Weekly Quiz #3: 30 September – 5 October 2013

Weekly Quiz 3:   September 30 – October 5, 2013

The Theme: Canon word scrambles. Rework the letter combinations in each question to discover a Canonical quote directly from the text and identify the story. The last question (#10) asks you to solve the scramble and then interpret the answer Canonically (just for fun).

Answers to be submitted by 12 Noon (Pacific), Saturday, October 5, 2013 via email to buttons@johnhwatsonsociety.com.

If you discover Buttons has left out a letter or added one too many, have pity and answer it anyway as they are fairly self-evident even with the odd error.  This one required an extra pint or two.

  1. Hi, Buttons, You outdid yourself this time. Is there some little trick to this, such you have put a hint in each question or turn one of the real words backwards, etc??
    Cheers, Daisy

    1. Dear Daisy et al…

      Nope! Pretty straight-forward… use the letters (forget the words, or semi-words, themselves) and rearrange them to form the words of a quote from the text… for instance:

      tom geft his aoea = the game is afoot
