Fri., 6/21 Ed Sessa
« on: June 21, 2013, 09:03:16 AM »
THEME:   intrusive F sound in phrases [would the title be "Get the F Out?]
   
GOOD ONES:    
Dog afficianados?   GREYHOUND-BUFFS   
Lilliputian ocean formations?   PEE-WEE-REEFS [Brooklyn Dodger shortstop Reese]   
Fodder for the British tabloids?   NOBLE-GAFFES   
Decide not to run   KILL [as with motors]   
Rhymes of rap   BUSTA [how is it possible that I know this name?]   
Horse show   MR-ED   
Park and drive   GEARS   
   
BTW:   
Ed seems to be showing us his scientific bent:    
     Bone used in pronation   ULNA   
     Lab glass   PYREX   
     Element abundant in liver   IRON   
     It may involve pi   AREA   
     NOBLE GAS
And his appreciation of Jonathan Swift:   
     Lilliputian and Brobdingnagian in the same puzzle!   
And his complete disregard of my notion of foreign words in English puzzles:   
     A tenth of zehn   EINS   
     Hot time in the cite   ETES [isn't this also a second person familiar verb?]   
   
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
