    Complete the ???

    Use your ingenuity to replace ??? in each sentence with an appropriate word.

    1#
    While making deep excavations we found some quaint ??? jewelry

    2#
    Woven silk pyjamas exchanged for blue ???

    3#
    Travelling beneath the ??? sky in our jolly ox-cart, we often hit bumps quite hard.

    4#
    The ??? gown marked a very brazen exposure of juicy flesh.

    5#
    Sixty ??? were quickly picked from the woven jute bag.

    Re: Complete the ???

    ok, here are my silly suggestions ...

    1) dwarven
    2) cattle prod
    3) chicken little
    4) gaffer tape
    5) noses

    And if I can have lots more than 1 (or 2) words, then

    5) Sixty <font color=blue>years ago tomorrow, my uncle called me into his den and started to lay down the rules to how I was going to rule his kingdom. From that day forward I have tried with all my might, wit and compassion to live upto his ideals. Now, today, this very minute, I have found his diary that really explains some of his greatest decisions. You see, he had this system where marbles </font color=blue> were quickly picked from the woven jute bag.

    <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15> Briilliant Tim, but single word answers only. As a matter of interest, not one of your many words in answer to 5# satisfy the criterion for the solution.
    Keep'em coming.

    Does <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">bronze</span hide> work for 1?

    Re: Complete the ???

    There are criteria?? The only possible one I saw was "ingenuity".

    Re: Complete the ???

    Ingenuity you have aplenty, Tim. However, the key word is appropriate.

    Re: Complete the ???

    You got there, Leif, but I'd like to know which <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">quiz </span hide> shows you've been watching. Turquoise is good but I prefer <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">risque</span hide> anytime. <img src=/S/eyeout.gif border=0 alt=eyeout width=15 height=15>

    Re: Complete the ???

    If by watching you mean TV, then the answer is none. It's not just that I don't watch quiz shows, I don't actually have a set to watch! I was struggling until I got the clue from Rory and Tony's posts. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
