Friday Foxer #120

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.

Every puzzle piece in this jigsaw foxer features an image taken from a Wikipedia page beginning with the letter *REDACTED*. To fully defox the puzzle, supply Roman with a list of all 36 Wikipedia pages.

  1. A5. JOINT SECURITY AREA – (often referred to as the Truce Village or Panmunjom) is the only portion of the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) where North and South Korean forces stand face-to-face.

    ETA: B6. JUGGERNAUT – cart in the Ulsoor temple complex in Bangalore, India, around 1870

  2. C3. JEW’S HARP – is a lamellophone instrument, apparently

    ETA: C1. JOSS PAPER – also known as incense papers, are sheets of paper made into burnt offerings common in Chinese ancestral worship

    ETFA: “Different types of spirit money are given to distinct categories of spirits. The three main types of spirit money are cash (also known as copper), silver and gold. Cash monies are given to newly deceased spirits and spirits of the unknown. Golden Joss papers (jin) are mostly offered to the Deities such as the Jade Emperor. Silver Joss paper (ying) is given exclusively to ancestral spirits as well as other spirits. These distinctions between the three categories of spirit money must be followed precisely to avoid confusing or insulting the spirits.”

  3. B5 – JENNY VON WESTPHALEN (Karl Marx’s wife, although the picture is of him and his daughter)

  4. D6. are Bonnie and Clyde, but I can’t make a J connection yet.

    ah. JOPLIN, MISSOURI – photo found on undeveloped film; developed by the Joplin Globe after the shootout

  5. D1. JAGUAR 2 – in full: Raketenjagdpanzer 4 Jaguar 2, West German tank destroyer

    IMO makes it less likely that B3. is a Jaguar car of some sort

    • Lol, looked up Jim crow protests for this, and Jujutsu for the guy with symbols on him initially.

      So close!
