I had a spelling error in mine, at least it didn't make much sense the way it was written.....sooooooo....after the 3rd (yes 3) SORRY's....I gave up. However...what part I did do was a lot of fun.

You should have turned in a support ticket and an editor would have reset it for you.........you could still do that.

Way to go, best pAl. Enjoyed that a lot (much more than my score shows).

By the way, are you still mad at me? The pie you threw...well, I'm just saying somebody in the business should have taught you that you're supposed to use whipped cream.

(And the hidden rock was a definite faux pas no-no.)

I really enjoyed your puzzle Al!! And I must say scored better than any other word puzzle I've done to date. (That still is not good). It was well written and oh so true. Great job!!

Didn't do too well, but enjoyed doing it. Took some risks that didn't pay off.

Love the content...right on.

Good puzzle. Was hoping my favorite one would make the cut..."No good deed goes unpunished". Thanks!

you know you are desperate when you are using your hour in tokyo airport to do the WP.
Yes I wrote to my wife first but....

Great puzzle Al; I did not try to google but my impression is that this one would have been hard. i was fearing it would be a plug in and get 5 set but not at all. Lots of nice pithy thoughts i'd not seen before -- more just like this please!

Very clever, Al

Got hung up by software again - pink screens when simply trying to omit extra spaces. I hope the software will soon be improved to submit responses ONLY when the solve button has been accessed.

Col, could you be doing that thing you do when you post multiple times by accident? Maybe catching the edge of the Enter key or something? That would make me NUTS!

Anyway, fun puzzle, thanks Al!

Smoke, I don't know what key I hit by accident (maybe Enter), but the cursor was not on the Solve key.

Maybe it wouldn't have to be. Never tried.

No, it doesn't have to be. The answer field is way too sensitive.

I generally paste the whole answer in there. Today Microsoft Word did not highlight extra spaces between two words, and I was trying to remove them.

I'd just type them in if I were you to be safe. I have been burned badly in there by C&P.

That's never a problem here.

Anyhow kudos to Peppermint Patty Al for such a whimsical set of puzzles

Many thanks for the compliments and I'm very pleased to get what appears to be a "21 thumb salute" from Collioure on the most recent post.


The scores seemed to be strong for almost everyone who played.
There are a lot of "Murphyesque "laws around so perhaps another word puzzle with this theme is worth considering.
Here is the complete list of ten for your information

ALVANDY's Murphy's Laws

your child will wait until youre fully dressed before spilling food on you ("a TODDLER law")
after a flawless demonstration you will trip on the way back to your seat ("a MARTIAL ARTS law")
never argue with a fool people might not see the difference ("a DEBATE law")
golf is ninety percent mental and ten percent mental ("a DUFFER'S law")
boss will drop by your workspace when you accidentally open an adult link ("an INTERNET law")
sex takes up the smallest amount of time and causes the most trouble ("a LOVEMAKING law")
your tank lid will not face the gas pump at which you park your car ("a MOTORIST'S law")
you finally hit it big then you discover all the friends you never had ("a LOTTERY law")
a pat on the back is only a few inches from a kick in the pants ("a WORKPLACE law")
get elected get reelected dont get mad get even ("a POLITICIAN'S law")

Now that you have posted all the answers, I must ask about the phrase "tank lid."

Is that Punxsutawney for gas cap?
