Title: Thu., 7/23 Gareth Bain
Post by: magus on July 23, 2015, 08:42:23 AM
THEME:   phrases with words that sound like a long A and spelled AY can change meaning, but not sound, by changing AY to EY
Otoman ruler's pier?   DOCK OF THE BEY   
Optimistic Spanish ruler?   REY OF HOPE   
Fixes, as a heel, perhaps   DARNS [any part of the sock is better to darn the the heel since the stitches will likely be felt --- as poor kids know]   
Easy kind of question   YES/NO [not if by "easy" it means more than short: Will the Yankees win the World Series?  Is the Ivy League worth the tuition?  Is there balm in Gilead?  Well, maybe the question is "easy" but the answer isn't.]   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
