That one kicked my butt! It probably doesn't help with the 100 degree heat and air on the blitz - good stuff when I finally got them

I think that was the most difficult one ever. Next time maybe give us a little break. Excellent job. Now I have to go take a pill.....

I agree! I couldn't figure out how the clues were related, most of the time. Poor score for me, that's for sure!

I really enjoyed it because it was
challenging and couldn't be googled.

have a chance to google....

It was hard to figure out how the clues fit with the puzzle. Was difficult for me and I didn't do very well.

OOOOPs....nearly posted what I THOUGHT it was about,
and where the clues were meant to lead us....
Keep forgetting that others may not stay up so late

I thought the clues I got were very helpful. They all told me something. (One of them would've given me the whole puzzle with one letter if I hadn't typo'd twice!)
Fun puzzle OC.

Fun puzzle, OC! I love the challenging ones, and you delivered. Good job!

I typo'd three times, ticks me off! Good challenge, got the concept right away, took way more than my usual high number! Who cares? Had fun, clever puzzle!

Probably took me longer than any WP I've done but it was well worth it. I thought the clues were great and when you ultimately figured it out the answers were fun and really interesting.

nicely constructed and a good theme; kicked my rear end properly!
Well done!

By far one of the more challenging WPs I've taken in a while but I enjoyed it, even through the fog of antibiotics and decongestants

My fifth puzzle had a misleading and inaccurate word which cost me a bunch of turns as I tried to figure out what could possibly be wrong with my answer. Up until then I was enjoying the puzzle and thought it was both fun and challenging. But that fifth puzzle stuck in my craw, I have to admit.

I loved it..AND it brought back some memories for me. I once adored Jose Jimenez....I thought he was hilarious. (okay, so I'm simple . Good one Randy.

Sorry to those who hated it, mondegreens & malapropisms are tricky. I knew it would be a letter burner but I tried to make sure the common letters were in each puzzle & no in/on or has/had & that it had a mix of both old & new. Thanks to all who liked it I'm not quite sure if I should submit Part 11, I wrote them together. Tallactor would you post the problem here or PM me, I'm not quite sure which one was wrong. No spelling errors this time, so I'm improving

It was difficult for me but I had no problems with the clues. I thought they were spot on......after I solved each puzzle. I had my usual problem with typos (why do I keep spelling "the" as "teh?") but I thought the puzzle was clever. It does seem like I had an extra word or a weird word in there that threw me off but for the life of me, I can't remember it.

I wish I was as clever as you, Randy.

I sucked but I thought it was a blast! Bring on part 11!

I enjoyed the puzzle. The clues, for the most part made sense after you got the answer!

Sure, Randy, why not challenge us with another one? It was fun.

Four against....
2000 for more puzzles like it....
Not too shabby....
The clues were excellent
the "mondegreens" were FUNNY
and challenging....

Why don't you do Part 2 before

I played conservatively, burning letters for safety- but kept almost all the points.

I commend Old Cougar for developing this challenging puzzle- when the going gets tough--- out comes the trusty York minty treat for comfort.
Mondegreen away! I'll get better with practice.

to O.C.

I'm anxiously awaiting Oog's upcoming puzzle. I LOVED his previous phonetic WP.

I really enjoyed your puzzle, and the clues made sense to me. For example, my first clue was: genteel 100 acre wood. I figured it would have something to do with Winnie-the-Pooh, and sure enough, it ended up having to do with that wonderful character, Tigger. I found the WP challenging, but that's good for my poodle ... er ... noodle Thanks for a lot of fun!

It wasn't a spelling error that bothered me, it was the clue that stated the character of Jose Jimenez "said" "Jose can you see." Surely he sang it rather than saying it--at least that's the way I remember it. I answered using the word "sang" (I had the "s" and "a" but not the "i" or "d"), and then couldn't figure out what was wrong with my answer until I had wasted several irrelevant letters. Maybe I'm the only one who did this, but it still seems to me that "sang" is a more accurate word than "said" in this instance.

Lane, the reference material I read used had "said" but of course, it should have been sang or I should have worded it differently. So sorry, Lane & anyone else that got nailed by that. I can't remember back that far, all that sticks in my mind is "My name is Jose Jimenez".

After reading this thread, I'm now having a "duh" moment.
It was challenging and fun!

Lane...I too thought at first
that the word was "sang', but
it wasn' I forgot it a
and moved on....

A little birdie PM'ed me & told me Jose never sang it, he said it No matter Lane, I'm still sorry, I was trying to avoid those pitfalls & messed up on that one. I'll reread carefully Part 2 to try to avoid any more. It's tough not using in/on, has/had, etc. in your puzzle.

He said it. I'm absolutely positive.
