old french and old norse, a fine dancing horse
incisions, and bulges arboreal
boxed gabled roofs, the thunder of hoofs
injuries and defects corporeal

salads and tarts, ah th culinary arts!
and a flower to set on the table
methinks I should swoon were I Rocky Raccoon
(Ill be better as soon as Im able)

vote early and often ere we sleep in our coffins
carpe diem and all of that rot
be ye bolder or shier, honest or liar
speak up and lets see what ya got







(a) a traditional horse race in Iran since the reign of the Darius Kings in ancient Persia

(b) one of the moves taught to Lippizan stallions

(c) a tart plate landaise with prunes; made world-famous by French chef Nicole Gauduchou

(d) [OF darole] a cylindrical dessert mold used in French cookery

(e) n. [ON. daruhl] protruding ring formed on a tree where a limb is severed

(f) an Irish dance step similar to the slip jig, but of a slower tempo

(g) the return of a boxed eave in a gabled roof

(h) the center section of the large outer flower of a yellow composite, comprising the small inner flowers

(i) small incision in burlap for attaching a grommet

(j) congenital prolapsed uterus

(k) a protuberance above the coccyx due to excessive abdominal exercise

(l) a small Indian tree which yields a soft wood valued for carving

(m) the specialized hinge at the elbow on French medieval armor, named after its chief proponent, the Viscount Da Riol, the noted swordsman and raconteur who formed the basis for the fictional character Harolde Le Sale.

This fool rushes out, but here's the reward for the good hogmasters. Hog's wild cousin.
Greek, 6th century B.C. Lucania.
Silver coin. (sorry , the gold went over my budget)

I'll take E, having been lured by the analogy to "petiole."

(And it wasn't an E-Z choice, E-ither, I'll have you know.)

I vote P for Alex's great poem which proves that he can be creative as well as rude.

I haven't a clue, so I'll say C because I don't know what landaise means.
