Some fun with letters

Postby Darryl Strawberry » 07 Dec 2017, 20:49

Paging Rayge... (and others)

1. Which eight letter English words contains five Ss?
2. Which astronomical term included three alternate Ys?
3. Which gossipy phrase includes six Ts in its 12 letters?
4. Which English football team includes four Ls in its eight letters?
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
