THE PUZZLE CORNER: NOVEMBER 14, 2020

๐Ÿ˜ŽFUN FACT
Every letter of the alphabet is present within the members of the United States’ names except Q.

RHYME TIME

The clue to something is below, but no matter how long your answer is, each word within it must rhyme. Ready?
Nocturnal Beacon???

REBUS: REMEMBERING ALEX TREBEK
We lost the long time host of Jeopardy! November 8. Among the other game shows he hosted over the course of his career was the 1987-1991 version of Concentration, the classic rebus game.
Can you solve the puzzle Trebek is posing with in this publicity photo on the right?

We’ll reveal all next weekend but for now, let’s open up THE ANSWERS BOX๐Ÿ“ฆ and discover the results from the November 7, 2020 Puzzle Corner.



AKA, ALSO KNOWN AS
Who do we know Oscar Diggs better as?
L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz. His full name is Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkle Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs, but I wouldn't call him Oz Pin Head. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this answer.)

THE 50/50 CHANCE
Just like a regular TRIVIA TIME question, except there are just two possible answers, hence the even odds of getting it right. Ready?
TRUE or FALSE: The Archies are a one hit wonder group with ♫Sugar Sugar♫.
FALSE! While ♫Sugar Sugar♫ is their biggest hit, it was also the third of five releases, with the follow up single ♫Jingle Jangle♫ making it to Number 10 that same year-1969.
