Same Old, Same Old

Question

Posted · Report post

Inquire, it's likely that this you will hear

She's not the one, so the other, my dear.

Whenever opportunity presents you might say

Take it from me, it's not better this way.

Announced like a pastimes appropriate host

It's the smallest that often bugs you the most.

Purposely left hanging, though still not a waste

Those fresh too remark, all in good taste.

On the surface there's not much for which to see

When landing the big roll in this great tragedy.

From each of the five you must now find one

Still something's to do, before you are done.

Hi pg.....:D

Hey back at you EDM - thanks for starting this one off - not what I have in mind for that one though.

(I'm sure I already responded but maybe it didnt take or it's elsewhere or posted in the wrong place. Sorry for the delay, EDM, whatever happened)

There are five mini-riddles (one per couplet) each with a one word answer and then the five answers are further involved in a puzzle to find the final answer. Each couplet might contain any numerous kinds of plays on words like homophones, puns, double entendres, etc. (reading them very literally can be helpful). Ultimately though, I would call them what am I's. Here are a couple of links to similar ones from before:

PS - your second guess for the third couplet is on track...

Hey Wilson - Right on with your logic and in fact, your answer fits the clue better than mine. I was thinking more general.

Mite?

a wee bit bigger

and I'm still torn over your answer for the forth couplet but cant say too much as it could effect the puzzle with the five answer words in the end.

in fact, I'd say you deserve a snack. You nailed the fourth one with HERBS (will elaborate on my shaggy issues with your first guess on this one when solved). Right on track for the third just need to justify the first half for which you are at a disadvantage, I think. Also some good stuff on the fifth. The first two I think are the hardest and require a different tactic than normal.

Hey Jkb - see where you're coming from in all the above - very clever but not those.

Very nice Wilson, you crushed 3. I was afraid someone would make your guess for 2. which makes a lot of sense but won't help you in the end game. Not it for 1.
