The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Wordplay Wednesday - 4/25

Postby bwouns » Wed Apr 25, 2012 4:00 pm

1 Take the full name of an iconic TV character–who has, if memory serves, an orange sofa.

2 Add the letter ‘M’ to the front of the character’s name to get another iconically orange object.

3 Now add the letter ‘E’ and anagram the whole shebang to get the full name of a former world leader–one who shares the same religious persuasion as the TV character, by the way.

Who are they?


Answer:

-Ari Gold
-Marigold
-Golda Meir

I'm going with:

1. Alf
2. Malf (as in Ralph Malf with his orange hair)
3. Flame (as in the Flame of Luanda the famous Angolan revolutionary who was--like Alf--a Melmacian Presbyterian)

My reading comprehension sucks. I thought it was orange soda and was trying to think what Radar O'Reilly's first name was and what religion he was.

Radar was a Satan worshiper. This is established in the classic Season 3 episode "Trapper Finds Out Radar Is a Satan Worshiper."
