Riddle Me This


The Riddler

I, for one, don't feel particularly led-on. I was more interested in 'Which player spreads both butter and his wings, yet remains ocean-bound?' rather than if such player was in discussions with the MFC. In fact, the Riddler never said a single word in that regard. Only that x 'is perhaps the key to the future of the Melbourne Demons'.

The Riddler had someone in mind - and that was all that was of interest to me. If he/she just strung some random words together, then we would have been led on. And if so, I would find that highly amusing. In fact,

How do you know the Riddler had someone in mind and it wasn't just a troll sending you all on a wild goose chase?

We have had zero contact from him since the thread started.

That's what I said - if that were the case I would find it even more amusing. Have you ever chased a goose? I have found it to be spiritually rewarding

Mono did you prefer King Corkey or Uncle Norman as host? By the way I still think it a scandal that Professor Ratbaggy was not recognised for his contributions to science at the time! Oh and Ron Barrassi did a footy segment for kids, I still have a memory of him nuggetting his footy boots, stating that even if you can't play footy at least make sure you look like one, clean boots, shorts, jumper tucked in etc.

And political correctness hadn't overtaken the Mcc at that time.  But alas it did, leaving the footy club limp & envious.

I loved watching kids almost choking themselves to death trying to out drink Gerry Gee while Ron Blasket (a tisket a tasket) looked on with a sadistic grin across his dial.  King Corky and Princess Panda were always a bit dodgy (rumor was that PP went on to work in adult films). Happy Hammond was a snappy dresser in his plaid suits. Even as a child I could tell that Uncle Norman was a senile old [censored]; still have a vivid picture in my mind of the time he broke his leg on live TV falling down the tiered seats as he walked through his audience.

They all look dodgy to me now, except that one with the wooden smile.

Riddler is a mod. Otherwise the thread would've been closed and the Riddler banned (both should've happened a long time ago). 

316 why be a spoiler, if you don't like the thread stay away, we don't need more censorship.

He actually broke his leg on his first show,  coming down a makeshift slide.  

Also Princess Panda while married to my cousin, her first husband, was related to me. I remember her as a nice lady. She was a former model.

And when the good Princess passed on, did you inherit the royal title?

The riddler had some fun which many seemed to enjoy.  Most recognized it for what it was. 

Generation Dee is a troll but I doubt he'll be banned.

Mods? There's a number of posters here who have chosen to derail this thread with their senescent reminiscings. Time to intervene and get it back on track.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
