Sunday Puzzle: Anagram All The Way
On-air challenge: I'm going to give you some words. Anagram each one to make a new word. And as a help, the first three letters of my word will be the first three letters of your answer.
Ex. Sublet --> Subtle
6. Trained (hyph.)
Last week's challenge:This challenge came from listener Patrick Berry, of Jasper, Ala. Think of a well-known European city in seven letters. If you remove the third letter, you'll get a two-word phrase describing what you must do to win a race. If instead you remove the fourth letter, you'll get a two-word phrase describing what you can't do to win a race. What's the city?
Challenge answers:Belfast (Northern Ireland) --> Be fast, be last
Winner:Rob Olmstead of Ruskin, Fla.
This week's challenge:This week's challenge comes from listener Scott Weiss, of Walkersville, Md. Think of a familiar three-word name of something. The first word in that name is a number. Let's call that number "x." The last "x" letters of the second word of the name are a French translation of the third word. What's the name?
