PUZZLE: Rice Milk #4

TLAAP_tile_martini

WORD (11) / PHRASE (5 6)

Growing WORD can explore moral ways
As they wrangle with Little League plays.
A young runner on first
With this thought may be cursed:
“Is it I morally wrong if I PHRASE?”

  1. Rice Milk #3 answer: The Oracle / hot cereal. Mike Nothnagel earned the nickname “The Oracle” on the bygone “Ryan and Brian Do Crosswords” podcast. Mike responded by email to some puzzle matters R&B expressed confusion about in one episode. The two subsequently declared Mike was the “knower of all things” and would call him out in podcasts whenever they needed an answer to some point of trivia. However Mike may have felt about his “Oracle” role for R&B, he certainly does have a broad knowledge of trivia, as evidenced by his weekly “Any Questions” show on WAMC Public Radio (http://wamc.org/programs/any-questions).

  2. The podcast, of course, was entitled “Fill Me In”, and it’s been so long that I’ve forgotten most of the nicknames…

    BTW, what does “Rice Milk” mean? I don’t think there’s been an explanation on the blog and don’t recall seeing the title elsewhere.

    • Thanks for clarifying the podcast name; “Ryan and Brian Do Crosswords” was the website that featured the “Fill Me In” podcast.

      “Rice Milk” is just a transposal of limerick, since the puzzles in the series are all limericks with transposal bases.
