Flush with her victory, she is immediately surrounded by reporters who pepper her with leading questions and they comment that she probably is at a loss for words.

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious

Question 1378: What happens there, stays there

Hey guys, back after a long break, sorry, been a pretty harsh month for me, will try to post consistently now. After public opinion (Rohan Danait) I will mark the cryptic elements with a "*"

Where will you find the following (do not take it literally or directly)

A] The Saints

B] The Angry/ Hot

C] The Lucky



F](Shopping) The origin of this word is dated back to 15th century Latin, meaning sacrificial animal.



I](Place)*Tiny version of what it looks like.
K] (Casino)Due to a combination of anatomical factors and the snugness of the fabric, the crotch and pudendal cleft may take on a resemblance to the forefoot of an even toed ungulate. Name this rather "exciting" occurance.

Points for just telling me where I can find all this, extra for naming every element and thence telling everyone you don't have much to do these days.

Question 1368: Saving the best

X died of pneumonia in 1910 at a train station, after falling ill when he left home in the middle of winter. His death came only days after gathering the nerve to abandon his family and wealth and take up the path of a wandering ascetic, a path that he had agonized over pursuing for decades. He had not been at the peak of health before leaving home; his wife and daughters were all actively engaged in caring for him daily. He had been speaking and writing of his own death in the days preceding his departure from home, but fell ill at the station not far from home.

The police tried to limit access to his funeral procession, but thousands of peasants lined the streets at his funeral. Still, some peasants were heard to say that, other than knowing that "some nobleman had died," they knew little else about X himself.

Identify X.

Answer: Leo Tolstoy
