Chuckle from the NY Times Magazine

I decided to try the word puzzle in the Times Sunday Magazine today. Each question gave three clues. You answer the first one, replace the letter it directs you to replace with the word suggested by the second clue, and wind up with the answer to the third clue. To quote from the directions: "For example, given the first clue 'Show the way,' and asked to replace D with 'At no time,' to get 'Wife of King Arthur,' you would answer GUI(NEVER)E. That's GUIDE, replacing the D with NEVER."

Question 5 was the following:
Struck with a switch (-E +"Like a Rolling Stone" singer)= Kids' board game.

Click "continued" for the answer.
CAN(DYLAN)D -- CANED, minus E + DYLAN = CANDYLAND

Okay, so it's not *that* funny, but it still made me smile.

Hey Dyke Grrl! From one hapily partnered, queer, grad student, aspiring housewife to another- cheers on the new blog!
Also, I find that, now that my wife turned me on to spanking, there are references to spanking and submission all over the place... especially in the literature I read for my grad work. Makes me smile every time.
