NEW GAME - MISSING LINK - A Creative Thinking Game of Associations

(NOTE: This thread is for THIS game ONLY.  All other games can be played here: http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=34043.0)

Rules:
1.  You need to figure out the ONE or TWO word Missing Link which connects two separate game words, word1--> Missing Link--> word2.

2.  The Missing Link must be somehow associated to word1 AND to word2.  (see examples below)

3.  Any member can guess the Missing Link by posting this:  link="Missing Link guess"?

4.  The Poster of the correct Missing Link gets to post the new word2 in the following format:
  • word1= "old word2"
  • word2= "OP's new word"
5.  The Poster of word2 is encouraged to give hints if members have difficulty finding the Missing Link (until it is so easy that a member gets it).

6.  In case the current OP of the riddle is offline or not responding, any logical Missing Link guess that is posted and then seconded
     by another member is good enough to win that riddle.  The OP member who thought of the link can CMIIW.  This way we don't have to wait.

7.  3MR=The 3 Minute Rule:  The member correctly guessing the Missing Link has 3 minutes to post word2, otherwise any member may post it in order to keep the game flowing.



This is not just a free flow association game, but rather, each pair of words is its own new, challenging riddle to be solved before continuing.

Example:   If Riddle#1 were "Sunday-->Superbowl-->cereal"   then   Riddle#2 could be "cereal-->spoon-->fork"
       In Riddle#1, if a member correctly guesses the Missing Link for word2 of "cereal", then "cereal" now becomes new word1 in Riddle#2.
       The member then thinks of a Missing Link to a new word2 and posts the new word2.   (The guessed link DOES NOT become word2.) 

Possibilities:
Word1Word2LinkLevel
cereal,fork-you eat cereal with a spoon, which is a utensil just like a fork (easy)
cereal,cow-you eat cereal with milk, which comes from a cow (easy)
cereal,soup-you eat cereal in a bowl, as you do soup (easy)
cereal,lane-you eat cereal in a bowl, and you bowl down a lane (moderate)
cereal,hear-cereal starts with "see", which is one of the 5 senses, as is hear (moderate)
cereal,bounce-cereal ends with "roll", which is an action like bounce (moderate)
cereal,trout-cereal sounds like "sole", which is a fish, like trout (hard)
cereal,celery-cereal is crunchy, just like celery (hard)

Ready?  I propose we start off with easy/moderate until members feel comfortable joining.

NOTE: Players agree to ignore any posts that do not comply with the rules, and instead, to refer those posters to the wiki.

I don't know Sport.  I was just speculating as to why he's not responding. 
I pressed 'notify' so my (old fashioned) blackberry chimes with an email when a new post comes in here. It's time to go about my business.
