I had not 1 but 4 or 5 typos.......started to bail but stuck to it. Very clever. I did like it....I just stunk up the place with my score however. I will be the lowest tonight. LOL

No...I will be the lowest. I really had trouble with the words on this one. Took quite a while before I got it, and even that didn't seem to help.

Using my Wheel of Fortune formula this was pretty easy.

This was close to the worst I've ever done on a puzzle. The first one I had made no sense to me, the second barely did, and it was only with the third one that I had a puzzle that I could figure out without almost every letter. Others may have loved it, but it was nothing but frustration for me. Clearly not my cup of green tea!

I'm with Barry on this one and the one from this morning - probably the best one, two punch I've seen on WPs. Tonight's was one heck of a challenge but really fun.

At this moment I am the lowest. But it was fun.

I don't think I can put this morning's and this evening in the same category (for me anyway) - sorry - I pretty much ended as clueless as I started - and I think quite possibly the lowest score I've ever had - I could get the songs - but could not put clues and puzzle together -- congrats to those who got it -

This was pretty clever, I had a tough time coming up with the key word that drove the puzzle. The clues were great I thought.

Clues were great, puzzles were funny - I just did lousy. But it was fun anyway so that's what counts.

Now that the puzzle's over, will some-one please tell me what it was about. The answers were recognisable songs with strange words inserted (one of which I seem to remember started with "sz").

I'm genuinely confused.....


..... though that's not an unusual state of affairs for me.

I think it was Chinese food, but some of them were maybe cities? I was thrown by one that had two words replaced after having done four with only one word, and the second word was an unfamiliar spelling that ate the whole alphabet.

I'm kinda glad I was kicked off before I finished

my words included szechuan mao and kowloon (my first, which killed me) so I assumed that it turned well known songs into Chinese themes.

Maurlin, WOF formula is rstlne, and take a vowel if you're still stuck.

I'm so glad I asked - it (almost) makes sense now.

Somehow I'd got it into my head the puzzle would be about singing at American Football or Baseball games and I thought the strange words must have been Native American.

D'oh!

I thought it was a really fun challenge. Very clever and humorous, thanks Sploofusaurus! I didn't do well, but I sure enjoyed puzzling them out and laughed when I saw the connections between the clues and phrases.

If anyone's interested, here were my five clues/phrases:

The more I wanshu - the mao i see you
Spicy song (sp) - it was just szechuan of those things
Chop, chop! - if you knew suey like i know suey
Goodness gracious! - great walls of fire
Hey! No Peking! - Beijing went the strings of my heart

Can you put them up on the board? Lots, lots of guessing. I even googled the actual songs from the closing ceremony of the Olympics (incuding Led Zepplin's Whole Lotta Love) before I started to play, but that didn't help a snit.

Good puzzle, I just wish I was able to think outside the box a bit more.

I took some well-known Western-world songs, added a bit of Oriental flavor to the wording to make them punny.
To help out, I also made some of the clues punny.
Then I attributed the whole puzzle content to the Olympics Closing Ceremony, which was quite bogus!

My apologies to those who did not follow the gag, and thought there were misspellings.

For those who did: glad you enjoyed it!

I had great walls of fire which I got with no letters - the rest of them killed me including kowloon and then one that had shrimp toasts (my first one) - I see some of tregators and can see those right off (even though the answers are posted - like goodness gracious - great walls - complete sense to me) - it looks like there was a good mix of challenging and easy - I just wish I had a few more that weren't so complicated (no I already have lots of whine for my cheese - thank you - but on to the next!

The misspelling was on my part not the puzzle, the letters I typed just didnt go with what was there.

Very enjoyable. Fortunately, my first clue/phrase was easy enough that I caught the "drift" of the theme.
If I had gotten a few of the other phrases first, I would have plummeted down the list quickly.

Sometimes better to be lucky than good.

Kudos to the author , Sploofusaurus. Clever concept.

Thanks for the WOF info...actually I use that too, but it didn't seem to help on this one, except for great walls of fire.
