ROGUE RIDDLE #1008 - Launched on January 26, 2020 at 10:10am central

$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$
Submit all guesses, gasps, groans and gripes directly to <gary@...>
$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$

Below you will find a series of 4 limerick verses. Each features one BLANK which represents a single missing word. In most cases this word will be a pun. Three of these 4 words end in “S.” Although I have not noted it, in two cases that “S” will be the possessive “apostrophe S.”

The 5th limerick verse is the “real riddle question” which features 4 BLANK spaces. To fill those blanks, you will need to rearrange the 4 previous BLANK words which logically complete the sentence in that final line.

First player who submits the correct words arranged in the proper order wins the honor of hosting next week’s Rogue Riddle.

1.
Rene Descartes sunbathed a lot
Some lotion, he went out and bought
“Sun could turn me red,”
The philosopher said,
“I BLANK, so therefore I am not”

2.
Victoria’s Secret is out
But sex is not what it’s about
Their business is flagging
Their bottom line’s sagging
And pink BLANK are coming no doubt

3.
Yankee Gehrig long since paid his dues
Fought disease, which for most is not news
ALS struck him out
And there was little doubt
There were none who could then fill BLANK shoes

4.
Our punning contest is renown
Bringing great groans and laughter. No frown
Shows on anyone’s face
At O.Henry’s old place
While our champion BLANK going down

#### The REAL RIDDLE question ####

5.
In the “big war” this slogan we knew
Kept some secrets safe. Was this true?
When you’re in the same boat
This could keep yours afloat
BLANK BLANK still BLANK BLANK. Yes they do!

$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$&$
Submit all guesses, gasps, groans and gripes directly to <gary@...>
