Each set of paired of clues can be answered by two phrases that contain the ceNtral cluster of ING – with one SMALL CATCH. The familiar phrase of Answer 1 will become the new phrase of Answer 2 as soon as you swap the marginal clusters astride the ING-centre. Sounds confusing? Let’s try a few examples:
Runway/deforestation = landing strip/stripping land
Still stumped? Try this one: Fruit bat/duping Louie? = flying fox/foxing fly. (As you can see, no mixing is involved, and sometimes the second phrase will be a droll invention.) Enough blather. Let’s play –
- Butchery slab/breakwater role
- Bordello/mall mishap?
- Casino/real estate?
- Boxcars/selling bread
- Horse holder/mail strike?
- Cattle marker/Sunbeam
- Tearing strips off/stripping?
- Gridiron player/pro-series
