    Default Anyone good at quizes ?

    Hi all , has anyone got their brainy head on and can help with a few answers to a quiz from the school.

    its Ancronymns... there are some real corkers but i have managed to get all but 3 (i hope) out of 25

    They all start with the corresponding no. eg. 3 BM(SHTR) -three blind mice(see how they run)
    15-fifteen men on a dead man's chest etc

    The three that are eluding me are

    17 OETD

    18 TTS

    23 A(SGD)

    They are propably so obvious, but i just can't see it.

    Thank you x

    Yahhh .. well done hubby as i said its sooo obvious when you get it !!

    I had also thought 18 Three time six but wasn't sure it fitted, now its been suggested i don't feel so daft and think i'll put that down. Form has to be in tomorrow.

    Who knows i could be the owner of a lovey tin of chocs very soon!( i'll share them with you all of course )

    I should have put the whole list on , that would have got you all thinking

    Thank you again
