Wed., 4/10 Peter A. Collins

(1/1)

magus:
THEME:   phrases containing letters the can be joined to make the name of a type of bread
   
GOOD ONES:    
Has a meal {and theme}   BREAKSBREAD [the type of bread is "broken" by intervening letters of the phrase]   
Gas from the past   ESSO ["gas from the past" is an old disk jockey term]   
Social service item?   COFFEEURN [an urn is a "service item" used at "socials," so "social" describes "service item"]   
Where to get off: Abbr.?   STA [to tell someone "where to get off" is to upbraid him --- less popular idiom than it once was]   
   
BTW:   
Oeuf and AMOI are never used in our language.  (Perhaps Peter is more proud of his French I acumen than that of his Spanish I as he chose "It's ANO brainer" over "Year below the border.")   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
