One or two? This same list seem to have been in circulation forever! Admittedly great and worthy stuff but It keeps getting re-posted so often as “this years winners,” it does make me wonder if the Washington Post is even still running such a contest.

As our podcast is currently on a brief hiatus, we have just this week re-released this episode, so I thought I’d probably go ahead and plug it once again. 

And because she was always so good about rallying the troops in celebration of others, when her birthday rolls around again on October 11, I propose we (PUNY) mark that occasion with a flurry and flush of archival materials in her memory.

Rogue Riddle 1037 - Winner Declared and Answers Revealed

Lars Hanson
 

All,

  

   Gary Hallock came in with a winning worksheet just as I sent out the previous status report.  That brought us to six players this week.  Gary had 17 clean kills, and so gets to host Rogue Riddle #1038 next week.   

 

    In the end, no riddles went unanswered.  Neither of the two riddles I had thought would be “4.0 busters” went unanswered, and one, #14, fell almost immediately.

 

    Here are the riddle statistics for this week’s Rogue Riddle:

 

5 correct -   2:   1, 18

4 correct -   2:   7, 14

3 correct -   4:   2, 4, 15, 17

2 correct -   3:   6, 10, 11

1 correct -   9:   3, 5, 8, 9, 12, 13, 16, 19, 20

0 correct – 0

No guesses -  0


     Reveal:  Below are the answers to this week’s Rogue Riddle set.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 
Rogue Riddle #1037
Talkin’ ‘Bout the Animals

 
 They share the planet with us, so let's talk about the animals.
 
 
    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.
 
    One “BLANK” is used 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.”
 
   Examples:
 

Q:  It sounds like this bird likes to brag a lot.  Quite naturally, a BLANK will BLANK a lot.

A:  CROW / CROW

 

Q:  This animal sounds like a mild human ailment.

A:  COLT / COLD

 
    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.

Rogue Riddle 1037 - Clue Set #3 -- #RogueRiddle

Lars Hanson
 

All,

  

   There are now five players this week.
 
     Herewith the third clue set.

 

Hint:  As the introduction indicates, all of this week’s riddles deal with animal names.  Sometimes it may be easiest to begin the name of an animal (land animal or bird if specified in the set-up).  Other times it may help to begin with the word described in the set-up.
 

Clue Set #1:  The letter counts for the first ten riddles are provided below.

 

Clue Set #2:  The letter counts for the remaining ten riddles are provided below.

 

Clue Set #3:  Clues for the seven unsolved riddles are provided below.

    Now, on to the riddles.
 
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 
 
1.  What animal sounds modern?
      (3 / 3)
 
2.  This animal sounds like it likes to talk.
       (3 / 3)
 
3.    This bird sounds as though it is ready to go right from the outset, no preparation required.
        (6 / 7)

         It indeed would be nice if this bird did come prepared – much less work at the holidays.
 
4.  An animal with a raspy voice?
     (5 / 6)
 
5.  Perhaps this animal lives in a college student building?
      (8 / 4, 5)

      The animal is mentioned in Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit.”  Both answers refer to animals.
 
6.  This animal loves to play by the riverbank, of course.  That’s because a BLANK BLANK have fun.
      (5 / 6)
 
7.  This canine appears in rainstorms.
      (6 / 6)
 
8.  This animal bears watching, as it caters to baser instincts.  Yes, the BLANK has been known to BLANK.
      (5 / 6)

      Moralist tend to take a black-and-white view of such seedy characters.
 
9.  This animal is much beloved.  Many find a BLANK quite BLANK.
      (4 / 4)
 
10.  This bird has its own desk in a hotel lobby.
        (7 / 5-2, or 5, 2, or 7)  (Different spellings, but the same answer.)
 
11.  The lazy BLANK can be found BLANK in the veldt.
        (4 / 4’)
 
12.  As for the canine mentioned earlier, you know it was brought out by the BLANK, right?
        (8 / 4, 4)

        One can take a lap through the north to find this animal, I’ve heard.
 
13.  Is it a BLANK who deputizes sheriffs for a posse?
       (6 / 6)

       What is the visible indication that someone has been deputized (even if Clint Eastwood claimed no such indicia were needed).
 
14.  Perhaps this lizard is an appropriate decoration for a traditional Japanese ceramic stove.
      (6, 6 / 6, 6)
 
15.  The BLANK is one of the largest cervine species.  There are many of its BLANK around.
       (3 / 3)
 
16.  This bird sounds as though it has done time.  The BLANK sounds as though it has spent BLANK behind bars.
       (7 / 1, 7)

        Reportedly this large bird is terrible at hiding.
 
17.  This bird seems to be something preachers are often calling for, when they say, “... and now let BLANK.”
        (6 / 2, 4)
 
18.  A farm youngster has escaped!  Yes, the BLANK took it on the BLANK! 
        (4 / 3)
 
19.  Do the mythical sirens have one of these?  There’s been many a tale of the sirens’ BLANK.
        (5 / 4)
 
20.  Down Under, the BLANK sounds like something someone in the Ozarks might say after hearing about something unusual.
         (7 / 4, 1’2, 2)

          This one is a marsupial.

Rogue Riddle 1037 - Status -- #RogueRiddle

Lars Hanson
 

All,

 

    So far, just one player, Chris, who slew 13 of this week’s Rogue in one fell swoop just three hours after the riddles were posted.  Well done, Chris!

 

    One person asked for examples, which I had not thought necessary as these are all straight puns this week.   Nevertheless, I am including two examples in the write-up.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

Rogue Riddle #1037

Talkin’ ‘Bout the Animals

 

    They share the planet with us, so let's talk about the animals.

 

    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.

 

    One “BLANK” is used 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.”

 

   Examples:

 

Q:  It sounds like this bird likes to brag a lot.  Quite naturally, a BLANK will BLANK a lot.

A:  CROW / CROW

 

Q:  This animal sounds like a mild human ailment.

A:  COLT / COLD

=======================================================


A little change of pace...no puns today, sorry...but hopefully just as challenging & fun! (Writing the instructions was tougher than the riddles!)

Below, you'll see 18 descriptions/clues to what I'll call "compound words" (even though not truly compound but close enough). Each compound word will contain one of these 3 prefixes or suffixes ("ment","mint" or "mant") except #18 where "ment", "mint" or "mant" is actually in the middle of the word.
The 18 descriptions show 2 clues, the 1st being the meaning of just the part of the word by itself without the prefix or suffix...the 2nd clue is the meaning of the entire compound word when the prefix or suffix is added.

Examples:  
ex.#1) small fruit/fantastic notion = (fig-ment)  figment
ex.#2) private room/English legislature = (parlor) parliament
ex.#3) infused leaf liquid extract /cooling sensation flavor = (tea-mint) minty

Your job...try to guess as many of the 18 compound words based on the 2 clues and knowing that each & every compound word contains either "mint,ment or mant" either at the beginning or end of the entire word (except #18).       send guesses and worksheet to:  doug10101@... 

1 simple/access

2 vision/stonelike

3 needle fish/outfit

4 1st,2nd,3rd,home/bunker

5 over eater/skin colorer

6 sharp weapon/sharp flavor

7 beer/sickness

8 vessel/cargo

9 electrical power unit/undesirable animal

10 gift or delicacy/cure

11 separated/flat

12 portal/inactive or asleep

13 ripped/suffer

14 Tx, Ca or Fl/proclamation

15 Gore,Green,Einstein/mind related

16 tonal scale note/grief

17 imply/teacher

18 not good (prefix)/not off(suffix)/ racquet game (entire word)

Look for an early launch tomorrow, Saturday around 11:00 a.m.  

Be pre-paired for something completely different...no pun attended

Hopefully, we'll have a good turnout,not a bad turnover, so turn-in on time but turnabout is fair play [in case you don't like it]

ROGUE RIDDLE #1035 (Bingo & reveal)

gary hallock
 

It kind of surprised me that so many players were willing to stay up late to receive and work on this riddle. Three of the players submitted their solutions within the first hour and another few in the wee small hours of Monday morning.

First out of the gate with a clean sweep was Erika Ettin, followed quickly by Lars Hanson and Doug Spector. Bringing up the rear were Chris Gross, Adam Engel, Jon Gearhart and Bill Crider. Nearly everyone knocking this one out of the park.

Trigger happy Erika was the clear victor here but she seems as eager as I am to see what Doug has up his sleeve, so watch for his version of Rogue Riddle #1036 to appear in your mailbox some day (or night) next weekend.

As usual, I have filled in the BLANKs in the verses below. Thank you all for playing

Below you will find a series of 5 limerick verses, the first 4 of these contain one or more BLANK spaces to fill with a single common word. Identify, rearrange (and possibly pun) each of these missing words to assemble a 6 word phrase that will makes some phonetic sense in completing the missing words (BLANKS) in the final line of the 5th verse, a.k.a. the “real” question. (Target in this case will be a slight variation on an otherwise readily recognizable phrase.)

First guesser who provides me with all the correct words in the proper order wins the honor/responsibility of hosting/posting RR# 1036 next weekend.

Lars, I am in several other group.io list and moderate others, so I put them all mvandriesen@... to save confusion for myself, aging brain and all. EmojiEmojiEmoji  I've been so busy, and then our internet was gone for half a day so I am more behind than usual.

I 'think' I finished the first 3 of Gary's limericks and after that became befuddled.  Not having much time, I set it aside for a while.
