Adam,

    Not much can be done now — just take it as a lesson learned.  But don’t take it any less on board.

    As Doug notes, everyone here — and that means everyone! — has done this at one time or another.

    For riddle hosts — at the end of the subject line, add “#RogueRiddle” (without the quotation marks, of course!) to take advantage of a feature the Administrangler has set up.  Including this simple phrase at the end of the subject line means any reply goes back just to the message originator and not to the group as a whole.

    Obviously, though, no other hashtag (#) should appear in the subject line.

    Aloha,

        Lars

The waltz of this house are starting to buckle and warp. That’s because the roof puts too much BLANK on them.

Strapped into my cross-country snow gear I decided to circumnavigate the snowy top of an extinct volcano. As usual my asthma starting acting up and I began hacking and wheezing. That right, whenever I BLANK-BLANK.

13.
Because I have BLANK memory, a baker’s dozen of these riddles is the most I can compose.

Rogue Riddle 1042: Checkin’ Satays Explain Your Continental Self #RogueRiddle

gregg s
 



So nothing substantive has changed standings wise and Gary H. is the winner of Rogue Riddle 1042. I’m not sure what his experience and skill level might be with pun related activities but, regardless, my understanding is that he will get the honor of crafting the next Riddle.

Here are the answers to my thing:

1. More than 100 degrees.
BERLIN. Since it is European, I thought it was just good manners to use the centrigrade system. It’s wall good, man.

2. Scooby Do is my favorite. Flintstones is a good one too.
KHARTOUM. Just about everybody got this one right off. Sudanly I felt like a cel out.

3. Step one, perhaps, if you want to make a sex tape.
MONTEVIDEO. Many people said BANGKOK, which according to the STMTA (Sex Tape Makers Trade Association) is, offically, step five. (And, depending on the type of tape you’re making, only presented as optional.) And to the dude who said BAGDAD, well, 1. Ew. 2. That’s not what people usually mean when they think of DILFs. 3. Perhaps Bob Saget is interested.

4. A particular, yet quite common, type of battery.
TRIPOLI. With kids, you go through them by the case. AA too. One day, I will be Libyarated.

5. What Captain Kirk’s phaser might give you.
AUSTIN. Some of you hail from this stunning city, no? Then how come this one seemed allusive?

6. What you might ask if you wonder whether the Yankee’s HOF catcher of legend and pitcher of malapropisms might be able to.
CANBERRA. Remember, it ain’t over til it’s over. And, no, not at all the same dude as Yogi Bear.

7. If this most remote landmass was to put in an outlet of the largest fast-food franchise, this might be a natural location.
MCMURDO. My attempt to ensure that Antarctica did represent, and the urban pickings were slim indeed: stations pretty much equal cities in this frigid, barely inhabited locale. This is one of the continent’s largest, perhaps a good place for a McGriddle. Or a McSpaceHeater. Supersize it for sure.

8. Two thirds of the common abbreviation for sadomasochism, perhaps.
ESSEN. As in ESSENM. Willkommen! And bienvenue! Welcome!

9. What the Six Million Dollar man actor might say to his mother if she got his name wrong
LIMA. Steve Austin is just the character I played, Ma. No, they didn’t actually PAY me six million dollars, Ma. Yes, I’m a schmuck for losing Farrah, Ma. If you got this one, feel free to enjoy a sense of Majors satisfaction.

10. The kind of rock Yes or ELP is said to play.
PRAGUE. No, friend, “BORING OLD GUY STUFF” is not a city. Although it is, in fact, a synonym for prog rock.

11. What you do to someone when a puzzle question doesn’t track quite right
HANOI. Again, “PISS THEM OFF” –not a city. A state, of mind, perhaps. People seemed to have the most trouble with this one. Pretty hannoying. And, I guess, pretty ironic.

12. What Kelly Bundy might say about her brother.
BUDAPEST. Whatever happened to Bud Bundy? It’s great to see Christina Applegate again, a seriously great actress and brave soul. Note I didn’t say Seoul. I could have, but I didn’t.

13. What you can do if the car isn’t rising fast enough.
JAKARTA. This clue could have gone in quite a different direction. You’re welcome.

‘Night all. It was a pleasure to serve.


Rogue Riddle 1042: Checkin’ Satays Currants Tats and Lass Clues #RogueRiddle

gregg s
 

Standings of all participants are as follows:

Gary H 11
Adam EE 10
Lars H 8
James E 5
Gary R 4
Joseph H 1

Gary and Lars might have one more each but, as a new guy, I need to get some process clarifications; it doesn’t change the order however, nor the fact that no one has yet made a clean sweep.

No one has gotten them all, which some might find annoying. And annoying someone is the last thing I would want to do, or one of the last few things anyway. Also note that McJagger, whose favorite novel is reportedly Sense and Sensibility, has played on all continents but one.

The paragraph above may be gibberishy nonsense or may contain valuable clues. Or both. Or neither. You decide. But, if you decide anything other than that it contains valuable clues, you’d be wrong.

Speaking of wrong, also note that all I have gotten thus far are pungent responses. I was telling someone the other day that some of the best punsters were non-pungents. It is unlikely that this position is incorrect, but it would be helpful to have some additional evidence.  Any takers? Yes, I’m looking at you. And you. Twenty four hours to go. I wanna be pun-indated.


Rogue Riddle 1042: Checkin’ Satays Get A Clue! (Seriously, Get It Right Here) #RogueRiddle

48 hours left with nobody yet clearing the board and plenty of bragging rights to be had. In fact no one has gotten #11—a nice little faux homophone in line with the best of the rest. #7 is a bit more obtuse—like everything else, perhaps, in Antarctica, a land in which “cities” are more like fortress stations. Speaking of which, I’ve added to each a letter(s) denoting what continent the target city lies upon, as well as a numeral denoting the number of letters therein.



1. More than 100 degrees.
6 E

2. Scooby Do is my favorite. Flintstones is a good one too.
8 Af

3. Step one, perhaps, if you want to make a sex tape.
10 S

4. A particular, yet quite common, type of battery.
7 Af

5. What Captain Kirk’s phaser might give you.
6 N

6. What you might ask if you wonder whether the Yankee’s HOF catcher of legend and pitcher of malapropisms might be able to.
8 Au

7. If this most remote landmass was to put in an outlet of the largest fast-food franchise, this might be a natural location.
7 An

8. Two thirds of the common abbreviation for sadomasochism, perhaps.
5 E

9. What the Six Million Dollar man actor might say to his mother if she got his name wrong
4 S

10. The kind of rock Yes or ELP is said to play.
6 E

11. What you do to someone when a puzzle question doesn’t track quite right
5 As

12. What Kelly Bundy might say about her brother.
8 E

13. What you can do if the car isn’t rising fast enough.
7 As

Lee, We certainly appreciate you being willing to patella us details of your pedal infirmities. (Or perhaps it was a leg I meant!) Some people may think you’re only ankling for attention but I think there’s surely no shin in sharing with close friends. My limps are sealed.

I should be out of here sometime this week, so things should improve somewhat in a few days. Thanks for your patience while I recuperate.

Geegg,

11ish hours in and some notes/insights as a first timer:

-What you want to know most: Out of five respondents thus far, the leaders are Adam E.E. 9, Gary H. 7. Plenty, PLENTY of room left for a true urban sprawl.
-The creativity in presenting an “alternative” pun answer is inspiring. And amusing. And, in at least one case, disturbing.
-I even made a spreadsheet to track all this stuff. Is that what you’re supposed to do?
-ALL got 2 and 6.
-I never sausage a lack of estrogen power. Is it always this way?
-NONE got 5, an, oh, unexpectantly por tern out on that one.
-Keep ‘em coming.
-No one got 11 either. Still, never shall I shun countrymen in the pursuit of puns.
-Keep ‘em coming.
-Seriously put down that Sunday NYT puzzle and do this. It’s 98% more full of city names. Shortz weather is over anyway.

Sorry to hear you're laid up. Sending good wishes that your body makes a quick recovery, and hoping the pain will start to ease soon so you can take less medication.

Did you get the surgery down in Austin? I hear that's the city where ACLs are born.
