Question

Could be the perfect storm

But no, not either or.

And for not telling the truth

I've plead the fifth before.

'Cause in your local armory

You might swap me in kind,

For this life line's no aid;

Is another way to find.

A forceful piece that's constant

Carved a slice of special cake.

Put it all together and

Some sense of this you'll make.

That's hilarious that you think I might laugh (smiling only). Not nursery but see where you're coming from. This one's a little different than my previous *Quickie* pows. Not breaking down the answer into letters per se but more like *POW, my second riddle* (using hole words for the most part).

easter

eli

cause in your local armory

your local cause armory

your moral, moral cause,

lifeline's no aid -aid ='s

=is

in using the *in* but not exactly how it is intended to be used.

Upon review, wanted to add that chicory also got a key concept in word #4 but the answer is still not is...

'Cause in -> causing?

I had been speculating "store" (armory used for nat'l guard storage) since there is a clothing line ... but doesn't seem like something our PG would do (since it's not the name of the designer). Still stuck.

lifeline's no aid

no aid, leaves just:

lifeline

And in "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" a lifeline is another way you find the answer?

Nice reasoning, but not where I'm coming from on this one.

you are onto something with that *lifeline*

Using the connection of the words you established may help as well.

And if that doesnt do it, am thinking about another "spark" as well.

Well hello John_B and welcome. If you care to look, the last recap was on post #97. Have established the common thread for each of the five words, too, somewhere since then. If instead you just want to plug thru by your lonesome...

1. Easter is correct.

2. Lie is right, different fifth needed.

4. concept of lifeline is correct, need a different one, and concept of no aid is correct as well.

5. doesnt work with 4. but 3. and 4. kinda do.

palm- alm = p,

for the lifeline clue, but how that could connect to the "I want to be a millionaire" type lifeline I can't guess. Is there a special phone for emergency calls, ship to shore or sos radio ?

no connection with palm or palm reading in this word. solely the other one that tiger_lilly111 mentions in post #15 re the gameshow.
