    In this game, I make up cryptic clues that reveal the usernames of PF members. Other folks guess the names and provide the reasoning.

    See Part I for examples and some solutions.

    When I'm tired or worse, exhausted, I'll open the clue making to the rest of you.

    Here's an example (courtesy Icvotria, for the clue and HMS for the solution): A yearly chant in the morning reflected

    Answer: Yomamma

    Reasoning:
    Yearly = Y
    Chant = Om
    Morning = AM
    Reflected (AM) = MA

    Here we go!

    Yeah, why don't I?

    Note: Some of the answers may be commonly used contractions of the complete usernames (eg: Greg, for Greg Berhardt).

    I have no clue what #2 is saying, but I would think an obvious guess would be franznietzsche

    That's the answer! Anyone got an explanation?

    #4 rocketboy. Bottle Rocket as the firefwork, and the spoonerism comes in with the switching of the letters "bo" at the end of the username?

    2. disenfranchize, without Che inside

    franchize - che = franize

    #1 is Ivan?

    Good guess, but that's not what I had in mind.

    That's much closer, but not completely right, as you can see.

    Ha ha, no.

    1. Could also be Tsu, since she "includes" on occasion a fancy russian? :confused:

    Of course it is! I'd like to see his reaction to this though. :biggrin:

    In short => abbreviate or contract

    are = R
    you = U
    Schutzstaffel = SS

    Even if it's obvious, please include the reasoning henceforth.

    Nope, try again. Cyrus was pretty close, but didn't go all the way with the logic.

    No it's not, gutterbrain!

    wait... :rofl:

    #4: Larkspur? The firework being Sparkler, and the spoonerized part being the reversal, but somewhat off.
