Ok, here we go, have fun everyone!

Puzzle 141

Here are the rules:

1. You may only guess one letter at a time.

2. After you have guessed a letter, you must wait for another player to guess a letter before you can go again.

3. The host of the game responding to a guess does not count as a turn. Should you choose a letter, then receive a response from the member host, you must wait for the next member to guess a letter.

4. One point will be awarded for each correct letter, 2 points for vowels.

5. Only six misses are allowed in the game.

6. If you wish to guess the phrase, send it to me via Pet Talk personal email. [This is accessible via the 'PM' or 'Profile' buttons on any of my posts.]
DO NOT post it on the forum If you wish to guess a letter, post it on the forum.

7. You must have submitted a correct letter to submit your solution. Unlike letters, if you submit a wrong solution, you are disqualified from continuing in that puzzle.

8. The player who correctly guesses the phrase wins the game. If no one has guessed it correctly after six misses, then the player with the most points wins the game.

And here is what you win...you get to create the next puzzle. (Should you win the game, and do not care to host the next puzzle, you may pass your puzzle play to the member with the next highest points)

Here's the puzzle:

----'- --- ----- ----- - -------- --------- ~ --- ---- ---- --- ---.
------ --- ---- -----, ------------ ---- --------- -- -------------, --- -----
-- --- -- ------ -----; ----- --- --- - ----.
---- ---- ----- ----- -------- -- -- ----?

~------- ---- ---- ----- -- ---- -------

Here's the puzzle:

That's the thing about a Labrador Retriever ~
you were born for fun.
Seldom was your loopy, freewheeling mind cluttered by contemplation, and never at all by somber worry; every day was a romp.
What else could there possibly be to life?

Guess submitted

05-01-2002, 03:30 PM
I sent a guess too!:D

05-01-2002, 03:35 PM
Both guesses were correct, but I got AmberLee's first and she has said she would like to host the next puzzle! Congrats!

I don't know if anyone has ever read anything by Carl Hiaasen, but he is soooo funny! he absolutly HATES developers in Florida and his characters doing crazy things to stop them from tearing apart swamps for golf coures and stuff. Sick Puppy is about an eco-terrorist who "punishes" people for being litter bugs and he ends up kidnapping this guy's dog because he doesn't feel the dog is treated fairly. The guy's wife demands to be kidnapped too...anyway, it is really funny (although he uses HORRIBLE language and there is some other bizarre things..I would recommned it for mature audiences :) )

Congats! Doesn't matter cuz I hosted last so it is your turn. I hope it will be a good one.;) I can't wait. Any idea when it might be up?

Congrats again!!!!!!!!!!!:D ;) :p :)

05-01-2002, 05:24 PM
I'll try to get one up tonight, but it might not get up til tomorrow. I'll see what I can do...
