Q: Paint 21 Squares of a 7×7 Board Without Forming a Rectangle

Paint $21$ of the $49$ squares of a $7 \times 7$ board so that no four painted squares form the four corners of a rectangle.

Q: New published work denied brewski robbery

PaulaCryptic crossword answer is ‘hold up’ but why? Not understanding where this answer is coming from in the clue. Synonyms for brewski? Work can be represented by ‘op’ Can’t see it!

I think it’s an anagram of “published work” subtracting a synonym of “brewski”, definition [robbery]
But on mobile right now so can’t post answers easily
Actually it’s just the letters of brewski

"return detailed" is still a mystery... can't see how either "some synonym of return minus last letter" or "some synonym of detailed backwards" gives anything useful

Q: How to rephrase a sign text with a limited alphabet, but retain the meaning and humor?

JoshDMI am creating a goofy sign for a pool using a vinyl letter set, which contains a limited alphabet of upper and lower case letters: AAABBBCCDDEEEFFGGHHIIIJJKKLLMMNNOOOPPQRRRSSSTTUUVVWWXXYYZZ aaabbccddeeeffgghhiiijjkklllmmnnnoooppqrrrsssttuuvvwwxxyyzz I have run out of 'e'; I am flexible on capi...

@Sphinx this isn’t a puzzle. Even if it was, it’s entirely too broad and too subjective.

@jafe Yet still he somehow gets more upvotes
In any case, I'm more concerned with the weather outside
which is surprisingly nice, so I'm going for a walk - toodles~

Too bored to make this an actual riddle, but here it is:
SCRAMBLED
scram - get out
scramble - in football
ambled - walked
bled - seeped
ramble (infix) - talk
 
cram - to stuff
 
Avi
aha
that would work too
My prefix in football
My prefix's prefix is mean
My suffix went on and on
My suffix's suffix walked away
My suffix's suffix's suffix seeped
My infix is stuff
My infix's infix is the goat
My infix's infix's infix is in the morning
 
Avi
The suffix of the prefix of my prefix is my infix's infix
yes
I see that and it is funny
My prefix is in football
My prefix's prefix is mean
My suffix went on and on
My suffix's suffix walked away
My suffix's suffix's suffix seeped
My infix is stuff
My infix's infix is the goat
My infix's infix's infix is in the morning
^ but this all could be the text of the puzzle
 
9:41 PM
maybe return detailed is ASC(-end)?
de-tailed -> tail removed -> "end" removed? quite a stretch though
now that i wrote it out i realize "ascend" isn't a terribly good match for "return" either
