This has been a sad time for our group and others.  Over the years, Cyn and Stan have both helped me so much as I developed my love for puns. Limericks, and haikus.  Two huge supporters for our site here passed away during this burdensome year of losses all about us.  We’ll never have trouble remember what year it was.

#Rogue 1030 Reveal #rogue

bill crider
 

The only person to get both our shaggy dog stories was our one and only Learless Feeder, Gary Hallock. Gary will host Rogue 1031.

Reveals at the end of each story below.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. When Cliff the postman delivered packages, he was known to stop and chat with the folks he was delivering to. Like those at the bar, these conversations often became long and involved. It seemed Cliff could easily start a conversation, but could find no way to end one. If the postal customer was a lady, especially an attractive lady, the topics sometimes became inappropriate. Especially in today's sensitive times, Cliff was an anachronistic throwback to an earlier era. Eventually, of course, it got him in trouble. After repeated warnings and disciplinary actions, Cliff was eventually fired, all because of Cliff's Mail Patter Boldness (Male Pattern Baldness).

2. In an alternate universe, there is no Sahara Desert. Instead, North Africa is covered by a luxurious Sahara Forest. It is all because of the descendants of a man named Sinuheh. (True fact: In ancient Egyptian, Sinuheh means 'Son of the Sycamore.') In ancient times, North Africa was a vast grassland. But Sinuheh saw in a dream that it would become a desert. Determined that he would not allow this to happen, he began planting vast orchards of every kind of tree he could find. From these he became very wealthy, and had many wives and many sons. He raised up these sons and passed on his vision to them, and made them promise to pass it on to their sons. Through dozens of generations they continued this family tradition, and eventually all of North Africa was a vast forest because of Sinuheh's Re-Seeding Heir Line. (Receding Hair Line).

#Rogue Riddle 1030 - A big clue #rogue

bill crider
 

So far, not a single guess. 
Are these really that hard? 
OK, I'll give you a really big clue. Both these punchlines, in the punned version, are about men losing the fur off the top of their heads as they get older. Do you know how hard it is to say that without using any of the target words? Here's another clue: none of the words are repeated. 
Here's another clue: Just tell me you'll host next week, and I'll tell you the answers!

Send your guesses to bill.crider at gmail.com.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
We have not had any shaggy dog stories in a while, so I thought I would throw a couple in this week. One is original, and one is an oldie. 
A shaggy dog is a long story with a complex pun as a punchline. In this case, the puns are not really very complex - just three words. 
The puns are also based on the same topic, although the stories would not lead you to believe so. The puns have no relation to the actual stories. That is, the unpunned words complete the stories, but in shaggy dog fashion, the puns are unrelated to the story.
Don't reply all! If you do, everyone will see your guess and we will draft you to host next week. Instead send your guesses to bill.crider at gmail.com

Re: #RogueRiddle 1029 Results! #RogueRiddle

Erika Ettin
 

Update! 

We had a last-minute submission from Bill Crider who got a whopping 19 correct! He will be hosting #RogueRiddle 1030 next week! Congrats!

And small correction -- Kirk got 18 correct, not 17. :)

Lastly, some of the best non-correct responses:

Why did the ghost take the elevator?
He was Fred Astaires. (Credit: Gary H.)

What do you call a belt with a watch on it? 
The only time something so close to my junk has a twelve on it. (Thanks, Aaron. ;)) 

When does a joke become a dad joke?
As soon as nobody laughs. (Sad but true. As I always say, "Grown people make puns. Pun people make groans.")

Stung by the immense criticism they've had, Esso a decided to fund massive green energy projects; they're calling the start up investor So-Watt. Their first name idea was Raisin Current, but they thought it might raise a wrath of gripes.

An all-sexes play company recently put their works onto a DVD. Hoping for a good sale they named it Trans Acted.

#Rogue Riddle 1028 - Easy Treesy Reveal #rogue

bill crider
 

Erika "The Arborist" Ettin got 10 of 10 and has graciously agreed to host Rogue 1029 next weekend.  Marilyn Van Driesen and Jim Ertner each solved 9 of 10.  Finally, our Learless Feeder, Gary Hallock slipped in at the end with 10 of 10. Thanks to all who played! 

Herewith, the solutions for your enjoyment:

1. In Georgia, to replace an elected official you remove the old one by im-PEACH-ment. [Clue: This tree is the symbol of Georgia]

2. Gregor McTavish is an irritating Scott who constantly assaults other people in bars. Sooner or later someone is going to SUE MAC (SUMAC) . [Clue: Riddle #3 contains a major clue to the pun of #2. This small tree is often planted for its lovely red displays. It is part of a large family of small trees and bushes which include both edible and poisonous varieties.]

3. When a lawyer approaches Mac with legal papers, he usually tells them “kiss my ASH ” [Clue: This tree is common in the northern hemisphere, and it's three-letter name makes it sound obscene. It also makes it sound like what all wood turns to when it is burned.]

4. The reason Mac is so irritable is that he constantly PINEs over lost love.  [Clue: This tree is a common evergreen which is grown as a crop and used as lumber.] 

5. Whenever Mac gets into a tussle, you can be sure everyone will stop what they are doing to CEDAR (SEE THE) fight. [Clue; This tree is also used for lumber, as well as making furniture and even lining closets because it's wood repels insects.]

6. To his credit, Mac only picks fights with guys who are bigger than himself. He would never PECAN (PICK ON) on someone smaller than himself. [Clue: This tree grows a nut which is popular for baking in pies and cookies. It is the state tree of Texas.]

7. Recently people around the country had the Covid virus, but people in New York were SYCAMORE (SICK MORE). [Clue:The large planetree is native to eastern and central north America as well as Europe ]

8. Several states never went on lockdown during the pandemic. I guess they never got the MIMOSA (MEMOS). [Clue; This lovely fragrant Japanese tree shares its name with a drink made from champagne and orange juice.]

9. Enchanted by beautiful pictures of the tropical island, I flew there for my vacation. Sadly, all the trees had been destroyed by a hurricane. What I saw in the photos was the PALM (CALM) before the storm.[Clue: What kind of tree grows on tropical islands?]

10. What tree would be the best pet? A DOGWOOD (DOG WOULD)!  [Clue: You can recognize this tree by its bark! LOL]
