Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 5, Day 6

Post by DadofTwins »

*Shakes fist at sky*

SHORTZ!!!!


Ahem.

Yesterday I was listening to the podcast of the Weekend Edition Sunday Puzzle and putting the finishing touches on a couple of categories for Round 6. One of them, which I've been working on for six months, was "Celebrity Palindromes." It was going to be basically free points -- I create a palindrome and you tell me the celebrity whose name would complete it.

Well.

Yesterday, SHORTZ!!! announces that for the next two weeks, his puzzle is going to be having readers create, you guessed it (or heard it on the radio), celebrity palindromes. The winner will be the person who comes up with the best one.

So since somebody else is already doing the category in another format, the SHC version will have to wait.

Feel free to shake your fist at the sky now.

When you're done, scroll down and begin R5D6.
