Week 11 Results

Time to stop being so cryptic and finally post the answers you’ve been waiting for.

Nobody hapunned upon the solution to 1c without hints, but one of you did solve it without the aid of a Sneak-a-Peek. Congrats to Kelly!

I did enjoy some of the alternative answers submitted in the box tracers that described personalities of politicians, but they did not count nor were they this week’s bonus. To find out what that is, see this week’s answer below. Hope you enjoyed the terrible (wonderful!) puns.

    Yet again, I forgot to come back to these and look at the sheet one last time. All I had were those three damned Box Tracers. Sigh…

    all letters moved one position to the right, now solve . . . geez, I was thinking right to left, but not one letter at a time! and as far as the bonus question, never would have figured that out.

    Totally went down the wrong path. Gumby’s dog is named Nopey, and he says “Nope” to everything, so I figured that was the answer to the first question.

    For the Ladder, I got
    HOME
    TOME
    TONE
    LONE
    LANE
    LAND

    And the leaders that were not US Presidents.
    I kept seeing “Vaclav Havel” in the Cleveland box, but it didn’t fit.
    So sad that “Nan Redneck” is not a real name.
