Elihu Leather Metapuzzle
by Jeffrey Harris
Each interview segment features a food or beverage product whose name is (sometimes obliquely) synonymous with an answer to one of the puzzles in this dossier. Furthermore, each interviewee’s dialogue contains a phrase which can be interpreted as a method to extract a letter (or letters) from the corresponding solution word.
|“take the third/fifth”||Nehi||raDaR love|
|“letters in prime position”||Grey Goose||wATeRbIrd|
|“right between the eyes (I’s)”||Whoppers||falsiTies|
|“odd characters”||Clearly Canadian||OnTaRiAn|
|“second half”||Royal Crown||diaDEM|
|“at sixes and sevens”||Cheerios||sayonARas|
Reading the indicated letters in clip order gives the motive phrase: DR. A TRIED TO TRADE MARK.
