Saying "Van's Tour" strikes me as an end-around instead of honing in on things that are actually warped.

The classic example of an end-around was "dog('s) bugs" for THINGS AT A FLEA MARKET. Certainly, one might find those there (particularly in today's dogs-are-allowed-everywhere society), but the ONLY reason you're saying it is to surreptitiously convey the word flea.

Great example. Two other examples I mentioned to Mark in our conversation were "Betty" for "Things that are white", and "A great lake" for "Things that are superior".

Although isn't the last one different. It is called Lake Superior because it is literally Superior in size to the other 4.

But they did zap that clue for superior. Unless they had great/superior as synonymous, I disagree with their call. Charlie Siebert argued that case, and they played him off with the music like he went 5 seconds too long on an awards speech. Dick's suggestion of "head nun mother" was marginal, I felt, because it's leading you into the title "Mother Superior."

"The head nun mother? That isn't even English!"

Great and superior are absolutely synonyms.  One of the given definitions for 'superior' on dictionary.com is "greater in quantity or amount".

Also, apropos of nothing, I would think the definitive clue for "Things that are Warped" would have to be "Tupperware lids".

It's also nonsense, which is illegal.

"A Deranged mind"?
"A dark sense of humor"? Didn't someone win one of the tournaments with "wet wood"? That to me is the perfect clue, especially if you say wet or untreated wooden floors.

I'd totally buzz that clue on synonym grounds.

"A mistreated record."

Or even "A melted record".

"A ninja's wall" just came to mind, though that might get buzzed just for referring to a show on another network.  :-P
