LAT Fri. 5/13 Gary Lowe
« on: May 13, 2011, 09:28:52 AM »
Mrs. Malaprop Returns

Classic number   OLDIE
Horse power?   HAY
Secret spot?   ARMPIT [deodorant brand]

Nautical beam   KEEL [a keel is more a fin --- though in construction of the hull I guess it may be considered a beam]

Shipmate of Starkey   SMEE [I should’ve read the book; Starkey isn’t in the movie]

Theme: transposed letters (sounds) of common phrases:
SALTEDTUBBER{salted butter}, NONTAFFYDIET{non-fattydiet}, and TOASTSTAMMER{toast master} are reversals of letters and sounds, but HELLSCHICKEN {Hell’s Kitchen ???} isn’t quite right and doesn’t match the others.

RATING:  ? :-\ ? Three grins = Excellent: Loved it; Two grins = Good: Enjoyed it; One grin = Satisfactory: A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Unsatisfying: No fun
