Friday Foxer #11

Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.

Below is a list of ‘30 things wot are or were pink’ (‘things’ is used in its broadest possible sense). Entries have been stripped of vowels and numbers and have had any inter-word spaces repositioned*. For example, if rosé wine was present it might appear as RSW N. Flamingo would be FLMNG.

*Hyphens are treated as spaces. Apostrophes are ignored.

  1. I admire your enthusiasm and speed, Nutfield… but let some of us thickos have a go!

        • True, true… and on those weeks I kept thinking to myself “where’s gothnak when you need him?”

          Well, I’m sure there’s worse ways to spend your Friday. Where are you in Italy? North or south? I live in Sicily myself… I’m sure you’re managing fine but if you’re around these parts and need a hand, let me know!

          • Ah cool!

            I’m in Todi, looking for a villa in Umbria/Tuscany. Seen a few, one got beaten to, another the sellers can’t work out how to split the money as they are getting divorced, and a third is too expensive at the moment :(.

            Still, got a few to still go and see that we like the look of.

    • I thought they might be in there somewhere; unfortunately, my search for “GLF” didn’t pick up “GL F”.

  2. 30…. I’m stuck on Band-aid sport with… something and something… but I feel I’m way off the mark

  3. Left to find, I think:

      I don’t know whether Tim should be given arithmetic homework or threatened with being made to do lines.
