OK I cry uncle! A fun puzzle indeed...but what the HELL did those clues mean?
The phrases made sense; the clues not so much.

None of the five were the slightest use to me...would someone explain them please in a pm?

Ditto here. Fun puzzle - even though there was one I never heard of.

But the clues weren't any help at all. I didn't understand them, even after finishing the phrases.

I enjoyed this one as well, and I agree with Geri that the part was fun.

Brilliant WP that taught a mini history education. I agree with the others that the clues did require a lot of lateral thinking, but again, a fun puzzle.

Enjoyed solving this one.

In retrospect all my clues made sense.

I had been finished for ten minutes before I realized that "me truck" indicated "I-van."

Yes, Leslie, but you go too fast and don't draw nearly enough letters.

i enjoyed the puzzle which was sufficiently straight that the facts that the clues were cryptic (and essentially only confirmed the answers and did not help in solving them) was irrelevant.
But this brings me to a philosophical question -- feel free to yawn or bypass altogether. Should the clues be real help, or does it only matter with very short or very hard clues? I trhink so -- remember we used to have clues that were either blank or identical for each phrase?
I believe when I do a hard puzzle I work really hard on getting the clues to give some information but maybe others dont agree or dont care.

Don't you love it when the clue doesn't mean anything to start with, but then becomes obvious after you solve it? That's my joy, Ann

Short puzzles really need super clues. My least favorite is when the clue is the same for every puzzle. I thought the clues on this one pointed me in the right direction, but then I used a wrong word on one and got three red screens before I caught it.

I thought the clues were brilliant...after the fact.
