LAT Sun. 9/18 Pawel Fludzinski

Idiom’s Delight
The title plays on “idiot’s delight” but does not seem to match the content of the theme entries in that they are maxim’s, not idioms.  But the contradictory maxims were clever and fun to fill out.

Play mates?   CAST
Pay stub?   OLA
OK at the corral   YEP
Sign of summer   LEO [oldie but goodie]
Reason for tears   ALLERGY
Break points at Wimbledon   TEATIMES
Something to see, perhaps   BET [better without “perhaps”]
Some whistle blowers   REFS [“Some” ruins it]

Not square   HEP [that’s So last year --- OLDHAT]

“Ignorance is bliss” is really misleading since Pope wrote: “When ‘tis folly to be wise, ignorance is bliss.”  Somehow that important clause got lost and with it his point.

 :(
Greek gp.   SOR [I’m guessing SOR is an abbreviation for sorority, which I don’t believe has an abbreviation.  I’d go with the great “Spanish composer.”]

Crossing MES with ESTA is particularly irksome.

RATING:   ;D ;D ;D Three grins = Excellent: Loved it; Two grins = Good: Enjoyed it; One grin = Satisfactory: A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Unsatisfying: No fun
