Every Wednesday I will post a mind puzzle. That gives you one week to try and figure it out. [If you think you have the answer, message it to][FireGypsy]. Good luck everyone! And please don't cheat!
The Winners will receive a banner for their house!

Have fun with this one!

This puzzle is a pair of words that can have their initial sounds switched to form new words. The pairs need to sound the same, not necessarily be spelled the same (power saw & sour paw, horse cart & coarse heart). There may sometimes be one or two connecting words (kick the stone & stick the cone, king of the rats & ring of the cats). Given the following definitions, what are the answers?

1) overweight dam builder & symptom of a sick flying mammal
2) bottom of the ocean & an insect-bitten dog has this
3) a cooking utensil & a nosy admirer
4) the person in charge of clocks and watches & the result of exposing silent actors to the sun

2006-07-21 [Eyes of the Reaper]: *hugs [Hedda]* Ish okies. :)

2006-07-21 [FireGypsy]: lol =) *hugs* [Hedda]

2006-07-21 [Tear]: Diminutive? LAWL! That was one of the first I got. I am still not entering though for some reason.

2006-07-21 [FireGypsy]: lol why?

2006-07-21 [69_playboy girl_69]: I totaly love i know im just a girl but if u grew up with a brow u know what i

2006-07-22 [Tear]: I have an unfair advantage of me working with cars all the time. Better to let the kids have their fun, and not steal their prize.

2006-07-22 [FireGypsy]: awe =) your a good man!

2006-07-22 [Tear]: I try.

2006-07-22 [angel of happiness]: i have 3 so far. i dont know nothing about cars.

2006-07-23 [FireGypsy]: cmon keep guessing people!

2006-07-23 [Blood Moon Wolf]: It's hard!!!! Can't think!!!!

2006-07-23 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Are we allowed to guess more than once?

2006-07-24 [FireGypsy]: Yes =) But im thinking of changing it to just one try. because too many people are asking "which one is wrong" "is this right" and i cant answer that and they dont understand that its cheating.

2006-07-24 [wheelsy]: Lies!

2006-07-24 [Kaotik]: i just need # 10

2006-07-24 [Tear]: I think that for most people that 4 and 6 would be the hardest to answer.

2006-07-24 [Blood Moon Wolf]: # 6, and 10...>_<

2006-07-24 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Number 10 was the hardest for me...

2006-07-24 [Blood Moon Wolf]: Yeah...I can see why!!!

2006-07-24 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Yeah... It was a pain in the butt.

2006-07-24 [Blood Moon Wolf]: *Sighs* Darn...I'm going crazy over this!!!

2006-07-24 [angel of happiness]: i got six of then now.But it is toohard right now. i am going keep trying until i get everyone of then.

2006-07-24 [FireGypsy]: =)

2006-07-25 [mr lonely]: i finally got all of them im so happy it was hard

2006-07-25 [Hedda]: After some investigation I'm pretty sure that the answer on all questions should be "car".

2006-07-25 [FireGypsy]: *smacks head* At least it was closer than your last answer =)

2006-07-25 [Kaotik]: my dad owns a car shop and im rteally into cars so thats why i know so much although i wish i knew more

2006-07-25 [tears in bleed]: it hard. i got one of those

2006-07-26 [Angel of Ice]: I only know one of the answers..

2006-07-26 [Tear]: And again, I already have them all, el oh el. I love these games. It amuses me.

2006-07-26 [skullhead]: :p ahhh WTF ahhhh! I got one -_- and I think its the same you did

2006-07-26 [Tear]: The top three on the left side are the easiest.

2006-07-26 [FireGypsy]: =)

2006-07-26 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Are we able to get a trophy for this one too if we won the last one?

2006-07-26 [FireGypsy]: yes, but you wont get another trophy, i will just put the weeks youve won under it =)

2006-07-26 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Alrighty! :) Thank you!

2006-07-26 [FireGypsy]: no prob =)

2006-07-26 [Bookwyrm]: Woo! Something I actually have knowledge of. XD

2006-07-26 [Eyes of the Reaper]: The right column is proving difficult.

2006-07-27 [Bookwyrm]: Mwuahaha ::says nothing:: XD

2006-07-28 [Cosmo]: Ha ha, these are fun. so do we get a badge for solving them?

2006-07-28 [Bookwyrm]: "The Winners will receive a trophy for their house!" <--Excerpt from top of page.

2006-07-28 [Cosmo]: cool...     we just message the writer?   O.o        

2006-07-28 [Bookwyrm]: "[If you think you have the answer, message it to][FireGypsy]." <-- Again...excerpt from top of page.

2006-07-28 [Cosmo]: well, yes...   I was just checking.

2006-07-28 [Bookwyrm]: XD Well just pointing it out that it answered both questions at the top of the page...:P

2006-07-28 [Cosmo]: ok. these are fun. took me about fifteen minutes to get them all.  first five i got right of the bat, then the others took some actual precious thought. ha ha. damn, that sounded arrogant. many sorries.

2006-07-28 [Bookwyrm]: ::nods:: I got most of them right off the bat, a few of them stumped me for a while though. And don't apologize. ^-^ No reason to.

2006-07-28 [FireGypsy]: ooh, but you missed one [Cosmo] =)

2006-07-28 [bribri]: grr i only know 4 of them...

2006-07-29 [Cosmo]: hrm... I bet it's one of those last three on the right.

2006-07-29 [Cosmo]: OH...     I know wich one it is. I still cant get it though...    well, atleast I thought my answer made sense...

2006-07-29 [FireGypsy]: everyone go vote Design A Plot Voting mine is on My Plot

2006-07-29 [Angel of Ice]: I know four...

2006-07-29 [Eyes of the Reaper]: I have (I hope) all but the one in the lower-right-hand corner.

2006-07-30 [Angel of Ice]: This is hard...

2006-07-30 [wheelsy]: It was easier then last weeks.

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Last weeks wasn't as hard for me, then again my brother and dad and step-dad all work with or love cars...

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: Yeah see, I knew nothing about cars - but this one I got right. ^-^

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Awesome!

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: ::grins:: I felt nostalgic too. XD I remember doing these puzzles in sixth grade. God that seems so long ago. XD I'm too young to be nostalgic!

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: lol I've never done these except on my own on shows like Crashbox on HBO Family... XD God... but yeah, I'm having probs with that last one... I need to sit there and stare at it for a while then I'll get it...

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: The only one I had real problems with was the second one on the right. It stumped me for a bit. XD We had a teacher in sixth grade who thought these were so much fun (she really just liked to humilate us when we were wrong). So yeah, it made me think of her. XD

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: lol Yeah, I had a teacher in fourth grade that was like that.

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: Oh! That reminds me of a teacher I had in first grade that gave me a zero on a 20+ page packet because I forgot to colour ONE page. We had one night to do it all. I accidentally skipped over one page and she failed me on the whole packet...and it was a test grade! I flipped out on her...I mean honestly...colouring...Grrr...

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: In first grade too! Oh my god! *hugs* o.o My parents would've had her fired.

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: XD It's scarred me for life! I'll never colour again! XD Nah, it really upset me then though. I've always been the kid that must have all A+'s in all classes or I'd panic. So that really made me mad. My mom was upset but not upset enough to do anything about it, which is strange for her because she looks for fights normally. XD Oh, and thank you for the hug. ^-^ ::hugs back::

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: ^-^ No prob mah sexy-alien sissy. XD

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: XD ::hides:: Can't let the government know we know, you know? Hear that?! Our computers are bugged! With every keystroke they're recording our fingerprints and watching every word we type! It's a conspiracy I tell you!

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: And this whole "Elfpack" thing is really just a big facade! They're pulling us into their trap...I know it...

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: *nods and looks around, paranoid* o.o And my room... do the white, squishy walls mean anything?

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: It means you can run into them without hurting yourself! It irritates your neighbors, and the government people too. I do it all the time. ^-^

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: That, or singing REAL loud...especially "row, row, row, your boat"...they hate that. XD

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: *nod* And the moving white things with black lenses that seem to follow me... those too? XD

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: I hate those -.- ::glares at them:: I can't get them to of these days ::shakes fist in the air:: one of these days!!

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: lol XD We enjoy spamming together don't we...

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: ::grins:: Yeah we do...XD We're turrible spammers when put together. And yes, I said turrible.

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: lol We should get badges for spamming without meaning to... lol

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: XD I don't think they encourage spammage. XD

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: So? XD [Stephen] got a badge for posting over 500 spam messages in a day on elf12... lol

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: XD Well you never know then...XD

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: lmfao Yeah, I know. Crazy, huh?

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: Not as crazy as the government...<.<.....>.>

2006-07-30 [Eyes of the Reaper]: O.O Amen to that, sista'! lol

2006-07-30 [Bookwyrm]: XD!

2006-07-31 [Angel of Ice]: hhmmmmmm... five down....

2006-08-02 [Cosmo]: HA HA, you two are funny...    damn that second one on the right...        It's just not coming...           gahhhh

2006-08-02 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Still got that last one... -.-

2006-08-02 [Pandora♥xcore]: i'll drive myself nuts trying to figure it out then when I know the answer i'll just be like ohhh! that is so obvious! XD

2006-08-05 [Pandora♥xcore]: lol well I think I got them...

2006-08-09 [Tear]: Where do you come up with these things? Sheesh. I got the first, but the second one confused the hell out of me.

2006-08-09 [Bookwyrm]: ::grins and rocks back and forth on 'er heels::

2006-08-09 [FireGypsy]: lol!

2006-08-09 [Bookwyrm]: Hah! I was right! T_T You made me confused and think I got something wrong but I double-checked! ::cackles:: And after I delivered your trophy!! ::shakes head:: Shamefulness!! SHAME!!

2006-08-09 [Pandora♥xcore]: lol

2006-08-09 [FireGypsy]: Lol I was on the phone XD

2006-08-09 [Pandora♥xcore]: im no good at math v.v

2006-08-09 [Bookwyrm]: I suck at math too, pretty much. But it helps to have calculators and word problems. I like words. Words make everything easier. ^-^ Well...not everything...T_T

2006-08-09 [Pandora♥xcore]: lmao

2006-08-09 [Bookwyrm]: ::looks at [FireGypsy]:: Your pleas fall upon deaf ears yon pretty one! I shan't hear another note of your apologetic song! ::giggles and hides::

2006-08-09 [FireGypsy]: lol! XD

2006-08-09 [Pandora♥xcore]: lol

2006-08-09 [Bookwyrm]: ::smiles:: You have to laugh to keep from cryin'. ^_^ Never have truer words been spoken, at least in my opinion. ^-^

2006-08-09 [FireGypsy]: =(^_^)=

2006-08-19 [FireGypsy]: Im letting this one go for another week, because I havent had many attempts. Keep trying guys! And the second round for Design A Plot Voting has begun! You should all go vote because we need voters!

2006-08-19 [Bookwyrm]: Do you know if I ever got my privs? (If I'm not getting them, that's fine, I was just sort of wondering about that)..

2006-08-19 [FireGypsy]: I actually messaged [Hedda] about it yesterday, I thought you got them, but then I checked, and messaged him again.

2006-08-19 [Bookwyrm]: Okay, if I did I didn't get any message about it. I didn't want to change my page and them not work so yeah, I was just wondering. XD It's not that big of a deal. ^___^

2006-08-19 [FireGypsy]: ^_^ dont worry, you will get it!

2006-08-19 [Bookwyrm]: ::smiles and hugs:: Thank you! ^__^ Like I said, it's not that big of a deal. I need to donate to Elfpack anyway and "earn" my privs. One of these days I will, once I get a job. XD

2006-08-19 [Eyes of the Reaper]: I donated... but to someone else's account... v.v *sighs*

2006-08-19 [FireGypsy]: *hugs* =(^-^)=

2006-08-19 [Bookwyrm]: ::hugs her sis:: Awww T___T

2006-08-19 [FireGypsy]: Awe! Howd that happen?

2006-08-19 [Eyes of the Reaper]: It was a gift. Her parents argue and would never do anything online, so, I said that once I saved up twelve dollars (which is PRETTY damn hard for me since I have no job or allowance), I would give it to my dad to donate with his card... That's why [Raiyr] has the stuff in her house...

2006-08-19 [FireGypsy]: oooooooooooohhhhhh!

2006-08-19 [Bookwyrm]: Awwww ^___^ That was really sweet of you!!

2006-08-19 [Eyes of the Reaper]: *nod* I hope she likes it... the only thing is: she's thinking about leaving EP totally... v.v

2006-08-19 [FireGypsy]: Awe =(

2006-08-19 [Bookwyrm]: T___T That's not good!

2006-08-19 [Eyes of the Reaper]: Oh well... I'll just try and raise more for myself... x.x

2006-08-19 [Pandora♥xcore]: I can't figure this out v.v

2006-08-20 [Angel of Ice]: This is hard...

2006-09-04 [SnazzyChazzy]: way hard

2006-09-04 [FireGypsy]: Yeah I have to change it soon, ive been a bit behind, but I was hoping more people would give it a go!

2006-09-04 [Pandora♥xcore]: sorry I couldn't figure it out XD

2006-09-05 [FireGypsy]: Okay Ive delayed long enough! Congrats to the people who got the last one!

2006-09-05 [Bookwyrm]: Yay! New puzzle! ^_____^

2006-09-05 [Eyes of the Reaper]: The first scrambled word is hard. o.o

2006-09-05 [Bookwyrm]: Yeah it got me for a sec too. T___T

2006-09-05 [Eyes of the Reaper]: I still don't know it... I tried looking it up and the site said that no word exsists with those letters...

2006-09-05 [FireGypsy]: No cheating ^-^

2006-09-05 [Bookwyrm]: XD Believe me there's a word. ^^

2006-09-05 [Eyes of the Reaper]: lol I know, I gave up on getting help from others. I went to a dictionary website.

2006-09-05 [Eyes of the Reaper]: AHHHHH! I figured it out! *cackles maniacally* O.o' I'm such an idiot for not noticing it right off the bat... -.-

2006-09-05 [Angel of Ice]: Okay...I know the answers from last week are posted...but the answers from only the first one were posted..unless the second part is part of the first one, then I'm just being stupid...

2006-09-05 [FireGypsy]: I havent grabbed the sencond answer yet....gotta look for it again lol! So it will be up shortly.

2006-09-05 [Angel of Ice]: Aaah...Okay :D

2006-09-05 [FireGypsy]: ^-^

2006-09-23 [FireGypsy]: I am draggin this riddle out another week. I still dont have a winner qualified for the Donor Privs, which means you get cool colours for your house! So cmon give it a try!!

2006-10-14 [Monika]: I didn't know if we were supose to send you a message or just write it here. So I'll send it to you. I'd participate in this if it got started up again.

2006-10-14 [FireGypsy]: Send me a message. And it is started. I post puzzles every week or two, depending on the theme, how difficult it is, or how many people participate.

2006-10-14 [Monika]: So is the on on this page now the one to figure out?

2006-10-14 [Kaos101]: yes

2006-11-17 [wheelsy]: Woah Sasha, -Pulls her of [skullhead]-.

2006-11-18 [Master Of Duct Tape]: ive won twice and i never got donor privs!!

2006-11-18 [FireGypsy]: Donor privs was only for one special puzzle, and only for the first person to get it, which you were not...

2006-11-18 [Kaos101]: who did get it, Sasha?

2006-11-18 [FireGypsy]: [Bookwyrm] and [skullhead] won the other one ^_^

2006-11-18 [skullhead]: yea! :P

2007-01-02 [Hedda]: It shows the correct time pretty often.

2007-01-02 [FireGypsy]: The hour hand skips hours ^_^ It is only in it's correct place at an o' clock ^_^

2007-04-17 [~sminx~]: i think i've figured out the first one but i cant work out the other three!!! :S grrr

2007-05-02 [Cosmo]: oh. Hey, didn't I win a couple of the puzzles a long time ago? I checked the winners page, and I'm not on any of the ones I figured out.

2007-05-03 [FireGypsy]: Yes you figured out one, but it is not on the winners list. Hmmm. Why Would I not put that question up? Argh!
