LAT Sun. 2/19 John Lampkin
« on: February 19, 2012, 09:51:38 AM »
Good Ones:
Percent add-on   ILE
Pockets picked at a deli?   PITA
Choir section   APSE [same clue used a few times in this puzzle, but this is a different spin]
Strikers’ org.?   PBA [bowlers]
Put away dishes?   ATE
Shaver   PLANE
It’ll never fly   EMU
USA rival   TBS
Theme: animals owned by presidents along with the animal sounds clued as advice

By the Way:
I was wondering if the advice given by these past presidents’ staffs would be as good or even better than the advice of Mr. Obama’s staff.

Who knew?:
Coolidge had a hippo, Jefferson a mockingbird, and Harrison a goat

Some Nits to Pick:
Too amusing for words   RICH [they don’t really mean the same thing: the former is sarcastic while the latter is praise, though RICH can be used sarcastically in the phrase: “Oh, that’s rich”]

“Not again”   OHBOY [Not again! Another idiom stretch.  If I had written, “Oh, boy! Another idiom stretch,” the meaning would be different.]

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
