ROGUE RIDDLE #819 (Bingo & reveal)

gary hallock
 

Within minutes of my launch, Lars was all over this one but fell short of knocking it out. An hour or so later Nivi came on strong, solving the basic set of 5 on her first swing.  Before I could complete my reply to her, Chris Gross came through with a perfect worksheet, claiming the prize. 
Also in the mix with a slow start was Kirk Miller, who seems to have a good grasp on the game. 

I have filled in the expected answers below. 

Chris G. tells me he expects to launch #820 late next Sunday afternoon. 

Thank you everyone for playing,

Below you will find a list of 5 limerick verses. In each of these verses I have left one BLANK space which you should find little difficulty in filling. Once you’ve identified the 5 missing words, follow the instructions below the verses..

MVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVMVM

1.
Though he spoke just a bit like a snab
The bahxer from Bahston named Bab
Would land every punch
So I have a hunch
He was very good at his BLANK #JAB

2.
Though both were Mad Avenue greats
Both Elsie and Elmer met fates
Which most don’t desire
Their barn caught on fire
They died, as they lived - BLANK-mates #CREAM

3.
On Broadway the big hit this past
Year has been a rap musical, fast
Hip-hopping young Alex
And Aaron, his "pal-ex"
I wonder, “Are these roles BLANK cast?” #DUEL

4.
Overeater was quick to explain
When asked why spilled food did remain
On the front of his shirt
He said, “It can’t hurt
To remind me that I should BLANK-stain.” #AB

5.
Law student won’t make it, I’m thinking
His prospects are rapidly shrinking
Yes, he did all his work
But he acts like a jerk
And he can’t pass the BLANK without drinking #BAR

Now collect all 5 BLANKS below...

(BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK)  #### JAB CREAM DUEL AB BAR

Now reassemble these 5 BLANKS to phonetically simulate the name of a famous person. 

(BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK)  #### CREAM AB DUEL JAB BAR / KAREEM ABDUL JABBAR

Once you’ve done this, it should be no problem to answer the “real question” below. (Yes, the “real question” does relate to the answer above.)

The “REAL QUESTION"

After the flames die down at the Hawaiian beach party, what might you find in among the ashes in the fire pit?

(BLANK BLANK)  #### LUAU CINDER / LEW ALCINDOR 

The first player to correctly arrange all 5 BLANKS in the proper order and also supply the punned answer to the “real question” wins the honor of hosting RR #820 next weekend. Deadline is midnight Tuesday (CDT)

Punsters United Nearly Yearly (P.U.N.Y.) Yahoo! Group
Frequently Asked Questions

Written and maintained by Lee Jackson
P.U.N.Y. List Administrangler

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

I. Group Description

-----------------------------------------------------

(The following is also posted online at http:
//groups.yahoo.com/group/puny/)

Punsters United Nearly Yearly (P.U.N.Y.) is a small, unofficial
group, formed in 1990 to assist the O. Henry Home and Museum in
Austin, TX. Specifically, we help coordinate and present the
museum's largest fundraiser each year, the annual O. Henry Pun-Off
World Championships.

The O. Henry Home and Museum is actually inside the house in which
the famous short story author William Sydney Porter (a.k.a. O.
Henry) lived while in Austin. The house is listed in the National
Register of Historic Places.

The Pun-Off helps to provide operating and renovation funds for the
museum. In the process, we provide free entertainment for over
1,000 spectators each year, collecting funds through raffles, book
sales, and audience donations during the event. The Pun-Off is also
an event that allows the most twisted minds in the country,
P.U.N.Y. members and otherwise, a chance to show just how far the
English language can be bent without breaking.

Discussions shall include and mostly be limited to P.U.N.Y. status
announcements, news on other pun-related events, pun challenges and
discussions, and ideas about future fund raisers and competitions.
Basically, anything pun-related or O. Henry related is fair game.

NOTE: Some messages may contain mildly mature subject matter.
Parental discretion is advised. Please keep things at least at a PG
level if you join. ;-)

Please note that messages posted by new members are moderated at
first. This was made necessary by a number of inconsiderate
spammers. Also, please note that the moderator reserves the right
to reject and/or ban anyone who applies for membership. This is
again for anti-spam purposes, so if you join with a member name
that looks like a spammer address, you might be banned without
notice. If you are a legitimate user and you experience problems
with any of this, please notify the listowner.

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

II. Questions About Messages

-----------------------------------------------------

1. Why was my post returned to me as spam?

At some point during your stay in the P.U.N.Y. group here on Yahoo!
Groups, you may receive a message in response to one of your posts
that looks something like this:

To: (deleted for privacy - LJ)
Subject: Error [puny] re: (deleted for privacy - LJ)
From: SpamHold <spam.hold@...>
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 2003 12:07:23 -0600

Your message was filtered by NEMX Spam Filter. Please note that
the intended Recipient did not receive this message.

NOTICE OF CONFIDENTIALITY This communication is intended to be
confidential and solely for the use of the persons or entities
addressed above. If you are not an intended recipient, be
aware that the information contained herein may be protected
from unauthorized use by privilege or law, and any copying,
distribution, disclosure, or other use of this information is
prohibited. If you have received this communication in error,
please contact the sender by return e-mail immediately, and
delete or destroy all copies. Thank you for your cooperation.

Don't panic. This is not your fault.

Why did it happen? I wish I knew. I can tell you what is going
on, though. Someone in our group, be they an active member or just
an observer, has set up a mail program to auto-forward messages
from our group to an address within the mpcdoc.com domain. The
mail server at mpcdoc.com is then marking certain group messages as
spam and then returning error messages. The rest of the group does
not see the error messages, since they are addressed directly to
the original sender.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to trace things once the forwarding
is done, since the SpamHold filter does not include any header
information from the original message.

I have contacted the people at the mpcdoc.com domain, and they are
completely baffled by the situation. They don't know which of
their users is the target of the redirected mail, since SpamHold
apparently deletes the messages before they can look at the
headers.

In other words, there's nothing that can be done to solve the
matter.

In the meantime, if you never want to see one of these messages
again, set up a filter within your mail program. Have it delete
any messages that come from spam.hold@..., and that'll do
the trick.

-----------------------------------------------------

2. Why am I getting messages with [spam] in the subject line?

Yahoo! Groups has implemented a new feature recently called
SpamGuard. This is an apparent response to a persistent problem
with spam sneaking through into group messages. The following two
links contain information on how SpamGuard works:

http://groups.yahoo.com/local/service-spamguard.html
http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/groups/abuse/abuse-08.html

Here's a quote from Yahoo!'s description of SpamGuard:

"Yahoo! Groups routes messages sent to your group
through SpamGuard. If we detect that a message is
spam, we will notify you and include the message as
an attachment. If you use a Yahoo! Mail email address
for your group, these messages will automatically get
routed to your Bulk folder.

"If you do not use Yahoo! Mail, or if you use POP
access to read your Yahoo! Groups messages in your
email client (e.g., Outlook), you can set up filters
to route these messages to an appropriate folder,
such as 'spam' or 'bulk.'"

There are two problems that I've seen with this so far. The first
problem is that it is a bit overzealous. It marks some very
obviously non-spam messages as spam. The second problem is that it
can break e-mail filters on users' systems. For example, if you
use filters in your e-mail program (Outlook, Pegasus, Eudora, or in
my case, Agent) to route incoming messages into folders, this might
screw things up and result in P.U.N.Y. messages going into your
generic inbox (or worse, trash folder) instead.

There's nothing that can be done about the first problem, but you
can do something to address any filter difficulty you may
encounter. Read the information at this link:

http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/groups/abuse/abuse-10.html

It will show you what you need to get your filter to recognize
SpamGuard-processed messages.

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

III. Web Addresses and Contact Information

-----------------------------------------------------

To visit the P.U.N.Y. group on the web, go to:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/puny/

You will be prompted to set up a Yahoo! profile (if you don't
already have one) before the system will let you into the group's
site. There's no charge for this.

Once you're on the group site, you can manage your group
membership (including unsubscription), set delivery options, and do
generally a bunch of other stuff.

To unsubscribe from the group without visiting the site, send a
blank e-mail message (no subject text or body text required) to
this address:

puny-unsubscribe@...

Yahoo! Groups usage terms can be found at:

(NOTE: Spam prevention measures in place - replace the "AT" with
an @ sign and delete the spaces before using the above address.)

Rogue Riddle #818: status report #4 and Clue #1

James Ertner
 

Stan has now also correctly answered #7, giving him a total of three (or 43% as Lars would report).

 

Clue #1: If you’re having trouble with these, let me give you the answer to #4 as an example: One is pouring with rain, and the other is roaring with pain.

Gary H has now correctly answered #1 and #5, so maybe that will inspire the rest of you to join in the fun.

There have been no more players since my first status report. If this trend continues another day, I will retire Rogue #818 and relinquish the honors of hosting the next one to Nivi (assuming she still wants to do so). As for me, I’ll be leaving early Thursday a.m. for 12 days of being AFK.

Only two players so far: Joseph got #1 and #4, and Stan got #4. But neither of them will be able to host next weekend. So the game is still wide open.

The format of this Rogue is the same as my last two or three Rogues, namely, the riddle question takes the form of “What’s the difference between X and Y?” And the answer is in the form of “One is SOMETHING and the other is SOMETHING ELSE.”
