Listener No. 4381: Awful by Towser
IP: 37.9.58.44


That was good fun. I clicked the dogs without noses bit pretty quickly, but I didn’t figure out why we had to remove Rs until after I had finished the puzzle. I must have studied the abbreviations in Chambers hundreds of times but I have never noticed it says that R is sometimes called the ‘dog letter’. The trilling of the tongue it mentions, which is much more pronounced here in Spain, doesn’t seem very doggy to me, but I am a cat person so what would I know. Thanks very much, Towser. (Or should it be Owser?)
