Joyce - love the term and the history. Wow. The only one. So this guy sets a goal for himself, puzzles out a way to get a university to grant him a degree, makes a name for himself - literally! - and goes on to play games for a living.

A contradiction to the usually meaning of the term 'Shortz sighted.'

Wombat - I seem to have found an extra -ly in my post. Is it yours?

Shortz has put out a number of Sudoku books. I used to carry one around with me while traveling, before I got more comfortable doing Sudoku on screen.

I've always enjoyed the Dell and Penny Press variety puzzle magazines. I often treat myself to a new one when I take a plane or train.

Thank you Plum for finding that LY. Now I know where to look if parts of poozles get misplaced. It is real easy to lose an LY in fact I have clear just lost two more. I like Shortz sighted too. I thing you are a frustrated enigmatologist.

About a week ago, we were having fun with mini shotgun poozles where the answer was announced here, and what you won was the right to offer the next one. Wasn't it spoonerisms? Anyway, I thought Vowel Movements would work well that way. If anybody else is interested, I'll offer the first More...

Keith - wrest my wrist

My turn - Viking nanny
12/Mar/17 2:47 PM

Would you accept Norse nurse for Viking nanny. I don't remember that you had to get one correct to post one with the Spoonerisms. It was a free for all.
Try RIDICULOUS GIRL or maybe RIGID ROD.
I hope those fit the rules, because I can't remember what they are!

Yes, we were trying to ask the solvers to post another so that there was always one active for someone to be working on. The downside is that it's harder to create a puzzle than it is to solve one, so often it took quite a while in between posting a solution and posting a new offering. It got More...

Not following the rules but... Let go Elbow;

Silly Sally,

Wombat,
Stiff staff?
Try avian poet.

Keith's Vowel Movements, if I remember his story correctly, are a type of puzzle he's long practiced creating and solving. You take a word and keep the spelling and order of all letters in that word but only exchange one vowel for another to make a new word. Then you create a clue that points to More...

Pam - bird bard

Bunny croak

As with any puzzle you can make it more challenging, and perhaps more amusing, to solve with less obvious or more cunning clues.

Nicene quick relish

You can also excite the excitable with double entendres (popular on this site) that will pass censorship.

Here's an example of a combined clue for the VM set.

Shopper's confusion

Beware because the VM set of words are NOT synonyms for either shopper or confusion. You have to think of a VM set of words that describe what may make a shopper confused.

Hint: it happens to me in the grocery rather often.

I lost a post there. It was to tell Joyce and Pam that they agreed with my answer and to post another one INKY NERD

Ok. Gotta let my puzzle 'shotgun' cool off plus my tablet needs to charge. We also must bank an hour tonight, so I must close my eyes for a while. Morning is going to come early and I am not a morning person.

Dark dork?
12/Mar/17 4:07 PM

Bunny Croak could be RABBIT RIBBIT.
12/Mar/17 4:15 PM
 |  |

DARK DORK was my intention.
12/Mar/17 4:16 PM
 |  |

Oh, and yes to Norse nurse for Viking nanny.

Hope the explanations and examples help.

Here are the VMs I've just offered all in one post:

Bunny croak (straightforward synonyms)
Nicene quick relish (cunning clue)
Beat the member (amusing clue)
Shopper's confusion (combination clue, no synonyms)

Good maeN.

I just recently saw that old MASH with Radar's explanation of the time difference. How the actor kept that all straight is a miracle, and how the writer figured out how to write those crazy lines is another.

I went to to Australia before the advent of home computers, websites, and email, so I had to calculate the time difference to make hotel reservations and local travel arrangements by telephone. I have no recollection of how I researched where I wanted to stay! How did I even know the name of More...

Plum, you're really good at these. For Nicene quick relish I got saver savor. For beat the member I got stamp stump. I'm drawing a blank on shopper's confusion. maeN to you, too.
