Friday Foxer #61

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 Ukraine’ (‘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 ‘Orange Revolution’ was present it might appear as RNGR VLTN. Fear would be FR.

*Hyphens are treated as spaces. Apostrophes are ignored.
