French... I had a feeling. Any tips for non-French speakers? I think I've got an appropriately French sounding word (words?) but have no idea how it's actually spelled to get a translation (is a translation necessary?).

No translation needed. The word is occassionally used in English speaking.

The left side should be fairly self-explanatory. On the right, that's the newest Nintendo (I think) game. Its name is on the box, right there in the picture.

Depending on your definition, occasionally may be a bit of an overstatement (that and maybe I'm not well read enough to get it). I got the answer very early, but had no idea (let alone how to spell it properly).

If it wasn't for someone directly defining the word in the Tanga blog, I'd still be looking. And even Googling a direct quote on that only came up with ONE result.
Super easy puzzle, but super obscure answer tonight.

And if you aren't familiar with it, it's pronounced "We" as in "We the people"

Personally, I like the puzzle.
The right side had me perplexed due to me not being up to date with 21st century gadgets; I don't even have a cell phone for crying out loud.
Once I found appropriate help on the right side (weeeee!), it only took a couple minutes for my brain to put the two together because for the left half...
I wasn't off at all.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

Would someone tell me what the joke is here. I know the first word is ON. The second is a Wii (Wee).

What am I missing. Is this the most obscure word on earth? How do you even begin to find a word by its phonetic pronunciation?

Come on puzzlemakers... isn't this a bit obscure?

I thought it was a cute puzzle, but I had to do a lil search for the answer on google.

Not that it was hard. Just typed what I saw as a word and 3rd result showed me the right spelling.

You're very much on the right track.

Edit: Had more of a response, but was afraid it was quite salty, so sent it to your Geekmail instead.

Didn't like this one. Took me far too long to figure out (with a LOT of salt) for those still having trouble:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Word History: Were they alive today, users of Classical Latin might be surprised to find that centuries later a phrase of theirs still survives, although as a single word. The phrase mihi in odiō est (literally translated as "to me in a condition of dislike or hatred is"), meaning "I hate or dislike," gave rise to the Vulgar Latin verb *inodiāre, "to make odious," the source of the Old French verb ennuyer or anoier, "to annoy, bore." This was borrowed into English by around 1275 as anoien, our annoy. From the Old French verb a noun meaning "worry, boredom" was derived, which became xxxx in modern French. This noun, with the sense "boredom," was borrowed into English in the 18th century, perhaps filling a need in polite, cultivated society.

Yeah, I figured that out. What's got me is the pie. is it the type of pie I'm looking for? If so, I'm so very close to the answer and yet to far away since, when I cut out all the doubles, I still can't get the right answer.

OK, wow, y'all rock. Not more than 2 minutes went by before I got two GMs on the "Pie" thing. I realized that the Pie could be another answer I already had, and it turned out I did. So I now have no clue what the heck the thing in the upper right-hand corner is (I've figured everything else out). Any help other than...
