A Word Game

I have invented a fabulous new word game. Ish. Here are the rules:

Each clue will yield a two-word answer that is seemingly contradictory. The catch? The second word will have a double meaning, thus making the answer possibly true rather than utterly false.

For an example, I will use one of the worse ones:

Her old enemy's insulting barbs were a balm to the wounds of confusion.

Answer: Medicinal poison.

Comment your answers and I will post the answers and your scores soon!

1. The innocuous witnesses provided evidence that brought the criminal to justice.

2. The aficionado had no hints to go on.

3. The tennis players despised each other, which may have distracted them; both of them ended up with a score of 0.

4. She told the hungry man that they couldn't eat the food with cautious tact.

5. The assistant was of no service at all.

Bonus Question:
The protagonist of Gammage Cup was a true witch.


Hello, Imaginers! No, I'm not dead. Yes, I am aware that since school started my posting has been... erratic.

And now that it's summer, that has continued. But to be fair, I have been traveling, and after that I did have guests.

You miiight notice that this is my hundredth post. (I've said that before, but I didn't realize that the Blogger count included drafts.)

I'm not going to promise to post more regularly, but I have stuff in "real life" and also habits of procrastination to deal with. But I will try.

The problem is, I have absolutely no idea what to post.

So see you later.
