Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.
To fully defox the following geofoxer, identify all twelve locations plus the theme that links them.

Think B is the entrance to Manchester Piccadilly station, taken from the spot where the statue of WWI veterans is.
[Edit] Yep. It’s taken from the spot of this sculpture.
F is the Kicker statue in Nuremburg
E is presumably somewhere on the Southern Bug river https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Bug
H looks very much like Deal Pier
D. The Button (officially, Split Button) at University of Pennsylvania
Bluff, deal, bug, stud, kicker, button, whale… Poker terms?
Would mean that “blind” is the link to B.
Bit cheeky/lucky to put whale already. Which one’s the stud?
i. Whales of Iceland / Icelandic Whale Museum, Reykjavik
Looks like G is the USS Texas, reinforcing the poker theme.
J. Turning Two
Whereabouts is this? I still can’t find it!
Dixon Recreation Center: https://goo.gl/maps/gXpEEA2vmTTWbDhG8.
They have some statues, one called Turning Two and the one in front the “Fosbury Flop”. I got the wrong one.
C. The Rock
More specifically, here:
A. I would say it’s Irish poker, no idea where though.
Well muck that, it’s actually Muck Island, Scotland.
L – Bluff Maritime Museum
K – The Stud Bar, San Francisco
