Fri., 5/16 Jack McInturff
« on: May 16, 2014, 09:30:05 AM »
THEME:   intrusive P
"White Fang," for example?   WILD PROSE ["wild rose" is the phrase to which P is added --- "WILD" refers to Call of the Wild, the companion to White Fang]   
One that keeps bumping into senators?   AWKWARD PAGE [awkward age]   
Trick or treat, e.g. (twice)   VERB and NOUN   
Nice setting   MER [may need the definite article in French]   
Shore thing   DUNE [not "sure thing"]   
W, for one   DIRECTION [I thought a Bush reference]   
Champagne toast?   SALUT    
Indicator of possession   DEED [not punctuation, as I thought]   
One full of hot air   DRYER [not your English professor]   
DH, usually  ALER [no such word is used anywhere but in Xwords]   
Indicator of possession in the bathroom   HERE [crappy clue: the single word is seldom if ever used in this case but is used in a million others]      
Is more than a bystander   AIDS [awkward: AIDS is a verb; the clue calls for a person --- the nominative.  "Aider" would fit the clue.]   
She, in Lisbon   ELA [but not in the English-speaking world]   
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

In addition to a crappy clue, we had a crappy commentary.  Seems I need an editor; want the job?
