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


#2301

Did the victims drown?


#2302

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.


#2303

and he clocks them in the head


#2304

WITH the clock, which is why they stop.


#2305

Doesn’t say it’s on the same day!!!1


#2306

Hmm, no.


#2307

It’s not.


#2308

Kind of. They’re not stopped exactly.


#2309

No, they didn’t.


#2310

Not much of this is correct.


#2311

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


#2312

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.


#2313

There are no alarms that can be set.


#2314

Alarming


#2315

are the clocks timers on BOMBS


#2316

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


#2317

No they are not.


#2318

I’ll give you a penny for them.


#2319

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


#2320

This one is very, very difficult.
