Rogue Riddle 1042: Checkin’ Satays Status Report and a couple of hints #RogueRiddle

gregg s
 

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.

Hi Lee, you don’t know me, but regardless, best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Gary was able to “approve" me and get my post out of new guy purgatory/probation so I saw my Riddle intro actually post by early evening. My posts seem to post in real time now.

Apologies all for redundancies and tests and so on.

Hey Lee, as your doctors may have told you, taking a shot at the Rogue Riddle is often indicated in these situations.

Please accept my apologies if I'm a bit slow in getting to any administrative situations. I'm currently in a "skilled" nursing center (a.k.a. rehab hospital) after having a total knee replacement done on my left knee. I've made a lot of progress, but the amount of pain medicine I'm on knocks me out occasionally. As a result, I don't immediately see all new messages.

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.

Rogue Riddle 1042: Checkin’ Satays #RogueRiddle

Checkin' Satays

Hi, I’m new in town. I spent way too much time working on Rogue Riddle 1041, neglecting my work, my family and basic standards of hygiene, and, as a result, I evidently identified the most correct answers. To my surprise, the first place prize was getting to create the next Riddle. What’s the second place prize, getting to create the next two Riddles? Seriously, ya’ll couldn’t have sprung for a $5 Starbucks giftcard? A bag of scrumptious fruit-flavored PASTILLEs even?

Joking aside, I’m actually delighted that Europin’ me in to do this, and although I can’t guarantee that African good time will be had by all, or by anybody actually, Asia sure you that I worked with incontinent enthusiasm and did my best to ensure that you enjoy many, many minutes of entertaining frustration.

To keep everything on a level playing field, I’ve already received a question and I will answer it publicly for the edification of all. A contestant wrote: “So. Americans are not allowed to do this?” My answer: “No. Americans are certainly welcome, as are participants from every country.” Invite everybody and their uncle—indeed, if your uncle’s clever, your Aunt artica-ulate, invite them aboard. Cousins too.

As I noted, this is my first time, so I’m aware Austrailing some of you in experience by multiple hundreds of Riddles. But look, I hope you’ll be urbane and not call the puzzle polis on any inadvertent faux pas or at phalts, pun gals and guys, and give me a chance to perform this civic duty.

So here goes. These are world cities. Big ones, mostly. Cities on all seven continents are represented, although cities can be a relative term, and equal time has not at all been given, with my having missed out on travel to one particular continent this summer and being therefore in a state of pine.

The answer is the correctly spelled name of the city, nothing more; if you supply it, I will assume that you have identified and been forced to endure the pun and I see no reason for you to suffer further. Also note that in each case the sounds of the city are approximate, and, as best as a monoglot can so ensure, match up reasonably well with the sounds of the clue. Of course, it will not always be 100% perfect, so relax, don’t be a Greenwich meany ti-me, or to anyone. It’s no bigeez, eh?

Now, sharpen your metaphorical pencils and your literal wits, take a big a-pull on a beverage of your choice, and sit, ease into this one...

1. More than 100 degrees.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

12. What Kelly Bundy might say about her brother.

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


Answers to reply presumably, or direct to gregg17@.... Answers accepted (and excepted) until 11:59 pm ET Tuesday 9/29/20; results announced shortly thereafter.

Q:  Though I may sound like something for an axle, actually I am a country.  What am I?

A:  GREECE / GREASE

  
    As always, effort has gone into the setup wording to provide necessary clues.
 
    The riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EDT 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. EDT on Wednesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner.

    A new player has swept in with eleven (11) clean kills, sweeping Jim (5 kills) and Chris (3 kills) out of the lead.  Who else is out there?.

 

    Herewith is the second set of clues.

 

Clue Set #1:  Below are the letter counts for the first ten riddles.

 

Clue Set #2:  Below are the letter counts for the last ten riddles.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 
Rogue Riddle #1041
And Now for Something Different . . .

 
 Remember the riddles told to children?  This week’s riddles hark back to those days in form.

 
    As usual, this week’s Rogue Riddle consists of twenty riddles.  Each riddle has two answers which sound similar.  Both answers are required for full credit.  Most of these are very easy one-word answers, but there are one or two “4.0 busters” in the mix.
  
   Example:
 

Q:  Though I may sound like something for an axle, actually I am a country.  What am I?

A:  GREECE / GREASE

  
    As always, effort has gone into the setup wording to provide necessary clues.
 
    The riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EDT 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. EDT on Wednesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner.
 
    Now, on to the riddles.

All,

    This week's Rogue Riddle will be launched within the hour.

Rogue Riddle #1040 - (Bingo & Reveal)

gary hallock
 

Looks like this riddle set is about played out so I’m making the call now. Only 4 players piled onto this one, Jim Ertner, Chris Gross, Gregg Siegel and Lars Hanson. Lars was the first (and only) player to knock out the entire list, so he has not only been exposed to multiple photos of my new grand daughter, but is also saddle with the dubious honor of hosting and posting #1041 next weekend. 

My expected answers have been shuffled into the riddle set below.
Thank you all for playing and/or paying attention.

Rogue Riddle #1040 - Don’t mesh with taxes - Posted Sept 13, 2020 @ 3:30pm central

$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$

As I spent most of energy Saturday celebrating the arrival on earth of our awesome second granddaughter, you may think it odd that I would even have the energy to post a riddle at all. On this weekend I remain somewhat weakened, yet here goes nothing…well, maybe something. 

Two themes appear to be at odds on this riddle set. One has to do with the easily recognized digits of this riddle number and what it implies. The other may give you insight into what weighs most heavily on my mind at the moment. (7lbs 12oz to be precise) If you’re not as into punning on progeny as I, you may still enjoy be able to relate to the alternate theme, as it is not too taxing.

Below you will find 10 fairly simple fill-in-the-blank style riddles, each containing one or more BLANK spaces into which you are expected to insert words. In some cases there are multiple blanks which indicate the number of words required to fill the space. In one case the desired word will be plural. This is indicated by the lower case “s.” 

First player to knock out most or all wins a suitable-for-framing digital photo of my beautiful new grand daughter, Fern Saurus Nemanich Hallock. (Just kidding! Anyone who privately shows even the slightest interest or enthusiasm will be getting more than one photo.) 

$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$)$

1. 
The IRS agent told me my case was going "under review." I asked her, “Exactly what do you mean by that?” Unfortunately that's BLANK she would tell me. 
#### AUDIT

2.
When filling out IRS forms, I accidentally listed too many dependents. This was quite frustrating. Now, in revising my paperwork, I’m pulling out my BLANKs. 
#### HEIRS

3.
If the annual (Punster of the Year) honoree at the O.Henry Pun-Off pre-show dinner were to travel to Austin by Amtrak, what might you call that person's journey? BLANK BLANK
#### P.O.T.Y. TRAINING

4.
If Saddam Hussein had really wanted to avoid capture, he should have prepared himself BLANK BLANK.
#### ATTACK SHELTER

5.
Pretty sure my baby is dry but I can’t seem to get her to go to sleep. Maybe I’ll sing her that soothing song, “Don’t worry…be BLANK.”
#### NAPPIE

6.
Filling out tax forms is much like diapering a baby. One of the most important things is the BLANK BLANK.
#### BOTTOM LINE 

7.
The pregnant couple went to the emergency room long after 12pm for the urgent birth of their baby. The hospital charged them extra for BLANK BLANK.
#### OVERNIGHT DELIVERY

8.
How might a tax preparer refer to the lower leg areas of Huey, Dewey & Louie’s Uncle? 
#### D. DUCK SHINS

9.
When the expectant mother had complications with her delivery, the attending physician called for spinal anesthesia. Unfortunately there were no qualified personnel on duty in the hospital. The doctor was forced to call in a tax specialist from Human Resources to perform an BLANK BLANK instead.
#### H&R BLOCK

10.
The comical villain from the Austin Powers film series famously created a very small clone of himself. Unknown (and unshown) in the series was an earlier cloned version of Dr. Evil who never reached his full gestation. Dr. Evil jokingly referred to this poor fellow as “BLANK.”

Here's the COVID-19 version of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game".  Gary Hallock was the only participant and deserved to win after all of his efforts to find puns where none existed and then came up with the correct answers.   In my attempt to make it easier, it turned out not to be the case.  Carry on with Rogue Riddle 1040, Gary, with my apologies!

 

The Old Ball Game (in the year of COVID - 19, sung with vigor, please.

 

Stay away from the ball game!

 

Don’t go out in a crowd!

 

You’ll save so much on your Cracker Jack.

 

It’s unlikely you’ll ever go back.

 

Keep six feet from your neighbors.

 

Without your mask it’s a shame:

 

For it’s one! — two! — the virus hits you! 

 

At the old ball game!

Here's the COVID-19 version of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game".  Gary Hallock was the only participant and deserved to win after all of his efforts to find puns where none existed and then came up with the correct answers.   In my attempt to make it easier, it turned out not to be the case.  Carry on with Rogue Riddle 1040, Gary, with my apologies!

 

The Old Ball Game (in the year of COVID - 19, sung with vigor, please.

 

Stay away from the ball game!

 

Don’t go out in a crowd!

 

You’ll save so much on your Cracker Jack.

 

It’s unlikely you’ll ever go back.
