I must admit, I’ve seen that one before…


I thought it was a bit on the easy side.


Some anagrams are almost too good to be true. The letters in the capitalized words or phrases can be rearranged in delightful ways to fill the gaps!

e.g. Is my lovely _____ really a WOMAN HITLER?
Answer: mother-in-law

  1. The _____ Church can be BEST IN PRAYER.

  2. The school bully gave his victim NINE THUMPS as a _____.

  3. Someone with BAD CREDIT can still manage to pay with a _____.

  4. If you missed it last time, keep waiting, for _____ SHALL YET COME!

  5. Perhaps because _____ could be a NICE SILKY WOMAN, a president fell for her!


  1. Presbyterian
  2. Punishment
  3. Debit Card
  4. Halley’s Comet
  5. Monica Lewinsky[/details]

I love anagrams!

Which one of the following words does not belong with the other six?



Mishap is the misfit.

The other six words all contain the ‘sh’ sound - which is spelled in nine different ways!

Ironically, the word which does contain -sh- is not pronounced ‘sh’![/details]


mishap (no “sh” sound)

I’m not going to answer any more to give someone else a chance.


Correct and you can’t answer anymore anyway. I have run out for now!


[details=Native American or Inuit?]

Do you see the Native American wearing a headdress, or the Inuit wearing a fluffy coat and entering an igloo?[/details]

I see



I do too! It isn’t hard at all. :laughing:


I saw the native American, but when I read the hidden text, I was able to see both.


I only see the Indian, with one serious schnoz :slight_smile:
