This was obscure with clues that "roughly" fit, where some of the answers are still debated. Comparing notes might help, so..

Super Mega Super Spoiler:

#1 (president=w + immitations= fakes)= Fawkes
#2 (big shirt=XL + begging of petticoat= ???)= Xlorp
#3 (invented the internet=Gore + last letter=Z)= Gozer
#4 ($100 bill=Benjamin Franklin + 10=X)= benjaminx
#5 (Swamp=bog + study= den)= Bogden
#6 (20th on 11/1/06)= theokester
#7 (part of opera= overture>over antonym= under)= underture
#8 (what am i= puzzlemaker > post with "puzzlemaker"= #63= xlorp
#9 (tag+ uu+ why)= whutaguy



I have seen several explanations that stretch to justify other answers for some of these, but this gave the right answer.


Half-day Fridays are nice.


Your #6 is wrong. Yes, it gives the right answer, but it's wrong. Trust me.

Does anyone else find it odd that while all of the clue answers appear in the 11/1 Tanga Puzzle Blog, five of them DO NOT appear in the 11/2 Tanga Puzzle Blog which actually deals with the puzzle in question? I guess five people have no idea that they've been used!!!


Thanks bbrewer for keeping my head from exploding into a million pieces!!!

Update: I found 6--I was going by the wrong "clue" for 6 that someone else provided, but unless I missed them, 3, 4, 5, & 9 are still MIA. And they don't show up on this thread either

As has been pointed out, my #6 was incorrect; however, using it as the answer to the clue would lead one to the correct solution because
Spoiler (click to reveal)
"H" is the second letter.


BTW, #8, as I had it, was also incorrect (the user changed names); but just like before, it still leads to the solution for the puzzle.

Now that we've pointed out what was incorrect, how about some idea of what is correct?

Why would someone change names to screw everybody else up? That sucks!

I'm pretty sure I mulched quite a few of these. Not a botanical sort of person and the one with the bird picture is baffling me. I think I've also forced the lye into a place it dosen't go.

Ok Ms. Smarty Pants Kanobi, then I guess you're the one to ask:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
what in the world did you get to go with the crow and the swear? We deduced all the others and got the answer but got stuck on that one...

It took you 1 hour, 7 minutes and 28 seconds.

OK, I have the flower names, so what do I do with them? The clue at the bottom makes no sense to me.

I also understand that the bottom line tells me to

For Isaac, Cindy and Barak -

I'm assuming you have your bouquet.

Mr. Weissblum says to

Spoiler (click to reveal)
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ-IZE your bouquet. Get it?


Then, he says:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
24 = WORD 2, LETTER 4. Get it? Makes more sense after the ABCD...-IZING.


Finally, he gives you seven numbers.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Following the previous spoiler, 26 = WORD 2, LETTER 6 and so on.


Now run off and finish the puzzle!

Ooh, so close.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The "be without" part is a homonym of what people complain about in Settlers all the time. Lye-____.


Just in case:

It's also the name of a fancy color. Violet-ish.

Argh! I got it right before Richard spelled it out for me.

I'm too tired to think straight.
