musses sum?
#5: Kristen Vognild (kristen) on Feb 6, 2023 [SPOILER]
"bad math goblet" isn't a palindrome, though. :)
#6: Steve (StevieB) on Feb 6, 2023
Think we might need another clue...

Susan's guess is really good. 4 letters, then 5.

Kristen's on the right track. As the old Carmen Sandiego game said, "You're getting too close, gumshoe!"

I should have made it 2+2=5, instead of 1+1=3, to refer to 1984.

That thing isn't *quite* a goblet.

Thanks all for your continued guesses! I'll just post the solution tonight if nobody gets it. I think it'll be amusing.

Refinished 'Eins und Drei' In Snifter....so close!

If it were 1 + 1 = 10, I'd be tempted to go with 'Tini Binit :P

On the "Tini" theme, 1984 saw the launch of "Apple"(-tini) with their 1984/Orwellian ad during the Super Bowl. But Andrew's hint about 2+2=5 is particularly a reference to the Orwell novel 1984. (Sidenote: the room number of Smith's interrogation is 101) Maybe that helps someone else?

As it is, maybe Trope Port? Toni Pinot?

Emote Tome? Elate Tale? Slips Pils?

oh no! just realized Andrew said 4 THEN 5! that negates a fair number of my bad guesses :(

Greg got it! Well done!

Some of these guesses would be great for new puzzles.
