As you'll hear from the podcast, a wounded TJ was having to do his on-air performance while one-handing it on his iPhone this week, so we've ended up with not one but two lost limericks for your puzzle-solving pleasure this week. For each rhyme, fill in the blank with the word or phrase from this week's Oregon news:
As a bomb squad case, this one was rare,
Still, some caution was sensible there.
It lacked fuses or wire--
Its crotch wasn't on fire--
It was simply a lost ____________ .
In Corvallis, it's beavers and coaches
They applaud as the season approaches.
But a time's drawing near
When they'll all raise a cheer
For those six-legged wonders, __________ .
(The answer can be found in the Comments below, or in this week's Spanning the State at Loaded Orygun.)
