POP QUIZ: CONUNDRUMS (answers)

Unscrambled congratulations go out this week to Michelle B, who got an astounding… okay, not exactly astounding… she got a not-so-terrible… alright look, she got more than anyone else did, okay? Way to go Michelle.

Yeah, this was a tough quiz. I had more than one person send me an ‘I only got one’ email, and some of my most faithful players didn’t even respond. And, assuming you abided by my thirty-second rule, it was even tougher. Thanks to everyone who played.

1) UPOURPLAN = UNPOPULAR
2) WALDOBARK = BOARDWALK
3) THYOILIST = HOSTILITY
4) ROAMDFREE = FOREARMED
5) EMPTIKISS = SKIMPIEST
6) URBANCOIL = BINOCULAR
7) DIRTYNEST = DENTISTRY
8) FINDIMAGE = MAGNIFIED
9) TIMIVIPER = PRIMITIVE

On recent episodes of the show, a contestant solved “CURLIDUOS” as “LUDICROUS” in under two seconds, “VILASINGH” as “LAVISHING” in about a second and a half, and “INAPFORTY” as “PROFANITY” in under a single second. But just a couple episodes later, he failed to solve “DANUNITED” as “INUNDATED” at all. Happens to the best of us, I guess…

Thanks,
QM Bill
