Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 3, Day 6

Post by DadofTwins »

Wrapping up the week early.

Today's first-round category was suggested by Peggles. So if you like the idea, she gets the credit, but if you hate how it was executed, that's all on me.

See you soon.

“OK” BY ME

Suggested by Peggles. Each correct response will contain those lettrs in that order somewhere in the response.

2: This seed pod, a key ingredient in gumbo, develops a characteristic slimy goo when cooked.

4: This Florida lake has shoreline in five different counties, including one named for the lake itself.

6: This face-first style, the slowest discipline in competitive swimming, combines a sweeping arm motion and a distinctive “frog kick.”

8: Larry McMurtry won a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for this 2005 cowboy romance starring Heath Ledger.

10: This band founded by Neil Sedaka had gold-record hits with “Tonight I Fall In Love” and “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”

MYTHS IN SPACE

3: This Zodiac sign represents the animal whose fleece Jason and the Argonauts sought.

6: Juno sent this creature to nip at Hercules' heels as he battled the Hydra, then placed him in the heavens when he was crushed beneath Hercules' feet.

9: The constellation Aquarius and a moon of Jupiter represent this Phrygian youth who served as cup bearer to the gods.

12: When Typhoeus attacked Jupiter, Bacchus turned himself into this Zodiac creature with the head and body of a goat ad the tail of a fish.

15: This Ethiopian queen, known for both her beauty and her vanity, sits on her throne next to her daughter Andromeda.
