Each answer will have two words with the same consonants in the same order. An example, for the newcomers:

When Spies Collide

which is of course a

collusion collision.

Based on Riley's recent riddle.

Now for the actual puzzle:

  1. 😎 (4, 4) (l)

  2. vegan insult (4, 5) (r)

  3. satellite (5, 5) (t)

  4. performer permanence (5, 6) (r)

  5. cow suit pun (5, 6) (r)

  6. new chicken tarantella (3, 5) (g)

  7. fluffy ticket (6, 8) (n)

  8. The wrath of grapes (6, 5) (n)

  9. Einstein's Leftovers (6, 6) (t)

  10. Presidential Seasoning (6, 7) (n)

And the first letters of each answer will be an anagram of the answer to this one final challenge:

Cats would be __________s.

Helpful information:

  • Every answer is a noun.
  • You won't be able to solve the last clue without the other answers probably.
  • Most of the answers are humorous, and will fit the clues clearly. If it's questionable, it's probably wrong.
  • The pairs of numbers after the clues are the letter counts of the answers.
  • The letters after the clues are the last consonants of the answers.

  • $\begingroup$ (not a downvoter) Why require the initials to be anagrammed as opposed to listing the clues in the correct order? $\endgroup$ – noedne Apr 20 '18 at 1:37

    $\begingroup$ @noedne It makes it harder to get the clues from guessing the final answer. The final answer's purpose is to rule out alternative answers mostly. If people have trouble, I might give away the order of the clues in the last challenge $\endgroup$ – Austin Weaver Apr 20 '18 at 1:43
  • $\begingroup$ "permanence" means the act/quality of being "permanent" right? $\endgroup$ – NL628 Apr 20 '18 at 4:16

    $\begingroup$ Very nice of you to add the letter counts! :) Thought I was going crazy: "Were those there the entire time???" $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Apr 21 '18 at 14:19

  • $\begingroup$ hmm @AustinWeaver what's the final thing though? I found a bunch of anagrams but I can't tell which one's right. Is it two words or one word in the blank? $\endgroup$ – NL628 Apr 28 '18 at 3:49

I'm still struggling, but I'm going to toss in one of my guesses here in hopes that it helps.

  1. fluffy ticket:

  2. The wrath of grapes:

    Violent Valiant (Valiant is a type of grape)

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nope, nice try though. Notice that that is an adjective, where the answer will be a noun (What is "the wrath of grapes"?) $\endgroup$ – Austin Weaver Apr 20 '18 at 2:13
  • $\begingroup$ if everything is two words, wouldn't the answers be mostly an adjective followed by a noun? $\endgroup$ – wolfram42 Apr 20 '18 at 2:16
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, they are actually all nouns (I'll edit this into the question). $\endgroup$ – Austin Weaver Apr 20 '18 at 2:17
