Friday Foxer #31

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 ‘33 things wot you might find in New Zealand’ (‘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 Kiri Te Kanawa was present she might appear as KRT K NW. Kiwi would be KW.

*Hyphens are treated as spaces. Apostrophes are ignored.

SOLUTIONS

Last week’s rithmetic foxers:

(328 – 228) * 8 = 800

(defoxing team: Colonel_K, AFKAMC, Zwack23, Nutfield)

2358 – 1000 + (38 * 16) = 1966

(defoxing team: Viscount, Colonel_K, Nutfield, Electric Dragon)

300 * 31 + 97 – 1919 – 7000 – 473 = 5

(defoxing team: Alison, Colonel_K, Phlebas)
