On the road for the next few days, researching and rabbiting. In the meantime, a conundrum to keep the new week ticking: Can you reveal a two-worded animal that contains all five vowels once, on top of its closing Y?
(And while you’re thinking along alphabetical lines, here’s Conundrum 2: What two-worded fitting common to all cars contains the five vowels once only, despite being only eight letters long?)
Two more morsels for your consideration, so-so clues this time. I rate both offerings below as well below par. One, do you agree? And two, who can devise the best clue for either answer?
Unconvincing presentation that may have strings attached = PUPPETRY [Telegraph?]
Part of US seen by many on stage = OKLAHOMA [Times crossword book]
And presuming I’m still punching in the Times Tally (stymied last week by wartime slang for a canteen), then here’s the place to join the quest, or share the best of British and other puzzles.
