Pro Hac Vice. For the occasion of Halloween, we return to the hallowed halls of the Transylvanian Superior Court. Pro Hac Vice (Latin for “on this occasion”) is a legal term which allows an attorney to practice law in a jurisdiction where the attorney is not licensed, but only for a specific case. Often this is based upon a long standing client relationship. In such situations, it is advisable to also have local counsel who knows the local rules and is familiar with the peculiarities of local practice and custom. This is particularly true in Transylvanian Superior Court.

Riddle of the Sphynx. No one knows for sure where the rumor that Sphynxes like to laze about road ways accosting passer- by with riddles, but it is almost certainly not true. For one thing, Sphinxes do not exist. If they did exist, I’m confident they would find better things to do with their time. Nevertheless, the stereotype persists.
Cricket manages to talk her way past the Sphynx without actually answering any riddles.
Here are the explanations of the riddles.
The first riddle is the St. Ives riddle (used in Die Hard With a Vengeance) which goes:
As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?

The conventional answer is one, as it is assumed that because the narrator “met” the crazy cat ladies on his way to St. Ives they must have been going the other way. Considering that 7 women were transporting 343 cats and 2,401 kittens, stuffed into 49 sacks, it is certainly possible that the narrator caught up to them. Another problem with the riddle is that it actually asks about “kits, cats, sacks and wives” indicating that neither the narrator nor the husband are included in the call of the question. One is therefore an incorrect answer. The answer is either zero or 2,800, which includes the sacks, but not the narrator or the husband. Here is the Wikipedia article on the riddle:
The second riddle, not asked but alluded to, is the “Pirate Game”, which is actually a highly contrived logic/math problem. Ostensibly, it involves five pirates dividing 100 coins. It has a bunch of rules designed to reach a contrived “counter-intuitive” result that flies in the face of common sense and practical experience. It suggests that if you are perfectly logical in your decision making, you will almost certainly get killed by pirates. The “correct” outcome is a 98-0-1-0-1 split. You can find the official version here:
The final riddle, also not asked but alluded to, is the “Knights and Knaves” riddle involving one guard who always lies and one who always tells the truth. It is used often enough that most people already know how to answer the riddle. You can find more about the Knights and Knaves riddle types here:

Robot Weasels Ripped My Flesh. Based on a title from “Man’s Life,” a 1960’s era “men’s adventure” magazine directed at young males who had never actually been in the woods. The covers featured images of scantily clad men and women being attacked by swarms of non-aggressive and mostly harmless animals like weasels, crabs, and bats. My personal favorite depicts an attack by flying squirrels, captioned “Flying Rodents Ripped My Flesh.”
One infamous cover was titled “Weasels Ripped My Flesh,” which was later used by Frank Zappa’s and the Mothers of Invention for an album title. Of course Robot Weasels are far more dangerous than actual weasels, who rarely if ever attack in swarms.

Has irony become just another word for sarcasm? More importantly, can you survive zombiegeddon without a good catchphrase?
