Good morning class, here are again! Doodle and *Chewy , get out of that Alphabet Bar!!!

Today's problem contains no trickery, nor BODMAS! (Unless you want it to! wink ).
It is exactly what you see.

Good luck. No explanations, please, until later, just your answer. Spoils it for others.

Another one here for 9

Here is another wee puzzle to keep you going.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has a long one. Michael J. Fox has a short one. Madonna does not use hers. Bill Clinton always uses his. The Pope never uses his. What is it?

Sorry I’m late Miss but went to Tesco for your apple.....and it’s Orgasmic! Is my spelling getting worse?

Anyway I think it’s 9 and the t’other answer is Surname!

9 for me too!

I like the sound of that apple Pantglas. Did they have any more, or was there a mad scramble for them? I'm going to try and sneak out at break time to get one.

Bathsheba Fri 17-Apr-20 10:34:14

Oh, just spotted the second teaser. Yes, it's surname!

Bathsheba Fri 17-Apr-20 10:34:45

Or to be politically correct, in these multi-cultural days, it's the family name.

Love the new hair Doodle! Have you got any spare dye you could send round?

Or . . . we could distract Miss and spray her hair?


Surname / family name

9 and surname

Doodle Fri 17-Apr-20 11:10:20

squiffy hee hee do you think we’d get away with it. I’ve still got some left. You can have it is you want grin

Feelingmyage55 Fri 17-Apr-20 11:12:28

9 but only cos I went back after getting 19 and seeing the other answers. So I checked and then got 9. surname for the other one. miss, some people were passing notes back and fore. I think they were playing “consequences” cos of all the folds.

Feelingmyage55 Fri 17-Apr-20 11:13:52

Miss can we do “magic squares” please? I’ll come in on time, honest.

Bathsheba Fri 17-Apr-20 11:20:28

We weren't playing consequences FMA, we were explaining what orgasmic means. With pictures. That's why it had to be folded.
