Question

This is a variation on the earlier Rhyme Time puzzles created by Brandonb. This time each clue has (at least) two answers. The spelling of the rhyming words can be different but they should have the same number of syllables (and of course rhyme).

Example: watery flyer = wet jet / rain plane

1. monkey band

2. superlative dog

3. unemployed tunneler

4. upright support spirit

5. invertebrate virus

6. unsuccessful alcohol

7. dirty finger

8. reduce friction on pipe loop

9. computer covered in thick oil

10. untrue pastry

11. conceited storm

12. beast follicles

13. clown’s irons

14. lower maw

15. avian utterance

merrier terrier / better setter

That is not exactly what I was thinking for the first half but I've got to give you credit. I was thinking:

hairier terrier

Yay! I thought "greasy PC" was particularly clever on your part!

#14: south mouth?

Now I'm leaving work, so I have to stop playing with puzzles...hopefully some will be left by the time I can get back to a computer! Good luck everyone!

5. Slug Bug

15. Owl Howl

5 correct for the first answer. For 15 this is good but not what I had in mind. Number 15 is why I said at least 2 answers each.

1. Baboon Platoon?

3. Poorer Borer?

8. Lube Tube

1. Not quite. Yours is sort of an approximate rhyme. I was thinking of a different definition of "band".

3. Ha, I knew you guys would not disappoint me in coming up with new unexpected answers but that is not what I was thinking.

8. Right, but what is the second answer?

3. unemployed tunneler = dole mole (duhfersure)

4. upright support spirit = pole soul / post ghost (duhfersure)

9. computer covered in thick oil = greasy PC (duhfersure)

10. untrue pastry = lie pie (duhfersure) / fake cake (=W=)

11. conceited storm = vain rain (benmc5)

12. beast follicles = bear hair (duhfersure)
