    Default B.5 - Amigos

    The glowing screen of a weird-looking PDA appears to be showing some kind of spreadsheet.

    “Tmcky ymu kra Ymu, tekt fs truar tekl trua. Teara fs lm mla kifva wem fs Ymuar tekl Ymu.” ~ Dr. Seuss

    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. ~ Douglas Adams

    Some people are lost in the shuffle. I'm shuffling along with the lost.

    Just a couple of rhymes missing:
    2 slob fork
    7 salad cartons
    *9 wee loch grump
    *16 charm Frasier

    The categories seem to be: tennis players, air companies, animals, actors, tv series, music groups, monopoly squares, food (breakfast)

    Not sure about:
    1 plutonium --> harmonium?
    *2 bear dance --> Air France fair chance?
    5 mourn gunnery --> Sean Connery?
    *10 franc aches --> pancakes?
    *11 Elmo's mace --> Melrose Place?
    *12 czech hen --> chicken? check in?
    14 pygmy spawning --> Gerald Sydney Morning Herald?
    *19 talcum taser --> Malcolm Fraser?

    Could "slob fork" be Boardwalk (monoply)?

    *11 Elmo's mace --> Melrose Place

    I logged off last night, and instantly thought of the Melrose Place, to pair up with 90210. And I think that is pancakes, too. Just my two cents.

    Maybe that Salad Cartons could be Marvin Gardens (is there a rhyme for Marvin that means produce and starts with S)

    I don't like the rhyme. And if they are in groups of three we have a complete set from the London version of Monopoly:
    Whitechapel Road
    Water Works
    Kings Cross station

    Ah, I see Nike Air this morning, and so Wee Loch Grump is Reebok Pump.

    well, they rhyme in my head, which is why I was so doubtful about all the rhymes I proposed last night. Words sound different to me than they do to you

    Do you rhyme with a Spanish accent?

    About the animated characters - mickey mouse, pocahontas and the lion king are all disney, while scooby doo and astro boy are from here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categor...and_characters
    And that's probably where we should find another one. But then Disney doesn't have a * in the group....

    Edit: I was wrong, just ignore this post
