    2. Personage
    3. Constantinople
    4. Soldiers
    5. Jurisprudence <- This one was tricky! However, all of these became a lot easier once I realized they were probably all just one word ;)

    Do you mean the letters transposed? Transposing the words is not a very challenging task and gives nonsensical answers.


  12. RK | Founder | Profile

    Yes, we’re transposing the letters here, thanks.

    BarryT said: “3. Constantinople (It’s Istanbul now, not….)”


    Must…not…get…They Might Be Giants song…stuck…in…head…AAACK!


  16. RK | Founder | Profile

    Very good, these were a bit tougher than usual. Wasn’t sure how many might get the clue from the picture, but now that TMBG song has taken hold of my head too :!:


  17. Hendy | Profile

    1. parsimony
    2. personage
    3. Constantinople
    …but if you skip “not” and use “Cleon paints”; it is “clean points” (if he doesn’t paint it; it is a clean point)
    4. sore lids (as in crying a lot; I don’t think “solidiers” is as good for dire loss; in America we TRY to win wars outright; the true dire loss would be laying down our arms and facing our enemies with a lack of soldiers)
    5. jurisprudence


    Istanbul was Constantinople
    Now it’s Istanbul, not Constantinople
    Been a long time gone, Constantinople
    Now it’s Turkish delight on a moonlit night


    Every gal in Constantinople
    Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
    So if you’ve a date in Constantinople
    She’ll be waiting in Istanbul


    Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
    Why they changed it I can’t say
    People just liked it better that way


    So take me back to Constantinople
    No, you can’t go back to Constantinople
    Been a long time gone, Constantinople
    Why did Constantinople get the works?
    That’s nobody’s business but the Turks


    Istanbul (Istanbul)
