Two weeks with no winners. This puzzle was really hard. So, my thought process was like this: On the left side, all of the multiplication or TIMES problems were correct. It couldn't get any better. In fact, you could say "It was the best of times." Do I need to explain the right side?
The famous literary quote is from "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens. In fact, that whole first paragraph has some good "What in the World" puzzles hiding in it.
There were many incorrect guesses last week such as "A penny for your thoughts" (Good, but no thought bubbles) "Money Talks" (Too broad. This is more specific). So I have decided to put this one back in the "Ready To Use" folder for another day. Meanwhile, keep the comments coming here. Maybe someone will actually get it right.
Four of the five winners entered what I thought of when I created this: Forever and Ever. James A suggested Around forever and ever which I thought was close enough.
The animation shows "the word" going from compact normal print to a spread out style.
So, the correct answer to the puzzle is also my wish. I hope that you spread the word to all your friends about this website and weekly puzzle. We've been stuck at 16 likes for quite some time now. I'm hoping we can build that up.
After having no winners the week before, we got seven when I added the hint. But, sis the hint make it too easy? Let me know your thoughts.
OK, so technically there's more than one mouth inside "Word", but when I tried the picture with only one mouth, you couldn't tell what it was.
That's more than just a wish this time of year, it's the solution to last week's puzzle. Congratulations to Jenni from Madison for getting the answer right, although I do like the answer that Evelyne V from France gave: "Variety is the spice of life." I may have to work that in to a future WIR.
As I said in the hint, you need to know a little chemistry. But since no one got the correct solution, I'll leave it open to discussion.
