WE ASKED 100 PEOPLE

Just in case nobody has said. Love this theme; at least one of the 'wrong' answers was very funny but in a weird way made perfect sense, once you knew where you were going.
Keep it up!

I can't say I love this theme, since for every one that is actually funny, there's one that is so totally random that you have to just guess letters until you find one that fits. And any puzzle that is so random is a failure, as far as I'm concerned, because it requires not skill but luck.

WHAT??? How does it not require skill to work out the words without having it handed to you by the clue? I found there were key words in almost every puzzle that gave me a place to start, and I didn't get any obscure words or unusual letter combinations to trip me up and cost me a ton of letters and hundreds of points. I thought mine were clever and fun.

Maybe we got different puzzles.

I liked it because I could not be tempted to use the "Google system" to find my answers. Something that seems to be a controversial method. Of course if it is a questionable tactic I will use it.

I must have gotten different puzzles than Smoke did, because I had at least two where the answers were so totally unrelated to the clue in any way that they were useless, and there was no way to figure out the answer (or at least the key word in the answer) without just arbitrarily guessing letters and hoping a word would eventually appear.

The starting points for me: three of them began with "something", as did two or three of the ones I had in the previous puzzle like this, which gave me three vowels and n-s-t. The others began with "a", which was repeated in "had" and "have", I think it was and other words in those puzzles.

I knew going in that the clues wouldn't be helpful, that they would be really off-the-wall responses to the puzzle/question, so I didn't depend on them for help with the solution, just something to chuckle about when each puzzle was solved.

When I first started playing, the "clues" were usually just a repetition of the theme, so I never developed an expectation that they were supposed to be much help.

I'll go down the middle here and say I like this sort of puzzle if the answer isn't out of left field. If at the end you gio "oh, that's funny, what a knucklehead." then that ids cool. If you can't even see where the answer came from, that's stupid.

Sometimes I think it should be called "We asked 100 morons.."

If you ask 100 people anything, odds are extremely good you'll hit a moron.

So look at the other 99 people. If none of them are morons, you're a winner!

Morons don't recognize other morons. They think the other 99 are brilliant if their socks match.

My socks match but my feet look odd.
And that last sock needed salt.

You guys are so nuts. Real nice socks, though. I need to go find one to go this black one. What color do you think would look good with it?

Smoke, I find that brown or navy goes quite nicely with black, although I'm not sure if you have red or white wine with it.

I think I'll go with the red sock and the white wine. Now, lederhosen or bermuda shorts?

Hey, Justin, you think you could market some Sploofus socks to go with the t-shirts?

...and those would be matching socks, of course.

Hmm, Smoke, leiderhosen or Bermudas...that's a tough call. What would look better with a olive green felt hat with a feather?

editing prior post: lederhosen (not liederhosen, meaning "songs breeches" - don't ask) and "an" olive not "a" olive...
whew, i feel much better.

I thought the puzzle was fun enough, but, at the risk of being overly sensitive, which I know I am regarding this topic (as my grandfather and father were, and my brother is a police officer), I did not find anything funny about the police being associated with pigs...although I'm sure some moron probably did answer such a survey question this way, I think the author could have found something other than this one that would have sufficed for this WP.

Again; although this answer might have offended some it did help me get the theme. And it made me laugh..
A dangerous race was the theme of the clue; the answer was... Arab.

honey, i understand your point. my uncle and my brother are law enforcement officers and my sister in law is deputized as a 911 dispatcher.

a long time ago someone told me that p-i-g stood for:

Pride
Integrity
Guts

somehow, that makes it less offensive for me.

One of my ex-husbands was a cop, and his chief bought all the officers tie pins with a smiling pig face with a police hat on, with Pride * Integrity * Guts in a blue border around the edge. The whole force wore them proudly. I'm sure no disrespect to police officers was even dreamed by the puzzle author.

Then again, nothing to do with the job, but calling my ex a pig would be an insult to fine swine everywhere.

Now I regress...

Perhaps my 14-year-old is distantly related to some of y'all. She insists on wearing mismatched socks at all times. Is this some kind of national trend or should I be worried? Maybe she's devoting a good deal of her natural youthful rebellion into the socks thing -- which is great by me.

By the way, you are all such a breath of fresh, funny air. I was having a hard time sitting up straight in my chair while reading some of these -- until it got serious, of course.
