It’s been a while since I’ve offered one of my limerick-based games and we have collected a few new players recently, so listen closely. Below you will find a series of 4 limerick verses, each containing one or more BLANK spaces to be filled with an appropriate word. Once you’ve done this, you will have a string of 5 common words that, when properly reassembled, will phonetically simulate an easily recognized 4 word phrase. This target phrase will provide the answer to fill the 5 blanks at the end of the final (4th) verse.

First player to provide me with all 5 words as well as the final 4 word phrase will win the honor of claiming the kill and hosting the final Rogue of the year.

Imprisoned, a chess buff befriended
A fellow chess player, and then did
Carve chess men from BLANK
Thus fulfilling his hope
Yet both were washed up. (BLANK intended)

Saint George was not known much for braggin’
But the dude did subdue a large dragon
Though no one will say it
He never did BLANK it
‘Twas only hitched up to his wagon

Was the son of a most fickle madam
Though many men knew ‘er
She was BLANK of those BLA’NK
Quite fond of all men, ‘til she’s had ‘em

But in climates as cold as...say...Fargo
When driving for Uber you
Won’t use a Subaru
Try this to haul cold weather cargo

Sorry for the delayed announcement. The winner this week is Gary H with four bingos! He has agreed to create this week's riddles. Answers are below.

On the first night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a new penpal from Mexico City whose Hebrew name would be Yoni. JUAN

On the second night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… another Mexican penpal with the same name. JUAN, TOO

On the third night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a newfound desire to make onomatopoeiatic owl and pig noises. WANT HOOT REE

On the fourth night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a statement from my Mexican penpal calling for changes to the dental insurance system. JUAN'S TOOTH REFORM

On the fifth night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a magic stick that can instantly rebuild bee homes that have fallen to the ground. The same stick can also treat a symptom of anaphylaxis for folks who have fallen to the ground. NOTE: The pun is the same here for both descriptions of the wand. WAND TO TREAT FLOOR HIVES.

On the sixth night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a WiFi network that lets me pleasure myself in unconventional, jazz-like ways. Pleasure myself euphemistically, of course. WAN TO FREEFORM FIVE SEX.

On the seventh night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a scratch-off lottery ticket? I got the top prize?! Oh, it's just a pair of pines and instructions on how to gather the right number of branches to start a fire… or something. Also, they addressed me by my middle name, which is weird. On this night, I... WON TWO TREES FOR FIVE STICKS, EVEN. 

On the eighth night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a second magic stick. This one can do two things: summon a special wood-bearing plant whose certain number of branches can be used to stab somebody in prison, AND summon by buddy Nathaniel (who prefers a nickname).

Rogue Riddle #1054 (10 hour warning)

gary hallock
 

It’s highly unusual that I actually have a Rogue ready to roll, but somehow it has suddenly happened. I suppose you might consider this a Christmas miracle.

At any rate, I’ll be launching a bit earlier on Sunday than I otherwise would have, so watch for #1054 to arrive in your email box around 10am central. I know it’s a common and erroneous assumption, but I’m almost certain this one will fall quickly, so if you have any idle thoughts about claiming and hosting the final Rogue of 2020, do stand by to pick up this “quickie.”

Looks like another quiet week so far. Looking for all guesses! Two major hints for you all:

1. The puns build on each other. While the individual words do not necessarily stay the same from Riddle to Riddle, the underlying phrase just gets longer as you go through the riddles.

2. How many nights of Hanukkah are there? How many candles do you light on each night?

Looking for any and all guesses by tomorrow (Thursday) by... Midnight pdt. I have to submit grades tomorrow, so I'll be up late 😂

ROGUE RIDDLE 1053: FIRST UPDATE AND HINTS

Adam Engel
 

Shalomies, homies!

Twas a quiet first day. I assume the darkness of early winter is getting to you all. Looking forward to seeing your guesses! A few hints below...

1. On the first night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a new penpal from Mexico City whose Hebrew name would be Yoni. 

(This is one of the ten most common name in Mexico)

2. On the second night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… another Mexican penpal with the same name.

(See question 1)

3. On the third night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a newfound desire to make onomatopoeiatic owl and pig noises.

(When you get this, you will squeal with delight)

4. On the fourth night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a statement from my Mexican penpal calling for changes to the dental insurance system.

(Same Mexican penpal as question 1)

5. On the fifth night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a magic stick that can instantly rebuild bee homes that have fallen to the ground. The same stick can also treat a symptom of anaphylaxis for folks who have fallen to the ground. NOTE: The pun is the same here for both descriptions of the wand.

6. On the sixth night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a WiFi network that lets me pleasure myself in unconventional, jazz-like ways. Pleasure myself euphemistically, of course.


7. On the seventh night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a scratch-off lottery ticket? I got the top prize?! Oh, it's just a pair of pines and instructions on how to gather the right number of branches to start a fire… or something. Also, they addressed me by my middle name, which is weird. On this night, I...

8. On the eighth night of Hanukkah, my mother gave to me… a second magic stick. This one can do two things: summon a special wood-bearing plant whose certain number of branches can be used to stab somebody in prison, AND summon by buddy Nathaniel (who prefers a nickname).


REMEMBER: There is a pattern to this week's Rogue Riddle. I'm counting on you to find the pattern.

Good luck, y'all. Send guesses directly to me at adotengel@....

Best,
Adam

Two additional quick notes:

1. I know this week will get challenging, so I gave you a couple hints for when you get started on number 5.
2. There is a pattern that should become evident once you complete a number of them. Frankly, I'm counting on it.

Much love,

This week’s riddles are a little light in number as well as a little l-eight. Consider this sent on Jewish Standard Time. PLEASE submit guesses by 5PM PDT on Thursday. It’s the last night of Hanukkah, so my gift to you all will be a new winner. Will the winners be men, or a woman will take the crown? The dred’ll kill a latke of you. Good luck to the survivors :-)

This one was super fun, This theme really struck a chord and I especially enjoyed the lyrical banter. Thanks guys, really.

 

Stay tuned, no doubt, for an encore in the coming weeks. Lighters up. Or phones. Or whatever the kids do these days.

 

I haven’t been to a concert, of course, since the first week of March or so. One of the unexpected impacts of this quarantine thing is that my hearing has been returning. And I must say, I don’t like it. I hope that the Black Cat is saving my one foot of crushed in floor space by the stage right speaker bank. And, more importantly, that venues like that return, ultimately, better than ever.

 

Hear that? Let me answer it—

 

1. J.K.’s Harry Potter books are large and heavy—they are real Rowling’s Tomes.

 

2. I can’t get there because I have no talent, no money and my kids won’t let me. So in summary, what is the cause for my inability? The Cause Be Skills Cash & Young.

 

3. The father of psychiatry was known to get in touch with his feminine side, stereotypical clothing color wise. Call him Pink Freud.

 

4. Talk about togetherness. The star of Rocky and his siblings, kids and parents all got high a lot during their backyard barbeques. Come see Sly and the Family, Stoned.

 

5. The Benedictine was so mad at me that he forgot his vows and vandalized my property. I got the whole thing on my Ring cam though. Check out the YouTube clip and watch as the Monk Keys my car.

 

6. She couldn’t decide between her husband and her baseball fielding career. Whose side would she choose? Her Man’s, Her Mitt’s?

 

7. So the Flying Nun/Mrs. Doubtfire mom actress Sally asked me which coil she should polish to a high gloss.  (I get odd questions like this all the time.) It was the bottom one of course. So I said Buff a Low Spring, Field.

 

8. Soon after, no lesser a personage than Sir Paul asked if I would rather have one vehicle or a whole group of them. I said, a single vehicle would not suffice but a Fleet Would, Mac(ca).

 

9. I love animals and would never trod on one. I would never walk on FOX. I would never Step On Wolf.

 

10. Yeah, it’s good scotch. Hey Jim, pass me that bottle, not the JD, the one with the white label. Yeah, that one, The Dewers.

 

11. He got nicked for illegally selling British Schillings. That’s right, they got him for Bob Dealin’

 

12. In quarantine, Janet was a fan of different solitary activities. For example, she played jump rope on six occasions, Jacks on Five occasions, cards on four occasions, and is now ordering up some food. 

 

13. I’ve been working in the coal mines, right here in the greater DC area, and I’m pretty dirty. Shortly, I’m going to immerse myself in hot water pretreated with a vanilla smelling fizzy bomb. I’m so sooty and Black, s’Bath is what I need.

One sweep so far. Anyone else?


Rogue Riddle 1052 ROCK AND ROLL STATUS UPDATE #RogueRiddle

Speaking of a Dark Horse (That was quiet Beatle George right?), Hairy Son Adam, Eve ‘n Angels (Or do you prefer A damn even angle, if that’s a thing? I wish I had a cool punnable name. All I ever get are bird references, creatively equal in quality to “lettuce in, don’t you carrot all?”)…sorry, lost my twain of thought there…

 

So Adam, purveyor of all things rap punzaling has emerged nevertheless with a rock solid 10, tying Gary R. (different unsolved ones though) and edging out Lee (perhaps temporarilee) by just 1. However, Gary “I don’t really like rock and roll, I don’t know anything about rock and roll, I like Gilbert O’Sullivan, hey you kids get off my lawn” Hallock is still in the lead with 11.

 

One of you guys—or someone else entirely—sweep this s*** up by morning, would you?


Rogue Riddle 1052 ROCK AND ROLL #RogueRiddle

OK, so this happened.

 

I love classic rock, but punk is where my heart lies. On Sunday night, after posting these classic rock puns, and wiping my punk rock puns off the page, the conflict evidently settled deep into my subconscious because no sooner did I enter the dream state later that night did I find myself in a pun competition, and I was assigned a mashup of, GET THIS, “60s bands and punk bands.”

 

Jeez, talk about text book Freudian (Jungian?) responses.

 

And, IN THE DREAM, I came up with “Nirvanailla Fudge.”

 

I once dreamed a joke that was formed verbatim right there, got it in Laughter The Best Medicine, didn’t have to change a word, but usually dream wisdom is gibberish. This was, well, pretty damn good.

 

So the lesson is clear. The next PunSlingers I will do fast asleep.

 

Since I am awake for the time being, I congratulate the top three contestants thus far, Gary H. in the lead and Gary R. and Lee J. tied for second. Still plenty of room for a sweep, and perhaps for a Dark Horse to enter the track by, let’s say, Thursday noon. And, if you know who the Dark Horse is, you should have no trouble with any classic rock conundrum.

 

Some clues added below.

 

1. J.K.’s Harry Potter books are large and heavy—they are real BAND NAME.

Ladies and Gentlemen…you should get this.

 

2. I can’t get there because I have no talent, no money and my kids won’t let me. So in summary, what is the cause for my inability? The BAND NAME.

Like a firm with three names. Then four. Then three. Four is right.

 

3. The father of psychiatry was known to get in touch with his feminine side, stereotypical clothing color wise. Call him BAND NAME.

Ugh. I feel dirty on this one. True pun cliché. They even made a Halloween costume out of it. Like a One Night Stand.

 

4. Talk about togetherness. The star of Rocky and his siblings, kids and parents all got high a lot during their backyard barbeques. Come see BAND NAME.

What is the shortened version of the actor’s name?

 

5. The Benedictine was so mad at me that he forgot his vows and vandalized my property. I got the whole thing on my Ring cam though. Check out the YouTube clip and watch as the BAND NAME my car.

Hey Hey we’re sure no one cannot get this one. Don’t let anybody down.

 

6. She couldn’t decide between her husband and her baseball fielding career. Whose side would she choose? BAND NAME?

OK, probably the most obscure. My man Chester Brown says No one will get this. More misses, Brown?

 

7. So the Flying Nun/Mrs. Doubtfire mom actress Sally asked me which coil she should polish to a high gloss.  (I get odd questions like this all the time.) It was the bottom one of course. So I said BAND NAME.

Weird I know but, stills, for what it’s worth once you say her name you’re there.

 

8. Soon after, no lesser a personage than Sir Paul asked if I would rather have one vehicle or a whole group of them. I said, a single vehicle would not suffice but a BAND NAME.

What’s Sir Paul to his friends?

 

9. I love animals and would never trod on one. I would never walk on FOX. I would never BAND NAME.

To love the wild we are born.

 

10. Yeah, it’s good scotch. Hey Jim, pass me that bottle, not the JD, the one with the white label. Yeah, that one, BAND NAME.

Once you get the Scotch name say it out loud until it morphs into L.A.’s favorite ‘Sons.

 

11. He got nicked for illegally selling British Schillings. That’s right, they got him for BAND NAME. 

If a dollar is a buck what is a schilling?

 

12. In quarantine, Janet was a fan of different solitary activities. For example, she played jump rope on six occasions, BAND NAME occasions, cards on four occasions, and is now ordering up some food. 

Janet is no accident, and yet another Gary in the mix. This one’s truly gorgeous.

 

13. I’ve been working in the coal mines, right here in the greater DC area, and I’m pretty dirty. Shortly, I’m going to immerse myself in hot water pretreated with a vanilla smelling fizzy bomb. I’m so sooty and BAND NAME is what I need.

I’m paranoid few will get this.
