Sun., 4/21 Robin Stears
« on: April 21, 2013, 09:45:36 AM »
THEME:   puns on herbs and a great title:  HERBAL TEASE (teas)
   
GOOD ONES:     
Observation about sprouting aromatic plants   SOME-THINGS-ARE-MINT-TO-BE   
Like something even better than a pungent herb?   BEYOND-BAYLEAF   
Soul searching events?   SEANCE   
Where It.'s at?   EUR [Italy is in Europe]   
Every garcon has one   CEDILLA [but not our keyboards]   
Center of gravity?   VEE [this and the garcon clue are "word clues" not "meaning clues"]   
Half up front?   HEMI   
McCartney title   SIR [not a song title]   
Weatherman's line   ISOBAR [not pick-up line]   
They're history   ANNALS   
Equal-ize?   SWEETEN [Equal = sugar substitute; note hyphen]    
Letters from your parents?   DNA   
   
BTW:   
Maidenform buy   SLIP [do women still buy them?  I thought they were pink-slipped]   

Always butting in   NOSY ["butting in" means interrupting; "nosy" means prying]   

Third man?   ABEL [I believe the attempt here, suggested by the question mark, is to refer to the famous Wells movie, but the title is The Third Man; hence, the clue should also contain the definite article.]   

SEIS is not used in English.   
   
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
