    Bind Oven Batter

    In each of the puzzles below, a proverb is written with exactly one letter of each word replaced with another. Can you guess what the original proverbs are?

    1# If as dot oven mill she far lazy sines.
    2# So thing owl heard by tree.
    3# Ill word end so plan takes pack I pull toy.
    4# Calf I load if wetter that so break.
    5# Won't budge I took my ids covet.

    The same principle applies to the rest but, for added spice, the words need to be rearranged.

    6# Take whines she white sin hat.
    7# Nets goof if mews so.
    8# Dime raves is switch I mine.
    9# Peart lads son paint newer pair.
    10# Rose red, so earls no earls.

    How did you get your Dutch signature, and why? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Het vermogen om te leren is een talent;
    De kunde om te leren is een vaardigheid;
    De bereidheid om te leren is een keuze.

    In the past I have used Latin sayings or proverbs for my signatures, but this time I thought I would use a different language. Whilst googling for possible sayings I stumbled across this site.
