Initial Time We Play A Game With Two Letters In Consecutive Weeks

Just in case the guy on KFAN has got his intellectual property ducks in a row with his Kickstarter thing, I will not refer to this game by the same name he has given his version. Instead, this will be the initial time I "host" a game for the second on this platform with the following rules:

1. I will give you two letters (for example, "K.P"). All the items that week will be a two-word answer in which each word begins with letter in the appropriate spot. The answer can be a person, place, thing, or other two-word phrase. For example, if "K.P." are the letters, then one answer might be Kirby Puckett. Another answer might be "Krakow, Poland." And so on.

2. I will provide six clues for each answer. The clues will be provided one-at-a-time.

3. If you believe you know the answer, make a Spoilered guess in the thread. The point will go to whomever correctly identifies the answer first. If you submit an incorrect response, then you can no longer submit for that particular answer.

4. The participant with the most correct answers at the end of the week wins. (If there is a tie, then I will have tiebreakers for only the participants in the tie.)

5. You're going to be on the honor system, but you should not be using the internet or other resources.

The letters will be revealed, and clues for the first phrase will commence, tomorrow at 9:00 am.

            1. C.O. has been especially difficult, I think. With G.F. I had lots of phrases & names come to my mind, pre-clues. This one, I've had very very few, and certainly none of the answers.

  5. Fourth phrase clues:
    1. A cookie
    2. Flew with a buzz
    3. Sang "The Sure-Flo Song"
    4. An understudy for Gilda Radner
    5. Awarded the Order of Canada in 2018

        1. I guess I should note that I'll probably be following a Jeopardyesque rule for handing misspellings. A few I may accept (like if one of the words is hydroxychloroquine), but others I may have to be a stickler about.

          1. For some reason I recall an episode of Classic Concentration where the answer to the rebus was "A Pleasant Surprise." The contestant pronounced it "Suh-prise," and Trebek declared it incorrect and was kind of a dick to the contestant. Took me a while to come back around to Trebek again. I'm sure it wasn't even his decision to turn down the answer.

              1. That's what I was referencing when people were talking about seeing E-6's nephew's basketball games. I'm pretty sure E-6 got it but want to make sure I didn't offend anyone that didn't get the joke.

                    1. I meant that mc chris is just about the only listenable nerdcore. He's clever and does more than just name drop nerdy references.

  6. Phrase five clues:
    1. Assisted by an executive
    2. Responsible for finances
    3. Companies normally do not have one
    4. Units normally do have one

        1. Yeah, but she gave you both, not either.

          Hedging bets like that seems... like something I should loudly protest, on some sort of broad principle, which is really just a ruse for the fact that I didn't have an answer first, and HOWDAREYOUSIR!

    1. Nothing about the 1st clue, strangely had an idea after the 2nd, was sure that idea was right after 3rd. However, I had absolutely no idea who played before Holmes and would have had to look up any answer.
