Nursery Rhyme Quiz Part 3....

Fancy a bit of fun?

Try your hand at working out what Nursery Rhymes the following initials stand for. You can get the kids and grandkids to help you out - don't laugh it's not as easy as it sounds!

Example: B.B.B.S.H.Y.A.W. - Baa Baa Black sheep Have You Any Wool - get the gist?

Email (through my profile) your answers to me in the next week, then next week I'll post the answers and the winner(s).

All those who get any right can claim this badge for their blog.

Josh at the Gabbatha very kindly made it for me, isn't he clever!

    OK here they are

    1. L.B.D.D.L.G.

    2. B.A.G.C.O.T.P.

    3. C.A.D.D.

    4. S.S.M.A.P.G.T.T.F.

    5. D.D.B.P.I.T.W.

    6. G.P.P.A.P.

    7. G.G.G.W.S.I.W.

    8. B.B.B.D.G.A.H

Good Luck.

There was, back in the 70s, a magazine called Games and every month they included a puzzle containing a string of letters (like you have in your post) that represented quotations, nursery rhymes as well as other things .. we loved working them out ..

Ill watch from the side line... :)

Nessa said...

This is a clever idea, but you have no idea how much i hate acronyms. Dyslexia will only allow me to watch this game from the sidelines.

Akelamalu said...

Got your entry Thom, glad you enjoyed it. :)

Well there are a lot more than this G-man, this is the 3rd lot I've run as a comp and I still have some in reserve!

I think you have enough to think about at the moment Bee, I'll let you off. xx

Well come back later SAW, you have a week to think about them. ;)

I hope you're going to have a go at these them Daryl?

Are you sure you won't just try Buff? You get the award if you only get 1 right!

OK Nessa if you're sure?

Posted my entry in early hours of this morning - I already have your email (let me know if it didn't arrive) but have to confess to not finding one on your profile... has it moved? Hope it is the same address or my entry is in cyberspace somewhere!
