Eight letter words

Post by Born_again »

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?

: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:
