Wonderful WP - thought I was back in high school English there for a few minutes - great choices. Thanks

Between my husband and I we have about 40 years of education and had to use a dictionary to figure out which foot was who. Excellent, mind bending puzzle. Agree with Slicko, took me back!

All those years of Greek and Latin still were not enough to beat slicko....

Tell me about it.

I think I just had a high school English flashback.

It was fun and totally doable once I figured out the heck what to do.

Clues weren't much help to me but the phrases are well known that it was easy to figure out the phrases without knowing what the heck I was doing! Interesting puzzle and I really enjoyed it. Well done!

I was worried that it might come off a little "scholarly" - but I figured you would all google "scansion" if you didn't remember what that was, and then google the clues

Thanks to those of you who made it past the English lesson and wrote such positive comments afterward! And a big thanks to those of you who hated it and chose not to say anything!!

I saved a copy as a test for my students in the fall, after our unit on scansion of course!

Hey, it's good to throw a little "scholarliness" into the mix from time to time.
Enjoyed it.

All my days and nights of studying finally paid off. All kidding aside, good puzzle. BTW was senator Gramm talking about me the other day.

Excellent WP, Suzer! I enjoyed this puzzle even if I'll be lucky to keep my Top 100 standing.

There once was a Sloofuser named Dodd
Who found today's puzzle quite odd.
The letters got used,
His score got abused,
'Cause his poetry knowledge was flawed.

I hear ya, Rev.

Nice puzzle, but the clues were wasted on me. I managed to muddle through, and enjoyed it just the same. Thanks.

I dictionaried "scansion" and it didn't help. And I'm still wondering what the part of the pregnancy in which the toes develop had to do with any of the puzzles.

I got the concept, but two of the quotes I didn't have the pleasure of hearing loss. The rest was a lovely stroll down memory lane. Well done, nice research into which quote fit which measure.

That's about as good as it gets for all kinds of reasons.

I wikie'd scansion - took me back years LOL - the clues didn't really help me figure out the puzzles, but at least I knew what I was working on

Nice job!

Thanks Sploofernatural. Do you think someone could do that for all the WPs?

The culture we can get from being a Sploofaholic.
The clues didn't help me much, but by searching scansions beforehand, I wasn't too confused about what to expect.

A diploma to Suzer for her scholarly endeavor.

Smoke only said she missed the List
So she could see her name in bliss
Old Smokie knew she was number two
just wanted to flaunt it - for me and you
