LAT Fri. 9/7 Kurt Meuller
« on: September 07, 2012, 09:23:38 AM »
Possible Title:   Y Is This Here?

Theme: The letter Y added (or substituting for an E) between two words of a phrase [but that’s the problem; two different approaches: see next]

Good Ones:
Inferior swim?   CHEESYDIP [cheese+dip: E cut then Y added]
Burly Green Bay gridder?   MEATYPACKER [meat packer: Y added]
Grand decade   CNOTES [took me awhile to get it: 10 cnotes = a grand]
New gnu   CALF [Isn’t he a Republican, Sir NuNu?]

Some Nits to Pick:
OSA is Spanish

Old congregating locale   STOA [stoa was a promenade while agora was a large market area]

AIRACE [not buying it as a real word]

ALLCASH [ditto]

RATING:   :-\  Hard to rate since there are good entries and some tough ones, which I enjoy, but the theme doesn’t measure up and there are two very dubious words and a misdefined term.

Yes, and on an airplane, but an airplane is not a meeting place anymore than a stoa was.
