Date   

Rogue Riddle Status.

portagecreek
 

The status has been static. Five total guessers and fun activity on Saturday and Sunday--nothing today. Gary has solved the most followed by Cyn. No one has solved them all, however. #3 is still open if you are someone that really like a challenge. Actually only two folks have even made attempts on 3# and one of them was clever, but not quite what I was after.


########################
First off - the closing date is Tuesday at midnight EDT, but I don't think it will last that long. Someone is only one correct answer from getting all 6. Unfortunately, no one has figured that one out.

Everyone figured out quite quickly that I was attempting to associate a book title with some of our members. Only one of the people I targeted got their intended book.

There were two aimed at Stan, one of them is the mini shaggy that has not been solved. (Big Clue, goggle Stan Kegel books.) Since I have sent personal clues to everyone participating, and most of them have gone on to bingo what they were working on, I will only clue on the lone unsolved #3. Personal clues will be sent on every guess anyone makes.,

#3 as below

3. For Stan. Children's story my eye! This little story is really about a Presidents wife providing him with a Monica as a Christmas gift. He called it. Three words describes it. 'Blank's Blank Blank"

I FIRST DEDICATED THIS BOOK TO CYN AND STAN SINCE CYN HAD THE VALENTINE ROGUE TO POLITICAL FIGURES. STAN AND RICHARD, HOWEVER, HAD THE BOOK. I ALSO SLIPPED BACK HERE ON MY GOAL NEVER TO GET POLITICAL IN PUNY. THE SET UP IS OVER THE TIME OF CHRISTMAS TO NEW YEARS AND INVOLVES A PRESIDENT, AND HIS WIFE PERFORMING A SEXUAL ACT I CALLED A "MONICA". MY STRONG CLUE TONIGHT IS THE BOOK TITLE CONTAINS THREE WORDS. YOU ONLY HAVE TO PUN ON THE FIRST AND LAST.


Rogue Riddle 1014

Instead of doing this riddle by the book I'll attempt a more novel approach. The riddle covers a many topics for everyone, but with a binding theme. There are several mini shaggy stories.

As usual. First with all, or with the most at midnight Tuesday EDT gets to be next in the barrel.

Please send your guesses to gypsywagon@...

1. For Cyn. This winter has produced extreme temperature swings. Farmers who milk cows for a living have a particular problem staying warm or cool. One particular milk farm has been supplying their help with those ( used to be trendy) soft leather Australian boots, but fibbing about how much they make your feet perspire when the weather changes. Milkers have been calling this place "The ----- of --- lie -------"

2. For Stan. A little bit of Tolkien and Dylan set to music in this one. Some of the taking Tolkien trees have morphed into palms, and Bob Dylan was fond of using their branches as fans. So, he really did not sing what people thought he sung when folks jumped on the words of "Blowing in the Wind". He really meant "THE ---- are my ------".

3. For Cyn and Stan. Children's story my eye! This little story is really about a Presidents wife providing him with a Monica as a Christmas gift. He called it. Three words describes it. 'Blank's Blank Blank"

4. For Gary. WSP also barely hid his adult thoughts about trees. It was really about him loosing his intense sexual desire (when it's gone - it's gone) while helping someone have the will to live thru an epidemic similar to what China is dealing with now. Three words.

5.For Jim. A bunch of smart guys from MIT get with a pack of wolves not cards and work a way to take the pups from their mothers without them wailing and crying enough to wake the whole pack. A story about this would be
"Bringing Down the Blank".

6. For Lars. A clue for a novel he previously finished in the 10th month of the year. "Blank for Blank Blank"

midnight EST? That would be 1 AM EDT

 

Not that it makes any difference to me personally—I never get up before 2 AM and often not till 3 AM—like this morning. Stan is sometimes up at that hour, though, although he doesn’t seem to be playing with us these days. And night owls might still be up from the night before.

 

Make it a splendiferous day!

Rogue Riddle 1013 -- Flights of Fancy -- Winner Declared and Answers Revealed.

Lars Hanson
 

All,

 

    There were only two players this week, with Cyn weighing in first and Gary Reeve weighing in second.  Then all went silent and nothing was heard since Saturday.

 

    Gary is this week’s winner, and will host Rogue Riddle #1014 next week.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

Rogue Riddle 1013

 

More Flights of Fancy

 

    Back to earth this week with an apolitical riddle to transport you.  While the beer bug, um, Corona virus, seems to be what’s ale-ing folks these days and reducing travel, time to travel while bottled up in safety and comfort at home, without having to wait in lime. 

 

    As usual this week’s Rogue consists of twenty riddles, all on the same airy theme.  

 

Q:  Robert E’s king?

A:  LEE’S MAJESTY (lese majesty or majesté)

 

    Where both punned and unpunned answers are involved, full credit requires both answers.  One riddle refers to a fictitious company.

 

    As always, remember that the wording of each riddle generally has been carefully chosen both to provide clues and to avoid the use of any words in the answer.

 

    As usual, the riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday.  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 Tuesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner and will host Rogue Riddle 10148 next week.

 

    Now, sit down, buckle up, make sure your seat backs are up and tray tables are in the up and locked position, and let’s take off!

All,

 

    Well, the airfield appears to be fogged in, with only two flights which having managed to take off.  Being unable even to see the runway, no other flights have yet departed their gates.  Perhaps they are awaiting boarding, or perhaps there are aircraft difficulties?  Or maybe the baggage handlers have gone on strike?  Even our Learless Feeder has yet to essay a yoke here.

 

    For those experiencing equipment difficulties this week, some additional maintenance tips are provided below.

    Looking at the status board, is only the same two flights which have departed so far and are climbing nicely.  Apparently they realized it is no Cyn to Gary your bags on board -- that way there's no waiting for luggage on ar-reeve-al.  Other flights have yet to leave their gates.  Perhaps they are awaiting boarding, or perhaps there are mechanical difficulties?  Even our Learless Feeder has yet to essay a yoke here.

 

    Coronavirus should not keep people from these flights.  They are guaranteed germ-free and healthy!  However, this is an economy flight, and so there will be no in-flight service.  Even so, there is plenty of leg room and no charge for excess baggage.   Feel free to have a Corona while relaxing. There need be no fear on that score.

 

    For those still experiencing difficulties getting of the ground this week, some maintenance tips are provided below.

Rogue Riddle 1013

 

More Flights of Fancy

 

    Back to earth this week with an apolitical riddle to transport you.  While the beer bug, um, Corona virus, seems to be what’s ale-ing folks these days and reducing travel, time to travel while bottled up in safety and comfort at home, without having to wait in lime. 

 

    As usual this week’s Rogue consists of twenty riddles, all on the same airy theme.  

 

Q:  Robert E’s king?

A:  LEE’S MAJESTY (lese majesty or majesté)

 

    Where both punned and unpunned answers are involved, full credit requires both answers.  One riddle refers to a fictitious company.

 

    As always, remember that the wording of each riddle generally has been carefully chosen both to provide clues and to avoid the use of any words in the answer.

 

    As usual, the riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday.  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 Tuesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner and will host Rogue Riddle 10148 next week.

 

    Now, sit down, buckle up, make sure your seat backs are up and tray tables are in the up and locked position, and let’s take off!

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

In each of the following riddles, what is the name of the company which is: 

 

1.  A river in Germany?

      (5, 3 / 7) 

 

2.  Liszted?

      (3, 5 / 3, 6)

 

3.  A dream for basketball players?

      (5, 3 / 8)

 

4.  Advice for deep sea divers?

      (5, 3, 5 / 5, 8)

 

5.  Known for bombers built to pound targets in Germany?

      (8 / 8)

 

6.  Receiving ringing endorsements?

 

7.  On the eave of success?

 

8.  For Sam Snead?

 

9.  For Jane Austen novel fans?

 

10.  Requiring certain neckwear?

 

11.  Always late in takeoff and late in arrival?

 

12.  Asking for a visual vote?

  

13.  A dyslexic’s question about winter sports?

  

14.  Tunefully offering to take Irish customers out of England?

 

15.  Found in ashes? 

 

16.   Found on the shore?

 

17.  For Hindu monks?

 

18.  For large cargoes?

 

19.  For questioning a girl friend?

 

20.  For American racecar drivers?

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

  

    As always, it would be great to see more new faces this week, 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 just to have fun, so wade in!

 

    When submitting, please remember to ensure all  address all guesses, surmises, surprises, suppositions, estimates, conjectures, WAG’s, SWAG’s, stabs, pokes, and other such are sent directly to me at:
