General Discussion / Good clue for ATE OFF?
« Last post by mrdrawerguy on March 28, 2015, 02:14:29 PM »
It can't be ATE OUT because it is crossing EXED OUT.
Thanks.

THEME:   none
   
GOOD ONES:     
K.C. setting   CST [clock setting for the city]   
Paper slip   TYPO   
Tube top   CAP [I thought some clothing name I had never heard of]   
   
BTW:   
Discouraged   SCARED OFF [tin-earism: to be disheartened is not to be scared]   
   
Dream state?   LA LA LAND [to me, it's Los Angeles, and the dream is a nightmare]    :)
   
Misfit '70s sitcom   SWEAT HOG [imagine that John Travolta was one --- he's come a long way since then]   
   
RATING: ;D ;D

THEME:   TANG is part of a phrase; TANG spelled backwards is GNAT; a GNAT flies; and the old joke "…doing the backstroke" suggests the fly in the clue (GNAT) is backwards
   
GOOD ONES:     
2/3, say   DATE   
   
BTW:   
Several   A FEW [tin-earism: A FEW is not "a lot": we say "quite a few" for several]   
   
Raise your hand if you figured out this theme and if it was worth the effort?   

I did enjoy the fills, especially LeRoy Anderson's "Blue Tango,"  one of my favorite recordings from my childhood.  Raise your hand if you knew this one right off. (my hand's raised like a kid in class showing off)  8)
   
   
RATING: ;D ;D

THEME:   first words of random phrases can be associated with spring cleaning
   
GOOD ONES:     
Project suggested by {theme}   SPRING CLEANING   
   
BTW:   
Pommes and SEL may be acceptable because of their use in menus, but NIE is "never"   
   
I've noted after a week or so of doing puzzles on computer that it makes no difference the medium, enjoyment is achieved only by a well-constructed puzzle.   
   
RATING: ;D

I believe the original Carlin routine found on his first and best album "Take-Offs and Put-Ons" had the radio station as "Radio WINO in Western Walla Walla."  If "wonderful" were ever used, it would be match the other W's, but I've never heard it delivered that way.

Today's New York Times crossword by Will Shortz---I wonder if he has a brother named Jim---is titled "Making Connections." One of the answers is the popular website LINKEDIN and the theme answers are common phrases prefaced with IN. Examples:

Diapers? INFANCYPANTS
Desk chairs? INBOXSEATS
Diet? INTAKECONTROL
Atheistic Cuban leader? INFIDELCASTRO
Add to the Video Clip Hall of Fame? INDUCTTAPE

"Drunk's favorite radio station?" was WINO. The late George Carlin did a hilarious routine about "Wonderful WINO Radio" but there really is a radio station with those call letters. It's in Odessa, New York, and simulcasts the programming of WRFI in Ithaca.
