Sun., 6/22 Mike Peluso
« on: June 22, 2014, 10:00:28 AM »
THEME:   phrase changes meaning by a single vowel substitution for a long E sound
   
GOOD ONES:     
Clancy explaining the spelling of his name?   THERE IS NO I IN TOM    
Character in "Satanic Star Trek"?   SPOCK OF THE DEVIL    
Gorgeous farm gal feeding the pigs?   SLOPPING BEAUTY    
Bear's cry   SELL [I thought ROAR or HOWL, not stocks]   
Keep the beat?   PATROL [I thought drummer not cop]   
Apple consumer   EVE [I thought computers]   
Bygone theatres   RKOS [I had ODEA]   
   
BTW:   
Distinguished types   SCHOLARS [I knew too many of them to describe them so]   
   
It's nothing to Hollande   RIEN [but it's wrong to me --- and who is Hollande that I should care?]   
   
Mari de la mere   PERE [mere without l'accent aigu means simple, so we could read the clue as "husband of simple" --- sorry, the French today has gone to my tete (Spanish speakers forgive me)]   
   
   
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
