Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 5, Day 2

Post by DadofTwins »

Rex raised an interesting question in an Instant Replay thread a while ago:

Don't some of these clues sound a bit familiar?

Well, maybe. In past SHC's I've checked my work against the Archive and past games using the search function on the old Sony board to make sure I'm presenting new material. Now that the Sony Board is dead (and apparently not to be resurrected any time soon), and the hard drive on which I wrote the last three SHC's had an unfortunate orange soda bath and fall from a high place earlier this year, I'm going mostly by memory. Google cache helps somewhat, and there are a few other places I can look, but otherwise I'm just hoping that interesting material I come across isn't something I've come across before.

That said, if anybody knows of a way to recapture past SHC's (especially '08-'10), I'd be highly appreciative.

On we go.

Frottage is like graffiti; some may consider it an art form, but I think it's just something dirty on the subway.

Here's hoping I didn't confuse my 6 painter with my 15 painter!
