NPR Sunday Puzzle (Jul 20): Weekend Edition Sunday Puzzle -- Answer

We are still in Iceland so I this will have to be another "autopost". Since I didn't see the puzzle beforehand, I'm not sure how I managed to get some hints in there, but the following words do seem to be clues, at least to a possible answer:
Fruitful, Central, Dead(line)


  1. Blaine,

    Don't sell yourself short!

    The best clue to "corpse" was the location of your trip -- Iceland.

    How did you ever know?

    - The Real Ben

  2. I used pique and piquet. I guess we will see on Sunday. Blaine's answer is better, of course.

  3. Corpse and corps is the same answer I got.
    Glad to know you are out there working on this too.


For NPR puzzle posts, don't post the answer or any hints that could lead to the answer before the deadline (usually Thursday at 3pm ET). If you know the answer, submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
