Psst kids - still time to grab some nose clippers for Dad. Or make a macaroni picture. Or maybe buy a copy of this weird riddle book everyone is talking about...
Or play a Pa puzzle online. For this is this Friday's folly, piercing any word with PA to make a new word, and then clueing the combo as one entity. For example, an obvious shelter is a PATENT TENT, while a split carer is a RENT PARENT.
As you can see, the PA-word can be first or second, depending on which sequence gives you more options. Without letter numbering, see if you ID the pairs that satisfy these clues:
DA1 - Belting old singer
DA2 - Cardinal Pell?
DA3 - Diet?
DA4 - Robust wire
DA5 - "A soothing bath is a hassle to prepare...."
As a comical diversion, bung PA into any old word, or name, or title, and give us the new definition:
WAPATCH - Kimberley
PASTARCH - Spaghetti with extra carbs
ENTERTAIPAN - Antivenene laboratory
FRANK SPAINATRA - American answer to Julio Iglesias
THE PALEGO MOVIE - Insipid gamer doco from Japan
Have fun with either one - naming & numbering clues, and sharing the creative stuff. Oh, and have a good one pops.
