Post by: magus on October 25, 2015, 11:08:32 AM
THEME:   Letter C removed from phrase yields an odd phrase
Title: "Now You See It"   [See is a homonym of C, and the rest of the familiar expression is "now you don't" as in the missing C]   
Knight's comment when he was mistakenly put in a corner?   I'M NOT A ROOK [echoing Richard Nixon]   
North African hops drier?   BARBARY OAST   
John and Peter's woodwind?   APOSTLE'S REED ["The Apostle's Creed" is a prayer]   
Citrus high?   ORANGE RUSH   
Sun. delivery   SER [not the newspaper]   
Waffle enter?   EFS [a way to spell the letter F is EF]   
Immortal first baseman   WHO [from the comedy routine "Who's on First"]   
King of the sea?   LEAR SAILING [shouldn't the clue be "King on the sea"?  LEAR SAILING says what the king is doing]   
Alternative to fries   TOTS [I guess this refers to Tater Tots which I believe are frozen fried potatoes that are reheated in an oven --- so not much of an alternative on my plate]   
Like an ideal negotiation   NO LOSE [not an ideal entry since such negotiations are termed "win-win"]   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
