Coma Worthy

Question

A little thematic riddling to ease your mid-week doldrums.

1. Pardon me, please. I'm roasted.

2. Floury, waxy, squished till I've popped.

3. You could say I'm amazing, Colonel.

4. Shove it. (ahem)

5. Put me in a boat & I'll paint the whole thing.

6. Jack & spice & a nerdy number make me a little tart.

Havent ever done a TL riddle before, and the style is obvious, so DD, could you explain how you got those? Thanks! :thanks:

Mine vary (except in quality - they don't get above mediocre).

For this one, all 6 follow a related theme - keywords & a little word-play to get the intended answers. :)

Oh, & if you discover the theme, it should be pretty easy. ;)

A Sweet potato or maybe Peas, but not sure.

How have you been TL?

You may be on the right track there, but neither of those is right.

(& been doing pretty good mostly, how about you?)

Now I'm thinking about Christmas......... :mellow:

2. Cranberry sauce?

6. Pie? (pi, lol)

No the 1st, & in the neighborhood for 6.

too early for that kind of talk!

:blink:

2. Green beans?

early for Santa and his reindeer!

:P

If that's what you do to that vegetable, (& I mean this in the nicest possible way) you should be shot. You have to play nicely, treat them like delicate flowers, otherwise you end up with gross mush. :unsure:

And yes, it is. (It's my riddle, so there's no use arguing.) ;):P

Ohhhhhhh, I never knew that green beans were that sacred! Wow! ^_^

Okay, fine, but I'm going to go enjoy some

Christmas songs because I'm strange like that

But please don't shoot me. I'm innocent because I've never treated Mr. Green Bean that way.

Oh, and sorry for not hiding the Christmas thing, I just realized that probably gave riddle away.

:duh::blush:

Sacred, no. Just not one of my favorite vegetables, but if you mistreat them I WILL tell you that you murdered them and now they're useless.

- after all, you aren't right.

:ph34r:

(& I'm lazy & don't care ... this is supposed to be a quick one anyway!) ;)

Got it with the last one there!

2. Mashed Potatoes

3. Corn

6. Pumpkin Pie

Welcome to the Den ... hmm, should I call you LSP, spacey, princess ... (You've given us too many possibilities here.) ;) Anyhow, welcome & enjoy!

You do, indeed, have the rest of the meal there.

Excuses & credits will have to wait till morning-ish (PST), till then night y'all. :)

Thanksgiving Dinner (U.S.) - resulting in a "food coma"

1. Pardon me, please. I'm roasted.

2. Floury, waxy, squished till I've popped.

3. You could say I'm amazing, Colonel.

4. Shove it. (ahem)

5. Put me in a boat & I'll paint the whole thing.

6. Jack & spice & a nerdy number make me a little tart.

1. Turkey - pardoned yearly by the U.S. President, usually baked/roasted or deep fried Thalia

2. Mashed Potatoes - floury &/or waxy types of potatoes, cooking causes the starch granules to swell & release amylose, mashing damages the granules more (too much = gluey potatoes, eew!) LumpySpacePrincess

3. Corn - aka maize, & kernels are the form of the edible portion (Yes, this is a lousy POW. I'm not PG.) LumpySpacePrincess

4. Stuffing (aka dressing, if it wasn't cooked in the bird) - A turkey is stuffed from the "aft" end DudleyDude

5. Gravy - 'gravy boat' used to serve, some people put gravy on everything on their Thanksgiving plate DudleyDude

6. Pumpkin Pie - jack-o-lantern (pumpkin), with spices (& cream & eggs) + pi, which can be served as a tart Plainglazed
