...but it's not a gimme. Good job!

It is definitely not a gimme. I had one puzzle where I thought I knew the answer with no letters, only to be wrong by three of them. And my last one was a true toughie, which it would amaze me to discover someone got with no letters, considering the obscurity of the clue. Probably the hardest rhyming puzzle to date!

Amen, brother! I was swinging along oozing confidence when all of a sudden RAID!!! Oh well. It was fun.

I know the one you're talking about, Lane. The clue was obscure enough to make me doubt what turned out to be the correct answer.

But heck...not bad for a Monday morning!

best ever rhyming puzzle.
the clues were indeed not gimmes and really made you think.
Well done!
Incidentally, I note that most of the recent puzzles are more brain tests than knowledge tests; and I cant believe you can google the answers! That has my heartiest approval. But what do others think? Are they more fun?

I can't see someone getting this in 5 - but then I've been wrong before - I'm surprised at those that did get in less than 15 - they must not have had the same puzzles as me - two of the ones I had were just impossible - enjoyable puzzle - but one - still the clue doesn't make sense -- even after I guessed all the letters - some gave me the giggles though

Tough puzzle, but very enjoyable. Well done, Sploofusionist!

Loved the puzzle! The lesson I learned on one of the puzzles was you couldn't assume the order of the bug and the rhyming word so unless you make a lucky guess, I suspect it will take at least one letter per puzzle to establish the order of the words.

Definitely the toughest rhyming WP yet!

(About googleable puzzles - I'm always a little bummed when there's a puzzle where all the answers can be found on one page somewhere. I know that even if I do great, I'll be way out of the top 10, b/c I do consider googling during the puzzle cheating, but I know many others don't agree.)

By the way; if you STILL have not had enough bugs after doing this WP you could check out the most recent quizzes list --where a progressive quiz about bugs might satisfy yourt craving.

Got "Bit" on that one.

I also like the puzzles that are brain teasers rather than knowledge based. I have Googled for answers on some puzzles, but don't really like to do it. It's much more satisfying to get a high ranking on a true cranium buster than to get it by Googling.

Cathy....thank you for helping me on the "bug" quiz....I had just read the thread when I did the Word Puzzle, and was stuck on one. Had "- I - E" Then I remembered what Cathy said about "getting bit"....and wrote Mite Bite!!!!

I must admit to have Googled myself a couple of times lately - because I have too much on my mind and needed to find a path through the MUD!!!! Sploofus is my soft place to fall at the it has to be easy!!!!
