The following are colloquialisms/idioms written in their literal form. This time though, there are only three that you need to find.

Example: A Panthera Pardus is incapable of altering its texture. (A leopard can't change its spots)

1. In the general area, but failing to acquire the roll of tobacco.

2. Please pardon my accidental use of a romance language derived from Latin.

3. Direct your attention to the melodic tones currently occurring.

CUTE. VERY EASY!
scallioAus*
Jul 10, 2006

I find these extremely easy, but I enjoy them immensely.

By the way, the phrase I had always heard was "Pardon my French" rather than "Excuse my French". Tres interesent.

Like most everyone else I got the first two. Had trouble with the 3rd.I've heard the expression, just didn't put it together with the sentence. Great teaser.

I have been around too many people to have NOT heard any of these I got ALL of them! A very grand way to get the mind going. Keep up the spectacular work. BTW, we will always hear variables of these sayings, because people will vary them for different circumstances!

Jul 10, 2006

I really like these. I got the first two and couldn't believe I didn't get the last one once I saw the answer.
utnative*
Jul 10, 2006

i did't get any, but was close on #2
i guess i better practice alot more if
i want to solve any. very very good
keep up the good work.

Jul 10, 2006

I thought that, like alot of people, the 3rd one was pretty hard, but I THINK I got the 1st 2!!!
FatHeadAus*
Jul 10, 2006

Nice!

But I thought "Romance language" and "derived from Latin" was redundant.
FatHeadAus*
Jul 10, 2006

Oh yeah, and I also thought that first one was kinda cute.

I thought the third paraphrase was a little more obscure and difficult to guess than the first two.
drussel3*us*
Jul 10, 2009

I like it. Had a bit of difficulty w/ 3rd one.
emu77alu02us*
Jul 10, 2009

Good teaser and fun! Just takes a little thinking! Thanks!

Good teaser. I got 2/3 (thought #3 was "listen to the music"), however I had some personal issues with #2:
I've always heard the phrase being said "Pardon my French"
The definition of "romance language" is "derived from Latin"
