I really enjoyed today's WP - where do you get them from, they are so funny!

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed! The curses themselves were all broadcast on the Tonight Show, and can be found on various websites, as a few players have discovered. The three-worded clues are my writing. I love these silly old jokes. They still make me laugh after all these years.

Any Johnny Carson [Carnac] fans would love these puzzles.

For those who didn't see Carnac on the Tonight Show- there are several websites and You Tube videos to watch.

I don't know if any comedian does anything similar to Carnac. Does anyone know?

Thanks, Ron, for another fun Carnac WP! I've really learned a lot about Carnac since you've been doing these and have enjoyed every minute!

He had a thing for camels and yaks, didn't he.

For those who never saw Johnny Carson do Carnac, he had a delivery that was just perfect. When I read this, I imagine him saying these lines and that makes it even better.

Good puzzle - I close my eyes and I can see Johnny sitting at his desk with that silly turban on and holding the envelope to his forehead. I even hear his voice reading the answers after I fumble my way through.

Good Job - it must be nice to know that you won't see any gripes about how "googlable" they might have been with the clever clues - I know I get sick of seeing those comments about "googleability" - - again - good job - keep it up!
