Today I was shown several ditloids, most were pretty easy but there were 3 I couldn't get. A ditloid for anyone who doesn't know, is an abbreviation of (usually) a saying. For example: 13IABD = 13 in a baker's dozen, or 5FOAH = 5 fingers on a hand. The first three of the following I couldn't get, and the rest are just for fun-
2 by 2 the animals walked onto the ark...
6WOHTE = 6 wives of Henry the Eighth
Thanks guys, would never have been able to get any of them. Anyone want to try the other four, they're a lot easier than the first few.
5. I can never remember the names of all seven....
6. ... see how they run.
#7 = 100 years is a century
to be fair, I probably have the ark on the brain after listening to gunga explain that the big flood trumps carbon dating.
silly science amuses me...
Ali Baba and the 40 thieves
Looks like all of mine are done, so here's some more:
1. AF1A1FA - The three Musketeers motto.
4. We in the U.S. do not approve of the metric system.
7. Are you prepared for Y10K?
1 -- all for one and one for all
2 -- two heads are better than one
7 -- 1,000 years is a millenium
how 'bout 3CITF?
I was thinking of that old song 'Three Coins in the Fountain."
Heck. I misread 5 and thought I had it as 6 sides on a cube....
I've seen 3. written as 9PITSS, and 8PITSS for a while (poor Pluto), but why is it 7PITSS?
That makes more sense. Not sure what I was thinking of though.
