What’s this? A local community magazine for free pops through my door? Ooo, its full of exciting stuff said no one ever although I do find them somewhat entertaining. I did manage to find tucked away at the back a rather curious puzzle page, I have included a quick photo of it here.
As a lover of puzzles I pondered over these mind benders for a while before realising I could do with wasting my life on something useful like plucking out my nasal hairs with pliers after reading the solutions. Have you got the ‘hidden phrases’ yet?
Didn’t think so.
The first is ‘Three Piece Suite’, gettit? don’t worry they get easier.
The second is (drum roll) ‘No Peace For The Wicked’, I always thought it was no rest for the wicked but then again I’m normal and not a professional mind bender which is why the last one *really* makes sense.
It’s football, it’s to do with scores, it’s ‘All For One And One For All’, that’s about as tenuous and tedious as it gets for flips sake.
Anyway, personally it’s about time they upped their game as pretty much the rest of it is assorted articles mixed with advertising, not bad but it could do with a little va va voom. So in the interests of injecting a little excitement into these local magazines why not throw in a few celebrities, as we know, celeb sells, then we may get something like this.
See, looks better already, inside you will find loads of fun articles and words from our sponsors. You too can advertise and receive endorsements from as little as £10 per month for a 1cm x 1cm advert. (Maximum two words, no website address, black and white only, elephants need not apply)
