Date   
ROGUE REDEAUX #1023 (bingo and reveal)

gary hallock
 

Oops! Here it is Friday midnight and I just now realized that I’d failed to announce the BINGO/REVEAL on #1023. Of course since Lars offered his essentially correct public guess, the cat in the bag has already crossed that bridge with the barn door open, or some other metaphorical nonsense. 

Several folks were quick at play on this one other than Lars. If memory serves, they were Bill Crider, Gary Reeves, Erika Ettin, Aaron Fasel and Marilyn VanDriesen. Most players figured out my target title even if they were imperfect in filling all the blanks. 

Bill Crider claimed the kill and may host/post #1024 sometime this weekend.  Answers filled in below

Thank you for playing,

Gary Hallock

Below you will find a collection of 6 limerick verses, each of which features a single BLANK space for you to complete.  In this particular case, each BLANK represents a single word required to finish the verse. Correctly answer and reassemble all 6 required words in a particular sequence whereby they can provide the answer to the “REAL RIDDLE QUESTION” posed in the 7th verse. (Proper arrangement of the six words will be a phonetic approximation of the “TARGET TITLE” upon which I have built this game, so you need not even provide me with that title unless you feel compelled to do so. 

First player to provide me (privately) with a properly completed worksheet wins my undying admiration and potentially claims the vastly over-rated honor of posting/hosting RR #1024 some day next weekend.

Once needed an enemy gone
Took him out for golf

Accomplished a clean hole in JUAN

Knocked out when the "canned spinach FLU”

Several people on these lists have logged in to express their sorrow at the passing of Stan Kegel. I would like to take this a step further and remind everyone that the “virtual funeral” is already less than one hour away. Anyone planning to attend?

I have no idea how this event will go or whether or not there will be an opportunity for any of us to make statements or interact with others. Still, it might be nice if some of us were able to make a showing.

Meanwhile, I will share a little limerick verse I composed yesterday after hearing the news. Please feel free to pile on.

His laughter was always good medicine
His quips we ingested

In a reply mail, Richard shared me the text of his verse as well. - Gary

When punmeister Stan eats at bagel,

He many a pun will finagle.

          And when he drinks ten beers,

          Puns spew out of his ears,

Because nothing stirs Stan like keg'll.

 

Best Thoughts,

Rich Lederer

Re: [Limericks-n-Haiku] Kegel Exercises

Knowing that Richard Lederer probably does not monitor either of these lists, I also sent him a copy of my verse. Much to my surprise, he read it aloud at the services 15 minutes later.

The ceremony is over now, but there will be a “Shiva” later this evening on Zoom. If this is the place where folks gather to cry and share, it might be worth looking into. Information on linking to that should be on the funeral home website and/or by listening to the tail end of the archived video.

Stan’s son, Ken, has asked me to send you the invitation below to the “virtual” service for his dad on Tuesday from 9:55 a.m. to 11:25 a.m. (Please note that these are West Coast times.)

 

I realize that this PUNY e-mail vehicle is reserved for punning, so I will conclude with Ken Kegel’s comment:

 

“I hope one of the invites arrives. Please forward the link to those in the pun community for me and my siblings....after all we would want to PUNish others with our celebration and commemoration of Stan's life.”

Below you will find a collection of 6 limerick verses, each of which features a single BLANK space for you to complete.  In this particular case, each BLANK represents a single word required to finish the verse. Correctly answer and reassemble all 6 required words in a particular sequence whereby they can provide the answer to the “REAL RIDDLE QUESTION” posed in the 7th verse. (Proper arrangement of the six words will be a phonetic approximation of the “TARGET TITLE” upon which I have built this game, so you need not even provide me with that title unless you feel compelled to do so. 

First player to provide me (privately) with a properly completed worksheet wins my undying admiration and potentially claims the vastly over-rated honor of posting/hosting RR #1024 some day next weekend.

RR #1023 (One hour warning)

gary hallock
 

Having been 30 years since I didn’t have a scheduling conflict with Mother’s Day weekend, I failed to anticipate some protracted chat sessions from the wayward sons. Thus, I have been delayed in crafting/posting RR #1023.

Expect something in your mailboxes by 4pm central.

Re: Football Post (Covid) Season

portagecreek
 




The NFL has made some new rules for the return of football. Here are two

In addition to the usual penalty for "face-mask", there will also be a 20 yard fine if a player is not wearing one.

Two additional timeouts are awarded each team for the 'cleaning of hands'
Here too are some new NFL definitions:

"Nose Guard" An extra strong filter that securely covers both nostrils
"Quarterback Sneak": When in the huddle, quarterback quickly touches his face undetected by referees or cameras
"Handoff" what a player practices if he suspects another player is infected
"Return" what an infected player can do once he tests negative
"Passing" when a player receives a negative test result
"Sack" an additional outer covering that can be worn around a player's uniform for extra protection
"Safety" 2 points awarded to the team that exhibits more precautionary measures than the opposing team
"Snap" what some players do when they just can't handle all the new rules
"defense" Vitamins, herbs and other immune builders
"illegal contact" when a player breathes directly in another player's face
"down by contact" when a player purposely falls because he was coughed-on
"Quick Out" when players are removed immediately who show high temperatures
"Neutral zone" – A small area of the field that is constantly being zapped with ultraviolet rays where no virus can survive
"Man to Man" how the virus could spread during the game
" Hands to the face" – A penalty for any player touching his eyes or nose...wiping forehead allowed
"Halfback" a returning cured player who's only playing at a 50% level
"Fumble" when players on the sideline drop the slippery bar of soap
"delay of game" when a player goes over 20 seconds between each play to sanitize hands
"dead ball" after every 4th play, the football is considered dead and must be replaced by a clean one

and what do you think (based on the current hoarding) an "end sweep" represents?

Rogue Riddle 1022 -- Winners Declared and Answers Revealed

Lars Hanson
 

All,

 

    There were five players this week:  Jim Ertner, One Sagan, Gary Hallock, Gary Reeves, and Chris Gross, in order of joining the game.  Very early on, Gary Hallock swept the board, nailing all twenty riddles plus the bonus riddle in under 32 hours.  Chris Gross also swept the board, tenacious to the very last minute.  

The final standings were as follows:

 

Gary H – 100%:  Clean sweep

Chris Gross – 100%:  Clean sweep

One Sagan – 85%:  17 correct, missing only 6, 18, and 19

Gary R – 62.5%: 1, 4, 7-9, 11, 12, 15-18, 20, plus a partial on 13

Jim E –- 25%:  1, 5, 11, 13, 15, 

 

    Final riddle stats (5 players):

 

     5 correct –  4:   1, 8, 11, 15

     4 correct –  8:   4, 7, 9, 12, 13, 16, 17, 20

     3 correct –  6:   2, 3, 5, 10, 14, 18

     2 correct –  2:   6, 19

      1 correct –  0:   

 

    Each riddle was answered by at least two people, and 5 of the riddles fell to all.   Eight more riddles fell to the remaining four players after Jim’s initial foray, and all bit Jim got the bonus question as well, several of the players solving it early, well before they had solved enough of the other riddles to see the answer.  Doing so provided clues – starting letters – for the unsolved riddles as they went along.

 

    I hope that you all enjoyed this week’s Rogue Riddle.

 

    The answers to the riddles are included below.  Instead of listing them after the riddle, I have embedded the answers within each riddle.  The initial letters are listed in red after each riddle to show how the bonus riddle was solved.

Rogue Riddle #1022

Final Potpourri

 

    What’s in a name?  Many things.  To simplify things, initially one might well look for the bonus answer, particularly in this potpourri.  Something to keep in mind while attacking this week’s offering . . . .

 

    This week’s Rogue Riddle consists of twenty riddles plus a final bonus.  Each riddle has two answers which sound similar.  Both answers are required for full credit   And there are six Spoonerisms thrown in for good measure. As an example of homophones:

 

Q: She decided that pennies, too, should have knurled edges.  Thus did BLANK   become the first person to BLANK.

A:  MILLICENT / MILL A CENT

 

    One “BLANK” is uses for each answer, where needed. Note that the indicator BLANK may stand in for one or more words.  Also, note that the BLANK may be preceded by the article “a.”  This provides no indication of whether or not the word or words the BLANK replaces begins with a vowel or silent “h.”

 

    As always, effort has gone into the setup wording to provide necessary clues.

 

    The riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday.  As usual, 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 Wednesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner.

 

    Now, on to the riddles.
