Friday Foxer #73

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 are or were red’ (‘things’ is used in its broadest possible sense). Entries have been stripped of vowels and have had any inter-word spaces repositioned*. For example, if ‘Massey Ferguson tractor’ was present it might appear as MS SYFRG SNTRCTR. Ruby would be RBY.

*Hyphens are treated as spaces. Apostrophes are ignored. Sometimes repositioning spaces isn’t possible

  1. 13 could be ANDEAN OVEN, maybe. I mean they did make them out of adobe, which is reddish.

    Or Indian, like a tandoor oven, although as far as I can tell they`re not traditionally red. The tandoori chicken that comes out of them is, though!
