Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 6, Day 6

Post by DadofTwins »

Getting tomorrow's game up early, since I'll be heavily medicated starting tomorrow morning and for however long it takes me to wake up. I hope to get Round 7 up and running on time, but if it's a day or two late I appreciate your understanding.

THE OLYMPIANS

2: Thrown off Olympus by his mother because he was ugly, this crippled fire god was a victim of Prometheus' theft and Aphrodite's adultery.

4: This god of the grape harvest gave, and then later took away, Midas' ability to turn things to gold by touching them.

6: When Adonis bragged that he was a better hunter than this goddess – Apollo's twin sister – she sent a wild boar to kill him.

8: This guide to the underworld was also known as the slayer of the Argus, whose eyes he put in the peacock's tail feathers.

10: This goddess of the hearth was the first of her father's children to be eaten and the last to emerge from his stomach.

HOMOPHONIC BEFORE & AFTER

(This Before & After category will make sense if you say the responses out loud, but will look funny in writing. The hinge piece changes spelling, but not pronunciation, for the second half.)

3: Lawn mower manufacturer and politician who received a break-up message in the mail.

6: Frank Sinatra's nickname on a TV series starring Ted Danson and Zach Galafinakis.

9: Wheat protein removed from an Oscar & Hammerstein musical based on a book by C. Y. Lee.

12: Stage name of Curtis James Jackson in the movie where Al Pacino plays a blind soldier.

15: Commandment in Exodus 20:15 in which “the sanctuary looks like it was hosed down with Pepto-Bismol.”
