"Wait a minute, this isn't Albatross!" (Awful riddles thread)


Did the victims drown?


All elaborate murders of the imaperv Countdown killer. The clock in question on each occasion was attached to an hydrochloric dimethyloxide cannister device that would expel the contents in a sealed environment should they fail to find a nine-letter answer to a CONUNDRUM. All clocks show 30s. Bow tie left at scene unreported.


and he clocks them in the head


WITH the clock, which is why they stop.


Doesn’t say it’s on the same day!!!1


Hmm, no.


It’s not.


Kind of. They’re not stopped exactly.


No, they didn’t.


Not much of this is correct.


Is an alarm set at the same time on each of them?


That’s true, it doesn’t.

They probably did die on the same day, or within a few days of each other. Though not necessarily at the same times on those days.


There are no alarms that can be set.




are the clocks timers on BOMBS


Thoughts: countdown timers, time zones, completely unrelated coincidence unhitherto


No they are not.


I’ll give you a penny for them.


The clocks were set at the same time as they had just been bought, and didnt have batteries in them.


This one is very, very difficult.
