Is it allowed to add the possessive apostrophe-'s' to a word? If so then:

Quote:
33. Time, Head, Captain
could be 'Bed'

Bed-time, bed-head, captain's bed (a type of bed with drawers underneath it)

33 is neither bed nor crunch. Neither captain's bed nor head crunch quite works for me. You'll know when you get this one.

I will confess to referencing things that perhaps not everyone has heard of with some of mine, so I encourage checking potential answers with a search engine if you aren't sure if something exists.

Is 35 key?

13. Rain, Body, Milk
22. Super, Folk, Show
24. Major, Scales, Knowledge
27. By, In, Ty
29. Home, Music, Monte
30. Uncle, Red, Puppets
32. Baby, Slave, Donald
33. Time, Head, Captain
34. Good, Old, Socks
35. Man, Base, Minor

And today's new ones!

36. box, blood, bomb
37. cut, off, coffee

Welcome back, Pensta and thread

Thanks, Ed!

38 and 40 are correct! Our Town was originally a play by Thornton Wilder, and I'm familiar with 'cow town' to refer to any city with more livestock than people.

Leaving us with:

22. Super, Folk, Show
24. Major, Scales, Knowledge
33. Time, Head, Captain
34. Good, Old, Socks
37. Cut, Off, Coffee
39. Rusted, Beer, Canal

Since it's been so long with #13, I'm just going to give the answer, also because it was one of my better ones and I want to show off. The answer is... chocolate! Milk chocolate, body chocolate, and Chocolate Rain, the last of which is a song that is said to be the most watched song on the Internet.

Based on the hint I'd guess "General" but I've never heard of "general scales" so yah, a pretty random guess, not really "I've solved it!"

This one might be easy, I'm not sure:

40: Rabbit, Bowl, Buggy

This one probably is regional, so might be harder:

41: Friendly, Sleeping, Tiger,

De-edo sud tovouk General Scales!

For those of you who are lost on this, General Scales was the villain in Star Fox Adventures.

Thus I find it hilarious that there was an actual Major General Robert H. Scales in the U.S. Army.

24 is solved, leaving:

Giant Tiger is a chain of discount retail stores.
