Bon & Mal's Weekly Sunday Puzzle Page

This puzzle is brought to you by the OAS - Orthopedic Appliance Salesmen.

Bonnie has once again whipped up one of her fine confections for your delectation - but first, the answer to last week's 'Rungs' -

SAIL

MAIL

MALL

MALE

MILE

MITE

KITE

As we have stated previously, there are alternate words that can be used to provide the progression, so as long as the chain of words is of the same length, you can be confident in having solved the puzzle.

Onward to today's 'Rungs' -

MASH

_ _ _ _

_ _ _ _

_ _ _ _

_ _ _ _

_ _ _ _

_ _ _ _

PULP

Bonnie wishes you to know that she could have shortened the list if she had included 'pule' as one of the words, but she preferred to avoid using a less than common word.

And, for kids who might like to try 'Rungs', she has created these three smaller versions -

HEAD                    PATH                    SAME

_ _ _ _                 _ _ _ _                _ _ _ _

_ _ _ _                 _ _ _ _                _ _ _ _

FEET                     LANE                     LIKE

Of course, if you like, you may do these also.

This is a joke especially for Celeste, because we suspect it's one she will enjoy.

A husband and his wife were accustomed to going to Church each Sunday, but as the man had a bad habit of falling asleep during the service, his wife decided to bring a knitting needle with her to prod him awake.

Sure enough, the man began to nod off, and his wife poked him just as the priest asked "Who is our Lord and Savior?" The man, startled by the sudden pain, jumped up and exclaimed "Jesus Christ!" The priest complimented him for being so enthusiastic as the man sat down, feeling sheepish. As the priest droned on, the man drifted toward sleep again, and his wife stuck him once more just as the priest asked "Who created Heaven and Earth?" Again the man leapt to his feet and yelled "Good God!" The priest again voiced his approval and the man reclaimed his seat.

Lulled anew by the soothing tone of the priest's voice, the man fell asleep for a third time. His wife, becoming irritated, gave him a swift, sharp jab as the priest asked "What did Eve say to Adam after the birth of their second child?" The man rose to his feet with alacrity and shouted "IF YOU POKE ME WITH THAT THING ONE MORE TIME, I'M GOING TO BREAK IT IN HALF!"

Peace.
