    Household items...

    There is a similar puzzle that contains two things to find.
    1. A consecutive word, which is a common household item.
    2. A cryptic clue that changes the household item to a 2 word phrase.

    eg.1...Placing the radio on a staircase, it

    Hi Timbo,

    I appreciate your attemp...but I have to ask....! Which part of "School term" is a houshold item?

    This cannot be such a hard puzzle. It's simply a matter of looking for a houshold item and combining another word to it to create a two word phrase!

    Yo Jezza,

    Doing very well in your answers. You are picking out the correct consecutive words. All you need to do is connect the cryptic word to the item.
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">PS... Your bede? is actually "bed"</span hide>

    Here is a hint 4 <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">toilet. What goes with toilet that comes from a forest...or more particularly, a tree. News gets published on it too! Toilet ______?</span hide>

    See if you can complete the rest. Its not too difficult!
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Re: Household items...

    I am not reviving this puzzle, rather (as I promised) to post the answers for those who BRAVELY attempted the challenge. I created these over a span of several evenings, and needed some willing volunteers to attempt to solve it. As they were not published I never knew if they would be easy or difficult, or for that matter solvable at all!!!! The lounge has since informed me that they were pretty much unsolvable.
    For those who attempted them, I humbly apologize for leading you astray and will ensure "as far as humanly possible" never again to publish such a confusing puzzle.
    Now that you know the answers, do you not think that they were quite obvious tooo....(This was my ignorant predicament)
    See attachment for answers!
    Regards,
    Rudi
