Well, it has been 12 hours and zero guesses - I guess you are stumped with this game. So to get you in the game I will provide some give away clues I will call "game changers".

There are 10 little riddles and one limerick. All have BLANKS for you to fill with puns to gather bingos. First person to get them all or first with the most by 11:00 PM Wednesday gets to host 1101 ( I can hardly wait 'til 10 more from that. You could be the one!
