As the deadline drew near I was like, “OMG, what happened to one of our puzzle VIPs? May he R.I.P.?” But all is well. Our OG puzzler was just sent into a WTF spiral and needed a little CPR (challenging puzzle reassurance). We’re monitoring his BP, have him hooked up to an IV, and he’ll soon be enjoying a little QT at the EBDBBnB.

Okay. So it was definitely hard this week. I was more liberal with the scoring since multiple answers could work for the given clue.

Props to Tom, who came up with the answer that works for the two movies I had in mind for #4 on Movie Mash: “Dancing Dirty Dances with Wolves”. There were many variations I allowed here and for the #2 and #3.

Other answers that worked instead of Billie Holiday were Billy Idol (idle) and Billy Sunday.

My absolute favorite answer of the week, which I like better than mine and kept me giggling for awhile belongs to Matthew Gilman. For “Bee’s Behind” in Rhyme time Matthew answered “Honeymaker Moneymaker”.

We’re going to turn up the difficulty just a titch this week (I think).  This week’s puzzle is a mish-mash. I have created a PDF that you should be able to type your answers right into. Otherwise, feel free to send me an email with the answers typed in or a scan. There are 25 points possible (it’s on two pages, don’t miss that second one). Remember, if you have a bonus answer, label it as such. Puzzles are due Sunday at 9 p.m. CST.
