Doug,

    My apologies for not having responded to your earlier note to me.  I am in Europe and traveling.

    Agree with Lee that quite likely the problem you are experiencing stems from your own e-mail system, which makes it difficult (impossible, really) to troubleshoot from without.

    Recommend checking your spam folder, as Lee suggested, and also check to ensure you have no filter settings which could affect either your receipt of messages or your seeing them.

    Modern spam algorithms have become particularly pesky, as the criteria for ascertaining whether or not something is spam do not always produce desired results.

    Good luck with it all!

    Aloha,

        Lars

Even if you’re not afraid of bugs, arachnid’s possible you could still be creeped out by some in spider yourself.

Did you hear about the gal who got a bad dye job on her hair and couldn’t sleep at night? Her bangs were just too loud. 

If you want to avoid getting scurvy, eat more citrus! Well duh! Hey, it’s not rickets science.

Driving through west Texas this past week, I passed Sweetwater. Must have been all that iced tea I’d been drinking!

This week Kirk and Lars both made clean sweeps, getting all the answers.
Kirk was first, and has agreed to host next weekend.

Gary, Aaron, James, Joseph, and Doug made good showings. 
I hope you all enjoyed playing. It seems shorter easier games are better for summer play!

The Reveal:

1.       I wanted to take a Scandinavian cruise, but I could not blank it.
Wjat  is a prominent Scandinavian landfjorm? FJIORD

2.       On our cruise, to take a shore excursion on the small Pacific island, we had to pay blank.
It was a little round island made of coral, not large at all. ATOLL

3.       I wonder if my wife would like to take a cruise to the frozen NorthWest? I think blank. 

I should never just State what I want to do, I always present it to her in the form of a question. ALASKA

4.       To tour Europe, we can’t decide between a river cruise or pedaling. That is to say, the choice is either blank or blank. (not a pun, just sort of wordplay).  
I think the river cruise will be more to my liking. But the other thing would at least be easier than hiking. VIKING or BIKING

5.       I told my friend I did a lot of gambling on my Caribbean island vacation, so he asked ‘Blank a lot of money?’

He said 'Yes, but I wish I made Samoa."  JAMAICA

Aaron, Kirk, and James have all gotten several bingos. Climb aboard and join the Pun Ship. Just 5 easy puns, who else would like to play? 



With only two participants last week, I can only guess that lots of folks are on vacation. So this week the riddles are all about vacations. 
Or maybe people saw 20 questions and were scared away. So this week is just 5 easy questions. 

As usual, send guesses to bill.crider at gmail.com. Don't reply all.

Not sure I would be willing to buy beef online. It’s a real meat market out there and often just a sausage fest. Are you willing to butcher self at brisket this time?

We only had two players this week, and alas, neither could host. 
Kirk got 24 of 25, and Cyn got 5. 

Since no one could claim, I will post an easy Rogue shortly. 
BillCrider

Disclaimer: Punning on the Democratic candidates names does not in any way indicate my political position for or against any of these candidates. It is not intended to incite any political discussion at all. It is my fervent hope that NO political discussion results from this Rogue Riddle. It is only about puns on the names of the candidates. My brain puns on the names of everyone mentioned on Television, Radio, Movies, Internet and all other media. I can’t help it.

If any of these puns are considered by anyone to be insulting, complimentary, inflammatory, laudatory, or to attribute anything whatsoever – that is entirely in the mind of the reader and not intended by me. My only intent was to make a pun. In fact – I didn’t intend to. It just happened in my brain by default like it always does. It’s a mental affliction, not a political stance.

 

These should be easy. Too easy. Everyone should be able to Google the list (you probably know at least 5 or 10 of the names already). Just make a pun on the name, a terribly obvious juvenile pun. Don’t overthink it.

 

Example: The White House has gone to the dogs, specifically Lady and the Tramp.

 

1.    Can an Indiana mayor become president? I don’t know. You blank blank blank.

Be the judge  / Pete Buttigieg 

2.    The people of New York want to know – what blank blank is going on?

3.    Colorado has a new farm-themed amusement park. The roller coaster is known as the blank blank.
chicken looper / John Hickenlooper

4.    She originally sought an endorsement from Smuckers, but when they proved too conservative she got an endorsement from a different blank blank.
jelly brand / Kirsten Gillibrand 

5.    Just before his first appearance he got a sore throat. He could neither speak nor blank blank.
swallow well / Eric Swalwell

6.    By the time he finished his speech on the hot Fourth of July, all the ice cream was blank.
molten / Seth Moulton

7.    The scary parts of a Stephen King movie always make my blank blank.
hair rise / Kamala Harris

8.    Sadly, some candidates feel they must blank before the large donors
grovel / Mike Gravel

9.    Listening to her list of new government programs, I think it must be longer than blank blank Peace.
War and / Elizabeth Warren

10.  With his crazy ideas, it is only a matter of time before his opponents refer to him as blank blank.
de loony / John Delaney

11.  “I don’t think you will be president” his opponent said, “but you might be the blank blank.”
Lying King / Tim Ryan

12. “You got the nomination!” his campaign manager exclaimed! “No, not really. I am just blank with you”
messing / Wayne Messam 

13.  After his speech, there was no food left over for him. It had already blank blank.
been et. / Michael Bennet 

14.  The country club had such an extensive dining facility, they even had to hire their own blank blank to prepare enough meat for their guests.
club butcher / Amy Klobuchar

15.  What God has joined together, let no man tear a blank.
sunder / Bernie Sanders

16. What’s that noise in the henhouse? I don’t know – I will go blank blank.

17. I can’t think of what to type. I seem to have writer’s blank.

22. The jury finds you guilty of stealing a horse in Texas. Therefore we sentence you to blank.

23. Running for president for the third time? That proves he is always blank off more than he can chew.

24. I leave my elder son my rangeland and cattle, but I blank blank blank my homestead and horses.

A often question asked of Sea World — “Did it serve its porpoise?” (One trusts not for dinner!)  The questioners usually receive a flipper response.

    I heard that billboard required a loan to finance — it certainly was ad hock.

Did it serve its purpose? Was it disfunctional?
I told my doctor that I injured my leg while watching an animated feature film. He asked, "was it dis knee?"
