Krazy Klues *21

Welcome to yet another step backward in the history of humor. As always, each entry is the clue for a tasteless pun. My mother-in-law laughed so hard at this quiz that she choked on her cigar!

Krazy Klues #6

As always, each answer is not only one or two separate words, but an incredibly stupid pun as well. I'll give you clues for all three. I'm sure you'll find them thought provoking, and real knee-slappers too.

Krazy Klues #8

Each clue is not only a word made up of two or more separate words, but also a socially and morally inexcusable pun. I will give you clues for each. Warning! Knuckles, my mother-in-law laughed so hard at this quiz that she coughed up a hair ball.

Cryptic Crossword Clues #4

Here we go again. I hope that these keep you thinking for a while. (How to read the extra hints: 3(1,4) would mean that the 3rd letter of the word is the same as the 4th letter of clue #1. My answers form a grid.)

Cryptic Clues: World Capitals

Another cryptic quiz by me. Since these are so hard out of context of their grids, this one's a theme. All of the answers are capital cities of the world (so all definitions indicate that). You need only unravel the cryptic part.
