Rogue Riddle #1102

Yet Another Potpourri

 

    There is something for everyone this week.

 

    This week’s Rogue Riddle consists of twenty riddles, each of which has two answers, although some might simply be slight rearrangements rather than full replacements.  There is no particular theme this week, nor is there any particular form, as the title suggests.

 

    Sample riddle:

 

Q:  An involved punster?

A:  HANSON / HANDS ON

 

    In addition, there are six riddles with two separate definitions (1, 4, 7, 10, 13, and 16) The two answers are extremely close.  Determining the difference between the two answers, which is the same in each case, is the subject of the bonus question at the end.

 

    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 #1103 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.

   
    The Rogue 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. EDT on Wednesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner and will host Rogue Riddle #1102 next week.
 
    There is a theme, which should become obvious as one begins to solve the riddles.
 
    Now, on to the riddles.
