Question

Posted · Report post

Hogwash, so perhaps not
Left the pub with a prying concern
Flustered and showed the way out
"Cut cut! From the old car scene"
Deliberately not vixen-like
Act out when gone off track
Piss off a little
Dry drinks don't exist
Slap out of order
Not a current measure of riducule


Each line describes with synonyms/short definitions, two different words and some kind of direction that one of the words should be subtracted from the other. The answer then remains with each of the ten fitting a general theme hinted at in the title. Like these: Somethings Fishy Here Parts Is Parts

Thanks you two for knocking this one out. I just couldn't let it go unsolved thus the previous bump. Knew you guys would bail me out.

 

Don't know how to best use the Mark Solved feature with these multi-answer puzzles so have unabashedly linked here...

Okay, I've been stuck for a while but then I realized I may be way over-thinking some of these:

4. T-bird-T=bird

8. martini-I=martin

The last line makes me think something with 'amp'...but maybe that's just me ;P

hey Y-san, dont think you're necessarily overthinking these. they are tough, imo. you got 8. save for a minor grammatical form issue. looking for another for 4. made a subtle edit to that one and will also say the last word doesnt help other than the read of the clue. and as DD elaborated, your hunch was correct. well done - thanks you two.

hello rsn - long time no riddle with!  have whined about this already but loosing my job and subsequently starting a business has greatly crimped my brainden time.  still check in at least daily but usually just briefly and often without even signing in.  also had to re-solve my own puzzle as it had been so long since last responses.  these are certainly tough as evidenced by the ones solved.  can see were you're coming from and could possibly qualify for an alternate answer but yeah, had a different train of thought.  may have to come up with hints (other than the one i just..) or edits or altogether alternate clues.  hope to see you soon

hey Wilson - that's the second vote on your first response above so a viable alternative for sure but still had something different in mind (as hinted at in last response). And as for your second - certainly not beyond me to throw in a homophone nor switch up the form but all of these are indeed a - b = answer within theme. Here's an alternate clue for that one - Small but not wee

Deliberately not vixen-like: sternly - sly = tern

yeah, no repeats this time but you're so close to mine, say half-right?

Well this one may have remained unfinished for good reason. Haven't had the time of late to compose anything new. So in the meantime and on the outside chance there could be any interest in finishing this one, have added rewritten lines for the four yet to be solved. Spoilered for any who don't want a second clue.

"Cut! Take it from the old car scene"

- or - Cut off by that old heap

Deliberately not vixen-like - or - A leisurely albeit crafty withdrawal

Act out when gone off track - or - No heroic achievement has gone astray

Piss off a little - or - Small but not wee
