Lynne and I were just pulling your leg, Ian... she just replied to you (no question) and i put a crossword clue to which the answer was...ridiculous! re: dick (ridic) u (you) lous(e)

So a thing might be involved...1,2,3...?
a person is involved... 1,2,3...?
is the person doing something to the thing? with the thing? addressing the thing? talking to the thing? talking about the thing?
is this a mondegreen?
just to get this out of the way... real life? or fiction?

So a thing might be involved...1,2,3...? One at a time
a person is involved... 1,2,3...? At least 3, maybe more
is the person doing something to the thing? Yes with the thing? And yes addressing the thing? talking to the thing? talking about the thing? No to rest
is this a mondegreen? No... what's a mondegreen?
just to get this out of the way... real life? This, unfortunately or fiction?

A mondegreen is a misheard lyric... many many examples, but seeing it's almost christmas... "Olive the other reindeer" instead of "all of the other reindeer" in that song about Rudolph... there's a whole lot about them out there on the net.... and they can be a good source of puzzles!

Are all three doing the same thing? together? all three using the object?
Is one of the three the speaker?
Is it relevant who the three are?
Is it an everyday object?

Ah.... I've heard some of those, but that's not what the puzzle is about...

Are all three doing the same thing? No together? all three using the object? No
Is one of the three the speaker? No.... the puzzle statement is actually my reaction to a situation
Is it relevant who the three are? Yesish... the three aren't specific people, but it would be helpful to find out about them.
Is it an everyday object? No

Ok...I acept that you are not historical.... you are present day (...unless I am communicating with a ghost!), but are you reviewing something of days of yore... and commenting on how ridiculous their assumptions/methods were? an example would be the medical theory of humours, or the flat earth theory...

but not a doctor so no to that one!

Are you at a lecture? museum? reading a book?

to be clear...you are commenting on something that has (factually) happened at some point in the past... an actual event? or a general method?

Another neglected puzzle... :(

*SPOILER*

That's ridiculous!

Recently there was a story on the news about a woman in Ontario who had to wait eight months to get a restraining order, and apparently several other people had to endure similar waiting times. If you can go for eight months without major incident, chances are you don't need a restraining order. However, if someone really does pose a danger to you, it is rediculous that you should have to wait so long to get a restraining order.
