Report One, Two, Red, Blue in New Word Riddles Posted April 27, 2011 I was just about to post this, when I saw Williebear had just posted it and you denied it as the solution. Grouper (Red Grouper, White Grouper, and Blue Grouper)??? As to the riddle 'style', am I correct in...The clue is a 'cryptic crossword'-like clue, with the word "off" hinting that the other letters are "out of place", i.e., an anagram? E.g., "Turn keys to shear" comprises the letters for oyster (as it does shark, ray, skate and a few other fishes) That's what I was working on, too ("southern Hake" was the closest I could get. "turn" could also imply an anagram. Sorry, no to #6. Try 1980's. are sound-outs.
