Same here. I'm lost (and possibly a little lazy tonight).

Salty Hint
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Try Anagramming


Also make sure you are using the updated picture. It is a lot harder if you use the earlier version.

I must apologize for the One Word Wonder tonight. I uploaded the incorrect final image and hadn't really typed out a good solution description for the puzzle before I found out it was being used today. Honestly, I had gotten lazy on its execution as I submitted 18 or so puzzles and wasn't seeing much use. Then suddenly, WHAM! The last two days two of my weakest puzzles get used. *shrug*

SUPER SALTY
Procedure for hard one.

1) There are sets of anagrams in the puzzle
i.e. Dirty Room = Dormitory

2) Pick out all of the sets

3) One word will be left over.

Sorry Kurt. I hope you got help before now! But in case not -
Spoiler (click to reveal)
pick a phrase and anagram it. You'll find pairs.
SUPER SALTY
Spoiler (click to reveal)
one of the phrases or words won't have an anagram and that will be your answer

You need the type of fish. It is one of the answers on the hyper-cross.

Yeah, I can't say I'm a fan of puzzles where I do all the letter/clue based legwork but am completely halted because some image the puzzle crafter must have expected was common knowledge, isn't.

Really, including some hint to get people started if they didn't know who that image is woulda been real nice. These puzzles should be more based on puzzle ability, not picture identification.

I'm stuck.

Ok...finally got the hard one...thanks for the help!

I agree with the comment about pics in puzzles...that's a search that I went a bunch of directions with. However, it's certainly not the worst I've seen when it comes to pic searching and I'm a big fan of the theme.

Well, lots of google image search and wikipedia biography helped me. I still hated this puzzle, though. It's about 10% solving the 'puzzle' (turning the clues into the phrases and extracting the major hint contained therein) and 90% knowing or being able to snipe-hunt something the vast majority of people won't know as common knowledge.

Easy puzzle -
Again, a fatal error. As stated in the comments, #3 would be better as "Casper Ghost Meets Wendy" or "Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome"

Hard puzzle - ow, my brain hurts! Small clues, but no easy path on this one!

Fruit = Cool! I do like it!

Not sure if this helps but...

The top line of the grid says "To solve the puzzle you" backwards.


Trying to find where it picks up.

Argh...the easy one is annoying me...I know I'm missing something, but none of the usual methods is working for me and people are saying that multiple posters are broken now? shake

EDIT: Ack...went to try the hard puzzle, since sometimes it kick starts the neurons enough to get the easy. OMFG. I may not be getting either of these tonight. It looks like red herrings all over.

Just the one, as far as I can tell. Although #2 is perhaps a little dodgy in that you need to ignore the "Looney Tunes" part of it.

I just got it. That's horrible. #2 is dodgy at best due to the top "Looney Tunes" and #3 is downright wrong. shake
