    3 <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">CHILE</span hide> is the only one that springs to mind immediately. (Is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">FIJI</span hide> a country?)

    ooh ooh Sir, ooh Sir

    I have just noticed something else:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Take out one letter and you get new words (had it been MISCHIEF)

    taper,
    sped,
    deal,
    astray,
    unformed,
    snaky,
    reined.

    </span hide>

    Sir, Sir, do I get a prize, Sir Do I?
