Eight letter words

Postby Born_again » Jul 10th, 2008, 6:13 am

Let's try to up the ante a little by solving eight letter puzzles.

Guidelines: The previous poster will leave a proven jumble of 8 letters, that when rearranged will form a word. For example:
Born_again wrote:Solve: TOAST UKE


Respondent wrote:Solved: TOAST UKE = OUTSKATES
Solve: POO SPERS


Now, if Born_again actually used another word to form that anagram; such as STAKEOUT, then I think it would be fair for him to PM the respondent and award them with a GEEK :9923: , which the respondent can collect. The respondents next post could look like this:

Respondent wrote:Solved: POO SPERS = OPPOSERS
Solve: TOY PULSA

:9923: or:
:9923: :9923: :9923: etc.


I hope this will be a fun challenge, and all commonly used English words should be acceptable, including common nouns. Maybe we could insist on a 'GEEK' demerit for spelling errors or fabrications? Let's see....

CASTANET

Haha, for some reason I was only thinking of the word as a proper noun, rather than a noun... :triedtothink:

Solve: DREW SITE
Where oh where’d my body go?
Africa or Mexico?
Where or where’d my body go?
Where’d my body go?
Have you seen my ghost?
Staring at the ground?
Have you seen my ghost?

:dyinglaughing:

Yeah, I wasn't sure if I should solve it right away, or else give 50++ the benefit of the doubt and try to find another word for that one.......

:ohmygod: I've done enough scribble to totally cover 3 A4 sheets of paper! If I substitute the 'A' with an 'O' I can get cobblers and clobbers. I don't think my Oxford dictionary has ever had this much abuse in its lifetime! Two vowels and two 'B's' are totally rupturing my brain cell. :dyinglaughing:
