Thu., 3/6 John Guzzetta
« on: March 06, 2014, 08:43:20 AM »
THEME:   phrases contain prefixes of SPHERE
Word that can follow {theme}   SPHERE   
Elementary fellow?   SHERLOCK [I'd exchange fellow for "chap."]   
Land at Orly?   TERRE   
Lunchbox item   SOUPTHERMOS [what's a soup thermos --- anything like a coffee, tea, or water thermos?]   
Empty threat   PAPER TIGER [it's the person not the threat, so the clue should indicate person: "All bark-no bite guy" or maybe just "Obama" --- sorry for politics]    :'(
Floride & ETAT are not words in English, and NLER is not a word in any language.   
CPA's office, perhaps   STE [likely an abbr. of SUITE, but if so, most CPA's don't have suites;  I'd go with "Magnate's office"]   
I liked this puzzle for its scientific bent:  exo-, thermo-, meso-, troposhpere as well as BOSONS.   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
