A friend gave me a hard copy of this so I thought I would paste it here so others could try it.

It has compound words and phrases, like in the bottom corner is NIGHT WATCH MAN. I was told that there is 41 compound words or phrases on the sheet.
I'm at 33 but I just started yesterday.

Have Fun!:46:

Ouch. My aching head.

Okay. I'm not an english major, actually hate the subject. A compound word being a word made up of two words joined together is abut all I know.

Question is are all the answers made up of using 3 pictures or more or less?

I'm looking at Pipe Line above the example you gave and wondering if it's correct.

I got three so far:

Pig Backrazor, Safe Cakehands and Bell Butterbutton. Only 30 more to go!
Ummmm, I don't think so unless I'm understanding it wrong.

Remember a compound word is a new (real) word formed from two words.

So your Pig Backrazor should be Razorback Pig.

Butterbutton is not a word, but if you look under the button is a picture of a belly, so, = Bellybutton (compound word).

From the Bell picture go up. Bell+bottom + jeans = Bellbottom (compound word) jeans.


Wow this coming from a guy that failed english in high school.

Well, hell. I guess I'll have to scratch Ship Collarshoe, Hair Camelbox and Couch Quarterlight off my "found" list.

What is the bottom middle picture?
At first I thought it was "wig" but can't come up with anything else that word would work with. Best I can come up with is maybe it's "star" (as in a movie star putting on a wig?) and the thing to the left of it is a rock. Rock star? I think my "movie star" idea is kind of stretching it and I'm grasping at straws, here.

What's the goofy-looking guy to her upper right?

If up on the left is Archie could the other be a persons name? Who?
Could be. The pictures could be drawn that way intentionally, but I'd say based on the "graphics," this thing is about 50 years old. Still entertaining, though.

Between the wife and I we have actually found 43 but are not sure if they are all correct although we think so. What's confusing is that we have found a couple of phrases which do not contain a compound word and it would seem that every answer should have a compound word but.... If we take out the phrase we have 42 compound word phrases.

Phrase is: Heads Will Roll

There are a few pictures we haven't used such as:

A-4, C-10, E-10, E-11, I-9 and if we take out Heads Will Roll, D-10, D-11.

We are using this definition for compound:

Compound words are made by putting two words together to form another word with a different meaning. Two common compound words are "handshake" and "lawsuit." Compound words sometimes need hyphens, as in "able-bodied" or "three-legged."
