LAT Sat. 6/16 Brad Wilber

Possible Title: Saturday “31”

Good Ones:
Become a patsy   BITE [as in “I’ll bite”]
Groom's bagful   OATS [not the marrying kind, the horseman]
Bobs, e.g.   DOS [as in hairdos]
...and good cluing throughout --- some, like bob, are a test of diction from generations ago.

By the Way:
The two Shakespearean references are both obscure, especially PALEFIRE which I didn’t know [making it obscure?], but FLEANCE you’d know if you studied Macbeth closely.  Anyway, they’re welcome in my book.  I also appreciated the Hobbs quote.

Who knew?:
From the sublime to the ridiculous, TRE was the name of a character in a totally inconsequential movie clued by a less than frontline actor.  (I’d almost, but not quite, rather go with the Italian for three.)

Some Nits to Pick:
FANDOM means a blog’s readership? --- maybe some or most are fans.  I wouldn’t think that those who are reading this were fans --- idly curious, maybe. ;)


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
