Friday Foxer #155

Every Friday, 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. All are welcome to participate.

Below is a list of ‘33 Things Wot Are On Tim’s Desk At The Moment’ (‘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 Tunnocks Caramel wrapper was present it might appear as TNN CKSCRMLWR PPR. Scissors would be SCSSRS.

* Apostrophes are ignored and hyphens are treated as spaces

  1. I’m looking forward to the ‘What’s in Roman’s pockets?’ edition of this Foxer.

    It’ll probably start like that late night phone-in wordsearch ‘Things you might find in a woman’s handbag’ where one of the answers was ‘sparkplug’.

    It’ll very much end like Bilbo versus Gollum.
