Nicknames are fun.

I like the puzzles that don't make we want to kill Kill KILL!

The simplicity of this puzzle, and the fact that I couldn't figure out the right combination of names makes me want to KILL KILL KILL!

The nicknames help take the edge off though.

I like to think that Rihanna is a huge Star Wars nerd and she secretly wants to be "A DARK FORCE".

Did anyone get any other fun answers like this?

Greg Finley said...

I immediately thought it would be A "KEMP" _____, but had no idea what the last part was. KEMP-TATION?

I also tried to screw with the other capitalized letters in the puzzle (like PHOTOSYNTHESIS) to see if they were an anagram.

I thought it would be a "A ---- WOMAN". Then kinda guessed it had to be Kemp. To be honest, I don't get the pun.

Josh S. said...

I personally would have gone with KEMPT.

This one was so easy that it felt tricky. I like that.

at Orel and EK's suggestion, we decided to make this puzzle a bit more accessible...hope you guys liked it.

Kyle Baker said...

At one point I had a combination that led to "A ____ Mouth" and that hung me up as it just seemed too close to something we might say re Rihanna and Matt. Ando I couldn't work "shitty haircut" in any which way I tried.

Thanks Orel, great puzzle!

Updated scores will be posted a bit late, but hopefully I'll still get it in some time tomorrow.
