    Body Parts...

    I'm sure curiosity got you here <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    You're going to wish you'd passed this one up... but now you that you're here, you've got to participate.

    The object is to identify body parts that are spelled with five letters. No plurals, no abbrev., and no slang. Just good ol' five-letter words. The winner is the person who posts the 30th word. I'll get the list started with three words.

    1. brain
    2. blood
    3. nerve

    edited by stuart when I read the instructions and realised that Bones is a plural, so I changed it

    Since I couldn't have bones, how about

    13. Tibia
    14. Fibia
    15. Ulnus

    and on a more fluid level we could have

    16. Mucus
    17. Lymph
    18. Vomit

    Re: Body Parts...

    I guess I got the 'fluid' thing going with my entry of <font color=red>blood</font color=red> but vomit is a bit of a s t r e t c h when we're talking body parts, huh? So, seeing as how I just appointed myself as judge of the puzzle, I'm disallowing 'vomit'.

    So let's continue with..

    18. Liver
    19. Cheek
    20. Flesh

    Re: Body Parts...

    At last... a puzzle I can contribute to without my only-just-better-than-average Maths skills making me look silly.

    21. Tooth
    22. Beard
    23. Groin

    and will you allow ... 24. Tummy... as I suppose this might count as 'slang' for Stomach?

    24. Digit
    25. Pupil
    26. Anvil
    27. Navel (& fluff???)
    28. Trunk
    29. Scalp
    30. Gland
    31. Chest
    32. Waist

    ... and all without googling! (Probably watching too much Casulty / ER).

    So what's the prize - a game of Operation?

    Tony.

    The Prize

    The game 'Operation' would've been just the thing, but I didn't have one in my pix folder. So, you'll just have to accept some cold hard cash...
