Sun., 8/3 Amy Johnson
« on: August 03, 2014, 09:09:51 AM »
THEME:   Literature enjambed with kids' games
   
GOOD ONES:    
Palahniuk tale of a rowdy slumber party?   PILLOW FIGHT CLUB   
Orwell tale of Beanie Baby breeding?   STUFFED ANIMAL FARM   
Stud site   EAR LOBE [I thought MY STUDY]   
Late notice?   OBIT   
Wind in a pit   OBOE   
Old Bologna bread   LIRE [pronounced /balony/, it sounds like a stale sandwich]   
One with a second   DUELER [sounded like numbers to me]   
Base decision maker   UMP [could be The Evil One]     
   
BTW:   
Tolstoy tale of child's play   THUMB WAR AND PEACE [it's thumb wrestle]   
   
Carson tale of well-behaved classroom clock watchers   SILENT SPRING FEVER [clock-watching does not mean or suggest spring fever --- perhaps "day dreamers" would be better]   
   
These, in Juarez   ESTAS [exactly!]   
   
Parisian's "to be"   ETRE [but not Londoner's]   
   
Mastermind   RING LEADER [more often he's just a jerk]   
   
The Devil's label?   PRADA [from The Devil Wears Prada --- tough but fair]   
   
Drives the getaway car for   ABETS [tired of this clue?  What about "Watches out for"?]   
   
Winter outburst?   BRR [hardly an outburst --- more a mumbled interjection]   
   
   
RATING: ;D ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
