    Default Help with a puzzle

    The list of clues below are all supposed to clue one word or meaning that when combined with the other clues/words, will reveal a final answer of an action or thing.

    Here is an example:

    Arachnophobia=Fear of spiders, spiders have "8" legs
    Las Vegas =Las Vegas has "Magic" shows
    New England Patriots= Foot"Ball" team
    Weight Loss= a "Shake"
    ESPN= "8" ball billiard tournaments

    When put together the answer is Shaking a magic 8 ball

    Here are the clues for this puzzle:

    1. DC Comics
    2. Merry Christmas
    3. Hollywood
    4. Hams
    5. Florida
    6. Seinfeld
    7. NUBODY
    8. NSYNC
    9. Classic Toy
    10. Wedding Crashers
    11. Good Will Hunting
    12. Summertime
    13. Be Careful!
    14. Bounce

    Any ideas?

    Those are some nice answers Domino! I think that they answers need to repeat more, for example:

    1. DC Comics - Comic "Books"
    2. Merry Christmas - Surviving Christmas stars "Ben" affleck
    3. Hollywood - Tom and "Jerry" movie
    4. Hams - ?
    5. Florida - ?
    6. Seinfeld - "Jerry" seinfeld
    7. NUBODY - ?
    8. NSYNC - ?
    9. Classic Toy - Tom and "Jerry" wind up toy
    10. Wedding Crashers - ?
    11. Good Will Hunting - ?
    12. Summertime - ?
    13. Be Careful! - "watch" out?
    14. Bounce - stars "Ben" affleck

    Ben and Jerry Watch?

    Something like that, I think is how it should go?

    11. Good Will Hunting - ? is another Ben Affleck thing, he wrote it and acted in it.

    Did we get a context for this contest? Is there a promotional website involved?

    If the Classic Toy is Lego this can also link to Ben Affleck's Batman.

    Here's my attempt (some connections are weaker than others, and some I left as suggested by Domino):
    1. DC Comics - There are a number of characters in DC comics named Ben or Jerry
    2. Merry Christmas - Surviving Christmas with Ben Affleck
    3. Hollywood - Hollywoodland with Ben Affleck
    4. Hams - The Town - with Ben Affleck and John Hamm
    5. Florida - In "The Town" Ben Affleck's character is planning on running away to Florida
    6. Seinfeld - "Jerry" Seinfeld
    7. NUBODY - Ben Affleck's "new body" to play Batman, -or- Ben Affleck was in a 1994 movie called "A Body to Die For" about a high school football player who takes steroids. (Be Careful?)
    8. NSYNC - The band played with Ben Stiller at a Super Bowl Halftime, plus Ben Stiller's dad is Jerry Stiller
    9. Classic Toy - Tom and "Jerry" wind up toy
    10. Wedding Crashers with Ben Stiller
    11. Good Will Hunting with Ben Affleck
    12. Summertime - There is a song, "Summertime" by Jerry Garcia. Ben & Jerry's Ice cream has a flavor, Cherry Garcia
    13. Be Careful! There is a You Tube video called "Watch Out, Ben!"
    14. Bounce - Ben Affleck
    15. Parachute - Song called "Parachute" by Ben Hazelwood (?)
    16. HBO - not sure…Jerry Seinfeld HBO special?
    17. Be Careful! The Ben & Jerry flavor "Vermonty Python", named after Monty Python?
    18. Not Even Close! Willie Nelson has a song, "Far Away Places" - Ben & Jerry's has a ice-cream flavor called "Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler"
    19. Summertime - We eat ice cream in the summertime

    I think these may all be clues to Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, possibly to their different flavors. Maybe there are more clues to specific flavors. There are 14 named for celebrities alone. Just a guess.
