WEIRD WP THIS AM (STRANGE DEATHS)

Very bizarre; but any who could google this one has my admiration!

I think the puzzle may have set a record that must be reserved.

Those kind of WPs are a bit irritating
because I always want to know the
identity of the person described....

But then, they'd be gogglable and
that would spoil the Puzzle for me.

A little bizarre, perhaps, but I did enjoy the puzzle this morning. Rowlanda, I'm with you; I would like to know who the individual was in each puzzle.

If you liked this, Look up the Darwin Awards, which awards most bizarre deaths -- weeding out the gene pool.... I am sure they prolly have web site, I know there are books!

Great puzzle. I have been enjoying all of them lately. We seem to be at a highpoint of WP writing.

Great WP.
Didn't do too well, however this is one of my favorite subjects. Have collection of numerous books, video tapes, and files.I add to the file whenever there are articles in newspapers and magazines. The Darwin Award books are good but I recommend "Man Suffocated by Potatoes" by William A. Marsano or "The Comedian Who Choked To Death On A Pie" by the Editors of the Fortean Times .

What a way to go!

Hopefully no one has ever choked to death eating peppermint patties!

Fun word puzzle; enjoyed it.

It was a fun puzzle, but some of the phrasing was, for want of another word, awkward. Always read it out loud so you can hear how it sounds before you submit it. Just a suggestion.

After the comments surrounding my comments about the quizzes on less than cheerful subjects, I have decided to be deathly silent about this one.

I think Sploofusionist might have set a record for the most letters used. In other words, he used phraseology that used the whole alphabet, minus a very few letters, when possible for each puzzle. This is kinda painstaking. This editor is probably worried to death.

Spacecat--I'm assuming you were a "6FU" fan?

I must have missed the "quick brown fox" clue.

I don't think Sploofusionist wrote this WP. I think it was by Sploofanote. Or? In any case, I missed it, darn! I just notice the names of the authors on the list of upcoming puzzles.
