If you solve mine, post the next one! Rhyming quartets are dandy. I'll start with an easy one.

Within the yellow were kindred souls
Alike in all ways save one
Focused intently on grandmother's goals
He went and missed all the fun!

Is it from Bendin In The Wind?  I remember in that episode Hermes didn't go, and Fry mentioned something about his Grandma's ashes.

Or is it Roswell That Ends Well?

I thought this was an easy one!

SoS has the episode right, but I was referring to a specific person.

Excellent thread idea! I got that first one, most excellent.

In the bowels deep below
Where rhymes ran free
Only this tiny instrument
Could help our heroes flee!

How is that a "tiny" instrument? It's relatively smaller than a number of other musical instruments, but I'm not so sure about it being tiny.

Created by MOS Technology,
Over one thousand years in the past.
Used every day for robopsychology,
For however much longer it lasts.

I felt "golden" would have really given it away, and compared to another instrument reference from that scene, the drums (they're sorta similar) it's relatively tiny.

I thought maybe you were hoping that "bowels" and "tiny" would make people think of "Parasites Lost" (plus there's another musical instrument in that episode, though it's not too tiny either, nor is it involved in the heroes' escaping anything).

Clear wrapping shimmering in the light
Delicious black cracker for deliverymen

Although he didn't give the exact answer, it's pretty obvious Xanfor and everyone else know it was the sandwich. Your go again, Xanfor!

I don't know if everyone actually grasped that it was the sandwich itself.  But Xanfor certainly won the answer through recursive logic.  I really like your thread though. WHO THE FUCK IS SINGING THIS THSHIT? It's a really neat game... and you're


What are those?  Rhymes?  Patterns? Shapes?Couplets?Limericks?

I can't remember anymore..... it's neat.... this is a thinking game of actual thinking instead of random guessing. Hmmm.  Let us not hesitate.

From these five little settings
(And five buttons to match),
Came the loss of some dressings,
And a hard-to-work catch.

Yeah. I'm sorry I keep criticizing the riddles, but that one made it seem like the answer was something to the effect of "the contents of the vending machine in the truck stop men's room."

Edit: Elcazar!

Alcazar.

This is a bad pattern I'm getting into.

No, it's not Alcazar. But Tedward has got me thinking that maybe it's a lousy riddle. hmpf
