Sun., 1/19 John Lampkin
« on: January 19, 2014, 09:49:22 AM »
THEME:   "Oh, No!" title means there is a missing O which changes the meaning of a phrase
   
GOOD ONES:    
"$%*#& computer!"?   CRASH C(O)URSE   
Short anchor?   C(O)URT REPORTER [I thought it was Bob Costas]    :)
Spillane's inspiration?   MICKEY M(O)USE   
Like PETA members?   DOWN ON ALL F(O)URS   
Well-mannered sisters?   PROPER N(O)UNS   
Sugar daddy?   F(O)UNDING FATHER   
Way up   HIGH [as in "way up there"]   
Takedown expert?   STENO [I thought judo, etc.]   
Flash mob?   PAPARAZZI [indeed---that's why they should be illegal]   
Mug at a bar   STEIN [I thought "goon"]   
Batting organ   EYE   
Chain with popcorn   LOEWS [seems my granddaughter had one]   
One whose efforts were feudal   SERF [not "futile"]   
   
BTW:   
Prior to A.D.   BCE [I really dislike this term, meaning "before the common era."  Was the previous era uncommon?  What then does A.D. stand for in this lexicon?  Silly anti-Christian jargon.]   
   
More than dull   DRY AS DUST [never really understood this simile --- here DRY is bad, but weather-wise and oenologically it's good --- so what makes dry a pejorative?]   
   
ESSA is only Italian and ETE only French.   
   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D [it will be hard to top this one]
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

EUR... No indication in the clue that the answer is an abbreviation.
