.   Naturally, that quickly became known by the name of yet another instrument – the BLANK.

                (5, 6 / 11)

                Think of another word for agreement, and the answer should become clear.  I am not just stringing everyone along here.

 

       14.

A curious impediment was met

The answer provided was set.

She offered the sod

To lie on a cod – 

He replied he’d rather a BLANK.

15.

There once was a man who could tell

That all was going just swell

The reason, you see,

Was simple to see

Just look at the ending: it’s “BLANK.”

(4)

 

        16.  BLANK:  The cloak worn by Superman.

               (1-4, or 1, 4 / 6)

               What does Superman wear?  

 

17.

There once was a rabbit named Poppy

Whose motion was quite hard to copy --

No walking at all,

And never a crawl.

Indeed that bunny was BLANK.

(5)

 

18.

A computer geek to the core,

Gave a doubly good talk on the floor.

His colleagues amazed,

The world he dazed –

He’d managed a base of BLANK

(4)

        Another straightforward riddle which should pose no problems.  A key word is in the last line.

 

19.

At the plate old Casey took a stand

His trusty bat within his hand.

But with bases loaded

Their hopes exploded --

When the inning was done he’d BLANK.

(6)

 

20.

The carpenter’s on the ball,

He knows when arguing a call,

To make a point

Within this joint

One really needs a BLANK.

(3)

         Bonus Question 1:  (5, 3, 3, 3, 3 / 5, 3, 4, 2, 3)

 

         Bonus Question 2:  (3, 8, 4, 1, 3, 6, 4, 3, 4, 3, 3 / 4, 6, 3, 1, 4, 3, 7, 7, 4)

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

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

All,

 

    All is quiet still.  Has everyone given up on this set of Rogue Riddles?

 

    The current riddle status remains is as follows:

 

4 correct – 6:  1, 2, 3, 8, 17, 20

3 correct – 3: 7, 15, 19 

2 correct       – 2:  5, 9

1 correct – 5:  4, 12, 13, 16, 18

0 correct       – 4: 6, 10, 11, 14, Bonus 1 and Bonus 2

Unattempted          – 1: 10, Bonus 2

 

    One-quarter of the riddles – five riddles – were solved by every player within 14 hours of the Rogue Riddle launch, just six minutes into the New Year.

 

Hints:  

  • One of the 4.0 busters is number 11.  This one requires very careful reading of the set-up to get correct.
  • In general, it pays to read the set-up carefully.  While the limerick form provides  a key clue to the answer in the form of rhyme, on some there may seem to be several possible answers.  The set-up should indicate which answer is being sought.  

Clue Set 1:  The letter counts for the first five riddles are provided below.

 

Clue Set 2:  The letter counts for the second five riddles are provided below.

 

Clue Set 3:  The letter counts for the third five riddles are provided below.

Rogue Riddle #1107

A New Start

 

    This is the first Rogue Riddle of the year, and as such .

 

    This week’s Rogue Riddle consists of twenty riddles, but in a different mix from past Rogue Riddles.

 

    Because of the recent resurgence in interest in limericks, and in a nod to the recent riddle format of our founder, Gary Hallock, this week’s Rogue Riddle set consists of fourteen limericks, and will be posted both on PUNY and on the Limericks ‘n’ Haiku list (which I began back in 1998).

 

    The fifteen answers to these fourteen limericks can be rearranged to form two sentences appropriate to this week’s Rogue’s theme.  These two sentences form bonus riddles. 

 

    To round out the number of riddles to the usual twenty, five more riddles have been added to the fourteen limericks.  Each of these riddles has punned and unpunned answers, each of which must be provided for full credit.

 

    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 #1108 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 the punned word.

 
    There is a theme, which should become obvious as one begins to solve the riddles.
 
    Now, on to the riddles.
 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

        1.

The hoop’s a piece of jewelry gear

An adornment there or here.

While some suppose

It’s best in the nose,

Some others lobe the BLANK.

(3)

 

2.

The scared coven of witches

Was overcome with serious twitches:

They learned the crowd

Had been allowed

To harry them with BLANK.

(8)

 

3.

The creature really was new,

Resembled no other I knew.

A wilder beast

Come from the east --

They tell me its called a BLANK.

(3)

 

4.

Yet another West End day,

At a truly cunning play,

Whose clever capper

Elicited a dapper

And very English, “BLANK!”

(1, 3)

 

        5.  BLANK:  A surprising divine or supernatural disclosure reached after a night of noisy carousing.

              (10)

 

        6.  BLANK:  To purchase something to give to a particular actress.

              (3, 3, 4 / 9)

              I hear the purchase could involve a split.

 

7.

The headman’s axe’s not for free –

Its victim pays the BLANK.

Ask not for whom

The empty tomb –

It takes a toll of BLANK. 

(3, 4)

 

8.

They say that those who sell

Their souls for gain are fell.

Among the worst,

And vilely cursed --

And they shall go to BLANK.

(4)

 

        9.  When faced with a homeless person behaving quite strangely and irrationally, why might trimming his fingernails help settle the person down?  Because it’s a BLANK.

               (5, 4 / 8)

 

      10.  BLANK:  Something usually carried on the bottle of rich, sweet wine.

              (4, 3 / 7)

              An easy one if one remembers that information can be carried on a bottle.

 

11.

Expressing the year in one-six,

The number is easy to fix –

A simple relation:

The founded the nation

In 17 BLANK.

(3 / 7-3)

This is the tricky one!  Read it very carefully to get to first base for the punned answer and to get the target.

(So far, everyone has gotten the unpunned answer.)

 

12.

In schoolyard:  “Are not! And you

Alone won’t force me to!” 

Anyone can see

That he’s with me --

 And thus I reply, “Am BLANK.”

(3)

 

         13.  The two musicians, who played the same instrument, had been competing while playing in their orchestra, to the detriment of the music.  They finally reached an agreement.   Naturally, that quickly became known by the name of yet another instrument – the BLANK.

                 (5, 6 / 11)

 

14.


A curious impediment was met

The answer provided was set.

She offered the sod

To lie on a cod – 

He replied he’d rather a BLANK.

(3 / 3)

        There is a pattern of swaps here.  By providing both answers, the swap is identified.

 

15.

There once was a man who could tell

That all was going just swell

The reason, you see,

Was simple to see

Just look at the ending: it’s “BLANK.”

(4)

 

        16.  BLANK:  The cloak worn by Superman.

               (1-4, or 1, 4 / 6)

 

17.

There once was a rabbit named Poppy

Whose motion was quite hard to copy --

No walking at all,

And never a crawl.

Indeed that bunny was BLANK.

(5)

 

18.

A computer geek to the core,

Gave a doubly good talk on the floor.

His colleagues amazed,

The world he dazed –

He’d managed a base of BLANK

(4)

 

19.

At the plate old Casey took a stand

His trusty bat within his hand.

But with bases loaded

Their hopes exploded --

When the inning was done he’d BLANK.

(6)

 

20.

The carpenter’s on the ball,

He knows when arguing a call,

To make a point

Within this joint

One really needs a BLANK.

(3)

 

Bonus questions:  What two appropriate sentences might be formed from the fifteen answers to the fourteen limericks?

 

Bonus Question 1:  (5, 3, 3, 3, 3 / 5, 3, 4, 2, 3)

 

Bonus Question 2:  (3, 8, 4, 1, 3, 6, 4, 3, 4, 3, 3 / 4, 6, 3, 1, 4, 3, 7, 7, 4)

 

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

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

 

    And it would be great to see more new faces to begin the new year, 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! 

 

    Please remember to ensure all guesses, surmises, suppositions, estimates, conjectures, SWAG’s, stabs, pokes, and other such are sent directly to me at:

Re: New Chat: Chat you? #chat-notice

gary hallock
 

[I am double posting my reply to the “MissElainey” sub-group as, if there were any to be had, this message would likely bring any sort of random punny banter to a grinding halt. If you are inspired to respond with a wordy reply, please let’s try to re-direct this conversation there.] <MissElainey@puny.groups.io>

My experience has been that chat windows are typically used for inspiring and facilitating conversations or comments with other people who are sharing a live event. (e.g. Rocket launches, Superbowl or political conventions) I don’t think any of us imagine that we’re likely to generate that level of participation with punning or limerick threads.

For large things such as these, keeping up with the stream of comments will usually overwhelm most people and serious or clever contributions will be largely ignored or lost.

In recent years we have even seen some of this type activity related to the O.Henry Pun-Off but most physical attendees probably don’t bother to follow it, as it would obviously diminish your ability to appreciate the “in person” aspects.

I have to applaud G.Reeves for attempting to tempt us into some real time exchanges, but it’s obvious this would complicate things for many and ultimately detract from the little bit of energy that we currently have for punny chatter.  Yes, I would certainly like to participate in some “real time” banter of free association, but since it’s apparently rare that more than 3-4 of us are on simultaneously, such a thing would need to be engineered and scheduled to be very effective. As the bulk of our postings these days consist of either Limerick battles or Rogue Riddles, I don’t really see how either of these diversions would be made any better or simpler by being conducted on a chat window. 

I have long played and much enjoyed pun battles with pals on FaceBook and find that to be quite invigorating. I also keep clusters of friends entertained via several direct texting threads, so I’m seldom at a loss for wordplay. 

In summary, I’m not opposed to opening up a chat window and experimenting with it some, but I really don’t see how it’s going to add participants or content to our group. I’d be happy to be proven wrong.

Merk,

    So do I.  Using the chat function was Gary Reeves’ suggestion.

    There is no real gain with the chat function that I can see.  The only advantage seems to be that comments are kept in order and the response time is a bit shorter.

    Like you, I think e-mail seems the better choice for a number of reasons, not least of which is that it provides a bit more permanence and sortability.

    Aloha,

        Lars

Thanks, Lars.  I enjoy read them, but I prefer the context of email for many reasons too boring to explain.
