Sun., 3/16 C.C. Burnikel
« on: March 16, 2014, 10:04:55 AM »
THEME:   four C's in random phrases; hence the clever title "Foresees"
Private beds?   COTS [Army privates]   
Brief reply?   ANS   
Ma-___ store   AND PA [it's Mom and Pop shop; this is a non-rhyming corruption of the idiom]   
Call-to-action response to one's own rhetorical question   I SAY NO [seems the speaker is calling for inaction]   
No more guesses, just tell me   I'LL BITE ["I'll bite" suggests the speaker wants to make no guesses but just be given the answer]    
Inside company   INTEL [seems to need quotation marks around "Inside" since that's part of the slogan]   
neun, Drei, OTRA, and ACA are foreign words we don't ever use   
Diamond thieves' undoings?   TAGS [I would like this baseball one, but most tags occur after the slider is safe]   
Despite all my carping, there was much to like about this puzzle.
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
