Enough of your itchy son's molehill and tat!

Of Google tables and this and that.

Enough softballs from the likes of me;

The name of this game is methodology.

Enough softballs sent to you,

Though in this rhyme you will find a clue (or two).

You can call me a riddliculous jerk,

But all I ask from you is “work.”

From a seasonal put down of a maternal dame:

the woe of a crippled Roi’s dental pain . . .

A bit of a prep pertaining to

an empiricist of Alba’s era (and the agent too).

Good luck.

Patrick Roi perhaps? I would guess a hockey puck to be the cause of his toothache. But he's a goalie, so the mask would prevent that, so maybe a fist or two?

This here is a nice piece of riddle.

Thanks grayven.

Patrick roi . . . No. Look up meaning of Roi, go for a name. That part is just a clue (though it will easily lead to the riddliculous answer if if you can deconstruct it).

Louis XIV suffered from just about every ailment known to man. Syphilis, gangrene, tapeworm, gout - you name it, he had it. I'd wager chronic toothache was among his many afflictions...

Maybe a math answer?

Force x time

That got anything to do with it?

I got that and...

Apparently, Alba is the name of that rabbit that glows bright green under UV rays.

Very clever, hints that get bogged down in pop culture when you google them. Thanks for nuttin' :P

From a seasonal put down of a maternal dame:

"Emperor" Napoleon was exiled to the island of Elba...maybe that has something to do with it since roi is French for King...

Can't think of too many put downs that are warm and springlike... but I've been wrong before. Several times on BD just today in fact!

Yes on Scotland.

Louis . . . no, but right track.

Nothing math. All English and literature related.

Can be straight relation as in:

"Jetson head folliage" = George Bush

or with a phonetic twist, as in:

"single soldier house for a sweet home without an Al" = barrack abama (Obama)

This should ease it up.

That got anything to do with it?

Work = Force x Distance.

;)

Force x Time is impulse, imparting change in momentum.

Wow!

I figured if you guys (and girls) could decipher combo meal, no problem. I guess there’re more mathheads than linguists here. Ok, maybe some clarification is in order:

The intro is nothing to the riddle, it’s just a quip about hopping back and forth from periodic table to math table figuring out Yor-ichi-san’s (your itchy son) combo meals, and about how mild and easily slain my first riddles were. My original deconstruction, though tagged on first reply, is an example of what’s required. (Cartesian infinitive = to be)

Main riddle is looking for a work of literature: the title can be phonetically reconstructed from clues in section set off by asterisks. Just prior to, are clues as to author, basic plot, main character: “A seasonal put down . . .”

Example of method for deciphering: “An article for climactic phenomena pertaining to conflict”

An article (the) climactic phenomena (winds) pertaining to (of) conflict (war)

Book: The Winds of War

Each clue does not neccessarily equate to a single word. It could be a phonetic part. Watch for sequence.

Easy . . . right?

[spoiler='male with skin condition, LOL!

Just phonetic wordplay, though Yor revealed his gender through his college-prank anechdote.']Think about the term "Roi" (English?)

Perhaps it's not the roi that's crippled : )

Any luck here?

a bit of a prep means small preposition like to, or of?

Seasonal: winter?

Maternal dame: mother, birth

Winter mother? Winterborn?

era = age?

Hey, I thought everyone gave up on my monstrous creation! : )

Winter: wrong one ahab.

Mother: shorten it

age: correct

to or of: of is correct (means pertain to)

For Title you have so far: of Hume age

Nicely done

Good luck.

If the agent is Mr. James Bond, then that would make the title "Of Human Bondage" making the author William Sommerset Maughham. The Season would be Summer, obviously. Still working out the details though.

Very nice riddle! I tend to prefer these of the "math-free" variety. My math skills are well beyond rusty.

Graven, outstanding! I was down thinking it was too over the top. Ahab helped, but you nailed it.

the sad adventures of Philip Carey (I erred thinking that dental caries could be singular)

Nicely done.
