Well if you were the host, what would you have said?

The party's over?

Is this statement in response to what you/ somebody else said as the host of something?

Is the aim of the puzzle to figure out what the host said?

The party's over? You might have said that but I think you will see why you would more likely have said "_"

Is this statement in response to what you/ somebody else said as the host of something? In actuality, somebody else

Is the aim of the puzzle to figure out what the host said? Yes (or rather what we think would have been logical and apt)

Was the host hosting
- a party?
- some guests?
- a show?

Is the host one person? male? female? adult?

Was the host hosting
- a party? Yes
- some guests? Yes
- a show?

Is the host one person? male? female? adult? I would assume it was a married couple and their daughter

Is it relevant who among the three made the statement? Was it the behaviour of one/more of the guests that prompted him/her to say something?
Was it a birthday party? the daughter's?

Is it relevant who among the three made the statement?
No - anyone or more of them could have made the statement. And we don't know for sure that they actually made this statement but as you will see, it would be the most apt thing to have said.

Was it the behaviour of one/more of the guests that prompted him/her to say something? Yes

Was it a birthday party? No
the daughter's? It was partly for the daughter

Is it important to find the reason for the party? Did the guest/s in question make some remark? Could we call the hosts Johnsons? How many of the guests/ guests' family are relevant?

Said the name of his ex-girlfriend when asked to name his fiancee? But they can't break the engagement for that! :)

Inappropriate as gross? or rather rude?

Was it something physical? Did he act towards his fiancée? her mother? father?

If he was just a family friend, could it still have happened?

Was his 'inappropriate behaviour' simply what he did during the party? Was was some earlier truth brought to light?

So... did he do something with his body which you would normally not do when in a company?

Was there any foul odour? sound?


I assume that we have established that he hadn't SAID anything relevant, haven't we?

Did his action reflect badly on his character? His beliefs? Belied what the J's had been thinking of him?
