Brain Teasers from a Word Perfect Magazine

Now, I may have to do thids in HTML and not Word Perfect and I don't even have WP on this desktop (have it on my laptop but I don't feel like moving from one puter to another).

You have to interpret each of thrdr. For example, the first one is:

LIP
Tiptoe
LIP

The answer is Tiptoe Through the Tulips.

You have to think about grammer and word play. OK? Got it?

I'll add more as I go along - which may be tough since they need an editor, preferably a Word Processor and I am going to have to try them with bare bones HTML. Here goes....

CyberKitten
March 4th, 2007, 05:29 PM
Well, if you look at the top one - Tiptoe Through the Tulips, think of word play

and the tulips are between the word LIP. Tiptoe is in the middle so you are tiptoeing through the tulips?

Does that help?

CyberKitten
March 4th, 2007, 05:30 PM
Try the 2nd one- think of the no of times feet is there - that is my hint, lol

Iknow, I get addicted to this stuff too.

Yep,. yep- yo0ui are GOOD!!! (when I 1st saw misunderstanding, I thought you meant you misunderstood, duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Time for me to take a break too - and I might se if I can just scan the image, it would be faster!)
And sorry for misunderstanding you!! You are excellent at word play!! I can see why you would be addicted, lol

Did we do the pineapple one - think that is all that's left - except for other ones in older Word perfect magazines which I can look up or have a Resident or intern look up (How that's that for a great job at work, lol?).

Do you want ,me to look in some of the other old Word Perfect and puzzle books I have here - usually use them in doin strategic planning or Hospital and med staff Board retreat stuff- just as an opener to make sure everyone is awake, lol (esp me - I am so NOT a morning person!!)

This issue has a cute macros for ppl to try - if anyone is into that. (This is old (1994 which is ancient in computer terms) but the c\challenge is to create a macro that creates an 8 by 8 checkerboard with alternate squares shaded. The macros must use a FOR loop or a FORNEXT loop to shade the cells/.
