Fri. 7/31 Kurt Krauss
« on: Today at 08:59:28 AM »
THEME:   entries spelled either left or right, up or down depending on meaning
   
GOOD ONES:     
Ring punch   SSORCTFEL [left cross kind of "crosses" one up since it is written from right to left]   
Level-headed   DOWN TO EARTH [literally, one reads down to the word earth]   
Ness, for one   LOCH [I thought Eliot]   
Pepper, for one: Abbr.   SGT [I thought food]   
Brest friend   AMI [I read it "Best"]   
Canon offering, briefly   SLR [cameras, but I thought church law]   
Animal house   ZOO [I thought the movie]   
   (That's five clues that misdirected me suggesting either I am rather a dupe or Kurt is rather clever --- or both.)
   
BTW:   
Chooses the window instead of the aisle?   ELOPES [in old comedies the window is the means by which the woman gets out of her house to marry on the sly --- I guess]   
   
Neither juillet nor ete is used in our language.   
   
Govt. group that began in 1908   FBI [I thought there was a mistake so I looked it up ---turns out it had undergone only a name change under Hoover in the mid-Thirties --- that's what comes from getting one's "history" from Hollywood]   
   
   
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
