Answers to Puzzle Contest (from the winner):
"1. mummy (mum)
2. vampire (umpire, empire)
3. pumpkin (pump, kin)
4. Michael Myers (Halloween movies, Mike
5. Dracula (card, impaler)"
For #5 the "impaler" was more specifically Vlad the Impaler. #4 was the most commonly missed, I think moreso from non-U.S. readers who may not be as familiar with the Halloween movies and funnyman Mike Myers.
