le marron cafard est caché - start guessing folks!

Tuchfrau said...

the chestnut cockroach is hidden?

Godroach is in a chestnut tree?

Godroach is in heaven all's right with the world?

The Godroach is disguised as a swan and is making crude advances at a girl named Leda.

The cockroach is a mere mortal cockroach and is going through gtg's garbage looking in vain for meat.

The cocroach is hopping on hot coals thrying to escape from a chestnut roaster.

Tuchfrau said...

The cockroach is Grot and bbb's dog.

Tuchfrau said...

Their chestnut coloured dog.

gtg said...

oh.i thought 'marron' meant 'crooked' or 'false'. stupid dictionary.

tuchfrau, you are hilar! i have stolen 'godroach' cos i love it - hope that is okay.

leda and godroach is fab.

gtg said...

my guess:

the godroach is THUMPING AROUND ABOVE MY HEAD!

grot said...

my nouveau dictionaire francais said 'brown' is marron, but babelfish thinks otherwise - who does one believe?

one of tf's weeird and wonderful guesses is on track

BBB said...

yee gods, what a cockroach!!!!

gtg said...

godroach is wandering round a dark maze, snorting its terrible snort and waving its terrible horns?

(and waiting a ball of thread, in case that is too obscure)

gtg said...

the cockroach is being tumbled in a popcorn machine at cinema at wooders.

Tuchfrau said...

But which one????????? Which guess???????? 'Tis cruel to punish my efforts with such ambiguity! It's my turn to demand a clue I think!

The cockroach is selling sausages at a roadside stall in Berlin, calling me to come and join it for the summer.

gtg said...

the godroach is a raccoon.

(i am trying to replicate each of your themes, tuchfrau. a slow and so far unsuccessful strategy.)

grot said...

well remember the sausages and glauwein (sp?) in the snowy streets of Bolzano, and gtg whinging the whole time because german cuisine wsa entirely based on speck bacon

yum yum

grot said...

how i love to watch youse squirm like sprayed insects

Godroach is aptly named - that is my next clue

Anonymous said...

The bloody cockroach is in St Catherine's head in Sienna

BBB

itchy fingers said...

hello, back in the game, a little rusty so be kind.

Godroach is giving the olive tree as a gift to the people of Athens in exchange for them naming the city 'Godroachia'

or luring the children of Hamlin away with his little pipe.

Or being exorcised from the body of a young fundamentalist Christian girl deep in the Bible belt.

Or devouring his children in a Goya painting.

grot said...

itchy, you are such an over-achiever!

i'm awaiting guesses from gtg and tf and jt and whoever else is reading this

Anonymous said...

The godroach is moving in mysterious ways throught the heavens aboard the comet Mc Naught.

BBB

gtg said...

godroach is a quaker in a nice wide hat.

if i ever find god i'm going to be a quaker. i've decided.

Tuchfrau said...

The godroach is Diana the huntress, stalking deer across the night sky.

itchy fingers said...

does that mean i'm not allowed another guess yet?
*pouts*

The Godroach is about to turn you into a pillar of salt because you looked back even though He told you not to.

That'll learn you.

gtg said...

godroach is curled up in the myer christmas windows (she is playing baby jesus this year).

grot said...

that was a compliment, itchy - take it graciously

some of you are close

next clue - godroach is not a christian

Tuchfrau said...

Godroach is Aphrodite, goddess of leeerve!
Or possibly Aprodite, Greek paediatric cardiologist who is in my German class. My money's on the first one though.

gtg said...

the godroach is inside a hand-held prayer wheel. she's getting dizzy.

gtg said...

godroach is a goat, being sacrificed on the steps of a kali temple.

Tuchfrau said...

I demand a clue. I think it's only fair.

grot said...

hey, i did put in a clue yesterday, but it's not here!

spooky thing is, it was a bit blasphemous, so maybe godroach deleted it!

godroach is not a god, i said yesterday, so stop praying to it

but the mythology track is the right one

BBB said...

The godroach is in the Marnie wall on the Mt Blacwood road.
But wait that's not non-Christian religious. I like it anyway.

gtg said...

the godroach is eating pomegrante seeds.

gtg said...

the godroach is asking travellers tricky questions. then destroying them.

gtg said...

we had best solve this soon as we've Gone Off The Page!

BBB said...

Godroach be gone, indeed.
Fabby blog!!!!!!

Yes we have gone off the page and it's hard to find now.

next guess:
The godroach is on the horn of a Buddhist monk in Ladakh, or maybe in the pointy hat, or in one of their little bells. Or in the yak butter tea - what a taste that was.

grot said...

gtg is closest

yes, hide the godroach indeed - bury it in the blog, but that's not the answer

itchy fingers said...

argh! i guessed yeserday before the dissappearance but now it's gone! and i can't remember what it was.

um, the godroach is the Wolf, waiting for little girls to wander off the path and into his sexually charged jaws?

Tuchfrau said...

The godroach is in the eyesocket of a blinded cyclops.

The word for verificaiton is zhanctf - sounds like the surname of one of my students.

grot said...

tf is again very close

but in reality, the godroach is crawling in the back legs of gtg's celebrity blog

gtg said...

the cockroach has been turned into a tree.

btw, i highly recommend trying the disabled version of the word verification (if you have fast inty). there is a virtual person saying numbers over the top of a real person gabbling nonsense. very dada.

Tuchfrau said...

I don't understand that clue. If it is a clue?

grot said...

tf, the clue is that you are again very close with your cyclops guess

the other bit was pointing out how we had been relegated to the archives, but gtg ahs fixed that now

BBB said...

The godroach is in the golden fleece?
or
The godroach is in the ear of the collosus of Rhodes
or
The godroach is hiding in the trojan horse.

itchy fingers said...

the godroach has been lost at sea for seven years because he was rude to Poseidon.

or, he is gazing at himself in a pool and is slowly starving to death.

or, he has just been sent a lovely dress from Medea, isn't she nice and not at all vindictive like you would expect.

grot said...

very close, bbb and itchy

itchy fingers said...

The Godroach is Helen, the most beautiful adulteress ever?

The Godroach is duelling with Achilles?

Um, the Godroach has been turned into a pig by that nasty witch along with the rest of Odysseus' crew?

BBB said...

The world of Greek mythology is vast.
Where could the godroach be?

On the ball of string in the maze - bugger I see that gtg has already been there.

Sitting listening to the sirens calling to Odysseus

Tuchfrau said...

The godroach is a siren. Or possibly the scylla.

grot said...

well, here's a pickle - both bbb and tuchfrau are ALMOST right! itchyfingers is close also, but not close enough

Volume XIX of "Le Cafard Cache" says there must now be a tie-breaker.

so, bbb and tuchfrau, the Godroach is indeed on Odysseussss's boat as it tangles with the sirens, but you must specify EGGSACTLY where s/he is to win

BBB said...

No Grotty, I'm sorry to disagree with you, but the godroach is not quite on Odysseus' boat. S/he is riding the bow wave, on a surfboard.

itchy fingers said...

this game is not so fun when you aren't allowed to guess anymore. 'specially as I now have all the time in the world to think of cockroach infested mythology.

bet i know where it is!

gtg said...

yes, i agree. wanna boycot, itchy?

itchy fingers said...

yes! we can have our own game.
wanna hide it? or shall i?

tuchfrau said...

tied to the mast listening to the sirensong.

tuchfrau said...

but then bbb already guessed that. On deck stuffing herbs in the crew's ears. Or in a crew member's ear haviong hitched a ride in on a herb.

BBB said...

i'm glad to see that tuchfrau and i are staying on the high moral ground and not getting upset by gtg and itchy 'spitting it out', just cos they're losers!

BBB said...

The godroach has her liitle feelers stuffed into her ears so she doesn't hear the sirens?

Actually, I'm with tuchfrau on this one. i reckon she's in the ear of one of the crew to help prevent him hearing the sirens' call.

itchy fingers said...

i reckon the godroach is chewing through Odysseus' ropes in the hopes he will get free and drown and end the whole saga early.

(it's hide the cockroach anarchy! no rules! damn the man! etc)

Tuchfrau said...

I like your stance itchy. It was after all Itchy's overachievement that inspired me and BBB to such dizzy heights of accuracy and perspicaciousness. She is the wind beneath our feelers!

grot said...

**le marron cafard est fonde**

u lot are insane!

but the godroach remains calm and enlightened, as she is stuffed headfirst into a crew member's ear (they ran out of tree sap), so can't be corrupted by the sirens' song

therefore TUCHFRAU IS THE WINNER!... again

she also wins a supplementary prize (supplied by gtg) for her line that itchy is 'the wind beneath our feelers'

such a lovely image of itchy huffing and puffing as tf and bbb sail above, shouting out guesses in cockroachic - if only i could draw

that is all i have to say

i think..

yes it is


i have nothing more to say at this time

Tuchfrau said...

thangyouverymuch! Come play on my blog...

BBB said...

Well done to the tuchfrau.
Go girl!

gtg said...

yay tuchfrau!
