Headline Puns

IMG_20140809_052541_839

Today’s puzzle pokes fun at the newspaper headline writers who didn’t realize that they had just selected a headline that could be interpreted in more than one way.  Check out the highlighted words in the above grid.

  • FARMER BILL DIES IN HOUSE
  • KIDS MAKE TASTY TREATS
  • RED TAPE HOLDS UP BRIDGE
  • IRAQI HEADS BOUGHT ARMS
  • COPS HELP DOG BITE VICTIM

You may have to read the headlines more than one time to find the humor.

The above puzzle was published in the Sunday New York Times.  The constructor was Seth A. Abel.  The title of the puzzle was ‘Headlines That Make You Go “Huh?”‘.

The Art Of The Deal

IMG_20140801_210452_774

Today we once again are reviewing a puzzle by Elizabeth C. Gorski.  Not sure what the C represents, perhaps “Constructor”?

The above puzzle was published in the New York Times Sunday edition, edited by Will Shortz.  The puzzle makes very clever use of the cards that make up a Royal Flush and a Straight Flush.  As the puzzle indicates, these are the top poker hands.

Take a few minutes to marvel at how the constructor forms the words around the symbols.  Especially, the center of the grid where you see 5 HEARTS.   Here are the words …

BAD HEART, TAKE HEART, THE ARTS, HEART RATE, and HEARTIER.

Years ago, you would never see symbols in a puzzle.  Not sure about you, but every now and then, it’s fun to see a puzzle designed like this.

Until next time …

Double Letter Fun

IMG_20140724_071258_508

The title of this amazing puzzle was ‘This’ll Only Hurt A Bit”.  It was a collaborative effort between Nancy Salomon and Bob Peoples.

The puzzle appeared in the Sunday New York Times edited by Will Shortz.

The title is a clue to the solver.  The puzzle contains the small word OW within certain grid squares.  OW is appropriate when thinking of Crossword Puns.

If you look at the highlighted ANSWERS above you will see how the constructors were able to form words UP and DOWN using the two-letter OW word.

Study the grid and enjoy the talents of Nancy and Bob!

Very Cool Grid Design

IMG_20140722_211922_942

The above puzzle called “Positional Play” was constructed by David J. Kahn and appeared in the New York Times Sunday newspaper.

If you study the highlighted words, I think you will be able to see the theme pretty quickly – especially if you are a baseball fan.

The THEME words are strategically placed to imitate the defensive positions of a baseball team (LEFT, CENTER, RIGHT, THIRD, SHORT, SECOND, FIRST, PITCHER, and CATCHER.  In addition, the constructor has some other THEME words specifically related to baseball.

All in all, this puzzle was a HOME RUN.  I really enjoyed solving it.
