NICK THE GREEK? You bet he does!

Do you think he's a SMOKER, DAD?

Wait a minute, Nick the Greek has two Ks and what you gave has only one.

I better take it back and go think some more...

I still wonder...how much would you bet that Santa's a SMOKER, DAD?

I believe that Nick-- the ODDSMAKER-- was a saint in Las Vegas only. I wonder how he would have done in the RACIER STATE of KY?

I'm afraid that ever since I let my MAD Magazine subscription lapse, and don't see their satires any more, I've lost touch with most current movies...but thanks for trying.

Hollywood is a RAT RACE SITE, anyway.
Although if they had cast Ms. James in a horror film, she would have been a SCARIER ETTA.

Oh well. Happy New Year to all, regardless!

Oh, HIM ! Why didn't you say so! No wonder I was going round in circles (well, ovals...)

Now if we had bet our money on SECRETARIAT, we'd all have more to invest in REAR SUITES. Real estate is a safe bet, right?

Don't do that. They're all just anagrams.

RACIER STATE = {A,A,C,E,E,I,R,R,S,T,T} = SECRETARIAT

The banter is just trying to make it easier (believe it or not) by providing some kind of oblique clue. Kentucky, racy, state, nag, all suggest horse racing (supposedly) and hint at Secretariat. Triple crown and movies are trying to be additional hints. Feel free to ignore everything but the BOLD LETTERS because they are what gets anagrammed. If they make any sense on their own that's nice, but unnecessary. And sometimes misleading.

That would be The Lizard Book, subtitled

On another subject, I'm trying to figure out - is MARILYN RIPE ? Perhaps you might give me your early conclusions, and your primary line of thought on the matter.

What's all the fuss abut ONANISM? Doesn't every farmer plan on spilling his seed upon the ground?

OH, HISPANIC M.P. congratulated the team after they won the World Cup futbol in 2010. I think I'll go watch Tebow & Co. encounter Brady & Co., even though it's only a preliminary game in USian football.

Betcha didn't think there was another possibility! I didn't either until just now, when I came back for another look.

(There's a very old Peanuts cartoon, where Schroeder and Linus [I think] ask Charlie Brown (who's older than they are) to settle an argument: Is there or is there not a Santa Claus? And he demurs, saying he refuses to get involved in a theological discussion. But then, he was too young to drink...)

Some EXPERIMENTAL theater does take a lot of explaining, and has no metrical basis whichever side of the pond you're on....

The English prefer a COIR CORSET instead, allegedly.

Hyperbole is just a posh way of saying exaggeration in rhetoric. Although, since exaggeration is the longer word, maybe it's the other way round? Now I'm lost ... Perhaps being SO FECUND mixed me up.

So, your reputation for solving these is untarnished, Hab.

A NAIF MONITOR might give you too much of this.

BTW, in my last post I originally typed "You're the confused one..." I think that might have given the answer away slightly! Roll Eyes Luckily I spotted it just before submitting the post.

Umm. Yes. Well, INFORMATION is wherever you find it.

I made a simple plan once, and I had to put FOUR IN IT to make it come to this.

Edit: just couldn't make up my mind which form of the verb to use, he said tensely.

Was he kept here because of his BARBED SHIN? (Two words.)

The answer is (TA RA) BEHIND BARS.

Perhaps someone else ought to post the next one. (Preferably with a one word answer as two or more seems too difficult for us.)
