Friday Foxer #57

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 on, in, at, or attached to a desk’ (‘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 sealing wax was present it might appear as SLN GWX. Receptionist would be RCPTNST.

*Hyphens are treated as spaces. Apostrophes are ignored.
