I thought of promise and onion for ring. How would you phrase "5 golden rings" from "12 Days of Christmas"?
Hmmm... I suppose someone could say “Christmas golden” with the hope the receiver would understand the reference; I don’t think singing the clue would be allowed. :)

Tough subjects that round. Dick Clark often said “Get a picture”; I think that would have helped with “Red Fruits (Foods)”, at least.

I don't know how true it is they're moving to a, well, more raunchy direction.

That said, I think I've said here before that bleeping an answer was very rare on the original "Pyramid." Maxene Fabe's book "The Game Show Book" did state one known instance, where Sandy Duncan was bleeped for a clue she gave for "Things That Are Stiff." (Use your imagination.)

(Sandy, BTW, was also known to have been the lone clue giver to break the straps to hold your hands during the WC gameplay, so as to discourage/stop hand-gesturing.)

From this week’s episode there was a thoroughly unnecessary item for things that follow other things. They didn’t really need to go there.

The perfect clue for "murder, "_____, She Wrote."
November: "I'm the month Thanksgiving is in."
I totally did not expect Danielle to win the game and win $150,000.
$169,000 was won tonight. That's good.

On the July 15th episode: Here's something I don't remember seeing before in this version of Pyramid. The same Mystery 7 trip destination was offered in both the first and second half-hours. I also noticed that the main game subject titles were not revealed one by one as done earlier this season.

Concerning some of the Winner's Circle subjects: Good idea from Strahan to add "Mr" to "Travolta" for "Men named John"; under pressure I could only come up with "Kennedy" and "Brown". I too thought of "A movie theater" for "Things You Sneak Into", but I probably would have whispered the clue. Great clues for "Things You Cuddle (Snuggle)", but the word just didn't come to mind apparently. Perhaps the contestant should have also said "your girlfriend" or something to that effect.

Danielle was an excellent Pyramid player. Very clever saying "the exit one", "the entrance one", and "the sliding one" for "Types of Doors". Adding "hot" to "ice cream" for "Things That Melt" was smart. She also played the main game really well.

I thought her two Winner's Circle round subjects were pretty easy overall, especially those for $50K. She blasted through those. I'm also glad she didn't say "I'm the month after October"; I would have avoided that also for the possibility of being buzzed.

Things You Sneak Into was definitely a difficult subject. I would've said a movie theater, an R rated movie, a nightclub, a private party, and a private swimming pool.

Very good thinking: including a couple of "private" clues.
