Sir Stubbs is handing over the reins to Sax for PCS Season 5 Puzzle #9. But I've made this easy for you: in fact, everything you're going to need to get started is in the image below. Enjoy!

(click image to enlarge)

-------

HINT #1 (12:43p): The first picture is a bulldog.

HINT #2 (5:12p): Here are the word lengths you're trying to solve, in order (columns, left to right):

  • 7, 4, 3-1, 4, 5, 4;
  • 4, 6, 6, 3, 3, 4-3;
  • 3-4, 7;
  • 4, 5-3, 6-4, 6, 6;
  • 4, 6, 3-4, 3, 5-5, 7

Puzzle Rules: The solution to the puzzle is a Dodger...but you're going to have to find him. Comment freely in the thread, but if you have the solution, please don't give it away to everyone in the comments section. Instead, do the following:

  • Send us an Email with "PCS" somewhere in the subject line, containing the first and last name of the players, along with your reasoning. Submitted answers without the reasoning, or those submitted with the incorrect reasoning, will count for participation only, even if the answer itself is correct. And please include your screen name somewhere in the email; and
  • Post a comment simply saying you have emailed your solution attempt. We may not be able to reply to your original email promptly, so please be patient and check back on the comment thread for the latest news; we may confirm correct answers there.
You have until midnight PT tonight to submit your answer. Answer will be posted tomorrow morning. Good luck!

Dog puck toad soup!

Steve Sax said...

Man, I'm disappointed at the low turnout here...

ubragg said...

I agree, Sax. I was hoping for a bigger turnout on my puzzle last time, too, especially since I specifically designed it to be a fun and easy one that I thought the folks here would enjoy. I guess this doesn't bode well for the future of the PCS.

And where's BCCSweet?

BCCSweet said...

Oof! My calendar failed to remind me today. Looking now...

Hideo Nomo said...

I miss playing under my old self.

Spank Horst said...

Sorry for not participating,folks. I've been hypnotized by Golems avatar for the last ten hours.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Yeah,the threshold has been low all year. Taking both Nomo and myself out of the regular competitors does bear some of the blame, but we (I) definitely need to brainstorm how to broaden the appeal. We've been hanging around at 3-4 correct responses on an average week.

Steve Sax said...

Maybe the PCS needs more scantily-clad women.

Steve Sax said...

(besides ubragg, of course)

I wear my banana-hammock every off thursday, and it doesn't seem to help.

Wait, you said "women", didn't you?
