#Rogue RIddle 1028 - GIve-away clues #rogue

Erika Gayle Ettin got seven trees right on her first try, and James Ertner chopped down seven by his second try. Can anyone do better? Or maybe Ericka and Jim can sweep all ten?

Added to the text below are what I consider give-away clues that should enable everyone to finish off these puns.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Even if you have the IQ of Forrest Gump you should be able to get these puns. They are all easy puns on common trees.  If you’re knot inclined to host, play along anyway.
Send your guesses to bill.crider at gmail.com. Don’t reply all!
`````````````````
1. In Georgia, to replace an elected official you remove the old one by im-BLANK-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 BLANK BLANK. [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 BLANK” [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 BLANKs 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 BLANK 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 BLANK 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 BLANK. [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 BLANK. [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 BLANK before the storm.[Clue: What kind of tree grows on tropical islands?]

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

Rogue Riddle number1027 #rogueriddle (BINGO and REVEAL) #RogueRiddle

I rounded up a fairly dismal turnout for my jinxed Rogue this week. (You might think I’d have learned this lesson by now.) I was unable to jitney one to make a clean sweep, but the players included Lars, Bill, Marilyn and Jim. Unsurprisingly, Bill did well and also was willing to claim, so the game goes again back to him. Expect him to post #1028 some time this weekend. 

For those who care, my required answers have been filled in below.

Thank you for playing,

Gary Hallock
================

Apparently I have placed too many carts before the hoards. Here it is Tuesday afternoon and I have still only received guesses from one (non-claiming) player. 

Time for me to rethink this riddle and simplify the game! 

Please note below that I have now offered you a scrambled listing of my 12 target words. In order to play/claim, you now need only match these 12 words to my 12 riddles. Is anyone even interested here?

ROGUE RIDDLE #1027 - HOARSE AND BUGGY! 

Even though the 43rd Annual O.Henry Pun-Off World Championships have been postponed, we still like to think that some sort forms of competition are still in order and will be followed. Of course most human sports have been suspended, so I thought it only appropriate that I offer a little something for people who are still interested in following teams. This sort of team, however, will never be found in the SHAY stadium but instead have come directly from the LANDAU the O.Henry Pun-Off. Time to TROT out an experimental category for our next PunSlinger competition. ***  HORSE DRAWN VEHICLES. ***

Below you will find a dozen brief riddles based on things you might find following horses. DERBY plenty more than the two clever ones and the other TANDEM ones I’ve offered. I’ve had to disCART quite a few target terms that I DENNET know how to use and were RULLEY hard to define, so I had trouble PHAETON them in. Also because GHARRY’s wit is so DRAY and my computer is already driving me BUGGY, I would NODDY-ven be able to reach a FOURGON conclusion this week. (I really need to work at a BRITSKA pace.) 

As is our usual custom, the first guesser with the most (or all) kills, wins the dubious honor of hosting/posting the Rogue next week. If you do not consider yourself a contender for this honor, please do not let this dissuade you from participating. I am mostly here to entertain you. Please prove to me that I am not KARROZZIN the line with this one.

Rogue Riddle 1026 is OVEr - really OVEr

portagecreek
 

Thanks to all that played last Sunday. Thanks very much to Diana for solving the whole bunch.

Thanks to Gary Hallock from saving me from continuing to pound on #5 of the jingle bunch. Gary solved quite a few on his first guess including a couple of partials easily claiming the next RR since Diana passed after some consideration.

Oh yes #5. Here is a little blurb from Wikipedia:

A Man Called Ove is a 2012 novel by Fredrik Backman, a Swedish columnist, blogger and writer. It was published in English in 2013. The English version reached the New York Times Best Seller list 18 months after it was published and stayed on the list for 42 weeks. Wikipedia.

He won Punniest OVE Show.

Re: George M

Sorry, I got busy and didn’t respond with further guesses. I hate to give you a Saab story but I’m clueless still.

I think its time for you to come clean and announce who is hosting/posting this weekend. Did Dianna ever stop her waffling? She kept Bill and me in suspenders right up to the last minute before.

Ah, a hero appears and even on the first guess has moved into a solid second place behind Diana. I'll see if I can string them along before announcing that will indeed host the next RR.

Oddly only one person, ( Diane of course ) has solved my favorite of the jingles - #5 which was - as hinted an attempted pun on a Pun Off event:

Rogue Riddle 1026 status

portagecreek
 

Sunday was very active. There was no shortage of players, with five of six fast responders creating correct solutions to one or more of the Burma-Shave type riddles.

Actually,
Diana breezed thru the whole bunch in a crossfire of clues and bingos. Diana, however, will pass on hosting the next rogue riddle.

Every one who played either declared beforehand... or afterward - that they were not willing to host.

So, what to do? I am debating either just letting this riddle ride until someone guesses again with the intent of winning and hosting 1027, or putting out 1026.2 myself next week with the stipulation that you if you play you have to be responsible enough to repay.

Stay tuned, I'll clue you in.

Mean while: What do you call the prize when the farmer won a John Deere to scoop up and pile bull droppings?

The Rogue Dawns 1026 #RogueRiddle

portagecreek
 

Rogue rested last night.

Here is insight

If you don't want

To loose

Try looking at CLUES



Since half the guessers got #1 I will end the clues, butt give some on the other four. The next two riddles are about people we see here in our PUNY world. I'm not yet calling names. The last two are jest puns on the two games normally played in the normal PunOff.

So #2 and #3 are persons puns.

#4 and #5 are PunOff Puns.

Here are the Jingles again. ( I can jest hear Andy Divine reading them):

Remember they are fake Burma-Shave signs.

( bonus clue - what do you think inspired #2 )

Example:


HER CHARIOT
RACED 80 PER
THEY HAULED AWAY
WHAT HAD
BLANK BLANK - and here they have a pun on a chariot race that the straight line is BEEN HER. You just fill in the pun.

BEN-HUR would have Ben the Bingo.

The Rogue at Night - 1026 #RogueRiddle

portagecreek
 

It has been a good day. Playing the Rogue has become fun again for me and apparently for several of the participants. Lars, One Sagen, Chris, and Diana have all obtained bingos.

Every one of the attempted Burma-Shave type riddles has been solved by at least someone:

The count is below:

# Bingos
1 3
2 1
3 3
4 2
5 1

Several guesses are also close shaves.

Rogue Riddle #1026

Please send your guesses to gypsywagon@... not the list. I have attempted to use the #Rogue Riddle rule to allow you to hit reply and have it only come to me. Recent escapes have found that we tend to make it unreliable.

These are just a bunch of jingles with blanks. My intention was to honor Stan Kegel's love of Burma-Shave jingles by creating some new ones as riddles. It turned out not to be easy but there are five here with BLANKS for puns. Just provide the puns.

As usual, first with all or first with most when I call the game wins.

Try to remember or imagine driving along and seeing a series of red and white signs on the highway - all jingles for a product and the last sign was always Burma-Shave. In this case some are about punners, some are about punning events, and one is to try and get Diana to play again.

I certainly appreciated the way Diana played by sending puns for clues. I'll do my best.

Example ( incomplete to honor the copyright) from a real set of signs.

HER CHARIOT

Example ( incomplete to honor the copyright) from a real set of signs.

HER CHARIOT
RACED 80 PER
THEY HAULED AWAY
WHAT HAD
BLANK BLANK - and here they have a pun on a chariot race that the straight line is BEEN HER. You just fill in the pun.

But he is the expert at one-hand clapping. And when he does it for himself, he can certainly pat himself on the back for success single-handedly. He will, of course, use his right hand, because the other hand is left.

Those are really good, hands-down the best I have heard, so I want to give you a hand! I don't have first-hand experience, so I wonder if a one-armed man get a job as a handy man. I'd better quit writing before this gets out of hand.

Only half of all the available punch lines can be successfully used by a one armed man. On the other hand he can single-handedly take on anything. Of course, he can't shop at a second-hand store.

Once a knight is enough.

A prominent Jewish businessman in London performs so many noble charitable works that it come to the notice of the Queen. The Queen then decides to bestow the honor of knighthood upon him and he is called to Buckingham Palace for the ceremony. Before he is ushered into the presence of the Queen, a courtier explains the ceremony to him and instructs him on the ritual words he must say when the Queen places her sword on his shoulder.

He rehearses the words over and over, but when the Queen actually places her sword on his shoulder his mind goes completely blank. It happens to be Passover, and so the only words that come into his mind are: "Ma nishtana ha'layla haze mikol haleylot". When the Queen hears him say that, she responds, "Why is this knight different from all other knights?"
