I was laughing too hard to do very well, and forgot the puzzle "theme" twice, but still enjoyed the heck out of it.

Yeah, I got the dreaded pink screen twice from not paying attention to what I was typing. Of course, it's hard to type when you're on the floor laughing.

Very clever indeed! A true gem of creative word play. I hope there are more in this series.

I made some rookie mistakes (Note to self: READ answer prior to hitting "submit"!), but I really enjoyed it. Great job! Please keep 'em coming

Excellent puzzle and very funny. I hope we'll see more of these. In the meantime, I hope I learn to type in the phrases correctly!

You're very clever with these.

If a pun makes hubbie groan you know it is a goodie.

This series is great; more!

Much more fun this time since I was in synch for this excellent and quite punny puzzle.

Kudos to Lynn. Her twisted mind has a lifetime WP franchise now.

I'll bet she thinks up these devilish phrases while standing in line at the supermarket.

If I thought them up in the grocery store line I prolly wouldn't remember by the time I got home!

Glad you enjoyed the puzzle! Here are all ten phrases for those who asked:

gandhi would not allow the orchestra to visit india because he was anti ("violins")
he was so obviously the father it was readily ("apparent")
the honeydews and casabas are watched closely so they ("cantaloupe")
the subjects jealousy was evident in the painting because it was a ("portrait")
the king of siam was upset when the governess wore a scarf so he ("bandanna")
hudson thought his four leaf clover was lucky but it was just a ("shamrock")
if mollusks were narcissistic you could say they were ("shellfish")
i cant command a horde or rule mongolia but ("Genghis Khan")
their daughter was sinking so the hiltons got a therapist to help ("periscope")
the buzzard wanted to avoid a luggage fee so he just took a ("carrion")

Buzzard. Tough word.

Spent a few letters narrowing that down. Muggard was also possible.

I kept repeating the word "portrait" over and over until

Good work on squeezing in the mollusk reference.

We don't see enough mollusk references here on Sploofus.

Thanks for posting the whole list. Now I can be amazed at you all over again! Now I'm marveling over the ones I hadn't seen before. Fabulous.
