I love this series, and if B&H are good to us we will have another 19 to do

Agree - these have all been great. Really enjoyed today's. A couple I got with none or one letter, then one had me going on a completely opposite tangent based on the clue. Laughed at myself once solved

I so enjoyed this puzzle! Breezed through 4 and got sooooooooooooooo excited thinking I'd beat Slicko...then a brick wall. Took more letters on that one than all the others!

Oh well...sometimes chicken, sometimes feathers!

Thanks for the puzzle...!

More excellent choices. Especially liked the Elizabethan phrase. Thank you.

One unwelcome red screen for the wrong choice of a conjunction after two letters, but that happens sometimes when you go for it.

I, too, was nabbed by that unexpected "but"!

Fun puzzle. Thanks!

Now that the puzzle is over here's where I got stumped - on the Tolkien one, I guessed an "e" first. That gave me
_ _ _ _ _e _e e_ _ _ So of course I am trying to think of a Tolkien character "de something or other" - guessed the "o" so thought of every possible de esto, de ento, de ecko - spent more time on this than the others combined.
Didn't know about Tolkien's Elmo, but read about him after the puzzle - in retrospect a very cool clue which turned a simple puzzle into a real mindbender - kudos again to the dynamic duo.

Loved it as usual. Particularly liked the Shakespeare one. Very clever!! You two are really good. Nineteen more, yeah!!

So the puzzle was something about "Tickle Me Elmo"?

It was about Tickle me Elmo - fortunately after guessing an s, t and a I realized the puzzle ended with Sesame Street Character which is about when I smacked myself in the forehead.

I have a permanent forehead welt from similar puzzles.

The "Shakespeare" clued puzzle was, indeed, very clever: "'Tempest in a teapot' means the same thing as "much ado about nothing."

Lam - We are SO SO happy you got that! We thought we were incredibly clever but weren't sure anyone would get it.

Gary - I don't know where the Tolkein/Elmo thing came from, but I'm pretty sure it is right.

I'm glad you all like this series. We try to mix it up.

No, it was a great puzzle and clue, with the added red herring of "tempest" to send you the way of Caliban and Miranda or even *Forbidden Planet* and Robbie the Robot.
