So far only one response to the rogue and frankly rhey know the target and have most all the answer. The leader is, of course. Gary. He recognised my enhanced ability to break re - tree branches with a single stroke of a key was a super power and went on from there. 

Gary was apparently the only person that read the rogue since he noticed that the last limerick has a missing line.

So for a super bonus  - -CREATE YOUR OWN LINE FOR THE ONE MISSING.. I always wanted to play fix this pun now even it you did not feel up to playing the rogue YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO FIX IT AND NOT RISK HAVING TO HOST. I think I have Gary cornered for that with his nearly correct response.

Remember I did not put an expiration date on this rogue, but I did say you can play with the rogue with no responsibility if you don't guess at the four target lines.
++++++++++++++++++++++
for your convenience the RR 1109 is repeated ( missing line and all) below:


Just a few days ago I became aware that I possessed the enhanced ability to break tree branches remotely with but the stroke of a key. That inspired today's rogue riddle.

The game is composed of both Limericks and Haiku with BLANKS you can fill as you build clues to the set of lines that will allow a claim of a bingo ( win). As per tradition anyone can play the riddle to fill the BLANKS, but the BLANKS are just clues to the four straight lines I am seeking. If you guess at those famous lines and get them I assume you are prepaired to host the next game.

So, that's the game this week. we can all play fill the BLANKs and each guess will get a clue.
Please send guesses and get clues to gypsywagon@...
==============
now on to some poor limericks and bad haiku.
1. first line
Lift your eyes for these words to the wise,
A mask will not cover your eyes.
    If you want to make a face,
    Don't make one up in haste.
Sunglasses are still the best BLANK
************************
This BLANK is a pun on the words in the following haiku that will provide the first of the bingo straight lines.
Don't look down I cry
If you want to see him fly
BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK.

2 second line - first the lim

Kirk's verse I have always admired.
His puns never seem to grow tired.
     Kirk's lims seem to me
     To be punned poetry
He is not a punner - he's BLANK BLANK.
*****************
again those two BLANKS are a pun on the straight line in the haiku below:

Is "itsa " a new word?
Combined into what we heard?
Just say BLANK BLANK BLANK

3
From these early words freedom came.
Pamphlets were then news it is plain.
     He wrote Common Sence,
    And American Crisis.

and the haiku:

I Kent tell you why
I thought I could fly - I do
Now but, BLANK BLANK BLANK ( which is the third straight line to the wiin)

4 When one of the comforts of home,
  Was when we would gather some.
        And Hear Mom's "dinners ready"
We all had a dad and a BLANK Mom.
***********************
The haiku for the fourth and final straight line
I don't want a large.
If you are gonna resize
see that BLANK BLANK BLANK.
===========
That's it. Thats the game. All that is left is just to write those four lines and tthe bingo is yours..

Djokovic got what he de-serbed.  He is no longer the Boss-nia of tennis and has become sub-serbient to the other players.

RogueRiddle #1108 (BINGO & REVEAL)

gary hallock
 

Said before, but I’ll say it again
On a Rogue, you’re allowed to just “win”
Without claiming the game
There’s no shame and no blame
The host just wants to know that you’re in

With that said, I’ll now file my report
All the entries I’ve managed to sort
And I’m much pleased to say
That four players did play
So not everyone can just ignor’t 

Each worksheet received fully aced
All blanks were filled, properly spaced
Congrats Jim* & Bill
For your quick clever kill
And to Marilyn who also placed

And the winner, with whom I was blessed?
G.Reeves claimed the prize, had you guessed?
He will host the next riddle
With which we will fiddle
When he puts us next week to the test

[*Jim McKee - A personal friend who is not on the PUNY list, yet!]

Answers have been filled in below

Thank you all for playing,

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

Oh, this is so embarrassing. I’ve been waiting all day for guesses to come and it appears this riddle never even got delivered to PUNY. Seems the problem is that when I type “PUNY” my computer reverts back to the old Yahoo address. Thus those messages will always bounce. For whatever reason the key word for posting to the newer version of PUNY is to type “MAIN.” This, however bit of jargon is not yet in my vocabulary.

ROGUE RIDDLE #1108 - (White & Day, You Are The Pun)
Launched Saturday, Jan 8 @10am central

$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$
Send all guesses, gasps, grasps, gripes & groans direct to <gary@...>
$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$

Below you will find a series of 7 limerick verses each containing at least one BLANK word for you to fill in. Collect a single BLANK from each of the first 6 verses to assemble a 6 word sentence that will phonetically simulate another sentence that spells out yet another obscure film title from 1951.

**** TWIST ALERT **** Verse #1 contains four (count ‘em, 4) BLANK spaces for you to fill. Each of these will be the same word sound, albeit a homonym. Take your choice but the proper answer to the the “REAL riddle question” will require only one variant of this word. **** TWIST ALERT ****

To claim the game, you must provide me with all 6 properly filled BLANKS and also the properly translated 6 word film title of the Day. If my hints have not been BROAD enough, I’ve attempted to add a bonus video link at the bottom which could help guide you along.

First player to kill this enigmatic puzzle may claim the right/honor/privilege/burden of hosting ROGUE 1109 next weekend. If, however, you are disinclined to host, please don’t let this keep you from sending me some sort of response so that I might collect the validation that I so desperately seek in keeping this game afloat for LO these 20+ years.
