Rogue Riddle #1094
Instrumental in Recovery
 
    This week’s Rogue Riddle consists of ten riddles, each of which has two answers.  There is a particular theme this week, and twigging to it will help guide guesses.
 
    Sample riddle:
 
Q:  An involved punster?
A:  HANSON / HANDS ON
 
    The riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.  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 and will host Rogue Riddle #1095 next week.
 
    As with previous riddle sets, the word BLANK can replace more than one word.  In other words, seeing the word BLANK does not indicate how many words should replace the word BLANK.  Further, the article preceding the word “blank” will always be “a,” never “an,” regardless of he punned word.
     
    Now, on to the riddles.
